Open Source

Warsow. It’s free and fast as fuck. I just grind out against this bot and talk about how scarred I am from High School. It will be a long time until those four years stop giving me shivers. Maybe I’ll record it, but let’s be honest that sounds like a terrible idea. (I already tried but Fraps was being lame)

Yeah, I suck.

But Warsow is a really great time and I enjoy so much about that game. I’m to scared to play humans, and I probably won’t deal with anything on that front until I finish the semester.

I’ve been listening to Beyonce too, so I think I’m going crazy. Hopefully all will end well.

Sound Cards

Getting a sound card is a pretty massive boost in my gaming experience. Bad Company 2, a game with fantastic audio, now sounds incredibly crisp and accurate. I feel so much more in tune with the game as well. Everything feels so much clearer and closer in a way. Sometimes I load up high graphics settings and war tapes just to be overwhelmed. Laguna Presa is magnificent with the shallow water and chirping birds. 

It’s too bad that war tapes and high graphics make the multiplayer a overwhelming, re-verb induced explosion of my senses. I guess that’s what home cinema and my spotting config are for.

Music is now on a whole new level of awesome as well. I can’t remeber the last time I listen to music with lyrics. Must have been She and Him a few weeks ago. Vocals are for nerds anyway.

The Joy of Building

I’ve been getting into modding recently, mostly on the gun model construction front, and I must say it’s fantastic. I realize so much of my energy as a PC and objective playing elitist is spent trying to convince other people to build and play games right. I enjoy having control over how my guns look, but more than anything I genuinely enjoy making them. It’s not a means to an end at all. I don’t mind if the process will take years because the journey is so great.

When my pistol and sniper rifle are complete I’ll post them for all you loyal fans that exist in my mind.

I’d also like to get a good CRYENGINE3 map going soon. I want to use my own meshes and textures, but I need to have those made first, but that’s getting there too. I think natural objects will be less time consuming than weapons. Rocks are less complicated and also don’t need to be as well made because they aren’t right in front of your face like gun models are. Also anyone who doesn’t run a spotting config in a competitive game is either looking for a great visual experience or is uninformed or casual. Both of which should get the hell out of my squad to free up a good spawn point to capture the charlie. If you had a proper audio config you would of heard that DUDE, WE LOST THE FIRE BASE!

I still can’t tell which base is the fire base. I think it’s the base closest to the enemy un-cap, but it seems like whatever non-middle base we lose is called the fire base. Nice one Marlowe!

 

P.S. My 12 page BC2 guide is almost done. I have everything form Audio settings to kit load-out guides to aid you in madly rushing objectives and dying. 🙂

The Nikon Punch Photo Shoot

Nikon Punch is a really awesome dude. So awesome in fact, that I got a shirt with his face on it. There was a request for pictures, and knowing Sir Punch’s love of photography, I figured I’d have some fun with the shots.

 

 

THE RACE COLLECTION

I don’t actually ride, but I do have my motorcycle license.

Image

Sir Nikon is a seriously cool dude.

Vroom Vroom

 

 

THE ESPORTS COLLECTION

The epic faces of gaming.

Image

We all make that face in Tribes, don’t deny it.

Image

The most serious gamers can be seen rocking this face.

Image

Did he seriously grab the flag THAT fast?

 

Quite possibly the best shirt ever, many thanks to NIKON PUNCH for being awesome.

Best Shot of My Life

I just shot a disc at the enemy flag stand from a the big lower plateau in DRYDOCK and it sailed all the way to the stand and blue-plated him right as he was trying to Capture. Why wan’t I taking screenshots? I’ll never play without recording it somehow, It’s just too fun to share my lucky shots that are so epic!

On another note, playing without egocentric is kinda crazy, but a single compact nitron at my feel will blast me across the map.

Image

Gotta go fast!

Some Epic Winning. Rarely Happens so When it Does I Post it to a Blog Nobody Looks at…

Image

GET

Image

NITRONED!

Image

I know my flag is great but I would like it back thanks.

Image

I know I took my flag back but I don’t like sharing. It’s OK buddy.

Image

But seriously don’t ever TOUCH MY FLAG AGAIN!

That was en enjoyable little chase there. I’m still bad but I’m getting there.

 

Image

Just chillin’ with my good friend, hiding from the snipers.

Image

I’m sorry Mr.Infiltrator but I’ve grown quite fond of your flag and I would like to keep it.

Image

I hope nobody sees me…

 

Image

Oh no they found US! We were having a nice time alone, why did you have to ruin our date?

 

Image

And finally the flag capture, that took forever.

 

 

This was a good game, both teams were pretty coordinated and I ended having some nice moments.
