Been a while...

I have finally returned from Break, and my computer has finally returned from the land of eternal sorrow. In case you didn't know, that would be the land next to the land of intermittent rage. Intermittent Rage having Dial-up, while the land of eternal sorrow has no interweb whatsoever. While I'm at it, I would like to give special thanks to the man with the Indian accent at the Toshiba help line. Because of him, I can post this blog, and I didn't have to wipe my computer.

But I return with a few treats for you all. The first of which is a plug for a my new comic series called "039." 039 was created using a program called PrimoPDF. This program allows you to make PDFs out of normal documents such as Word and PowerPoint. You follow the procedure to print a document, and instead of selecting a printer, you select PrimoPDF. It then automatically converts the document to PDF format. The really fun thing about this is that it works for Vista documents.

Another thing I would like to share is the Halo Wars Demo. The demo is absolutely amazing for anyone who is a fan of Halo and the RTS genre. Halo Wars is a 360 exclusive, so don't be looking for it on the PC. The controls are streamlined and easy to use, but if you are a fan of micromanaging, that aspect has been diluted to an extent. You get one self renewing resource that you use to build everything, and the diversity of units is not as extensive as other RTS games. I personally will be purchasing it for three reasons:
1- The storyline
2- The Mythic Map Pack included in the Limited Edition
3- The simplified gameplay

039 Is a comic based on Spartan-039 Isaac from the Halo universe. It takes place shortly after his disappearance on the planet Reach. It combines aspects of Halo: Fall of Reach, Halo Wars, and the online comic Reclaimer.I drew inspiration from all of these sources and as such you will notice similarities betweem my comic and Reclaimer. Bear in mind that my story is significantly different in that my comic tries to take place within Halo canon whilt Reclaimer takes place in an alternate Haloverse. No plagiarism is intended. As soon as I find a decent file hosting service I will post a link to the First Comic.
