Hype Machine Activate!

I was reading a comment on my entry about Too Human being a recovery tool for WoW addicts and how people have these insane expectations of games because of the hype machine. Now I'm not gonna say that i don't listen to the hype cause i do. But most games are a let down because of it.

The same publications that do huge articles about how much we have to look forward to this game or that game, end up bashing it in the end.

Perfect example is all the hype that was going around MK vs DC , we pretty much all know the game is gonna suck. The problem is with the huge success of Dark Knight people will probably spend their hard earned money on it purely to play as Batman (lets also be realistic here the best part of Dark Knight was in no way Batman himself) .

Sometimes i just want to read a preview that goes like this "We expected this game to be great, it had a great developer , it had a great publisher, blah blah blah... but it just sucks. I would suggest not even paying attention to this."

Now granted some people claim one mans trash is another mans treasure , but video game land doesn't work that way folks. For the most part a sorry game is a sorry game.

It's like having that boss that is always optimistic about your job.. sometimes you just want to tell her "SHUT UP BITCH THIS JOB BLOWS AND YOU KNOW IT!"   read

Too Human a cure for recovering WoW addicts?


I played World of Warcraft for roughly 3 years. After two years of rocking a Warlock and Warrior, I found myself playing a Paladin when the expansion came out. I lost alot of interest with the game as it became less fun and more work. So I've let my account stay frozen for about 6 months now and am itching to play it again. But i found some relief in the Too Human demo which was released on XBOX Live a while back.

Maybe it's the Loot, and finding those nice shiny blue items of random mobs, or it's the tiered tech trees. Either way i've bonded over this demo with a few people who like myself are recovering WoW addicts and they also agree that it's a nice way to ween yourself off it.

Though the game doesn't hold the same type of community aspect as WoW does, maybe Silocon Knights and Microsoft will realize what they have waiting for them if they decide to make the next installment massively multi-player.

I've also read quite a bit of bashing about the gameplay mechanics and I see where they are coming from but at the same time would those expectations be there if it wasn't as over hyped?

This is one game I personally can't wait to get a hold of and thankfully I only have to wait a very few number of days!

To bad there aren't any skimpily dressed Nightelves or Bloodelves running around...   read

Fashion is Underrated

Call me a metro sexual, but why do i feel that guys seem to have pretty much no sense of style?

I mean I was at work yesterday and some guy my age (25 for all the ladies out there) walks in and he's wearing some really short red shorts. These were not by any means biker shorts or jogging shorts. These were full on cotton red shorts, to go along with those fantastic shorts the guy was also sporting a t shirt with a wolf on it.

For a second i thought to myself "My God, what the hell happened to you?!?!?!" I personally have no problem if you want to dress for comfort, but i don't need you to wear shorts short enough for me to be scared your junk is going to show!

Now to moving on to the shoes and socks, first off if you are gonna wear calf high socks with shorts... don't leave the house. Also if you're gonna be wearing shoes with Velcro on them and you're not 60+ or 5 and under please please please learn to tie some friggen shoe laces.

so for those of you out there reading this while wearing your wolf t shirts and Velcro shoes..

Please for the sake of my mind and the health of others please stop!   read
