Soo... Nintendo named their next generation console (formerly Revolution) to the Nintendo Wii, pronounced "We".

Personally, I think this is just an added deterent to prevent people from saying it sucks. This is because nobody would want to say Wii blow, or Wii suck, because then they are implicating that they themselves suck. On the other hand, Wii rock, or Wii is awesome is awkward grammar but is much more positive to the ego when said.

Star Power

Sequel to Guitar Hero announced! This is one game every one should play. Only death or prison should bar (Har, Har punishment) you from it. If the latter, break out!

The Ideal RPG

Patronus isn't much of a fan of the tradition grindtastic/quest based RPGs. So, instead of trying to play devils advocate, I decided to let Patronus design an ideal RPG. I kind of set a guideline, and Patronus ad-libed certain parts. Here is what we have so far.

Long ago, there was an ancient kingdom that was ruled by a king. All of a sudden, darkness befell the kingdom when the king died. The prince, suspecting foul play, decides to investigate the death. He found that it was caused by a nefarious heart attack. The people, having lost their much beloved king, became depressed. The crown prince, seeking to find a cure for his people, decided to buy turkey legs for them all.

Not quite as oscar worthy as Dragon Fist....imho

I Don't See Dead People

I had a follow-up eye examination today to test for Glaucoma and the test was negative, although I am not quite sure how accurate my test was. Basically, you use an eye-patch (Arrrrr, me maties) to cover up one eye, then look into a bright light through a refractive lens with the uncovered one. You are supposed to stare at the bright light, and little white flashes would appear. When they did, you had to click a button to signify that you saw it.

At first all was well, but the flashes kept coming in predictable patterns...then BF2 tankwhore reflexes took over. It got to the point where I was trying to pre-emptively click before the light would occur. I had to keep telling myself to only CLICK WHEN I SEE THE LIGHT....and not try to click when I thought the next light would appear.

April Fools..... joke?

Geez, some people just cannot drop a good April Fool's Joke. Take the joke from gamespot about the new MMORPG from Blizzard: World of Starcraft. To complete the fraud, Gamefaqs (owned by gamespot) actually created a profile for this game, and the board for this game has shot up to #4 on the PC boards with no signs of stopping. View the board here.

Damn, those goldfarmers are fast, there are ALREADY auctions for WoS minerals on eBay!
