Glowing Mozilla

If you do not know yet, Firefox 4 has been released. Quick Review: It has has a new look and seem to work pretty well the bit I tested it out. The layout has been changed a bit as well and the menu bar has been removed, but can easily be enabled again with the options or right clicking next to the tabs on the top of the screen. The Add-ons manager looks pretty cool now and can be easily configured. Its worth downloading!

Firefox Glow

Anyhows, something that I find really impressive is glow.mozilla. It tracks everyone that click to download or upgrade Firefox and display it on a world map. It also display the amount of downloads so far and you can even check out how much per city have downloaded. Pretty interesting seeing how many people at different places is downloading the new browser.

So head over to and see that counter go!

New Themes

The plain black and white theme I had for this blog previously was a bit to boring for my taste. So after playing around with some textures, and since I really like paper style themes, I created the theme you can now see on this blog. Like you can see most stuff from the logo to the color of the text has been changed to fit in with the new theme.

Also check out my theme over at Youtube. The blue theme I had was getting boring and decided it was time to change it too. I did not create that theme as you will see by the website address on the background, but I might give it a try sometime and change it as well. The theme actually fits well with my most recent trailer of Desperados Wanted Dead or Alive.

If you are wondering where I got the background paper texture, head over to for free textures and brushes where several can be used for personal and commercial use!

Desperados Wanted Dead or Alive

I recently discovered one of my old games and decided to start playing it again. Desperados Wanted Dead or Alive, released in 2001, its a real-time tactics game with a wild west theme.

Desperados Cut Scene

You start with one character called John Cooper, a bounty hunter, that is interested in the bounty on a gang leader's head for robbing trains. First you will need to get a few friends to help out, and as the story progress, it becomes a lot more than just a bounty. The story is really good and with well done cut scenes and voice acting, it will keep you interested for a long time.

The game play is point and click where you basically select a action and perform it. There is a total of six characters that gets introduced as the story progress and each character also have their specific actions they can do with shooting being a general action for all characters, although the type of weapon is different for all. Fun thing about the game is, each time a new character joins your team, the following mission will be a kind of tutorial mission where you will learn each action of the character.
Desperados Gameplay

A lot of the game play depends on strategy. With the right actions at the right time, anything can be done. On that topic, you can also select a action for later use, and with the space bar, initiate that action, giving you the ability to focus on something else while your character does the action.

So for example what you can do, Kate O'Hara can lore a man in with showing a bit of leg. As soon as the man is close to her, she can kick him, knocking him out, allowing Samual Williams to tie him up. You can then use John Cooper to pick him up and hide him in a house or dark area where his friends can't find him and untie him. This is just one example of what can be done and with six characters, the possibilities are massive.

Desperados Gameplay

You can check out some more information and get the demo over at Spellbound. Its worth a try so I would suggest downloading it and trying it out.

Since the pre-production of some movies I have planned is taking some time and that I really like this game, I decided to make a short trailer for Desperados, showing some of the game play and cut scenes. The music I used for the trailer is by EagleGuard. You can check out the full song over at Newgrounds.

Japan, Media Rant, How you can help.

Most of you will already know about the earthquake and then tsunami that have hit Japan. Its really horrible, and something that really makes me sick is the way the media covers it, and its not the first time I have seen this.

Each time there is a major natural disaster, the media is all over it with news and footage. This is good if you want to know what is going on, but I have seen times where the facts are hyped up and footage of people really needing help. Of course, instead of helping, all the media does is filming.

I see no point why they can't help out, and don't even give me that bull "but the world has to see what is going on". Thats just a weak &"&£^$* excuse to sit and do nothing. Put down that camera and help some people! Use the resources you have for filming people suffering the whole time and get people food, water and any help they need. You will do a lot more good helping some people than showing the world the suffering.
