Wow, what a bitchin’ night. Earlier tonight, I saw, for the first time, Night of The Living Dead. While I had always heard great things about this movie, and knew about it’s cultural influence (all you RE fans should kiss Romero’s feet), I never had the opporitunity to see it. And, thank God, because tonight’s experience was the best: I watched it in a ACTUAL theater, surrounded by movie nerds, who thought the movie was as ridiculously awesome as I did. If you’ve never seen it, I HIGHLY recommend you see it. And, if you ever get the change to see it in a theater, please do so. Also, since this morning, I've had the battle music from Lost Odyssey stuck in my head, and it's made everything I did today that much more epic.
And with that behind us, on to the recaps! Tonight, we’ve got a great addition to the Monthly Musings blogs, opera virtuoso Topher Cantler, and 2 visits from our wonderful robot overlord.
I recapped the cblogs and I Jizzed. In. My pants.
*-Ok, wow (and perfect after the film I saw this evening); How the economic down-turn and RE/RE2 are very similar. Great job!
*-Fantastic new art from GrumpyTurtle, with the most awesome triceratops EVAR.
*-Sharpless has a great new blog (The Gentleman Gamer), and shows us an editorial from that site talking about all the hate Dante’s Inferno is getting.
*-My vote for a front-page Monthly Musings: reminiscing about the greatest gaming-comic series ever, Sonic the Hedgehog (and all spin-offs of said comics and cartoon shows).
*-What a great piece: Jonathan Holmes and his Wii bias blogs about why THIS is the best time for gamers.
*-And my second vote: Expanded universes within video games.
*-A great little series I’d like to point out here: The Obscurer Tribune, home of all off-beat gaming news.
