Bioshock was a great game. Beautiful setting, neat story, interesting game play. Just what you want. Creater Ken Levine is back with what looks to be an amazing follow-up.
Why aren’t you playing this?
It’s free! Go get it now on Steam. It’s awesome sauce with guns! It’s 4-player co-op!
Here I rant about Ubisoft punishing the people that legally purchase their new game, Assassain’s Creed II and how their shiny new DRM will crash and burn moments after release.
Well, Ubisoft’s master plan has collapsed in under 24-hours, as infamous cracker group Skid-Row has tackled the new DRM and rendered it useless, meaning the only people now suffering with this ridiculous DRM are legitimate owners.
Not bad. So as predicted, pirates get to play the game the way they want and people legally purchasing the game are shackled with redicuous restrictions.
DRM is a broken ideology. It’s stupid way to try and do business.
Time to uninstall yourselves Ubisoft and go flip burgers, you fail at this business.
XKCD is once again a scryer of the future in scary detail.
This past holiday I received as one of my ‘big’ presents a new mouse. It’s the Logitech G9x. This little beastie is one of the top gaming mice available. As you probably know, most of my gaming time goes into PC gaming (the only serious gaming platform in my opinion).
This was a fairly radical departure for me as this mouse has a tail. I’m overly fond of the cordless mice, and my previous choice was Logitech’s G7.
The G9x has proved a good upgrade. The cord is plaited, so it doesn’t tangle up. You can adjust the weight of the mouse by adding or removing tiny… weights. The repsonse time is sick and being able to adjust sensitivity on the fly is always a plus.
Real world (game?) experience speaks for itself though. Too many times I was a millisecond off in performing various actions (headshots, firing off an uber) in TF2 and most of that has gone away with the new mouse. I always suspected there was a slight delay in the wireless mouse activating commands and this new mouse seems to be proving that suspicious correct.
It’s a fairly geeky thing, but it makes my world go round.
