It’s that time of year again. I made a trip to the UK to meet one of my Xbox friends for the first time. This trip was to meet my eldest friend, 70 years old, Webby41.
I knew Webby online through his son-in-law; Whom I met on last year’s Xbox friend meet up tour.
I met Webby in the South of London on the Isle of Dogs.
Webby took me on a tour of his old stomping grounds in London. It was hilarious recording the old man shouting at cabs.
We went to his favorite Pie & Mash shoppe. Beef Pie covered in parsley sauce.
Then it was off to the Greenwich Time Museum.
Can’t be ice cream on a hot July day.
With a stunning view of London.
Road trip Webby’s house to the Eastern most town in the UK.
Mr. & Mrs. Webby were such amazing host.
My buddy from Xbox Live, Zagstar. Just launched a site to help his local town home shops.
Check it out.
My friend Jeremy from Never Stop Marketing is trying to compile Xbox LIVE stories. The type of stories that people would remember and is all of the reason why someone should Join LIVE. Do YOU have a story worth telling. If so, post your story in the comments HERE.
Alright, so you may be wondering to yourself, “omgwtf” is Bogeh talking about, this has nothing to do with games or the game industry. Well let me tell you, you’re absolutely right! You may or may not know that I produce hip-hop/rap beats as a little side hobby. I’m definitely not a professional producer by any means, but I know I how to drop a hot beat, yeeeaaahhh! If you want to hear some samples, feel free to hit me up!
Anyways, the program I use, FL Studio, made by Image-Line, is having a sale on all of their plugins. Now I’ll give you a brief rundown of what this means. Plugins are essentially external sounds, players, editors, etc. for the default program. If you have never produced music before, I highly recommend that you download the free demo of FL Studio 9. If you like it, purchase it and add some plugins!
Not only do I use this program, but I’ve convinced Elite Effect to use it as well, even though he’s still running the demo version. So if you’re looking for some good plugins, here are the ones I recommend:
- Edison WAV editor
- Soundfont Player
You can check out the full list here. This promotion runs until the end of August 2010!
Like a fool, CrazyEcho tries out Harmonix’s new dance game, Dance Central, at E3.
Say hello to our newest staff member, Elite Effect. He’s been around the Xbox Community block for a while now and he’s one cool dude. He’s a valuable poster over on the Xbox.com Forums and now, a writer for BTG. Check out what he has to say:
Bogeh: Tell us about your first experiences with the original Xbox or Xbox 360. What did you think of Xbox LIVE when you first hopped online?
Elite Effect: “Woah!” It was like a portal to a whole new world of a gaming experience, lol. I didn’t have Xbox LIVE for the first year or so that I had a Xbox 360. So, when I finally got Xbox LIVE, one of the first games I played was Gears of War and it really blew me away. Read the rest of this entry »
The Xbox Community is vast and spans across many outlets ranging from Xbox.com, Twitter, Facebook, etc. It can be hard to get yourself involved in the community. All the information and bits of advice you read below is straight out of my personal experience with being more actively involved with the Xbox Community over the last six years. I’ve had many successes and many fails, but I’ve taken something from every experience I’ve had and learned from it. I’m warning you now, this a lengthy read. But if you’re the type of person who’s wondering “How can I do more?”, read on! Read the rest of this entry »
Wow I haven’t done one of these in long time. Sorry for the disappearance. I can’t believe I would have lost a passion with video games. Could playing a new game every week for 2 years really kill the joy?

As some of you may know, I was mentioned often as “the biggest fan” in many of the Breaking the Game podcasts. Luckily all my dedication and fanboy-ism paid off and now I am a contigent staff writer for BTG. What that means is that I am going to start writing some fun pieces for BTG and hopefully I can join them as a full time staff member if people like what I have to say!
I am a huge fan of writing and I already have some pretty interesting ideas planned. You probably already noticed that after reading my previous news story, “Answer the Call”. The majority of my writing will be reporting on humorous incidents and writing articles that make fun of what marketing companies send out to the masses.
I hope you enjoy my writing and I will see you around!!!
