So, my SexBox Three-Shitsty is bricked. Surprise surprise. It's down to the E74 error which is apparently related to the console overheating. This in turn is down to the thing lacking a heat sink, simply containing a low power fan and poor ventilation. Well done Microsoft.

I've learned that since this started popping up more regularly MS have extended the warranty from 1 year to 3 years. That's really great considering after my 1 year was up I slung the box and documents required to send the damn thing to get fixed.

Fortunately though, there are plenty of fixes online and I have tried a few of them to no avail. However, I think I've got the best possible solution right here.

Check it out. :)

Chalk up another shoddy product Microsoft. Not surprising that I don't know a single person who has paid for one of your operating systems. :|

So, I have decided expand my modding horizons. I've played around with GTA4 which is temperamental at best. Also Fallout 3, which is less so.

This is the first step on what will hopefully lead to additional quests and locations. A replacement for Jericho, one of the evil companions who you can employ to follow you around.

Incidentally, if anybody wants a copy of me to follow them around the wasteland, I'll send you the file. It's a whole 1KB. :D

So, since I started working as a web designer, I have discovered that as soon as you start doing something 5 days a week, to strict deadlines, it can quickly become very grating.

In light of this fact, I have been trying to focus a lot more on creative writing. It is something I have always enjoyed doing, got me high grades during my GCSEs, and some of you have read and enjoyed some of my fan fiction work which I have posted on the forums. I am currently making notes and brainstorming ideas for what will hopefully be my first novel.

I'll post more info about this as it develops. :)

I have a friend who is half South-African and half German. His German father, Detlef, is a chef. His grasp of the English language is pretty good, however with most foreign people, he gets confused with regards to homonyms. The pub where he works recently changed their menu and one of the new meals was "Battered Haddock." The first day using the new menu, the landlord was getting ready to open the doors when he heard an incredible racket emanating from the kitchen. He rushed in to see what was going on, only to see Detlef beating the shit out of a cold dead fish with a large rolling pin.

Confession Time

I enjoy watching medical examinations on YouTube. I find it soothing. Am I strange? :|

Hey Guys!

So as some of you may know, Rimrook recently got his hands on a copy of Left 4 Dead 2. How did he do this? Well, he purchased it on Steam. Whoo!

However the money required to make such a purchase was provided by the lovely Archie of Scotch and Coffee.

Check out this video to for our recent competition results and see Rimrook's winning entry.

If you are interested in getting your hands on some steam games or even goods from Amazon.com, check out our latest competition here.

It's so simple you can do it in MSPaint! ;)

So... last night I did something I haven't done in a long time. I opened up a particular CSS map which happens to be a MOTM winner from a few months back, played for about 10 minutes, before opening up a blank document and started to sum up all the good points and bad points in a semi ammusing manner.

Basically, I reviewed it. I plan to read it out into a microphone soon too.

Time to get excited?

My rule of thumb. The more promotion and hype that goes into a game, the worse the actual product is.

Example:

Half-Life 2 and episodes: Very little advertising, more money spent on development and upgrades. Overall mature and respectable community of players and modders.

Halo series: Glorified console shooter that was on the PC once. Too much money and time spent on hyping the product and putting up advertising campaigns. Very basic shooter complete with "console spacky-hand retard assistance module" (see: auto aim) and "pussy faggot stop-that-it-hurts protection circuit" (see: Health regeneration) Community consists of 6 - 14 year old's who swear all the time but just quiet enough so that mommy can't hear them.

Games don't need all this marketing for the love of God! They are video games! You know what used to influence my PS1 purchases? Demos! What the fuck happened to demos!?

That is all.
