Ok, it’s about that time again: yearly hosting dues in about a week. The site WILL continue to function.

That said, consider taking a moment to PayPal donate to our fund and give me some motivation to work on our sites “Da Gaming Mafia” and “Riskening”.

Great deal on web hosting…

Another gap in posting I know, but Dante’s Inferno and Little Big Planet among other things got the best of me for awhile there. I suppose it’s better than spewing nonsensical things day in and out (even if it MIGHT be entertaining…at first). Quality over quantity, right? Either way it’s not the reason I’m making this post today.

I’m posting this today to talk about a great deal on web hosting that I just had to mention here and I couldn’t pass up myself (considering my rates at this current host will rocket up after this first year). 75% off all shared hosting plans for the life of your account at Stablehost with coupon code AREWECRAZY (be sure to select the US server, as this deal does not include the European server). Comes to about $21 for a year with the largest plan. Sure, it’s limited space and bandwidth but that’s not always a bad thing. By that I mean I’m sure they don’t oversell like some hosts. It’s still way more resources than I can possibly need for my sites and an ideal solution for most looking for quality hosting. Feedback about the host and service looks pretty positive, check out this thread at slickdeals if you’re not quite sold yet or google them.

Please use my referral link and help out my site if you decide to get a plan also: (or use the banner below)

Be quick though since this code is only good until friday!

(Don’t forget, coupon code AREWECRAZY for 75% off lifetime of the account!)

UPDATE (5/1/10) – The 75% coupon is over with now but you should still be able to get 50% off with coupon WHT (all in all still a good deal)


Riskening 2009 : A Retrospective

The new year is upon us and we should all be looking forward to the next and all it has to offer in entertainment…BUT let’s take a moment to look at the ups and downs of Riskening for the past year, shall we?

January –

My old hosting failed me. (Big surprise…NOT)

February –

CoD : WaW and the start of a beautiful thing… (aka Resident Evil 5 demo)

March –

The old host fails…AGAIN. (surprised yet?)

The Resident Evil 5 coverage begins! (teaming up with my cousin)

…and Continues! (eat it Wesker!)

Nintendo is starting to get the picture (maybe) that we need more space on the Wii than they give us. (how about some more online games too?)

April –

Starting to get excited about Terminator Salvation… (and not disappointed regardless of what the naysayers have to say)

The Anticipated List is starting to take form. (it’ll grow in due time)

The 360 fails by way of the dreaded e74! (and the PS3 gets a little extra lovin while he’s gone)

I give my 2 cents about what was missing from RE5. (still a great game though, I forgive you Capcom)

May –

Tacos at Midnight Doritos disappoint me. (if I wanted to eat some taco seasoning I would’ve just ripped open a bag and chugged some down)

Atleast the Red Dead Redemption trailer picked my spirits up. (and the new gameplay one is even more exciting) 

We recieve some sad news about the development team at 3d Realms. (but DNF will push on and maybe we’ll actually be able to play it…someday)

I give my opinion about digital copies… (you know, those things that come with certain DVDs that I’m sure they charge you extra for AND that you have to use before a certain expiration date)

…and the new Eco-box craze. (here’s a hint, they suck)

Japan continues to make awesome commercials. (Oh Japan, you so crazy!)

What better way to celebrate Memorial day than with the first major Modern Warfare 2 trailer? (answer: it doesn’t get much better than that)

We learn a thing or two about game shipping precautions. (this has been a PSA)

The Terminator Salvation game, unlike the movie, disappoints me. (rushing licensed games out the door doesn’t pay, kids)

June –

Nazi Zombies postpones the new Anticipated List. (you win this time zombies!)

3d Realms continues to battle with it’s publisher Take-Two over Duke Nukem Forever. (FIGHT!)

The new look for Max Payne emerges…through several screenshots. (looking pretty scruffy man)

July –

We take a look at some of the latest and greatest titles in terms of Co-op play. (we’re in this together now)

The long overdue Anticipated series is underway at last. First up, Wii! (you know you want these games)

We learn a thing or two about stacking the dead. (in video games…of course)

Hey PS3! You’re up to the Anticipated stand. (bring on the exclusives)

August –

Nazi Zombies threatens the status of the Anticipated series AGAIN. (this time with a little help from Splosion Man)

The Anticipated List is starting to wind down…but not until we get through this feast of multiconsole goodies! (part 1)

September –

The Anticipated series goes out with a BANG! (and a heaping load of upcoming titles)

I try my hand at a DVDs of the week post. (maybe this will even become a regular thing someday?)

