Scraps: I can't be objective about World at War (10/13/08)


Oct 13
Why not? It's probably because I'm bloody awful at it. I wasn't much good when it came to Call of Duty 4 but this is just depressing. I'm lucky if I can kill half as many times as I get to press the respawn button. If you wan... read

Scraps: This is gonna kill Hamtaro sales


Oct 06
Local news is really funny. As I was watching Heroes tonight (Hiro's "key" is WIN), my local NBC affiliate news had a promo for what we could expect to see on tonight's program. I haven't had a chance to watch it y... read

Weekend Scraps: What was I doing again?


Oct 06
I'm having one of those nights where I'm finding it hard to get anything done. The work is piling up around me and I can't even work up the motivation to procrastinate. You know what helps me get through those times? Dam... read

Scraps: One door opens, 500 stay locked forever (10/1/08)


Oct 01
This post is probably going to seem pretty stupid to you (excluding the news links at the end, which are AWESOME... sorta). You've been warned.Something occurred to me today while I was fiddling around with Silent Hill: Homec... read

Scraps: Quality TV watching (09/29/08)


Sep 29
Do you guys watch Heroes? I was concerned about the show after the way the last season went but it looks like they're getting back on the horse. Hopefully, they can keep things intriguing without bogging it down with too muc... read

Weekend Scraps: Hey Mr. Record Man (9/26/08-9/28/08)


Sep 28
This weekend, The Minibosses and MC Frontalot were in town. Well, The Minibosses live here, but that's neither here nor there. They were performing at a party for Kingdom of Loathing Con V (which was also open to the public) ... read

Scraps: This is how the hype ends (9/25/08)


Sep 25
Let me tell you how my morning went down. I spent the whole night prior working on various posts and playing LEGO Batman for review while I waited for the day's news to start circulating. Then, the venerable Jim Sterling and ... read

Scraps: Impalement! (9/24/08)


Sep 24
The other week, in Scraps, I posted a link to a charity drive called Extra Life. Hosted by Sarcastic Gamer, it's an attempt to raise money for pediatric cancer by getting gamers to solicit pledges and participate in a 24-hour... read

Scraps: Holy Denmarkian Bricks! (9/23/2008)


Sep 23
The LEGO series of games are highly endearing, you know that. I absolutely loved LEGO Star Wars when it came out and still like to pop it in from time to time and have a run at a few levels just for kicks. I don't like Star W... read

Nokori: Nintendo's lineup continues to make me cry


Sep 23
Hopping back into the swing of things with Japanese news, the major CEDEC event is over, and those stories are impossibly long to translate. I haven't yet worked up to translating thousand-word documents yet. So for now, here... read

Scraps: All work and no play (9/22/2008)


Sep 22
I don't really have a lot of time tonight. If it's any indication of how busy I've been, I have only had the opportunity to play through a single level of Mega Man 9. Shameful, I know. I'd wish for more hours in the day, but... read

Weekend Scraps: Like Christmas Eve (09/19/08-09/21/08)


Sep 21
I'm so excited about Mega Man 9 releasing on WiiWare tomorrow that I've started formulating a Blue Bomber holy trinity in my head. It makes sense when you think about it (in a highly obsessive manner completely devoid of reas... read

Scraps: All revved up and no place to go (9/17/2008)


Sep 17
This is probably going to further label me as being old and out of touch with what the kids are into, but I really love Jim Steinman. You'd probably know him best as the guy who wrote every good song that Meat Loaf ever recor... read

Scraps: Energy reserves are low, Captain (9/16/2008)


Sep 16
I'm really tired right now, as an event scheduled far earlier than my usual sleep schedule accommodates forced me to eschew the comforts of my bed last night. This means that my already limited capacity for wit, charm and con... read

Weekend Scraps: Black goat of the ROCK! (9/12/08-9/14/08)


Sep 14
I picked up Rock Band 2 today, as I'm sure many of you did, and have immediately set to work ingesting as much of the experience as I can. It would have been nice to get a full four players together for the afternoon, but it... read

Nokori: Soundtracks galore tonight!


