Link for mobile devices

Well this was one way to celebrate the Independence day of the USA.  Red White and Blue Fireworks effects going off all over the place. I won’t question the July 3rd date on the video


GT Diablo II retrospective

June 29th, 2014 marks 14 years since the release of Diablo II for the Windows PC. Probably the first Action RPG game that I ever played in a multiplayer Co-op situation thanks to living near a PC gaming LAN cafe. I think that I usually played as the Amazon during both the single-player and multiplayer.

Gametralers, a website that uploads video game trailers and reviews has been working on a video retropective of Blizzard’s Diablo series.

 

Link to Gametrailers site where the video is hosted. There’s at least one more part in the series left since Diablo 3 and Reaper of souls expansion is the most current game.

 

 

 


June 2014 – Steam Summer Sale goes on

It’s June 23rd and we are still in the PC gaming madness that is known as the Steam Summer Sale. Digital Download of games gets discounted from 30% to 75% percent off. In certain cases this includes Bundles and franchises such as FarCry or Bioshock. Even discounts on pre-orders.  I made a quick post about it on another site.

 

The Summer sales will end 30th.

 

 

 

 


Power outtage- at least it didn’t last long

Happened earlier today and I was actually in the shower when the power got knocked out. Thankfully I learned my lesson already.

Took the power company 5-20 minutes to get the issue resolved and the neighborhood powered back up. Something around 2,000 homes were affected by this thing.  I can be thankful that it wasn’t in the middle of the night or during something more critical.


Firefox version 30 is out

We go from version 29 to 30 and the biggest change is a quick button that shows a pull down menu for your favorites/bookmarks. Placed next to the “bookmark” star button.

 

The color scheme and default look of the tabs still remind me of Chrome.


Was Friday the 13th today

So it is the end of June, 13th, 2014. A Friday. Thankfully nothing strange happened. It was actually a good day. Found some good reading material. Still going thought E3 announcements and had some “comfort” food for dinner.

 

 


Reading Rainbow flaring up on KickStarter

This is probably the best news I have heard all month  TV Actor, Internet personality  Levar Burton started a Kickstarter campaign to bring back a project he was previously involved with. Reading Rainbow.  They have raised 3 Million USD already but at 5 Million, We can get RR on video game consoles and streaming devices like the Roku. Finally get it on Android too. I don’t own an Apple iphone or iPad so can’t use the app.

30 days left to go.  Awesome show when it was on TV one of the few reason I  even watched PBS back in the day. Reading time happened a lot more often on that show  than  at my library.
