pardon the spelling mistakes.......
Learning- or better still, thinking up- names for fart types is a
traditional early-adolescent ritual. Similarly, methods of identifying
the source of a fart are a subject of peer-group, or tribal,
speculation, the usual rule of thumb being "Who smelled it, dealt it,"
or "The smeller's the feller."
Occasionally, this oral tradition has acheived the level of Xerox
publication, but never before has a systematic analysis, along the lines
of Jane's Fighting ships or A Field Guide to the Birds, been attempted
in print. Tentatively, then, we present the following.
Blind Farts: Traditional noiseless reekers. (Expression since circa
1880 - see also "SBD's").
Boomers: Full-throated, rousing explosions; the parent orginism
since the past 2 weeks have been quite slow for the PC release wise i just might pick up Splinter Cell:Conviction and Serious Sam HD The Second Encounter......although Splinter Cell: Conviction didnt receive that good ratings on the PC i still wanna see what the game is all about and i also played Serious Sam: The Second Encounter when it came out wayyyyyyyyy back in 2002 so it will be nice trip down memory lane with improved visuals and some new enemies.......but need to get through Just Cause 2 first.....
my intern made me listen to this theme and i am hooked on it.......i just cant get enough of Halo's theme, the electric guitar version which i think is from Halo 2......ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
looks like its going to be another slow week of releases on the PC.......all i saw were Rocket Knight (a 2D Platformer), Heroes of Newerth (an RTS that has gotten mixed reviews, Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer (expansion pack, useless if u dont have the original)and finally most probably Batman: Arkham Asylum: Game of the Year edition (in 3D)......nothing much to get excited about.......
i dont know why companies bother....making games based on movies and i dont know when companies will learn......they suck at making games based on movies......the latest sucky movie based game to join the ranks of the sucking games is Iron Man 2.....Gamespot gave this game a 4.0/10 while IGN gave it a 5.1/10.......game companies really need to take a lesson from Batman: Arkham Asylum that u dont need to tie in a game with a movie to make it a hit...in fact 'untie' the game and the chances of having a hit are more......
yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy......the review is finally done and submitted to HG for putting the final touches and making it posting ready :D
so expect to see the review for the PC version of GTA: Episodes from Liberty City soon on our website. I would have posted the review on my blog but i want my reviews to be part of the site.....so i guess you will have to wait a bit more :)
my weekend is almost up :( .......had a nice one though....saw the movie The Losers and liked it....check it out if u are in the mood for an action movie.......
yeah i gotta work alternate saturdays which SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!not much planned for the weekend anyway....hopefully will be done with the review of Episodes from Liberty City (PC).....other than that gaming (as usual...still got Just Cause 2 to blast through), a movie maybe, saw Valentine's Day yesterday and enjoyed it, maybe eating out.....
