Command & Conquer (C&C) is the game that made me an RTS junkie. Playing as the GDI or the Brotherhood of NOD was so addicting, I could play for hours on end, and easily lose an entire night doing so. The game made gamers out of some of my friends that were never very "hard-core" previously. (You know who you are.) So, when I heard about Command & Conquer: The First Decade and Command & Conquer 3 I knew I had to yell it from the rooftops. These will both be great! Command & Conquer: The First Decade is already available, and it's just a great collection of C&C games from the past: all 12 previous versions to be exact in one package! And don't forget the forth-coming C&C 3! EA has announced it's planning a 2007 PC release. Long live the Brotherhood of NOD!

Linksys WRT300N: Maybe This Is Why They Call It A Draft Print E-mail

This weekend I came into some money (in the way of BestBuy Gift Cards), and decided to upgrade my network, something I've been putting off for sometime. I've been using my Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless B Router for years, with very few problems. Of late though, I've been having problems with coverage, and have been unable to connect wirelessly from across my home. I've tried upgrading the antennas to no avail, so I decided the time had come to take the leap and purchase a WRT300N router and WGC300N card for my laptop. Now almost immediately, I noticed some increased speeds when accessing the internet through a wired connection. Things were looking good! So, I loaded the latest drivers and connected the WGC300N to my laptop. It connected instantly at 270Mbps! I couldn't believe my eyes. When I moved the laptop across the house, the signal dropped dramatically (to less than 50%), but stayed connected. But then it happened. The connection dropped, and reconnecting became a sick joke. I tried for hours, and became more and more frustrated. If it would connect, it wouldn't grab an address. If it grabbed an address, it would lose range. I checked for and even reloaded the latest firmware, but nothing seemed to fix it. Evidentially, a number of Linksys customers are experiencing similar problems. Now, I realize 802.11n is still in draft form, but maybe this is why my teachers would never let me turn in my "drafts".

Now, I'm not sure what the deal is, but when I purchased Half Life 2: Episode 1 at Best Buy, I recieved an additional $10 off the already low $14.99 sales price. So, yes, I paid $4.99! Whee! It's not a very clear picture, but click on the receipt to see a larger image.

I'll admit it. I love classic games. It conjures great memories of my childhood as I think about playing coin-ops, consoles, and my favorite: PC games. Classsicgaming.cc is a well-presented, very cool tribute website to the games of yesteryear. Be sure to check out both sections of the website: Classics Reunited and Old Skool PC. Both section are killed with awesome freebies: online coin-op emulators and downloads of classic PC remakes. The freebies are limited, as the site is truly just a great walk down video game memory lane. Be sure to check it out.

[PS3] [X360]

Business Week Online posted this article this morning discussing the technological complexity of the forthcoming console from Sony Corporation, and some of the problems complexity can bring to production. The PlayStation has more parts than the Xbox 360 (which weighs in hefty at over 1700 parts); the article contends simply because of sheer numbers (of parts) alone, quantities of completed systems may be limited because of shortages of individual parts. (This is precisely what delayed the Xbox 360.) In addition, there have been the rumors of cancelled game production, citing the abnormally high development costs for such a complex system, and the calls by game manufacturers for system cost reductions. Let's hope Sony drops its price, and helps out manufacturers. I'm an Xbox guy...but competition is always good for the industry.
