About Me:

Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.

Thou hath been smited
October 10, 2007

I was randomly jumping around sites, reading reviews, when I came across this linguistic masterpiece of provocative analysis. I present to you:

The Greatest Video Game Review

I simply don't know what I'm doing anymore. My efforts seem utterly pointless now.


We card because we care.
October 09, 2007

Every time I go to the convenience store down the block, the same little sign catches my eye. "We card everyone who appears under 30." If video game retailers used similar cautions, I wonder what age they would use. 18? 30? 60? In some cases, the age can't go high enough.

Checking IDs when selling mature-rated games has become commonplace for most game retailers, as the unemployment checks of some careless clerks have proven. All but the smallest retailers have iron-clad policies on the matter, but GameStop has its wrapped in titanium. Absolutely every person, regardless of age, has to be checked for ID. It doesn't matter if you are a WWII vet with an oxygen tank slung on the back of your scooter. No ID, no sale.

New beginnings... sort of
October 07, 2007

Goodbye GameStop!

I lasted an amazing two months there and it was one of the worst working experiences of my life. Management has serious communication issues, they rule their employees by fear, and fire people without any explanation. I wasn't fired. I quit because of the aforementioned reasons and because of the three hours of daily commuting.

I am now back at my old used-media store. It's right around the corner from my house, the owner matched my pay, and I get to buy the latest releases for ungodly cheap prices. Best of all though, I will finally have time to play games and write again. All I've had time for lately was updating game listings. It's necessary, but it's nowhere near as enjoyable.

That's about all for now.


Team Fortress 2 Trailer
September 12, 2007

Threw up a trailer for Team Fortress 2. Honestly, TF2 and Portal will be my main reasons for picking up The Orange Box. I suppose Half-Life 2 is pretty cool too.

The Oddballs of Normalcy
August 20, 2007

I was driving home tonight, listening to Muse's Knights of Cydonia and thinking of the video, when it hit me. This is genius! Why hasn't anyone made a video game out of this yet? Forget about hulking steroid-offenders with over-compensating firepower. I want to be a kung-fu fighting, robot-punching, cowboy with visions of cyberpunk maidens atop silvery unicorns.
