162w ago - Big Sandwich Games Design Director Tyler Sigman confirmed that Hoard arrives on PSN tomorrow, and shared details on how to train your dragon today for fans alongside a PS3 trophy list.
To quote: HOARD drops tomorrow on PSN, so it's time you start thinking about tuning up your treasure-hunting skills! Here are a few tips to help you get started on your path to becoming a great dragon and racking up some impressive scores:
• Preserve your score multiplier. You lose your score multiplier whenever you are wounded to zero health, and also whenever a thief finishes stealing from your hoard. If you want to earn Gold ratings on maps, you have to avoid losing your score multiplier too much. It's better to fly home and heal before getting wounded all the way to zero. And always keep an eye out for those sneaky burglers.
• Armor up for safety! The denizens of the realm are not friendly. Knights and archers make for challenging foes when they come in groups. While upgrading Speed and Fire Breath are sexy, improving your Armor can be key to good scores. If you find yourself constantly getting injured and sent back to your hoard, you probably need tougher scales! Having a few extra hit points means you can make mistakes and not get punished for it.
269w ago - Microsoft is suing shipping company DHL for allegedly losing 21,600 Xbox 360 consoles in a Texas train derailment, according to court documents.
In a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington in Seattle, Microsoft said it is seeking more than US$2 million in damages from DHL for two containers of Xbox 360 consoles that sustained "impact damage, wetting, pilfering and shortage" after a derailment near Duke, Texas.
The Xboxes were en route from a Microsoft office in McAllen, Texas, to Long Beach, California, for eventual delivery to Hong Kong at the time of the loss, which occurred on Oct. 13, 2007, according to court papers. Flextronics Industrial in Hong Kong was the intended recipient.
Microsoft claims that DHL has refused to compensate it for the loss, even though the delivery service "negligently breached its duties as a common carrier, handler, bailee, warehouseman, agent, or in other capabilities," according to the court papers.
DHL could not be reached for comment Friday.
Microsoft's latest console was also the center of recent controversy in Colorado, where a man was indicted on Sept. 23 for illegally reselling both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 systems.
According to the U.S. State Attorney's Office in the District...
I think I'm gonna start making a thing called Random Rant. So I guess this is the first edition of Random Rant (RR). What will I be discussing today? Well... probably about my life. We'll see where this takes us. Anyways...
Remember when I was blogging about Train Man and about how his story is really touching and all like... inspirational? Well... I still believe that. And I remember that after I watched it, I wanted to grow up and move forward and change like Train Man. Except, today I'm just realizing how much I'm NOT changing, how much I'm not moving forward. Really, it kind of makes me sad. Why? Because I know that still, I'm kind of like the old Train Man, before he started to move forward with his life. You see, I'm still between the phase of anime otaku Train Man and obtaining love Train Man. Though... I'm farther away from obtaining love... >_>
