In other words, we got a box at first, and later the developers put stuff in the box. Then we asked for more, so they colored the box. That is where game development is today.
Its been two years since we saw anything on here. Despite my picture on the staff page being drastically outdated, I feel I owe at least one last article. Also, no one reads my personal blog, and this is a better shot than that. So, welcome back geeks, here’s more of my nonsensical ramblings.
I’ve been a gamer for a very, very long time. My Steam account is a five digit, which to those who know what that means, it means that at least once during every game of Counter Strike: Source/Global Offensive I play I get asked by a thirteen-year-old if he can buy my steam account. Of course thirteen-year-old’s don’t have enough money to buy my Steam account. The point is that I’ve been around the PC gaming block once or twice.
During my adventures through all sorts of virtual terrain, our digital earth, alien planets, radioactive swamps, etc; I’ve found that games have gone from a time where we saw one or two patches for a game, to total redesigns of games after final release (I’m positive that Team Fortress 2 is on its 4,000,000th patch, most of which are content updates). Of course, looking on one of my favorite games to play on old thrift store computers, Fallout has only one patch released. Its also totally unplayable on Windows 7 or any modern hardware. On the other side of the spectrum, we see a lot of developers doing open beta’s these days, and releasing tons and tons…

My Curve was a gift from a friend and former boss Chip. Chip bought the phone through T-mobile probably when it first came out as the Curve 8320 was released in 2007 and it was gifted to me in 2009. Chip moved from that crackberry to another quickly, and shortly after moved to AT&T for an iPhone. When my Nokia flip phone, whose model number I am too lazy to find but we can suffice that it was a piece of crap, died after a long string a abuse (being pushed into the pool during JAWS camp, being thrown into my wall and getting stuck, being dropped out the car window on the interstate on accident [you get the idea]) I tried to seek a cheap alternative to pay for a new phone.
As someone who has task management issues I found myself craving the scheduling features that a smartphone packed. Posting around and tweeting asking if people had any old blackberry’s laying around *since i knew no one would give out a free iPhone or Droid* @ichip offered his to me. I fell in love as soon as I unlocked the T-Mobile device to work on my wireless carrier, a process that only took me 18 hours of active hacking. The phone…

Commonly my 8am class will get out early, which leaves me with nothing to do until nine. This down time commonly leads to me meandering my way into the nearby Einstein Bros Bagels and getting a cup of black.
Let me be honest with everyone here. I drink my coffee black, not because I am lazy, but because I find a simple elegance in black coffee that cannot be found when you drowned something in whip cream and caramel syrup. Black coffee is something I feel has lost its appeal over the age of sugar sucking idiots that comprise my generation. There is a confusion amongst humans as to what being a connoisseur of coffee is.
Most people consider coffee to be graded upon the quality it was prepared, the quality of the extra things added to it, and the quality of the milk that they drown it with. Not to discredit this theory, but where is the actual quality of the bean involved in this process. Indeed the bean is forgotten.
Black coffee was a staple of the life of a man up until the mid 80′s. Along with the decline of the diner, the most common place that coffee was propagated to the public, black coffee also declined. The decline of the diner can be traced to the great…
Seriously, two times now? Come on, did you people really think Valve wouldn’t notice you running around with items that should take months to acquire on release day?
Part of me thinks the penalties should be getting more severe, not less.
Ok that’s enough GENERIC INTERNET RAGE for now.
