Net Neutrality… again

Posted in Articles, News with tags , , , on August 12, 2010 by parasomia

This is just turning into a huge shit storm.  With Google and Verizon teaming up and wanting to create a fake net neutrality and deceive us all.  Damn you Google, you wouldn’t be anywhere where you’re at now if it weren’t for the ideas of the Internet freewill.  I mean, god forbid if something has freewill.  Nope, can’t have that, got to have the god damn corporations regulate everything.  And we know how amazing that works out, don’t we?  Fucking idiots… fucking idiots.

Take away my Internet, you say?  Regulate what should and shouldn’t be allowed?  Keep down any possible future competition?  You fucking douche bags.   Not that what I say matters.  I’m just a little blog here that barely gets written on anymore and perhaps will be regulated by some industry giant because Zomg I badmouthed something.  No, fuck you, I’ll enjoy my Net Neutrality while it is still here.

For now, I’m going to paste an excellent blog writeup from Craig Aaron on the Huffington Post.  Because it’s just very good and speaks volumes of what could be: Continue reading

And the gaming dry spell comes to an end soon

Posted in Articles, News on August 9, 2010 by parasomia

You know, it’s quite funny.  This whole Summer time thing that happens every year where it is generally a horrid time for gamers, but at the same time it’s a good time.  What I mean by that is the sun is out and if you happen to be in school then you have all that time off to chillax with some friends and just be a kid and enjoy life and make some memorable moments that you WILL fondly look back upon.  At the same time though it is kind of a bitch, eh?

Interesting notes on psx4droid and FroYo

Posted in Articles, News with tags , , , , on July 26, 2010 by parasomia

So I decided to go against what I wanted to do and root my Droid.  I know, I know, rooting is da bestest zomg.  And I’m sure that’s true, but I just haven’t felt like getting into that scene although it is awfully tempting.  No, I just wanted to do some testing and plan to go back to the official 2.1 firmware.  So what am I using?  Well, I rooted and updated to FroYo (because I couldn’t help but get a sneak peak) and used the program SetCpu to overclock the Droid.  I was very much wanting to see how big of a difference that would make in how psx4droid performed.

The possibilities of DLC (hopefully not)

Posted in Articles, News on July 21, 2010 by parasomia

I’m noticing this slight trend lately which is a bit… disturbing.  Granted, it’s a tiny thing but I question whether it might expand much more in the future.  This trend of course is the use of downloadable content (DLC).  Wait a second…there is nothing wrong with DLC and it can offer gamers a lot more fulfillment and variety in their favorite titles.  But what if it were used for more, shall we say, evil ways?

Dried up Summers? Good!

Posted in Articles, News on July 20, 2010 by parasomia

It’s Summer, the heat is crazy and it tends to get a bit annoying staying outside constantly, although you are loving your unintentional sun tan.  But if you’re a gamer or anything resembling that, then you might find yourself a bit bothered and bored.  There is usually a severe lack of gaming goodness throughout the Summer, but it really isn’t all that bad.  As gamers, we get branded with not wanting to leave the comfort of our homes because we’re afraid of the sunlight.  This just isn’t true, its just those games are so damn fresh!  And honestly, who wants to go outside when, A: It’s way too damn hot out.  B: It’s way too damn cold out and there’s a foot of snow.  Exactly, although I completely condone going out, enjoying yourself, and doing numerous, various things throughout the week.  However, in the interest of this writing, the lack of games throughout Summer can be a great thing besides pushing folks outside more often.

E3 – Wrap Up

Posted in Articles, News with tags , on June 20, 2010 by parasomia

That loveable E3 event has come and gone and with it, memories that may or may not last a lifetime.  I assume that depends on your age and if you were an attendee or stuck at home.  “Why, when I was younger, E3 was full of magic and loveable creatures… and boobies.”  Yes, yes it’s true.  I can admit that the nostalgic value of E3’s past is always fun and at one time I would gather all the videos I could find and put my own E3 presentation together for some friends.  It was good times.  No, scratch that, it was a blast and just happened to be in an era of years for me that were good all around.  Rambling, rambling, misfits and dwarfs.  Continue reading

Lack of E3 coverage – It happens

Posted in Articles, News with tags , on June 20, 2010 by parasomia

I’ve had a severe lack of E3 coverage on this blog the past few days.  I started out rather well, but sometimes things just come up.  This could range from your girlfriend/wife/favorite prostitute going into labor, AIDS, or one of those ill-fated zombie infestations.  Thankfully, nothing of the sort came up for me but I did find myself in dire need to get away from things and that’s just what I did.
