Tomb Raider: Anniversary Video

Welcome back, Miss Croft! After countless sequels of crappy Tomb Raiders, finally a version comes out that recaptures that magic of the first two games. This Anniversary edition reimagines the first Tomb Raider, the one I have so many fond memories of, and updates it with modern graphics, new gameplay mechanics, and a remastered soundtrack. I cannot begin to describe how happy I am that a Tomb Raider game is fun again.

With that said, I’ve recorded a video of me in action playing Tomb Raider: Anniversary. Click here to watch it.

My DeskShot

I just uploaded my DeskShot.

I spend a lot of time on and around computers. I fix them for other people for money. I use mine for entertainment, watching widescreen movies, playing the latest games, and listening to music. I use mine for research and learning, and for communicating with friends and family. I use mine for working on web designs and posting my blog, occasionally. I’m always tinkering with my setup, whether it be my desk or inside my computer.

My computer is overclocked so much, pushing it beyond its official limits, that it puts out so much heat. I had an elaborate venting system put in place; an aluminium tube from the back of the computer and a fan in a plastic box that pushes the hot out through a hole in the wall that leads outside.

Here’s a shot of my desk, available at DeskShot where you can show off your desk:

The idea behind DeskShot is to upload a picture of your desk and get feedback from others, while also perusing pictures of others’ desks to get ideas for your own. For example, the lamp behind my monitor pointing upwards at the wall to create ambiance in the room was an idea I took from another person’s setup. You can also tag your picture, pointing out certain items on/around your desk to visitors.

This is a post paid for by ReviewMe, talking about DeskShot.

World of Warcraft – Flying Mount

I’ve been sucked back into the world of World of Warcraft, thanks to the Burning Crusades expansion, and managed to get to level 70, and bought the coveted flying mount. This has effectively opened up a whole new world in the game, allowing for greater freedom and less dying, and saved time. I also, as a kid at heart, love doing silly tricks like falling from the greatest height into the water. Witness for yourself this:

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a pilotTake flying lessons and start your journey.  Learning to fly is exciting but expensive learn how to obtain school loans.  You’ll achieve your dreams in no time.

Visiontek Radeon X1950 Pro AGP Review

Instead of spending up to or over $1,000 to upgrade my motherboard, processor, and power supply in order to buy the latest generation of PCI-e cards, I decided to stay with my current system and get the latest and fastest AGP solution available. Since ATI just released their new Radeon X1950 Pro cards which supports AGP, I decided to give one a spin.

This is where the Visiontek XGE Radeon X1950 Pro 256MB card (MSRP: $300) comes in.  It has AGP, has a bit of legroom for future gaming, and it allows me to get instant gaming satisfaction until I can come up with the funds to get a whole new system.  So is the X1950 Pro AGP the answer to gamers who want to stay with AGP for a bit longer?  Read on to find out in this review of Visiontek’s XGE X1950 Pro 256MB video card.
