Rock Band finally did it...

I don't know why this didn't occur to me when I was suddenly hearing that damn Dragonforce song everywhere...but it took the headline: "Geeks Save Rock" in reference to the new Motley Crue single being released on Rock Band to make me rea...

 
 
 
 

Trogdor to Burninate the Wii

For some reason, I decided to head over the Homestar Runner this morning to see if there were any new games up. Well, the only thing new is some sort of comic book generator, but I couldn't help but notice another link - "Wii Games" At ...

 
 
 

How technology inspires immaturity

I started pondering this yesterday while reading the newspaper, the way technology seems to bring out the inner (and extremely immature) child. The article was about automating customer service and it got into trial projects looking at cr...

 
 
 

8-bit worlds collide: Rom Check Fail

You know all those NOT ROMs for NOT emulators that nobody actually has...well, ever wonder what would happen if somehow the data in a collection of old 8-bit ROMs became corrupted and somehow the files merged? Neither have I, but apparen...

 
 
 

Jack Thompson kills judge's fax machine

With gamers revelling in the news that every video game fan's favourite attorney has been formally sanctioned, GamePolitics has posted transcripts from the trial. One part of his cross-examination for Alabama Judge James Moore really st...

 
 
 

Antlions: I hate those guys

Seriously, why do they have to be such dicks and keep brother down all the time? I think the only thing I hate more than antlions are jumping puzzles in first-person shooters...not wait, jumping puzzles combined with antlions...yeah!

 
 
 
 

Better than sex?

Spotted this on my Sunday check of PostSecret , a crazy site where people send in anonymous confessions via post card. It left me wondering how many other people are willing to admit it...

 
 
 
 

Toddler threatened by Elmo doll

Apparently some poor kid in Tampa Bay has had someone set his Elmo Knows Your Name doll to the evil setting. After changing the battery, two-year-old James' Elmo began blurting out "Kill James!" when squeezed. One of the many spin-off...

 
 
 
 

GameSpot looking for a new reviews editor

So, CNET has finally put out the call to replace all review folks who've either resigned from GameSpot or you know, were fired. Of course, the job posting is missing one crucial piece from the responsibilities section: Must ensure review...

 
 
 
 

Sam & Max: Night of the Raving Dead Review

(Note, there may be some minor spoilers in here, but any plot points I bring up occur very early in the game) Telltale's Games' latest installment of Sam and Max is out today, pitting the freelance police against a horde of zombies. I ...

 
 
 
 

Smokers can't play Super Smash Brothers Brawl

So, apparently several unlucky saps in Japan who went out last Friday to pick up Super Smash Brothers Brawl ran home and ripped off the shrink wrap only to be greeted with an "Unable to Read Disc" error. Needless to say, given the delays ...

 
 
 

Good idea, bad idea: Timed missions/levels

You've taken out the final bad guy, but a self-destruct sequence has been activated on his hideout. The whole place is gonna blow in a minute and you're got to get out NOW! Still filled with adrenaline from the final boss fight, you navig...

 
 
 
 

What does WoW do to people?

Over the past year, several friends and acquaintances have got into this World of Warcraft business. I thought nothing of it at first. Heck, at one point I figured I'd probably join in eventually. But then I noticed something...a distin...

 
 
 

What up with Nintendo and their shortages?

Seriously, Nintendo manages to run out of Wiis not for one, but two holiday seasons in a row and now it's clear there won't be enough copies of Super Smash Brothers Brawl to go around. The first Wii shortage was inevitable (even if Fils-A...

 
 
 

Bloody archaic storage mediums!!

I've nearly exhausted GameTap's supply of Sam and Max games and worst part about is I'm still not satisfied. No, I'm left with a hankering to bust out Sam and Max Hit the Road. It's been nearly a decade since I've touched it and I do reme...

 
 
 
 

Memorable in-game choice: Deus Ex

Lately I've been pondering just what it is I love about video games, especially in light of all the hate they've been getting from media pundits. What the gamer-ignorant don't seem to get and what I think most of us do is that games are a...

 
 
 

The difficulty in finding old games

It seems odd to me that I can walk into almost any generic music store and purchase a jazz album from the 40's. Or go to Blockbuster and rent a movie from the same era. But try finding a game that's more than two year's old. If it was a b...

 
 
 

My inaugural D-toid c-blog post

So, I finally decided to join this crazy crowd and for my first post, I will attempt to revive my favourite thing on the Interwebs: Michael Quest III! (Old, I know, but I used to watch it once a day...think of me what you will.)
