Topics I've Started
Posted 27 Jul 2014I've been recording my own music for a while, and most of what I've published online are karaoke-like parody tracks, like HLF's own server transfer song to celebrate us users finally getting total ownership of the site:
I just recorded a cover of Dolly Parton's Jolene with speed reduced by 25.9% (Like a 45 RPM vinyl played at 33. For once, no parody lyrics. I figured what's the use of sharing songs about private jokes only a fraction of people will understand?
Requests welcome, but prepare to be ignored.
EDIT: as a bonus, here's a picture of my (very temporary) "recording studio" I used for Jolene.
Posted 23 Jul 2014Yes the rumours were true! Valve was bought by EA this morning, in a...wait. That's not right...
No, what I meant to write is that Valve's (in)famous Steam controller project had shown yet another stage of evolution. When it was first revealed, it looked like nothing we'd seen before, later on it lost a touchscreen and received a more conservative face button placement. The outrageousness of its design is eroding further today, as its latest iteration touts a conventional thumbstick! gasp!
But fear not, the controller trademark twin thumbtrackpads are still there. Cynics will say Valve SOLD OUT! Faithful goers to the church of Gaben will applaud the compromise. Realists will wait for the final consumer release and see.
Posted 18 Jul 2014Valve's impact record when it comes to customer support has always been on the light side, now several Steam partners have voiced their disappointment and concern regarding Valve's policies (or lack thereof) when it comes to formal bug hunting and general data safety. Some blame Valve's flat structure disincentivising employees from doing non-creative security work and never coming up with an open and company-wide policy regarding security.
Valve have since responded and taken the first step towards betterment with a security webpage.
Posted 3 Jul 2014It seems valve doesn't wait for HLFallout to make noteworthy news!
Operation Breakout adds six free new community-created maps to play in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, and for the richest of you willing to spend a whopping 6 USD (or your regional equivalent), access to unlocking 45 new weapon skins, a challenge coin with mini-achievements to unlock more stuff, a weapon display case, a mini-leaderboard to keep track of it all
and a partridge in a pear tree.
I have no idea what any of those words mean, but I'm sure some of you youngsters are more on the ball than this grumpy old onion.
The six new maps are as varied as they are colourful: Blackgold, Mist, Overgrown, Rush, Castle. all originals, despite the familiar sounding names.
Posted 30 Jun 2014PSA? what is this? Fear not, and listen to this soothing tune while I explain.
To state it in no uncertain terms: HLF is leaving the ownership of Zizzero, our gracious owners for the past few years, and we are emerging on our own, hosted and financed by suicide_mission and Brumisator ourselves, hooray! However, sadly, a server change means site downtime, that is inescapable.
Please expect HLFallout.net to be at least intermittently, and perhaps continuously offline for the rest of the week, as we transfer files, and the domain name.
