CBlogs of 5.19.2008

A little later than usual tonight, I'm afraid. The search for my missing GTA IV has been consuming all of my time and, to be honest, I'm exhausted. But I'm supposed to hearing from Darious later tonight, so I'm hoping he has new information.

In the meantime, here's what went down in the blogs today:

*- I adore this Metal Gear Solid intro (CyberVR)
*- And people say we play games because we want to experience violent realities (JACK of No Trades)
*- Another awesome booster pack of Dtoid cards from The GHost
*- I realize how stupid this is, but I can't wipe the wry smile off my face

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.
