Flash Game/Review: 2112 Coop Chapter 2

Posted by Gloqwi Tuesday, March 24, 2009 1 comments


Major Nelson has revealed that Halo 3's final map pack will release on April 9th and cost 800 Microsoft Points. The story also reminded Gears of War owners that the new map GoW2 map pack is coming out on March 31st for 800 Microsoft Points. To read the full Major Nelson story, click here.

Bungie.net has also posted pretty damn awesome stats, too. Just look at these:


* Halo 3 is still averaging close to 900,000 unique players per day on Xbox LIVE, it routinely pushes over a million on weekends, and it's actually trending upwards.
* The average Halo 3 player session clocks in at roughly one hour per play.
* The Legendary Map Pack, released just about one year ago, still averages over five thousand downloads per day!
* Both the Heroic Map Pack and Cold Storage are holding strong at over 11,000 downloads per day.
* Halo 3 charted fifteenth overall in the NPD sales chart for February 2009, again, nearly twenty months out from our retail launch.
* You're closing in on Ten BILLION Covenant Campaign kills all told (just under 9.8 billion currently).
* Total Halo 3 Players Smashed by the Banhammer, for any reason, ever: 57,854.
* Players rocking the New Hayabusa (aka Recon Armor): 452.


To see bungie.net's whole post, click here. I a little tidbit here, too. They are apparently HONORED that we are still playing as much Halo 3 as we are.

I love you too, Bungie.

Awesome, right?

(Source unknown...)


Ok. I know that my site is barely visited, even by my friends, and most of the hits I get are from image links from Yahoo! and Google images...

but I still wanna try! :D

Two things I have been reading for almost every single millisecond of spare time I get for the past week(because I get really addicted to stories, I guess) are....

Whoville High, a fanfiction based of the world of "Horton Hears a Who".

And the 10k Commotion, a webcomic that hasn't been updated in two and a half years about a fictional DDR competition where owning at DDR is the dream! Oh, and you get $10k if you win.

FanFiction Breakout! 1: I Hears a some Who♥.

Whoville High takes place in Whoville sometime after the "Horton" incident at the local high school, and is narrated by a Who is always looked down upon by classmates and is always being bullied and made fun of and hates Whoville and everything about it, who's life...doesn't suddenly change but takes what seems to look like a turn for the best when she meets JoJo, the smallest who of them all who doesn't seem to want to FREAKING TALK AT ALL!

Yep, it's the Original CharacterxMain Character story of love! If you are particularly sensitive of Mary Sue's, stay away! This fic is for anyone who just really wants a good, long romance story about their favorite characters. It is well written(unlike most crap on FF), but the generic plot may be a little painful for some. A small little twist that makes the story interesting and makes you want to keep reading it though is the fact that JoJo actually does speak to the OC, but the OC never knows! Ok, that may sound a little bland, but it is truly interesting in words I do not have a large enough vocabulary to use. Many will probably love it, while nit-picky, super-serious, readers might find it bland. Seriously, you will still enjoy it! I would have said a must-read, but it's more of a consideration compared to my next review!

Webcomic Luv 1: Are You Ready? Here We Go!

This next story is about one of the longest webcomics with a structured plot I've ever read, probably because it's not much of a comic, more of a online graphic novel, and I don't know much webcomics with structured plots anyway.

the 10K Commotion (or as the cool kids say, Tenkay) focuses on a bunch of teenagers who really want to win a DDR tournament in Hawai'i whose grand prize equals, you guessed it, $10,000. Although they expect for this competition to be a breeze, they meet a team at a local arcade with just as much strife and perseverance as themselves, and once the competition starts, the competition gets real serious.

Although many teams are introduced throughout the graphic novel, the two main teams are Team Cyclone and Team Platinum Mark. Both teams take the competition very seriously and notice that winning it could actually be a challenge. Also throughout the story, you learn about Team Platinum Mark's and their eccentric leader, Dynamite's, shady past, and why it's so important that they win the $10K.

It's one of the most well-written and quality novels I've EVAR seen! And not only that, but the art style is very compelling too, with many awesome touches that make it both unique and extraordinary! The work the author put into this is huge, as this is also one of the longest things I've ever read. I'm lucky I finished it in less than a week, but that's probably because I spent at least 3-4 hours every other day reading it!

The only disappointing part of the story, and this is probably just me because I am never, EVAR, pleased with these, is the ending. Although it does suggest in the end who probably won, it is NOT a complete ending, about a 75% complete ending, at best. [UPDATE: I Re-read the dang ending, now I understand. I would still like an epilogue, but the ending makes much more sense.] It doesn't really say much about what happens after the competition, but there was an epilogue promised to readers. Sadly, this epilogue was promised two and a half years ago, and there is a high chance it's probably not going to ever come. [UPDATE 2: Looking through the site's history of updates, it actually still might have a chance...] It's is still a fantastic read that EVERYONE should like, even readers not so interested by DDR. And on the main page of the website, there is a couple of FAQs at the bottom which should explain enough for you to understand the gist, but a couple jokes are deep inside references that only real DDR players understand. And there are some references you need to have read a couple of mangas or watched some anime to understand, but EVERYONE will be able to understand the main plot of the book, you don't need to know much about DDR anyway.

