My Links!

I’ve had a few people ask about the various sites I have. While I have some links here and some there, it seems I need to have them all, everywhere. So for now, here is a complete list of the most popular ones. I will post these permanently in the About section, on every site possible, later this week.

Gears of War: Ultimate Laggy Edition

I believe the title really says it all on this case. I am sure some will argue this as always some must, but that does not make it true. It just means it does not happen to everyone.

I tried 3 different internet connections, and on each one, I got lag. That proves there is a lag issue. There are plenty of complaints about it on the Gears of War forums. I just find it so amazing that now I have Internet connections that, at minimum, are 5 times faster than what I used to play, all 3 of the previous editions, without lag. I must conclude that there are no dedicated servers for this game.

The only thing Ultimate about this edition, is that they managed to find everything bad about every previous game, and stick it into the game. The shot gun is horrendous just like it was in Gears of War 3. The sticky walls are back from Gears of War 1. The match making from Gear of War 2 has been changed but not really improved.

Now you not only have the disconnects from Gears Of War 1 that was not hosted on servers, but you get penalized 2000 points for getting disconnected. Early on, this can cause you to go back an entire level, early in the online play. It is supposed to be a quit penalty, but if you are going to implement that, you should have the console tell it whether you backed out, instead of penalizing people for getting disconnected from the BS game.

You rank does not matter either. I cannot say how many games where I saw completely lopsided teams of players level 20+ playing a team of players below level 10.

The shot guns are incredibly sad. In the original they were not perfect but now you can pop off someone’s head from 20 ft. away and miss them from 1 ft. away. It is horrible and the lancers seem to have been weakened to the point of uselessness. I know these weapons were rebalanced to offset the retro and the sawed off shotguns of Gears Of War 3, but neither of these weapons is in this game. So why use the code from that version for them? Just plain stupidity and laziness.

To top off all these issues, they have the locusts running around in orange colored helmets. From a distance they look human because the Orange is so faded it looks flesh color. In some of the maps it makes it very hard to tell friend from foe and I sit less than 5 ft. From a 32″ TV.

Speaking of maps you can’t play them all. Every game mode has different maps, so while playing competitive Team deathmatch all day, I only got to play on 6 maps. How are nearly 20 maps included, if you can’t play all of them, unless you play a game mode you don’t like?  I am supposed to play the game how I like it, not how you like, developers!

Lastly, for me the biggest issue was the lag. You cannot kill people when you are randomly teleporting at the the worst moments. Trying to run up to a wall, and stick to it, should be easy with the sticky walls. However, when you teleport past that wall, and end up being shot, that is extremely frustrating.

When forced to play like this you end up getting messages from dumbass players telling how you suck and should leave. Ummm, can you not see me lagging, duh! I was ranked in the top 2500 out of 2 million players in Gear Of War 1. I don’t suck, the game does. A game that just keeps getting you killed, due to one dumbass error after another, certainly earns the the title of Ultimate sucky edition. I played online until Level 10 yesterday, which took most of the day due to the stupid problems, with this game. That is about as much as anyone can deal with.

This is not the type of game you wanted to put out before Gears Of War 4. This is the type of game, you want to put out, when you want to end a franchise.

Sadly, this is the only reason for keeping Xbox Live, for me. I don’t play online that much, and this is one of the few games that must work for me, to pay for it.

All around Microcrap once more screwed themselves. Enjoy!

Why is the U.S. Government stealing from the American people?

This might be new news for some of you, but there are quite a few Americans that have figured this out. I am curious why they just sit back, knowing their government is reaching into their pockets and taking money, that they never plan on giving back…ever!

Now let’s be clear, I am not talking about taxes. Although between city, county, and U.S. Governments, and the tax they put on everything you buy, you are already paying the government 50% of your income every year, and then you are taxed on that again, at tax time. We all know we will never see half of our money every year, what we do not know is that besides the taxes, we also will never see the social security and Medicaid, that is taken out of our pay checks.

Well, maybe some will. But there is a growing number of people, that will never see any of that money, because the government has been putting up laws, to keep you from getting YOUR money.

Did you know if you do what most people do, then there is a chance every cent you paid in social security and Medicaid you will never, ever see or be reimbursed for. Why is that? Because the government took YOUR money and blew it on whatever they wanted to, and now they can’t pay you your money back.

You see the average person, grows up, gets a job, and begins paying taxes, social security, and Medicaid. Then if they get lucky, they find someone to start a family with. This is the normal order of events for most people. Of course, there are exceptions but we are not here to discuss the few exceptions.

If either of those parents decides to stay home with their kids and devote more time into raising those kids properly, the U.S. Government has set up laws to make sure, you can be punished for doing so. They already have the laws in place now. Obviously the next step, is going to be pulling more people into their theft trap, but let’s not go there just yet. Let’s finish talking about the parent who stays home to raise those kids.

If a parent stays home to raise their kids and becomes disabled, then they are automatically screwed out of all the social security and Medicaid they paid, before they stopped working, to raise kids. Not only are they ineligible for receiving disability, the government keeps your money forever, because you are disabled and can’t work.

If you have not worked in 10 years(staying at home raising kids is not considered work)then you cannot collect your social security or disability benefits, unless you made enough money to qualify. Chances are, most of you did not think, you had to work such and such amount of time, in order to receive your money back, when you are disabled.

Here is a picture from my most recent doctors visit(Yesterday). It clearly displays all the things wrong with my health.image

It does not take a genius to figure out I have some serious medical issues but I can’t get disability. Someone, anyone in the government explain to me, why any parent who becomes disabled while raising kids, does NOT deserve disability!

If the U.S. Government is fine with making people suffer for being a good parent, what makes anyone think they won’t be next. YOU WILL BE NEXT!

I must call my doctor back today and tell him I cannot afford to pay for the medicine he prescribed, because I cannot get back even a single cent of the money I paid into social security or Medicaid, before I became a House Husband for 22 yrs. I must be humiliated because my government robbed me of my money. I must suffer for being a good parent and raising good kids. This is the message YOUR government is sending to you.

To top off the matter, I am poor enough that I should qualify for Medicaid, but because my republican governor refused Obama care money, I don’t qualify. But yet, I am still expected to get health insurance, when I can’t afford it, because I am spending all my money, on just trying to stay alive.

I hope the raping and pillaging of the American people ends soon. I hope Americans will wake up and decide that the lying and thieving must end, if we the people are to endure.

As for me, I realize I will likely be dead before that happens. I can guarantee that, if I see my death coming because of this, I won’t go silently, I won’t go calmly, and I won’t go alone!

Please wake up people before the moment arrives, when it is too late to save our nation, and all of its future generations.

Perhaps this will inspire…

Apparently, my latest video even with music nobody has ever heard, could not inspire anyone to watch it. Perhaps this video of the newest Joe Satriani music will accomplish what I attempted to do…inspire! Enjoy!

Music Creation page is done!

Now there are videos instead of pictures, and people can learn more quickly what I am doing, to get the sounds I do. The music creation page has been one of the most popular pages at this blog for 8 yrs. now. It needed the proper attention, and I am glad I finally had the time, to update it properly.

As an added bonus, there is a small guitar solo, from my earlier days of Internet music, and a part of a forth coming song, in the second video. I hope people find use in these new videos, and feel free to ask me any questions you have, that were NOT addressed in the videos. I would like to wish everyone the best of luck in their musical journey. It truly is a journey that never ends.

Here it is…

The second and last video for my music creation page. I will move it tomorrow, to the music creation page, when I redesign that page. Oh, at the end, is part of a forth coming song. Enjoy!
