Tekkit WoesAfter playing around with the Technic Pack for Minecraft in creative mode, I decided to try my hand at legitimately playing the game...
Wow... it's friggin' hard. And not hard in the sense that it's difficult collecting all the various ores I need to smelt and make cool things... I mean it's hard in the sense that all these mo-creatures creatures are a royal pain in the ASS.
It's one thing when you have to dig into a cave and deal with creepers, zombies, spiders, and skeleton archers... it's another entirely to have to deal with all those PLUS wearwolves, ghosts, scorpions, snakes, rats, lions, and a whole bunch of other nasty creatures. It's almost overwhelming how difficult it is to mine without getting mauled to death.
I've died a lot already, and I've only been playing for 20 minutes. Tekkit is awesome, but damn... it's really HARD to do it legit.
Night Raiders - v1.0Hey everyone! I've made a survival minecraft world! It's called Night Raiders! The map was created and designed by me and Darcia, with help from Ashley Staggs.
*Two team PVP survival map! Red vs Blue!
*6 players per team for a total of 12 possible combatants!
*Simple automatic player drop system makes the map easy for admins to setup.
*Two unique worlds built from the ground up!
*Both sides have ores and resources the other side needs!
*Lots of hidden pathways, secrets, and treasures sprinkled throughout both worlds!
*The only 2 doors connecting the worlds open and close depending on the time of day and weather conditions. During the day they're closed, but then at night they open up!
*Sneak into enemy territory and steal the precious resources you need to level up your weapons and armor!
*Defend your land from outsiders!
The map is free to download, but I would like to encourage people to visit the site via the following adf.ly http://adf.ly/DIR5n . I know everyone hates those links,
Tired of the Video Game IndustryWith the PS4 on the way, the gaming industry is alive once again reminding us how dull and boring and... wrong... it is. Here's a quick summary of some of the things I'm sick to death of hearing about when it comes to video games.
Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know

Brace Yourself - More Women in Gaming NewsJustin Bailey Samus Costume in SSBB
So Nintendo released this today: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=316135481893472&id=224173137756374
In case you didn’t go check it out, it’s a screenshot of a costume option for Zero Suit Samus which has her dressed in basically a sports-bra outfit. An obvious nod to the “Justin Bailey” code from the original Metroid (or Zero Suit Mission but honestly who cares?).
I honestly wish I could get mad over this, but I’m frankly just sick and tired of this kinda crap. I already apparently “offended” people with my rants about her ugly ass high-heel-boots several months ago, and I don’t wish to go through with that again. Not to mention there does come a point where complaining about “fanservice” in a game ALL ABOUT FANSERVICE becomes kinda... gauche.
Just for the record though, I am not against this outfit per say. There is nothing wrong with wearing sports
