If you’ve heard of the Desert Combat mod for Battlefield 1942, but didn’t think it was for you, check this vid out. I play the game pretty regularly and my jaw was still dropped at some of the stuff seen in this vid. Makes me want to max out my system to see the game in it’s full glory.
‘Wow’ pretty well sums it up.
Nothing like digging around in the garage and finding what appears to be a “pickled dragon”. Thought to be created as a hoax around the end of the 19th century, the dragon is thought to be made of a type of rubber, or maybe even wax. The detail on the dragon is pretty amazing though.
Pixar just continues to blow my mind. Check out the sneak peak for their new short “Boundin'”.
I’ve added the Quotes of the Day feed to my daily RSS listing. I’ll try to toss the really good ones up for your benefit (or so I can giggle.)
Inanimate objects are classified scientifically into three major categories – those that don’t work, those that break down and those that get lost.

Boy. That’s one tough bird. Winston Churchill’s parrot is still kicking at 104. I know some animals live a long time, but you never really connect them with anyone famous. ABCNews.com even has a pic of the
polly, erm, Charlie.
Very intresting article up on Salon.com dealing with a gamer behind the lines in Iraq.
While missiles crashed around him, Zeyad struggled to keep Crash Bandicoot alive. Today, he continues to play, even as Baathist holdouts rage on and his frustrated countrymen demand a better future.
It’s intresting to read that he learned of American lifestyle from games like Leisure Suit Larry 🙂 It’s also intresting to hear how the war not only dropped prices on electonics, but with the overthrowing of Saddam, items previously blocked by the government are becoming available.
Shacknews has a nice first look at BFV. From what I’ve read, it appears to be more of the same, but a little bit better.
Just what I was expecting 😀
If you are a fan of BF1942, you’ll be intrested to know what all is coming in the 1.6 patch, due any day now. New maps, bug fixes, Punkbuster support, updated scoreboard, improved server browser, and the promise of improved ‘chat lag’ are all included in what is being called the largest update to the game yet. Hopefully this will fix the majority of the larger bugs, so the DICE crew can focus on Battlefield Vietnam 😉
Well, another one pushed back. Now Novalogic has pushed Joint Operations, a game similar to Battlefield 1942, back until 2nd Quarter. I can’t tell if this or Battlefield Vietnam will make it to shelves first.
I am looking forward to both, with BFV leading by just a touch. I think it’ll continue the great gameplay of BF1942, but I’m also looking forward to the more “current” weapons and vehicles of JO. That and the game just looks great 🙂
Intresting little site I stumbled across today. The site says this ” sociological project is about the study of knowledge among human society and how it can differ and change.” Basically, every once in a while a new topic is posted, such as How to: Tip at resturants or How to: Cook spaghetti. After the new topic appears, you give your two cents on how the task is done. There are no right or wrong answers. You are encouraged to have fun, or if you want, follow the topic.
The typical Internet user ? far from being a geek ? shuns television and actively socialises with friends, a study on surfing habits says.
I wouldn’t say that I shun TV, but I like the fact that someone has figured out that internet users socialize with friends. I think I have more “current” friends that are only then I do in real life. I haven’t met my neighbors in the house we’ve been in for close to 2 years, but I have friends in the UK, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada, and all over the US.
So, let me get this straight. You’ve been getting free cable for 4 years, and now you are going to sue? Ok. And why are you going to sue? Ah. Gotcha. Because you are addicted. Got ya. Makes’s perfect sense…
Wait until the end of the super long end credits!
If you’re patient enough, you’ll a get preview of the next episode…
Though… it’s just the same anyway! :>>
After hearing how unhappy he was with his latest movies, I’m almost glad to hear that Jackie Chan is considering pulling out of US movies. Dark Horizons is reporting that Chan is going back to HK cinema, and with the movies he’s been given as of late, I can’t blame him. How exactly can you ruin a movie with Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jackie Chan? Only in America…
