Hot as balls – time to play video games

Time to turn the AC on, get a coke, pull down the shades, and play video games.  Seriously, it is an absolutely brilliant idea.  Think about it, a lot of the servers I play on are all US East, East, North America, etc… and who plays video games at this time of the day?  Kids out of middle school and high school.  That is right – it is the perfect opportunity to pick up your sticks and enjoy a few hours of gaming and kicking the ass of middle school kids.

“Jack, that is probably one of the most messed up things you have said on this blog… so far.”  True, but for the hardcore gamers out there, let me explain.  From about 10 am (need that pre day workout) most gamers are working till about 5 then go to Happy Hour – till about 10.  My mathematics could be off but I am just stating my typical post drink experience.  As I was saying – from about 10am – 10 pm, most of the gamers online are teens who haven’t quite developed their hand eye coordination or motor skills.  They seem to be a few millionths of a second behind – HAHA nbes.  🙂 But knowing that – double up on XP boosts and win games.

For me I seem to only win games during these hours – so what do I do – farm and exploit this flaw so it appears that I am actually good or a high rank.  It is the fastest way to level and keeps you away from the sunlight, genius!  If you are one of those skilled gamers, or want to find people like you to play with during this heat wave, why not check out GamerPeer.com?  That’s what I am doing!  Private information is hidden, but atleast you will be able to find people who play the same games and have same personality/interests.  Wait a second – if my best matches are with nbe teens, does that mean I am a nbe teen as well who hasn’t developed motor skills?  Damn this is like a psychological conundrum that must be explored in more depth… after a few games of LOL and COD.

GamerPeer Landing Page

Posted in GamerPeer.com with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 14, 2012 by Jack Of all Trades

Alright so here is the deal.  My boy Jordan –  a college student studying graphic design got bored and decided to change GamerPeer’s entire layout and design of the site.  What an ass.  After spending hours tracking him down I finally get a hold of the kid and told him to stop doing amazing designs and layouts because they were silly looking.  I didn’t say silly but said a naughty word that ended in hitty.

I was obviously kidding because he is a very talented graphic designer but I somehow used my charm and wit to convince him to create a new landing page mock up for GamerPeer.com.  This is what he came up with.

GamerPeer design, layout, multiplayer gaming, matchmaking, games, gamer, graphic design

Jordan’s new design

If i get enough likes and comments of his design I will update GamerPeer.com’s splash page to his.  Please leave feedback and comments.  It will be greatly appreciated.

Modern Warfare 3… No, I do not want to play.

Posted in GamerPeer.com with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 27, 2011 by Jack Of all Trades
When you know you play to many video games
This is what I feel like after spending hours playing games for GamerPeer.com

So today a friend of mine told me that he finally got Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for 360, and asked if I wanted to play tonight or this week. My answer, was simple and to the point… “No.” After my brilliant answer he thought I was kidding because I love playing Call of Duty, especially instead of doing work. He continued by saying, “Why not? Your always down to game.”

I am not sure what it was, but at that moment I had a million answers running through my head. The scary thing was none of them had anything to do with wanting to play another game such as Battlefield 3, Fifa 12, or Star Wars The Old Republic, he just sucked and would bring my Kill to Death Ratio down. Not only would my Kill to Death Ratio collapse, but my win percentage would follow. On top of all that, he doesn’t know how to defend bases in Domination and would basically mess my shit up. Seriously bro my 15 year old sister would stealth and knife you from behind. I have already prestiged 2 times and am to important of a player to babysit while you learn how to camp.

My response… “I’m tired and have a lot of work to do tonight, maybe we can play tomorrow.” @TrueFriendsDontSuckAtVideoGames. On a side note, If anyone with a Kill to Death Ratio above 1.5 wants to game email me at TheJackOfallTrades10@gmail.com. (Kidding! but not really)

Look for another post later tonight on my favorite female athlete, who is a closet Gamer!

The disadvantages of outsourcing

So it is now 1:30 am EST and I have been skyping with our overseas development team for the last two hours.  Normally 1:30 isn’t that late, but we are now having 7 AM calls to finalize last minute changes to the website prior to launching our open beta.  It is definitely true that the last minute edits and finalizing design functionality is the hardest part of creating a website.  It is actually kind of crazy that a few years ago when I was still in College, 1:30 in the morning would be an early night to go to bed.  There were nights when we used to play Fifa, Call of Duty, and old school Super Smash 64 until 4 o’clock in the morning… Of course we modified our class schedule to make sure we didn’t have class until atleast 10 am, but that is besides the point.  More to come about GamerPeer.com and my transition to the tech world.
