Steam Widget in the Wild!

Steam Widget on WordPress.org

As I said I would last weekend, I got my new Steam Widget up on WordPress.org.  I still want to add some things like stats links and currently in-game, but I think it’s a good first release.

Also, I forgot to mention this in my last post, but it’s pretty cool still.  A German guy did a drum remix using my remastered versions of the Deus Ex UNATCO and Area 51 themes and posted them on Youtube a few months ago.  Check it out.

Snake’s Top Tens

Top Ten Games
Games I’ve played more than once because they were so kickass. If you consider yourself a serious PC Gamer, you should definitely play these. Here they are in no particular order:

  • Max Payne (first game was better than second; I must have played it like 2-3 times; bullet-time still kicks ass)
  • No One Lives Forever 2 (both games are really good, but I like the second one cause it adds skills like Deus Ex; i need to play this again)
  • Deus Ex (oh fuck, I love this game; I’ve played it 9 times!)
  • Half-Life (it’s a fucking classic; I’ve played it like 4 times; way better than HL2; has some awesome mods, like TFC)
  • Rise of Nations (logged the most time playing this than any other game; perfect execution of RTS micro-management)
  • Unreal Tournament (all iterations; my favorite platform for free-for-all killing action; great mods)
  • Dungeon Siege (nice implementation of RPG gaming for non-hardcore types; I know Marcus played this several times, I played it twice)
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (I really dig the layout and retro feel of this GTA iteration compared to the others; played it three times)
  • Doom (classic killing; shareware is addictive stress reliever)
  • Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast (a close call, but I played it so many times, I had to add it; this is the way all the Jedi Knight games should have played)

Other close calls: Quake 2, Call of Duty, and Far Cry

Top Ten Album
Albums that I keep coming back to and everyone should give a listen if they like the genre. In no particular order:

  • Cake – Fashion Nugget (nice mix of big band and alt. rock; addictive lyrics)
  • Nine Inch Nails – The Downward Spiral (you haven’t lived until you’re heard this; industrial)
  • Prodigy – Fat of the Land (more electronica-based alt. rock and some ambient)
  • Rob D – Furious Angels (instrumental rock; strings and beats)
  • Ulrich Schnauss – A Strangely Isolated Place (straight electronica)
  • Way Out West – Intensify (very techno)
  • BT – Movement in Still Life (trance/techno, with some harder and more rock-like stuff)
  • Blue States – Man Mountain (I call it chill music, but it’s probably like lounge jazz/easy listening)
  • Space – Spiders (rare eurorock/electronica; addictive lyrics)
  • Delerium – Poem (new age; lovely vocals and beats)

Feel free to disagree with me on these, but keep it to yourself.

Snake doing stuff

Doing stuff not really related to the site, but nonetheless having to do with me and making shit on the internet. I spent two hours today making a quiz at QuizFarm.com, because I guess I didn’t really have anything important to do and a person was pestering me. It’s neat, though, and filled with my raunchy humor. Find out what item on Snake’s desk you are?.

Also, a few months ago I did a remix of a lot of NIN tracks; then a couple days ago, I reworked some more of it. I was surprised that it didn’t suck too bad and that some people actually liked it, so I uploaded it to the site seeing as it now has unlimited storage. You can download it from here. I mixed parts from several different works Trent has done: Erased, Over, Out (A Remix of Eraser from Halo 8) from Halo 10; Start (Whisper) and The Quake Theme from the Quake OST; A Warm Place and The Downward Spiral from Halo 8; and Videodrones from The Lost Highway OST. Well, that’s enough about that.

Music Reviews

So, the lack of content at S–l is hurting my brain. Thus, I’ve decided to do music reviews. Maybe if I do enough of them, Snake will give me own button. I hope so. Anyways I’m going to try and do one a day. so here’s the first:

Mum- Summer Make Good

Oh, and I’ve wanted to post this for a long time:

Pics and…pics

The pics from the 1st can be found mysteriously deep in the sturture of this site, or by going here. You can read about in the journals.

Then, here’s a picture of my week’s work:

Includes portions of halo 7, 9, 10, 13, 14, and 16. I live NIN now. Start calling me Nine Inch Snake.

Here’s some news, Gandalf

I wouldn’t really warrant a week without news, maybe 4 or 5 days, but I’ll tell you what I’ve been doing. I’m working on a Deus Ex Strategy Column. Of course, no one can tell you how to play Deus, everyone takes their owns paths, but if you read over this Column before playing you’ll likely have a lot more fun playing Deus Ex. In order to write this Column correctly, I’m having to go through Deus for the 6th time, but I’m not complaining. It’s an awe-inspiring game, and if you haven’t played Deus Ex, may 100 greasals attack you in a street at night. (Better get your lightning gun ready for those greasals, Que…oh, that’s right…you don’t have Q3 either.) 😡

Besides that Column, I’m thinking about working on changing the MOD database into a Music database. Acumen once told me:

I’m more and more toward releasing only mp3 version[s] in the future. They contain better soundquality, offer more post-production features and are familiar to a bigger audience.

Well, thanks a lot Acumen, cause now I have 300 MP3s and 322 MODs. 😛
