News: The 31 Days of the Dragon

April 29, 2008

Quick: what’s 20.1 inches wide and ways over 15 pounds? If you said my dog, close. If you said a part of the male anatomy, no, you sick fuck. The answer is the HP HDX Dragon Entertainment Notebook, or this thing : Wow, behold my first image on this blog. Sad. Anyways, what’s not sad […]

Games at a Glance: GTA IV

April 28, 2008

Grand Theft Auto/GTA is probably the most controversial video game series in history. Even more so than Counter-Strike, GTA has become the scape goat whenever someone who once played video games ends up killing someone. Usually the psychos making this claim are right-wing nuts who care more about video game control than gun control. I […]

News: Mobile Sites

April 28, 2008

Wap and mobile (.mobi) sites, for those of you unaware of what these are, are sites designed to be viewed on mobile devices, such as cell phones. That doesn’t mean you can’t view them with a regular browser, they just appear stretched as you can’t fit a lot into a 2 inch screen. There are […]

Game Review: Earth Defense Force 2017

April 25, 2008

Let me get something out in the air: while I am a fan of Japan, its culture, food, history, impact on gaming and animation, etc. I do not like Japanocentricity. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, watch or play anything from Japan: does that game or show take place in Japan? Japanocentricity is […]

News: WoW TCG

April 24, 2008

For those of you that don’t know, I play CCGs/TCGs. I started with Magic: The Gathering back in 6th grade, fall out of it every few years, get back into it, repeat. I also have significant collections of Star Wars: CCG and Legend of the Five Rings (I also have some Pokemon cards; I thought […]

Movie Review: Troma Films

April 13, 2008

We’ve all heard of the big name production companies: Miramax, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Etc.  There also happen to be a number of independent production companies out there, one of the more infamous being Troma.  Never heard of Troma?  You’re lucky, because the name might as well be Trauma, seeing as how the films are […]

News: Controllers

April 10, 2008

As my title is “Fun with Controllers,” I thought I probably should post something dealing with, well, controllers. Luckily there has been an influx in news about controllers, which makes the situation a bit easier. Nintendo’s New white GameCube Controller: I of course asked myself “Do they even still make the ShameCube?” Then I realized […]

Game Review: Super Smash Bros. Brawl

April 7, 2008

For those of you familiar with this blog, or my personal tastes, you will know I am not a fan of the Wii. I think it is an incredibly gimmicky system designed to bring non-gamers into the video game industry. It also is not revolutionary. Swinging a control technology has been around for years, and […]

Game Leak: Gears of War 2

April 1, 2008

For those of you that don’t know, one of my pledge brothers who went to Full Sail landed a job at Epic Games last summer. After seeing my blog, he called me up the other day and told me about some new features and events about the upcoming Gears of War 2. I have to […]
