Little thought of the day ūüôā Calvin and Hobbes rules. Calvin has an awesome wisdom.

Thought i would finally repost something.  Gamers with jobs is a fantastic website with a great podcast.  I recently had been looking at my own desktop machine and thinking about upgrading and thinking about possibly not building a desktop from scratch.  Then i started thinking about not getting a desktop at all.

Firefall Free MMO FPS

Posted: August 30, 2011 in Shiny, Video Games

Just saw a trailer Firefall by Red5 Studios and signed up for the beta looks like it could be alot of fun

I like the cell shaded graphics and the trailer definitely looks awesome ¬†we’ll see what happens when the beta opens or it becomes available


Update: ¬†ok i just read a press release by Red5 by Mark Kern CEO of Red5 Studios and am very impressed by this plan : ¬†“To explain our launch process further. We already consider ourselves ‚Äúlaunched.‚ÄĚ We will not have a traditional beta, open beta, launch process. We no longer feel this makes sense in a modern, online, service oriented business, especially a free2play game. Instead, we have modeled our launch after G-mail‚Äôs invite system.” ¬†I think this is awesome!!! ¬†I am really hoping this works out. This would be an awesome way to get people invested in the beta process or even ending the traditional beta process completely.

Nice weekend, Sea World and Chillin

Posted: August 29, 2011 in Shiny

Sea world on Saturday. ¬†We used to have sea world passes when we were living in Clairemont and since we moved to Escondido we decided to go with Zoo/ Wild Animal Park passes. Those are fine and i like watching the animals ¬†at both places but I did miss Sea World. So we¬†decided¬†to get passes again. ¬†Now sea world has a conservation society membership which is $56 to start and $7 / month. ¬†So anyways we got to Sea World a bit after they opened and headed right to the new Shamu show and it was Shamu Showy. ¬†The¬†usual¬†talking about one wold one ocean etc then¬†jumping¬†whales. ¬† We sat right in¬†front¬†and my son was a bit nervous about¬†getting¬†wet (he’s 3) but we had a towel so he was able to¬†shield¬†himself from most of the heavy splash and thought it was a great game. ¬†Then off to look around at ¬†some of the other exhibits. ¬†I was a bit bummed that the entire bat ray shallows was closed off they are¬†putting¬†in a new roller coaster next summer called manta. The new turtle reef was nice and brought about a whole string of “you so totally rock dude!” ¬† The Blue Horizons¬†dolphin¬†show was great again i thought Sea World did a great job putting this show together the choreography and stunts and animals make it a really fun show. After that since it was soo hot it was time to cool off and let mom and dad rest so we went to the splash zone and the waterworks was off. ¬†So we went on some rides and got way to dizzy. ¬†by the time those were don the water works were back on and he was about 10 seconds before he was soaked and loving it . Finished the day with a sea lion and otter show which is one of the funniest and occasionally unintentionally¬†spontaneous¬†shows at the park. ¬†Headed home to pass out even down by the water it was pretty hot on Saturday. ¬†Sunday was a nice and chill played some League of Legends and other games. ¬†We also watched Tangled and the Wife and I watched Priest, ¬†but more on those later.

Ok this definitely goes under ooh shiny

All i can really say is DAAAAAAMMMNNN . ¬†This looks like a gaming laptop i would actually buy. ¬†While i have not actually seen one the form factor looks very nice and really slick. ¬†Though at 17″ screen i think it may be a bit big for my tastes in laptops. ¬†The specs look like it has the horsepower to run most current games and the¬†multitouch LCD panel definitely falls under shiny. ¬†the price is a bit out of my range but hey razer if you have a demo you want reviewed let me know:)
