PAX Attendees - Come with me to the museum

Last year, while wandering around the city on the night before PAX, we decided to go and have a look at the Space Needle. Little did I realize that, directly beneath it's towering form, lies the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame. An...

 
 
 

Would anyone like to buy my PAX pass?

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I am in possession of an extra 3 Day pass for PAX. If there's anybody who's going to attend the con but hasn't purchased a pass yet, I can save you a little time standing in line. I'm sure I can sell it to...

 
 
 

RetRose Tinted: Cutting Room Floor

A little while ago, I posted my RetRose Tinted column up on the front page. It's about my birthday and Chuck E. Cheese. The whole experience made me a bit of a sad panda. There was a chunk of the post that took out because it was kinda ...

Darious Pickman Dreamcast Contest Winner

There weren't a ton of entries. I think some people might have been scared off by the competition. Still, I got some neat photoshop jobs and a truly revolting fapfiction from TheBez. The winner, however, should be obvious to everyone. Ha...

 
 
 

CBlogs of 7.7.2008 + It's My Last One

Three months ago today, I joined the Recap Team. Now, I bid it adieu. A fuller explanation of why I'll no longer be helping out with this follows your recap. I will say this now, it has been an absolute pleasure and joy to have done this...

 
 
 
 

On the Table: Gold Digger

Samba De Amigo Wii Gameplay Video

As a very late adopter to the Dreamcast, I totally missed out on the first Samba De Amigo. The game always held a good bit of interest for me, but the custom controllers aren't that easy to find and there's plenty of other music games on ...

 
 
 
 

Halo Board Game? Uh-oh.

I love board games and I'm somewhat fond of Halo, this should be a match made in heaven, right? Ehh, not so much. First of all, if you guys think licensed videogames are bad, try playing a board game based on a film or videogame. Half o...

 
 
 

CBlogs of 7.2.2008 + Changes to Recaps

Shortage of picks tonight, and I'm not sure why. There was good stuff, but I've kinda been in a funk today for some reason. But, a meal out with the woman and some exceptionally good news I've received have really recharged my batteries. So...

 
 
 

I Feel Like a Jerk

I've been doing the recap for the last few hours (it's coming soon) but I can't believe I didn't see a post about this. Today was king3vbo's birthday. I even pulled the above image early this afternoon to make a post and then just totally...

 
 
 

CBlogs of 7.1.2008

PROTIP: Being on FAILCAST will destroy any sense of time or responsibility that you ever had. Sorry this is a couple of hours late and, frankly, is full of drunken comments from me. When you wind up on FAILCAST, you start drinking yourself ...

 
 
 

RetRose Tinted: Amagon

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 6.30.2008 + Zimmerisms

Okay, wow. Seriously, this is the most mind-blowing day I've seen on the blogs in a long time. We've had both major levels of awesome combined with a near equal proportion of fail. And then there was a ton of stuff that just fell in betw...

EA Sports Gives Wii Its Own Line of Games

EA has announced that they have special plans in the works for Wii gamers, reworking their sports lineup into a dedicated brand. Intended for "players of all skill levels", this pretty much settles the rumors regarding peripheral-based pl...

 
 
 
 

XBox 360 Price Cut?

Wedbush Morgan analyst/foghorn Michael Pachter seems to think it's a sound move on Microsoft's part to do so. Citing that their current price point advantage is no longer managing to keep Microsoft's sales ahead of Sony, both in Europe an...

 
 
 

The Price of Boobs in Age of Conan?

I don't think I've seen anything about this posted on Dtoid yet, but I just read something about a certain level of gender bias in the Age of Conan and it got me thinking. It seems that the attack animation of a specific character class r...

 
 
 
 

Recap Notes and Google Hates Me (NVGR)

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.
