The official streaming station.
16-bit hell with a Sega Genesis.
We decided to “keep it simple” this year. By “we”, I mean “me”, since we’ve been overrun by multiple full gaming rigs, multiple TVs, many new and classic consoles and hundreds of feet of wire.
We’re not really “organized”, but for now at least, you can catch a stream of some of the goings on at Kodyurem on YouTube, the channel of one of our team members.
Let us know if there’s something you’d like to see!
I finally found a Legendary Class Mod in Borderlands 2! Actually, this is the fifth Legendary Class Mod that I’ve found, but it’s the first one that my class could actually use.
It’s honestly surprising how much of a positive difference this has made. 40% faster skill usage, 41% higher damage output, much faster movement while using my skill and a whole gaggle of skill buffs. Yes. This will do nicely.
This raises so many questions. Not the least of which: what’s with the asterisks?
The Extra-Life 2017 Marathon is less than three weeks away! November 4th will mark our team, the Vidiots, fourth year of participation. In that time our team has raised over $2,000 to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Since 2008 Extra Life has raised over $30 Million for children. We welcome your donations and invite you to join our team if you’re so inclined!
We’ve got a PS4, a PS3, a small cabal of Nintendo Switches and an eager gaggle of classic 16-bit systems. We’ve got a tower of board and card games and Our Steam Link is ready to bring PC games to our TV and a proud, lonely PlayStation Vita stands united with a short-stack of Nintendo DS’s for private play. Controllers are charged and stacked like cordwood. Plentiful snacks are at hand! Caffeinated beverages are standing by!
Folks. We. Are. Ready!
“Young Ones” on IMDB
Sci-Fi/Drama, 100 Minutes, 2014
Massive, worldwide drought has resulted in the collapse of governments, economies and communities. Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon [IMDB]) lives on the farmland he worked with his father as a child, hopeful that he can convince the owners of a new pipeline to divert some of its water to his arid land.

An enormous meteorite has struck the North Atlantic. In a few hours the resulting shockwave and firestorm will scrub the Eastern seaboard and much of Europe clean. In a few more, the majority of humanity will be gone. In 11 hours the destruction will converge on Western Australia and complete the eradication of all life on Earth.
Like many others, I’ve spent more than a bit of time at Moxy’s slot machines in Borderlands 2. Once you hit a few million dollars in the game, there’s not a whole heck of a lot else to do with it. After what’s felt like thousands of pulls, I finally hit the Jackpot!
Unfortunately I munged the video of the actual win, but I got this short clip of the winning machine and the legendary gun, the Texas Striker, that dropped.
Sadly, although I was level 39, the weapon was level 30 making it fun, but not that useful. I suppose that may be looking a gift horse in the mouth, but dammit, it’s my horse now and if I wanna look, I’ll look!

One of the greatest, simplest joys in life is to be pleasantly surprised by something unexpected. A favorite meal on an ordinary day or an unexpected visit from an old friend. Or, in this case, an amazing movie that popped up from nowhere.
