Keihatsu Radio = Chiptunes ftw

The world should join in, it's that goooooooooood.

I lurve me some chiptunes and listen to this station every Sunday whilst doing household things. Ain't found any other station that caters to my breakbeat/dnb/dirtybeats taste with a massive helping of 8bit tunes.

Old news is old? Then hook me up with new stuff :P   read

Technological musings of an over-worked salesman

Sup Dtoiders,


It's been a while, I know! At least 6 months since I last did a clog (yes not this trendy new cblog name). I've been working away at a very large, very well known UK IT retailer advising people on product compatibility and full custom systems. Great fun, I'm like a kid in a sweet shop every day. Any other job, I fail at. Believe!

This job however great, leaves me with very little time to spend gaming. I find myself playing more and more minigames inbetween work, which is great for keeping the old skillz up but awful considering I cannot engross myself in a game and have a life at the same time. Somewhat ironic if you consider my username, which is Tempus and means "Time" in latin. Something I never have enough of!

To add to this, the day I moved in to my new apartment (beginning of feb) my graphics card decided to keel over and die on me, rendering my 24" widescreen useless for any 3D application. Honestly, all I wanted was to get through CoD4 and go through Bioshock once more in those three weeks where I didn't have net access. And as good as it is, having your own place - it means money that would have been spare for, I dunno, a new graphics card let's say, is now spent on what I consider ridiculously overpriced.... bills.

Growing up sucks! Long gone are the days where I would just spend a summer going through a final fantasy game, or going through every level of lemmings just for a giggle. Nowadays it's Mario Minigames on the way to work, Tetris at lunch and possibly a game of Mario Kart with my good lady in the evening. I really miss chasing the crap out of people with a magnum on HL2 DM, watching as their blood spatters across a wall, the sound of a multikill and everyone's favourite, the headshot.

My good friend David Houghton is visiting for the weekend. I'll be sure to try and get some form of dodgy photos, video surveillance and classic quotations from him. That and VS Street Fighter II Turbo on the SNES will definitely have to come out if I stand any chance of even getting a punch in this Friday...

It's great to see Dtoid so busy, I don't comment or clog like I used to but I'm here every day, lurking away at work reading for teh lulz, keep up the good work people :)

Peace   read

Am I going mental or are Valve ripping people off?

Okay so when HL2:Episode Two and Portal were announced, I was under the impression that Portal would come bundled with Episode Two.

CVG: " Portal ships with Half-Life 2: Episode Two at the end of the year. "

Only - when I visit Steam I am then met with some grim facts.

Episode Two is $10 more expensive than Episode One.

Episode Two does not include Portal (from what's advertised on Steam anyway).

Portal is $19.99 on it's own?

So Valve want $50 from me for two games - whereas Orange box users (who didn't already own the game I expect and that's cool, but i have had the game since day one pretty much and should be rewarded as such) get so much more for their money?

I don't think so Valve. I'mma borrow someone's account instead. I refuse to pony up $50 for two games when one of the games was billed as being "with" another. Not to mention that price hike, yikes.

And here I was, excited too.   read

Final Fantasy VII: Voices of the Lifestream - 45 tracks!

OC Remix have gone and given the FF7 soundtrack their 'treatment' - and it's damn fucking good.

Amazing even.I've given it a good once over now and it's a fantastic album with a lot of good efforts. Most of which combine my favourite genre's of music anyway. I've sat here and changed my underwear twice and my jaw is now aching. I love this soundtrack, quite possibly my favourite from any game (bar Duke Nukem3D).

Anyway, download it - enjoy it and like, well, listen to it I guess.

I can has internets? YAY!

Hello fellow Cloggers!

It's a crying shame, almost two weeks without teh net at my new place! Then again, at least there's no bug infestation here and we have running hot water, a vast improvement. It felt as though I had lost an appendage without el web. Either way, I'm back to chew the fat :D

The only games I've played recently are SSX3 and Street Fighter 2 Turbo. Both are games I had lost some skillz on, but gradually building back up :D

ALSO COCKS! (Damn it's good to say that again...not that good though, you sicko's)

I made a banner + random thoughts...

Yay for Amiga crashes and paint!

By the way, who the fuck does Robert Summa think he is? Diss the Dtoiders and then come try to hug us all with blog posts? I don't think so.

Anyone who's ranting at Summa deserves a gold star at the moment and as for the other bit of e-drama going on at the moment, well, that person in question should be Livin' in a box.

Safe.   read

David Houghton is a legend

I. Yes me. I, just spoke with the following man courtesy of our favourite Houghton-San;

Only a quick crazy phone call but still, my mind is blown. I just wish I had been able to go to London for the Pure Pwnage premiere this weekend. Instead, my ticket was offered to the Dtoid Army and no-one took the bait. Ah well... At least I spoke with teh_pwnerer!   read

Congrats Kid, You Got Aids!

So my brother just linked me to this and I'm still wiping the tears of laughter from my face. I can only imagine the kid looked like this;

And I quote;

"<Anonymous> Now, I’m sure many of you have encountered little shits in supermarkets. Little kids running about and knocking things over, being rude, walking all over their parents, you know the kind. But the worst are the biters. Yes, those little cunts that feel it is okay to bite you whenever they feel like it.
<Anonymous> Okay, here’s the best part. A biter got me today when I was grocery stopping. He broke the fucking skin, too. This was when the gears started turning, the moment I saw a tiny sprickle of blood on the little shit’s teeth as he was grinning at me like the little cunt he is. I made my eyes get wide, and started screaming “SHIT! SHIT!.” Now, my good friend, Tom we’ll call him, was there too, and he instantly picked up on it. He started shouting “FUCK! MAYBE HE DIDN’T GET IT! FUCK!.” By now, the kid is scared shitless and starts crying, and instantly, Mizz Mom appears out of nowhere and starts getting pissy at us for yelling at her kid.
<Anonymous> Here’s the kicker, I look her straight in the eye and say, “Mam, get your son tested as soon as possible, he just bit me and I’m… I’m FUCKING HIV POSITIVE.”
<Anonymous> And now there is silence. Not a peep in the entire store. The brat knows he just fucked up big time because his mom isn’t defending his ass. She just stares at me wide eyed. I walk away from them, buy my shit from the wide eyed cashier, all the while blood is dripping from my calf, making a nice little trail on the floor. And, just s we leave, we start to hear the mother sobbing. Sobbing like the cunt she is.
<Anonymous> I have never felt any more satisfaction than the moment I heard that sob."


I fucking loves the intarweb.   read

Megaman 2 Video Rant by David Houghton

Apologies for the epic fail on sound quality, camera phones ain't up to scratch yet.

E-Sports World Cup Coverage

Well, it seems as if no-one has even noticed this is happening on here. I'm told one of the Dtoid army is on his way for the weekend, but alas, there is no news as of yet.

Until that time, the BBC can inform you all. I do feel that Jim or David H should be covering this though, we are right next door afterall.

Rumour; Sony re-re-releases the PSTwo

It's interesting when things like this happen. Sony, it seems, still deem it viable to be spending on R&D, trying to reduce the size and possibly power consumption of it's greatest console to date, the PSTwo. Whilst this could be a reason for the stupid price of the PS3 (Hey I'm poor, stfuajpg) it doesn't make much sense, at least to myself, to release yet another version of your console toward the end of it's lifespan (GBA Micro, I stare at you)

Still, I doubt the new "Size Zero PSTwo" will be as good as this console;


Re-re-lease. When the fans say Bo, selectaaaaaaaaaaa.   read
