We recently had a server move on the site!

www.thesavepoints.com changed hosts a few days ago. We now have a faster and hopefully better host to bring out reviews and such. Come visit us on the site over there instead of here where we don’t post anymore.

Not going to make any more posts on here…. not for a while at least

Just saying…

Well, I was planning on making more “what’s been going on at thesavepoints.com” posts, but I’m like 2 months late and don’t want to waste my time.

So instead this post will link to the actual website and I won’t bother with making posts here, unless we post something big. Which doesn’t seem to be the case for a while.

So yeah… COME VISIT US AT www.thesavepoints.com

there will be cake

A bit has been going on at the new address. Reviews, rants, big random posts.

Valkryst started his cosplay feature (which he’s late on right now…), and the contest announced last time was cancelled because we literally had no response out of it, but we’ll do something else later on.

HUGE UPDATE

Well, we didn’t have posts in the last few days, but we’ve got a good reason for that: we’re expanding just a bit.

That’s right. We bought our own domain and hosting, so now you can see us at  http://www.thesavepoints.com/ . We were setting this up in the last few days. There are still some adjustments to be done, but overall it’s done setting up.
 (Dave, wintrale, vic,valkryst(?) if you have trouble logging on at the new address just tell me) 

In the future we’ll be personalizing that quite a bit. New design, we’ll have a logo, you know the works. Currently it looks just like this one, but in a while we’ll be adding changes.

This blog won’t die though. I’ll keep updating here, just posting from time to time with  “What’s been going on at thesavepoints.com” kinda posts.

As for post we’ll be doing over there, I have like 5 reviews lined up and maybe some rants. Kyolux and Vic also have some reviews (and Kyo has a fun post) coming up, not sure what else.  Wintrale might have some nice import reviews before the end of year if all goes well on highly anticipated titles, and Valkryst might eventually start posting his new feature.

Well, not much more to say, come meet us at http://www.thesavepoints.com/, we’ve got some cool stuff coming.

For starters on our new site: The best of 2008 in gaming!

CLOUD Message Scans

Before I post the scans, I would like to thank ameblo.jp for supplying the world with the scans. Also, make sure to click the screens, as only the first and last ones aren’t linked to larger versions. I may be able to work on translating the scans over the coming week, time permitting, so make sure to keep popping back. Just click below to go to the scans!

Oh Mercy, No Mercy.

With a delayed review on Sonic and Prince of Persia, I figured I’d give you guys a few pointers in Left 4 Dead. Particularly… the No Mercy stage. The only stage I ever play in versus. I’ll also conclude this post with a few game improvements I think valve should bring to the game.

More after the break!
