Steam Sale

If you haven't noticed the Sprint/Autumn Steam Sale has now started and I was very amused at this seasons website design. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page it will transition from Sprint to Autumn as well as everything being upside down the menus also work.

You could say small thing amuse small minds. I will still say that this is brillant.

Lots of good deals are likely to be had like Sleeping Dogs which is awesome and a great deal more fun than I was expecting. I'm very tempted to pick up Anit-Chamber as I have heard some good things about it.

This will be the only post I make about it but be sure to check for more awesome prices in the coming days.

Twitch and all that streaming.

Hello the small amount of you that follow my content.

If you haven't seen the every now and then message I have been streaming a few of my sessions of Hearthstone: Heros of Warcraft on Twitch.TV. This is mostly due to the limited setup to it and that for the most part I just press "Start Streaming" and it's up somewhere.

If I find the motivation I'll look into continuing my YouTube content at some point to but for the moment it appears to be hard to come by.

Chrome Update - New Tab Page

So Google's popular web browser Chrome updated on the live branch recently. Or the installation on my desktop was slow at updating as my laptop has had the change for a while but since I don't use my laptop all that much it was not all that much of an issue.

New mISings and mIPlays

So it been a little while since I've had the time to put up a video. If you missed it there was also a video of my playing the Assassin's Creed III Multiplayer. I've also just uploaded a new mISings. Both will be below but they are best viewed on my channel

mISings - Powderfinger: (Baby I Got You) On My Mind

What's this? A video? Well yes, yes it is. A video of me singing a song nonetheless.

Video Below. Enjoy, like, share and comment if you would like. I wouldn't but that me :P

mIPlays - Diablo III - Hardcore Play Through - Life Stuff

Well I've had the time to make something. Nothing fantastic just some live commentary over my playing Diablo III. It's better viewing in HD on YouTube itself though.

mIVlog - No News Week

What do you do on a week were there was nothing of interest to speak about. Make a vlog about how boring it all was.

Monday, 11 March 2013

New Channel Layout

So YouTube has this new channel layout that after messing around with the setting for a bit I do likely a lot better for the options it gives in comparison to the old layout.

You can either have a look at the screenshot below or visit the channel.

mI Gaming News - Sims, Sims, Sims.

If the gaming media had anything to say about it the sky was falling and the new Sim City was to blame for it as there was not much else to talk about across my usual sources. Also something nostalgic caught my eye in Age of Empires II HD Edition appearing on Steam and I briefly touch on Anita Sarkeesian video on Tropes vs Women. Her content makes me a little to talkative so I'll either make a write up on my thoughts about it or a video if I have the time for either.

Video below - Sources on the YouTube page.

Fan Page

Well it has now happened. I've made a Facebook Fan Page.

It's been a few minutes now and I've got a few things working such as linking it to twitter and getting the RSSGraffiti publisher running, or at least it says it's running. It has yet to push anything to the page as of yet. I should give it some time.

I've also added Cueler YouTube to display the YouTube content as if Google and Facebook would make apps that work across competing platforms.

But this should be fun.

Oh, like the fan page

mI Gaming News - EXPLOSIONS

This weeks news video is up. Included is talks about Assassin's Creed IV, The remaining parts of THQ and Shootmania Storm Open beta.

More in the video and all sources in the video's description on YouTube.

mISings - Train: Drops of Jupiter

Well mISings is up. Today's cover is Drops of Jupiter by Train. I feel it was a decent cover other then some timing issues.

Friday, 1 March 2013


So with study, work and the odd form of entertainment to keep me sane I've found little time to make a video this week. I still have topics I can do for Sunday and should be able to make some time tomorrow to fit in that vocal cover of "Drops of Jupiter", It's been a big week. I also have a vlog rant I want to make at some point to which should open a can of worms

MI Gaming News ep1

So episode one is up on this new version of this video content adventure. I would suggest to watch it via Youtube as the links to sources will be available from there. Audio for this was a little shot due to being really uncomfortable without the A/C on due to the 30 degree day.

Changes to Project 365 and Future Content

So far I've really like making videos about anything I can think of but I don't feel satisfied with the quality or entertainment of them so in the coming days I'll be looking to change the way I do my videos. What this means is that at 34 videos in a Project 365 will be coming to an end but what will be coming from that experience is something different and more focused.

Project 365 - 34 - Diablo III Gameplay Part 4

Need someone to talk to while I'm doing my Diablo III gameplay as having myself talk about me playing the game is a little stale

Project 365 - Related but no video

There will be no video again today but not because I didn't have the energy for it I just wanted to type out a little dilemma I was thinking about with recording and the public display of video game content. This came about while I was having a few frame rate issues with attempting to record some Borderlands 2.

Friday, 15 February 2013

Project 365 - 33 - More Diablo III

Did not end well. So adding Monster power does make it a challenge in the end. I'll be looking to play a new mage till Level 7 and then continue the odd video of gameplay.