A suprisingly good week for us Co-op gamers comes along out of the blue. (it’s about time!)

October –

We took a little break. (hey, if I got paid for this I would be much more adament about keeping up with posts but alas…)

…until we get back into the swing of things with some of my favorite titles of the moment. (atleast my 21st birthday was this month too! 😀 …on the 21st may I add)

November –

I try to get back into DVD picks of the week again. (it was a nice try, right?)

The switch to a new web host begins at last! (and well overdue if you ask me)

…looks like things are going good on the new host, no? (even though it’s not hard to beat the old one)

December –

The Bayonetta demo astounds! (January’s looking to be a good one)

The DGM Wiki goes back online after much neglect. (sorry buddy, atleast you’re all upgraded and cleaned up now, right?)

An Animal Crossing Christmas greeting appears! (Awwww…)

…and there you have it! All the good (games and dvds), the bad (away time) and the ugly (hosting problems) of the year 2009.


from, and have a safe and healthy one.


We need a change… (no, this has nothing to do with OBAMA, thanks)

Covering new games all the time gets a little tiring after awhile and I’m looking for a bit of a change of pace, considering how slow this blog has been going lately.

What else do (most) guys like other than the occasional to frequent video gaming?

Fine and bountiful ladies of course!

That is why, starting next week, we’ll be changing course with the Dickening, a more ADULT oriented site dedicated to the gamer who also enjoys a fine looking woman.
You might have noticed that there’s a new Donation section on the sidebar that appeared recently, this is because I still need to buy the appropriate domain and new hosting for this all new site. The link above is for a subdomain that I’ll be using for testing and setting up before I get things ready for the change.

Enough of the talk though, let’s see a sneak peek at some of the ladies the Dickening will cover the latest updates of:

Yuma Asami, ever lovely JAV star.

Yuma Asami, ever lovely JAV star.

Jana Defi (Princessa), well-endowed model of beauty.

Jana Defi (Princessa), well-endowed model of beauty.

Caught your attention, right? 😉

I tried to keep these samples as SFW-ish as possible, but the real content on the new site will be much HOTTER and unrestricted.

Since I have to switch hosts for the new endeavor, please donate anything you can if you believe it’s a good idea (a dollar isn’t that bad, right? or more if you’re feeling ambitious).

Thank you for your help.

Remember,  4/6/09 the Dickening begins!


The fate of destruction is the joy of rebirth.

Evangelion quote FTW.

Anyways, I know the last post was kind of random but I was just waiting to segway into this tell all post about the events since the downtime. Oh, remember last post when I said I was going to do a February games of the month post? Yeah, that kinda got shot to hell when my host had me offline for nearly a week mid-month. Here’s that story…

Flashback to the 15th, my site had already been offline for a couple days on a “This account has been suspended” page, and I submitted my first support ticket. Almost immediately my ticket was forwarded to another department of support (which was probably I’ve EVER had with them). BUT I waited another 2 days on this support ticket and no new responses or answers. Of course Live Chat support has been offline since these douchebags took over, so then started I started another support ticket in hopes of SOMETHING, ANYTHING. After another day (this was the 19th by now), FINALLY my prayers were answered when someone from engineering responded and reactivated my account. This is what he said:

“Your site was apparently auto suspended due to suspicious activity. I reactived the account, however you will need to go through your web files to make sure nothing is wrong or malicious.”

I was rather confused, as something like had never happened before, so I asked him what exactly could have caused something like this. He responded again (rather quickly compared to their support in general, +2 for engineering):

“Either a excessive usage or malicious file. If it occurs again, I will make a note of what was occuring and let you know.”

Well OK, that didn’t help me too much. Let’s just hope that never happens again before my current subscription expires, m’kay?
This was a wake up call more than ever that I MUST switch hosts when the next opportunity comes up.

I’ve got more recapping to do, but I’ll save it for the next post SOON…
