The Hollywood Stock Exchange

Posted: May 31, 2009 in Movies

The Hollywood Stock Exchange is a free stock market simulation game where you buy and sell shares in movies, actors/actresses and so on. You can also buy and sell various funds based on movies as well. I played a bit in 1998 and have been playing regularly since 2003. It is a pretty cool concept, […]

Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude is far from a great game. The gameplay is incredibly repetitive. However the writing for the game is very funny. The basis of the game is to get on a reality dating show called “Swingles.” To get on the show you must prove to the host that you have […]

This begins the Drunken Karaoke segment of my blog. All of these were recorded while playing the various Karaoke Revolution games on the Plsystation 2. There is unfortunately no background music, these are all done A Cappella style. Be warned, my singing is terrible, but maybe terrible enough that it may be funny. Part 1- […]

However they are really stylized and look great on display. They are produced in various series. There is a Star Wars line, a Marvel line, a G.I. Joe line, a Transformers […]

Posted: May 27, 2009 in Music

What is with the “Top Listener” rankings on LastFM? For example I have over 900 plays by Robert Earl Keen, I’ve been a “Top Listener” before but now many of the people listed in that area have many fewer plays by the artist than I do. How does it determine who is a “Top Listener” […]

Punch-Out Review

Punch-Out for the Wii is here! Wow this game is a total blast! Punch-Out is a NES classic and is regarded as one of the greatest games ever made. So when Nintendo announced a Wii version I was excited, but somewhat skeptical. I thought it may play too much like boxing on the Wii Sports […]

Top 5 Futurama Episodes

Posted: May 24, 2009 in Television

Futurama is a great television program that in my opinion was not only funnier but also smarter than The Simpsons and could do a lot more since the show was set 1000 years into the future. Sadly the series was canceled after only five seasons. Comedy Central eventually picked up the license but before Bender’s […]
