One of the worst things you could do while playing a First Person Shooter is shoot-at, maim, or kill a member of your team. Generally this is purely accidental in which you’ll hear (passionate) banter among the players in the heat of the game.
Same team, for !@#$’s sake!
Ah, !@#$, my bad.
And the game would continue on. In some circumstances though it’s a method of revenge or intimidation on a team-member who’s acting out of line or because they are being incredibly stupid in-game. Whatever the reason it’s generally good practice to not screw up the match for the entire team by removing one of your own teammates from the round (because even a n00b is still great distraction and fodder for the other team!).
Fresh off the press, literally. I spent the entire plane ride working on it. 5 hours of non-stop butt-breaking pain. I hate flying.
Hope you like it. Let me know your thoughts (I shared a few here)! I’ll spare mine until I have a few moments to relax.
But now, I have to plan for a very busy Friday…
Download it now! Read more of my thoughts on the launch as well as some of the community’s global goals.
Thank you all for walking with me on this epic journey. I feel like it’s just getting started.
It’s been a long, long, long, time since I’ve redesigned this blog. In fact, I’ve been using my current blog theme (and using it as a foundation of sorts) since early 2010 – I gave a sneak peak in January of that year and who knew that it would eventually grow into a 7-person organization with 3 partners?
But since things have changed for me significantly it’s about time for a significant change of my theme here on my personal blog. What’s neat is that the newest design is nearly done since it was the final product that 8BIT was building before we departed ways.
It’s actually quite fitting as the genesis of it was originally mine and it was my hope to deploy what I believed to be new “format” of personal digital publishing. Jared designed it out, Tom engineered it with precision, and Chris managed the product toward completion.
That image above is the very first image that I ever took of my future bride – I can remember the moment very distinctly as I knew it would catch her off guard (and it did). But she composed herself and I grabbed a quick one with my Canon PowerShot s110 Digital Elph (that baby had 2.1 megapixels yo!).
April 27, 2003, more than 10 years ago. I had no idea at the time that I would eventually pursue her for marriage and that she would say yes and then the next 8 years would be full of tons of surprises (2 beautiful surprises here and here). What a ride (and don’t ask about the necklace, hair, or the earing you don’t see on my left ear…).
I vowed at the altar to do her right, always, and to serve her unconditionally and I have failed miserably time and time and time again. Even a year ago today I said that I would be there for her and guess what, I’m not, even after an incredibly difficult day yesterday I’ve found myself 16.4 miles north trying (again) to submit an app to the Apple App store while trying to retrieve a broken MacBook Air and getting a much-needed haircut.
The “timing” is never quite right, is it? But hey, I’m working on it!
Nothing like celebrating Labor Day 2013 with a day full of actual work (specifically this today)!
I imagine that most people will be taking it easy, sitting on the beach reading a book that they’ve been meaning to dive into while sipping something nice and refreshing under a cool umbrella.
I, on the other hand, am sitting in a darkened office listening to the rain pour off of my roof because it’s gross and nasty here in Atlanta (yes, the streets did need a good and thorough cleaning…).
