Playstation Home Publisher Heavy Water has decided to make easy to use tools for making Games & Machinima.
I'll probably settle for donating $65 if I make a donation around the end of this month. Wish they had a cheaper version of "100% Complete Launch Pak" without a T-Shirt. (They should know better about the T Shirt thing since almost everyone on PS Home hates T-Shirts.)

Even if this Kickstarter reaches its Goal I highly doubt anyone using this will be allowed to publish on PS Home. On the other hand I would really hope we could.
Joystiq is reporting that the 1st Black Ops II DLC will be hitting January 29th thanks to a image circulating around reddit. The DLC will include 4 mutiplayer maps, 1 zombie map, and for the time in COD history, a new weapon will be introduced post release. Check out the image below!

THQ declared bankruptcy last week and is in the process of being purchased by an equity firm. Looks like the THQ humble bundle was a quick cash grab for the company to raise its stock price and to help with the massive debt the company is in. Good news is that the company will continue to support its titles and have not announced any game cancellations.

As many of you know, God of War is introducing mutiplayer in God of War: Ascension. I haven't looked into it at all until now. Basically you create a new warrior. Choose one of 4 gods to align yourself with, and with leveling up you unlock new weapons, armor, magic, items and relics. Their website is pretty vague with details but the beta will start January 8th, 2013 for playstation plus members.
The only game mode revealed so far is "Team favor rush"
From the looks of the video above, I'm guessing one of the objectives might be killing that chained titan. But it makes me wonder if that means one team will defend the titan or if it will be a team competition to see who can kill it first.
How quickly people die and the re-spawn time will be very interesting to see in the beta. Same with game balancing. Seeing as a 4x4 match is a small amount of players, one new guy could really screw a team when going against 4 people that know what they're doing.
Has anyone pre-ordered this game? Or are you looking forward to the God of War multiplayer?
Now that we are using new software, one of the important things is to know how to use it. While IPB is pretty user friendly, I'll go over a couple features that may not be noticeable right away. Here are some quick and easy shortcuts:
1) When you log in, the "View New Content" link at the top right of the screen is the easiest way to see what new content has been added since your last visit or over a set period of time. Once you are on this screen you can use the other links on the left side to choose what kind of content you want to see and by what time period:

2) This little star icon indicates that this is a topic that you have participated in. The regular circles are topics you have not created or replied to:

3) All of these links will take you to the first post you have not yet read:

4) These links will take you to the last post in the topic:

5) If you hover over a topic, you will see this icon, it allows you to see a preview of that topic:

6) This is the topic preview:

7) If you hover over a username anywhere on the site, it will show you a profile card that has quick links to that User's profile, their gallery, blog, send a private message, etc.

As of last night, status updates are no longer viewable to guests or new members. You must be a full member to view all status updates, the shoutbox, the chat room, profiles and to use the search feature.
I also added a tag list to the forum sidebar and Recent Posts (not recent topics, I'm looking into setting up both) are now located on the main page. This should be useful for the mobile theme as it will now show recent posts on the main page before showing new articles.

      My PC had an update and restart only option last night. I had no idea there was another 'creators update' for windows 10. It was the 'fall creators update'. Damn thing took over an hour to install and reset numerous times. And apparently I have a 'windows feature update' that I still have to do. I guess I should check my nvidia drivers and update them today too. I've been having some windows 10 crashes lately so hopefully this update will fix that.

      The new firefox update is amazing. It feels a lot faster even if it does look like a Windows 95 program.

      I've been watching this Comet channel nightly for the last couple weeks. I love this channel now. Its what syfy used to be. Its all scifi re-runs. I've been watching Andromeda, Stargate Atlantis and the 1995 Outer Limits series. Most of these shows are in SD, but adjusted to HD. Looks horrible up close but from a distance and while watching in bed its just like the old days. lol. And they have a whole bunch of b movies.

      Super Mario Odyssey comes out Friday. I'm pretty excited as it will be the first Mario game I've played since Sunshine. But Stranger Things also comes out that day, and I'm going to see Jigsaw that night. too much shit happening at once. X_X

      My right joystick on my Cinch PS4 controller is going bad. It doesn't register right turns very well. I think it has something to do with me taking it apart after the charge port fell into the controller. Part of that is my fault for being spoiled by USB-C and not checking if its in the correct orientation. It lasted me a good year and a half. I'm too spoiled to go back to a regular controller so I ordered another one.
