CBlogs of 6.24.2008

Knockin' boots with your recap: Quick, dirty and finished up early. I have something else I need to be doing tonight, so I'm giving you the recap now. Also means I don't really have time to do Zimmerisms. Hopefully, I can get something up ...

 
 
 

Wii Would Like To Play with Sick Kids

Nintendo is going to be putting Wii "Fun Centers" into childrens hospitals throughout the US and Canada. Currently, the goal is to get 500 of them into the hands of sick kids by the end of the year and another 750 thereafter. They sound ...

 
 
 

RetRose Tinted: Popeye

Rose Tinted is a regular feature of my Cblog, in which I re-examine games that we have fond memories of and see if they still hold up. If you have suggestions for titles to be featured in the future or ideas on how I can improve the column...

 
 
 

CBlogs of 6.23.2008

Well, I hope you all had a better day than I did, as I suffered through an inexplicable problem with Firefox not wanting to load any Google applications. It's fixed now, thanks for your concern. The whole thing has really put into perspecti...

 
 
 

Review: Elements of Destruction

I think this game may have slipped in under everyone's radar this past Wednesday when it was released on Live Arcade, since I haven't heard anybody mention it. I'm a bit of a demo whore, however, so I gave it a shot and then spent several...

 
 
 
 

On the Table: Gobblet

CBlogs of 6.18.2008

Christ. Sorry it's late everyone (particularly the two of you bitching down there), but I wound up with killer seats to a baseball game tonight and decided to shirk responsibility until later. How was I to know Sterling was gonna announce a...

CBlogs of 6.16.2008 + Zimmerisms

I am back from the Great White North and in full effect! Despite the 40 degree temperature increase upon my return from Canada-da-da, it's good to be home. I'll tell you a little bit more about my vacation after the recap. In fact, I thin...

 
 
 
 

Microsoft Replacing Gamer Pics?

There's a leak that's been floating around the internet over the weekend regarding a new feature for XBox Live which may be announced at E3: Avatars. As you can no doubt see from the above image, they're pretty much a blatant rip-off of t...

CBlogs of 6.1.2008

Remember when I said you wouldn't see me doing the recap for three weeks? I lied. lemon couldn't do it today, so I'm filling in for him. And here it is. Have a good one. *- You'll probably disagree with me, but I think this is great *- Th...

 
 
 
 
 

F*** YOU DVDDESIGN - The Finale Video

The long odyssey is at an end and I've learned many things. I discovered the hard way that you can't take love for granted, that it must be cherished, else it might leave you. There are things in this world for which there is no easy fix an...

 
 
 

CBlogs of 5.28.2008

It's hump day! And it's time for your recap. This is not only my last recap for the week, it's my last for a couple of weeks. I'm headed up to the Great White North and I'm really going to miss doing this. It's hard enough being at home sur...

 
 
 

F*** YOU DVDDESIGN - Day 30

Darious called a few hours ago, said he'd heard something that might relate to my GTA IV on a police scanner and was on his way to check it out. I, too, hopped in my vehicle and drove to the location, a construction site on the other end of...

 
 
 

CBlogs of 5.27.2008

Too worn out and irritated by the (still reasonably small amount of) fail in the blogs today to really have much to say. And I'm depressed about Bionic Commando ReArmed being pushed back. And my GTA... well, you think you know somebody and ...

 
 
 

F*** YOU DVDDESIGN - Day 29

More updates on the GTA IV front. Darious found the location where my game is working and followed it after it left. I'd have raced right over to him, but I have this nasty tendency to leave my phone set to vibrate for days after meetings. ...

 
 
 

Bionic Commando ReArmed gets delayed

I am a sad panda today. It seems that Capcom won't be getting the remake of Bionic Commando out for it's scheduled release at the end of the month, citing bug fixes. I've been highly anticipating this title since its announcement. On the...

CBlogs of 5.26.2008

Today's recap is brought to you by Windex. And now, on with the recap. *- Oooh, Dtoid pins. Do want. (brecksher) *- Cowzilla3 sacrifices his pride for science S- What'd You Get? M- Yggdra Union needs to make item finding easier (Gen ...

 
 
 

F*** YOU DVDDESIGN - Day 28

Darious has found more information on my missing GTA IV and I haven't been able to stop crying since I saw it. I mean, having sex on camera for money is one thing, but that's nothing in comparison to the degradation it must feel about this ...

About Rodney Dangerfield:



The mere inclusion of Rodney Dangerfield can vastly improve anything. Films, music, toasters, anything. In particular, the force of Rodney Dangerfield could elevate video games to the level in which they are accepted by the mainstream as a true art form, bringing together people of all races, creeds and tax brackets in peace and harmony.

RIP Rodney.
