Okamithon: The next gamer charity drive

I'm planning to run a gamer charity drive, playing Okami from beginning to end in one sitting, whilst growing carbuncles on my rear end. I plan to donate the proceeds to cancer research. I need advice on how to set that shit up, because it'...



I was at my local thrift store today, and looking at the gaming shelf, I found a copy of Uniracers, the SNES game Chad will burn down the Nintendo offices over. The game was IN BOX, with everything, and priced at 99 cents Canadian. So, of...


The Flaws in the Ten Point Scale

WARNING: CEREAL BUSINESS The ten point scale is intrinsically flawed. Not only because Killzone 2 got a 7 from Edge (THOSE MICROSHITTING FAGTARTS SHOULD BE HUNTED DOWN AND KILLED! -CTZ), but because the 5/10 isn't average. If it were aver...


I'm writing a Final Fantasy VI musical!

After putting Scarf on the backburner for a short time, I've decided to do something else creative: FINAL FANTASY VI: THE UNOFFICIAL MUSICAL! This is a result of listening to Joseph, Avenue Q, and A Shoggoth on the Roof whilst playing FFV...


Scarf: Developer Interview

I've decided to give some more information about Scarf the artgame that I'm making. I shall be doing it by interviewing myself, even though Robert Summa seems to have the "talking to yourself" market monopolized. Ian: Why did you decide ...


Scout Update: The Force-a-Nature

The Scout's new weapon, The Force-A-Nature, has been announced by Valve. It will replace the scattergun, but functions differently. It's a two shot shotgun with a LONG reload time, and knockback. You can also gain altitude when firing it in...


Scout Update: Shamwow

Hi it's Scout with Shamwow You'll be sayin wow every time you use this towel It's like a chamois it's like a towel it's like a sponge A regular towel doesn't work wet - this works wet or dry This is for the house the car the boat the RV S...



So, I've been checking the Scout update page every half-hour recently, and it was finally updated. The result: BONK ENERGY DRINK! It looks like it will give the Scout a temporary speed boost, and it might restore some health. Full info can ...


What is a Villain?: Ray

That's the dictionary definition, but how about a specific one: Ray, from Breath of Fire 2. I know that most of you haven't played it, given that it's very much a cult series. I found it on the Wii's virtual console for 8 dollars. If you ...

Imported lootz get!

So, browsing through my local comic/game shop, I came upon a stuffed Yoshi. Being a huge Yoshi fantard, I took a look at it. Seeing the tag, I knew it was rather special, given that it was in Japanese. As in, completely Japanese. So I picke...


Club Nintendo Errors

So, I decided to register mah shit with Club Nintendo, also known as "Club: We hate the core gamer demographic, but we pretend not to by making this club", but it hasn't worked so well. First of all, I don't have all of my serial numbers ly...


I Bought Things!

It was my birthday on Sunday, but I didn't get anything videogame related. However, I did get fucktons of ye olde cashe muneez. With some of it, I bought some shit. The Full List: 1. SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 2. Classic Controller 3. Exp...


Sonic and The Call of Cthulhu Announced

Sega, the company that has consistently fucked up the Sonic series, has recently announced the next in the Sonic Storybook series, and will now be raping the works of HP Lovecraft with their furry bullshit. I'm sure the game will be terribl...


Phirst Impressions: Phantasy Star 2

As some of you may know, I don't buy physical games for my Wii much anymore. I think the last game I bought was Metroid Prime. So, I'm enjoying games that I missed due to not being phucking born, because I missed out on the golden age of ga...


Me Self Indulgently Whining (Somewhat NVGR)

This is just going to be a short blog where I whine. Feel free to leave. I won't be offended. Anyway, now that those jerks are gone, I'm upset about some stuff I just heard about and that happened to me. 1) Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is probabl...



I'm sorry I missed running Diablo II FNF. My network crashed, and I only got it up today. Check back next week.


Diablo II FNF: Week 1

I've decided to start a Diablo II FNF Group. It'll start at about 7:30 Pacific Time, and will end when something interferes with the game. It's going to be on the US West server, and it'll start at about level 6. If you want to join in, jus...


Goodwill for All Men

Actually, the find was at the Salvation Army Thrift Store, but that doesn't sound as good. Anyway, I found a PS1 with four controllers, two of which were wireless, all required cords and in perfect working condition, for $10. This is kind...
