  2. My Gaming Mission

    This is my first ever blog as I don't often feel a need to talk about personal shit online. This seems like the perfect place to ramble about gaming matters, though, especially ones that don't necessarily suit a regular thread format.

    While I have always loved playing and reading about video games, over time I decided that wasn't enough for me and my relationship to this medium. I look at this industry with all its talk on the internet and I get this urge to fix what I see as its biases, ...

  3. MvC3 = OMGWTFBBQ Fighting Awesomeness

    Nothing else needs to be said. This game is going to sell like crazy on Day One.
  4. Single Player

    Sometimes it's hard getting people to come see a movie with you. It could have something to do with the types of movies I watch. I guess not everyone is into seeing a talking zombie baby popping out of its zombie mother's womb. These are just some of life's realities.

    The same thing happened to me with video games. I remember learning to play an import of JoJo's Bizzare Adventure and eventually becoming really good at it. I brought it out once in my social circle and played it for ...

  5. SSFIV Tourney Mode = Major Disappointment.

    So after weeks of waiting, Capcom released the free DLC for Super SFIV and it turns out to be total crap. When it was first announced, I predicted the Tournament Mode would offer a lot more substance. Instead, we get a poor man's version of Endless Battle where the true distinguishing feature is the trophy .jpeg offered to the victor.

    Whoopee. No achievement. No leaderboards. Just a virtual pat on the back for becoming the king of the hill.

    I feel they put as much ...

    Dear Diary,

    I slept most of the day (yesterday), since I was up all night (before last) trying to catch up on work again. We went to Stone Mountain in the evening for a friend's birthday. When we started to play frisbee a youth group rushed the field and discouraged us from throwing for too long. So we ate some "cake", which was kind of a large eclair, made of brioche and filling. I wonder how hard it is to come up with new animation for the laser show here; they've been ...

  9. Dear Games, RE: Last Night.

    So last night was pretty crazy right? You said you heard some of the real popular kids were using motion controls and you wanted to spice up our relationship. I decided we'd give it a shot, and then you whip out all of these old moves that we all saw last year. If this is where our relationship is going, I think it's time we take a break. It's not me, it's you.

    Remember when rhythm games were niche? Now look at them, every Tom, Dick, and Harry has a music game out. Some good, ...

  10. Y'all Got Them New Xbaks?

    The phone rings.
    I muster up all the possible enthusiasm that I can and answer with a dead pan monotone, "Game Craze"
    "Yo! Y'all got them new xbaks?"
    "The one that was just announced that it is shipping to retailers and will be available by the end of the week?"
    "Nah man! They just said it's out today"
    "Nah man. They just announced that it is shipping to retailers and will be available by the end of the week." ...

    Dear diary,

    Yesterday wasn't terribly eventful. I tried to catch up on work for the majority of the day, since I ended up so far behind this week . We went to my sister's for Sunday dinner, and played Rock Band for a couple hours. I'd never played drums before, it's hard!

    See you tomorrow!

  13. Post Coital

    I've never seen the reason to have these things. Most people just are not that interesting, and have nothing interesting to share unless they heard/read it from some other far more interesting source.
    But we all want to be noticed.
    We all want attention. Especially those of us who say we don't.
    The only things even remotely interesting about my everyday life are the people who frequent the game shop I work at.
    So I plan on filling this space with pictures and anecdotes ...

  14. Importing (blogs, not games)

    So, it's nice that we have TNL blogs now but I already have Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, etc. I'm not sure what I would write in a TNL blog that wouldn't already go into one of those places. Should I just copy and paste from those other places? Wouldn't that just be redundant?

  15. In the Mouth of Radness

    The last few years have been a bit of a blur. Playing with your perception of reality can do that to a person. So here I am, older, wiser and concerned about how I spend my free time. I love a good video game every now and then but I also love having a place to live and a bed to share and good coffee to start every morning. Glancing at an issue of EGM or Play will always bring a rush of memories. The squandered paychecks and the joy of unwrapping a fresh new game. Inhaling the new plastic smell ...
