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...

Weekend Scraps: Black goat of the ROCK! (9/12/08-9/14/08)

I picked up Rock Band 2 today, as I'm sure many of you did, and have immediately set to work ingesting as much of the experience as I can. It would have been nice to get a full four players together for the afternoon, but it wasn't meant t...

Nokori: Soundtracks galore tonight!

That caught your attention, didn't it? Maybe I should use it for the header for Nokori from now on, just so you guys all know to pay attention. Let's get into this then, shall we? First up is this past week's ranking charts. Once again, Rhy...

Scraps: Takin' it in the Bushidō (9/11/2008)

I went ahead and bought Samurai Shodown II from Live Arcade last night. I already have the game for my Neo-Geo arcade cabinet but it would be nice to have somebody to play it with from time to time. You know what I've realized while playin...

Scraps: Good food is too easy to find (9/9/2008)

The grocery store is a really dangerous place for me. See, I love to cook and wandering through the aisles of a supermarket always gives me ideas for various things I could whip up in the kitchen. It takes practically every bit of willpower...

Nokori: Use your drill to pierce through the Heavens!

I just got done watching Gurren Lagann. Nothing else matters right now.But, since I can't just make that a post and be done with things, here's what's going on in Japan:There's some new DLC coming out for Phantasy Star Portable on the 11th,...

Scraps: Typing with one hand (9/8/2008)

I only have one hand to type this out with and it's really slowing me down. No, it isn't because I've been drooling over Haggar's moustache. Community member Qalamari sent me one of those kickass Fallout 3 hand puppets from PAX and I can't ...

Weekend Scraps: Strange bedfellows (9/5/08-9/7/08)

I had a real "WTF?!" moment this weekend when I heard some celebrity gossip about Pamela Anderson dating Michael Jackson. A pairing like that doesn't seem possible as I'm pretty sure that they aren't the same species. Not that I t...

Nokori: A free to play FPS in Japan? Interesting

I tried writing this article in Google Chrome, and it was less than pleasant. I thoroughly enjoy the browser for its speed, but the lack of plugins (namely Speed Dial and Rikaichan for me) make it nearly impossible to quickly translate Japa...

Scraps: Science must be stopped at all costs (9/4/2008)

I love science. The advances in my lifetime alone that have improved nearly every aspect of how I live are downright staggering. Sometimes science starts to travel down a path towards ruin, meddles with things that man was not meant to unde...

Nokori: Greatest Hits edition already?

News happens in Japan, or so my RSS reader leads me to believe. The problem is, it's not always headline-grabbing news. Sometimes it's squid heads for Street Fighter Online or an XNA conference. So it's not really worthwhile to make each st...

Scraps: There is not an echo in here (9/3/2008)

I was playing some Castle Crashers over Xbox LIVE tonight with Colette and my woman. Having never taken a second person online over the same 360, I was pleasantly surprised to notice that I wasn't hearing the old ball and chain's voice thro...
