Been a while…

December 12, 2009

So it’s been a while since our last post.  For anyone following this page, well, i’m sure you’ve moved on.  But guess what??   We’re back!!  For how long you ask?  Your guess is as good as ours.

Well to get back in the swing of things, I’ll start out with the most recent video game experiences, which would have to be the new content in World of Warcraft.  Patch 3.3 dropped this past Tuesday.  Patch notes can be found here.  Three new dungeons and a new raid have dropped with this patch, with the new raid eventually leading to a fight to end the Lich King once and for all (atleast until the raid reset).  But we won’t even get to see the Lich King for quite some time, as Blizzard is to release new bosses in the raid periodically, with the next set of bosses to be released in a little less than one month.   Also, if you haven’t played in a while, and wish to be a part of the the fal of the Lich King, gearing up for the new content is easy as pie with the new patch.  So what are you waiting for???

Let’s see if I can keep up with posting entries on the site regularly again.  Or even convince the other posters on the site to do the same.  More to come in the next couple days.

Quite simply…  the answer to our prayers or Satan in disguise?! Its fate is its own to decide.  This could be a huge success or a gargantuan failure.  If successful this would revolutionize the way games are marketed, sold and experienced.  Guess we will just have to wait and see….

Be a Champion!

March 24, 2009

So I’m really pumped about Champions Online. Absurdly so. I even started drawing up what my hero would look like… About halfway through I realized I was drawing the stupidest thing ever and proceeded to start over and create a second stupidest thing ever.

Sigh. Just watch the videos already.

“The music that you hear is coming from the sparks that these two identical high power solid state Tesla coils are generating. There are no speakers involved. The Tesla coils stand 7 feet tall and are each capable of putting out over 12 foot of spark. They are spaced about 18 feet apart. The coils are controlled over a fiber optic link by a single laptop computer. Each coil is assigned to a midi channel which it responds to by playing notes that are programed into the computer software. What is not obvious is how loud the coils are. They are well over 110dB. Listen for the echo after the notes stop. These coils were constructed by Steve Ward and Jeff Larson. Programming and musical content by Steve Ward. Video was captured by Terry Blake and edited by Jeff Larson.”

Pretty amazing!

A New Megaman?!

March 20, 2009

Want to play some Megaman but don’t know which one to play again?  Well how about a NEW one to play?  This demo video, brought to you by wartwartx, aka Peter Sjostrand (a graphic designer/animator), introduces a brand new element to the game.  That’s right, 2.5D, a mix between 2D and 3D that provides an almost Paper Mario type of feel.  But here’s the spoiler:  this video demo probably is not going to come to your fingertips at any point in the future, unless Capcom snatches up the idea, which seems pretty unlikely. Enjoy the video though.

A cool Half Life inspired video from these guys…

Very well done… Catch it while you can. Supposedly they will be deleting it soon. However their site may suggest that something more will come of this.