Thursday, 14 February 2013

Project 365 - 32 - Vocal Cover

Today we have me stretching my vocals once again to a rendition on Downfall by Matchbox Twenty

Wednesday, 13 February 2013

No Video Today

Skipping a day as it's becoming harder to think of a worthwhile topic for each video per day. I was also going to sing something but have not had the time to or the space to fit it into the day. Maybe I'll do a few catch up videos when I can or restructure the project make a minimum of 1 video a week. That should allow me to prep more quality over quantanty.

Project 365 - 31 - Long day

Today felt really long, mostly on the part that I had a longer shift then usual for a Tuesday. Find out that I didn't get the a speaking role in Wastelander Panda project, although a little disappointment there where likely some great people that applied for it and I'm looking forward to seeing the final product for that.

Monday, 11 February 2013

Project 365 - 30 - Small Accomplishments

Yeah, big words for small things but I feel as like this a milestone of some kind. I also talk about Gas Powered Games KickStarter for Wildman which appears that it will unfortunately be not funded.

Sunday, 10 February 2013

Project 365 - 29 - Exhausting Time

Today I inform you my play style that I use when faced with common RPG's such as my issues with the desire to make Alts

Saturday, 9 February 2013

Project 365 - 28 - Current Count of 4

Proof that I would forget my head if it was not screwed on. Although sometimes I believe I wake up without it attached correctly.

Thursday, 7 February 2013

Project 365 - 27 - Diablo III part 2

I decided to drop the face camera. I feel that this was a good idea. Now you get to listen to nothing but my soothing voice.

Project 365 - 26 - First Mistake

The first mistake in any video log is to never mention a meme, if you can at all avoid it. Given the topic I wanted to talk about today makes that complete unavoidable I've made the first mistake I've shown that I am the very meaning of a SAP or Socially Awkward Penguin. This is only in situations that I have next to no context in which to form a conversation. For example what I do for work involves talking to people but it has a context or a framework I can structure a conversation from. General "Hi, how are you?" to someone that seems interesting to talk to but I have no reason to really open with "How about that weather?" The likely variables and response that can come from putting myself out there likely that are way to overwhelming for me to handle

So this is what I present you

Tuesday, 5 February 2013

Project 365 - 25 - Serious Business

I discuss my thoughts on Path of Exile, which you should play yourself. It's currently in beta so it's a little rough but it has potential. Also included is my thoughts on Diablo III, Torchlight 1 and 2 as well as why I missed a day

Project 365 - 23 - Away With the "Umm" In With the Hands

Today we have another rant. I also explain my annoyance with DST with hand waving... It's just how I talk, what about it? I also mention Big Cat Rescure

Friday, 1 February 2013

Project 365 - 22 - That Hard Place

I'm stuck in some kind of a runt recently. It involved insomnia and Street Fighter 4 as well as feeling completely exhausted for anything else.

Thursday, 31 January 2013

Project 365 - 21 - Two Thumbs Up

Seems that appears to be my thing in this video, two thumbs up. Not much else of note really

Project 365 - 20 - A Name is a Name

Today I share my issues with my own name and my thoughts on Snow White and the Huntsmen as well as Strike Suit Zero

Tuesday, 29 January 2013

Project 365 - 19 - Going Strong

So day 19... it feels like it should be more then that. This project has made me really aware of what day it is, also has they effect of making the weeks last longer. Onward! So today's video is about me noticing that a project a friend of mine I knew from TAFE was asking for Voice Actors. I've never voice acted before but I would like to think I have a range that could be handy in what they where asking for. So I've made a recording and as such though I should share.

Links to every think and the Video after the jump

Project 365 - 18 - Well... it's something

Today's video is the outcome of what happens on a public holiday when I have nothing better to do

Sunday, 27 January 2013

Project 365 - 17 - Practise, Practise, Practise

So today I wanted to do something a little more then just DoReiMe as a vocal cover. So to that end I present below me attempting to do a cover of Desires by Anberlin. I will be the first to say that vocally I am completely out of practise and over the 20min I spent getting a good recording of the cover I felt like I'm on the way to getting back into form.

Maybe one day I could sign more often or at least as much as I use to.

If my singing or the audio quality is not up to your par you can just turn the volume down and watch Six clean herself. To be fair though if I was completely terrible I'm sure the cat would want to leave, or maybe the comfort of the chair is worth attempting to ignore my voice :P

Project 365 - 16 - Windy Issues

So I made a video early to attempt to keep myself ahead as I was invited to something tonight for Australia Day. Alas due to it being a really windy day the sound quality was less then normal so I had to make one when I got home.

As timely as ever

Friday, 25 January 2013

Project 365 - 15 - I Have This Feeling...

That I forgot to do something important for this video. Oh yeah like synchronise the camera video and audio to the games video and audio. Although by the time I remember it had been two days since filming and I was already a good way through the second attempt at rendering it.

