Zombies and Where They Are

While playing Dead Rising 2 recently, Ken had the excellent idea of putting together an interactive map for key locations. We’ve managed to get a working version together, just remember this is very much a work in progress as we get all the interesting locations and paths in. Interactive Dead Rising 2 Map

It may be useful for the browser to obey meta tags found outside of a page head, but as far as I know they’re intended for use at the page level. This may be for backwards compatibility but it provides us some ways to disrupt other websites.

Super Street Fighter 4 - First Impressions

  • 1 min read

So we’ve only had the game a few weeks now, but for anyone that played the first one, this game takes all the great parts of SF4 and expands on it. If you’re standing there looking at it on the shelf you might think of it as overpriced DLC, in my opinion you would be quite wrong.

The BlackSwordsman, Berserk

I had not been back to The BlackSwordsman for a while which sucks. I try to manage my free time and live a balanced lifestyle, it’s not always easy. Anyways, The Blackswordsman has been part of my life for years and that’s not going to end any time soon. My original goal was to make a sort of encyclopedia for Berserk, to catalog all the strange and bizarre parts of its universe. Whatever my original intent, people just want to read and talk about Berserk, so that’s what the site became.

The Number Two Headband - Afro Samurai

This game isn’t anything new, but I finally got a chance to play it. I had never seen the animated television series or read the manga before, but always enjoy samurai stories. As opposed to all the other samurai stories I’ve read or seen movies of, this had a strange mix of hip-hop voice acting and music, cell phones, rocket launchers, robots, ronin, and ninjas… but it all came together in an interesting and entertaining way.

jQuery.noConflict() - Multiple Javascript Libraries

When working on a project we normally decide on a Javascript library and stick to it. Sometimes for one reason or another there just isn’t anything we can do and a second library needs to be introduced. If you’ve ever tried this, you know that if you’re not careful you will have a hot mess on your hands.

Graphical login

Some time last year I made this simple example of an alternative user login process. Users would still enter their username, but the “password” would be points on a map. In the example the user can navigate more or less anywhere on Earth and drop a point on the map, like a tree in their backyard, their reserved parking spot at work, etc. After correctly entering their secret locations on the map, they could log in.

Gaming - Q1 2010

For me, gaming in early 2010 has been like a mad rush. There are key titles for other systems I would probably be playing, Heavy Rain and God of War 3 for example, but I have a 360 and barely have enough time to keep up with my games as it is. Here’s a look at the past 3 months of gaming for me.

Freema Agyeman the Dalek

Apparently the DVD set of Doctor Who Season 3 contains a studio tour with Freema Agyeman. I pulled this short clip out where we’re introduced to Nick Briggs, the voice of Daleks. I had often wondered who voiced the Daleks and what a Martha Jones Dalek would sound like; this answered both of those questions.
