FIXED (hopefully): Fallout 3 random crashes just ruin the game’s immersion

December 6, 2009

This is a masterpiece of a game that still is as stable as the San Andreas fault. The random crashes to desktop just ruin the immersion. Please get this game stable!

UPDATE: A slowly failing video card in a SLI arrangement might have been playing a role in the crashes. With this card removed, the game was stable for several hours last night. YIPPEE!


Twitter actually kind of sucks

December 6, 2009

It mainly seems to be a vehicle for spammers to “follow” me and include porn links in their emails announcing that they “follow” me. It is really kind of goofy. I predict it will sink like a stone as people realize it is really pretty useless and as the annoyance with the spammers takes hold.

Descendants of Erdrick Show: Geek event of the season for Central Texas!

December 5, 2009

I know the band that is doing this free event on Dec. 6 in Round Rock and wanted to give them a plug. They are a whole lot of fun and their game music concert is FREE!

Plug starts here:
Show this SUNDAY with Descendants of Erdrick!

BIG show on Sunday, December 6th with my very hip and dorky video game music band Descendants of Erdrick! Our 3-piece rock group specializes in songs from classic Nintendo-era games such as Super Mario Bros., Legend of Zelda, Punch-Out!!, Dragon Warrior, Final Fantasy series, Mega Man, Metroid, Ninja Gaiden, and our newest addition — Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! We are performing at Game Over Videogames in Round Rock, TX, starting at 5 pm Central. The show is FREE, all ages, and the Humane Society of Williamson County will be accepting donations for a good cause!