Sep 12
That caught your attention, didn't it? Maybe I should use it for the header for Nokori from now on, just so you guys all know to pay attention. Let's get into this then, shall we? First up is this past week's ranking charts. ... read

Scraps: Takin' it in the Bushidō (9/11/2008)


Sep 11
I went ahead and bought Samurai Shodown II from Live Arcade last night. I already have the game for my Neo-Geo arcade cabinet but it would be nice to have somebody to play it with from time to time. You know what I've realiz... read

Scraps: Good food is too easy to find (9/9/2008)


Sep 10
The grocery store is a really dangerous place for me. See, I love to cook and wandering through the aisles of a supermarket always gives me ideas for various things I could whip up in the kitchen. It takes practically every b... read

Nokori: Use your drill to pierce through the Heavens!


Sep 09
I just got done watching Gurren Lagann. Nothing else matters right now.But, since I can't just make that a post and be done with things, here's what's going on in Japan:There's some new DLC coming out for Phantasy Star Portab... read

Scraps: Typing with one hand (9/8/2008)


Sep 08
I only have one hand to type this out with and it's really slowing me down. No, it isn't because I've been drooling over Haggar's moustache. Community member Qalamari sent me one of those kickass Fallout 3 hand puppets from P... read

Weekend Scraps: Strange bedfellows (9/5/08-9/7/08)


Sep 07
I had a real "WTF?!" moment this weekend when I heard some celebrity gossip about Pamela Anderson dating Michael Jackson. A pairing like that doesn't seem possible as I'm pretty sure that they aren't the same specie... read

Nokori: A free to play FPS in Japan? Interesting


Sep 06
I tried writing this article in Google Chrome, and it was less than pleasant. I thoroughly enjoy the browser for its speed, but the lack of plugins (namely Speed Dial and Rikaichan for me) make it nearly impossible to quickly... read

Scraps: Science must be stopped at all costs (9/4/2008)


Sep 05
I love science. The advances in my lifetime alone that have improved nearly every aspect of how I live are downright staggering. Sometimes science starts to travel down a path towards ruin, meddles with things that man was no... read

Nokori: Greatest Hits edition already?


Sep 04
News happens in Japan, or so my RSS reader leads me to believe. The problem is, it's not always headline-grabbing news. Sometimes it's squid heads for Street Fighter Online or an XNA conference. So it's not really worthwhile ... read

Scraps: There is not an echo in here (9/3/2008)


Sep 04
I was playing some Castle Crashers over Xbox LIVE tonight with Colette and my woman. Having never taken a second person online over the same 360, I was pleasantly surprised to notice that I wasn't hearing the old ball and cha... read

Scraps: Night-time, sniffling, sneezing, coughing (9/2/2008)


Sep 03
It seems a lot of people wound up catching something really nasty while at PAX. I keep hearing stories from people suffering from sore throats, sinus problems and headaches. I got a bit of it, but my incredibly masculine immu... read

Scraps: Nick Chester is too busy to do this anymore edition (9/1/2008)


Sep 01
"I'm Nick F*cking Chester. I'm too busy dominating at Rock Band and being a blogging God to pick up all the little stories that don't get written about." That's, like, the first thing he said to me when we met at PA... read

Scraps: Radically short scrappings (7/31/08)


Jul 31
So our own Tiff Chow tells us, "Hey, if you like Twitter, check out Blippr!" Like she's an advertisement or something. So I signed up, and unlike Twitter, there's menus everywhere.I spent most of the day trying to f... read

Scraps: Long Island is full of monsters confirmed (7/30/08)


Jul 30
Little know, but fun fact: I grew up on Long Island, New York. I moved away just in time to miss this thing allegedly washing up on the shores of a Montauk beach. I think I went to high school with that thing. While at the ES... read

Scraps: My coffee is cold (7/29/08)


Jul 30
Apparently there was some Earthquake in America or some other country nobody really cares about. In even more horrendous news, my coffee is cold. Here I am, staying up until dawn so I can post the Scraps for Nick, and I have ... read

Scraps: Fangs for the memories (7/25/08)


Jul 25
Fangs. Vampires and bears have them. Avril Lavigne also, apparently, has them. But not for long. The 23-year-old singer/songwriter, best known for terrorizing the Burnout Paradise soundtrack with her single "Girlfriend,&... read
