UT3 Logo


I love UT3, and since it's the first in the UT series I really played, it is my favorite.  I know, saying this will enrage countless hardcore UT fans.  I had my friend Brett play online last night, and omg he was getting excited playing it!  It was seriously like watching an excited kid opening presents.  He was playing a crazy CTF match, and left and right everyone was dying, explosions taking out groups of players.  It was INSANE.  The maps on this server just kind of stunk, it was a killing frenzy where it's hard to shine when you're killing multiple guys in front of you, you get taken out by some backstabber; large open maps where there is limited cover, are ridiculous.  I'm not going to play them, I've made my mind up that much.


God I love hearing those phrases chanted out, and I bask in the moment of me, a killing machine. ;P  I'm not bad, but I won't pretend to be an amazing player; I need to play online more with the good players, because bots just don't do you fighting justice. Though, before I do that, I'm now playing to become an expert with each weapon. My latest experiments, have been with the sniper rifle. I was never good with the thing, and in close quarters I was as good as dead. From my experience, it's good to play against Average bots when you're trying to learn and master weapons, because you get second and third chances. So I've been playing a couple levels now (I forget the names off the top of my head). I had the number of bots (or is that players, I forget), set to 10, and set the game to a deathmatch for 20 minutes with no score limit. On the first run I got 269 kills, 8 deaths. That run, was incredibly hard to top, and I'll try to top it today; yesterday I wasn't able to. So during my runs, I'm excited to say I've gotten to hear, "MONSTER KILLL!" XD I used to suck with the sniper rifle, now I'm getting quite handy with it. Nearly every shot I get is a head shot, though I still have more training to do; and these were just against bots, I need practice against fast moving players. On Arsenal I got like 147 kills, and 0 deaths. After looking on YouTube, I may post some of my playthroughs.

UT3 is one of the games I enjoy playing the most, it's just good mindless fun!

Anyway, I'm on a mission to become a kick-ass UT3 player! Let me know if you want to play sometime, it'll be fun. :)

Here's a playthrough I did the other day:

Is this not a fitting line for the start of a programmer's blog? ;P  I know, I know, you must be sick of seeing it by now!

leetNightshade is my alias, and this is my blog.  This is my realm. Welcome, visitors.

Okay, so this is the start of my new blog at leetNightshade.com, previously I had a tech blog up at briansport.com, but I have a different vision for that site and domain name.  leetNightshade is an alias I came up with from piecing together different names from handle generators, trying to come up with an XBox Live name.  I soon discovered that this particular sn isn't really used by anyone, so I claimed it for myself.  Google leetNightshade, and you should find me.  So unlike my last blog, this one is a personal blog for me, not just a tech blog; so it will include anything and everything I desire to write.

I realized since I'm going to be making a wordpress layout, it would be easy enough to swap in that I shouldn't delay putting wordpress up any longer... so here it is!

I'm currently working on a C++ Project I'll get into more detail about in another post, but the game engine I'm developing is called the Warp  Engine.  Though I intended this imagery for this engine to be a warp hole, portal, something that takes you to new and interesting places.  When I say Warp Engine, I think something from Startrek, which isn't what I intended at all; though I think it still works.

So, I'm on a short break before classes start, here's my schedule.  Classes begin September 6th.  The above mentioned engine will continue to be worked on as a part of an independent study, and I JUST started to get my motivation back to start programming; though it's not all back yet.  But at least I had a spark of motivation!! That's alll that counts, rightt?!1 :)

Okay, stuff to do, later!

(hm, just noticed the font for the temporary layout is kinda smalll....)

Oh, and welcome to the Realm of leetNightshade!
