New project.

Lately I have being pretty distant from my blog. Me and a friend of mine have being working on a project which I am hoping will bring some laughs to people. It is a little comedy. I hope to post it soon when my friend is done editing the footage ad posts it on youtube. Its pretty amateur stuff at the moment but it's just for fun.

But as for gaming I am playing Bulletstorm at the moment. The story of the game is a little weak. Random battle occurring every 10 steps of walking but there is alot of aspects of the game I like. One would be the game allows you to be creative in the way you kill your enemies. You are awarding skill points for killing an enemy in different ways. You can kick them into spikes, mutated plants and electrical appliances to shock them. The more creative you are the more points you obtain.00

I am not too impressed with the multi player in the game but I did not play it so much.
Anyways I hope I can Blog a little more.

Magika Addictive fun.

Started to play magika lately because it was recommended by a friend. It is strangely addictive. I am still getting used to the keys but its a comical game. You start off the game thinking its a game of magical quests and storyline but its just a total pisstake of a game. My favorite moment so far was after you ''save'' the castle of Havindir the king is beinh approached by a messenger and its just ripping on the movie 300 ''Madness'' scene. A giant well; behind the messenger and the king in a ''kick'' stance. Other monets such as the James Bond mockery. A giant gun being powered by a troll (on a bicycle) and you must kill the troll while 2 warlocks are trying to kill you, but they start throwing firebolts at each other during the fight.

It is a game you cant take serious. But it is Defiantly  worth a look. The new DLC available on steam is only 4.99 and its called Magika Vietnam (riping on the latest Battlefield). I am having alot of fun with this game and the MultiPlayer is fast paced but very enjoyable. Looking for a new game on a budget it is definatley worth a look.

Recomended sites for Computer hardware.

I am just going to give you a short list of websites I bought some stuff from over the times. (A little pricey but reliable) (Only worth it for Ireland and England really) (again Ireland and England)
These are what i used and the delivery was pretty quick. I am having some problems with my HDD at the moment also. Think its fried, Between this and my internet I am not having a good week of it.
Anyone else got any sites they would recomend?

I need help.

I am enjoying playing some of my old games on the new rig but I need some multiplayer online game to get addicted to again. I am trying league of legends but I am in need of a FPS. Any suggestions?

Also I am using a crappy internet line with a wireless card and my latency is  apporx 500ms per server yet i load web pages quite fast. Anyone got any tips on how I can lower my latency?

While I was researching what components to buy this you tube channel really helped.This guy reviews all new and upcoming Computer hardware and answers alot of questions. I am recommending this because I was able to see what the parts looked like, see how they performed and the statistics of them.

Gaming RIg is up and working.

Apologies for the lack of post's last week. I have being working alot and in my spare time I have being puting my rig together. Finally got Windows 7 Ultimate installed and first thing I put on this was Crysis. It's like an orgasm for my eyes. Detail is astounding.

Anyways the Specs for my computer are:

Graphics card: ASUS 6950 2Gb (voltage tweaked)
Motherboard: ASUS RAMPAGE II
Processor: i7 950 Overclocked to 4Ghz
RAM: x3 Corsair 2Gb
Heatsink : Problema Tech Megahalems (dual tower)
Power Supply:  Corsair 850w
Hardrive: Seagate Barracuda 2Tb
CD Drive: LG Super Multi Blue ( blue ray)
Case: Xclio

AS you can see I done alot of research into what I have picked out. WOuld not mind to hear some feedback on what you guys think. I still have 3 RAM spaces empty so I might add a further 6GB RAM but at the moment this machine is lightning fast. I am in love with it.
I did not overclock this machine myself because I am a total noob and would melt everything. Let me know what you guys think.

Gaming rig : Case arrived

The case for my gaming machine arrived a few days ago. Just I have being very busy and unable to find time to post. It's an Xclio A380 Colour Black Tower. It has a giant fan on the front. a ncie size one at the sde pointing straight at the motherboard slot and a nice one at the back. The front fan makes this case look like it is going to take off and fly. Its pretty heavy for a case but very nice size. I am in love with this so far and I really can't wait to get this show on the road.

Over the last year or so I have workd on my fitness. I have being doing free weights and cardio excersise. I am planing on applying for the local fire services using this as my incentive to train. Before chistmas with all the hype, work etc training took a lapse but the new year brought some interesting gains. I now run outside the gym alot more (cross country style) and my free weight records are climbing (slowly) but it feels fantastic to be back at it making gains.

Running at the moment i can do 19 Kilometers in 1h 45mins roughly and I can bench 60Kg
I am training for the Marathon and am hoping to finish it at least im not worried about my time thats for next one to worry about.
Over the past year my fitness went from Sim unfit to fit. i passed the Fire services physical no problems which was an achievment for me as i was nowhere near fit when I decided I wanted to join up.

Now feeling the burn and enjoying it immensly, Cant wait to log my progress from here on out.
