I watched the live feed around the 1st hour and it was awesome.  Ed was on and talking to everyone that came into the chat room.  It felt like I was right there in his living room.  Who would of known that a Thunderstorm would be the “kill screen” 56.50 hours later.    Still with Mother Nature against him.  Record Setters claimed Ed’s action as the “Longest Attempt At A World Record Cut Short By An Act Of Nature” 

Pretty awesome stuff in my book.  Great stuff and Congratulations to Ed Heemskerk on the Qbert  World Record.

Stay Stoked!

Doomed from the start? Doom 3 BFG Announcement Trailer

Well we all know what BFG from the Original Classic Doom stands for but Doom 3 BFG might as well stand for BFD (big f-ing deal).  Time and Time again Video games are coming back from the “so called” dead and being recycled and reused to bring back some gamers of yester-years.  Is it working?  Ummm I don’t know.  Those gamers seem to have moved onto either ipad touch games or taking care of their children, mortgage, jobs, etc.  There seems to be a lull in video games right now.  So much still to play but kind of all the same old same old.  I mean if someone wanted to play Doom couldn’t they just play the original one?  I know people that still are playing it.  I must say for the time I enjoyed the first Doom.  I didn’t playing it on PC but I played it on the Sega Genesis 32x.  It worked out to be pretty fun and still gave me enough motion sickness to leave me dizzy for weeks.  Well with all that being said the Trailer for this game looks pretty damn good.  They should try and release it around Halloween or something seeing this game has more of a horror factor to it than the original one.   Will this be one your pick up?  Comment below and let me know your thoughts.  I would wait till this one hit the bargain bin IMO.

Thanks

Mini Star Wars Working Arcade machine! by Le Chuck @ BYOAC forums!

A Mad Genius! Le Chuck (he goes by in the BYOAC forums) has built a micro Star Wars. I been following this thread since Feb 2012 and watch this amazing job basically come to life over the last few months! His build is being featured on USA Today, Gizmodo and Engadget.  Great job we are so proud of you Le Chuck!   Le Chuck isn’t just a Mad Genius builder.  He shows respect to other fellow builders as well.  He ran a BYOAC awards for “best builds” in 2011.  Check out the thread here for more by Clicking Here
