Just a random guy with a passion for video games and music. If you want to contact me, I'm on Xfire and Steam often enough. If you want a custom header, background or avatar (or all three!) for personal use or for your group(s), let me know ;) Space and words of all sorts will fill this space, never to be seen again. On top of that I am going to update my profile so that you cannot see these words. Instead, a cool looking picture shall go on top with some html links for various sites of mine. I still have five hundred characters to go. Drat. Whilst writing that I lessened the character amount. I now have three hundred and sixty one. Wow, that actually worked. But it doesn't matter, because you will never see this again. Well, maybe if you're lucky you will, but I'm not so sure. Anyway, I'm going to attempt to. I need to max out the text. Horribly annoying at times, let me tell you. Still quite a few characters to go, but only in the double digits. Fortunately that ate a bit up. Single.

A couple weeks ago I talked about Dead Island, an up and coming zombie FPS. Moddb.com

Well, today we're talking about The Glitch Mob. The Glitch Mob rates among the best of the best for electronic/dubstep. Some of their work include profanity which I don't care for, so I tend to stay away from those songs. They do have, one stellar piece of work called, Drive it Like you Stole It.

Particularly amazing because of the slow, heavy bass, which increases in tempo about half way through, this song has also been remixed by Go Periscope (I'll be doing a YoN blog on them in the future) and while the lyrics seem to overshadow the rest of the song itself, it is nonetheless an amazing remix.

So, what do you think? Yay, or nay?

Yay or Nay?

Arcones Blog 0 comments

So from now on, I'll be doing "Yay or Nay?" blogs for just about anything. Video games, music, latest Apple products, etc. I'll post a link to the site, say my two cents, and you all can pitch in with your four cents.

Upcoming YoN's:
The Glitch Mob
iPad 2
Daft Punk

I've already done a YoN on Dead Island. Check it out in my blog section!

I saw this trailer the other day. A zombie shooter trailer. Woo hoo, I commented enthusiastically, Another Zombie shooter. But as I watched the trailer, I realized it wasn't just another zombie fix, it was different. What do you think? Yay, or nay?


Personally, I think it's a unique twist to the standard shoot-'em-up zombie FPS' out there. If it amounts to something, I hope it's because of the storyline, and not because we zombie fanatics bought it to shoot zombies. Heck, that's what Left 4 Dead 2 is for!

Music anyone?

Seriously, favorite genres, artists, albums, etc. Show the comments some love and tell 'em what music you like. I personally enjoy electronic music (techno, dance, hardcore included).

Some of my favorite artists are Go Periscope, Daft Punk, Glitch Mob and others.

And no, it doesn't have to be electronic.

Mandalorians by nature are rather loners. You might see them as bounty hunters, or mercenaries, or even guards, but you rarely see them as Jedi. Jedi, or Jetiise as we Mando's call them, have never been on very good terms with Mando's, but there are those of us who have been able to jump that gap. Those few Mando'ad are very powerful, combining the raw fighting ability of a Mando, with the strength and power of a Jetiise.

Yet the power must not get to our heads, or else, we may turn from the Jetiise and become Sith. A Sith (Darjetiise) Mando is terrible as that power and fighting ability are used for corrupt purposes. Although this combo is very powerful, we know from past knowledge that their power ultimately destroys them. The Force cannot allow something that sinister to remain forever and sometimes uses we Jetiise to accomplish it's means.

We Mando Jetiise must take a stance. A stance to protect the Order as well as others from the corruption of the Sith.

Dark Tunnels

This was a run-around/eye-candy map that I created a while back, and continually developed until recently. What changed was a decision to not only start a Indie Game dev Studio, but to turn DT into a full game. The plotline, as well as concept menus are completed. To top it off, cork279 has been making some fabulous ST's for DT that have really turned out phenomenal.

2nd: Moddb.com

3rd: Moddb.com

What do you think?


AES has recently had the help of cork279 in the construction of logos (actually it was all cork :P) so without further ado you can check out his work here: AES Logos

So what do you think? Voting is going on over at the PAS forum. Please vote and tell us which logo is your favorite!

AES recently changed over from Arc Studios, due to another company that used the same name. Personally, I believe it's an improvement! Not only does it make sense, but the acronym AES looks good as well (instead of AS).

AES is working with the Platinum Arts Sandbox Engine (PAS; which can be found on Moddb) and is developing three games. Dark Tunnels (name subject to change), Mini-Games, and a project in it's infant stage which will be based off the world wide acclaimed series of Redwall. Hopefully AES will be able to accomplish creating a persistent, 3D rendition of the popular world of Mossflower (the location for Redwall). The world itself will include iconic locations and vistas, like Redwall, Salamandastron, various Shrew and Otter homes as well as multiple castles of villians from several of the Redwall books.

Prepare yourselves for a world of adventure, excitement, and exploration!

Apparently, there's a blog... very interesting! I suppose I'll have to use this at some point... I'll be around for the long haul so you may (or may not) see some sort of modding come from me. Call me Arc, if you want. Most people do. You might see me playing a Half-Life 2 mod or something else, but I'm also a big Left 4 Dead 2 fan so maybe not.

Fun things may happen here so stick around!
