Speakers so loud…

2006-05-31

The sub woofer thumped and kicked the Cr (of YCbCr) right out of the back of the player. Admitedly it wasn’t plugged in well since it’s in a transition period but that’s still loud!

Upgrade RealVNC

Day before yesterday my honey pot windows machine was compromised. This was expected behaviour and the reason it was easy to get into is outlined here (link).

Please be sure to upgrade RealVNC if you’re running it. Also, what is a Honey Pot? Find out Here!.

Design time!

2006-05-17

While wandering around tonight I spent a good five minutes thinking about a game that was started a year ago. I wasn’t really happy with the previous game design, it lacked some direction and was incomplete. Nevertheless we journeyed on and created an alpha that wasn’t as much fun as I thought it would be. So it was shelved for a bit while other projects were tooled around with.
While I was wandering around I did a redesign and the new result is one that I’m happy with and is going to be fun to play as well as being exciting. As soon as a few other projects are out of the way it’s full steam ahead.

E3: THQ, breakin’ my heart

2006-05-16

Normally I love THQ games but one game is going to be seriously feelin’ my disdain (ewww, gross sentencification).

Saints Row is a 100% GTA rip off. Driving around, stealing cars, killing people…100%. Why would you make a game like this? Because the GTA name currently has a stigma among parents, grandparents, and aunts/uncles who buy it for their hyperactive gun crazy teenage sons, grandsons, nephews (remember that whole hot coffee overhype?).

In anycase, the engine is a whole lot nicer with better graphics and a smoother soundtrack so at least the programmers did a good job.

Nick Rules

2006-05-15

I must say that, without a doubt, Nick Swardson is one of the greatest actors of all time. Not only does he act but he writes and produces!
He plays an awesome character on “Reno 911” (and the upcoming movie) and his game in “Grandma’s Boy” was top notch.

Done!

2006-05-13

E3 is done for this year…look forward to my return on Saturday night (EST) and look forward to new things in the future (vague!).
