Can There Ever Be A Winner?!

So, most of you have probably already read Sterling's post on how the PS3 could be uber, as I did just a little while ago. It's a great post, and along with the news of Warner Bros going BR exclusive, and the HD-DVD camp bail...

 


Mr. Destructoid Goes 3D! Take A Look!

So, I recently “got a copy” of Maya Ultimate 2008 and decided to start screwing around with it. My first non-tutorial scene just happens to be the best mascot EVER! I couldn't decided off the bat what I wanted to experiment w...

 





DO NOT Install the New x64 Vista Patch!!!

Heads up to all the PC gamers out there running the Vista 64-bit edition, DO NOT INSTALL "Update for Windows Vista for x64-Based Systems" (KB933928) if your running an Nvidia (maybe others too) graphics card. Within 5 minute...

 


Best TF2 Screen Shot Ever! (and a bonus)

This was so perfectly timed it's not even funny. When you get killed in TF2 it pauses for a bit, and gives you a chance to take a screen shot of your killer... sometimes to fantastic results... Both of these shots happened in...

It's HERE!!!

So, as I blogged about last night, I just blew 2.5 large on a new PC. Well, it's here, and as promised I'm going to be making a "making of" my new PC in pictures. To start the whole thing out, here are some pics of my ju...

 



About Nyteshadeone of us since 2:30 PM on 06.24.2007

Alright, basic intro:

I was born in 1984, which means I grew up just a tad late to be an Atari front runner (still got one and played the shit outta it) but I did get to grow up with Nintendo. I've bought every Nintendo console on release day (Wii included, 32 hours outside of Wal-mart).

I'm a "hardcore gamer" but I detest the term and I won't fit into any damn mold! I LOVE retro games, and I think 90% of the shit on the game market right now isn't worth the time or money I'd have to spend to burn those shitty studios that make these games to the ground.

I hate the fact that the FPS genre has become so flooded it's hard to find anything good and not WWII, and I think the last good FPS was Half-life 2 (HL2+Source+Bioshock WTF PWN ALL).

I've been PC gaming since I was 3

Shit I've bought:

Nintendo - NES, SNES, Gameboy, Gameboy Pocket, Gameboy Color, N64, Game Boy Color, GB Advance (+SP), Virtual Boy (fun ass system imo), Gamecube, GB Micro (was a gift, I prolly wouldn't have bought one), DS, DS Lite, Wii.

Sony - Playstation, Playstation 2 (3 of em so far), PSone. Gonna buy a PS3 only if it's under $300, and a PSP when it's cheaper.

M$ - Winblows 3.1 up to Vista Ultimate (I bit the bullet and got Vista when I built my latest PC), Xbox. Gonna buy a 360 when the revamped 65nm version is down under $300.

The first computer I gamed on:
Name: IBM Personal Computer 5150
Processor: Intel 8088 @ 4.77 MHz (A beast!)
Memory: 64 KiB
Hard Drive: Ehhh... Nope.
Network card: Hehe... nope.
Keyboard: "Compared to the keyboards of other small computers, the IBM PC keyboard is the Rolls-Royce." Real quote from a review back in the day!
Monitor: 8" CGA graphic mode; 320 x 200 resolution.

My Current PC:
