Die already.
July 21, 2007

Alright everyone. Get ready for the GAME OF THE CENTURY. I can hear you quivering with anticipation, but deep down inside, you already know what it is.

That's right! It's Dynasty Warriors meets Gundam! Take two franchises that refuse to die and throw them together to create Dynasty Gundam.

Ask Genj
July 15, 2007

Dear Genj,

I recently got back in touch with some old friends from high school. Despite not talking for nearly 8 years, I was amazed to find out that our hobbies and interests are nearly identical! We like the same music, comics, and video games, but there was one glaring difference.

They LARP.

I know that you're somewhat of an expert in this field, so please tell me what I should do? Can I really approach them on the subject? I don't want to lose them again. Actually, it might be kind of scary, because they play in a big group. That's a lot of foam swords and magic missiles. I don't know, maybe I could leave it be. After all, they did look pretty happy in their pictures.

Yours truly,

Losing Against Real People


Nothing like a zombie apocalypse
July 14, 2007

What is it about the zombie that is so utterly captivating? There's certainly no shortage of movies. In fact, it's about time stores had a zombie genre. No more lumping them in with the likes of Jeepers Creepers or Saw. Zombies are far too classy for that trash.

Parties are even being thrown in their honor - revelers dripping with equal parts fake blood and fake skin, and biting one another in celebration. How about a zombie bar crawl? Alcohol certainly makes for realistic stumbles and moans.

So why the near-worship level of admiration for this simple-minded creature?

Theory #1: Zombies are the physical manifestations representing our fears of losing our unique, individual identities.

Team Tourney
July 10, 2007

I noticed that we had a number of newcomers and rare visitors who did not get drafted for the Team Tournament. I just wanted to get all sentimental for a moment and tell you not to take it too hard. The limits on teams are there for a reason. We don't want to wear out the judges too badly after all. That's a lot of reviews to plow through.


Overhauling the MMO: Part 1
July 09, 2007

Everyone seems to be split when considering the future of MMOs. On one side of the debate, the cash and time investments required of gamers mean that only a handful of high-profile games can succeed. On the other side, MMOs are still getting their bearings and we have only begun to see their potential. I fall into the latter camp, but don’t call me an optimist just yet. If there is one thing that can kill the genre, it’s a lack of variety.

Jack Thompson nickname
June 24, 2007

In case you haven't figured it out by now, Jack Thompson is a media-hound. The man doesn't care about things like credibility or responsibility, so long as his pompous face keeps appearing on TV. The man obviously wants to be famous. The problem, is that every time he shows up, forums everywhere light up with "Jack Thompson this, Jack Thompson that," giving the man even more recognition. What gamers really need is good nickname to call this prick from now on. Something suitably demeaning of course. Any suggestions?
