american gods, for free....kind of......

i guess you'll have to sit in front of your monitor to read the book Neil Gaiman's giving away for the rest of march..... it's a pretty good book, and worth the time.

damn, superman......

you broke my heart, clark......why you smoking crack with the hulk??
why are you even hanging out with the hulk????


big things

so after a bit of research, i bought a new car last night. a '08 Mitsubishi Outlander, and it's fucking loaded. that's why there's been no activity on this blog for a few days, so....there.

i also bought N+ for XBLA, and it's great, but i'm stuck at episode 14. it's hard as HELL.

and i think i've finally convinced my wife to give me "permission" to buy a PS3.

yep, the recently announced 80 gig Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle is just what i was waiting for.....it even includes the DualShock 3!!!! a fucking deal!!!

(but i'm really getting it for the blu-ray drive.....nevermind the fact that my brother got one this weekend, and has been rocking Resistance....)

Joker Smash!!!!!


Headtracking, FTW!!!

this video starts off slow, but boy does it get good. you'd think Nintendo would of thought of this before, it IS their tech and all.... but kudos to this guy, he's invented ( or discovered) a badass way of simulating 3-D spaces without using goofy glasses. and oh, wait.....



he's going to be RICH.

Street Fighter 4 trailer

finally, a clear look at some of the revealed characters in Street Fighter 4. Abel looks kind of shitty, and all the characters look like they've been hitting the 'roids pretty hard. but the game looks beautiful in motion, and anyone who says that this game can be ported to the Wii is koo-koo.

arrrgggghhhh, too cute!!!!!!

This baby hates pears, but he can't stop eating them! It's like he thinks they're going to taste different every time and they never do. He's the most optimistic baby ever.

Epic win.

yeah, it's almost 10 minuits long, but it's one of the most elaboratly produced Metal Gear videos you're ever going to see. the setups for this series of ingame photos from Metal Gear Solid 3 are nothing short of godlike, and whoever made this is the biggest MGS fan on the planet. for reals.

and don't miss the last one, it eats babies....


damn, robin. you fucked up.......

this is the end, my friend. the end.

so i'm climbing up the endless stairs up to my deluxe apartment in the sky, when i start to hear a strange whoop-whoop-wooo sound. it's pretty loud, but i figure someone in the building i live in was celebrating something, or maybe some kid had found a secret stash of pudding. i get to my floor, and as i open the door, i realize that the woop-woop sound is coming from MY apartment.

and it's my wife.

She's howling at the fact that she just completed Rock Band on medium. now, this is a person that hasn't finished a console videogame in ever, as in NEVER. (those pesky Phoenix Wright games are the only DS games to be finished) she was genuinely happy to have gotten past all the songs, and even 5-starred the bonus tour songs and the 8 downloaded songs, too!! I walked in as the final notes were being pounded on, and was able to see the achievement unlocked pop-up for 50 gamerscore. and this got me thinking........


i think this blog has run it's course.

when i started it way back when in 2006, i honestly thought my days as a semi-hardcore gamer were numbered, and after i got married they would just end. she mentioned more than a few times that she thought videogames were a waste of time, and that she'd never get into them, and i believed her. i was pretty sure that once we started living together, my favorite hobby would eventually get sidelined by other stuff. well, that hasn't happened, and if anything, less time playing videogames make me more appreciative and more demanding of the quality of the games i choose to spend time with.

what i wasn't ready for was her slow evolution into a casual gamer first, then a Rock Band disciple. it started with my selection in 2006 to be the Nintendo Wii Ambassador. one of the things they did was send me a black DS lite, and i bought Brain Age and Clubhouse Games with a quickness. my wife's a biological science major, and she really liked Brain Age for it's memory-training and Clubhouse games for those diabolical sliding puzzle games. it was weird, but i was happy she at least was playing with the DS, even though it wasn't a mario, zelda or metroid title... then came the Wii Party, and she got a first hand look at the magic Nintendo can bring with their new system. she was keeping an eye out for the Fedex guy on the day i got the package from Nintendo, and watched quietly as i unpacked and played around the first day. then we started playing Wii Sports, and that was the beginning.......

fast forward one year, and she's got all 3 Phoenix Wright games for the DS, a bunch of records in Wii Sports that i'll never beat, and her own gamertag. she likes Katamari Damacy, Loco Roco and even watched me go through most of The Darkness. and i even think a latent achievement hunger is beginning to rear it's head. she asked me about the Guitar Hero achievement for completing the tutorial, and mentioned that she'd get it because it was an easy 5 points......yep. as i'm typing this, she's just started on a new solo vocal career in Rock Band.

i don't think i'm endangered anymore.

so now what?? i just can't change the blog name, and i have too much fun doing this to stop, so......what????

want. WANT NAO!!!!!

this really is the bee's knees.



and don't even think of clicking on the "fun with fetuses" link.

seriously.

2 hands to hold you.....

i've never been surprised at the lengths that some gamers will go to give themselves a competitive advantage, whether it's using a turbo controller or cheat codes or some other kind of help. ( i knew a kid who played counterstrike with crosshairs etched into his monitor) that's where this Xbox 360 controller mod from HG Controlers comes in. it has the face buttons (a,x,y,and b,) mapped to the bottom of the controller, in addition to the RB button. after thinking about it for a bit, this really might help in FPS shooters, but not much else. either way, it's being sold as a Halo 3 mod. wonder if anyone actually has this, and whether it's any good.



they also make a toggle switch mod for the controller, that acts like a on/off switch for a continuous button press. don't really see the advantage in THAT.

oh well, i'm not buying it.

and no, i don't know why i posted this.

covet

i don't play pc games. yeah, i know about Crysis and the like, i even tried World of Warcraft for a brief moment, but for the most part, it's the one segment of the gaming spectrum that i don't participate in. and for the most part i'm ok with it. except when i see hot shit mods like this one for Call of Duty 4 that are badass. tossing in a Ion Cannon like the one in Gears of War (except that you can't move the beam around in real time, only aim in one spot) is a stroke of awesome.

and what makes me a sad panda is the fact that i'll NEVER play a game with this on ( unless it's added as some kind of DLC)

damn.

hey, the Halo 2 flag toss is back!!!!

ever since halo 3 came out, i've noticed (as i'm sure everyone has) that the old "toss the flag" move that came in so useful in Halo 1 and 2 was nerfed for Halo 3. the flag drops like a rock as soon as you "toss" it, and it's impossible to move with the flag like before. so this video surprised me today, showing how to get the move back (sort of). yeah, i know this might be old as hell, but it's new to me, so go kiss a pickle.

this is how you win superbowls

by being a tenacious motherfucker. this was the best play of a boring ass superbowl, and from this point on, the game got really really interesting.... the Pats let the game get away from them in the last minute, and choked....kind of reminds me of a certain northside baseball team......

big 'ol stinky pile of cheese


this is the bestest present a Zelda-loving nerd can give to his Link-obsessed girlfriend. when in close proximity to each other, the shirts glow full hearts, but when you get farther apart from each other, the hearts begin to drop. how unbelivably cheesy.

but the couple who would wear this would make super-uber-geek-fanboy babies!!!!
