[UT3 Scene] Kill, Crush

I thought it's time for another scene. While I love that this can happen, I hate when it happens to me D:

The video is stuffed with effects of Sony Vegas this time, so it won't appear as grainy and noised as it used to on this map.

Steve Jobs dies at 27+27+2.7.

Due to his critical health situation, Steve Jobs resigned from his position as CEO of Apple on August 24th. The rumors of him being dead have been going around for months, supposedly sparked by a single Tweet, but the day has come those rumors found sad verification. Steve Jobs, born 24th February 1955, died at the age of 56.

"Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be in the foundation of Apple."

A short announcement: New blog to come

Recently, I haven't been able to find something appropriate to talk about, and seriously, I hate the feeling I have to write something, I'd rather do it whenever I find something worth talking about. And I can talk a lot about Music. So I decided I will put up a Music - blog. Either in a week, maybe tomorrow or even today, I have yet to decide. I will announce when it's running then.
I'll still update this blog right here though, don't get me wrong, I just think the music blog will be updated more frequently.

Gears of War 3 Release

There are few games in this world that make fans celebrate countdown parties. In the past, milestones like Halo 3 or World of Warcraft were needed, just to name a few. Now Gears of War 3 is at the ready to finish the chronicles of Marcus Fenix.

About 479 GAME and GameStation stores have promised to open up in the UK for midnight, with 20,000 shops worldwide opening its doors for tonight.

Finished Dead Island already? Trade it for Gears of War 3 

HMV offers to you to trade in UK's current number one title Dead Island for Gears of War 3 for a surcharge of £1.99. Not to be outdone, GAME will also sell you Gears of War 3 for £4.99, which let’s be honest, HMV’s offer outdoes GAME by £3, when you trade-in Dead Island, Driver: San Francisco or Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.

Gears of War 3 Reviews

Official Xbox Magazine: 10/10
“Quite simply, Gears of War 3 leaves no stone unturned – it’s everything a triple-A blockbuster should be.”

Guardian: 5/5
“Committed gamers know what to expect from the Gears Of War franchise, and Gears Of War 3 will tick all of their boxes. Chainsaw bayonets and blood spatters: tick. Hulking space marines: tick. Chest-high walls and new and interesting ways to blast the Locust troops: tick.”

Digital Spy: 5/5
“…it’s the great bump in visual quality, the diverse and engaging campaign that never lets up, and a universe that finally catches your interest that impresses the most.”

Joystiq: 5/5
“Between the pacing and the attention to detail visually, auditorially, and narratively, it’s also the best campaign Epic’s ever done, and one of the most exciting, consistent campaign experiences on the Xbox 360, or any other system for that matter.”

Giant Bomb: 5/5
“The members of Delta Squad have finally found some closure, and, for all of the derisive things the world lobs at Gears’ totally-broed-out motif, the story even manages to be touching on multiple occasions. It’s a joy to play, and the game’s expanded set of multiplayer options will give you plenty of things to keep you busy for a good, long time. Oh, and Ice-T’s pretty great in it, too.”

Game Informer: 9.5/10
“This is the best execution yet of an idea that spawned one of the biggest modern franchises in all of gaming. What’s not to love?”

GameSpot: 9.5/10
“Even if you don’t remember where you were on Emergence Day, this is one adventure you won’t soon forget.”

Unreal Tournament 3, now with Nyan Redeemer

A group of three dedicated UT3 players decided it's time to follow the hype of Nyan Cat.
The result was a mod for the nuclear weapon of mass destruction: the Redeemer.

This mod replaces the original Redeemer with the Nyan Cat Redeemer. A nice feature: the closer you are to the cat, the louder the music will get.

Killmessages: Player1 got Nyan'd by Player2. And loved it!

Redesign [+ Scene]

So basically what's up is that I've wasted approximately 4 hours on doing a Redesign just to notice you can NOT save your work with the testversion of Artisteer. Seriously, do not bother using this program! Cracked versions as well as test versions are not able to save your work. The program crashed like 3 minutes before I was done and when I started over again, it crashed halfway. Rage level was uncontrollable...
You know that feeling when you spent hours on doing something creative and then your program goes "NOPE.AVI" and you end up having your time wasted?

