Caine’s Arcade

April 11, 2012 1 comment

I’m not usually one for sharing videos, but this one is too awesome to pass up. It’s about an imaginitive kid getting well-deserved recognition for his efforts. My brother never did anything of this scale to my recollection, but he did some pretty imaginitive stuff, too. One thing my brother did have on this kid at that age, though, was that he could put the things he took apart back together.

The Sims 3 Legacy Challenge Scorecard Spreadsheet v2.00

April 6, 2012 8 comments

Well, it’s been forever since I updated my Sims 3 Legacy Challenge Scorecard Spreadsheet. This new version is usable with every expansion up to and including Showtime.

On the Aspiration Rewards Worksheet, I included the Young Again Potion and the Age Freezing Potion for completeness, even though I think they violate the spirit of the challenge. I did not include most of the Pets aspiration rewards because they are usable on pets only and pets are not bloodline.

Sorry it’s taken so long. The spreadsheet (.xls) can be downloaded from 4shared.

The Guild’s New Geek Anthem Tops Amazon Charts

April 3, 2012 Leave a comment

The Guild has released another original music video, this time titled I’m the One That’s Cool. At the time of this writing, is the #1 MP3 purchase on Amazon in both the pop and rock categories. The music itself is pleasant to listen to, though nothing special. It’s the lyrics, however, that make the song stand out. In an era where nerdy is becoming cool, many of us who were uncool in high school can totally identify.

This new song is one of the first offerings from Geek & Sundry, a new YouTube channel put together by Felicia Day (The GuildDragon Age: Redemption) in cooperation with other high-profile geeks such as Wil Wheaton. I’m excited — the channel seems poised to offer good content.
