We all knew when Nvidia announced their plans to buy Ageia that we would see on-board physics processing video cards very soon, but I don't think anyone but Nvidia employees expected it would come this soon. Answering repor...
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...
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...
Not sure if this was already posted or in a blog somewhere, but I just logged into Steam this morning and saw a wonderful early gift from Valve. If you don't have Steam installed, and you have a working PC, you should go here...
Let me start out by saying I was a HUGE fan of FarCry, and to this day hold it as one of my top FPSes. I admired the open environment, and how many ways you could accomplish your objectives. Above all else, the game was beaut...
So I scrolled through the clogs and didn't see a post about this, but I worked all night so no bitching if this is a repost.
I was trolling my usual sites and came across this AMAZING TF2 machinima. It's called Ignus Solus, ...
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...
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...
So I just finished building my new computer, and the first thing I did when it was done, was to start downloading TF2.
The character classes are well balanced, you need all of them to succeed, and the Uber-medic ability rock...
So here's my collage of pictures brought about by my recent purchase.
It took me around 4 hours... here's some of the shots...
All the parts, wow, that's a lot of shit, here we go...

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...
On a new PC...
I finally broke down and did it and ordered myself a brand new PC (in pieces) from NewEgg.com. I recently got a job and all that money was burning a whole in my pocket... well not really, my current PC just is...
About Nyteshade One 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:
MB: ASUS P5N32-E NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI
Proc: Intel Quad Core Q6600
RAM: 4Gbs of Patriot Extreme Performance DDR2 800
VidCard: 2x (SLI'ed) EVGA 320-P2-N815-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB
