head in the sand



i totally missed the big Halo 3 news today. Online co-op for 4 players is huge, and will extend the life of the game to INFINITY!!!! it's been rumored and demanded ever since Halo 2, and not only is it finally here, but it's here with friends!!!!!

some details: get bungie's full story and comments on the changes to the campaign here.

lol BOX FROM NINTENDO and zombie tv ( out of order, like)

so my TV has been playing tricks on me, turning on this morning like normal, and going apeshit as soon as i left to work. it's off now, and I'm starting to think it's playing a game with my head. anyways, i got a BOX FROM NINTENDO on thursday of last week, but for some reason (i forgot) i never opened it till today. inside, it had a Wii backpack and a Wii branded alarm clock. it had a note inside that encouraged me to take the wii out in the backpack and to use the alarm so i didn't oversleep wherever i chose to lay my head. the backpack is neat, and the alarm has a secret power that i didn't discover until i hit two buttons on the side......it scrolls through pictures on a tiny screen, about 1x1 inches. I'll take some pics tomorrow. it was preloaded with some of the Wii party pics and some promo shots of Wii hardware. i double checked, but no Mario Strikers: Charged. oh well, guess i have to buy it to lay the smackdown on J




i just have to mention this because i love those goofy LOL cat meme pictures that float around the 'net like so much flotsam and jetsam. some joker claims to have uncovered his long lost relative's Laugh-Out-Loud Cats cartoons from the 20's. It's been on Boing-Boing and other sites, so check out this flickr set and the official blog.

developments


wow, alot has happened since my last post. Ingmar Bergman has died, Lazlo Kovacs has died, my TV has died. yeah, call me materialistic, but out of those 3, my TV hurts the most. I came home from work today and my wife explained how the TV just stopped working. now I've been trying (to no success) to convince my wife that we need a new better at least 50 inch LCD with full 1080p and HDMI ports for a while now, but i NEVER wanted the old TV dead BEFORE the new one was already in the house!!!! talk about getting what you ask for!! anyway, so I'll be down for the count for the next few days (or weeks). aaah shit, i just remembered that BioShock is just around the corner!!! FUCK!!! I just got Resident Evil 4 for the Wii too, but have been too chicken-shit to actually play it past the first village. seems like the Wii controls make me even more nervous. and i can't NOT mention that a regular reader Spanny has gotten a blog do-over and launched his new blog, The Spandango Memoirs. i wish i had a clever name like that for MY blog....Endangered Gamer is getting old..... anyway, head on over and check out his Yellow Bastard chatbox on the right.

My 7 year old nephew Ferran recently rocked out to Guitar Hero for the first time, passing Surrender on his 7th try on easy. congrats to him. I invited my pal Ellen over this weekend, because she's a Guitar Hero god and I wanted some achievements i had no hope in hell of ever getting on my own. She has already beaten GHII on Expert, so i figured that getting me the 300,000 400,00 and 500,000 point achievements would be a piece of cake for her. unfortunately, that piece of cake came with a shitload of beer, and we both got too trashed to get any achievements at all. bummer. my wife did take some cheesy pics of us rocking out, and in a show of totally selfless transparency, I'll post the worst pic.



there, happy????

Halo 2 get in the book depot (pic unrelated......or is it?????)


there's a library in Mount Prospect near my fair city of Chicago that is hosting a Halo 2 tournament. it's come under fire from the National Institute for Media and Family because it's a M-Rated game, and "it borders on irresponsibility for a public library to sponsor an activity for kids as young as 12 that the industry itself has said is for adults." The library has defended it's decision, noting that the library's teen advisory board, made up of teens and junior high kids, suggested that Halo tournaments would pull more kids into the library since the game is so popular among their age group. Once the library found out Halo 2 was rated "Mature," it decided permission slips were an appropriate method to alert parents. I probably should care about this more than i do, since it's Halo-related. I even considered for a minute going over to Mount Prospect and laying a righteous smackdown on all those middle school kids, but then thought that maybe that would seem.....weird.......anyways, it looks like the library has pulled the event.

