Oh hell yes , i just need to hope the controller settings will be good enough so that i can use my Ps2 controller and don’t have to ever experience playing SF4 with my 360 control.
Speaking of xbox controllers , i have 6 now. Along with 2 xbox’s.
My uncle gave my brother his old semi-working xbox (which suffered from overheating , non working disk eject button and a non working power button [it just starts automatically and you cant turn it off without unplugging it]) , he also gave me a shitton of games – although only a few good ones (halo1 , 2 , burnout revenge) – and then 4 controllers , 2 of which are officials and of those two 1 of which work.
Mum then decided to buy a preowned xbox because that one kept overheating , £20 for xbox plus 2 official controllers. So uh… yeah.

Nothing to blog , so some shots of seans media center PC heatsink.
Its big which allows for maximum ponage cooling.
Hardcore overclockers like sean need this shit. Even if its for his backup/mediacenter pc
If you want to read the rest of it and i know you all do because you’re all techbums , the full article is here :
Those are two pizzas which actually exist (or existed) in Korea , Kinda like the pepperoni pizza crust shit they have going over here in the UK , only more insane.
I have to say , both of those do not look particularly great for eating , and i do question how the fuck the Shrimp one is even eaten since the crust pretty much disappears , maybe if you fold it (like that asshole cross does) then it’ll work.
On a semi-related note , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbEjSI6JmWY – looks semi disgusting but semi nice at the same time , 100% unhealthy though , especially if we consider that Pizza is supposedly the most unhealthy food you can eat.
Not much to say today , im listening to the new Pendulum album as i type this , its pretty awesome so far.
Ive been searching around for a copy of Age of Conan to import (since we have to get the fucking US copy) , not much luck finding anything south of 30 quid so far , with most places being like £32 including shipping.
I haven’t paid over £30 for a game since… Hell i cant even remember the last time i paid that much , even the club wasn’t THAT expensive.
Needless to say , if i do end up getting this game (and i probably will) it better be pretty fucking good.
I realise £30 isn’t even that much considering that you gets a months free play with it , which is probably the equivalence of £8 or something but it still seems pretty deep after playing Phantasy Star Universe which was the most amazing £7.50 I’ve ever spent , even if we didn’t use the entire months subscription properly.
Also. Those considering Denmark – we should probably all get together on vent sometime and all book tickets together otherwise we probably wont end up doing it – which would be a huge shame.
Possibility of there being a Meng , Boyce , Leetfella , Werner Boogle (whom we’re all going for really) , Nguman and Cross.
uhm… anything else to add…
R-Type Commands (PSP) is shit.
It feels like Advance wars without the speed or fun elements , the battle sequences are all very boring and the game in general seems to move incredibly slow.
Apolagies for the lack of dreams on my dreamblog , i keep forgetting to write them down or i just cant remember them or they just plain suck.
So on saturday night i went to a partay thing , which was kinda cool.
Highlight would have to be the trampoline
So anyway , onto the intresting part of the night.
We talked to the party host about when the last buses are to go back to town , he said 12:50 or somewhere around that. So we were thinking ‘mkay , we can stick around abit more i guess’
We left for the bus stop at around 12:10 , got there at 12:17…
Last bus : 12:07
We stand at the bus stop and consider how on earth we can get to town.
We set off for the train station , half way there , one of the others with me has a brainwave and calls up her sister.
We’re heading to her sisters house then.
10-15 minute trek later we arrive there.
Hawk gets the sofa , i got the edge of an airbed – with 2 other people on , so pretty much the slightest movement on anyones part ends up in a monster earthquake.
After some initial arguments and people moving around in the dark and smacking me in the crotch – we started to notice some of the smaller details of the flat. . .
– The door to the room where we were all sleeping had a dangly thingy over it , like chains over the door that smack into each other when you walk through – the problem with this is that you feel kinda bad going to the toilet in the middle of the night incase you wake anyone up.
– There are disco balls outside on the balcony , 3 of them. *shrugs*
– … There are crickets. In the kitchen. They are NOISY. GODDAYUM. How the hell can such a small creature make so much fucking noise! its ridiculous!
– Windchime , directly outside the room *facepalm*
Total Sleep during the night : 1 hour out of potential 6 hours.
