  1. Figured I'd say a few words about Mindjack

    by , 22 Aug 2011 at 02:38 PM (PepsimanVsJoe talks about random games.)
    In the far future man has developed a means of mind-control. Instead of merely being able to force someone to bring them a drink of water, this technology has gotten to the point where the most everyday of citizens will pull a gun out of their rear-end and engage in battle if somebody gets the bright idea to invade their skull. Also we can expect to see cyborg-primates, giant robots, and a multitude of other oddities.

    Mindjack is a third-person quasi-competitive shooter. What's the ...

  2. Two days at Comic Con

    This past week I had the chance to spend Thursday and Friday at Comic Con in San Diego. It was only the third year I have attended but it keeps getting crazier. More and more people, more and more lines, and most importantly... more and more shit to buy.

    I didn't want to bog down the thread with pictures but I did want to share a small sample of pics I took so I decided to make a blog entry. If you have the chance to attend, I would recommend it. Whatever you are into, it is represented ...

  3. Comic Jumper

    I found an old muffin in my backpack once: A forgotten breakfast gone undiscovered for how long? I couldn't remember. It certainly looked appetizing enough through its Saran Wrappings; a cornucopia of sweet glaze and blueberries. I think nuts may have been involved. Point is, shit was looking good and I was hungry. I slowly unfurled the flimsy plastic and brought it to my nose for a cautious sniff, its sweet scent eagerly filling my nostrils. That was all I required, we were good to go. ...

  4. Do You Know the Definition of Insanity?

    Do you, asshole? It's primarily a legal term describing a mental illness that is so severe the patient either finds it hard to distinguish reality from fantasy, cannot conduct his/her affairs due to psychosis, or is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behavior.

    It has nothing to do with repetition, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, or Mark Twain. Books, movies, video games, and people who believe themselves witty need to find a new fallacy to beat into the ground.

  5. Not Dead!

    Well, if you've been watching the news, you might have heard about the record setting storms and tornadoes in my area of the world.

    Well, I'm not dead! And no tornadoes have hit my stuff (that I know of).

    The storms got worse like an hour after my last post yesterday. At around 3, something went wrong with the power grid and my county and most of the counties around it were without power. And it was off until like 2 or 3 am? I'm actually surprised we got it back. ...

  6. Old PSMs, Game Informer....from 1997!

    I love going to thrift stores, which takes up a lot of my weekends. I love shopping in general, but shopping at thrift stores always yields the strangest finds. This last weekend, I found a huge lot of old video game magazines. That's not too rare in itself, usually you can find a few GamePros and things like that sitting around. This lot was strange though, the PSM magazines went back to issue #1, from 1997. I sat in the thrift store for about 45 minutes, looking through all these old issues, old ...

  7. How to Get Rid of an Unwanted Roommate Part 2

    Continued from Part 1

    The Five Stages of Grief

    In 1969, Elisabeth KŁbler-Ross outlined what she described as the five stages of grief. Jess, as if she had a checklist, went through each in cartoonishly exaggerated fashion.

    The first stage of grief is denial. Jess arrived home that night at about 6:45 PM, to find the doors locked. I was on the other side of town at the time. She called me, threatened to call the police, and hung up. Immediately after, ...

  8. How to Get Rid of an Unwanted Roommate Part 1

    Itís been a trying couple of weeks.

    For the last year and change, Iíve been living in a large six-bedroom house, with six other people, mostly musicians and other creative types, which Iíve generally found to be a great situation. One roommate in particular, a 28 year-old waitress and aspiring photographer named Jess, has slowly become a problem for the house, with more roommates finding themselves avoiding the common areas of our home on her account.

    This began back ...

  9. Knights of the Round

    Replaying the arcade version of this on the PS2 Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2.

    I never saw it anywhere in the arcades back in the day, but I rented it at least three or four times on the SNES. Never could beat it on the SNES, with the limited continues and two-player support (arcade version allows for 3 players).


    What a bitch this game is to beat. ...

  10. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 Part 6: Done.

    The warrior struggled hard, but through his hardship he finally reached the top of the mountain. He had obtained the victory that he fought so hard to earn, yet all he could do was sit and shed a tear for the journey was now over.
    I don't know where that quote comes from. I heard it from my cousin years ago and it's something that has always stuck with me. Sometimes the excitement in life is the anticipation of an event, not the event itself.

    Not so with Sonic the ...

  11. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 Part 5: Shadow the Hedgehog Part 2 & Final Episode Part 1

    The urge to simply type, "Fuck, fuck, fuck~!" is extremely high, but I'll do this proper.

    Following the epic of entries 1, 2, 3, and 4, we are now on part 5 of this mess.

    Fuck, fuck, fuck~!

    Paint the world with tweets.

    Another day, another play session of Sonic 2006. Let's see about finishing off Shadow's episode today.
    It's good to see the Silver fight is even less balanced with Shadow. Well done, @Sega.

  12. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 Part 4: Shadow the Hedgehog Part 1

    The continuing tragedy continues, since part 1, 2, and 3 just weren't enough.

    I was hoping to finish Shadow's episode within a day and just compile a single entry, just like I had with Silver. Unfortunately for Shadow, he's not Silver. No, our spunky black hedgehog is still hanging onto his "be like Sonic, but with bruting instead of attitude!" dynamic like it's 2001 and, well, I think I may be getting ahead of myself...

    Since Twitter seemed to have lost ...

  13. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 Part 3: Silver the Hedgehog

    Since I already blogged about this, not just once, but twice, I figure I might as well keep blogging until I wrap this game up and call it done.

    I'll get my tweets out of the way first,

    Day 3 of playing Sonic 2006. Started Silver's episode. Silver is actually a lot of fun to play as. So is Blaze.
    "That took too long!" complains Silver at the end of an annoying boss fight. "Couldn't agree more." I reply in my head.

  14. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 Part 2

    I wrote about my starting adventures in Sonic 2006 yesterday. At the end of last night, I put the disc back into the case and assumed the next person to feel it's wrath would be Mzo.
    Today, my curiosity got the better of me. "How much worse can this actually get?" I kept thinking. "I'm already 30% in! How long could it take to wrap this up!?" also crept into my head.

    Once again, I'll let my tweets do most of the talking...

    Oh, Blaze, how

  15. Where to next?

    Long story short, I am waiting to hear back about a job at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. Notification about acceptance to said job is supposed to be by November 26, and I have yet to be contacted about an interview, so i am starting to fear I may not have gotten the job. Though I may be a little premature in my doubt and fear, I am beginning to feel the stress of trying to figure out exactly what am I going to do with my life next.

    Ok, so not so much long story short, but I ...
