I'm tired.

Still being lazy after Thanksgiving and Black Friday. I'm playing AoE 3, it's not that bad. I'll do something on it here soon.

But for now, it's nap time.

And since someone asked, I'm running google with brite as insurance.

Super Turbo Turkey Puncher 3!

It's Thanksgiving here in the states, so I figured in the light of the holiday, I'd load up some Turkey Puncher and have at it.

Wait, you've never heard of Super Turbo Turkey Puncher? It was developed by Nabcon. It was very popular with military and research scientists. It's no surprise that you might not know about the game, the only known arcade version was on a research center on Mars and it was lost the the station was over come by the forces of Hell.

Luckily though, someone managed to recreate a flash version You can download it here.

Alright seriously, the game was only an easter egg in Doom 3. It has the classic doom 2D fist and you punch turkeys. I just figured talking about it a bit would be a little more interesting than just saying "Happy Thanksgiving". I also drew a picture just for you guys. I hope it warms your holiday heart.

For those of you who celebrate it, have a great Thanksgiving.

New Starcraft 2 custom maps: Raynor's Party and Roachsnake.

The other day Blizzard featured two new custom map games, Raynor's Party and Roachsnake. And yes, they are exactly what they sound like. Sadly, I don't have any screenshots to go with this post. :(

Roachsnake is a snake clone. Plain and simple. Each player controls their queen and the object is to run around collecting zerglings. Each zergling you collect adds a roach to the back of your queen that follows you like a tail. If you run into your opponent's or your own tail as well as walls you die and have to recollect the zerglings you lost. Players vote on a number at the start of the game and the first player to collect the set number of roaches wins the game.

Raynor's Party is the Starcraft 2 version of Mario Party and despite how it sounds, is actually pretty fun. Each player takes turns selecting one of 8 mini games to play. The winner of each round gets a point and the person with the most at the end wins. It features mini games such as Tassadar Teaches Typing, where Tassadar says a phrase and players are required to correctly type it out or be psionic stormed to death, Lurker Rally: EXTREME where players control lurkers and run through tracks filled with hostile enemies, and my favorite, Hungry Hungry Ultralisk, where players control stalkers and are chased by a giant Ultralisk.

Both maps are very well made, and if you're a Starcraft 2 player you should really check them out.

Good lord

Don't worry this crap will be gone soon.

Edit: It was some stupid ad code that added some pretty annoying and retarded ads. Looks like it's working smooth now.

Banelings parody.

It's a Starcraft themed parody of Justin Bieber's "Baby", done by youtube's popular starcraft caster HuskyStarcraft and youtube musician KurtHugoSchneider. It's pretty funny and the music, vocals and filming are all high quality. You should check it out

I've been subscribed to Husky for a while now. He's an entertaining caster and his channel is great if you like watching high level Starcraft game play.

I usually wouldn't post a link to youtube videos, but they announced that all the revenue generated from the video would be donated to charity. So click the link, it's for a cause!

Here are both their channels, though you can find out a lot more information by reading the video description.

Over the weekend I made a few changes to the blog. I added some pages at the top for separate categories, I'll try and make it better looking eventually. But it works for now. I tried adding a few gadgets but they all sucked. I added an icon but for whatever reason the site hosting it made the transparent pixels black. Anyone know how to upload an icon into blogger?

I might end up doing something on Age of Empires 3 next week since I bought it this weekend. Did anyone else buy it? It was a promotion for Microsoft's "Steam". I don't even know what it's called, it says "Games for Windows Marketplace". Which is a dumb title.

But yeah, I'm not really motivated to write today. I had an arguement with my not girlfriend. Here's a protip, no matter how reasonable or calm you try to be, don't ever tell a girl she's doing something wrong. I'll update tomorrow or Wednesday.

After I get finished reading all your blogs, I'm going to spend the day playing Starcraft 2. I might get back into playing LotRO or some other MMO. Maybe World of Warcraft since Cataclysm is coming out soon. Or maybe get started on Age of Empires 3 or whatever popular game I feel like being able to tag this post with to get better searches.
