Tomorrow morning (early) my family and I will be on a plane to Disney World. We’re spending a week there, and I’ll get to see it for the first time as I only could being married to a former travel agent who specialized in Disney trips. I’m really looking forward to it (except the part [...]
I just got The Orange Box, but I haven’t played it yet. I keep reading things on the internet and hearing things people tell me that make me want to start it, but every time I actually sit down to play it, I find I feel like playing Mass Effect instead. I’m really enjoying Mass Effect.
Pick your flavor: gross, funny, or sad/stupid.
Most people I know think squrrels are cute, or at least don’t mind them much. Now I understand why people consider them pests. Maybe they could be more, though; maybe they could be… weapons?
Forgot to mention here the awesome deal I got at Toys ‘R Us last week. In the ad last week they were offering a $25 gift card for buying Super Mario Galaxy. I figured I would get it anyway but was intending to wait, until I saw that. My wife had also clipped a coupon for a [...]
I just got back from an advance screening of the new Disney movie, Enchanted. Going into it I had seen the previews and I wasn’t expecting that much; it seemed like it would be that stupid kind of try-too-hard comedy that you find in movies like The Animal. I was pleasantly surprised; it is over-the-top, but [...]
Many funny news articles recently: A man in India marries a dog. Reminds me of the Indian woman who married a snake a while back. Great Britain searches for a new motto; hilarity ensues. Citizens have suggested some excellent options. A bug is found in the software controlling a change machine. It’s only a slight [...]
So I read about how Assassin’s Creed has been getting some bad reviews. I just picked up my preordered limited edition copy today, and I haven’t played much of it, but so far I think it is pretty fun and very impressive. The production values are amazing. But I’m not really posting here to talk [...]
This is what sports should be like. Remember making all those jokes about full-contact chess? Well the joke’s on you1, now! What’s next, Go Wrestling? Seriously, though, pretty interesting for the fact that it encourages people to improve more than one aspect of themselves.
Well, after reading this, Call of Duty 4 has now been added to my Christmas list as well. There are so many good games coming out, it’s a little daunting and worrisome. When will I have the time to enjoy them all?
Over at Next Generation, a column just went up by Mr. Biffo, which has me riled up enough to respond.
Yesterday I read this interview with Valve’s Eric Wolpaw. I had never heard of him before, but now I’m a fan. I did skip some chunks of the interview to avoid Portal spoilers (unfortunately I read some anyway but not much can be done about that now), as The Orange Box is on my Christmas list. This [...]
