This is my current pc, no its not pretty, no it doesn't
run anything past directx7, but its all I got. :D
It died on me a year after I bought it, so I installed a
newer (though be it lower end) motherboard, and its
still kicking. If I do win, I'll probably still keep it since
it was my first motherboard install. But I'd probably
never need to use it if I won. lol

With no mention of the site at all.
As part of their promotion for the movie
"The Seeker" they've released six t-shirts
with different designs representing the six
elements. For iron they've decided to use
this:




You can see the shirt aswell as order it from HERE.
They also have other sizes listed on this page.








So I was bored and I decided to cruise ebay,
yes, I have a very boring hobby. Anyhow, I saw
THIS.
Now my guess is the last bidder accidentally entered
an extra 0 on his/her bid, or the bidder is doing it
as a joke seeing as how they have a 0 for feedback.
But I think the first scenario would be much much funnier.

Well as some of you who read my last blog post I'm not to impressed or enthusiastic about Halo 3.
However I do know some of you are so I figure I'd post up this video review I came across.
In it he reviews the campaign mode, forge mode, and theater mode just a bit.
Keep an eye out for part 2 which he claims will have a multi-player review.
And don't worry this contains no spoilers.

I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I've been questioning the importance of this game.
I know I'll have a slew of M$ fan boys jumping in front of this carbine shot, but whats so
big about this game?
I understand the Halo following, trust me, I was one of those who purchased Halo 2 and played it all the way until my 360 blew up... Really it started smoking and died, thank you Microsoft. :D
That being said, I've played my share of Halo, BUT I don't really see what the big leap is in Halo 3. My problem with the newest installment is the fact that, I'm not seeing anything incredibly new. I know graphics got a fast spit shine, the storyline continues/concludes(which I could care less for), and they've added the whole record and watch your games (which outside of MLGers, I don't see being used all that much). I know Halo has always been Microsoft's child of sorts and its going to get as much publicity as they can muster, but is it worth it?
I personally believe this may be a mediocre game that will only sell to the hardcore fan boys of Microsoft and the Halo franchise along with those who will buy into the hype.
But thats all besides the point, what do you think?











The good people over at Nvidia have recently released a few snippets of what their new GeForce cards will be bringing us.
One of the videos is a real time rendering of actor Doug Jones,who has been in more movies then your probably aware of, most memorable, the hand double in the movie Idle Hands.

The "Human Head" demo as its being called has some pretty impressive numbers behind it. The real time video is being processed at more than 1.2 billion pixels every second. You may ask yourself, "So what does that mean to me?"

well first it means, Damn that looks good. Second it means that if you
have the hardware support and the cash, say $829.99, which is the starting price according to Nvidia's SLI Marketplace, You too can possibly play the somewhat next gen of PC games in Direct X Level 10. But, if your like me you'll still have to be content playing counter-strike source in dx8, with the lowest settings just to squeeze out more FPS on your crappy 256 integrated video cards.. well maybe if your Just me.
