Foreword: People love gore, and what better game to showcase this than Gears of War for PC? I want to thank the people who have figured out how to make this game work, and I need to thank Jewbacon as I know he spent a whole day suffering so I didn’t have to. With that said, I hope to see you in Tunngle playing with the rest of the underground crew! Enoy! ~ Versatile
Gears of War for Xbox 360 was huge. It was a game changer in terms of making taking cover behind boxes fun again. With the success of the Xbox 360, it was a no-brainer decision to create it for PC.

Foreword: I am very excited. This is definitely one of my favorite posts for 2009, and as you read further, you will understand why. This guide is clearly not illegal. It is simply another method to enable users to play their LAN enabled games over the Internet with friends. No longer are you bound to be in the basement with your PCs to play LAN games! There is a reason why I spent two long nights working on this guide and the excellent video! ~ Versatile
If you follow this blog, or know anything about VPN programs, Hamachi is a great program that people can use to play LAN games with each other. In short, Hamachi was the king for implementing LAN games to play over the Internet. How it worked is people would join these networks, and Hamachi gives each user a unique IP address. When you launch a game, the game is tricked into thinking that everyone in the network is on the same LAN, and hence, you can see each other to play the game.
Of course, Hamachi has other useful purposes such as being a great secure chat medium, as well as being an alternative as a safe VPN to tunnel into your PCs and transfer files or encrypt remote transfers or remote administration.
Last night was an excellent night in the Versatile household. Here I was in the basement with my brother, and there we were drooling over the computer screen. What did we see? Before us, we had ourselves a fully flashed Lite-On DVD drive from our Elite Xbox 360. Significance? The flashed drive will now let our XBOX 360 play all of our backed up, retail bought games.
Why is this significant? Xbox 360 games can range as high as $60 dollars. I know some people who are hardcore gamers, and nothing is worse than having your favorite game that you play daily suddenly crap out on you due to scratches or other scenarios that cause the game to be malfunctioning.
To combat this, users can make copies of their own XBOX 360 games (remember, owning a backed up copy of a game that you do not own is illegal) to preserve the original state of their retail purchase. It was surely a joyous occasion. How could it get any worse?
