Halloween TIME!!!!

It’s Halloween time! Next to Christmas, I have to say that Halloween is my favorite time of the year. I hope you like my newly decorated blog.

With that being said I want to apologize for the lack of any type of real update. I went from almost 3 posts a day to 1 post a week to not posting in a few weeks. So what has Rob been up to?

Taking Down the Red Army

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. I have been busy plus apparently, I have a upper respiratory infection, which makes life annoying. Over the weekend I bought the Collector’s edition of Word in conflict. This is Real time Tactical game which takes you back to 1989 during the cold war. Instead of the soviet union falling they invade Europe and eventually invade America. The concept behind this is very intriguing. Not even a teenager back when the Cold War ended, only much later in life could I comprehend/respect all that happened. So it was definitely cool to experience this “What if.”

The game play in this game is a lot of FUN it you play as the silent antagonist named Continue reading

I am excited about Metaplace.

So for the past 2 days I have been looking forward to Areae, Inc. releasing their new secret product called Meta Place.

As of Today they have. I would really recommend going over to Cuppy Cake’s blog or the Meta Place Website to read all about it. I am still trying to grasp the concept, but from what I have read and understood this could be big. Thinking of the possibilities available to you, with the tools that they claim are easy to pick up and go with only your imagination could hold you back.  Thinking of the limitless things I could possibily do is very exciting. Hell I am already trying to sell my fiancée on it by creating her own virtual photo gallery for her Photography work.

I for one can’t wait to “dig in” and check this out.

R.I.P FASA Studios

I am really sadden to hear this. I held on to a shred of hope that (through Microsoft) FASA Studios would revive the Mech Warrior Franchise. I was a huge, huge HUGE Mech Warrior fan, and I can remember some down right vicious online battles in Mech warrior 4. But those days will forever be tucked away in my heart. Mitch Gitelman Manager for FASA Studios had this to say on the Shadow Run boards

 

Dear Friends,

It is my sad duty to announce that FASA Studio has officially closed its doors. Today was the official last day of employment for those of us who had not moved on to other positions within Microsoft Game Studios. While the rumors have been circulating forever, we chose to wait on an official announcement because we didn’t want people’s attention distracted from our last product, Shadowrun, a game we love.

As a testament to the team’s commitment to Shadowrun, we released three title updates to improve the product even after the team learned we were losing our studio. We have kept our Community Manager and Technical Support Manager on the job to aid and support you and will continue to do so while people continue to play our game. I am pleased that about half of us have found great positions elsewhere in MGS and Microsoft where they can share their experience and passion with the great people there.

But now, as the last of us say our goodbyes to each other, I’m saying goodbye to you on behalf of a group of talented and dedicated professionals who busted their humps for the love of the game. I am proud to have worked with and represented them to you and know that wherever they go, they will continue to kick ass.

Mitch

Sigh ….. That really sucks.

Random Stuff…..

I had a pretty good weekend, I made it back from the guys road trip, and I am in one piece. Austin is looking good and I am looking forward to seeing it again.

I did not mention, but I got my Berserker out to Butcher Block on Friday.
However I have not been able to play much since I got him there.

Runcorn is currently camped at the Dock in Butcher Block.

As my life aspirations have changed some what, things having to do with such changes have come more to the fore front in my life. One small aspect of that is a movie I have seen before, but only recently put it in my top favorites.

Grandma’s Boy

Oh, how I wish life could be easy as sitting around, playing video games and making a true comfortable living off of it. Props to those who do it, I hope to one day be in that position. I look at this movie as a nod at the things I am into and have made it one of my own personal cult favorites. Obviously there is nothing one may find “profound” in this movie. However, it relates to things I am in to, so I put it in the Niche category of my DVD Collection.

Over the busy weekend I was able to steal a few short hours playing BioShock on my PC last night before bed. I got to tell you this game is very well done and I really enjoyed what I got to play. I look forward to playing more of it, now I just have to balance that in with the other games I have little time for lately. Sometimes feeling overwhelmed about certain things is a good thing. 🙂
