Ratchet pouts as he is missing clank.

Ratchet pouts as he is missing clank.

Ratchet Deadlocked.
When I grabbed the package I didn’t even notice the lack of Clank in the product name. It is half the name and half the game. Basically Ratchet is stuck in the gladiator arenas. The other playable vehicles take a bit away from the monotony, but overall it should be a value edition release. The “hard edge” has worsened as well. Substitute profanity comes much closer to using the actual words, and more frequently. Is it still a platformer? Compared to the other Clank games = just barely.

Have you seen him?

January 18th, 2009

I must research and rent that Animal Chin skater movie I saw as a kid. I seem to
remember nearly every skater movie I watched had a long straight-haired skinny girl
in it (i.e. Tom Petty Free Falling vid). Animal Chin seemed really cool, but
I was so young and impressionable then…

Cheaper it cannot get.

Why can’t I have a pause button on my downloads? Microsoft is so busy with
fighting everyone and trying to rule the world they are not paying attention to
simple Operating System things. How about a simple search and replace for multiple files?
Easy ways to rename multiples? Look for duplicates with same CRC or names? Instead
I get some animated dog in my search window with three clicks to just find a file. Grr.

Piso (Floor) DDR Pad about 5 Bucks

January 18th, 2009

A brilliant Third-world dance platform idea! Piso Pad (Piso means floor) This is astonishing work! Spend five bucks and use DWI or Stepmania running on a computer with a joystick port (remember those?). I have been envisioning a button made like this with both contacts on the bottom protect the wires. My next pad design will be one solid piece, openable on the fly, and have no moving parts. Nils Reichert sent me a cool page about wiring a USB control box out of a standard LIK-Sang Xbox box. This would be a brilliant replacement as the
EMS Joypad I was using does feel slow and lag. This DDR workshop would have been so fun!
