Technical Difficulties Part III

How loathsome are hackers? Even when they’re not directly attacking my site, they exploit code for any vulnerablities. Any code base not actively being supported is considered too dangerous to use. So apparently my previous blog theme used some PHP code calls restricted to version 5.2. So when my host stopped providing support for 5.2, …

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Impressions

I briefly touched on the fact that Shadow is a fun, compelling game. There are bugs and flaws, but he total experience rises so far above them that they seem inconsequential. The game realizes its goal of making you feel part of an epic adventure and tied in to the saga of the rings. So …

PlayStation at 20

The Playstation Blog had a bunch of Sony bigwigs and developers list their favorite PS One games.  Just reading their lists brought back tons of great memories.  I thought I’d do mine quickly. Battle Arena Toshinden — This is not a classic game like most of them on the list, but it was one of …

Rocket League Announced for PS4

I’ve mentioned before that Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars for the PS3 was one of the surprise PSN hits for my family.  It’s certainly one of the games that got the most hours last generation.  In essence, it was soccer played with RC cars that could jump, boost and blow each other up. Well, I’m ecstatic …

Instant Update: Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor (PC)

In short, I can’t stop playing.  Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is a fun, compelling game.  It thrusts you behind enemy lines with a wicked skill set that just keeps growing.  You constantly get more deadly.  While few of the parts are shiny and new, they’re put together masterfully.  I grabbed the PC version because …

Technical Difficulties Part 2

I thought I had my problems solved earlier, but some new ones popped up.  I think I’ve gotten a handle on things now.  Essentially, I’ve reinstalled the latest version of WordPress.  Again, let me know if you experience any problems.  Thanks for your patience.

Instant Update: Injustice Gods Among Us

I picked up Injustice: Gods Among Us (PS4) on a PSN sale recently.  I’m definitely more in the Capcom/Street Fighter camp than the Mortal Kombat camp, but I’ve enjoyed them as a diversion.  I also enjoy superhero games.  There are far too few good ones. I haven’t had much time to play, but I did …

Instant Update: Super Hexagon

I still suck at this game.  I just don’t see the path fast enough and reactions can’t compensate any more.  At least I only waste a few seconds per try.  I think I’ll go back to Threes.

Technical Difficulties

I apologize if you’ve had any problems with the site lately. There have been a few technical problems with the site I’ve had to fix. WordPress has been so reliable that I sometimes forget all the times I had to fight with the old content management system. It’s almost shocking when it does have problems …
