mistaken identity

wow. this is fucked up. a family who was taking care of an injured daughter for the last 2 months after an accident with multiple fatalities just found out that the girl who they thought was their daughter was actually the daughter's friend, and their daughter was dead.

GAM3R 7H30RY

I'm assuming this site just launched, because the forums are sparse, but it's a million times more interesting than other "academic" sites out there. GAM3R 7H30RY has a focus on the more critical theory behind games and the way people play them. it's a little deep for me in some places, but i dig the intentions. here is a example of my first post on their forums. if you listen to the podcast, you probably know i don't really talk like this, my brain was chugging after writing this. (the game in question is Katamari Damacy, i spent a few hours over the weekend playing and have the memory fresh in my head.)

there is a underlying theme in the game, one of quiet, hidden terror. although the game masks the act of voracious consumption with music and quaint, fluffy images; despair is the final emotion that rises to the top when those final seconds are reached, when the haunting call of the sirens send the prince into a final, frenzied panic to get [i]just-one-more-item[/i]. and to begin again? you must always begin again, forever, with no hope, real or imagined, to satisfy your desire to consume EVERYTHING. when the end is reached, in the final stage, you are offered a chance to perform for the cosmos with no time limit. that brings the endgame gambit to a surreal conclusion; a metaphysical prison with nothing to consume........a wandering prince, condemmed to travel the earth for something to pick up, eternally...........

i think i'm going to write a dissection on the themes of prey, predator and consumer dysfunction in the pursuit of sweetmeats and neverending hunger in the seminal NES game, Chubby Cherub.

HELL YEAH!!!!!!

Since i've gotten Guitar Hero, i've wondered how some other great songs would play, like hotel california or cliffs of dover. I hope some person out there without a job and with a SHITLOAD of free time can make my dreams come true. This application, (it's not out yet) will prove to be the way to get any song you want to play on a pc......

blah blah blah

I had a podcast ready to upload, and cuz i got busy planting spring flowers and tomato plants, i got broadsided by the 1000 lb. gorilla that is E3. i quickly realized that my entire podcast was outdated before it even saw the light of day. for that reason, i have decided to ab0rt the podcast and record impressions of the e3 stuff and possibly put out 2 podcasts in a row out this weekend. then again, i have a full plate of wedding stuff to take care of, so all this might get pushed back even more. the Halo 3 trailer was weak, i thought there was going to be a 2 min with gameplay footage????

oh well. Gears of War looks fucking great, though.

This is just nasty

Xbox360fanboy.com points to a youtube video of a Halo-ish plasma rifle wannabe super soaker. the discharge from the rifle looks too much like, well, something Cubs fans might be familiar with.