I was so pissed, I didn't even have the motivation to write, edit scenes or play anymore. So, sorry if I neglected not only my but also your, my follower's, blogs.

As a compensation, have my personal NOPE.avi scene I did just now.

[UT3 Scene] High Distance Enforcer Fling Shot

First minute on a server I didn't know. I thought the taxirun they tried to pull off was already undeniable anymore, but I tried my luck and succeeded. See for yourself:

[UT3 Scene] Triple Accidential Teamkill

Well, crap, he should be pretty pissed at me (yes, it's all the same person).
  • First time I just wanted to boost him (meaning I'll speed him forward so he can score faster)
  • Second time I saw he couldn't reach the flag, so I tried to push him up
  • Third time wasn't really my fault; wanted to do a taxi run with him, he ungrappled to take the flag and got crushed by a spawning vehicle... LOL

Anyway, enjoy

P.S.: Teamkill was disabled, that's why I didn't think I'd kill him ;)

GoW3 Add-ons + Season Pass

Although Gears of War 3 is still weeks away from the final release, Epic has announced there will be several add-ons released. The first of them will be released this November.
Those add-ons are supposedly a must-have for any fan of the Gears series. They will be adding hours of campaign and multiplayer mayhem.
The Gears of War 3 Season Pass will be available on September 20th, the day of the GoW3 release, and will cost 2400 Microsoft points on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
The advantage of purchasing a Season Pass versus purchasing all add-ons individually will be a 33% saving, plus it will include a Liquid Metal Weapon Set.

Gears of War is undeniably one of the most celebrated sagas in video gaming. Statistics now confirm this: The third part of the series has surpassed a spectacular 1.3 Million pre-orders worldwide! That makes it the fastest pre-selling Xbox exclusive in the history of the platform.
Already 20 million matches have been played in the multiplayer beta this spring.

[UT3 Scene] The Neckbreaker

Today I present to you: The Neckbreaker
A nice way to kill targets is make them trip (e.g. shoting them from their board) and make them hit a corner with their head.
That's what I did here.

Ah and one more thing, don't ask me why the quality screwed up, it was fine when I rendered it.

[UT3 Scene] Homerun!

I catapulted someone in mid-air with my Fury. Flinging him like an ant from my leg.
He definitely didn't see that one coming. ;)

Adhesive Games has brought out a UDK-based Mech game called Hawken.
In case you don't know what UDK is, I will write an article about that later.

Hawken is basically a mech-themed FPS. Because it was created with UDK it's running on the Unreal Engine 3. The focus is on creating an intense and enjoyable battle experience that captures the feeling of piloting a heavy war machine while keeping the action fast-paced and strategic. The game offers two unique team game modes, as well as team deathmatch and free-for-all deathmatch.

Developer: Adhesive Games
Release: TBA
Genre: Action, First-Person, Shooter
Platform: Xbox 360, PS3, PC
Publisher: N/A

Gears of War 3 has gone Gold

Epic Games Executive Producer Rod Fergusson announced today to the staff at Epic Games and the world that Gears of War 3 has gone gold. The arena at headquarters was filled with excited Epic staff members as Rod made the announcement. After the announcement was made, Rod had PR Manager Dana Cowley roll out the cake and he along with Design Director Cliff Bleszinski cut the cake with a Gold Retro Lancer. The cake was a gift from Microsoft. The consensus was the cake was delicious.

Now I want some Gears of War cake...

The UT3 campaign

Before the release of UT3, the developers advertised the great story. Let's have a look at this in detail:

The story

In times of war, in a far away galaxy, there lived a guy named Reaper. He was a former miner.

One day, the Krall and Necris (the "dark deads of space", working with the most powerful - Nanoblack - technology) invaded his colony, Twin Souls, destroying everything and everyone. To escape, he ordered one of his teammates, Othello, to take a fighter spaceship. That wouldn't help evacuate the colonists but at least get his sister to safety. A few moments later, he gets shot with a rocket launcher. Only with luck he survived; rescued by his sister. She arranged a deal with the Izanagi Corporation. They are now - in opposition to Unreal II, where they are the main antagonists - the Ronin's¹ employers because they were able to provide a hospital and a mercenary gig which gets them to their revenge on the Necris.

