I guess this deserves a post.
You have no doubt noticed (unless this is your first visit, in which case, I welcome you) that our theme is a little different.
Okay, well, it’s a different theme, it just looks similar to our old one. Commentator, friend and all-around swell guy Giga pointed out that the old theme was a bit cramped in terms of displaying post content in an at-a-glance sort of page organization manner.
So this one takes the more streamlined blog look, with posts listing downwards ’til they can’t list no more (or until they reach 10 in number, whichever comes first). It kind of permits easier skimming, instead of putting each and every post up on the pedestal that is (was) its own page.
We still rebel a bit with the one-column layout; imho it helps to establish a more content-centric blog. Instead of looking like a whole website’s front page, it just looks like a big list of stories and thoughts, with some sprinkles of navigation down at the very bottom.
I guess that’s it for now. I’m also semi-working on the next game load.
Oh, and the theme is called ChaosTheory, and I wish I could credit the author(s), but no names are anywhere to be found.
Ok, so this past month has been crazy! So many games have released in such a short frame of time! Its insane! On top of all this, I have just received a new computer from my brother, (thank you Jimmy!) this has opened up a WHOLE new world of opportunities! Now I can actually play games that I was previously not able to on my old computer! (pictures of my rig soon to come!)
So first off, I made a “pact” with Skoh-Fley. If I got a new computer or if I reformatted- I would start playing WoW (World of Warcraft for the acronym inept) again. So I have new computer so I started playing WoW again- and man is it awesome! It runs way above 60 FPS virtually all the time now! When I first started playing WoW- I thought it was “ok” because not only did it look ugly on my old computer- but it just seemed like boring complex game. Second time around, my opinion has changed- the game is really fun and addicting! All my friends play it and it looks great!
Now, not only do I get to play WoW again, I can play HL2 (Half-Life 2 for the people who hate all things good) at a decent frame rate finally! No more blurry ass textures! No more slowdown! Yay! Skoh was nice enough to lend me the Orange Box, so I have been basically playing through HL2:Episode 1+2 and Portals. I still cant get over the initial fact that my computer can now run these games. Whenever I read about a new PC game coming out I was like- whatever, I won’t even be able to play it anyways- BUT now thats not the case! I can totally play virtually any game! HELL YEAH!
So now with that update and excitement out of the way, I can fill you in on a story! If you clicked on this story and saw the title and expected to find porn, well, there is none. This story will only really interest the people who played HL2:E1 or likewise.
Its late at night, on a Wednesday, I had just finished a episode of my podcast (PopCast- soda reviewing). We reviewed Redbull and we ended at like 10pm. Totally not a good idea to drink a full can of Redbull and have it already be 10pm because I felt like I should still stay up and do something. Naturally I booted up HL2: Episode 1 since my rig can tear it up. Bad idea. I’m not really a wimp, but when it comes to tense games like F.E.A.R and Doom III, I hate them. Being scared sucks and it makes the game not fun. So I’m playing HL2 in the dark, with headphones at what is now 1am. Worst thing ever! I was scared shitless! There is a part in HL2:E1 where you are in an underground parking garage and its pitch black except for what your flash light shows. The thing is that the flashlight dies out after like 25 seconds of being continuously on and you have to turn it off to recharge it! So I’m running around seeing tons of zombies, headcrabs and other shit coming at me- and then my flashlight dies and I can’t see anything but I can hear all of their fucking zombie moaning noises! So I’m freaking out trying to find a place I can at least run too but I can’t see anything so I end up running into either more zombies or a wall! Ah! I hate it so much! I had to use all of my determination to get through that level. And after I stopped playing I was paranoid that those goddamn head crabs would start pouring into my room or zombies would be hanging around my bathroom. Never again. Never again will I drink caffeinated drinks, stay up late and play scary games in the dark at 1am. Terrible idea. They don’t mix. Its like what police officers are always telling teenagers. Don’t drink and drive. Don’t drink and play survival horror games at night.
I still have nightmares about that cat……
Since wordpress won’t allow us to edit themes or let us be creative in anyway without demanding our precious pennies- we are stuck using this theme and system (which
sucks is ok, for now). Since we will be posting lots of links and pictures, don’t freak out if you don’t see anything in our posts on the front page. You have to actually click on the post to see all of it and the content. We will embed all our pictures and videos, so you don’t have to be redirected to another site- unless its a link to something (duh) or if there was no way we could embed it. So sit back and enjoy the awesome content we will be feeding you!
Don’t understand? Then you are this animal.