Although it does look like I know the game well enough to predict everything by at least 3-4 seconds. I'll keep a note of this for next time.

Always learning.

Project 365 - 14 - I Use to do This More Often

Sing that is. I really enjoy my memories of being part of the Victoria Children's State Choir. Learning music theory, practicing scales, singing on stage and for a collective Christmas Carols Album back in 1997 with Darrel Cotton. At the time one of my heros of the era. Overall that likely be biggest part of my life I miss the most. Being involved in music other then just the listening part.

Would really like to get involved again.

Note: Due to rendering issues with the Diablo III Gameplay I had to re-render it so it's once again late. I will be uploading it as soon as this is done

I also need a better mic before attempting to sing more :(

Project 365 - 11 - Time is Never on my Side

Well all things take time and this time it took a little longer then expected as for the video below it is not the video I intended to put up but it's a placeholder for what will now be tomorrows upload.

Tuesday, 22 January 2013

Project 365 - 11 - Sharing is Caring

This will likely be the third time I've shared the Starcraft II HOTS Opening Cinematic via some form of media now. I just like it that much.

Call me a fanboy.

Monday, 21 January 2013

Project 365 - 11 - Yabber On

Today's video is about my past dreams and future aspirations. It's like the longest talk I've done while mostly look at the camera and when not playing a game

Sunday, 20 January 2013

Project 365 - 10 - My Pants Are More Interesting

In this video despite being told by friends and the like I almost never look into the camera in this video. I'm also distracted by my keyboard being in pieces. Keyboard is now back together but the W key is still faulty :(

Well it did get a good four years of use so overall a good purchase,

Saturday, 19 January 2013

Project 365 - Skipping today

Due to mental fatigue and my lack of ability to string thoughts together worst then usual I wont be putting together a video tonight. Not really sure if that means I should put two up tomorrow as a 'punishment' for missing a day. I'm more just giving myself a breather as I've seen with most Project 365 attempts it has to fall sometimes. I was just hoping it wouldn't be this soon in to the process of it.

Alas, here we are and we'll see what tomorrow will bring.

Project 365 - 8 - linguistics prowess

Today's video is basically just a rundown on what I did today and me seeing the potential of my linguistics prowess... for lack there of as it where. Also This video feature a Monster Six at the end

Wednesday, 16 January 2013

Project 365 - 7 - A Technical Discussion

Today I discuss some issues I have with current Mobile Phone design in reference to their MicroSIM Card tray. I know this is very unlikely to make any difference but I find the only handset that had a good design in regards to using a SIM card tray was the Nokia Lumia 800 and for some reason they dropped it for the Lumia 920. In the video I rant a little on an issue I had today at work with pointy objects getting stuck in a Motorola RAZA HD.

Tuesday, 15 January 2013

Project 365 - 6 - Rain, Hail or Shine

Not feeling all to well today but I have made a video about doctors and study and a new Chris Taylor game called Wildman. This video also has an appearance of Cat Six. Some will get the pun there if they don't know it aleady

Monday, 14 January 2013

Project 365 - Review

Well video up and below

Project 365 - 4 - Better Late then Never

As with my last post... yeah that explains what I went through to event get this the way I wanted. Well all good now the video is up and it plays as it should. Attempting to fix the Audio/Video sync issues way a complete nightmare

Editing Sucks

Well I've missed a day. Mostly due to post-production. The idea was to put up a video of a game I've just got and it will go up as soon as it's done rendering. What went wrong was attempting to find a way to get the web camera footage into the game play video from FRAPS. The only way I find to do this with free software is via Blender 3D which gave me the effect I wanted but getting there was an interesting task.

Although now I know how it kind of works it should not be such a process other then waiting for Blender to render out the AVI.

I also really need to replace my keyboard as some keys are becoming a pain to key on. Such as the A and W keys TT_TT

Saturday, 12 January 2013

Project 365 - 3 - Opps

Almost didn't get time to make and post it but the end of today but the video is up. Nothing interesting I've just made it.

Friday, 11 January 2013

Project 365 - Day 2

If you enjoy a rant about the absents of LAN connectivity in a lot of current games I have made a video for you.

Although be warned I have not really thought about what I said other then I was really annoyed at a game that had a free weekend on Steam being very painful to get up an running to the point at which I gave up.

So if you enjoy someone talking while completely breaking the English Language feel free to what after the jump

Project 365 - It begins

Well I did it. It's up for all to see. Video 1 of my project to counter the title of this blog. Well see how it goes.

Wednesday, 9 January 2013

Vlog Project 365

So I have this idea and as you may expect form the title of this here blog I have issues with motivation. To counter that I want to set myself a small project as the stack of computer games I have to finish really are not interesting me at the moment and playing Assassin's Creed III after their plot point in the real world feels a little moot (I'll get to it when I feel like it but the side quest are so much more fun to do then the main storyline). I also have Darksider's II that I would like to play more of but it does get a little repetitive
