TwineYesterday I was reading this article over at Gamespot.com called Power to the People: The Text Adventures of Twine.  It is a very good read.  Talks about how a text adventure can be a game.  What got me the most is that any one can make one for free with the the program called Twine.   It is kind of like and web based choose your own adventure book.  Growing up we had a bunch of these book.   After watching the videos on how to use the program (you can see them here or below) it is a simple but very powerful program.  You are only limited by your imagination.  Going to give this a try.  Looks like it would be fun.   If it turns out ok or not will post it for sure.  If you want to see what a finished product looks like check out this link.  This is the one they use as an example in the GameSpot article.  Below are the videos on how to use the program.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 Beta

bad company 2 I got into the PS3 beta for Battlefield Bad Company 2GameSpot.com is giving 65,000 keys out.  Download it and installed.  When I went and tried to play it asked for a password.  Had know idea what it would be or how to get it.   I looked back on GameSpot’s website it said it was open to U.S. residents only.  I was like, “shit”.  Then I got thinking may be my Battlefield Heroes password would work, it did.

So far I have tried 1 and a half rounds.  From what I have tried the map is huge, there is a lot going on and it looks great.   Like most online fps games I play I die a lot and have know idea were I got shot from.  I did manage to get a total of 8 kills. LOL.  All so like most online game you can hear the people with head sets yelling and bitching.  That can be funny but most of the just plain annoying.
