It is not often I find something to moan about but I am sure some people driving in cars paid for their licence and not trying to pass it.
For those that drive, I am sure you are aware on the little blinking lights that exist on your car that flash amber – these tells people such as other drivers which way you are going to turn and this also means that people who might be walking or riding a bike can also see which way you plan on turning.
So lets say you are a driver and you are planning to take a left on a road where you can keep going. You also see a person that is walking and turned around to see what you are doing. Now lets say you are wanting to go left but do not show which way you plan on going. Continue reading →
I would guess that you have quite likely at least heard of a gaming series called Metal Gear Solid and if not well there is Wikipedia for that. Against I am sure what most people think, I am not really into the online gaming thing that much but there has always been one game that I have always enjoyed playing and that was Metal Gear Online 2 for the Playstation 3.
Having been released many years ago now, Metal Gear Online was originally a fine example of how to do an online shooter based game and while it was not graphically as good as other Playstation 3 games that has been released now, it always had that little special thing about being a stealth action game and all that stuff.
Now if you never heard of Meta Gear Online, let me quickly explain. The game was basically an online “sheath based” game where you was on one team and then had to do a few thing based on what the game mode was.

One of the modes involved you using something called a stealth camo and having to get a target and take it back (although near the end, everyone just prefer killing each other in this mode), a base mission where you have to take over a certain amount of areas and well modes where you just have to kill everyone.
However the mode I did like the best on Metal Gear Online was Sneaking Mission. In this mode you play as Old Snake and you have to collect a certain amount of dog tags from soldiers while ideally not getting involved in the battle between the two different teams.
Unlike many games that exist today on the Playstation 3, Metal Gear Online also had a whole range of things that allowed you to expand your virtual soldier. These changes included many different uniforms, paint camo and many things such as different harness and although none of these actually had any effect on the game, it was a nice little touch.

The next thing it allowed was the changing of skills. This allowed you to create a solider that was, lets say, good at CQC and basically suck at everything else. Another example would be your solider become good at being able to use an SMG without little recoil but then suffering from not being able to use handgun and the likes well. A problem with this however came up as due to people moaning on Metal Gear Online that they basically was not Old Snake and wanted to be able to run faster, shoot etc and all that without the need of using skills, the creators ended up “nerfing” the skills and on top of that players kept trying to kick people for using skills like CQC Ex as they did not want to change their method of playing the game.
As good as the game may have been, just like most games on the Playstation 3 – they tend to have bugs lying around places and one of the major problems it had been simply the lack of updates. Metal Gear Online had a few major bugs which involved how the game actually worked which allowed people to easily cheat and that ultimately ended the game for many people as they was unable to play the game without someone coming along and expolting everything.

Although these problems was well documented and recorded, the developers did not seem somewhat interested in fixing them and the game went on to be buggy for ages with no one seeming to care about its development and how it was running. It was during this time more and more people started to cheat and the game basically become a field where people would just run around and cheat just so they got a higher kill ratio as for some reason, people think that is fun.
Ultimately people got bored with the game and rightfully so, they ended up leaving the game and the ones that were left was either people who was hoping the game will change or cheaters and sadly, nothing did ever change. Well until the next Metal Gear Online game, everyone will have to just remember and enjoy how good the game was before all the cheaters got involved.
â€¦ I hate people who says this. Over the last few weeks I have noticed that most people I have chatted to over some form of communication have started a chat or have during the chat asked me to guess something which is quite random and I had little in the way of knowing what the hell that person meant.
One good example is this;
Guess what I did today !
How the hell do I know and even, why the hell should I even know unless I was involved at which time you would not even be asking me anyway. Sometimes I think I am at a fair or something when people keep telling me to guess something but the problem is, it is a game I can not win. Continue reading →
I got an “interesting” e-mail today from my brother saying about something to do with what is happening in the news lately or something about education. It made me think, what the fuck. Basically, in the past you went to school and had a right to a free education and if you fucked about, you was punished.
Then someone bitches about human rights, child abuse etc and then it changed from all that to stuff like “detection” etc. Then someone moaned about that and then it changed to “time out step” which then got moaned about as it singled out children which they claimed “wasn’t right” etc. Well, seeing the Government couldn’t do anything to the children why not go to the next best thing – the parents.
