No updates for a bit

At least from me. I just got my computer parts in and am in the process of setting everything up and getting things installed. I'll be getting my Win 7 disk tonight and will install it tomorrow after work, so the earliest you'll see an update would be Saturday or Sunday.

There's a possibility I might be able to get Tempest to get off his lazy ass and write an article or two, but I'm not promising anything.

Sooo.. it's official now

PETA is full of trolls.

PETA has now named Adult Swim's Polar Bear Payback their most animal friendly game of the year for its reversal of the usual man on animal violence we see so often.

4chan... DDoS'd?

The asshole of the internet has been out assholed. I never thought this day would come, but 4chan is now down due to a DDoS attack . Some of you may be asking yourself, "what's a DDoS attack?", or "why should I care?". Well, the answer to those are this and "You shouldn't," respectively.

Samsung MP3 Player

So, it looks like the success of the Galaxy S phones has stoked the fire of Samsung success.  In the wake of this massive push, Samsung has also slated an MP3 Player to come out some time next year.  This item has been built to rival, or best, the iPod touch, and if anything on the market will be able to end the reign of the i"insertwordhere", it's this thing.

Merry Christmas!

Just wanted to pop in and give you guys a bit of filler wish you all a merry Christmas from everyone here at SDT!

Bloodlines Released

The open beta has taken a step forward today (Or maybe it was yesterday? Being sick messes with your days.) When the game was first opened to the general public, the 'free' users were unable to play with the larger part of the characters.

Net Nuetrality...getting fought against?

There's a lot of fighting going on over how to make money with the whole Net Neutrality thing. I'm not actually completely sure what the entire thing is. According to most people, it's the ISP companies wanting to charge people to use the more common sites. I can grasp this concept pretty easily, but it just doesn't make much sense to me.

I knew this day would come...

So, a couple of money hungry wireless companies carriers have openly spoken about charging us to use their service to access the services of others.  By that, I mean AT&T and Verizon have said that they'll be charging us to use services such as Youtube, Skype, Facebook, etc.  Essentially, this would make you pay to access the internet after already being charged to access the internet because of the high amounts of bandwidth used in these activities.  If you've taken economics, you may know this term as double counting, and if you haven't, you know this as highway robbery.

Interactive Comics, Quick and Easy

It looks like we're in the middle of the new generation of games. Look back to your past, and you can probably notice the patterns. Each generation begins with new games coming out, people fighting over which of the games are better than the others, etc etc. A year later, those games get sequels and the vigor inside everyone's heart is renewed to fuel further fighting.

Champion Your Bloodline

Anyone who knows my gaming preferences knows my deep love for Bloodline Champions, an arena based PVP game.  The core feature of the game is its competitive balance.  There are no auto hit abilities (with a very few support ability exceptions), and no auto attacks.  Passive effects are uncommon, with active abilities dominating the game.  There are four general archetypes for the Bloodlines which fit the usual stuff: Tank, Melee Damage, Ranged Damage, and Support.

Although the support 'class' is also known as the healer class, each Bloodline is generally self-sufficient in some way.  The Harbinger, for example, gains health recovery on his attacks when his target has a specific effect on them.  Other Bloodlines don't have a way to heal, but instead are very good at simply not taking damage.  The ranged damage dealers fit this example, as none of them have a way to heal, but are able to move about pretty well, as well as having control.

Android 2.2, E Readers and Explosions.... What's not to like?

The Nook Color is a marvelous device... not only is it an E Reader, it's running ANDROID, which is the single most amazing OS when it comes to modifying the device to do anything... even if that function may or may not have been in the item's original product description.

This little device has already been rooted and it didn't take long for those same people to throw Android 2.2(FroYo) on there. You'll need to head over to the XDA forums to get all the info on that, I'm not on a computer where I can get that link at the moment. Beyond that, Barnes & Noble has already stated that thie Nook will be getting the 2.2 update in January.

-off subject rant-
Can someone please tell me how an E READER got FroYo before my smart phone?
-end of rant-

The future of gaming is here, are you ready?


Praise the gaming gods!

When one thinks of Bethesda, many things pop into one's mind. Elder Scrolls, Fallout, That weird gear thingy behind their name, and finally, GLITCHES.

Falling through the earth, team members stopping in the middle of nowhere and just standing there(I'm looking at you, Veronica), the whole.... not sure what to call it, legs together, arms straight out Jesus hover thingy they do, and the ever infomous quest glitches(I'd name them all, but I'm afraid I'd be here all day).

Don't mind me, just posting a mouse... or am I?

