Goat Simulator

Tue, 04/01/2014 - 20:10 — JPNor

What started as silly Game Jam joke was actually developed into a real game. So, yeah. You play a goat and you trash the environment, and that's it. And yet it's getting insanely good reviews from gamers.

See video

From the Steam page:

KEY FEATURES:

  • You can be a goat 
  • Get points for wrecking stuff - brag to your friends that you're the alpha goat 
  • Steam Workshop support - make your own goats, levels, missions, game modes, and more! 
  • MILLIONS OF BUGS! We're only eliminating the crash-bugs, everything else is hilarious and we're keeping it 
  • In-game physics that spazz out all the time 
  • Seriously look at that goat's neck 
  • You can be a goat

 

And of course, this is released on the day I left my laptop back at the office.

Going Rogue

Sat, 03/29/2014 - 22:32 — VengefulJedi

Hey all, just wanted to drop a quick note while I'm working on this fine Saturday night. For those of you who don't know, I've decided to retire from the Geeks On The Mic podcast. Long story short, we were having creative differences & my buddy's head somehow found its way up his ass. I decided to back out while I could still call him a friend. Fortunately, this isn't the end of the line for Jedi, but more a new beginning. I'm going rogue & starting my own podcast. I've got a good bit set up already:  bought a web domain, designing the web site, and am setting up the applications I'll need. The domain I bought was expired & on auction, so it won't be fully available for the next two weeks... but I'll use that time to work out whatever bugs I can.

Also, speaking of going rogue, I've decided to remain a lone wolf & retire from the online dating scene. I have my full-time job, and my 2nd "job" (the social media thing) is starting to pick up. I'm also about to take on the Podcast, and I need to focus on my health right now - both physical & mental. Besides, I only met two real people on there - one who ultimately kept comparing me with her exes, and the other was so self-centered (and was still pushing me to go out while I was off work due to my back) that I quickly told her to go fuck herself because I'd lost any desire to. Ultimately, I'm just going to focus on me at the moment, and once all the dust settles, I'll get back on that horse.

On the plus side, when I went to the hospital for my back, I found out I'd lost about 13 pounds since I started trying to lose some of this weight.

Hennessey announces $1.25 million Venom GT World's Fastest Edition

http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2014/03/26/hennessey-announces-125-million-venom-gt-world-fastest-edition/

f you wanted to get your hands on the new special edition of the Hennessey Venom GT, you had to know the right people—most likely, John Hennessey himself. Because the new red, white, and blue World's Fastest Edition of the supercar is limited to just three units—and it’s already sold out.

At a price of $1.25 million each, that’s no small feat, but the car does hold a top speed run of 270.4 mph, and a Guinness World Record for the 0-300 km/h (0-186 mph) dash at 13.63 seconds. It owes this monstrously fast acceleration and speed to its 2,743-pound curb weight and its twin-turbo 7.0-liter V-8 engine, which is rated for 1,244 horsepower.

The top speed of 270.4 mph was set at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center this February, and the three World’s Fastest Edition cars are being built to commemorate the achievement. Painted primarily white, but with a stripe of red and blue down the middle, the special-edition car is intended to mimic the flag the team flew out of the record-setting Venom GT’s window the day of the run.

Of course, the non-World’s Fastest Edition Venom GT is just as fast as the sold-out special, so if you’ve got the itch to go 270 mph in a road-legal car, you can still order one. It won’t be one of the rarest special-edition supercars in the world, but it’ll still be one of the fastest

My mid-life crisis

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 11:04 — JPNor

I have a 2008 Honda that I'm still paying for (I started leasing, put too many miles on, and financed the residual value). I had been looking for a beater car to use part time, so that I wasn't putting so many miles on the Honda. After looking around at cars for less than $10K, I found this:

It's a 2013 Charger and slightly used (23,000 miles) but I couldn't resist. It has the smaller V6 engine but it can still move quickly, although in my town I need to drive very slowly around all the frost heaves.

Pristine 1967 Chevrolet Corvette found in garage to be auctioned

A 1967 Chevrolet Corvette with just 2,996 miles on the odometer and one of the most interesting tales to tell is going on sale at the Mecum Auctions Houston event in April.

The 427/390 hp V8-powered coupe was purchased in 1966 by 30-year-old Don McNamara of Colorado Springs, with $5,000 he won on a trip he made to Las Vegas to celebrate his retirement from the U.S. Marines.

http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2014/03/21/pristine-167-chevrolet-corvett...

 

For a few months afterwards, the very private McNamara was occasionally seen tooling around town in the distinctive white two-door with its red “stinger” stripe on the hood, but soon it disappeared and was never spotted again. That is until 2011, when McNamara passed away and left his entire estate to his neighbors, who discovered the car parked in his garage under a shipping blanket festooned with American and Marine Corps flags.

Despite telling anyone who asked that he didn’t own the car anymore, it turns out that McNamara had been secretly driving it at night, having decided not to pay the title and license renewal fees after his first year of ownership. The man who never had a credit card or checking account apparently saw this as his own personal version of pure American freedom.

 I use Twitter to discuss many different things: gaming, politics, and heavy metal. Okay, I use Twitter for three things. As a way to riase awareness about Twitter's birthday they released an app that allows you to find your very first tweet. Here's mine from March 11, 2010:

"What happened to Splinter Cell:Conviction? It was supposed to be here in February..."

I guess we know which comes first in the Jones house.

1964 Buick Riviera custom wins 2014 Ridler award

http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2014/03/11/164-buick-riviera-custom-wins-2014-ridler-award/

"A 1964 Buick Rivera built by J.F. Launier, owner of JF Kustoms in Osoyoos, British Columbia, has won the coveted Ridler Award at this year’s Detroit Autorama car show custom car show.

The vehicle, named Rivision, is a ‘64 Riv modified with the boattail style of the 1970’s version of the model.

Front fender vents, a deep chin spoiler, lowered suspension, bright yellow paint and tons of original chrome enhance the donor car’s sleek and unique style.

Under its vented hood sits a modern, 6.2-liter Chevrolet V8 with 850 horsepower courtesy of twin-turbochargers mounted way back in the rear of the car, with dual exhausts exiting between the tail lights.

Rivision is the first Canadian car to win the award since 1987, but it won’t be parked in some museum to collect dust anytime soon.

According to The Province, Launier plans to put all that power to good use and see if the car can hit 200 mph."
