Among other things, this: [Best viewed at fullscreen size, I think.] The “this” refers to both the tank driving and the video editing, but there’s more going on than meets the eye. I joined the 1st Cavalry clan last year at the end of January, and in the brief time since then, in a series […]

Well, nothing much…. See? Told ya.

I’ve been playing a lot of World of Tanks. Several months ago, I joined up with the 1st Cavalry gaming clan. In that time, I’ve gone from raw recruit to deputy commander of the training battalion. Maybe I’m not too terrible at this stuff.

For the past several months, I’ve been playing a lot of World of Tanks (“WoT”), a free-to-play* MMO dealing with armored combat in the period roughly 1920-1970. Battles generally consist of two teams of 15 players, who are usually complete strangers, going head-to-head. Tanks from different countries can be teamed up, so one usually sees […]

It’s called “Take It Back” by Miracle of Sound (whose music I’ve linked before.) It’s got a made-of-awesome beat, and you could probably even dance to it.

It’s called Mass Effect 3, and if by now you aren’t aware that I’m a fan, you haven’t been paying attention. Here’s a sample mission I ran in the wee hours this morning. The goal: to protect some civilians from being kidnapped. Experienced ME2/ME3 players will note that I didn’t make full use of my […]

After weeks — nay, months — of mentioning it on Twitter, on Facebook, and in the occasional post at this very site…. it’s here: I may just be unavailable for the rest of the week.

I’ve been playing with Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11. And since I’m so eager for the release of Mass Effect 3, when I saw an idea from a poster in the Bioware Mass Effect forums, I decided to take the ball and run with it. Here’s the result: Mass Effect 3: Take Earth […]

The third and final installment of the Commander Shepard saga in the universe of Mass Effect drops on March 6… I am, to my own surprise, rather eager for it to arrive. BioWare have released a third trailer. It looks really deeply seriously good. Mild language warning. I’m particularly impressed by the nearly seamless transitions […]

Been playing a bit of Battlefield 3 for the last few weeks while I wait for the March release of Mass Effect 3. It’s good fun. I get killed a lot — my kill/death ratio is only about 0.6 — but I’m improving and enjoying myself in my Copious Free Time. And every once in […]
