Realm of the Mad God

Realm of the Mad God

I thought this was worth a share. Seems like a funny little 8bit game that could be a good time killer.

American News TV

Summed up by a very smart and very funny man. He may be a comedian but he is speaking the truth.

What he speaks is absolute truth. The apathy displayed in this country is downright criminal. The stupidity displayed by News Television and it's tabloidy headlines and exploitation of sensational issues and ignorant people needs to stop and it needs to stop now.

Still sorry, still lazy....

Oh my god, I'm still a lazy arse blogger! I have been busy with work and just can't blog when I get home. I need to exercise my mind and write more to get the thoughts flowing. I am going to try and do just that very soon here. I just need to think up some ideas.

Sorry to the few that may read my blog. I have been quite busy with work and life and haven't had the chance to do much whinging on the internets lately. Hopefully I'll get a chance to throw a few quick things up here soon.

DC Universe Online

So, last night I decided to buy and download DC Universe Online. Available on Steam for 50 bucks. It's about 13 gigs to download, with an extra 2 gig patch afterwards. My initial impressions are quite favorable. It plays a lot like your typical action game, very similar to Prototype or God of War. You can lock on to targets or you can do it more like a free-flowing brawler style. Although it's an MMO, it feels more like a single player game due to it also being available for PS3. There isn't a whole lot of chatting going on, just running around and smashing stuff.

A lot of reviewers were saying that the game doesn't play well with a mouse and keyboard, but I haven't had any issues. I have the usb dongle to hook up my wireless xbox controller to my PC and play this, but it is working rather nicely on keyboard and mouse for me.

Here is a quick screenshot of my villian, PyritePunisher. I tried to transpose my old Pyrite Punisher character from City of Heroes over to DCUO. Big thanks to Kevin for coming up with the Pyrite Punisher name, it was perfect.

The level cap is 30 and it seems rather quick to get levels. Or, perhaps, I was having so much fun smashing cops that I didn't notice. Either way, it was very entertaining, and that is the point. I may have to try recreating The Angry Goblin character I had in CoH as well as a new villain that I will name Narcoleptica, that puts people to sleep and messes with their minds.

This game is very enjoyable, although it sucks that PS3 players have their own set of servers aside from the PC players. I would very much like to play with a lot of my favorite podcasters but they are all playing on the PS3 version of the game.
