Cash Crate

Don't knock this stuff, I've been on it for about two hours and made $22.50. If you have nothing better to do than to sit on your ass filling out surveys, then this is easy money. Also, you can refer other people, and make money off of them making money. Which is what I'm trying to do now. So try it out, and we'll all make some spending money.

Medal of Honor Beta, continued...

I've been playing the MoH beta recently, and the gameplay is kinda solid. And that irks me, because a few things could be done to make it better. For one, bring over the 'Point Spawn' system from BC2. That was useful, because choosing 'Front Line' as a spawn point is vague. And stupid. Expect to die a lot spawning on the front line. Second, make the text NOT have lens flare. I can't read a goddamned thing unless I stare up into the sky at the right angle. Third, make the radar bigger, and make it so I can actually tell what's going on. And finally, give me some more weapons and classes! I know, I know, it's just a beta. But I play a beta to see whether or not I'll be buying the game (in addition to bug-finding and such). The game I played is worth $20, tops. And even then I'd wait for it to go on sale. And though they tout the single player as the most realistic, and they consulted all the experts, at the end of the day, multiplayer is where the staying power is. And as it stands, BC2 and MW2 are miles ahead. Which brings me to my final point about MoH: use the goddamn Title and Emblem system from MW2! For fuck's sake, everyone should be doing this. The customization of CoD games recently has been incredible. And I want to be rewarded for my headshots/killstreaks/cool things I do. And I want to show off those rewards. That's why I played MW2 for about 9 straight days worth of gameplay. It certainly wasn't because I liked getting knifed by 12 year olds...

Medal of Honor

Maybe work on the balance a bit, guys. Those killstreaks are downright retarded. Also, the gameplay is bland, the maps are horrific, and there's no real "meaty" sense of hitting someone with (or being hit by) bullets.

PS: I'm PicoSuarez.

Linux, and Why I'm Retarded.

Never mind, you guys. Turns out updates are actually important in Linux.


I may never return to Windows. Except for gaming...

Linux, And Why People Won't Use It

Set up a server for Minecraft on a Netbook copy of Linux. I dare you. There's a lot of shit you have to wade through. Linux is a balance of convenience and utter self-mutilation. So make sure you know what the hell you're doing before you format and reinstall with Linux. Maybe just boot it in a virtual machine. Or just over an old laptop like I did. I'd go so far as to say that using Linux is rewarding. But it's not easy. And I can't game on it. Linux is useful for about one thing (to me): running a Minecraft server. And I have to jump through some goddamn hoops to do it.

Apparently, we have a free money opportunity on our hands.

They give you money for referring people, and just for being a part of it. If nothing else, you get 50 bucks on signup. Why not give it a try?

Something Important, For A Change

Some of you may have noticed that I put up a new banner (but I doubt it). The video game voters network isn't an ad for money. It isn't some scam to make me a quick buck every time you guys look at my page. This is a serious thing that I care about. The Video Game Voters Network is a campaign for video game equality. Video games are the progression of media, taking the place of books and movies. If you don't believe me (and you're over 12 years old), think back to how many books you used to read before you got that SNES or Nintendo 64 or Playstation. Now think about how many books you've read in the past two years.


Now, video games are receiving the same treatment books and movies got in the past, insomuch as they are 'to blame' for the world's violence, and 'the cause' of all evil in this world. But we know better. The VGVN is working to change that view, and make video games universally accepted forms of entertainment (Amish community nonwithstanding), and they need our support. If ever you threw a fist gloriously into the air at the end of a level; if ever you screamed at the gods themselves after dying for the four hundredth time; if ever you wept openly when Aeris died, let you now make your voice heard!

PS: Spoiler alert, if anyone still exists that doesn't know what happened in Final Fantasy 7.

Seriously, you guys. Seriously. This game is incredible, it's made by one dude, and it's 13 stupid dollars.

Let me break this down for you. This crazy 8-bit world is inhabited by zombies, skeletons, giant spiders, and you. Oh, and farm animals. Oh, and any of your friends who want to play online with you. Personal and public servers means that you can play with your buds, or just make some online friends. Or troll the shit out of people. The emphasis of this game is on emergent gameplay. You start with nothing, but soon, you have a little dirt hut to keep the monsters out. Then, when the cleansing fire of the sun kills off the enemy, you exit and begin to explore, and build, and mine. See, the best part of Minecraft isn't even on the surface. Seems obvious, but the meat of this game lies under the crust. Once you dig down a bit, you find caves. VAST caves. Caves that you can get lost in. That you will get lost in. Mining is everything in this game. Day one sees you in a hole in the ground, listening to the moans of zombies and the clacking of skeletons, and wondering if all you've done is dug yourself a tomb. Day two sees new knowledge, and the crafting of new and exciting tools. Day three breaks over your mighty new castle, as you stand atop it, staring defiantly into the horizon over a moat of lava.And day one hundred marks the beginning of your unemployment, or failed classes, or the dead of your friendships. This game is fucking addictive like you dream of. And once you play this, you'll understand why it's the best 13 dollars you ever spent. Until your electricity bill goes unpaid. Again.

Go on. Buy it.

Totally neat, the way it works. Found it from my friend Free from Iceland.

Man, I'm Behind (Dead Rising 2)

Forgot another thing! Good lord, I'll never take a break again.

PLAY DEAD RISING 2. My goodness. This game has everything. Zombies, fighting, millions of items, casinos, boobies, motorcycles, psychopaths, duct-tape, killing machines crafted from duct-tape, a parasol in a leaf-blower that is used as a charge/stab weapon, and fedoras. EVERYTHING.

You guys. Play it.

PS: Unforgivable boss fights. Classic Capcom.

Path of Exile

I forgot to mention this sweet game that's in development. Did you ever wonder how Diablo 2 and Final Fantasy VII would be if they merged? Check this, bro. It goes into beta in January, and they're planning to let in people who are active on the forums. So get in on this, because it should be great.

New Keyboard

My Logitech G15 is reaching the end of its days, as I may have mentioned. To go into further detail, the right shift key is sticky beyond the point of repair, the screen is cracked, and my spacebar key is being difficult. I can't find the same keyboard for under $100 (they have similar ones, but the screen doesn't flip up...), so I'm looking around for another. Mayhaps the G110 ( There are a lot of good features on this board, and I love the blue backlight option for matching my case fan LEDs (I am so vain.). Hit me with some suggestions or opinions, because this purchase needs to happen soon.

Happy birthday!

To that most hated/favorite site of mine. You know who you are, brothers.
