Of Gaming, RuneScape HD and Spammers

I'm off RuneScape, as we all know, so what games do I play in the 6 hours each day I have ?

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

Unpatched, this game is boderline unplayable with the sheer number of bugs, patched like my version and I'll be able to use all the details and shadows on high on my 4 year-old rig.

During the course of this game, you'll have/have been/be.

Shot - Unavoidable.
Cut - Not all swords in the Star Wars universe are 'laser'.
Cut by a lightsabre - May be avoided. If you have plenty of stun and ways to hold the guy in place. These guys can actually throw lightsabres so that might get in your way.
Seen a plot twist - Unavoidable. Big plot twist too.
Bought a droid - Unavoidable.
Been captured - Unavoidable.
Leveled up - Unavoidable.
Used an Escape Pod - Unavoidable.
Manned a pair of gun turrets - Unavoidable.
Spoken to someone - Don't ask.
Joined a guild of assassins so secret that I, a Star Wars fan didn't even know existed - Avoidable. If you try to join, you'll get some really nice gear.
Driven a Swoop Bike - Unavoidable. It's safer than Pod Racing. Or at least that's what the sinister looking Hutt said. That one guy did mention scraping corpses off the track...must be trying to get me to back out.

That's not half of it. There's also joining the Sith, killing stuff, diving, almost being eaten by sharks, going to court at least twice, become a Jedi killed, the galaxy's toughest bounty hunter, killed the galaxy's toughest Sith's apprentice, killed the galaxy's toughest Sith, raiding some ancient, really powerful Sith lord's tomb, been on a spacewalk, lost money, gained money, gotten involved with the Star Wars equivalent of a biker gang, watched a planet get wiped out, used an elevator and tried to ward off a giant shark.

Star Wars Empire at War

We all know what this one's about.

During the course of this game, you'll have/have been/be.

Killed something - Duh.
Conquered a planet - Double Duh.
Run over a target with your vehicle - Avoidable. Still fun.
Killed something in space - Saw that one coming, didn't ya ?

Meh, short list.

Star Wars Republic Commando

First Person Shooter version of Star Wars that doesn't involve any Jedi. Lots of action, too much work for your integrated windshield wiper on your visor cleaning off the blood and assorted detritus after a close kill.

During the course of this game, you'll have/have been/be.

Shot - It's a First Person SHOOTER !
Cut - This is where your integrated mini laser windshield wiper on your helmet visor comes in.
Shot something - Allow me to reiterate: It's a First Person SHOOTER !
Cut something with that little knife thing in your glove - Avoidable Less work for your integrated mini laser windshield wiper on your helmet visor.
Seen a guy get killed - Let's just hope that guy wasn't an important part of your team.
Gotten vile green bug juice all over your visor - Geonosians = Bugs + the melee weapons they use = plenty of giggles over the yellow/green splat on your visor.
Killed a short, stumpy, biped lizard with a shotgun - Don't ask.
Killed a short, stumpy, biped lizard with twin knives - Repeat what I said above.
Killed a slightly taller, stumpy, biped lizard with a submachinegun - Refer to what is said above.
Killed a really big, armoured, biped lizard with a chaingun - It's starting to sound like Doom 3 here.


The Beta verson of Runescape HD is out ! It's for members only ! It's a blatant advertising gimmick ! I feel a strong urge to start paying again even with the increasing prices !

Love them but it looks like I'll have to subside on the screenshots on other blogs. Ya hear that Tim and Marlaine ?! More screenshots !

Spam Wars Episode 5: kaneenlynch Strike Back !

That runt changed his IP. Talk of spammers is circulating like wildfire across the internet. Spammers cost people millions, on average, it appears that 10 BILLION+ that's right, with a 'B' E-Mails sent are spam each day.

I don't get what drives them ? A sadistic nature ? Stupidity ?

The majority are adverts. For some reason, most of the spam mail I get comes from one address.
