The first thing in gaming I've been excited about since Crazy Frog Racer 2

Well, that one didn't turn out so good, but I 've got *very* high hopes for this. Sure it's ugly as sin, has been considered vaporware since the beginning of development over two years ago, and has little to no hype outside the hardcore pocket-gaming enthusiast, but I'm like a goddam kid two weeks before christmas thinking about this little bad boy. Behold, the open pandora. I have a pre-order for the first batch, which they SWEAR will be shipping in October. I'm not holding my breath, but it seems like the project is finally on track.



Specs

* ARM® Cortex™-A8 600Mhz+ CPU running Linux
* 430-MHz TMS320C64x+™ DSP Core
* PowerVR SGX OpenGL 2.0 ES compliant 3D hardware
* 800x480 4.3" 16.7 million colours pressure-sensitive capacative touchscreen LCD
* Wifi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth & High Speed USB 2.0 Host
* Dual SDHC card slots & SVideo TV output
* Dual Analogue and Digital gaming controls
* 43 button QWERTY and numeric keypad
* Around 10+ Hours battery life

So what does it do? a better question is what doesn't it do. Basically a netbook PC designed with the emulating gamer / hacker in mind, it's like a GP2X on steroids. With more RAM and a faster processor than the PSP, it can emulate anything from the PS1 and below, and there are rumors of a PSP game emulator in the works, with N64 support confirmed. It runs full DOSBOX for SCUMM games etc, and with a touchscreen, qwerty keyboard and finally a screen big enough to see that tiny text, makes for an amazing handheld with my intended use as a mobile Lucasarts adventure game center. oh yeah, it also runs networked Quake 3 Arena at 60FPS

On top of that, expect to see the full gamut of user-developed apps like synth trackers, drawing pads, animation (It can run Blender!), full firefox 3 support for web browsing, flash games, original apps, productivity suites, etc. It's a little pricey, but not when you consider it it's also a PMP with a bigass screen (bigger and brighter than psp) and support for all major video formats, with up to 128 GB in storage for music and videos. That's a better deal than an ipod touch, and it's way less, with more features. I will be posting a full report the instant I get my sweaty, greasy hands on it. Right after I come all over the screen from joy

MY VOICE IS LIKE UNNATURALLY SHRILL AND EXCITED!!!" I got a PERSONAL call from the fucking man, Dan Akroyd. I listened to the whole thing, him telling me to pick up my game, and then I invited him out for beers and then we totally got wasted and fucked some ghosts. fucked up some ghosts. or maybe they were trannies. and maybe it was actually my friend Julio but I CAN GODDAM PRETEND JULIO IS DAN AKROYD AND THOSE TRANNIES WERE WIMMIN JUST GIVE ME THIS ONE THING I DONT ASK FOR MUCH

Wolverine Origins is like having sex with a bacon.



MY REVIEW BY BAMAMUTZERPO

WOLVERINE ORIGINS MAKE PEE.

I HAD FUN TO CHOP BAD GUY!

i TOUCHED A BOOB LAST NIGHT.

THEN I PLAYEDED WOLVERING ORGYNINGS. IT WAS MORE FUN THAN THE BOOB SQUISHY. MR WOLVERING IS A HERO! I WANT TO RIDE ON HIS BACK AND SEE ALL THE BLOODS. THERE ARE MANY BLOODS IN WOOVERING ORIGNINGS. ITS LIKE NIGNA GADEN 2 ONLY ITS A GOOD GAME.

MY REVIEW END.

Honestly, I'm sorry about this. But sometimes things have to be done for the sake of themselves, and you sacrifice yourself for the common good.

i m so drunk



And you know how alcohol is produced? Through fermentation, a by-product of the citric acid cycle — also known as the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA cycle); the Krebs cycle; or, more rarely, the Szent-Györgyi-Krebs cycle[1][2]) — is a series of enzyme-catalysed chemical reactions of central importance in all living cells that use oxygen as part of cellular respiration. In eukaryotes, the citric acid cycle occurs in the matrix of the mitochondrion. The components and reactions of the citric acid cycle were established by seminal work from both Albert Szent-Györgyi and Hans Krebs.

In aerobic organisms, the citric acid cycle is part of a metabolic pathway involved in the chemical conversion of carbohydrates, fats and proteins into carbon dioxide and water to generate a form of usable energy. Other relevant reactions in the pathway include those in glycolysis and pyruvate oxidation before the citric acid cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation after it. In addition, it provides precursors for many compounds including some amino acids and is therefore functional even in cells performing fermentation.   read

You know what? GTA4 IS A TERRIBLE GAME

This may not be news to everyone, but I actually though I enjoyed GTA the first time around. Now I realize why I got bored. I went back to play it for a day or two recently, and:

★The Controls are a goddam nightmare.
★I CAN INDENT THINGS
★auto-aim is horrific, targeting enemies and civilians in a room full of npcs, cannot toggle between autoaim and manual aim
★Nico might as well be on ether for his speed and turn response
★"Cover" mechanic is a joke. you cannot come out of "cover" to aim, only to simultaneously aim and shoot, which 90% of the time results in nico shooting like he's legally blind.
★The AI IS DUMBER THAN THAT GIRL I FUCKED WITH A SACK OF DOORKNOBS AND GAVE BIRTH TO A HA:F HUMAN HALF DOORKNOB. That's what it's dumber than. not her. the doorknob baby.
★The cellphone and email mechanics are FUCKING DUMB. I deal with SHIT phone calls and SHIT emails IN MY REAL LIFE. I DO NOT PLAY VIDEOGAMES TO RESPOND TO MOTHER-FUCKING EMAILS. I play them to SHOOT people, WHICH IS NOT FUN OR SATISFYING IN THIS GAME.
★the save system fucking sucks, as usual, and it takes fifteen minutes to get back to a mission where you died because you got stuck on a piece of geometry. The "cab" mechanic, while "cute" "in theory," is actually a "huge pain in the ass"
