120525 rundown …

It was so wet, fish where swimming in the sky! But that didn’t stop the dedication and commitment to play that Raw and Woodie demonstrated, strapping on their floaties and snorkles to join Tone for a night of fun. Evan braved the downpour too and teamed up with Tone in EMPIRE EARTH for a battle of the ages. But first, there were network problems. A full restart of all modems, routers and systems soon had us sorted so the battle could begin.

Evman got bored and abandoned his keyboard to concentrate on beer drinking, Tone quietly built up a spectacular army while Woodie was feeling the heat of sustained attacks from Raw. While they were distracted in battle, Tone took advantage with the odd skirmish but by the end of the night, there was no end of play in site, despite the Prophets proclaiming “the end is nigh.”

120525 thingo…

Yep, it’s on!
Did somebody say  “Does it have an A TEAM VAN in it”?
This does ….

Looks like we’ve got ourselve’s a barbeque!

Discovered hunting around the Steam store, Fireburst is just $9.99.

“Blast opponents off the road with Fireburst, an explosively fun fast-paced arcade style racing game with fantastic graphics. Rev up to scorching speeds to outrun opponents on a dozen different tracks, setting them ablaze in your flaming wake …”
Looks like Mr T is about to get smoked T bone!

Rundown, Showdown …

Raw, Wookie (I always accidentally type that, thought fk it, this time I’m leaving it, he never reads this rubbish anyway) Parts and Tone got serious in GRID. Seriously sideways that is, with plenty of demolition action and SanFransisco street racing mayhem.
Which brings me to a NEW game … featuring SanFransisco and plenty of demolition … DIRT Showdown!

There’s a demo available NOW on Steam, Full version hits the stores on May 25.
It hasn’t been copping a good rap in the youtube comments though – still, lots of people like to winge, it’s free.
Not sure if the A-Team van is in there Raw, or a Delorian for that matter, Batmobile, Speedracer, Podracer … now that would be cool.

Anyway, we also shot each other up in COD2.
‘Twas a cold but pleasant night, thanks fella’s 🙂
