Am I a nice guy? No, but I have a sweet Fedora (Linux)!

That’s right, I’ve installed another OS on my humble and mildly broken laptop. Fedora Linux 22.

Update: Switched to a USB 3.0 32GB drive. Works so much better.

Linux and my Personal Paradigm Shift

After roughly 2 days of Googling, burning, writing, formatting, downloading, installing, and generally fighting for every byte of hard won space, I have a fully functional full-install of Linux Mint 17.1 MATE running off a 64 GB Mushkin Nano USB drive. Continue reading

Gears of War (Xbox 360) and Alienware

I don’t play Gears of War all that much anymore for a few reasons.

The guys on the ranked matches are mostly ass-holes, and I never found it fun to die and then be out of the game, or be downed multiple times while your enimies just took points from you.

Gears of War is a fun game, don’t get me wrong. I’m trying to go for the achievements and playing ranked matches where I get my ass handed to me and then taunted about it really kinda sucks. Execution is a fun gametype. As is Warzone. Getting kills takes forever though. I’m probably closest to the “It’s a Massacre” achievement (100 Kills in Ranked multiplayer with the Chainsaw) at 10, in execution, + 6 in warzone, so 16/100… Geezuz.

I haven’t even gotten to play a lot of the new gametypes, or new maps. Raven Down is my least favorite. I got left there with one other guy, who was good, but we spawned in differnt parts of the map, so we just got picked off, excuse me, I got picked off, and then they just ganged up on my teammate, who ends up killing two of them, before he’s wasted. The Gnasher is the WoC (Weapon of Choice) on that map. I like the Lancer better, but people just chase you down and nail you, it’s so retarded. There’s not even any acievement for the shotty, but everyone uses it more than anything else. You just get chased down and wasted before you even get to hit the Chainsaw button. What was supposed to make it easier to kill, only ends up getting you killed. The sound tips anyone off, and all the do is whip out their shotties and shotgun-whip your ass. It’s lame as hell.

The old saying, “don’t hate the player, hate the game!” doesn’t apply here. When guys are too good, and then brag about it, and taunt you, and then leave YOU bad feedback. It’s like, WTF? Especially when they leave complaints, and all you did was apologize and try to be courteous. So I got a couple cheap kills, the game let me, not some retarded mods or whatever! How am I unsporting? That was the bad feedback I got. Coouple that with complaints and you get a BANHAMMER. I don’t need the bad feedback just cuz you don’t like me. Say I lack skill or something else. If you don’t like me, don’t needlessly penalize me.

Alienware. The brand that builds their computers to do anything. I’m trying AGAIN to get the m9750 laptop. I’m going DUAL 8800GTs for GPU. I need the DirectX 10. I’m going with the 2.16 GHz DUAL CORE proccessor, because if you’re under that, you almost can’t play anything. I’m also loading two 160GB 7,200 RPM HDDs. I would use SSD but they’re way too expensive. I’m going to use my Wired 360 Controller and the Chaos Green Alienware prescision gaming mouse. I’m also going 108p WUXGA+ because it’s awesome. I want a computer that isn’t going to be obsolete after 4 seconds. So I’m trying to stick with the most, if not close to most advanced stuff on their market. Obviously it ain’t cheap, so I’ll be loading some school apps on too, and taking that job at BJs to pay it off.

Ok, thats my rant for today. Later peeps.

New Computer Impossible

Yeah, Uh, a Gaming Computer, which is what I need for what I want to do… Is set at an insane price…

Like 3,400 dollars, roughly.

So, an XPS M1710 which has EXACTLY what I want… Isn’t going to happen. I’m a little ticked, but what can I do? I mean seriously, 3,400 dollars!?

Thats a bit insane…

New Computer…is the only option for a Gaming Laptop…straight from Dell… Crap-sapckle
