Left 4 Demo: A Short Review Of The Left 4 Dead Demo

Today, I spent my money on my usual daily shenanigans. But, today was more of a special day if you’re a Steam member. The slightly awaited Left 4 Dead 2 demo came out. If you never played the first Left 4 Dead the storyline is four survivors trying to escape a zombie apocalypse which just about sounds like any other zombie game to most gamers. I still like playing it.

My impression of L4D2 is that it’s good in my view. The graphics look better than the first L4D. They added a few game plays and new weapons. In the demo, you get to play a two-stage campaign called The Parish. You get the typical zombie with the “special infected” plus some new special infected added.

It’s very jam packed with action just about every step you take in the game. Even when they difficulty was on Normal, it felt like it was on Expert. The demo is only $49.99 but you can save 10% off and pay $44.99. It’s well worth the price.

What Are Your Thoughts On The New Macs?

Posted via email from Outsanity's Postsanity

A Personal Review Of The New Macs

So, on October 10th, 2009, Apple came out with brand spanking new Macs. They made updates to the iMacs, Mac Mini, MacBook, the mouse and remote. Here's my impressions of what I seen on the Apple website.

The new iMacs: I must say, I'm rather impressed by the new design. I love that it has 4 USB ports and now an SD card slot just below the SuperDrive. They now come in 21.5 and 27 inches for a bigger display for watching your HD content. Sadly, no Blu-Ray but if it was added, it would really make the new iMac worth playing movies on it. I don't think I care much for a 27 inch screen or the fact it now has a LED-backlit display. Sounds like a pain in the ass should it ever go out. 21.5 inches should be no bigger than a 20 inch iMac like the one I got. If I had the money, I would get one tricked out but just the 21.5" one. 27" is just too much for myself.

The Mac Mini: Still the same price with more memory and a quicker processor. The new thing is a "special version" of the Mac Mini with Snow Leopard Server installed. Now, a Mac Mini would be perfect for the person who wants a Mac but can't afford the higher priced models. Now, if this is as powerful as they say, you could just make it your Windows machine via BootCamp if you already have a Mac. I would do that since I already have my iMac.

The new MacBook: Pretty much it's the all white MacBook but with a new unibody design. It has more rounded corners, which look better than the older model. The built in 7 hour battery is a slight turn off for me. If I were to have one to use, I don't want to waste the battery if I'm in a stable place. I would use the power cord but the battery is built in so that means that I'm stuck to either risk killing my battery's life via the power cord or just using the battery as the main source. I can tell you now that most of my battery ran electronics tend to never be the best after a short while for some reason. Like the new iMac it has the LED-backlit display and now has the multi-touch trackpad. My only tiny issue is why not offer black again? Or, why not make the body the same as the MacBook Pros? By the way... Do anyone still use ethernet adaptors? They could had put maybe an SD card slit there or something. But, that's me and my thinking.

Magic Mouse and the new Apple Remote: Here are the final two that I have to be honest and say that I hate. I know I haven't touched either one but something about them throws me off to hate them. First, the Magic Mouse. it's wireless and comes standard with all new Macs but I think this mouse is the worse next to the Mighty Mouse itself. Looks like it's way too much work just to click and scroll. I'm used to the physical actions of a 2 button mouse and a scroll wheel. The new Apple Remote... Just ugly. I commend them for making it look like a scroll wheel iPod Nano but I'm sure you have to press buttons. I will say that if the wheel pard was an actual scroll wheel to control the volume or something, I would be impressed. The mouse cost about 70 bucks while the remote goes for around 20. The remote shouldn't even cost that much and as for the Magic Mouse, you could save that money and just get a Wacom Bamboo Touch.

So far, that's my honest thoughts of the new mac stuff. If you agree or disagree, feel free to post a comment below.

Hey Nintendo...

You know, I kinda dig the fact I can upload my DSi photos to Facebook but, something seems missing to me. At some point, I would like to see maybe a Twitter DSi Ware that can also upload DSi photos to TwitPic. That would be nice to have I think. Another thing is that you have all the classic games in the Virtual Console. I say make one that will let us download Gameboy and Gameboy Advance games on the DSi.

Oh! And how about some sort of kit so people can make their own DSi Ware? Just a thought.

If you never encountered this strange error in your Mac's Terminal app, then you're lucky. I, sadly, had made friends with this error gibberish sometime last month. I admit that I only use Terminal to make it talk and say swear words (example here). Yesterday, I figured that if there's no way to find the answer, Google would find one. Boy, did it ever. One of the more reliable links on the Google search was to a post on the Apple forums. Skimming for anything that looked like a solution, someone posted a link saying "more help here". Clicking on it, it went to a site that explains what's causing it. And just what was causing the error? Two Google Talk plugins in the QuickTime folder.


It is coming from the Google Talk's virtual video devices (but it's probably not actually causing any trouble directly - see below) - which are installed here:
/Library/QuickTime/Google Camera Adapter 0.component

And the MacCam related functions are in these two files:
/Library/QuickTime/Google Camera Adapter 0.component/Contents/MacOS/Google Camera Adapter 0
Run strings on it (
strings "/Library/QuickTime/Google Camera Adapter 0.component/Contents/MacOS/Google Camera Adapter 0" | grep -i magiccam) and you get:

Anyway it's not actually harmful and generally if you've a problem this is unlikely to be the cause of it. You can just [re]move the files as necessary to get rid the messages though your problem may well be somewhere else but at least you can eliminate it as a possible cause.

My Thought On: Gang Activity In Chicago((Outsanity, thought, Chicago, gang, activity, rant))

Giving Chicago so many millions for after school programs will NOT get rid of the gang activity that's been going on. Quit masking the problem. How about doing some cleaning up in Chicago? Like the removal of all gang activity? Or, maybe a gun check on some of these shops? All this shit happening makes me just about embarrassed to even live in Chicago. Plus, with it happening in my own area, I barely go out anymore in fear of a bullet hitting me or anyone else who don't deserve such a stupid action.
