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.

Built by Chris “Omega” Ruble from Gamer-Grafix.com, the Xbox 360 has been modified to resemble a modern day military humvee, and was inspired by Fun For Our Troops.
The Xbox 360, enclosed within the Hummer’s shell, is entirely functional and features its own built in monitor, as well as a 250 GB Hard Drive. Chris has fused his passion for supporting the troops with his love of art and video gaming to shape one of his most impressive pieces of work to date.

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!

Did you enjoy being a complete badass with the Force in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed? If you played this game anything near to how I played it, you used ever power to the most destructive way imaginable. The whole “with great power, comes great responsibility” ideology was thrown out the window once I had the chance to be a Sith/Jedi.
Well, this fall The Force Unleashed II will be released and the Collectors Edition has some pretty sweet goods coming with it. The steelbook that comes with this edition looks mighty sexy. Click the linked image to the left to read more about what you’ll receive if you pick up the Collectors Edition.
