Photobucket Stopped 3rd Party Hosting

Photobucket_3rd_Party_HostingReceived an interesting email this morning from Photobucket.  It read, “We noticed that you have been using Photobucket for 3rd party hosting.  To restore you 3rd party hosted images.  Please upgrade to a Plus 500 plan.”   Have been using Photobucket since 2008 to post pictures to this very blog.  Have never had a problem.  At some point they changed their terms of service.  Not sure why they did this.  Because a lots of people uses their service to do what I do or post pictures to messages boards and Ebay.  If they are thing all this people will upgrade to get this feature back.  The thing is there is only one plan that lets you host on other websites.  That is the Plus 500 Plan costing $400.00 a year.  So, think there will be a lot of people leaving.  I plan to wait a few days to see if they change their minds.  If not will have to live with broken links on my site.  Then find another photo hosting site.

Will_Smith_Wild_Wild_WestTime again for musical throwback Thursday.  This weeks song this is Wild Wild West by Will Smith.  This was made to go a long with the movie which shares the small name, Wild Wild West.  Which stars Will Smith.  He did a lot of movies were he made a song to go a long with it.  The thing is this song was way better than the movie ever was.  You can see the music video > here or below.

Have mostly been collecting the Funko vinyls Mystery Minis.  But do own four the POP line.  Well have one more now.  Was in at the comic book store and seen that they had all kinds of new ones.  They had a section for one from games.  Then seen Geralt from The Witcher games.  Am a huge have of the third game.  So couldn’t pass it up.  Have to say the POP vinyl’s get better looking all the time.  More detail in the paint makes them so much nicer.

Outlander Video Game

Outlander_Video_GameBack in the day my brother loved to play the Sega Genesis version of the game Outlander.  When playing it we wouldn’t get every far.  It was a tough game.  All so we didn’t understand what was going on.  Well all these years later.  Thanks to emulation and save states.  Also years of gaming.  It still tough but makes senses.

If you never seen it before.  It looks like that Mad Max movie.  After looking up info on the game.  Found out was being developed as a Mad Max game. But they lost the license.  So they changed the name.  What makes this game standout.  Is there are two different game play styles.  First you are driving.  Avoiding things and shooting at the bad guys.  Then at points in the game you have to pull over.  Then the game switches to on foot.  Where you beat up/shoot the bad guys to get supplies.  However at any time you can pull over.  It is you just might not get enough supplies. It is any interesting game.  Just every repetitive.

POLYMEGA

POLYMEGABack in February (2017) learned about a cool new device that would let you play your classic video games on new TV’s.  It was called RetroBlox.  They have since changed their name to POLYMEGA.   There are all kinds of devices that do this does. What makes this one standout.  It doesn’t emulate the games.  It reads them like the original machines do.  The other big differences is the modules.  Which they call Element Modules.  The base unit has a optical disc drive.  Which you can play PlayStation one, TurboGrafx-CD, Sega Cd and Neo Geo CD games.  On the base unit you place the modules.  There are ones for NES, SNES, Genesis and TurboGrafx-16.  You can use the controller that comes with it.  Or you can plug in your classic controllers that go along with ever module you using.

There is know news on a price point for the base your modules yet or when it will be out.  It does look and sound pretty cool.  Don’t think it for everyone. But if you are into colleting retro games or have some games you would like to play again.  It could be a great option.

The_Walking_Dead_Volume_28_A_Certain_DoomAll ready made a post about the next The Walking Dead trade paperback, back in May (2017).  In that post guessed that the next volume, 28, would be out some time in September.  Now that I have finished reading Volume 27: The Whisperer War.  Decided to look to see if there was any new info out.  Turns out there is.  The next is, Volume 28: A Certain Doom.   Both Amazon.ca and Indigo.ca have it listed a release date of October 3, 2017.  So added it to my list.
