FEATURED VOXPOP danielrbischoff
Peace in the Era of Call of Duty
By danielrbischoff
Posted on 04/15/14
In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Since we haven't had any Vox Pop entries for a while, why not take the time to share what I've been doing these past few months now that I've assembled my PC rig. Being that Jessica is a tech expert (a part of the reason why I call her Tali), I asked for her assistance and advice in putting together the beast, and now I can pretty much throw anything at it on Ultra High settings without any problems. The only thing I can possibly do is add a little more RAM and another GeForce graphics card, but I'll wait until I actually need them.

Most of what I've been doing is modding, thanks to Steam Workshop and Nexus Mods. I've always meant to replay Skyrim and Fallout: New Vegas, if just to finally finish the main storylines without getting sidetracked, so why not do it with some helpful mods? So far, I've added Mass Effect characters to Civilization V. I've added a heap of better textures and foliage to Skyrim, including a mod that introduces pouches and carrying cases for additional inventory weight.

The best mod I've experienced so far has to be Nevada Skies for Fallout: New Vegas. I ultimately had to turn it off due to freezing issues, but the few days I left the mod on transformed the game. On the outset, it doesn't seem like it would change much of anything apart from adding a few optional weather effects and some decent sky textures. At night, though, the Mojave Wasteland becomes smothered in darkness, with but a handful of lit windows and streetlamps guiding the way.

Not only does it provide a welcome creep factor to travelling at night (like one instance where I met two deathclaws, oh ****!), but it also makes the city of New Vegas that much more coveted. It's always a wonder why everyone is so enamored by a place that tends to rob people of their caps. But at night, it becomes a beacon of hope in the distance, a guiding star to help travellers and brahmin merchants return home safely. Nevada Skies becomes not just a mod for realism, but for elevating the context of the storyworld.

Currently, I'm experimenting with romance options in Dragon Age: Origins with Equal Love, that allows for gay and lesbian relationships, and Polygamy, which allows your character to woo anyone and everyone in the game without all those jealousy issues (which is really just a time-saver so that I don't have to play multiple times for multiple romances). Anything that prepares me in time for Inquisition is well worth it.

What is the best mod you've experienced so far? Any you recommend?

Why M.U.G.E.N. 1.0+ Rocks!
Posted on Monday, November 19 2012 @ 14:28:02 Eastern

This member blog post was promoted to the GameRevolution homepage.


I thought everyone in the GR community was on hiatus, playing their Halos, Assassin's Creeds, and Call of Dutys, but it seems there was also a glitch on the blogs (which affected me at least). Either way, I've decided to write a Vox Pop of my own to get things rolling again. That's right, Nick Tan has ninja'd the Vox Pop. I'll just give myself that prize, bwahaha. (Just kidding.)

Anyway, I won't blame you if the first thing you think of when you hear "Mugen" is Samurai Champloo. Your heart is in the right place.

M.U.G.E.N. is actually a freeware PC fighting game simulator where you can combine all of the 2D fighters together in one happy, fistful, belligerent family. I've spoken about this amazing piece of software before, and I've had M.U.G.E.N. on my computer for several years. But it wasn't until now (oh, how I blame myself) that I realized that there was an HD upgrade called M.U.G.E.N. 1.0+.

So I downloaded the new M.U.G.E.N., recalibrated the system, crossed the streams, and now I can have Wolverine from Marvel vs. Capcom face off against Ryu from Street Fighter II HD Remix with lifebars from Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter.

Or how about Glacius from Killer Instinct versus a 2D version of Captain Falcon fighting on Guile's iconic stage? I can even add in Scorpion and Sub-Zero, just for Anthony. Or perhaps, just for Daniel, have Crash Bandicott get double teamed by.... well anyone, because he deserves it.

If you're interested in the wonder of M.U.G.E.N. 1.0+, you can find info at Mugen Fighters Guild or other Mugen sites. There's plenty of information out there, though it can be a little tricky to understand where to place things and how to modify the text files at first. Still, it's worth it. Oh, is it worth it.
