newcptain3_zps41e6b88cSo after the latest server crash at TGN and the long period of downtime, I got to missing the people and talking and the going-ons in the gaming world. There have been a few things I wanted to write a blog about and could not do so. After a few days of thinking about it I felt I had two choices; 1. Call it done and just float around on the internet as another lurker in forums and not really give my two cents worth or 2. Figure out how to get a blog up and get the show back on the road and get my opinionated ideas back on the internet.

I have had this WordPress account for some time and never really used it. I wanted to grab the CptainCrunch name and thought one day I would build it up and do some stuff. I guess that day has come. I wanted to make a more permanent home and, nothing against TGN, something a little more stable.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love TGN and all the people involved in the site. I was actually thinking a little more about this change about a month ago after I wrote about Commander being back in BF4. What triggered me thinking about this was that I wanted to post my BF2142 How-To video on being a Commander. A nostalgia piece locked in times of long ago. The problem was that it was a video on the Google system. For those that don’t know this, Google had its own video section before they bought YouTube. Then they decided to merge the two. Then they decided that was a load of crap and instead told everyone they had a period of time to merge it themselves before deleting everything on the Google side. Then they came out and said never mind, all is good and Google will merge it and your content will be there forever. Then all those videos disappeared. Lost forever in some shut down Google server I suppose. (more…)
