Cartograph No Longer Works - Use Cartograph G Instead

Well, my discovery is that since the Beta 1.3 update in Minecraft, the applet Cartograph can no longer be used. This is presumably due to the changing save system to be more efficient, and since the developer of the applet is no longer active on the forums where he posted it. Alas! There is hope! The community has taken it into their own hands to create something new... something better. Well, I will argue that it isn't better, but Cartograph G does the same thing that Cartograph did. So, I will be posting a tutorial of Cartograph G shortly, but until then, just try to work on it yourself. Here's the download link:

Crysis 2 Demo Impressions

So, I've spent the past few hours trying out the Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo. There isn't a ton offered in the demo, but I am pretty satisfied with the game. This demo shows how crisp and refined the game is on levels of gameplay and graphics. One of my biggest letdowns is the seeming similarity it has to Modern Warfare 2. Everything in it is quick and frantic, much like Modern Warfare 2. In Crysis 2 however, the Nano-suit offers some new dimensions to the game such as cloaking and shields. I will state right now that Crysis will require far more skill than Modern Warfare 2 or most FPSs for that matter. This skill sadly seems to revolve around one thing: the Nano-suit. Now, this is only the demo and I'm sure that the full game will offer much more in terms of upgrades and such, so I do greatly look forward to this purchase. If you like the quick pace in Modern Warfare 2,  you will love how Crysis 2 is executed.

Killzone 3 for $50!

Once again, Newegg decides to blow the minds of people by offering the brand new game Killzone 3 for just $50. Now, Newegg actually does things like this pretty often. Sometimes even before the actual game comes out. So, if you don't have Killzone 3 yet, and are looking to buy it, buy it from the best online retailer ever:

Battlefield 3 Gameplay Footage

Despite being secretly recorded with a cell phone or something, this video is somewhat mind blowing. I find it incredible how refined Battlefield 3 is looking already. I mean, every little aspect just seems perfect. Even then, there's still months left in development. All in all, this video will make you want the game much more than you already do.


Omegle is a fun website, though mostly full of trolls. It allows you to talk with complete strangers through text or video. It will provide countless hours of useless fun, but hey, you're bored right? If you haven't checked this out yet, please do!

Battlefield 3 Gameplay Trailer

Alright, it was just released and it has me more excited than ever for the release of Battlefield 3. Some disappointing things to me are the little things that remind of Call of Duty. The dog, the people walking around... but thats just cinematics. Once it gets to gameplay, I realize that this is far superior. Please watch and enjoy!

The Beginning of the End

Well, I have finally gotten myself a job. Yep, an actual job. Of course, that means many different things. For one, I will actually be getting money. That's something that would've been nice while building my computer, but oh well; better late than never right? But it also means another thing... less time. That's the age old tradeoff of money for time, but in my case I think it will work out quite well. A new term in school is starting, and so are some other things for the blog! Keep reading!

Mojang's Next Game: Scrolls

Well, as I am a huge fan of Notch and his company, I have been following them somewhat intensely. No, not stalking them, but reading up on daily news and personal things. A very recent discovery brings to light something that we have all known about for some time. The company Mojang, which Notch is a part of, announced that they were working on a new game. Their first "try-hard" game. They kept details about it pretty secret until... well today. They finally let out that the game they are working on is called Scrolls. Beyond that and its website, I don't know a whole lot about it. This is however a brand new dimension for the company and as they have stated, they see it going either way. They have established a massive fanbase already with Minecraft, and they think that Scrolls with deter and attract different people. Really though, my only hope is that Minecraft still remains in focus for a long amount of time. Anyway, I will be following the development of Scrolls pretty closely, but for now, check out the site here:
