      Whatever A SpidArd Can

      5 months ago

      Recently, I have been playing Spider-Man Unlimited for iOS. I must say I was never a fan of the auto runner genre until this particular game came along. I think it mostly has to do with with the fact it's Spider-Verse related.

      img_0518.png

      Even as an 'adult', Spider-Man continues to be one of my favorite Marvel characters (next to Wolverine, Deadpool, Venom, and Tony Stark). Especially after the announcement that Sony is letting Marvel use him for the MCU. Excite! There was also another rumor flying around that Nerdist News reported on about the possibility of Miles Morales from the Ultimate Universe will be Spider-Man just in time for Captain America: Civil War. Also excite!

      I haven't quite got a grasp on what's going in this Spider-Verse run of ole web head so I grabbed the prelude trade when I saw it at Big Bang Comics over in Sewickley. Trades are the best especially if all these stories are crossing different Spider-Man comics.

      It seems a family who have been called The Inheritors are after the very souls/life force of all these different variations of Spider-Man. I think one of my favorite that was covered was the Assassin Spider who was trained by Logan/Wolverine. That was an interesting scenario when Karn showed up to eat his face until the Superior Spider-Man (Doc Oct) was like, "We gotta bounce, son cakes.", but in more of an Otto Octavius tone.

      Speaking of Doc Oct, he's been time traveling to and from the 2099 dimension to gather up all these different Spidey's to rid of or kill the Inheritors.

      It's an interesting read if you're a fan of the Spidey. I can't wait for the Spider-Verse trade to release once this run is over so I can find out what the hell went down.

      The iOS game does have The Inheritors in it but it seems more focused on different versions of the Sinister Six breaking through different dimensions to tear up the place.

      There are daily challenges to get more ISO-8, which is used to either tag in another Spidey if you botch a run, used to bring different Spidey's through the portal, or buy an extra slot to unlock more Spidey's.

      During events you have a chance to get a super charge spider person which can add to your score multiplier. Right now I have a score multiplier of 70.5 with the Ally from the East event going on right now.. You don't only try to complete the task set but also try to get a high score to get the rank prize at the end of the event. The rank prize is a bit shady though. I imagine some of the higher scoring people have level 100 Spider folk which alone would be a high multiplier but if they happen to have the ones who get super charged during the event then wow... stupid high multiplier.

      It can be a pain to rank up your Spiders since you have to have the exact same one to use to rank up. You have a slim chance of getting new or existing ones through Standard Portals but it is rare so save up your ISO-8 to bring in some from time to time if you can!

      img_0500.png

      Guess I'll get back to playing some more. Can't really say enough great things about this game. It may have a bug here and there that may or may not mess up your run, but you get use to it. Go play!

      Until next time...

      Squirrel Hill Derby

      5 months ago

      Early last Friday morning a co-worker and I were on our way to Monroeville to take care of a few things IT related near and around the Forbes hospital.

      The trip went rather well until about a quarter of the way into the Squirrel Hill Tunnel. The little red car in front of me slammed on it's brakes and started to slide. In turn I had attempted to slow down but my brakes locked up and I began to slide too. I was able to cut the wheel I wound up hitting the little red car in a weird side swipe motion.

      The damaged caused to the vehicle I was in pretty much rendered it inoperable. My co-worker and I suffered no injuries thankfully. The car on the other hand had it's alignment severely screwed up. What baffled me most is that every one just drove by us without stopping to check if we were okay or not. The little red car was able to drive on. I assumed that person went on to wait outside on the east end of the tunnel, but upon finally getting out there I found out the son a of bitch fled the scene.

      I pulled the car to the right side of the road while I waited for Troop to get over to me to take my statement since I wanted to file it. I was seen to close to 45min later due to three other incidents they were tending to. The Trooper took my statement and gave me the incident number and I went in back to the car to see about getting it towed.

      The tie was finally set up so my co-worker and I sat around and shot the bull on and off for two of the four hours until the tow truck got there.

      Four hours you say? Yes, I did. From the time we got out of the Squirrel Hill Tunnel until I left there was a steady influx of traffic, to no traffic, to cars getting pulled out or driven out with smashed up front ends or cars that looked like they fused together from being rear ended. During this time Action 4 News came out as well to film some of the carnage that was popping out of the tunnel every so often. They asked to talk to me on camera but I refused despite how handsome I am. I don't think they are ready to hear my accent. lol Squirrel Hill Tunnel Crashes (Action 4 News)

      All seemingly due to the fact that the water run off that was supposedly fixed from when the tunnel was under construction for like a year. Guess what? It isn't fixed.

      So I'll be broke for a little while. Good game Squirrel Hill tunnel and shitty winter weather. You win this round...

      FU Day

      2 years ago

      So due to being busy the last 6 months I haven't really logged into my account. I had a few personal comments telling me congrats on being a Featured User 2 months ago and 4 months ago. I became confused. I thought surely I wouldn't become a featured user twice within a four month period. If so that means I have been a featured user a total of 4 times over the years. If I recall I was featured twice in one year the first two time. Anyway... it's a tad bit late, but thanks. Four times the thanks really.

      Must be more active. >.> I say that a lot, but then put it by the way-side. Worst member of the community evar. XD

      Useful DayZ Links

      I'm sure their are a lot of us that use Steam and Six Launcher that wish to play with friends and meet up on which ever server but are unable to use the Filter and have it come up when someone gives you and random 'US ####" listing. Well the other night when Gamespy did maintenance and I couldn't find zero servers I discovered something using the Googles.

      ArmA2 Game Stats - Helps find IP's for Servers
      Now you can connect with your friends easier.

      Yesterday while trying to grab the latest beta patch after the new DayZ ver was dropped the Official Arma2 Beta site was just down... Unable to connect. I suppose it was getting slammed. More the Googles and I stumbled upon this:

      Arma2 Beta Patch Mirror site - For when the offical site is down (has better download speed than official)

      I'm going out on a limb and guessing we all know of these links as well.

      DayZDB
      DayZDB Map
      DayZ Bean Wars Maps

      If anyone has other useful links feel free to share them.

      Recorded some DayZ game play earlier today using xsplit (but local recording) on US126. Not terribly eventful. Not sure why audio got a bit choppy at the end. Enjoy. Post your own if you got it.

      10 Months Ago

      So apparently it's been ten months since I've made a post saying I'd be more involved in the community again. Suppose that makes me a big liar, liar, fibber, fibber. So yeah. I resolve to be more active in the Rooster Teeth community in this following year. Honest Injun.

      Injun is a strange word. I'm sure some believe it would be spelled "Engine". Engine whisperer. Never have to trust your shady mechanic ever again.

      Also, I came across Bombay Dub Ochestra listening to XM Chill on SiriusXM the other day. Check'em out.

      Doubly also, new posterous post here.

      Triply also, my fingers are numb. I can no longer feel them as I type. They're like little baby penguin dicks. Brrrrrr.
