Welcome to my private little Kingdom here at GameSurge. Here is where
you will find the ravings of a lunatic, and some the other various things
that I have done over the past little while. I decided that this was the
best way to collect "my stuff", and since I'm the webmaster, I get what
I want. :P
So, down to business... Some of you may remember my old tripod account,
which is still up, and a small feature called "shivaJournal", which was
my site diary of my first month of existence. (Hard to believe it was
less than 6 months ago) Well, I thought I had deleted it, but I found
a copy of it, so I decided what the hell, lets entertain the masses and
put the thing up. This is a prime example of what not to do when starting
a webpage, but it's a funny read (I laughed myself sick thinking of all
the stuff I went through just to keep the page up).
I also gathered up "The Truth" articles. The first one was the infamous
"elite" site's article that really seemed to piss off Simple.Craft so
much that I got banned from their site, and by the looks of it, their
cronies sites as well.
The second article was just as good, but it came at the exact time that
I started having problems with the Blizz-Obiv server, so very few people
got to see it. Damn, it would have caused a lot of trouble as well. Mind
you, it's still pretty current, so have a read.
The rest is a collection of my stuff that is scattered around this site,
all in one place for you to read (or make fun of) and I even found copies
of my last month's worth of posts before I moved here. Heh, it's quite
entertaining, and some of the stuff I came up with is damn terrific. :)
Have fun, and send me some feedback
The Latest Updates
E3 Crystal Ball
"Hmm, who's gonna be the first victim of the evening... Ah, lets
pick on Nintendo, shall we? As you know, I have been doing a Top
Story on the E3 expo. This is the big show for all the retailers in
the industry, and a good or bad showing could make or break a manufactors
year. With the world press well represented, and thousands of retailers
and industry professionals to attend, if you have a important product
to promote, this is the place to do it. Sega will be hawking their Sega.net,
and promoting their Dreamcast rebates, and Sony will of course have the
PlayStation 2 all over the place. Even the Evil Empire, Micro$oft, will
rush out a beta unit of X-Box for everyone to admire. And Nintendo? Despite
the fact that the Video Game industry is the largest entertainment field
in the world, and the industry does BILLIONS of dollars every year, and
we are at the most important retailer's show of the year, Nintendo has
decided not to show the Dolphin or the Game Boy Advance." - April
