2004.04.29 42GB for April 2004 !?!?!

I took at my weblogs just before the monthly rotation and to my surprise, the amount of data transferred from web visits has almost quadrupled from March 2004.

Take a look at this browser capture:
April 2004 Statistics

Yup, that's 42,993,473,000 bytes or 42.993 Gigabytes.

Since I've transferred to this new dedicated server in February 2004, the amount of traffic that this sees has increased dramatically. I might even run the risk of exceeding my monthly allotted transfers. *throws hand on forehead* What shall ever do?

SMALL NOTE: Morgan Webb will be appearing on Call For Help to help recommend video games for Cat's new gaming PC.

Well, tonight episode of X-Play is a repeat so ... so you probably seen these screen captures already.

Now, I've only played the DEMO version of Unreal Tournament 2004 and I love it. It's all the elements that you'll find with Halo 2 but the difference is that UT2K4 is available NOW. *smile*

2004.04.27 The Force is with Morgan Webb

I'm a fan of CSI and because I didn't watch it from the start, I've not been watching the current season while I catch up with watching the DVD releases of past episodes. I'm currently watching Season 3 (Disc 1, 2, and 3). Though I thoroughly enjoy watching the show and the investigations pique my interests, I don't think I will enjoy playing the game.

yeah... the "I'm blind without my glasses" thing is totally wearing thin, Velma. We can get you contacts, we can do things with your hair ...

... but keep the sweater -- it looks like something I would wear. Everything is sexier in orange.

Eww... Shut up and go to commercial.

2004.04.26 Suffering is not meeting M"Lo

Gah, my broadband connection cut out on me and I couldn't get this site updated when I wanted to... so I sat down a played about an hour of Final Fantasy X-2 ... yeah, I'm behind the times, but sometimes, you just don't need to rush to the stores and grab it off the shelf the first day it comes out. :)

With Marvel's The Punisher movie coming out, will a Punisher videogame come out? I only ask this because out of all the characters in comic history, I think The Punisher would make a very good game.

Response: There's already something in the works for the XBox and PS2 ... based on the comic book version -- 3rd person shooter.

2004.04.22 No bad camera angles w/ Morgan Webb

So, to avoid bad camera angles in future games, I would recommend portal visors that gives you a virtual display of your environment:

Resident Evil: The Apocalypse

  • Enhanced targeting system
  • Neural stimulation
  • Virtual display googles
  • You will feel your heart jump out

What you see is however you turn your head -- off.

Response: Ummmm.... None?

I've never played any real time strategy games and would like to get cracking. My PC is old and crappy so I'm looking for something on the Xbox. What would you recommend?

Response: Bad news... there aren't any good strategy games for the Xbox.

2004.04.06 Zulu Go!

I still want to play Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow but I have to wait till it comes out for the PS2 (unless I shell out $150.00 to get an XBox -- I'm not holding my breath). I'm looking into getting the $99.00 MSRP FFXI plus 40GB HD for the PS2.

Rainbow Six 3 Athena Sword PC 3 out of 5 stars
MLB 2005 PS2 4 out of 5 stars

Personally, I don't find sports games all that exciting -- I mean, I played NHL 2000/2001 and MLB 99/2000 (not into basketball) season-based game and after a while, I lose interest ... a few games shy of the playoffs.

Now, give me a good game of Halo or Dark Alliance II and I'm happy.

From: Naseef
I really enjoy your show. I like the host of the show. It also help when I want to buy games. But can you guys please, please, please give me Morgan's email. I am ever interested in chanting with her.

Response: Morgan isn't really into the chanting thang.
