Youtube kills "Sort results by date"

Well, it seems that it is now impossible to sort search results by date uploaded.
Instead, you get a pared down menu of "Today, This Week, This Month, All Time."
That's it.

The fuck are you guys doing!?

Edit: Seems like they brought it back.
Least they're not totally stupid.

Still Alive is Coming to Rock Band!

Jonathan Coulton performs "Still Alive" in Rock Band from Joy Stiq on Vimeo.
For every video spam link I put on here I think, "Hey, it's probably been done all over the internets."
Then I think a little more and realize there's always someone who hasn't seen it yet.

Howl's Moving Castle Papercraft

I never had the patience to finish these things.
Amazing work by this guy though.

Dragon Shadow Spell RESUME!

So after 9 months of not touching this game I come back.
FES really stole my soul and time.
I'm done with anything Persona for a long long while.

Anyway, DSS is good to be back!
Nice to be playing a tactics game again, I always love these things.

Card Sagas Wars 3rd Trailer

What mugen was made for.
I'm pretty impressed...also his sprite gallery has an insane amount of original work on existing characters.
Liese, Maria, Celes, Sheena, etc. are all there.

Youtube killed the High Quality Video Star

All reports indicate that youtube has implemented anti bitrate hacking measures that the high quality nuts have been abusing lately.
This means no more uncompressed 200mb Team Fortress 2 videos from yours truly.
Also it means I missed out on my one chance to put up an IaMP tournament that didn't look like pure shit.
Such is life.

Frozen Grand Central

Damn I wish I went down to the city that day.

Mabinogi is a little different so far.

New random closed beta Korean MMO.
Yes roll your eyes at this crap again.
Anyway in short: Fighting is hard.
It is fairly easy for even low level monsters to fuck your shit up with the system.
Requires a lot of timing, skill spam fails massively.
Magic seems pretty low tier though, just figuring out how to deal with melee shit is hard (and good enough once you do)
I sort of wonder how a group mechanic plays out.

At the moment it's closed beta, only one town, not much to do, in fact you can say multiple people (including myself) have "beaten" the beta.
There's nothing left to do but learn to play custom music in the square.
That and egg farming.

We'll see how the full game goes.
Least it isn't monthly fees or what not, that kind of pricing model has long failed for me...I want to be able to stop a game, not be penalized for not playing it, and come back whenever I choose.
