Remember the Early Days of Gaming!

Saturday, March 1st, 2014

sknr_logo_smallAs a long time gamer that went from the early home consoles to the PC for my gaming needs, I can appreciate just how much things have changed since the days of the Atari 2600 and first Nintendo system.

While I still prefer the PC for the majority of my gaming, I do own and play on the consoles mainly for exclusives and a change of pace.  With that being said, I have not been a fan of the trend of micro-transactions and pay to play model that has become commonplace in many games. I appreciate the growing costs of game development, but if you are asking for $59.99 for a game, to me it is wrong to charge people for in game items and for the “privilege” of being able to play online and against other players.

Motorcycle Friendly Hotel Manager Races in the 46th Baja 1000 #5

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

rm 675-paulOur chase trucks start to meet up now as the 2 in the south head north and meet the west coast truck.  Around 8pm we all meet on the side of the road at race mile 670.  Paul is ready to get on the relay bike and does so around 930pm.  Mladen has had a good section.  A small mechanical problem when the fuel line cracked and the bike stopped but he was able to make the repair quickly with the tools he had.  The bike has been going for 22 hours straight now.  Pretty amazing that has been the only issue.

Jurassic World vs Star Wars: Episode VII: Who Has More To Lose?

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

star warsAlthough they will not be going head to head in the summer of 2015, both “Jurassic World”, and “Star Wars: Episode VII” have huge expectations and pressures upon them.  “Jurassic World” is attempting to jump start the lucrative franchise for Universal and since “Jurassic Park 3” came out in 2001, there is some question if the audience for the franchise has faded. Director Colin Treverrow is an odd choice in my opinion has he has only done one film to date, “Safety Not Guaranteed”, and has not worked with a big budget, advanced FX, 3D, and a studio and fandom watching his every move.

Motorcycle Friendly Hotel Manager Races in the 46th Baja 1000 #4

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

group shot1With pre running all complete and only a few days until race day, it was time to organize our plan.  All riders finished practicing their sections without injury, goal #1.  We would have 5 vehicles on race day chasing the 3 race bikes.  Each vehicle would have a spare bike on board that parts could be robbed off if needed.  Other items on board would include satellite phones, food, water, tools, first aid kits, a spare rider, etc.  Basically we would have 2 trucks servicing the bikes in the centre of the Baja peninsula and east coast.  The other 3 trucks would take care of the bikes down in the southern portion and on the west coast.

After Aliens: Colonial Marines, Can Gamers Trust Sega With Alien: Isolation

Saturday, February 8th, 2014

Alien_Isolation-219x166Gamers would be hard pressed to find many reviewers or players who were happy with Aliens: Colonial Marines which came in with lofty expectations and crashed harder than the escape pod on Fury 161 in “Alien 3”.  One could point to the outsourcing, sub-par graphics and gameplay, plot holes, glitches, and numerous other issues as to why the game failed but I think that has been very well covered to date. With the failure of Aliens: Colonial Marines in mind and with Alien: Isolation on the way, I have found myself asking if it is possible to save the franchise as a viable gaming option. (more…)

Desert Camp Out

Watch out for those scorpion’s

With a week or so to go till race day, the rest of the team showed up.  The adventure really got exciting when 5 of us went to pre run race mile 385 to 525.  The day started great as usual, until we entered 10 miles of 3 foot deep silt beds.  A fine sand like substance that just floats in the air, clogging and killing motors in cars and bikes.  At race mile 430, my bike decided it had had enough.  2pm and David and I are sitting in the desert with a broken bike, 80 miles from the nearest accessible road.  Another racer comes along and we ask him to let Mladen ( another one of our guys ahead ) know we are stuck.  A few hours later, Mladen shows up and we try for hours to figure the bike out.  Nothing works.
