Site of the week!

Posted by wars128 on September 2, 2007

Hey all! Just got done with my first week of school. So far so good, but it definitely is going to be harder than last year, but anyways..there might be a new show for yall if I can overcome whatever sickness that I have right now. You wouldn’t want an entire show full of sniffling and sneezing, would you? Also, I finally have a new computer and it is sweet! But back to the article at hand. This weeks site was introduced to me by our Resident Expert, Ghost0402. it is http://www.btechunits.com . It is a forum site, similar to the classicbattletech.com ones, but much less people and a bit laid back. There are many things to read and do there, such as Ghost’s Merc unit’s battles,games, and more. I really enjoy it. It may not update as often, but its still a good site.

Have a good labor day,

A change of schedule…

Posted by wars128 on August 16, 2007

I just came up with a funny idea. In honor of school stating soon, Thursday will be the day that you will find novel/sourcebook/TRO reviews on this site. Why thursday? Because in honor of..oh wait…that actually dosent work…oh well, it still works I guess.
todays book will be a TRO, the 3025R one, to be exact. This is the first TRo I ever had, and is needed if you plan to do any level one battles. It is simply a classic, feturing many of everyones favorite mechs, such as the Awesome, Atlas, Stalker, etc. A must buy, all most. And the cover just rocks!
My Rating: 5 Timber Wolfs out of 5

Finally figured out what the problem was. Seems my thumb drive just ran out of psace. Now everything is fine again. Unfourtunatly, I am running out of space on my podomatic account, so I may have to take down my first couple of shows….I will try to put those shows up here.

Just got back from a 3 day road trip to gulf shores, Alabama. just wish I didnt get sunburned and it didnt rain the last day. Get the novel Battle Royal and read it! Its great! I am kinda sorta taking a summer break from doing the show. I am trying to get back in gear and eventually I will get back to doing shows again.

This just made my day….

Posted by wars128 on June 26, 2007

I was going trough a scenario in MegaMek, with an all level one lance(a stock Panther, Valk, wolfhound, and Firefly) versus 3 of the PP Locusts, the 5Ms. i was only in control of the Wolfhound. I lost the Valk, then the panther, and then myself, without the other side losing any. So I think I’m done for. but, somehow, lo and behold, the firefly got lucky enough to have 3 kills and win the senario for me. It just made me laugh so hard in disbelief!

MegameK

Posted by wars128 on June 23, 2007

I finally got around to downloading this program, played a few matches in it, and I like it. I feel that this way I can perhaps provide better reviews now that I have played soem matches, even though so far they have just been against bots. I wa thinking that maybe eventually I might start a tournament, or just have a time one day of the week when ill be on and you, the listeners, can go against me or something….

2 important website announcements!

Posted by wars128 on June 22, 2007

I have learned recently of two new and interesting developments in Battletech Webites. First of all, my favorite Battletech website of all time, www.tro42.com, has gone wiki on us. That is really good, because it means it is much easier to upload designs, and to have discussions on them. also, the TRO hosting site www.mechground.comHas started up a newsletter, to let people know when the stats to the updated mechs in the updated TROs, i.e TRO3055U, will be added on to the website. I can’t wait for that!

I severely Dislike….

Posted by wars128 on June 21, 2007

Hey all. i got a message a long while back from someone saying it would be cool if I ranted about battletech stuff that i disliked. I have been going through Total Warefare on my computer over the past couple days, and i have found something to rant about: The support vehicel rules. Today i wanted to make a car. Just a plain, average car. Could I do it? nope. didnt get very far. The names for a couples things changed on me, I got cinfused, etc. Theres just too much math/ things to keep atention to at one time for me to do it. I would love to be able to do it, as I really like the idea of it all. But, I guess the way everything is written/ the rules is just to ….I honestly don’t have a word for it….
In other news, on a walk I came up with an idea. Every Monday, i’ll poll you guys on favorite Mechs, of varying types each week, like one week would be whats your favorite light Second line cla mech, etc. I also came up with every Wednsday i’d list a weapon, and you guys could post memorable/funny/odd stories involving that weapon. Sound interesting? Like it? Hate it? Let me know!
