So how much more are YOU willing to pay for GREGOR without looking like a cheap bastard who orders his drink without ice so he gets more of his drink?



"I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!"

Prepare yourselves.   read

THE FUTURE OF THE 360!



My friends, as many of you know, I am, in fact, clairvoyant. These skills came upon me (hehe came) whe n I beat one of my favorite games, Psychonauts. My clairvoyance allows me to see into the future and thus I am able to predict, but not confirm, the future of gaming!

Today I intend to predict, not confirm, the future of Microsoft's Xbox 360. After a great deal of time spent staring into my crystal CRT I have come up (hehe come) with my prediction for the future of the Xbox 360. This prediction comes in the form of storage.

Dun dun dun dunnnnn..... I predict that in the near future, Microsoft will release a 160 gigabyte and 200 gigabyte hard drive for the Xbox 360.

Am I full of shit? Maybe. But just remember. I SAID IT!   read

Mafia II trailer!

[embed]39308:1302[/embed]

We found out last night that it was coming, and now here's the trailer, straight out of the Leipzig games convention in Germany. Mafia II people. The trailer itself, in my opinion, is visually stunning. Just the facial expressions alone are jaw dropping.

Give thanks to Tiscali games who either snuck in a camera or stole the footage from someone else. The dialog is in German so...there's not much to make out. I'll update this with a translation when one becomes available.

SABOTAGE: New game from GC 2007!

[embed]39308:1267[/embed]

There doesn't seem to be much information about this game yet aside from the 'Debut' Trailer featured above. Coming from Replay Studios and Gamecock Media straight out of GamesCon 2007, Sabotage is set in WWII with the protagonist of a *gasp* woman. As opposed to being a Call of Duty style game though, this looks to be more of a stealth-oriented game. Sabotage will be coming to PC and other next-gen consoles in 2008. Keep an eye out.   read

Machines strike back: RECALL!



(Good) Video games are challenging. Most of them don't try to break your limbs though. Apparently though, one of them does a pretty good job. Featured above amidst a sea of textual insults, all 150 Arm Spirit machines (by Atlas) are currently being recalled. Why you ask? Well, three rambunctious Arm Spirit players broke their arms while struggling for power with the arm jutting out of the machine.

Sadly for us over in the United States, the game was only distributed in Japan. Geez, they get everything don't they? Disappointing...but that's not what we're here for! We're here to get justice for those who injured themselves in the arduous adventure of beating that one game with a fake arm coming out of it!

Atlus spokeswoman Ayano Sakiyama said, "The machine isn't that strong, much less so than a muscular man. Even women should be able to beat it." Oh, I get it now. So you're a sexist company as well? Women have plenty of muscle from vacuuming and cooking all day. Just because someone is a woman doesn't mean that they shouldn't be able to beat an arcade game. In fact, the three people who broke their arms probably were women. You know..brittle bones. At least the devilish, sexist machines reign over the Japanese has come to an end.

Pacman is a carpet muncher



Etsy is usually a great place to find tons of wonderful game-based handicrafts. I've even bought a couple things from it for relatives, strangers, pets, and significant others. There are two problems with this however. One, I didn't find this on Etsy and two, this is FAR to expensive to be sold on Etsy.

What we have here is a quality hand-woven Pacman rug, is nice, yes? Measuring seven by ten feet, this is the rug you lay down before the fireplace before you make sweet love to your relative, stranger, pet, or significant other. Disappointingly, the ghosts only have one eye each. This is made up however by the fact that when you purchase this 1,087 monster you will in fact have two lives left.

An original, this rug is one of two in existence. I'll be buying this one, so someone else take care of the other one, eh?

A sad reflection on the current situation here in the clogs



The subject of spoilers is a controversial issue. Many an afternoon has been enjoyed by a family, bonding over the discussion of spoilers. While it has been acknowledged that it has an important part to play in the development of man, there are just not enough blues songs written about spoilers. Inevitably feelings run deep amongst the aristocracy, who form the last great hope for our civilization. Complex though it is I shall now attempt to provide an exaustive report on spoilers and its numerous 'industries'.

