With E3 being so fresh in our memories here I cant decide how much time I want to spend talking about Microsoft crapping on gamers everywhere and only pandering to the big devs,hey they are people with rights too …. right? Or Sony the champion of doing nothing at all ….. hey man just chill out, relax, go with the flow and have some fun… or Nintendo, solid, steady, we present to you …. Mario, Zelda, …. more mario …. and mario!
I can tell there are some amazing game IP coming up the excitement/rage for the consoles is entertaining so yeah all in all great E3 I will be plunking down some money at some point for some fun…. yes Jeffro I still need to buy The Last of Us, looking like my thoughts on that will have to wait until payday again. But until then really I am not to worried about my gaming prospects. I have spent exactly nothing, zero, ziltch on gaming lately and have managed to play some great games when I have wanted to. Some of us Gamers do remember something that Microsoft seems to forget, to put it midly. that there are such thing as old/used games out there and you know what they are freaking fun. David just drove that point home like a sniper hitting a nail into a plank at 3 miles with his video the other day. (check out my last post youtube vid for the gaming rag ep1.) old games have entertainment value long long long after they are forgotten by the big devs. My latest games on my playing list all from the ps2. The ps2 for all you youngens that dont know brought us wonderful games like, God of War, Sly Cooper, Shadow of the Colossus and Amplitude, the last of which I am adding to my list of games that are freaking impossible but oh so great.
So after that pure drivel from the depths of my brain I guess what I am trying to say is both thank you Sony for doing nothing at all but making me happy about it and Gamers dont forget you dont have to just focus on new and shiny all the time sometimes focus on the old fun because it is still fun
Hello my faithful …. masses? I need to write more. I will I swear. soon to have thoughts on E3 (wish jeffro would post his I am sure he has a few rants saved up. life has been keeping me busy I do know I dont want the Xbox one hopefully tomorrow I will be able to get into that more. I have D&D with the guys tonight even though I moved thanks to google + and using hang out myself and another are able to still play so good times.
now back to the topic at hand.

post to facebook
So I have thoughts that I might be able to achieve soon, moving my computer with new desk into a new room in the house. buying a sumo lounge chair. (if you have heard of them check them out http://www.sumolounge.com/index.php)
hook up a newer tv/monitor to the computer and get my hands on several of the classic consoles as many as I can afford with the ability expand. pick up a tall bookshelf or some such shelving out there and make it all look pretty so I can sit down for classic gaming. pc gaming. writing alone or with friends. I will keep you all updated on progress of this pictures included.
also Kingdoms of Amalur the reckoning is a crazy awesome game and yes it is long I have heard reports of upwards of 200+ hours of game play here amazing.
I haven’t been to the blog in ages I haven’t really even been following gaming news, how dare me?!
New job, new house, new town, re installed my OS on my machine (yearly maintenance, brought on by a failed install of win7 sp (forgot the number) anyway I havent played anything new really. I did finally get to start kingdoms of amalur, have not finished it but incredibly fun. lets see what else have I been playing lately, sly cooper 2, star wars force unleashed, star wars jedi academy, lego star wars. SWTOR. ok noticing a theme here yes on a star wars kick lately. also been doing weekly D& D sessions with Monte, Zach, Jared, Josh, Tommy and recently added Bryan. great thing about this. Zach is east coast now and I am 7 hours from the game table but google + is a great way to do this. working bits and pieces on my book too mostly audio recordings of ideas and some documentary watching odd way to research but its fun.
so happy late winter-een-mas and if you havent please check out
so thats it for my short post here let me know what new games are on the radar.
So I love Megaman and I decide to show that love via some custom Chuck Taylors. One of kind. Awesomeness!
So, apparently a whole lot of gamers are getting butthurt that Ubisoft has omitted Scalping as an option for the Native American Protagonist in Assassin’s Creed 3.
Really? Really? We are doing this now?
Never mind the fact that the White guilt crowd is calling this “Self-censorship.” Censorship, yeah, except for the fact that after doing about 10 minutes of research, you can find that the tribe that the main protagonist is from did not participate in scalping…….
Yeah, so much for keeping history real….
I knew that the Merica bashers would come out of the woodwork the more we heard about this game, but to ignore real history while donning the mantle of “America is evil,” is not only making these people look like a bunch of misinformed fools but also showing the immaturity of gaming consumers.
As if the ME3 brouhaha didn’t already do that…..
Lately I have been hearing a lot of the words Art and Video Games being used together as in “Video Games are art” or “they are not art”
we have Smithsonian’s http://americanart.si.edu/exhibitions/archive/2012/games/gamefest/.
then we get things like: Peter Molyneux – “The industry isn’t ready for Milo, it isn’t sophisticated enough.”
I personally thing that Video Games are art. Movies are art, many movies downright suck too, music is art, at least most would think so and we have some horrible music out there, personal preference dictates what we like and don’t like. So why do gamers think that we are different the masses think we get to dictate to the content creators about what a game should contain. “what you talkin bout willis”…… do the masses write (insert music artist here) and ask that lyrics be changed because they do not like how the song ends. Do the masses write to Steven Spielberg because we dont like how Jaws ended.
Now I do accept there are some differences games are an interactive medium where you as the player mostly get to help dictate the story, in theory, since some games are very on tracks, that is a whole other topic however.
Now after all my rambling the point is this, gamers…GROW UP AND STOP ACTING LIKE A 5 YEAR OLD THAT GETS TOLD THEY CANT HAVE JUICE BEFORE BED. We should respect the game devs and writers for giving us fantastic stories and settings in a way that makes us feel included, they could just as easy decide to take that story and make a movie only.