A Krall killing a colonist. In the background you see the necris inquisitor "Akasha"

The Izanagi are into whatever makes them money and they send the team of four, consisting of Reaper, Sarah, better known as Jester (his sister), Othello and Bishop on a mission to "steal" Axon's gear. That includes the Axon Goliath, which is a hefty armored tank. From there on it's just the regular game modes like CTF, Warfare and Deathmatch against seemingly "random" enemies.

The Axon Leviathan. The most powerful vehicle in the game. Four turrets and a main gunner.

Such missions continue until you finally head to the Necris homeplanet, Omicron 6. Lusting for blood, your team manages to intimidate Akasha² when you defeat her forces at Necropolis, the Necris capital. You follow her until you reach her little safe-house. So far you got her locked down. She's trapped on Sentinel, no support, no hope of escape. This is where it ends.


When you killed Akasha, you try to report in to your team, but no one replies. It turns out to be a trap by Phayder Corporation (the Necris "creators") and Malcolm, who used to command you in the name of the Izanagi. He ran their spec-ops. You were a disposable asset for him. 
Then you see a Necris warrior throwing Reaper's sister Jester down from a higher level of the building. Her last words were "Told you, it was a trap", laughs a bit, coughs blood and dies. Full of rage, Reaper vows Vendetta on Malcolm, since he was the only one who knew their plans. When he charges his Rocket Launcher for attacking the superiors of Necris forces, the picture cuts off leaving us with an open end.

Okay, okay, I admit, there's a lot to the story but only if you work it out for yourself. They don't display all the information as I did. You just play missions which are tactical strikes in the form of standard game modes against (if you don't bother working it out for yourself) seemingly random enemies.
That alone leaves me thinking that Unreal Tournament is a pure multiplayer game. At least it's way more fun online.

Song of the day

I must correct myself, I remember a song that fits now ;)

¹  Ronin: the last survivors of Twin Souls. The team you control in the UT3 campaign, consisting of Reaper, Jester, Othello and Bishop² Akasha: the necris high inquisitor. Leading force of the Twin Souls slaughter. Killing civilians for a living.

Sickest/Luckiest AirRockets + Bonus Scene

Sorry for being lazy guys, but I finally finished the scene I promised for two days ago lol
Although I had a lot to do today, I still managed to get it done.
I hope you enjoy it.

Good? Bad? Not worth an upload? Best scene ever? Tell me in the comments =)


Song of the Day

Because I'm in a chilled mood right now ;)


Tuesday, August 9, 2011


So guys, I made it! I passed my driving test and needless to say I drove around all day today ;)
Before driving, I never really listened to the radio but today I did. Some interesting stuff in there sometimes, did you for example know that having outdoor sex in Romania can be punished with prison up to 7 years? And that in Italy - to prevent that - there are public places where you are legally allowed to have car sex?!

Btw, I'll finish the scene tomorrow, I'm too lazy today ;)
Wish you all a good night!

Crazy First Blood (200+ Followers!!!)

First of all: Thank you all for following and supporting me! It really motivates me to keep going!
200 is huge number, I didn't think I'd get this much attention in that timespan.
It's a good feeling knowing people like my videos and my blog!

I've been busy lately, that's why I barely played UT or wrote an article. Nevertheless, I've got a new clip for you today.
Vehicles sure are fun. Especially when you do a 270° turn, switch to the gunner and snipe someone on the other side with it. In under 5 seconds ;)
I have another clip for you which I'll probably finish tomorrow. I made the sickest air rockets!

Did you notice the little extra I put in? It's only visible for 2 frames ;)

Again, I don't have time to write a longer post. I have to go to bed soon, 'cause tomorrow is the big day of my practical driving test. Hopefully I'll pass it =)


My song of the day is a piece by Phaeleh, King of ambient Dubstep!

Small AnarchyHalls single match FragMovie

There is a video that I made a few months ago and I thought now it's time to share.

 UT3: Anarchy Massacre

For those of you who don't know what the term "Massacre" in UT3 means, it's the highest in-match award you can get, as in 30 kills without death. That being done on a small map is almost impossible ;)

Head hunter means 15 headshots in one match.