I really wish I could express how much I loved reading these stories, but that would be un-professional.....

Oh, who am I kidding.
I LOVED THEM AND THEY ARE TOTTALLY WORTH 5-10 HOURS OF UNCONTROLLABLE ADDICTIVE READING!!! AWESOME STORIES!!! IF YOU DON'T READ TENKAY YOU HAVEN'T LIVED!


Well, that's my opinion.

Halo 3: Nintendo Style!

Featuring Pokemon and Mario cultural references.


As most of you are well aware, Gears of War 2 has a pretty crappy ranking system: Impossible to explain, impossible to progress.

Epic Games' answer? A title update! Hitting XBL on March 24th, this update will give players a more Call of Duty-esque system for leveling up; the more points you gain, the more experience points you get, the more you progress through your level(as seen at the top screenshot). Even better? You automatically gain 250 EXP just by downloading the update.

Even better than this? The week after the update (March 31st), Epic will be releasing a new map pack containing 4 new maps, Grindyard, Under Hill and, Courtyard, and a original Gears of War map Fuel Depot! A price has not been confirmed yet, but, if I may include my own opinion, I think this map pack has come at the right time as I have almost completely lost interest in playing this game back in January. Hopefully the EXP system will get me back into it, and I LOOOVED Fuel Depot back in the day, some of the best overnights of my life.

I saw, many moons ago, this video on some other site. A hilarious prank on a live talk radio show, a man impersonates Gordon Freeman (from Half Life) and talks about a man apparently stalking him(as he calls, the G-Man). He also mentions a friend from security (Barney) and his administrator (Breen). He also talks about "portal technology". Only people that have played Half Life (or maybe possibly even Portal) will get this. A revisit to my Favorites list again! Listen to it, raise your spirits for an hour.

About 2 years ago(and probably older than that), but still some amazing stuff!


First, I'd like to say YAY! I finally found news that isn't linked to a Joystiq or BBPS website! Woohoo!

Stumblin' through the interweb I find a picture of a Xbox 360 built into a car! I continued to scroll down and I found many more awesome mods(some old, some new). If you wanna see the whole list click here!

Just imagine, your stuck in some terrible traffic and your held up for like 2 hours because of an accident. Ahhh... good times, good times....

CoD: Modern Warfare 2 coming out end of this year!

Warhawk players, MyHawk stats have arrived.

Posted by Gloqwi Wednesday, March 4, 2009 2 comments


MyHawk, Warhawk fansite, has underwent a major update and now hosts players official game stats online, featuring:

"clan matches & tournaments, daily leaderboards, new graphs, per-weapon stats, stats on individual games, [and] game calendar."


Although it would seem that Incognito themselves allowed MyHawk alone to receive such information, it is not true. Dylan Jobe, the game's director, has revealed that the information comes through a basic XML feed which streams Warhawk data. So, if you want to host Warhawk data on your community website, just go to these forums and send them your information.

Thanks, Joystiq [Playstation] for pic and story!



Presented on the video above is the process of recording and uploading a clip from H.A.W.X. onto YouTube! The process looks super-simple; record, log-in to YouTube through H.A.W.X., then upload! although the uploading looks like it was sped-up(I'm just suspecting. Ever since using the video uploading feature on Spore, I was kind of iffy). Good news for the PS3, bad news for the 360, as this feature is only on the PS3.

H.A.W.X. is already available on the 360 and PS3, and will be available on the PC March 10th!


Here are 3 deals on eBay that you should check out!

[WARNING, ALL OF THESE ARE AUCTIONS! YOU MUST BID THE HIGHEST TO GET IT!


worldsbestdeals is giving it up for about $170 with $15 worth shipping, but has had a pretty perfect history.
AUCTION ENDING IN 5 HOURS.

bluegrassdigital is giving it up for $130 with FREE SHIPPING. AUCTION ENDS IN 5 HOURS.

blue_jimmie_racing is giving one for $150 with FREE SHIPPING. AUCTION ENDS IN TWO AND A HALF HOURS!

These are current deals that won't last long and might get a higher price soon! Win those auctions!

UPDATE: Third auction has ended. First auction's price went WAY up, but second auction is actually still about $130's.

UPDATE 2: I see why the second one is still cheap. Second auction's PS3 is broken, but apparently the warranty seal has been untouched, so you could send the console back in for a fully functional one(sadly, I don't know how returns work, so do a little research before hand. I'm suspecting that they might want the receipt, so you better make sure this guy gives it to you.

My personal faves:

1. This level.
2. Escape from Alcatraz
3. Starfox Corneria music level.


P.S. Don't expect too much. I got lucky to even get on the computer.

Small hiatus.