– ps. everyone snores :/
So its no secret that some of us have been considering picking up ‘Age Of Conan’ when it comes out and such. – Although I will have to be waiting until after Friday the 13th of June to get it and play (because thats when the last of my exams end)
I was browsing the Widescreen Gaming Forum when i came across an AOC thread , heres what the people in there said about it…
“ Graphics are insanely nice! I am playing at 1920×1200 with 8xAA and everything on high. Beautiful world (from what I have seen) and JetSonic was right about the water! best I’ve seen in ANY game. The developers claim DX10 is not implemented yet, but there is an option to turn it on in the settings and to enable SM 3.0. Doing that does make the game look a lot better.”
“ Combat is very fun once you get it out of your head that you can’t just right click a mob 50 feet away and it will automatically run you to him and start attacking. It’s very fun to have to swing your weapons manually, despite how tiresome it may sound. It gets to be second nature after only 10 to 15 minutes of playing. The combat system is much more advanced in this game compared to most MMO’s which is why I feel PvP is going to be very, very fun in the future!”
“Wha? if you take all your cloths off you actually get nekid??” (see below)
“ Variety. There are three races and TWELVE classes to chose from. It reminds me of EQ2 when I used to play. You don’t see the same old five classes etc.. It’s nice to have that variety, and I think that will play a large role in the PvP mechanics.”
“I chose Cultural PvP because I like that you are only PvP’ing the other two races (there are three). It gives it more of a normal feel to PvP.”
“ I play the game on low settings but i still use the 1920 x 1200 resolution, no shadows or grass, but I still get lots of foilage and bushes and trees view distance turned way down for now, getting 25fps avg frame rates. Runs very nice on these settings. My specs:
Pentium D Dual Core 3ghz 2gb Ram Nvidia 7800 video card“
“ Install for this game took about an 1hr. Yea that’s right, about 30gigs of space is needed to load up this monster, OMG”
Also , heres the picture you’ve all been waiting for~
So heres a summary:
– Shit is huge , 30gb.
– If we do play , it’ll only be cool after Friday the 13th
– leetfella plays a priest
– Anony plays whatever character dies fastest so he can get really angry and be amazing
– Cross plays whatever and does the most damage regardless of what class he goes , he also ends up with the most money and best equips
– Boyce plays the soldier.
– Meng plays the class that gets mob control skills
– Everyone plays females , since apparently you can take your top off and show your bewbs.
– We choose a PVP server and hang around in mobs , or pretend to be leave someone as bait and then as soon as they get attacked we all appear from behind trees and shit and gank their ass silly.
– DId i mention bewbs?
– Also, leetfella buys a new graphics card , otherwise he runs REALLY FUCKING SLOW , is it because im a robot guys? leave me some of the items , guys.. GUYS..
So street gears is coming to Europe in June apparently, ported/translated/whatever by the people who did FLYFF
I really hope that when this game comes its as amazing as it looks in videos.
And by videos i’m referring solely to this pile of awesome right here
That video seriously looks like Jet Set Radio Racing online – like those race segments from the original game. And if i can race with people online and grind and backflip all other the place im going to be a very happy Meng.
Art style seems great too (and by that i mean i <3 cel shading)
The new patch is out at last.
Click here to see list of download mirrors
(you can always download through your game client ofc.)
Heres the major parts of the update , although you can view the full changelog here
- We've added new customization options for turret lock-on warnings, so
you can now get the full warning (beep and text), just the warning
tone, just the HUD text, or nothing at all. Mine trigger warnings can
similarly be toggled on or off and it's also possible to set the size
of the mine indicators on the HUD or turn those off completely.
- We also found that a lot of people didn't quite understand the Hot
Servers tab in the server browser, so we've thrown that out in favor of
a much more straightforward 'Join Best Server' button.
- It's now possible to set mouse sensitivity on a per-vehicle basis, so
if you'd like your mouse to be really twitchy in flying vehicles and
far less responsive in, say, the Trojan APC, you can do just that
- In the statistics department, the in-game scoreboard once again
correctly displays player ranks (example), so you can quickly tell who's
experienced and thus safe to follow around in the game.
- Vehicle and
deployable kills are now counted correctly in your statistics,
- 1.5 also comes with a large number of bug and exploit fixes. Some of
these are actually quite inventive, such as using the Third Eye Camera
to transmit an objective when the player is actually nowhere near it,
or using an Icarus vehicle drop to teleport inside a building.
” Finally, more information on Phantasy Star Portable has surfaced. The biggest reveal involves the ability to import characters from Phantasy Star Universe — the console game that PSP is based on. Players of the PS2 and PC versions of Phantasy Star Universe may import their characters and carry over their character’s name and personal data as well as currently equipped cloths and parts. Level, however, will be capped at level 20 and spare equipment, special items, etc. will not be carried over. Those with a 360 PSU will not be able to import any data at all.”
