FFF Recap: An Ode to the Good ol' Days of Gearheads.
Sat Sep 05, 2009 at 02:25:35 PM EST
Last night I felt like I was shot back to the past. Back when Gearheads were gaming Gears 1 all friday(saturday for Suns&kids) night up until the wee-hours of the next morning still laughing and cursing out the game for it's shenanigans. Last night was no different than those days long ago with 3 full rooms of Gears going on, all having a blast.
The t-shirts are done! Almost...

Alright ladies and gents got some news for you guys. A few of you know that I'm all about my Cosmic Cloud project and to make it even more official I've been wanting to make an official logo that wouldn't be illegal. And with the aid of the very same person who will forever be with me through my tattoo a.k.a. Boxin and his supah-sick artistic abilities I finally have an official logo and a possible shirt design. Let me know what you guys think. Link below.
I asked for help and that's exactly what I got.

Hey guys and gals! About 2 weeks ago I think it was, I asked for help from you guys with a tattoo idea. Now I know it was mainly me that was coming up with ideas, but it helped getting a few of your guys' opinions. Well tonight I got that very tattoo done and I have a picture for those that want to see it. Let me know what you guys think.

Now, I've noticed (and I'm sure others have too) that it's been like Lago lately (High Plains Drifter referrence) and I thought I'd spark up a quick discussion. Anyways I need your guys' help on a decision. Details below.

Now, I'm just gonna start this saying this Community game is the fucking shit. And I mean the sweet-ass, awesome fucking shit. It's an XNA game, but it's not really a game, it's a loop-based sequencer. If anyone's used GarageBand, or any other music sequencing software, this is basically what it is for the 360. It has over 500 loops to use to make your own music. Now being such a huge fan of techno and experimental I thought I'd give it a try. And I did. And now I have 2 pretty awesome songs which you can check out on the link below. The trial only lets you mess around for 7mins, but I bought it almost instantly and it was well worth the 800 points I had to put down to buy it. And BIG thanks to rEDChief for telling me about this. Otherwise, I'd have no idea about it.

What we could've gotten with the L4D Box Art.
Thu Apr 09, 2009 at 06:12:03 PM EST
Nothing too mindblowing, or news breaking, but rather just a little tidbit of information I thought the big group (including myself) of us here that are in love with L4D. It's just a short story written by Jeremy Bennett, one of Valve's artists, explaining why Valve chose the Box Art they did, and what designs were scrapped, and even an explanation as to why. Jeremy starts with something that's true and interesting - he states that companies never really tell you why they choose a design for their game's cover, or what came before it. So, I thought it was pretty interesting to see what Valve went through to give us the gory, pun-filled cover we see today. Link to the story below.

Well, here we are - Feb.3 which means that it's our beloved Boxin & Abe's Birthday today. Happy Birthday guys. Boxin, pound those brewski's for me, and Abe, go wild for one, man. Seriously.
And on another note, I'm leaving for Puerto Rico tomorrow at 4am EST so I'll be missing you all, and make sure to have some stories for me because I'm sure I'll have plenty for you.

OK, here's the dealio: Robbins and I started playing Left4Dead at around 12:30am on the No Mercy Campaign on Expert. Now, our plan was to try and beat a Campaign on Expert for the first time in one sitting. At around 2am Circuits joined in. So here we are, 6:09 in the morning stuck on the final Chapter. We just decided to call it quits, but just for now. We want to get another game going some other time on the final chapter to try and beat it - and I wanted to know who else would be up for it. I'm sure Circuits would be fine to continue with it, but we're gonna need at least one other person. We got plans and everything, we just need 4 human players to try and make it successful. So post and let us know when and if you would be up to helping us beat it.
Oh, yea. There's an Assault this weekend.
Tue Nov 04, 2008 at 12:48:36 AM EST
Over at Xbox360Fanboy.com there's a story posted about the "Assault" coming this weekend alongside the release of Gears2 this Friday. Right now, you can visit the Gamerpics&Themes tab to download the Registration Gamerpicture to enter the Play & Win sweepstakes for Gears2 this weekend. And coming on Friday, November 7th, there's TONS of FREE content that is up for grabs. Some of the booty includes: A welcoming message from the main man, the Cliff-meister (I'm assuming it's similar to the one released with Gears1), training videos, an exclusive NXE-optimized Last Day theme, and finally an exclusive launch week Gamerpic. Oh, and also there's a Wingman Leaderboard Tourney where you have a chance to win a Limited Edition Gears2 Xbox360 as well as a Game With Devs session with some of the good guys from EPIC.
Mirror's Edge Demo Tomorrow.
Thu Oct 30, 2008 at 04:34:04 PM EST
Hey guys, this is HUGE news... Well, for me at least. But tomorrow Mirror's Edge, the stunningly beautiful Parkour game is having a Demo of the game's Prequel, a few Tutorials, and some of the Single Player included. And a special treat for those that pre-ordered the game. If you have pre-ordered the game you can use a special code to unlock a Time Trial mode for the Demo. Now, I just can't wait to see how actually realistic that EA has made parkouring in the game. And if there's no King Kong in Mirror's Edge, I'm going to be HIGHLY disappointed.
Do NOT go to the Official Forums.

Hey guys, I know some of you are thinking this doesn't deserve a Diary, but I wanted to make sure you guys know about this. I haven't been on the official Gears forums in awhile, so I thought, "Hell, I'll check up and see what's on there." since there's been some nice new details posted over there. Well, when I arrive I click on Gears of War 2, and what sits before my eyes are Thread after Thread of spoilers. I tried just skipping over them, but these spoiler threads are everywhere. They even put some in the freaking title of the thread to. So I'm here just trying to warn you guys who don't want to spoil anything (haven't and WILL NOT watch any videos posted after the Enemy VidDoc) to go to the official forums. For you own safety...
rEDChief Needs Our Help...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!!!!!!! I CAN POST DIARIES!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyways...
Hey guys, I was talking to rEDChief yesterday and he was saying how he wanted to be up to date with all we know about Gears 2 so far (I know, what a lazy-ass, right?) Anyways, since he couldn't post diaries and has been busy as of late, he wanted me to post one for him and whenever he gets the time, he'll check so he's not completely out of the loopdie-doop.