As technology moves on, we continue to stuff everything we can into one device. Microwaves have clocks on them, watches have calculators on them, cell phones have calculators, gaming consoles, clocks, radios, televisions, internet browsers, text messaging systems, cameras, music players, and uhhh... oh yeah, they have phones on them too.(Hense the name)

Galaxy S phones will get Gingerbread(Eventually)

According to Samsung India, the Galaxy S phone line will be getting the full treatment when it comes to the 2.3(Gingerbread) update to the Android mobile OS.

Chew on this, Jobs!

As of today, Android phones are now being activated over 300,000 times a day. That's right, three-hundred thousand new devices each and every day.

This news comes just four months after they announced the activation of over 200,000 new Android devices every day in August.

sorry, guys...

I got a 360 and a couple games today... I may or may not have let it consume my day.

Either way, no update today.... sorry

On the road to Cataclysm!(Image Heavy)

Oh hey, what's that? A ROAD?!(See what I did there? -insert knee slap here-)

But, seriously, last night I went to my first midnight release for a game that I'm probably on the edge of being obsesses with.

Who am I kidding? If I had a PC, this game would be consuming every fiber of my being. Leveling, questing, running dungeons. Just the memory of being in the dark, with only the dull light of my monitor, for hours on end makes me wish I was there again. That being said, I no longer have a PC... so, if you'd click some adds, I'd appreciate it

Ssiiiiggghhh(Galaxy S update)

I'm one of the many people who bought into the whole Galaxy S craze. Personally, since I was stupid enough to stay with AT&T, I got the captivate, and I have to say I'm happy with the phone overall, but the whole update thing... yeah, it's starting to come back to bite me in the ass.

Android has been rolling out updates like crazy in recent months. I mean, we saw 2.1 and 2.2(Froyo) and now 2.3(Gingerbread) in a matter of months, not to meantion a few shreds of news about Ice Cream. All these updates have had Android users on the edge of their seats, particularly those of us who chose to root and flash our phones with updates from the XDA forums.

Oh hey... a new gamOH GOD WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN

It seems as though I'm missing out on something. Something so immensly popular that it warrants spending real money on in game content; tracks, cars and the such. By now, you probably already know what game I'm talking about, and that game is Gran Turismo.

Personally, I never got into the whole racing game thing, it just never really appealed to me. Yeah, I played some burnout, need for speed and maybe a bit of full auto, but I never really got into it. After hearing some pretty good things about the newest installment(5), I went on a journey through the tubes to see what I could find.

Good news for those of you who enjoy your PC

Everyone in the FPS world knows that mouse+keyboard beats a controller ANY day of the week. The level of control is second to none and the overall feel of it is just better. It seems as though people out there agree enough with that to warrant an entire peripheral dedicated just to this.

That, my friends, is essentially a virtual Xbox 360 controller with USB and PS/2 ports to allow you to have your cake and eat it to. Now you can enjoy any FPS game not available on the PC(Halo Reach anyone?) with your beloved mouse and keyboard. Now, I assume this will be able to be used on any number of games and a range of genres, but as of now they're advertising this item as a tool for the hardcore FPS gamer.

American greed at its finest

It's a very well known fact that Americans are, indeed, greedy. Our sue happy country has created a world where twisting your ankle while competing in a high school sporting event would likely result in a six figure settlement.

This, on the other hand, is a breath of fresh air. Mr. and Mrs. Boring attempted to sue the tech giant Google, over trespassing accusations during Google's sweep of the nation for its Google maps function.

Oh, Super Meatboy, you so crazay

So, the whole 5 of you who read this blog are about to see the end(hopefully) of the SMB V PETA headbutting match. SMB has released a playable tofu character in their lasted patch of SMB on steam.

This whole thing, has done nothing but make PETA look even more retarded and make SMB that much more famous. They put out their little 'game' to mock the animal hating designer of SMB(did I forget to mention he's not made of animal meat?), and he sells a couple hundred more copies of his game. In my book, that's a win win for everybody!

oh, PETA, you so crazay

So, if any of you know anything about PETA, you're very aware that it's nothing more than an organization full of conceded, pretentious douchers who don't really do much but bitch and moan. Really, they claim to want to help the animals, but I haven't seen much of that. Then again, I can't really blame them. They're too busy telling us to eat ice cream made from breast milk, bitching at us for killing flies and protesting the killing of virtual dogs in call of duty.... oh, and replacing meatboy with TOFU.

Something tells me that the massive amounts of money they spend every year could be used doing something more useful than creating a video game full of vegan propaganda. But hey, I don't have any room to talk, i'm a meat eating subhuman.
