So I'm standing there happily and directly behind me I hear what I can only describe as a low guttural growl. I dont scare easily. I mean I practically walk in the dark not caring. But I absolutely shit myself and spun around. At first I thought maybe its a dog, but at the same time I knew that sound was so totally not a dog. It was unnerving. And totally unique. Easily the first time I've been scared in over a decade. I'd be lying if I didnt enjoy it. So that was pretty cool.
But for now heres a couple random pictures. Me and my alien statue, and also a new head gear a friend bought me. It fits. I'll admit I felt a little Derek Zoolander coming out, but I suppressed the magnum. It would of been too powerful.

So many exciting things have been announced lately! I want to start with one that makes me little nerd heart the happiest!
We all know what Wifi is right? We see signs posted for it, connect to it, are often aggravated by the speeds and range of it ect ect. The article at the link above is so awesome. Imagine a wifi connection as fast as 2.56TB a second. Right now the newest standardized wifi formate is 802.11ac. Which is capable in theory to send 5GB a second. Thats impressive to us now but in comparison to 2.56TB. Its a laughing joke.
The other thing I wanted to talk about is the Source Filmmaker. When I got to watch their promotional video on this I was floored. Imagine that while you was playing a game you could save a reply of that match. Not a 2D video recording but the entire match as how the server seen it. Every 3D object, movement of players, round fired, ect. Then you could play it back. Move about the entire level like a god and watch whoever you wanted. Thats pretty much one of the MANY abilities Source Filmmaker offers.

So the other day I was at the store and I noticed a couple interesting things. First is this...
Simple Optimus mask. But look at it. Look how SAD he looks. Why would you wear a sad optimus prime face. So sad...
The other was a shirt.
Ignoring my little catch phrase, who would seriously wear that unless they were totally in love with themselves. Still gave me a little giggle. And then I walked away.

The other place is GoG. You can select from the game section to list just the free games.
Same as steam, but you log into the site and it'll show you all your games on a bookcase. I love this site. There are a couple others like GamersGate which is good at time, Impulse, and also Desura, which focuses a lot on indie games. This next link shows a listing of the latest cheap deals happening at each place. It usually catches most of them but never hurts to subscribe to the sites.
Earlier I was given this video and it made me cry. How are people this STUPID?!?

Been enjoying the european football tournament. First time I've been able to stay up till 7am and watch each game Live since I'm not doing either school or work. I wonder if I'll be able to watch the full tournament or will something pop up and stop that.
I know there was something I specifically wanted to mention but my brain seems to be useless. So heres the link to the L4D clip in case some of you didnt realize it was up yet.

The thing is huge. Over 10kg, 28" tall, its huuuuuuuuuuuge..... You cant really appreciate the size unless you have it in front of you. Its like having a 2 year old child, except this one unfortunately isnt alive. I'd so kill to wake up one day and see it just crouching there swishing its tail. Best pet ever. Its also planted in an area where you see it the instant you walk in. My mum doesnt like it. But she was never into horror films and thinks I shouldnt have bought it. I've loved it since I was like 8 or whatever, best movie, still my favourite 2 films out. So heres a few pics I took of it. I seriously cant help squeeling everytime I see it when I come into my room. If I ever get that extension built under the house and move in there, I'll make sure I get a nice sexy glass display case to house it in. For now it sits where it is, perfect spot so when I wake up in the morning I see it looking directly at me. Oh happy days!!

And whats with prerecording your gameplay videos BUT you still have someone on stage pretending to play the product? Do they think this is really fooling anyone? Does it make the gamer believer the game is any more real? Who knows. Its out of my logic. Present non-real time footage
but keep real time stand in.
In other news. I put a little video together for everyone. Con is always trolling me with this great food he eats. Now I get him back!

The Alien statue I've been wanting oh so badly thats been delayed since last october finally came out this week. I was doing cartwheels with joy. It got sent off to the post and I was given a tracking number on wednesday. It HASNT MOVED SINCE! So now I'm pretty much looking to hopefully receive it end of next week. Gonna cry.
I also realized 3 other things that I want super badly I cant afford since I've gone so long without a job. A Thor statue I wanted so badly, being the only Thor statue in his original outfit that I've wanted to buy, a cheaper Christopher Lee one since I'm a massive fan and this one looks brilliant, and also a monitor to replace my 5 year old one. I'm very picky when it comes to pc upgrades and this one totally passed every tick box on my list of purchases. The model being the Samsung S27A750D. I showed Jed it and he's been crying for one too. But he's got other things he's saving up for which are pretty important.
So frustrating that it would only take 1 pay to afford all these. I'll be singing up to government assistance next week so I can get some sort of money until I find a job which I'll be looking for hardcore next week onwards. At least the one positive about being unemployed right now is the European football cup is on in a few days. I've never been able to stay up late enough to watch the matches because of work. This will be a first.
And the funny thing about all this, a friend needed money because of issues and I tossed them $50. I should probably remember next time I dont have many $50 notes left. The tears shall come soon. Heres a couple pics of the statues and also a link to the monitor in case anyone is planning to upgrade their own monitor to something godly. Now I just hope the statues dont sell out too soon. The Thor one is slowly vanishing. Help me Obi-wan Kenobi..
Oh before I forget, Jeds finished the next Portal clip. He's just screwing with creating an intro for it before it goes up. I say screw the intro and upload it lolol
ps. Christopher Lee turned 90 a few days back. And still making movies, like the recent brilliant Hugo. Absolute legend.