A nice match I had on AnarchyHalls. Getting Massacre and Head Hunter ;D
Didn't score, yet I'm first. All I had to do was Raptor whoring a bit :D Look closely at the Dominating kill, too! :D

Had some cool scenes in it (lol the first kill). Didn't really put effort into the video though.


Video creation time: approx. 3,5h
Rough file size: 6 GB

Music: Celldweller - Birthright (Birthwrong Remix by Blue Stahli)

Because this video includes a song, there is no Song of the day today ;)
Btw, I think some of you misunderstood me, I didn't mean I'd post one every day, but on every post, which is every 1-3 days ;)

Can't wait for your feedback!

A Gameplay video (Skyscraper-Nightfire)

Sorry that I don't have time to write a longer article today, as I'm pretty busy I will only post a Gameplay video of the map "Skyscraper-Nightfire" that I made some weeks ago. I played under the nick "YouWishYouKn3w" as my friend used the name YouWishYouKnew and we wanted to look similar for some reason, lol.

Anyway, here it is. Enjoy!


Okay, so Rypelcam has this awesome bug, when you spectate someone in first person and said person dies, it wont automatically spectate him from spawn again. This is why I had to pause and search for my character some times and I left in the pauses for you to comprehend what just happened (and to prove I didn't cut the video and it was indeed all in one game, look at the clock, left upper corner).

To the game:

This is a gameplay video of the popular map Skyscraper-Nightfire. At first it looked like we would lose, until our team decided, it's time for a comeback! And so we kept scoring ;)
I myself think I did a pretty nice job in this match, had some cool scenes and elegant kills in it. Enjoy! :)

Tell me what you think :)

P.S.: The reason I said something unfriendly in the beginning to wagontv is because he is one of the most abusive and insulting persons this game knows. He thinks he's the best but he fails lamentably.

Personal Update

A personal update for today: I passed my theoretical driving test =)
Zero mistakes. Like a boss!
That means the song of the day is a happy one :)
Although you can skip approximately 3 - 4 minutes if you don't want to listen to the song in its entirety ;)

I will write a longer article either tomorrow or in two days. See you then =)

PC repaired + New Section (SOTD)?

My PC has been repaired! Yay!
I brought it to a computer store and the guy told me it was the mainboard. But due to the board being old and outdated if I wanted my PC to work again he'd replace it with a new one which would mean he'd also sell me a new processor. Then he said it's advisable to buy a completely new one. At this moment my only thought was: What the flying f**k?! I don't even play that much anymore and if I do it is UT and for that my PC is enough.
So I told him I'll think about it, gave him his 20€, took the PC with me and went to the Computer store on the opposite side of the street. He replaced my MSI G31M2 mainboard with an ASUS P5QPL-AM, which happens to have the same chipset, took an hour to dust all my gear and replace the mainboard, tested it, took no working fee (!), even gave me a new cooler for almost nothing and was done. 57€!
Next time I know where to go first.
Now it's all up and working again. And it's a lot less noisy!

So now I am able to work on my frag movie... maybe. I have my theoretical driving test tomorrow and driving lessons every day the next week. If all works out I have my driving license the monday after tomorrow!

That all said, I want to ask for your feedback:
I'm planning on adding a "Song of the day" section on the end of every upcoming post. Good idea or not? It would look like this:


Today's song of the day is a song that I knew for a few months now. It is a mindblowing and beautifully haunting piece of music that has really touched my heart. The description of the song says it all (I corrected it a bit ;)):
"Embracing Solitude is an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish. Seven minutes of just you and your thoughts. A track that has no lyrics but still speaks a thousand words. I really cannot say enough about this track, it's just a devastating combination of pure harmony and powerful emotion that gets me every time. I could go on for hours talking about this track. JCB has genuinely created a masterpiece in Drum and Bass."

Please let me know what you think of this new section. Good idea or redundant?

New Unreal (Tournament) to come?

According to an article I read yesterday, Epic's president Mike Capps admitted they have neglected the Unreal Series:
"It's been a long time since we shipped an Unreal game, and it's an awfully loved franchise that we hold pretty dear here. We haven't been giving it the attention it deserves because we've been focusing on Gears of War and we're still a relatively small company."

