Ef You Treyarch...

Vanlandw.com Renewed

Renewed vanlandw.com for two more years so despite the lack of updates it’s not going away. Thanks for still continuing to stop by. Plan is to update soon and to fix a few of the things that don’t work eventually.

Star Fox 64 – Ranking Screen

Not counting today it looks like I’ve beaten Star Fox 64 10 times at the least. This guy must have beaten it a million times to some how get 2,599 hits. Dug out the N64 today and it was awesome.

Devil May Cry HD Collection – Total Results

Devil May Cry

Devil May Cry 2

Devil May Cry 3

The Devil May Cry HD Collection is a damn good set. Particularly DMC1 and DMC3 hold up rather well. DMC2 for some reason I have a soft heart for even though in comparison it kinda sucks. If the achievements for DMC4 didn’t suck I would have jumped right into it. After hearing good things about the DmC reboot I will be picking that up at some junction.

Call of Duty Black Ops 2 – Xbox 360 Custom Games Choose Class Issue

Activision/Treyarch please fix this issue. Looks like others are reporting similar problems. Tried system cache clear to no changes. This only happens in custom games and if I try too much movement on the screen above the entire system will freeze.

Resident Evil 4 HD

Result screen from Resident Evil 4 HD on Xbox 360. Still holds up and is a great port. One of best everybody should still spend some time with it.

RIP – Google Reader’s Demise

Vamp: You, too… Immortal? 
Raiden: No. I just don’t fear death.

When Google posted in October 2011 the removal of social features from Google Reader the writing as already on the wall. Google Reader is not immortal and did not fear death.

Last week Google posted in July 2013 they will be “powering down” (putting to death) Google Reader entirely. As a “user” of Google Reader practically daily this is a rather big deal. As a “customer” of Google Reader I guess it doesn’t matter as they offered a free service and who knows if they ever made a dime off me.

Would I pay to continue using Google Reader? Yup, being able to browse to ‘google.com/reader’ anywhere is awesome and have all the sites I frequent up to date is important to me

Would I pay for a service that does the same thing as Google Reader? Yup, being able to browse to ‘googlereaderreplacement.com’ anywhere is awesome and have all the sites I frequent up to date is important to me.

Who gives a crap about this anymore. Google blowing away a free service lots of people still use is not news anymore. The big news is what will be the googlereaderreplacement.com.

 Death Toll ♫

Madness March 2013

After my host was moved to a new platform vanlandw.com did not port over in good shape. The shame is the fix was simple and should have been performed a month ago and for that my earnest apologies.

Things have been extraordinarily busy with no signs of relenting anytime soon and in some ways the worst is still to come. I’m Alive, and in reality all is good just a lot of changes I didn’t foresee came quick and from there things just pile up.

With the site in working order there are a few things I’ve wanted to post I will get around to if anybody is still around.
