Posted in Nerd Stuff, Regular, Stuck in my Electrical World with tags , , , , on November 26, 2007 by Decoye Gheist

With the Xbox Live Update knocking on our doors at 4th dec. it came to my mind what i forgot to mention what i really wanted to have inside this update.

You know the feeling, when you know ok, now it is definatly too late to talk about stuf you want to see in the next update.

I made a list, for myself to remind me, showing me everything i want to see in the next update.

  1. Chat Pad Short cuts | i mean how awsome would it be if you had the chance to answer the message that you got via the press of a hot key, or maybe to del a message right after you have read it?
  2. Disabling notifications via dashboard in game | have you ever played Lumines Live or any other game that needed all you attention, and then someone on you Friendlist went online and all you attention is drawn to this? Or maybe you just recorded a tutorial Video how people can score 100 legit Kills in Halo3 in your way without dying and then someone got online and you got Headshot killed. Guys, if this happend once you know what i mean 🙂
  3. MultiMemberChats | come on this is possible… we all know.
  4. Video Chat | working 🙂
  5. Creating your Own Dashboard Themes | Ok, there is chit chat about “Video playback” Dashboard Themes, with sound and all that… but do you really belief this gets into for you to be edited?

The last 4 are free for your comments i will add your stuff into the list promise.

Bye bye.

New Xbox Live Arcade Titles announced for this Summer…

Posted in Nerd Stuff, Stuck in my Electrical World on April 19, 2007 by Decoye Gheist

… in an Interview with IGN today SNK USA president Ber Herman said there will be old SNK Games available on the Xbox Live Marketplace this Summer. Some of these games set for release are games which retailed for about 200$ for about 17 years ago – if this is not a hint, the damage for each should be around 800 and 1200 Microsoft Points.

Herman did not exactly told IGN, what games will be released, but he said

we are looking for games that haven’t been available

But dont be on fire, all you geeks out there, and await a KOF or a Metal Slug with leaderboards and online gaming, because he also said

so we’re looking for games that haven’t been available to be more attractive to users when we first launch. If we had a chance to bring out two games for our first month I wouldn’t want it to be King of Fighters ’94 and Metal Slug 1. That wouldn’t be the plan. We have 120 different Neo Geo titles… there’s plenty to select from.

I think, games like “Garou Mark of the Wolves”, or “Kizuna Encounter” for about 4 bucks would be nice, because these are games that really “haven´t been available”… and with a online Mode, wow, i really thought about to train my body not to need sleep anymore…

scary
Yesterday, i was writing an Artikel (Focus it is all about the Focus) about how the effect of those “Hybrid Pictures” work, i came across of even more of those pictures as i searched the internet for answers, so i thought i will show you only some.

To make the effect appear, you have to watch the picture from a close range and see how it changes when your distance to the picture increases, it is hard to say how far you need to be away from it, but 5 – 8 steps away from the monitor should be enough… Click the Pictures to view them in full size.
