I got myself some sweet ASS! (Pics Inside)

Here's a pic of the sweet ASS I got. Damn it feels good to be a gangsta.

I traded in a few games at my local Play N Trade at got $108 in store credit (when I bought an NSider card) so I picked up MASS Effect and ASSASSins Creed. I basically got 2 games for $22 (10 for the card and 12 extra for ASS Creed). If I had had 60 extra bucks I would have got Rock Band but I didn't have the money so... here I am. Cblogs have been slow so figured I would share my stories of PlayNTrade and how it is not as cheapass as Gamestop when it comes to trade ins.   read

Squeeze All The Charmin You Want

Mr. Whipple, a grocery store owner who had people problems, died today. Here is the full story from vdeo game related but I really liked Whipple)

"Dick Wilson, the character actor and pitchman who for 21 years played an uptight grocer begging customers "Please, don't squeeze the Charmin," died Monday. He was 91.

The man famous as TV's "Mr. Whipple" died of natural causes at the Motion Picture & Television Fund Hospital in Woodland Hills, said his daughter Melanie Wilson.

Wilson made more than 500 commercials as Mr. George Whipple, a man consumed with keeping bubbly housewives from fondling toilet paper. The punch line of most spots was that Whipple himself was a closeted Charmin-squeezer."
BTW I want housewives to fondle my toilet paper if you catch my drift.   read

Rock Band=Wired Guitars?

Shed a tear Xbox 360 owners, as the bundled guitars in the Xbox 360's version of Rock Band will not be wireless. Yes, while your friends are beating on the drum kit or screaming into the mic, you won't be able to dive off of your couch into a pile of empty pizza boxes and spent soda cans while rocking out to "Blitzkrieg Bop."

The news comes from Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos via the OXM podcast, reasoning that Microsoft's proprietary wireless technology is too expensive. With worry that the additional cost would slow sales of the already high priced bundle, Rock Band's makers decided instead to use traditional wires. We tend to disagree with this decision, as you can't put a price on freedom of movement when you're rocking out.

This news is a blow to the Rock Band for the 360, as the game will have wireless guitars on the Playstation 3, and Guitar Hero III will be available with wireless axes on all next-gen platforms. Hopefully for 360 owners, Harmonix and Microsoft will be able to work out a deal in the future.
007 sorry about my last post.FAIL   read

Microsof...I mean Apple Surface

Savant, a company that makes many touchscreen products for the home, is going to release a coffee table 40" touchscreen that is integrated with iTunes.

The table runs Rosie, their touchscreen software, and is powered by a Mac hidden within the table. It will access a user's music, photos, movies, and provide home automation functions.

Oh, and it totally stole its name from Microsoft's Surface.   read

Xbox Messenger: The Un-wrappening

I got my hands on an Xbox Messenger Kit a few days before the commercial release on Tuesday, and I wanted to share some photos and thoughts with you. Nice of me, eh?

Here is the mini-keyboard in all it's boxed up glory:

I checked out the keyboard... Here's how your controllers mate:

Two have become one in a glorious union of souls and bodies:

It snaps right on to your controller and basically does exactly what you'd expect. Also, although you can't see this in the picture, the keys emit a little bit of light, for in-the-dark playing.I admit it looks a little awkward, but it's surprisingly easy to get used to.
Works great!   read

Jessica Alba Has a Wii?

A rumor was recently posted on the website "The Skinny Website" that actress Jessica Alba (Sin City, The Secret World of Alex Mack) keeps her wraith-like figure with the help of the Nintendo Wii.

The site offers no sources for the rumor, but points out, "More than likely, this is just another marketing ploy to sell more games and systems. But you never know…" Hey, The Skinny, as far as I can tell, your site is the source of this rumor, so you should know whether it's true...

But speaking of the veracity of the Alba/Wii claim, I can tell you, for a fact, this is truth. Jessica Alba is playing a Wii at my heavily armed compound right at this moment.

I keep track of her with a closed circuit camera so she won't cut and run. She's finishing up Metroid 3 as we speak.   read