"At some point you wonder why we don't rename the engine the Gears Engine or something," he joked.
Although a concrete affirmation for a new Unreal (Tournament) part hasn't been given yet, this makes an Unreal fan's heart quite happy. I personally would prefer a UT4 over the next Unreal part number 3.
"We've been sort of focused on making new properties, which you've seen with Shadow Complex, Bulletstorm and Infinity Blade, but sometimes I think just as a businessman that maybe we should be spending some more time with our existing franchises."
The only thing worrying me is that back in 2009, Tim Sweeney, who happens to be CEO of Epic Games, said, Unreal Tournament 4 is "several years away". It won't be out before Gears of War 3 (to come September this year), that's for sure. And when GoW 3 is out, who knows, maybe they just start working on GoW 4, since it's a steady revenue source. However, GoW 3 does complete the current story arc. Wouldn't that be a good chance to focus their energy on a new Unreal? I have faith.

Expansion + Around-the-corner kill

I use this chance to tell you that I've signed up on a whole lot of sites.
With your support, I'm able to make this site more popular!

If you care to help me, I'd really appreciate if you'd click on that little StumbleUpon badge in the top left corner of my blog. Alternatively, click here to follow me on StumbleUpon and rate a few of my posts up :)

Then, I also signed up on Reddit. If you'd upvote those links, I'd be really thankful for it!

You can also subscribe to my blog on YouSayToo. Click

That being said, here's the video I promised. I killed V31O, the cheater whom I talked about earlier around the corner using an EMP'd vehicle, comboing it to crush him on the wall.
Before you ask how I knew he was there, I cut out the part where I walked there. I saw him going around the corner and thought "Why not, let's try".

I look forward to reading your feedback =)

My computer gave up now. I'll have to give it to an expert to fix it. But even a week without my beloved PC is my demise. Well, it seems I have no other choice. Even if I was able to find out myself that my RAM is broken for sure, I'd still need new memory. So I rather leave this whole thing to a specialist.
In the meantime I'll try to post from another PC, maybe from my girlfriend's.
I'm currently working on a small minitage frag movie which I can only continue making when my PC is repaired :/
I have a little video which I can share with you in the next post. I sent it to someone where I can hopefully upload it from. So stay tuned!

Introducing the 3 Top Movie Creators of UT3 (besides me ;))

I thought it's time to feature the people who motivated me to create my own movies. Without them I probably wouldn't do this here ;)
So, let's begin with:


By far the best UT3 frag movie I have ever seen was created by this guy. Not only this guy has sick ingame skills but also owns everyone in movie editing.

He also has a lot of small clips. Worth checking!


He is the most sympathic one out of the three. I.e. the one I know best ;) He's a loyal follower of my youtube channel and leaves me the best comments =) Thank you for that.
One of his Fragmovies really got me. But I also love his Clanwar resumé videos. They are always really great to watch, they contain a lot of action, FOV changes and effects which make them really unique.

Check his youtube channel please. A lot to discover there:

VegasKill (aka VegaSkill) 

The video editor I knew first. He was the first one I discovered. Unfortunately, he doesn't play anymore but he is one of the major developers of Rypelcam which made all of the (decent) fragmovies possible. Without this tool, they wouldn't exist. So a big THANK YOU goes to you!

That was today's post, I hope you enjoyed those videos and share some love with the channels of those guys.

Gaming Rig

My PC is now about 3 and a half years old (at least I think it is). My RAM seems to be broken because all of a sudden my PC decides to restart or shut down and it takes more than 3 tries to get it started and running again. I'm thinking about getting new components, my graphics card for example is not the best anymore and I have problems with current games. My specs:

Processor: Intel C2Q 6600 @2.4GHz
Graphics Card: EAH3870 Series
Mainboard: MSI G31 M2
Hard Drive: 500GB Samsung (don't know the exact model name)
Memory: 4GB RAM (also don't know which exactly)
Keyboard: Logitech G15
Mouse: Razer Copperhead
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit
Sound System: A badass Logitech THX

Now to my question: Any idea what to update first?

