Scraps: Sea kitten goes well with a dry, white wine

Let's not beat around the bush. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals rank up there with Heaven's Gate and the Manson Family in terms of sheer, batsh*t lunacy. We've been hearing a fair bit of them in gaming-related news lately, s...

Scraps: No time for love, Dr. Jones

Not a lot of time tonight, I'm afraid, so this is going to be a quickie. I have to get packing for the trip up to CES and I haven't done a damn thing yet. I even have laundry yet to do. I'm so screwed.Anyway, here are stories that we didn't...

Scraps: The hammer is my penis

My copy of the Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog DVD arrived from Amazon today, and it's incredibly good. Nevermind how incredible the three act supervillain musical starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day is. I mean, it's...

Scraps: Everyday I'm Twitterin' (12/08/2008)

I did something last week that I swore to myself would never happen. I signed up for a Twitter account. The whole thing always struck me as being horribly self-indulgent and egotistical. Who the hell could possibly care about what I'm doing...

Scraps: I suffer for you (12/05/2008)

All of my friends are in my living room, laughing and playing Rock Band 2 right now. It sounds like they're having a really good time, once they figure out what songs they're going to play.What am I doing? Putting together your scraps post ...

Scraps: You're heavier than you look

Nick Chester's review of Prince of Persia pushed me over the edge and made me break my sacred vow not to buy any more games this year. Like many, I was concerned about the lack of death, fearing that it would convey a sense that there was n...

Scraps: Papa's Got a Brand New Bag (12/01/2008)

I've been giving a lot of thought recently as to how I could improve the Scraps column. Don't get me wrong, I've always believed that it provides a valuable service to you in giving you bits of leftover news. There was always something miss...

Scraps: WTF are Scraps? (11/24/08)

Been a while, hasn't it? Well, I'd like to blame that fact on how exceptional our news coverage has been of late. And that's exactly what I'm going to do. Why, there's been nary a thing to put in one of these posts for weeks now. Rest assur...

Scraps: Charitable donations (10/14/08)

My local NPR station has been running one of their pledge drives today. Thankfully, they're a little more considerate than in some markets that I've heard and try to limit the length of the drive to as brief a period as possible. This time,...

Scraps: I can't be objective about World at War (10/13/08)

Why not? It's probably because I'm bloody awful at it. I wasn't much good when it came to Call of Duty 4 but this is just depressing. I'm lucky if I can kill half as many times as I get to press the respawn button. If you want an opinion on...

Scraps: This is gonna kill Hamtaro sales

Local news is really funny. As I was watching Heroes tonight (Hiro's "key" is WIN), my local NBC affiliate news had a promo for what we could expect to see on tonight's program. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet because it's...

Weekend Scraps: What was I doing again?

I'm having one of those nights where I'm finding it hard to get anything done. The work is piling up around me and I can't even work up the motivation to procrastinate. You know what helps me get through those times? Damn. I was hoping...

Scraps: One door opens, 500 stay locked forever (10/1/08)

This post is probably going to seem pretty stupid to you (excluding the news links at the end, which are AWESOME... sorta). You've been warned.Something occurred to me today while I was fiddling around with Silent Hill: Homecoming. There ar...

Scraps: Quality TV watching (09/29/08)

Do you guys watch Heroes? I was concerned about the show after the way the last season went but it looks like they're getting back on the horse. Hopefully, they can keep things intriguing without bogging it down with too much complexity. H...

Weekend Scraps: Hey Mr. Record Man (9/26/08-9/28/08)

This weekend, The Minibosses and MC Frontalot were in town. Well, The Minibosses live here, but that's neither here nor there. They were performing at a party for Kingdom of Loathing Con V (which was also open to the public) and, as expecte...

Scraps: This is how the hype ends (9/25/08)

Let me tell you how my morning went down. I spent the whole night prior working on various posts and playing LEGO Batman for review while I waited for the day's news to start circulating. Then, the venerable Jim Sterling and I watched the c...

Scraps: Impalement! (9/24/08)

The other week, in Scraps, I posted a link to a charity drive called Extra Life. Hosted by Sarcastic Gamer, it's an attempt to raise money for pediatric cancer by getting gamers to solicit pledges and participate in a 24-hour gaming maratho...

Scraps: Holy Denmarkian Bricks! (9/23/2008)

The LEGO series of games are highly endearing, you know that. I absolutely loved LEGO Star Wars when it came out and still like to pop it in from time to time and have a run at a few levels just for kicks. I don't like Star Wars but I found...

Nokori: Nintendo's lineup continues to make me cry

Hopping back into the swing of things with Japanese news, the major CEDEC event is over, and those stories are impossibly long to translate. I haven't yet worked up to translating thousand-word documents yet. So for now, here are some easie...

Scraps: All work and no play (9/22/2008)

I don't really have a lot of time tonight. If it's any indication of how busy I've been, I have only had the opportunity to play through a single level of Mega Man 9. Shameful, I know. I'd wish for more hours in the day, but I know I'd jus...

Weekend Scraps: Like Christmas Eve (09/19/08-09/21/08)

I'm so excited about Mega Man 9 releasing on WiiWare tomorrow that I've started formulating a Blue Bomber holy trinity in my head. It makes sense when you think about it (in a highly obsessive manner completely devoid of reason; insert snar...

Scraps: All revved up and no place to go (9/17/2008)

This is probably going to further label me as being old and out of touch with what the kids are into, but I really love Jim Steinman. You'd probably know him best as the guy who wrote every good song that Meat Loaf ever recorded (with the p...

Scraps: Energy reserves are low, Captain (9/16/2008)

I'm really tired right now, as an event scheduled far earlier than my usual sleep schedule accommodates forced me to eschew the comforts of my bed last night. This means that my already limited capacity for wit, charm and continence is pret...

Japanese folklore still tends to be pretty mystifying to the average westerner, but I still find it hilarious how out of their way some marketing teams went to remove any cultural identity from the Left: Pocky & Rocky, Right: the Japanese
