And the prize for the ugliest new unit goes to...

the TF-620 Nomad!
Well, I'm no Art Director. Frankly, I suck a lot at drawing stuff. But this model of the Nomad looks a bit too simple and functional to me. The SCV is like that too, but I guess, with units like the Thor or the Battlecruiser, I thought units that were a bit higher in the tech-t…

by Sunday, December 02, 2007
I came to a conclusion while attempting to build my own Weighted Companion Cube. Half-Life: Portal is a girl's game! here are my reasons why (and a sad attempt of trying to be funny):

by Sunday, November 25, 2007
I haven't posted in almost two weeks, because I was busy taking advantage of Blizzard's 'Scroll of Resurrection'-System, that lets you play for free for ten days, if a friend of yours uses this 'scroll' on your account and you have not been active in 90 days. The idea is to …Read More

by Monday, November 12, 2007
I have seen very diverse reviews when it came to the game Clive Barker's Jericho, and as it happens that I finished the game myself today I just wanted to present my own opinion about the game, and some (counter-)arguments to the most prominent issues.

The Dark Mod; Fodder for Thief-Fans

by Monday, November 05, 2007
As I am somewhat of a sucker for stealth-games, especially the classic Thief-games, which I am playing through for the fourth time these days, I came across a video of a Doom 3-Total Conversion called 'The Dark Mod'.

The mod-team seems to really grasp the spirit of the atmosphere, that made …

Chat with Devs: Since the Terran Cobra took over the Protoss Stasis Orbs slowing attack, the Protoss Orb got a few new abilities including the Force Field ability. This will be very interesting for early team games, as you can use a force field on a choke point to keep an opponent's teammate fr…Read More

by Wednesday, October 24, 2007
Information on the Terran Sensor Tower has been revealed on the official StarCraft II-Website, including new screenshots.
Personally I am not sure what to think of it. It sounds cool on one hand, but on the other it does sound a little bit like cheating. I guess we'll just have to wait to see h…

Hellgate: London Beta played

by Saturday, October 20, 2007
Weeks ago I signed up for the Hellgate: London Beta, without any expectations, since I wasn't too keen on trying the game out, and my rig, as far as I thought, actually not good enough to even fire the game up. Two days ago I received a beta-invitation to one of the most anticipated games of th…Read More

Jim Raynor = Kevin Federline

by Saturday, October 06, 2007
Some people over at pointed out how similar SC's 'new' Jim Raynor actually looks to Britney Spears ex-husband Kevin Federline and other celebrities. See for yourself!

My Superpowers

by Thursday, October 04, 2007
Since my first and second (not yet posted) attempts of serious writing got a little bit of criticism for being too violent and gruesome, I tried again writing about something less harsh. It's still (supposed to be) quite dramatic though. It's also the most I have ever written.
