Guess who’s back!

3 August, 2010

The first “Driver” was one of my most fave games of all time, Driver comes again screaming down the streets for the 5th time.

As it appears it’s all about exciting driving! Hell! they even brought back the wonderful car-chase action handling of the original Driver, over 100 models to drive, plus a magnificent in-car view. Judging from the video it looks like an all car driving game and it was about time that they stopped developing GTA clones in the Driver franchise!

Comes out early in 2011, so have an extra can of petrol handy for that V8! Don’t say I haven’t warned ya cowboy!

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. realistic

2 August, 2010

Although it is in Russian it is fabulous to watch

And now watch this, just because good video games are inspired from disasters, that doesn’t mean catastrophes are fun!


The 3rd time in the Zone

2 August, 2010

If you’re an avid fps game fan, you’re bound to know the series of games called S.T.A.L.K.E.R. developed by the Ukrainian team GSC Game World, beginning in 2007 with the truly epic Shadow of Chernobyl, continues in 2008 with Clear Sky and hit our screens for the 3rd time last February (2010) with Call of Pripyat.

The series is based loosely on the film Stalker by Andrei Tarkovsky and the same titled novel of the Strugatsky brothers. The main story behind the STALKER series, in very short, is that after the disaster in Chernobyl in 1986 the Soviet Union continues experiments in secret labs located in the now deserted area around Chernobyl. A second explosion in 2006, creates the Zone, an area of  30km in radius, unique for it is host to extreme anomalous activity in nature and mutant Read the rest of this entry »


Turning to mac

28 July, 2010

Y’know there many reasons as to why I prefer Macs and their OS from Windows. It is not only because simply macs look beautiful, of course they do, but MacOS is far more stable and quicker than that ol’bucket-of-crap called  Windows. MacOS doesn’t need patch after patch to be safe and work right, MacOS rarely crashes etc etc, you all know them reasons.

There was only one reason that kept me from buying a Mac all those years and that is it’s price! And since I’m spending about 3/5ths of my average day in front of a screen doing graphics and 3D (and yes playing games when not on work!) I demand a high end machine, which in Apple terms that means more expensive than they are. Read the rest of this entry »


Hummertime no more…

26 February, 2010

I’ve just read so, these are sad news but I guess times go from bad to worse and Hummer goes down that lane too, unfortunately.

GM has revealed that they will be closing their HUMMER brand after an attempt to sell the brand to the Chinese Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machines Co. has failed.

I’ll ask you one thing: Can you ever imagine a Chinese Hummer??! Can you imagine a “MADE IN CHINA” tag on your brand new Hummer???!!
No I guess not!!!

My opinion is that closing HUMMER is for the best, selling it to the Chinese… well it just doesn’t sound or fit right. It’s like all those Daewoo shitty cars that got the Chevrolet badge (and fame?) overnight.. but for God’s sake they still look like Korean shitty vehicles!!!

For one the HUMMER, along with the Willys, the CJ-7 and several other traditional off roads are the epitomy of the Pure American off road vehicles. You simply cannot have a Hummer made in China, or a Wrangler Jeep made in Korea!

Sad news indeed, I’m not much of an SUV or Offroad fan myself, but Hummer took the cake for being ugly, monstrous, thus unique 😀
So long HumsHums

Incinerator, Old School Thrash!

16 August, 2009

INCINERATOR_Logo_RedBlack

I’ve just realized that I haven’t posted anything about my thrash metal project called INCINERATOR. It’s an ongoing old school thrash metal thingy (aka project) that I’m having since 2000.

Influences are purely from the stuff I’ve grew up with: D.R.I., very early Metallica, early Slayer, early Sepultura, Kreator, Destruction, Demolition Hammer, Heathen, Atrophy, Sodom, Exhorder, Sacred Reich,  Believer, Motorhead, Protector, early Anthrax, Messiah, Tankard, Sabbat… good old school Thrash in short!

The lyrics deal with all the cliche issues a thrash band can have, after all INCINERATOR was never meant to be a pioneering band, so the issues dealt with are basically your average Evil, your average Satan, Read the rest of this entry »
