Geon Cube is more super and Pac-Man than Super Pac-Man

3:00 AM on 09.30.2009 // Jonathan Holmes

Have you heard of Geon Cube? Yeah, I didn't think so; I hadn't either until I got this press release. That lack of press alone probably spells doom for this game. No matter how great it turns out, people aren't going to buy it. No one wants to take a chance on a new puzzle game these days, unless ofcourse it's built into Facebook, or it has an awesomely meaningless name like "Snood" or "Wiggletwats".

That's the main reason I'm worried about Geon Cube; the name. The game basically looks like a kick-ass new Pac-Man game, complete with 4-player versus mode, power-ups, and simple but gratifying combat. If Geon Cube were called Pac-Man Wii, it would be sure to sell a million copies easy, but without that brand recognition, I fear for the title's chance at survival. Worse, when people suspect that a game may be a worthless clone of a game they already like (like Pac-Man) they tend to make a point to ignore it. 

Well, I'm going to get Geon Cube when it comes out Oct. 20th, even if I have to jump through some hoops to do so. How about you? You interested in this?

Oh, and a video and full press release are available after the jump.

So uh, my dream was interesting. Travel somewhere to get furniture, protests going on, police lock us behind a gate so we go round and blow up their car to escape. Now apocalypse time with city on fire and zombies and then I get a girlfriend.Quite varied!

I watched the movie Flight with Denzel Washington last night. It got especially good once John Goodman appeared and it turned into a sort of fun, surrealistic drug comedy. But then the ending undid every bit of enjoyment it gave me up to that point.

The story in Destiny seem kind of crummy. I feel like I'm missing something here. It doesn't really click. Taken King however seems pretty good though.

Quick note for Soul Sacrifice Delta: Sony designed it weirdly, and so while most of the updates should come in by downloading the newest update, other stuff you might not get unless you hit this on the main menu. Don't miss out!

Love, Lost, Live, Lost (2014) - Yesterday was me and my girlfriend's 16th year anniversary together, so I decided to share this song. It deals with being in love, losing that person, moving on, and learning to love again. It's 9 minutes long, too :P

So I'm hearing the UN called Japan in to discus "Banning the sale of video games or cartoons involving sexual violence against women " Which by Anita's standards = any Violence able to be done. Japan sent a 40 page long NO back to the UN in reply.

Just got home from Deadpool and ... it's not good. I liked the jabs at Green Lantern and the previous movie Deadpool, but that was about it. The rest was just painfully forced dick jokes. Wife fell asleep.
