Who wants to see some new Venture Bros?

Well the wait is finally over, screw that Sunday shit. Adult Swim provides and shamelessly I take all the credit for the first episode of the highly anticipated season 3 of the Venture bros. I would embed but they... I mean I did not provide an embed code. I watched the whole thing and they get things off to a good start in my opinion. Sorry for the short ass blog I just wanted to beat the others to the punch.   read

Alice


Every once in a while you see a movie, while not explicitly violent or sexual or whatever is still creepy as all Hell. A Czech version of Alice in wonderland, creativity titled Alice is one of those movies.

Alice in wonderland is a bit creepy on it's own, as are many of the things Disney made movies about. This version is a mix of live action and stop motion. I know what you are thinking,"w
Whats so bad about stop motion? You mean like Robot Chicken and shit right?" Well this is a bit different. Where Robot Chicken uses toys and clay Alice uses dead animals. Let me repeat that, ALICE USES REAL FUCKING DEAD ANIMALS! The white rabbit it a stuffed rabbit that eats its stuffing out of a hole in it's chest(coincidentally where it keeps it's time piece).

It doesn't stop there when ever a character talks it zooms in on Alice's mouth while she narrates the whole bizarre thing! She even turns into a creepy doll.

Overall I get the impression that a creepy man made this movie and he wanted it to seem really deep. Watch it you you thing you may get a kick out of it, i did. But I would not consider it a good movie by any measure.   read

If you love it change it:Pokemon

The first time I played Pokémon I was hooked. My best friend gave me a copy of Pokémon Blue and a red Gameboy Pocket for my birthday/ a get well gift. I started playing immediately. I had wanted Pokémon for a couple months at that point and was the last kid in my class to get it. For the next year and a half all that mattered to us was Pokémon. My favorite game in the series was yellow by far. I liked the new graphics, getting all three starters in the course of the game, the Pikachu, and the minigames. Having a more direct relationship with your Pokémon really seemed like a good idea to me. One of my main complaints was that Pikachu was the only Pokémon that would follow you.


If you have ever watched the show then you will know that a Pokémon battle is far more complex in real time. I don’t mean to say that turn based combat sucks but a real time Pokémon game would kick some major ass. Imagine this, a Wii game where you run around as a trainer (that may or may not be made in a character creator) like in the traditional games, but when a battle starts is when the changes start. Your party leader, lets say a Bulbasaur, enters the battle. Instead of the standard menu based combat you control Bulbasaur. You can run around a 3-D environment and use your 4 attacks like they would in the show. For instance if you use razor leaf on the Charmander you are fighting he could just use a fire attack and destroy the leaves before they even touched him. The possibilities for combat like this extend beyond stuff like that. A Pokémon who could jump or run fast or whatever could have some interesting advantages. The Pokémon would feel more like the Pokedex described them.

I would also like to see the game be a bit more open ended. Lets say for instance you are an evil son of a bitch who likes to take things that don’t belong to you. Then join Team Rocket! Steal other peoples Pokémon and send them to Giovanni, or even take Giovanni’s position! If the breeding thing seems good to you then become a breeder and watch Pokémon have sex!(sicko) Like in yellow I would like all the pokemon to have a personality like Pikachu. His mood and attitude would change based on what you did. A Charmeleon is a little punk bitch? Then let him act that way. The attitude/ personality type could even effect how the Pokémon develops.

Also screw those new Pokémon, it’s the original 151 all the way, but that’s a matter or personal opinion I suppose.
Thank you so much for reading!   read

New MGS 4 Trailer

A new MGS 4 Trailer just went live and it actually made me less excited about the game. The trailer makes it look like some generic summer blockbuster. They even have that same announcer guy. Who ever made this trailer really dropped the ball imo. I realize I am setting ym self up for a disappointment with my hype for this game but I don't care.

First MGS 4 Review (via Kotaku via OPM UK)

I was browsing Kotaku when I stumbled across their coverage of the UK version of OPM. Surprise surprise the completely unbiased magazine with no reason to be favorable to a major playstation game gave it a 10 out of 10. The "review" even comes with what may be a spoiler.

Possible spoilers below, don't read pic if you don't want to see a possible spoiler. It's not my fault if you read it now!








While I think all reviews, especially those from console specific magazines, should be taken with a grain of salt this is exciting news. June 12th is not all that far away anymore and I am looking forward.   read

NVGR: Plasmatics

I was looking through my old music collection when I saw a name that screamed epic videos, The Plasmatics. The lead singer for the plasmatics, Wendy O. Williams(R.I.P), has a well earned reputation for insane stage theatrics. She chainsawed cars in to, blew shit up, and took her top off all in the name of Rock and Roll. For me the most over the top thing she did was the music video for The Damned. If you dont dig the music skip to about 2:35 and watch until the end to see what a real woman looks like.

Six String Samurai



The other day I subscribed to NetFlix because the DVD selection in my town is shit. I was looking in their instant section when I saw one of the most entertaining movies I had seen in a while, Six String Samurai. Basically in the late 1950's Russia bombed the hell out of America and the last home of democracy was Las Vegas. Elvis was named the king of Las Vegas, but shortly before the beginning of the movie he died. Now all the Rock and Rollers are competing to take his throne. The movie follows one Rock and Roller, Buddy.

The fight scenes are good for what according to NetFlix is an independent movie. Overall I thought it was a cool stylish movie with a god awful ending.   read

$995 copy of Earthbound 1 on Ebay

Yes, you read that right. Ebay user dr_curtis is hawking what he claims to be one of three known English copies of the Japan only Fanicom classic Earthbound/Mother. The seller provides several pics of the physical game itself and screen shots. I think it seems legit but the price is a bit steep. What do you all think?



Sorry for the low content post, I just thought some of you may get a kick out of this.   read

LateNightLulz: Pole Position.

[embed]72660:8543[/embed]
Lately I have been building up my collection for the best sister ever the Super Nintendo (Wooo Wooo). The main role playing game classics I am missing are Chrono Trigger, Super Mario Role Playing Game, and Earthbound/Mother(tell yours I said to stop calling). I will probably get each game eventually, I just want to know which is the best so I know where to start.   read

Old Video Game Stuff and Addiction

Over the past few months my Retro Gaming collection has grown exponentially. This is a sign of my weak will and desire to validate myself through material possessions like some sort of whore. I picked up a R.O.B., a Power Glove, a 2600, a copy of final fantasy III(3), and a second NES in the past couple months. What is wrong with me!?!?!? Am I the only one with this problem? Does owning these things make me as cool as I think they do?   read
