Ahhhh... E-Love

A member of the World of Warcraft guild Death and Taxes has started an awesome thread about a sex scandal involving some members of their guild. A few of us have been keeping an eager eye on the thread over the past few hours...

Good evening. The following story is one that needs to be told, and told through pictures is a post about love, sex and scandal. You've gotta check it out - The pics are worth it. :-)

...The thread has grown from 11 pages to 19 since I started this blog. Go check it out for yourself. NSFW.   read

Prisoners do the Soulja Boy...

A few months back a video surfaced on the Internets that featured about 500 inmates doing the dance from Thriller.

Well due to 'numerous requests' the CPDRC prison facility has created a new video. This video features the same guys that did the Thriller video doing the Souljah Boy and Can't Touch This...

Something about this is just soo wrong... I'm having trouble imagining being thrown in jail for whatever reason, only to have a convicted felon come up to me and go "Hey man - You want to join our dance team?"   read

Signs of the apocalypse

I found this interesting little website that ranks the top searches in Wikipedia. Once you sort through some of the bullshit (like "Main Page" and the "Search" pages) you can find some pretty interesting info.

So what are the top searched items Americans during the month of February?

Valentines Day, Barack Obama, the Chinese New Year and... Canine reproduction?

Over a million fucking people requested information on Canine reproduction from Wikipedia between February 1st and the 23rd? Glad we American's have got our priorities straight.

Also on the list of note - "Super Smash Brothers Brawl" and "List of songs in Rock Band" which just barely edged out "Penis" for a spot in the top 45. Playstation 3, "List of songs in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock" also made the top 100.

My favorite though - There were more searches for the phrase "Anal Sex" then there were for Hillary Clinton. Horray. Take that you game hating beyotch.

The complete list of the top searches for Feb can be found here and the main page for the Wikipedia traffic statistics can be found here.

Enjoy.   read

New video game term

It is an actual TRC?



So there you have it: Quit a PS3 game by pressing the "PS" button and selecting "quit" and you've officially PS'd out. You fucking PSsy.

This term has become the joke of the week around the studio and I've heard it used in many different creative ways.

PSing Out is something you do after you've been drinking.
PSing Out is running away from a fight.
PSing Out is what you did when your sorry ass gave up on finding a Wii for Christmas

So what does PSing mean to you? Anyone feeling creative?   read

Do beginnings in games suck?

So the latest Outlook thread-that-wont-die comes courtesy of uber-professional games site Next-Gen.biz / Edge magazine whose columnist Mr. Biffo takes a minute to talk about how some of the beginnings in the latest rounds of chart toppers... well... suck.

"As I’m still working my way through the 2007 backlog, there are a couple of games I’ve been playing quite a bit of late: Assassin’s Creed and Mass Effect. Despite a mixed critical reaction they’re not bad games, but in both instances I almost gave up in the first half hour of ‘play’."

Biffo continues on to say:

"If you think of them as action movies, it’d be like opening the entire Star Wars saga with that tedious senate debate from The Phantom Menace rather than the iconic Star Destroyer crawl."

The full story can be found here in case you are interested.

To be honest, I kind of agree with him. Mass Effect took me a long-ass time to get into and after 20 hours I decided to put it down. I thought it took Skate for fucking EVER to get past the initial training stages and I didn't touch Assasin's Creed because one of my best buddies said that it was the first game that he ever actually regretted purchasing for the 360.


Remember at the beginning of Sonic 2 when Robotnik shot down the Tornado? Sonic was trying to ride all gangsta on the wing and got his ass shot down. What a fucking prick.

Maybe it's my generation of gamer, but growing up I remembered games that grabbed you by the nuts right after "Press Start." Maybe it was because a lot of the games I loved were arcade-based and designed with the old "I've got 3.5 minutes to get this kid to put in another quarter, I better make it hot" mentality. Games back then didn't need big stories to sell themselves to the player - Their game mechanics did the work for them.

I dunno - What do you think? Do the latest round of game beginnings kinda suck? What are some of your favorites in recent memory and all time?

One of my favorites of all time is still The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past. Who can ever forget the princess telling Link to get his sorry ass out of bed to come save her that dark and stormy eve? Edgy, repeating music playing. Haha - Loved it.   read

ZOMG Zelda movie!

I'm sure most of you have seen this (it has over a million hits) but it came across my radar so I thought I'd share it anyway. A couple of 17 year olds put together this fake trailer for a Zelda movie. Probably for their Telecom final.

[embed]73553:8782[/embed]

Gotta give them at least a little credit, right? It certainly sparks the "what if" question.

I mean, what if there really was a Zelda movie? Who would direct it? I wonder if Link would actually fuc*ing talk? What would be even cooler is there was this golden suit of magic armor that took movie-Link like six hours of ridiculous grinding to get, and when he finally puts it on he discovers that the armor is actually a huge piece of shit that drains his fuck**g money as he wears it around. Y'know, because that makes a lot of sense.

Oh well - Back to re-runs of Whorecraft for me...   read

Season 4 is coming, the goose is getting fat...

Apparently the WoW's PTRs have been updated with more Season 4 gear according to MMO Champion.

I'm really curious as to how Season 4 is going to work. On one hand Season 3 is just about complete if you go by Blizz' typical PVP season time frame, which would lead one to believe that it'll drop right about the same time frame as 2.4...

...Yet 2.4 doesn't seem like it is going to come out until April or so. So when you start considering an April release for 2.4 / Sunwell, along with a summer of season 4 PvP and then factor in the impending release of the Lich King in early fall (along with an increase of the level cap from 70 to 80, which if BC has taught us anything, will essentially invalidate all items pre-level 74 or so) it suddenly becomes understandable why a lot of people are talking about taking a break from WoW until the expansion is released.


Lookin' gangsta while running through Shattrath with mah Onyixia kite...

I just finally finished grinding my character to be fresh-to-death in full season 3. Perhaps I'll take a break until Lich King comes out as well...   read

New Music Monday

Here is what all the cool kids are listening to. Any bets that "Run" will appear in Madden 2009?


Gnarls Barkley: Run
[embed]73423:8746[/embed]
In the e-mail I got from their manager this past friday he mentioned that this version of the video has been "banned from MTV uk because it failed the Harding Test 58 times... serizures, you know."

And yes - That is JT at the start of the video.

Estelle - American Boy
[embed]73423:8747[/embed]
This is Estelle, a new artist signed to John Legend's "Homeschool" music label. I guess the story is that she moved to the US for a few years and "one fateful night" ran into Legend and Kanye West outside a Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles where she did an impromptu performance and handed off a demo. The rest, as they say, is history...

Can anyone explain why the fuck Hi-Tek in this video? O.o   read
