Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

WOW Insider has an interview with Noor, a World of Warcraft player who is progressing through the game without resorting to killing. It can’t be much fun playing this way and his chances of reaching level 80 are slim but kudos for trying.
Back in November 2007, columnist John Himes took a look at a [...]

How To Swap Out And Upgrade A PS3 Hard Drive


Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

Sony has quietly mentioned that they are looking to release a digital TV tuner for the PS3 to give it DVR functionality.
Sounds great, but the stock hard drive is way too small for video recording. Luckily swapping hard drives is a pretty straight forward procedure.
If you’re familiar with PC hardware you’ll likely be able [...]

William Shatner pimping for Commodore


Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

After I wrote about the Commodore 64 the other day Coach Coco mentioned a piece of trivia I’d never heard. Apparently William Shatner was the spokesperson for Commodore in the 80’s.
Well Coach Coco has tracked down some footage on YouTube which is hilarious.
Watch as the Shat extols the virtues of the Commodore VIC-20, the wonder computer of the 1980’s.

Videogame pantomime - 1337 style


Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

Pantomime shares far too many similarities with interpretive dance for my liking, but if there’s anything that can make it look cool, or at the very least less sissy, it’s the steady hand of old school gaming.
Bonus points if you can name all the videogames in this. Some are quite recent.

Can you remember the Commodore 64?


Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

My first experience with computers was when my parents bought me a Commodore 64. I loved the thing. Looking back I’m not sure why.

When I got mine disk drives weren’t available yet,  so programs had to be loaded from cassette tapes, which often took hours.
Games were simplistic.
The pinnacle of its graphics were stick figures and monotone blobs that vaguely resembled worldly [...]

XBOX Live Points Converter


Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

I don’t care very much for Microsoft’s point system on XBox Live. I’d much prefer knowing the dollar value of what I’m buying so I’ve created a little tool that will convert from points to dollars and the reverse if you need to. It works with 6 differents currencies: US, Canada, Australia, [...]

Brain tinkering, prehistoric domains, and Sony being Sony


Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

Wired has an article by a man named Steven Gulie, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease. He had electrodes planted in his brain which sent through electric shocks in an attempt to treat the disease. He was awake during the surgery and gives an account of the experience. It’s a long read but very interesting. [...]

Kojima + zombies = genius?


Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

I love Hideo Kojima’s work. No other games have come close to getting me as involved as I did playing the Metal Gear Solid series.
And now he’s considering making an online game with zombies.
“The zombie idea I have is a bit different. Imagine a large town where half the inhabitants are zombies. Users would [...]
