Gaming FOOL!!!

       *Nuttin but a "G" thang bay bay!!!!  Of course datt "G" is for GAMING!  Shout out to my CLAN "H.O.G.!, sup homies!...  Good of you to show up... just drop me a line or give me shit as you do!...  So, dig the name of my Blog... HOG|BLOG <-- lol..

*BIOGRAPHY of a GAMER!

      I've been GAMING (Arcade-Console-PC) since the 70's, yah I'm oldschool and though I'm peeking @ my late 30's I don't intend on slowing down...  Average Advance PC Gamers are in their 30s to 40s due largely to the amount of knowledge needed and the actual finance to carry the hobby... yah, there's the up and comming gamers (teens up to 20s) but what is considered an Advance PC GAMER!?  A person with a PC that games?, well sure but your reading about an Advance Gamer that not only games, but knows the ins and outs of the architecture...  

      In general, Gaming is one's interaction across a platform simulating actual conditions to achieve a goal/objective/satisfaction... An AG is a person that understands the requirements, the total process and has the knowledge to tweek or optimize the performance of that experience...  AG's MOD their PCs towards a specific element of gaming often utilizing the more modern methods to improve performance achieving the ultimate gaming architecture...  An AG's motivation is simply "To achieve maximum performance in the experience of GAMING!"...

UPDATED: 08/22/2008

      So what else is there besides the obvious lust for bigger & better hardware to run HIGH END games?  Well, developers like Crytek, Ubisoft and many others are developing the next big thing, REALISM in modern gaming... not the "shoot the screen and you get hurt" realism but the next best thing...

  • Explosions that cause dust and collateral debris
  • Characters with complex, jointed geometries for more life-like motion and interaction
  • Spectacular new weapons with incredible effects
  • Cloth that drapes and tears naturally
  • Dense smoke & fog that billow around objects in motion ext best thing, the feel of it...

Download is now available for the 8-9-200 series Nvidia Cards... yah, download mines on it's eve and Man, I'm just in PhysX heaven!...

UPDATED Results:  After several days playing online w/ the new PhysX extension, I've come to realize just how much frame loss I was getting from online FPS!, propably due to all the extra features added to the GPU...  I removed all the drivers 177.38/89 but will be reinstalling the 177.89 version soon!  *Just no more physX unless it's exclusively FPS SP...

Call Of Duty 4

Yah, I'm on it but I'm also Gaming Gears Of War PC (GOW) & Crysis hard so I really can't get a grip of which game to stay focussed on....  Finished BIOSHOCK and stop playing SOF3 Payback...  My all time PC favorites are Counter Strike, HL, Elite Force, FAR CRY & SOF2 Double Helix which I still play with my clan HOG...  My main thing is "FUN", and I do like them all so I stay with all of them for now... until I start sucking at one of them than I'll slowly stop playing it...

HOG COD4 CLAN!

HOG CLAN! http://hogclan.net

      *What can I say, H.O.G. or House Of Grief!, has been my family online for gaming for over 4 yrs now!  We've been through allot, I've made allot of good friends and had no problems with anybody...  I make it a point to educate my CLAN and learn from them as well, everything and anything revolving around Gadgets | PC HARD/SOFT | INTERNET | NETWORKING and anything TECHNOLOGY...  yah, all these things are closely related to GAMING...  and to be an Advance Gamer, you have to be well rounded in each category...  well there's more than that but I'll follow that up in a different topic...
