If this here is the only gaming blog you visit then I would like to treat you to something very special. However, if this isn’t the only gaming blog you visit then SHAME ON YOU and now I will have to punish you by making you watch these stupid videos all over again.

The engineer update is almost upon us and we all know what that means. I think Robert Walken put it best in this email I received from him earlier today.
Here at Valve we’ve created something of a new tradition that we do every time we start trolling TF2 fans with tidbits of information about a major new update. After delaying the daily reveals for as long as humanly possible, to generate maximum site traffic and publicity, we all get together behind Valve headquarters for a good old fashion weenie roast (using hot dogs) over the massive flames coming out of the server computer that hosted the TF2 blog before it’s glorious death by means of a billion fanatical fingers hammering the F5 key until something broke (usually the finger). So if you ever wonder why the blog is taking an eternity to load, now you know. STOP emailing me about it or I will DELETE all your backpack items!
So with that In mind I Just thought I would share with you a few tips & tricks when it comes to checking the blog for updates and hidden pages. First of all, If you don’t already have Firefox go download & install it from the Mozilla website now.
To find hidden pages more easily install the Web Developer add-on for Firefox. Then after restarting Firefox go up to the newly installed toolbar under the address bar and click on “Information” and then “Display Link Details” in the drop down menu.
This will display a yellow text box next to each link on the page allowing you to easily see any hidden links.
If you would like to be automatically notified whenever a page is updated simply install the Update Scanner add-on for Firefox. Then restart Firefox again and right click on the page you wish to check for updates on and select “Scan Page For Updates.”
This will bring up an options box where you can adjust different setting.
Then whenever the page is updated you will be notified with a small pop up box and sound effect.
I know, it’s a bad portal joke, but let’s just ignore that fact for now. So what have I been up to lately? Well, I’m currently working on a review for Splinter Cell: Convection that should be up soonish. Progress on Spire and Inferno is going nowhere at the moment because of my unfortunate decreasing interest in Team Fortress 2 and lack of time to even work on them.
I’ve also been busy working on a few other website projects lately, and I’ve been exploring possible improvements I could bring to N00bicial.com.
It turns out blogging on a regular basis is a lot harder then one might think. At least for those that have difficulty getting their thoughts together and hate everything they write. ;) Maybe in the meantime I could try to dig up some of my old custom TF2 sprays to share with you all..
It’s finally ready! Yes I know, I can hardly believe it myself. Just sat back in my chair last night and stared at it for a minute or two. Then realized I had wasted about two months of my life on this thing. So I hope you find some enjoyment in this music video / unplayable map?
So where is it? Well, I’m currently trying to upload it to YouTube and it’s telling me it will take about two hours to do so. I could try uploading it directly to the site, but that would probably take me just as long to encode and setup, and I’m feeling lazy right now. I’ll just use the extra time to finish packing up the map files I guess.
You can also now follow me on Twitter if you like. Where I’ll be trying to post regular nonsense and status updates on this and other projects of mine.
From the book of Gabe 1:6 – 1:10
A few that were foolish said to themselves “Is it not righteous that we idle externally? For thou hast life, and hats are not worthy of playing game, but ye may never find one. So should thou not save thy planet with less energy, by the idle hand of steam stats?” So it came to pass, that the wicked men sinned against Gabe almighty, and laughed and mocked him while in idleness.
Then the LORD Robin saw what they had done, and became very angry with them. And the LORD Robin said unto the idlers, Why art thou idling? And the idlers said to the LORD Robin, thy system is stupid, and improves thy game in no way. We choose to do what we will with the game that we hath bought.
Then the LORD Robin said unto the idlers “now art thou cursed from the game, when thou play thy head will be naked, and all shalt see thy shame. And all ye backpack items shall parish. A fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the game.
And the Idlers said unto the LORD Robin, Our punishment is greater than we can bear. Behold, thou hast driven us out this day from the community of thy game; and from thy face shall we hide; and we shall be fugitives and vagabonds in thy game; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth us shall slay us.
Then the Idlers went out from the presence of the LORD Robin, and dwelt in the land of Noob, on the east of Achievement Farm, and lived there all the days of their many, many, many lives, in idleness until they found a hat (again).
