A huge update to the Xbox live dashboard has been released. There are a lot of features in this one that I have been waiting wanting for a long time.
While the update is being released at 5:00 AM not everyone will receive it immediately. It can take up to four hours for a user to be prompted to receive this update, so please be patient. There is no way to speed up the process, every Xbox 360 will receive the prompt to upgrade sometime between 5:00 AM and 9:00 AM (or the next time you sign in to Xbox Live.)
So, I have recently re-installed Tribes 2. Yesterday I played a nice PUG with a bunch of other players. There were two captains that picked their team members and then the two teams went at it for about an hour. It was a pretty awesome map. I played defense most of the time, only going offense to return flags. I got quite a few nice flag returns on that one. Anyway, if you have Tribes 2 and would like to play, let me know.
If you have never seen a Tribes 2 match (or any Tribes match), you are missing out. They are pretty fun to watch compared to most games. Lots of stuff going on at any moment in a Tribes match. If you want to check one out you can download it here. It isn’t a particularly great match. Two mediocre teams battling for an uneventful rung, but interesting none the less. Should be entertaining to anyone who has never watched a Tribes match before.
Founded by Coaxke and PC Speaker during a Keystone Ice induced drunken haze in late 2004, Futuristic Sex Robotz is the one and only Gangster Nerd Rap group. Futuristic Sex Robotz dishes out the cold, hard truth with skill and creativity unlike anything the internet has seen before.
Available for download at no charge, “Hotel Coral Essex” is Futuristic Sex Robotz’s full-length Gangster Nerd Rap masterpiece. Covering topics such as LiveJournal, World of Warcraft, Lieutenant Commander Data, and Trusted Computing, respect is given to those who are deserving, while mercy is denied from those who offend our ears or threaten our technological freedom.
There is only Futuristic Sex Robotz. Accept no substitute.
Coaxke and PC Speaker were recently on a UK radio station where they played their single about the movie “Snakes on a Plane”. It was pretty good, and you can check it out here.
They also create a Halo 2 rap a while back. If you have not seen it yet, you can watch it below.
So, I decided to figure out how to create flash video files and then post them. Looks like it worked out pretty well. I am sure I will make use of this a lot in the future. For now, check out the first test file. It is a short Tribes video to try to get my friends interested in the game. Most of the footage was taken during one afternoon of playing.
