I’m aiming for 500!

I found an old Windows 3.1 card game last month called 500. It’s kinda like Bridge but with different features like the Joker card, different bidding rules, and there’s Misère which is a bid in which I have to lose every single trick in order to make the bid (250 for Closing Misère, and 500 for Open Misère). Here’s a picture of the game looks like:

I somehow managed to make the bid of Open Misère and win the game against the opposing computer team in a single round. Hooray! (Of course, who knows how difficult it was programmed to be!)

This game is alright but definitely not my cup of tea. What sucks about this game is that there’s a notice that makes you wait for 10 seconds, and after playing this game for a two-week trial period I have to pay for it. I’ll have to take a look at Windows files to see if I can figure out how they limit the game.

After the game is over it gives you the results:


Play this some more and then off to something new (old). 😛

Having fun in L4D2 with some mods

My apologies for the lack of posting for the last couple days due to real life. Either way, I’ve been playing on some random servers lately in L4D2 with some people and/or bots just to test out some mods in their workshop on Steam, and so far the mods I’ve selected have seem to work except a few of them that only replace the original Tank theme music with the Castlevania Chronicles boss theme, ‘Crambone’ from Tom and Jerry, etc. Hopefully the authors who made those Tank music mods would fix them someday because every time I tried to use them but it plays the original Tank theme instead, so I’m sticking with the Cowboy Bebop Tank theme instead because that mod still works without any problems.

Unfortunately I noticed the other day that one of my favorite L4D2 mods has been removed from their workshop which is Jenny (XJ-9) from ‘My Life As A Teenage Robot’ who replaces Rochelle in-game. Here is a screenshot of what I’m talking about:

That survivor mod was created last year in the workshop, and I’m already gonna miss that mod. 🙁 Oh well, at least I have other Nickelodeon cartoon characters that replace the survivors such as the ones from ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ and ‘Jimmy Neutron’.

Playing around some TF2 with my Fwendz

Last night I decided to take a break from testing workshop mods in L4D2 and hang out with my sis Overlord Tomala and our friend Yutram for some TF2 on our own TF2 server with bots since it’s been a long time we’ve played it all together. We had a bunch of fun except that one time the enemy team kicked our butts and got the win on the final round before we could, and we were SO close to winning it too.

Hopefully we’ll do this again one of these days on my weekend, or maybe do other games like L4D2, DOOM, Serious Sam, etc. 🙂

Kermit Gets High (And Hung On The Ceiling)

Last night I was testing out some workshop mods in Left 4 Dead 2, and I took this screenshot of Kermit the Frog (a workshop mod that replaces the Hunter) getting his left hand stuck high on the ceiling:

I’d thought that was truly hilarious when that happened. 😛 I also remember watching that one part on my sis Tomala’s L4D2 live stream titled “EXTREME HOME MAKEOVER!!!!!” from last year where the Jockey got his body stuck on the ceiling after killing him using the Admin Menu because she was being ridden by him for about 20 seconds.

My first handmade TF2 cosmetic of the year

I forgot to put up something big on my blog the other day. I decided to smelt enough refined metal and junk to craft into the Grenadier’s Softcap for the Soldier so that I can use that along with the Black Box and the Battalion’s Backup to complete a Soldier item set known as The Tank Buster:

Now I’m planning on getting one of the two cosmetics from the Dr. Grordbort’s Moonman Pack item set for the Pyro. One is an spaceman’s backpack and the other is a astronaut helmet with a corn cob pipe attached to it, but we’ll find out which one I should get once I have enough junk for crafting.

Have a TF2 Screenshot of the Day

I was playing around some random community servers with bots in TF2 lately, and I took this screenshot of a dead scout who somehow got his legs stuck in something next to the stairs after he died:

Turns out I still got a lot of work to do on my latest SFM project such as the lighting, camera angling and character posing but I think I’ll wait on doing that until my weekend begins because I got two straight rounds of my nightmare shift of the week to do.

The Top Clown of the Scribblenauts Unmasked Workshop

It was announced today I was checking out the Scribblenauts Unmasked workshop on Steam, and one of my workshop items has become the most popular workshop item for today:

Yep, he totally Dan Dan Duu’d his way to the top of the first page of most popular Scribblenauts Unmasked workshop items this week. Congratulations Ronald! 😛

Some December Fun with some Tee Eff Too

Been playing around some random community servers in TF2 with random people for the last couple days and I have received shiny Gunboats for the Soldier that someone sent me as a random gift. Awesome! 😀 I also earned an achievement this evening for killing 79 enemies that have Balloonicorn pets with them while I was blowing up stuff and receiving random item drops I already turned them into metal and so far I’m up to 3 refined metal right now.

I’ll plan on doing more of this once my weekend begins since I got to get ready to go to my nightmare shift in a few minutes and then I got one more tomorrow after that, so stick around and I shall return.