Society is a simple word with a very complex definition. Back when Vealinger reamarked �the power struggle will continue while the great tale of humanity remains untold� [1] he, contrary to my learned colleague Sir George Allen�s recent publication �Into the eye of , could not have been referring to eighteenth century beliefs regarding society. More a melody to societies dysfunctions than a parody of the self, spoilers is quite good.

Nothing represents every day life better than spoilers, and I mean nothing. Just as a dog will return to its own sick, society will return to spoilers, again and again.

Is unemployment inherently bad for an economy? Yes. Of course, spoilers fits perfectly into the Simple-Many-Pies model, making allowances for recent changes in interest rates.
Interest

Indisputably there is a link. How can this be explained? It goes with out saying that interest plays in increasingly important role in the market economy. What it all comes down to is money. Capitalists love spoilers.

Much of the writings of historians display the conquests of the most powerful nations over less powerful ones. Politicians find it difficult to choose between what has become known in politics as - 'The two ways' - spoilers and political feeling.

In the words of the uncompromising Bonaventure Bootlegger 'I don't believe in ghosts, but I do believe in democracy.' [2] I couldn't have put it better my self. When it comes to spoilers this is clearly true. Both spectacular failure and unequaled political accomplishment may be accredited to spoilers.
The question which we must each ask ourselves is, will we allow spoilers to win our vote?

To conclude spoilers must not be allowed to get in the way of the bigger question: why are we here? Putting this aside its of great importance, the lulz. It replenishes the self, influences the influencers, and are a joy to behold.

I shall give the final word to star Denzel Spielberg: 'At first I was afraid I was petrified. Thinking I could never live without spoilers by my side.' [3]

This is unacceptable. We need it to stop dtoid, I can't stand it anymore. This might be my last blog. I just can't tolerate this kind of intolerance and cruelty. Sorry.   read

PETA loves Nintendo!



Wow. The title screen of Peta's Super Chick Sisters alone is enough to send an email over to Nintendo HQ. I'm a nice guy though, so I decided to give PETA's foray into the video game world a chance. The general story of the game is simple, Pamela Anderson has been kidnapped by Kentucky Fried Cruelty's Colonel. It is your job as a self respecting hormonal Chicken to save Pamela Anderson from the evil grasp of the Colonel. The first cutscene was easy to follow, until I saw this.



Yeah. Apparently, Mario and Luigi fit in somewhere in this storyline. They also have Wiitis, presumably from playing with their Wiis too much. Well, I started the actual game and it seemed roughly similar to SMB. Chicks are like coins and boxes are...mushrooms. Small colonel heads with robotic arms are...goombas. Okay. I was doing pretty well until I ran into an activist.



How convenient. I knew this game wasn't for fun. It's like LeapPad! The activist only managed to slow me down however as I had soon arrived at the KFC, prefaced by...



...Now that is just wonderful. Where is Jack Thompson now? Someone forward this picture to him right now. A bucket of dripping blood. In a video game! *soccer mom gasp* The only thing that manages to bother me more in this picture are the two activists standing right near it. Entering the KFC didn't prove very difficult, the menu seems a bit unorthodox however.



I would actually LOVE a cruelty value meal. I mean, it IS only $4 after all, that's a steal! A cutscene soon followed and we were once again returned to...Mario. Luigi and he just finished going to the doctor's office (Dr. Mario -.-) and they walked outside when...




...I don't have much to say about PETT. They seem much more peaceful than PETA. No buckets of blood, no screaming, just some pictures and people. Like an orgy of informational speaking. Without the information. Mario just seems skeptical at the idea of turtle cruelty. I can't stand much more of this game, so I'll end this article on a line that looks like I finished the game.



So my friends, you can email Nintendo if you want. Instead of that, you too can try to save Pamela Anderson from an old man with a facial oil problem yourself by going to here.   read
