It wasn't supposed to be like this...

It happened. Not even the power of the Autobot Matrix of Leadership could protect it but there's good news and bad news. The bad news is it happened the week before Halo 3 comes out. The good news is that I have a friend who is willing t...

About LostCrichtonone of us since 4:50 PM on 12.02.2006

Sometimes I get the feeling that I am a robot sent from the future to have relations with all your appliances....on a more serious note if anyone out there knows a one armed dentist please give him my Myspace page url because he may be my real father and I long to finally meet him. I enjoy all kinds of theremin and calliope music and adore eating cheese, carrots and apples but not at the same time and not always in that order. On the weekends I sit on park benches and talk to complete strangers to compile what will eventually become the greatest American novel in the 24th century. While the thought of cottage cheese sitting on a kitchen counter frightens me, I am excited by the prospect of combining honey and jello in a swimming pool as a summer vacation spot. I dunno about hardcoreness but I've got my own fair share of games, consoles and accessories. Video games, anime and anything British or Japanese pretty much combat boredom from setting in. My loves are expensive habits but then again so are cigarettes and gourmet coffee. I prefer action titles and FPS's but I dabble in the occasional Japanese dating sim and lose my self for weeks in RPG's. I am blessed with a wife who is into games almost as much as I am...almost. I also have a 15 month old daughter who likes swinging the Wii remotes around and shotput them towards expensive electronics. I have yet to buy a PS3 because I am waiting for MGS4 and the new Killzone, meanwhile I likes to get my gaming fix with a healthy dose of Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 with a small dash of DS and PSP while I'm on the go. I love indie made games because they have the balls to push the envelope...in some cases rip the envelope in two, wipe one part with its butt; take the other out on a nice date and back to his place and in the morning never call again, bury them both in a shallow dug grave and pour kerosene down the hole for a fire dance. But at my heart I'm a sucker for those classic retro standby franchises...damn you Wii VC for sucking my wallet dry with mediocrity and promises of better days!!!! I have mad robot love. Praise be unto the Astronaut Jesus and have a Good Day!
