Gaming History

Posted 08-17-2009 at 11:35 AM by pronounconnoun
After talking with Disgustapated this past weekend, I realize that not many of you would know my gaming history. I decided that I would make a blog post rather than a post in the Lounge since it would probably get derailed.

When I was a kid, we had most of the systems: NES, SNES, Genesis, Gameboy, and Gamegear (for a while). My brothers and I usually played the basics like Mario, Zelda, Sonic, and Street Fighter. At an early age I was drawn to Action Adventure games and tended to...

Permanently Pissed Off

Warning: what follows is a rant, quite possibly an emo rant. Yes, the worst kind. And no its not the humourous kind of rant. Unless you like laughing at other people's misery.

One of the things thats irrating...

Revisiting Fable 2

Posted 08-16-2009 at 09:45 AM by itchyeyes
Over the past couple of weeks I've been playing through Fable 2 again (I think this is the 3rd time for me). In a lot of was Fable 2 reminds of KOTOR, in that it's a game with a ton of flaws, and yet I'm mostly willing to overlook those flaws in order to get at what lies beneath them.

Alright, so it's the opening night for District 9, the movie headed by Niell Blomkamp.

Where to start... This is an excellent movie, the themes, plot, and emotional ties that this film has in it are so well meshed together that you forget that it's a movie and think of it as being real life. And once you see it you understand why.

But my critique on the film is not the reason for this post, it's more so my anger at Fox and the other movie house that were supposed to...
