Although Kim Jong-Il was a baller, it just wasn’t enough. Shawn Bradley hit a half-court three pointer with :01 left to win the game. (Yes, the arcade version of NBA Jam absolutely cheated!)
Over the course of 2014, I have been playing the original Age of Empires (plus Rise of Rome expansion!).
This is an official announcement that I have, as of tonight, defeated all the campaigns on Hardest difficulty.
A handful of the maps were quite memorable because they were so tough, but some were surprisingly easy. (“Easy” meaning I had to restart at most once.) The penultimate scenario in “Enemies of Rome” was a worthy challenge, although it was short and only took a couple restarts. The final map was, sadly, a relative laugher. Maybe I deserved a cakewalk for the final night.
Kudos to the campaign designers for thinking up enough unique challenges to keep the campaigns interesting.
Clearly, there’s no way my mid-30’s self could do decently in multiplayer, though. Muttering “macro, macro, macro, upgrade, upgrade, upgrade” after a fight indicates my poor ability to multi-task.
Does this mean moving on to Age of Empires 2? You bet!
The best thing is that drinking on the job is a requirement (engrish.com is the best)!
Everything Eggs vs Humans related is going to be posted to eggsvshumans.com. Has its own blog and everything!
I’ll leave LEP to its own devices, and not be lazy about posting silly stories hopefully.
The 90’s fighting game Shaq-Fu has been a punchline for decades. The hatred and derision reached such a passion, a website was dedicated to tracking down and eliminating all copies of the game.
But now, Shaq and some new developers want a second crack at it. They’ve already raised over $50,000 in one day and are targeting $450,000!
For a mere $15 donation, you’ll get the game. At $150, you’ll get to do a voiceover with your name in the credits! How can you resist?
So I found a programming blog where the writer indicated he needed to convert DateTime to ticks and vice versa. (This is in C#.)
He presents this:
public static long ConvertDateTimeToTicks( DateTime dtInput)
long ticks = 0;
public static DateTime ConvertTicksToDateTime( long lticks)
DateTime dtresult = new DateTime(lticks);
Why write a separate function for these as an example? It’s right there in .NET (unless he was supposed to wrap the functionality, and copypasta’d for convenience).