YEEAAHHH!!!! (high five!!!!)

two of my favorite bloggers have come home again.... Floridan Eckhart and Eliza Gauger, both from Kotaku fame, have landed at Destructoid.com as their newest bloggers. I don't mean to kiss their ass, but they're two of the funniest videogame bloggers i've read in a while. both left Kotaku last year, Eliza to GameLife.com (which sucked ass) and Floridan to god knows where. (i know it's a pseudonym....) anyways, go check out the first posts from each.

and because i'm drunk, check out this weird-ass video......


Metal Gear Solid 4 gameplay

Finally, the first gameplay from Kojima's battlefield surfaces in this 15-minute demo from last night's 20th anniversary celebration. (snake can puke!!!! how realistic!!!)

Last night, i spent some time with family and did this exact thing to my nephew. although he did make a face, he actually really liked the lime i gave him.

Best Contest EVAR


So Rockstar just sent over a email pimping it's newest GTA4 contest. WKKT is a fake radio station in Liberty City, and they're looking for people to vent about what grinds their gears and call a special phone number. The audio will be screened, and the best clips will be used in the upcoming Grand Theft Auto 4 radio station chatter. For the 4 people who've never played GTA, the radio stations are a huge part of why the series has gotten so popular. shit, i even used to rip the audio and burn cd's of the stations in GTA 3. yeah, I'm a nerd. anyways, call the number at 212-360-2368.

nuggets

so, here's some footage of Killzone for the PS3. I find myself thinking the EXACT same things about this game that i thought about Killzone 2 or 3 years ago. Looks good, like the enemy design, and it seems to be what the PS2 (3) needs. Except for that shitty controller. Killzone was a huge disappointment, considering the hype it received before it's release as a "Halo Killer". what do you guys think???

Gameplay

there's an videogame exhibit open now for anyone in the chicago area. It's called Gameplay, here's some press releasey info...

Gameplay is an exhibition that addresses the innovative ways that artists incorporate video gaming technology and strategies into their work as a means to explore themes such as place, identity, community, politics, and resistance. Gameplay features an exciting lineup of Chicago and international artists. Video games are at once associated with both interactivity and seclusion. Through the agency of the internet, online gaming has become a participatory source of virtual interaction with online communities; however, online gaming can also be considered a solitary retreat into a virtual utopia--lands in which the empowered user can manipulate, destroy, and engender. The word "gameplay" refers to the creative, resistant, or artful manipulation of video games by users. It can be said that "gameplay" relates not only to the strategic, but also emotional framework of play, as it is a unique reflection of the individual's meaningful bond to the game itself. And just as game theory has increasingly intersected with art theory, video games and gaming strategies have infiltrated much of our daily lives.

If you're not doing anything, go ahead and check out the Around the Coyote Gallery site. the exhibit runs through July 26.

So Libertyville's own Corporeal was the band that played the totally awesome rendition of the Halo theme last night at E3. i figured since they're a relatively local band, I'd give them props and congratulate them on a job well done. check out their myspace page here, and i hope someone from the band drops in to say hi........

then and now, PC edition

First off, I'd like to say that i REALLY enjoyed the new Transformers movie. I didn't expect to like it, but as summer movie fare, it kicked ass, for reals....

I'm old enough to remember having the original Transformers toys, and one thing bugs the hell out of me. I remember having Megatron, with his skinny-ass folding legs. He could barely stand on them, because it was poorly balanced. I remember his entire body being made of metal, a big difference from all the other Transformers who were made of cheap plastic and chrome. This is what i remember.

I have no idea what the fuck THIS is. Seriously, what does he transform INTO???? a flying space turd?? Megatron is a GUN. i know it's not PC to have guns in a PG-13 movie, but dammit, he went from a gun to a generic mecha "thing"!!!!! WEAK!!!!!!!!!



anyway, i just wanted to get it off my chest.
