The PS4′s game selling power

by on Sep.03, 2014, under Gaming, News and Analysis

A game that is available on every platform (excluding WiiU; including PC) has managed to sell 200k units in its first week of release. Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8 for the WiiU only managed a little more than half of those numbers in its first week with an exclusive title that has no other games to compete with.

If you’re wondering why third parties hate making a game on the WiiU always keep this in mind.

Idea time! #1

by on Jul.18, 2014, under Projects

Gather around folks it’s time for idea time! All the current ideas I have in my head or working on that haven’t been put to paper or at least blogged about on this site:

  1. Costume themed PC Cafe – Hopefully you would be able to hold eSporting events there as well as provide a unique cafe experience that will also cater towards gluten-free and vegan individuals. This is just a stepping stone to another project that has a lot of barriers. (Amusement licensing barriers)
  2. Starting my own eSports team / network. I already have the team name and site ready to go. I also have a show I wanted to create that will be a feature of the site.
  3. Developing a strategy gaming engine that will provide features similar to Final Fantasy tactics.

I will elaborate on all these ideas in different posts.

Video Game ideas – No Hockey League

by on Dec.06, 2012, under Gaming, Projects, Technology

No Hockey league:

1. Simple 3on3 hockey + goalies.
2. Offensive strategies: pass, deke, shoot
3. Defensive strategies: check, steal, block

Special player attributes:
Goalies:
1. Defender: Great on blocking the first pass but after several ricochets he’ll break down
2. Experienced: May make a few mistakes here and there. But if you’re ahead he’ll shut down the game
3. Rookie: No telling what you’ll get.

Wing:
1. Offensive: Be the first to setup the initial shot on goal. Struggles on defense
2. Defensive: Strong at passing and stealing, terrible on finesse
3. Skilled: The go to guy for scoring

Center:
Captain: The master of setting up plays. Gets into key positions automatically
Brute: Master of checking
Balanced: The guy who fills in where needed.

Multithreading and Autowired beans

by on Sep.07, 2012, under Coding, Technology, Uncategorized

Today I learned you can pass beans by reference and use them in multiple threads without running into issues. I’m not sure if this is the proper way of handling spring access to the database via multiple threads. Nonetheless, it’s much better than auto wiring each thread to become a bean.
