CBlogs of 4.22.08


Sorry this is coming in a little later than usual tonight. Goddamn, what a phenomenal day this has been. Announcements of new Earthworm Jim, Splatterhouse and Tecmo Bowl? Be still my heart. And we had some really great blogs come through, including the very best introduction I think I've ever seen. Your recap awaits, ladies and gents.

Oh, before I forget: I scored a code for the Metal Gear Online beta tonight. Since I don't have a PS3, I might as well pass it on to one of you. If you want it, convince me in the comments why you should have it and I'll give it to whoever's the most convincing.

*- Workmeng is awesome

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.
