[Beta] Windows 7 beta tomorrow
The Windows 7 beta has been circulating around the internet for awhile now, but circulating illegally unless you were picked to be apart of the closed beta.

At CES 2009 last night, CEO at Microsoft, Steve Ballmer, has finally announced that the Windows 7 beta will give everyone, well, mostly everyone, a chance to partake in the beta this Friday. And when I mean "mostly everyone", I mean.. the beta is limited to the first 2.5 million people. He didn't say exactly "when" the beta will be downloadable, all he said was this Friday. I'm thinking the beta will go live at midnight PST, but then again, it's anyone's guess. Could be early morning to PM. Guess we'll have to wait and find out.

Anyways... the beta will be available in two versions, x32 and x64, which is great. The two versions will come in the form of .ISO files, rather large .ISO files I'm sure.

Well, I'm definitely going to download both versions as I'm anxious to try 'em both out.

All I need to do now is head on over to Fry's after work tomorrow, buy a new H/D and a docking bay and I'll be set.

The Windows 7 beta can be downloaded via the Official Windows website.

New Logo

As I said previously in the last post, I was planning on creating a new logo this weekend which I've finally got around doing yesterday. I thought it turned out pretty good, although I guess it can always be better.

I've a huge fan of the Xbox 360 game Lost Odyssey(one of my favorites of 2008), so I had to use an image of the Immortal, Kaim Argonar in the logo, along with Leon Kennedy of Resident Evil fame and of course Raiden from the Metal Gear Solid series. The reason I chose Raiden instead of Solid Snake is.. well, the pic of Raiden just looked cool at the time and thought it'd be best to just use him in the logo.

Also, the reason I chose Kaim and Leon as the two characters to represent the Xbox 360/Wii in the logo was because, well, I don't really have a reason other than those two are awesome. Sure, I could have used Master Chief and Mario, respectively, but those I think were obvious choices and wanted to try something different. Well, there ya have it.

What do you think, my loyal two or three readers? (lol)

Happy New Year 2009

This post is a little late, as the first day of the big 2009 is just about over, but I guess it's better late than never, as they say.

2008 was a great and historic year, from a huge and massive list of big blockbuster games(Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Grand Theft Auto IV, Gears of War 2, LittleBigPlanet, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Fallout 3, Fable 2, Lost Odyssey(not a huge game, but one of the best games I've played in awhile) to the historical 2008 Election which declared Barack Obama as the first ever black President in the history of this great nation, and other stuff that was historical in its own right.

Cutting this post a bit short, I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2008 and may your hopes and dreams be recongized. I've made a list of my 2009 New Years Resolution, and hopefully with every bit of energy I have, will accomplish all of them in this new year.

Separate note: I'm going type up a top ten list of what I think were
the best games of 2008, but it won't be a comprehensive and detailed
list, like all the gaming blogs/websites put up. Also, I'm in the
process of creating a new logo, which I'll hopefully do this weekend.
