      And You'll Never Guess What Happened....

      5 years ago

      Shortly after that last journal entry, the unspeakable happened. I, Alex (aka Warbringer95), one of the least emotional/unfeeling people I've ever known, fell in love. Yeah. It might not sound too surprising for any of you, but if you really know me, like my family or close friends do, you'd be blown away. Lol.

      Well, Well, Well, Guess Who's Back

      5 years ago

      Contrary to popular opinion, I have not died. About 6 months ago, work got busy and internet time got severely limited. For whatever reason RvB fell by the wayside as gaming took over all time I had on the computer. Naturally, I wasn't going to hit the forums being behind as I was, just to dissappear again for days. Anyways, I'm back, and hopefully I'll be diving into LFTO in a week or so. In my next journal I'll chronicle my adventures while I was away. Hope not all of you gave up on me! See you all again in a few days.

      Back...finally

      6 years ago

      So I finally took care of a terrible little bugga' on my newest hard drive. I have to reinstall everything, but it's just nice to be back. The biggest part of SUCK in this is that I have to reinstall ALL my games. This wouldn't be so bad if more were on disc, but they are almost entirely on Steam, and my bandwidth blows hard, so big games like GRID, CoD 4, Empire: Total War, and Dead Space take forever to install. smiley2.gif

      The best part is that I think I finally solved a problem with the audio driver I had before which stopped me from running Bioshock, Far Cry 2, and the Zune software for some weird reason. Anyways, so you can feel my pain of installation armagedon, here's the infamous list (and I don't give a fuck if yours is bigger....6 months ago all but maybe ten of these games weren't owned) :

      The Left 4 Dead Survival Pack

      6 years ago

      The new Survival Mode=HARD. My team and I died on the 2nd tank. That was for a total time of 3.5 minutes, not even enough to get a bronze medal. And the Valve team made it through ten minutes. I don't know how....it's relentless and fast paced. One screw up, and the whole team could be dead; it's so quick, that you wouldn't even know or have time to blaim anyone for the screw up. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

      Flash Drive Gaming

      6 years ago

      I have a Sandisk 8 Gb Cruzer. It has U3 program launcher on it, with Steam on U3. So, does anyone have any idea how to run games from Steam on the flash drive? I'm thinking of putting small games, such as Half-Life, on it. With the way Steam runs games (straight from a folder containing all the games files), I'm thinking it's definitely possible, I just don't know how to do it. Any pointers?

      Hard Drive

      6 years ago

      Well, my computer's new hard drive is installed and all my usual programs are already installed, along with, obviously, the OS. Unfortunately, that was the easy and faster part. Now I have ahead of me the absolutely monumental task of installing/downloading (via Steam or actual discs) ALL of my games, which is going to take forever. You can see what nightmare lies ahead of me by checking out my previous journal. It's times like this where I wish I had gone all the way when shopping for my last flash drive by getting the 16 gb. I have an 8 gb...not quite enough for a lot of games or 1 or 2 big ones. This is especially frustrating because, only being able to hook up one hard drive at once, I would have to load up the flash drive, then turn off comp, swap hard drives, the restart....repeat x 10.

      Unfortunately, that horrid plan isn't ruled out, because almost all those games are on Steam, and my bandwidth is only about 200 kb/s = slow. Anyways...I gotta stop my bitchin' and actually realize how privledged I am to have the awesome collection of games I have....coupled with the fact that about 95% of those games I have gotten in the last 3.5 months.

      Oh and Shmef, if you are listening/reading, is there a way to stop the annoying beep that happens everytime my comp has a system/program inquiry? I think my last hard drive did that a long time ago, but then stopped. smiley4.gif Leave a comment with an answer if you know. TY

      Upgrades

      6 years ago

      My comp is about to go from a pile of shit for gamers to something great; from not being able to play anything from the past 5 years to nearly anything I want. I also updated the games I'm playing. I literally have all but one of those games (Mirror's Edge will soon be owned by me). That doesn't mean I'm currently playing all of those. Some I haven't played in a while, most are from time to time, and the rest I will be playing when I upgrade my comp since it will now be able to handle them.

      I just bought Left 4 Dead. I was going to wait until my comp was upgraded, but its on sale on Steam. 50% off is something you don't pass up, especially when it's an awesome game with recently announced free DLC. Of those games, I play CounterStrike the most. The rest of my games aren't in the network. Here are all of them:

      World in Conflict
      Dawn of War - Original, Winter Assault, Dark Crusade, and Soulstorm
      Half Life: Source
      Half Life - Opposing Force and Blue Shift
      Half Life 2 - Original, Episode 1, and Episode 2
      World of Goo
      Dead Space
      Halo (PC)
      Need For Speed - High Stakes, Hot Pursuit, Porsche Unleashed, Most Wanted, and Carbon
      Battle for Middle Earth
      Star Wars - Republic Commando, Empire at War, Force Commander, Knights of the Old Republic, Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast, and Battlefront
      AudioSurf
      Team Fortress 2
      Left 4 Dead
      Portal
      Deathmatch Classic
      Bioshock
      Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3
      Company of Heroes - Original and Opposing Fronts
      Garry's Mod
      Day of Defeat: Source
      CounterStrike: Source
      Max Payne - Original and The Fall of Max Payne
      X-Com - 5 of Them (too lazy to list them)
      Ghost Recon - Original, Desert Siege, Island Thunder, Advanced Warfighter, Advanced Warfighter 2
      SimCity 4

      Yeah, you're jealous. smiley0.gif

      To update this list with recent additions:

      Call of Duty 4
      Mass Effect
      Mirror's Edge
      Crysis

      Another update:

      Empire Total War
      Rome Total War Gold

      Hey Hey Hey...It's Fat Albert!

      6 years ago

      As a disclaimer: This post has nothing to do with Fat Albert.

      So, got some new pics here. One, very disturbing picture, is my contribution to the Gary Busey pic trend. I did it in like 5 minutes on Photoshop, so cut me some slack. The rest are all anime pics for those who are into that type of stuff and miss my old collections of hot pics that I used to put up. All of them are from the artist, Tony Taka. He is amazing, but beware; if you want to check out his work, it gets hardcore. So I recommend the Shining Wind art he did, which is awesome.

      EDIT: I just added two home-made pics based off of the hilarious Robot Chicken Star Wars Specials. Go Seth Green!

      I've been busy...I should get back on here. It's hard to devote as much time as I once did, so I don't want to disappoint by promising to come back like I have several times in the past.

      I'd like to attempt creating a dedicated server in Synergy, but I'll need your help.

      If we can do this, we might be able to do LFTO Half-Life runs once a week or something like that.

      Yes - he'd be in the main thread, but he doesn't have a sponsorship (though, until he improves his sentence capitalization, I wouldn't give him one). He's a member of the LFTO group, and he's trying to become active.

      More importantly, though, putting my brother into the role of one of the newbs gives me much more cannon fodder for jokes than anyone else. Somehow, it's much easier to poke fun at one's brother than anyone else. I hope to get one or two unique jokes out of the relationship, too. smiley1.gif
