So, the third line in the Microsoft Surface Pro line has finally been announced. And contrary to the rumors, It wasn't a mini version of the previous iterations.
It was actually something I thought was even better. A bigger one. Two inches, in fact.
Unfortunately, like all the other Surface Pro models, it's going to cost a pretty penny to acquire one of these beauties.
The new Surface Pro is bigger, faster, and better than ever. Notable features that really make me want one is the completely redesigned hinge that makes it completely adjustable at whatever angle you want.
Some people were quite a bit worried that the new Surface's pen wouldn't be as good as the one in the Surface Pro 1 and 2, but according tho the people who've used one, the downsides that it does have compared to the old ones are something I don't really care too much about.
Those downsides are the fact that the cursor trails a lot farther when hovering with the pen, and that the pen only has a 256 pressure sensitivity compared to the previous iterations that had a sensitivity of 1024 pressure levels.
The upside that makes that worth it however is that according to the people who've used the new Surface Pro, the pen writes EXACTLY where you press on the screen. NO RECALIBRATION NEEDED.
It's something that really bothers me with my first generation Surface Pro. That said, I really love my Surface Pro. I got it recently for about 400 bucks on eBay, and it's seriously an amazing piece of technology. The pen is AMAZING for taking notes at school.
I haven't really dedicated any time to drawing on the Surface Pro during the couple months that I've had it, but this weekend I actually decided to start drawing again after such a long time.
Drew a desert and a plant on my porch. :P
If you like drawing or really want an awesome way to take notes in class, I really suggest getting a Surface Pro. It's basically a full Windows 8 computer with both touch capabilities and pen support.
You can even play games on it. I got Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 to run on it. It's awesome!
What do you guys think? Posted on December 19, 2013 at 01:23
I just (for now) finished with a style and layout I'm satisfied with for my site. Take a look: LARGames.com
If you don't want to visit my site for whatever reason, here's an image:
I'm not gonna force you to give me pageviews. It'd be nice to have them though. :D
Although if you want to see the changes I make later, it's probably best to just visit the site. lol
So, what do you guys think? I know there's plenty of design people around here, so it'd be nice to hear some comments/ criticism about the design.
Starbound BETA! (And Dark Souls for Cheap) Posted on November 26, 2013 at 13:48
Starbound beta release is looking to be around dec 4th. Assuming arrangements go through with steam.
Also, if people build awesome stuff during the beta that the devs like, it's possible you're build could be in the final game for other people to find! With your permission, of course.
The beta contains tiers 1 - 3 for the most part, then tier X, which contains the rest of the armors/craftables/weapons, but all smooshed together in one unbalanced tier for messing around in.
The game isn't as complete as I'd like it to be for beta, but we're setting up a system where we can literally update it daily. So it should be a wild ride regardless.
Also, creations you share during beta may have a chance to make it into the final game as places other players can find.
I'm so excited! Are you?
You can pre-order Starbound here, and get access to the beta when it comes out.

Watch the Marathon! Posted on October 29, 2013 at 16:45
I have to say this is the best quality video I've ever made. Not content wise, of course. lol
I mean the actual quality of the video file. I think I've finally perfected the rendering technique to get videos almost looking like the uncompressed source files. I'm pretty proud of that. :D
Anyway here they are, may the history of our marathons be forever preserved!
Episode 1 - The Circle of Life: (First Episode)
Episodes 2 - 9 (CLICK ME!!) (Show)
Episode 2 - Stuck in a Cave:
Episode 3 - Game of Thrones is Awesome. Just Saying.:
Who here likes Dark Souls? I beat the game recently and I'd like to know who here has also played and/or beat it.
Anyway, Yeah. I bought the game for Xbox a few months ago, and I finally beat it about a month ago.
I also recently started a new game on PC. (Yeah, I bought it twice. lol) Technically I bought it 3 times since The first copy I gave to my little brother, and I had to buy a second Xbox one.
Then it went on sale on steam, and I had to have it for PC.
So, about the new game. I'm playing this new character a bit less leveled than my other one. As in, I'm not leveling him at all.
I'm trying to beat the game with a level 1 character. This is possible. Plenty of people have done it, and it is pretty fun to add a whole new level of difficulty to the game. If I recall correctly, Ferret is/ was doing the same thing, since he plays the game as well.
I've currently defeated:
The Taurus Demon
The Moonlight Butterfly
The Capra Demon
The Gaping Dragon
The Iron Golem
I've been using Reinforced Clubs for all of this, and a mix of the Pyromancer, Leather, and Hollow Warrior armors as well.
This is pretty fun. But man, dodging is important when you have so little armor and defense.
I'm currently trying to fight Ornstein and Smough. They are much, much harder than they were the first time. And they were VERY hard the first time.
