Animating build progress on a Minecraft server

My Minecraft server is seeing some use again, and I decided to build a life size model of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I also thought it would be cool to have an animated gif of the build progress as things go. Configuring Overviewer We use Minecraft Overviewer to generate Google-maps style views of our […]

Anniversary Mario Playthrough

RevolvingDork and I celebrated our two year anniversary, and kept up our quest to play each Super Mario Brothers sidescroller straight through, in order. This year’s game was Super Mario Brothers 2 (SMB2), which came out for the NES in 1988. We played it on the Wii’s virtual console as we sadly don’t have the […]

City of Epic Promo Video

In an effort to better explain what City of Epic is, we’ve put together this informative commercial. You could even call it an infomercial! Development continues behind the scenes.

No Starcraft Until Midnight

As is often the case when one pre-orders games, I got my hands on Starcraft a little early. Unfortunately, Blizzard would have none of it: On the plus side, at midnight when the game does go live, I’ll be playing Starcraft II instead of waiting in line at Gamestop. Curiously, SCII comes with two “guest […]

Every now and then I come across something that I can’t believe someone has taken the time to write. In this case, it’s a DOS emulator for the Nintendo DS, the DSx86. As if there weren’t enough options for extending the DS (homebrew, NES emulation), one man has taken it upon himself to write a […]