UT3 Randomness (100 followers!)

 Yes! I did it! 100 followers! Thank you very much everyone who supports me with useful feedback and reads my blog on a regular basis (also thank you if you just read it once... but you probably won't read this ;)).

Okay, now to my post for today: 
Recently, I've managed to have some pretty random ingame scenes. So I thought, why not get the Demo, record and share them?


It all started with a random first blood I had once. Jumping from the spawn house and randomly shoting a rocket on the other side. Not all that spectacular, but pretty funny (except for the victim ;)).

But not enough with that, doing it again made me kill two people at the same time (with the same projectile, lol).

Here's a funny scene from my despised map Shoebox. I killed a vehicle with my Longbow and the wreck pancaked my primary targets at the same time (ultimately ending someone's killing spree. Sucks to be him).

A random teamkill I did on my teammate while he was trying to do a flagrun. Shot him out of the air like a clay pigeon with air rockets.

And as last scene I bring to you: my suicide fail. Shot a Longbow (which is made for vehicles, kind of a rocket launcher with lock-on for enemy vehicles), locked on a neutral vehicle by accident (simply walking towards it, crosshair was on it), got in and got killed by my own Bow....

Tell me what you think about those videos. As always, feedback is greatly appreciated. =)

Gaming Music

It is commonly known that music has a huge influence on your mood and concentration. Music helped Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of Independence. When he could not figure out the right wording for a certain part, he would play his violin to help him. The music helped him get the words from his brain onto the paper. I know from experience that listening to a certain genre of music changes my gaming performance in niveau and style. 

First Person View

Rypelcam Version

Psytrance with heavy guitars as well as ambient sounds influence your gameplay the most. While with metal you play more aggressive and offensive, you play more defensive with epic soundscapes. From my experience I can tell I play with Incubus' album S.C.I.E.N.C.E. the best. 

What's your favorite music to listen to while gaming? Tell me in the comments, I'm curious ;)

Missing Anti-Cheat and the case of V31O

What has been bugging me is the fact that the amount of cheaters increased drastically over the past few weeks. There is a certain player named V31O, he used to be one of the best players, though his gameplay is/was kind of lame. All of a sudden he disappeared for a long time. Ca. 1 year later he magically appeared again with even lamer gameplay, not talking at all and highly suspicious actions. He almost doesn't miss (triggerbot/aimbot), knows where everyone is (radar/wallhack suspicious) and simply does not reply to any cheat accusations. He plays a few matches and then either crashes or leaves without saying a word. So I wrote a report on the forum, posted a demo and all the scenes that are suspicious to me in a txt file for everyone to check. Now, V31O has been quite popular before his sudden disappearance, majority didn't believe me although they agreed some scenes are curious.

So I decided to find me a radar and record scenes of the Demo and upload them to youtube:

Notice, how he exactly knows when someone's jumping up the pads and knows where flag carriers are
Still they didn't believe me :/

I have brought down cheaters before, who are now banned on all official and clan-servers, as well as on all the popular vCTF (vehicle Capture the Flag), and Warfare servers. Now, players have to manually take care of all of that because Epic simply didn't integrate any Anti-Cheat/Cheat Detection Software.

Oh Epic...

UT3 is dead

Unreal Tournament 3 is a dead game. I hate to say it but it's true. There are still servers up but they are empty most of the time. And whose fault is it? The mapper's together with noob's.
A game that has this much potential should not be treated this way. Some mappers create ugly box maps with a maximum amount of spam where the only thing you have to do is run forward, shot rockets and hope for the best. Noobs keep voting these maps because they are:
1. small in size and thus download friendly
2. made for spam, this means easy kills with no skill

(I was playing with my alter ego there, DonkeyKong is not my real player alias ;))

But UT3 is not Counter Strike. It's not a sit and shot, pointy-clicky game. You are able to use vehicles and people can use their hoverboards to grapple them. This allows fast-paced teamplay actions for nice and elegant flagruns.

(although the video is on my channel, I didn't make it, but I am the taxi driver)

This scene happened in a clanwar between two top clans: _Dark_ and Prototype. And even though I'm not in one of them, I played because of lack of players for _Dark_... As I said, the game is dead.
