Gaming Gaming Gaming

So I realized I have never posted anything on here about my gaming habits. Gaming is a huge part of my life its probably a bit higher than programming even. I am VERY partial to PC gaming, consoles are ok.. but I just look at them as underpowered PC’s :P. Plus its nice being able to install my copy of Homeworld and play it 13 years later without issue. Anyway I figure I will start to post some of my thoughts on games I am currently playing, and maybe some other tidbits from my collection.

My collection

Ill have to get some pictures up.. but I love collecting PC games, old and new. Currently my Steam account sits at just under 800 games, and my physical copy count sits at about 600 or so. I have most popular games that were released for the PC and quite a few obscure ones. I wont lie I haven’t played them all, last time I calculated I have played about a third of them. Once I get my spreadsheet up to date Ill post it on here.

Games Im currently playing

Right now Im switching between a few games, Dungeon Defenders, Battlefield 3, and Team Fortress 2. The Halloween events in TF2, and Dungeon Defenders are great I love when games include things going on in the real world, such as holidays.

Another Android live wallpaper, Forest Scene

The idea is *heavily* inspired by a JS1K demo submission that was done by @daisyowl.  I just thought the demo was so cool it was begging to be a live wallpaper. I plan on adding more features such as clouds/different seasons etc. Heres a link to the source if anyones interested, https://github.com/loktar00/Android-Forest-LWP and heres the link to it on the app market, https://market.android.com/details?id=com.loktar.forestscenes&feature=search_result

Android Live Wallpaper Guts and Goo

Just released my second live wallpaper, Guts and Goo

Guts and Goo

Used libgdx along with the libgdx live wallpaper backend. Was a fun project, found out about an awesome filter library while making it, its what allowed for such great high res nasty images.

The hardest thing besides a bit of OpenGL I had to learn was the Android preferences. I dont know why but I have such a hard time getting them working right. So right now the only option is to pick different images to mess with. I plan on adding more later. I also plan on releasing a “lite” version which only includes one background to choose.

jQuery Snowfall 1.5 update now with snow buildup!

Check out the new version here, with the ability to add images to snowflakes!

Repo on Github
Download Jquery Snowfall 1.5
View the plugin in action

Added snow buildup to the plugin, so now you can pass a jquery selector in the collection option and the snow will collect on top of all the elements matched. It uses the canvas tag so the snow wont collect in IE8 or lower. Read More
