Tomorrow I Pick Up A Game I’ve Been Playing For Over 10 Years

Tomorrow, as many geeks know is new video game day. What you may not know is that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 comes out. This makes for a good week- although I wish it wasn’t quite so nice outside, because I just might have to bring my TV outside. I first played the Tekken series at a friends house way back in my sophomore year of high school. How long is that? Don’t ask a lady about her age! It never goes well. Tekken Tag Tournament was released back on the Playstation 2 and was actually the first game I owned…

How to Make Your Steam Library Portable

When recently confronted with the challenge of bringing my entire Steam library to a LAN party, I initially thought my options were limited to dragging my large desktop tower to the event or copying tons of files from one computer to the other and hoping Steam would recognize them all when I fired it up.  But alas, I found a better solution that solves the problem for the foreseeable future.

New Iron Man Armor- Makes Stark Look Like An Uncooked Chicken Nugget

So there was a lil’ media event called San Diego Comic Con this week. An event which none of us here at The Pig got to go to, nor could we really afford. That having been said we are just going to have to make the best of what the Internet saw. The folks at Marvel, bless their lil’ hearts- were nice enough to show us a display of all the Iron Man armor- including the new one. Frankly, it’s a good thing that I wasn’t there. I would have promptly felt up the crotch on the suit from Iron…
