Sure the economy may be in the shitter, but there has got to be some poor bastard out there that is losing sleep at night, knowing that his Sega collection will never really come full circle without the entire library of the ill-fated Sega 32X.
For those of you who don't know, the 32X was an ill fated add on to the Sega Genesis. But by the time it came out, the Saturn was right around the corner, and well...the 32X sucked. But while time heals all wounds, it also brings about the nostalgia factor. And if you're a collector, sometimes buying something that you know full well will never get used, just comes with the territory.

Now that's a shit load of obscurity right there folks. And for 900 dollars, it can be yours. What say you Dtoid, anyone out there think this would be worth it? On one hand, it's an ENTIRE LIBRARY of a console, on the other hand, it's the 32X library.
So I am blessed enough to receive gifts from various game publishers, devs etc. But none of them rank up there with the care packages courtesy of Rockstar (buy GTA IV). From the epic shirt I got for the Warriors. (buy GTA IV) To the N1KO Liberty City License Plate (buy GTA IV), and even the oversized; "IV" laminate earlier this year, they just seem to have the best swag. (buy GTA IV).
I have also come across a Burger Shot shirt, and another shirt for the in game pizza company. Needless to say I have pokefever, and I have to catch ALL THESE BITCHES.
Again, thank you Rockstar. And of course, buy GTA IV, April 29, at retailers worldwide.
This is by far the most enjoyable title featured in this tantalizing hourdourve portioned version of XNA Creators Club. If you're not compelled to try this out on my word alone, then just envision Ninja Gaiden NES with the fluidity of New Super Mario Bros. for DS, with the visual grace of Okami...and the balls of Christian Bale.
That's right, I'm going there. I dub the Dishwasher with the completely inaugural, and totally erroneous award of: 2008 Christian Bales' Balls Award.
So...in summation: Stop. Download. XNA. Christian Bales' Balls.
(If they don't hand out Pulitzer's for c blog's, they sure as hell ought to start after this gem.)
As I'm sure you have read, EA is in the midst of trying, and failing, and trying yet again to acquire Take Two studios, to the tune of 2 billion motherfucking dollars.
God damn, it's obvious they are willing to throw around a fuck ton of cold hard cash to acquire studios...but god damn, I have student loan dollars to pay off, and hell, I wouldn't mind getting acquired by EA.
So, EA...if you're reading, I officially accept any offer you make to acquire my exclusive rights ...as long as your offer is at least one million dollars. I will officially change my name to to EA Zach...as long as the cash is there. I will even move out to whatever studio you want me to and work on whatever bullshit Need For Speed game or Pogo.com project you want me to...as long as you're willing to pay out that: "Scrilla".
That's right, you can officially brand that EA logo right into my ass for one million dollars American.
Sore from the delay of Super Smash Bros. Brawl? Well, in some sort of bastardesque consolidation prize, Nintendo will be launching the Black and Blue DS on February 10th, just one day removed from the former launch date of Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Expect official word on this in the coming days.
Now where's that guy who says I don't know what I'm talking about constantly?
That site that reports week old news on a daily basis actually came through today with some fresh news, reporting that Kudo Tsunoda...the guy that EA fired after EA Chicago (The boxing one), was put out to pasture. Well apparently Microsoft lowered their hiring standards and didn't let me know, because somehow Kudo Tsunoda is working with the XBOX division now. So unless Microsoft's future is in mediocre licensed fighting games, or mediocre boxing games, I am left having no fucking clue as to what brought this about.
I met Kudo back at E3 in 2005 through a friend. The guy came off as a total douchefuck, making inflammatory remarks about Knockout Kings, Ubisoft, and gay people. He managed to offend me about five times in a span of fifteen minutes, as he went through about four cigarette's.
Which brings me to my next point: What the fuck Microsoft?
Do you think bringing Don Mattrick and Kudo Tsunoda will revitalize the brand? We (gamers) HATE EA for the most part, and you're bringing on the people that have made EA the nihilistic bastards they are today. And throughout the process you have let go one of the better faces of the brand in Peter Moore, and have shooed J. Allard to a dark corner to attempt and shove the Zune down all of our throats.
Now, I'm all about the Zune, but c'mon, we all want our Allard back (at least they do over at TeamXBOX), and you're giving us a terrible public speaker in Mattrick, who has created a brand that prides themselves on yearly mediocrity. And now you bring on boxing game guy.
I don't see how letting Bizarre Creations, Bungie and Peter Moore out the door, while bringing in Don Mattrick and Tsunoda, is a good scenario in any way, shape or form.
EDIT: Oh my christ. Apparently, (According to Kotaku)Kudo is heading up the new Gears of War project...that's it...I'm done.
