NFL Week #10 Final

Since tonight's game seems like a foregone conclusion and I'm getting tired, here are the results for this week's picks. I went 8-6 while Eeyore went 10-4. Is it just me or are most games in the NFL just plain unwatchable anymore? Why has the league become so ugly? Why don't I have the NHL to fall back on now?

Instead of pondering imponderables as is my wont, I should add that I never posted the final score for last weekend. Doh! Last week I was an identical 8-6 whilst Eeyore was 7-7. Year-to-date (including both weekends), that makes me 87-57 (.604) while Eeyore is 84-60 (.583). Oh yeah, my fantasy team managed to score 100 points but still lost.

This concludes your weekly football ramblings.

UT2K4 3339 Patch Released

Epic has released the 3339 patch for Unreal Tournament 2004. Beyond Unreal has the complete changelog and a list of mirrors for the Windows version. Make sure you install this patch after you install the Editor's Choice Edition Bonus Pack. I like the fact that the artillery explosion is no longer a lame looking sprite and that the reference to "green" bases in Onslaught have been removed. I'm using the beta 3339 Linux patch (which I believe is the same as final, although the "official" final patch isn't out). I'm pleased to report that decals work properly again. Huzzah!

The Making of Half-Life 2

Gamespot posted an article on the final hours of Half-Life 2 including a confession that they knew the game would not make the September 30, 2003, shipping date many months before that. No shocker there. I've a feeling that if H-L2 is as a great a game as the original, all will be more than forgiven. The article is called "the final hours," but it really covers the whole development and the challenges along the way. Thanks Blue's News.
