1998 – The Greatest Year In Gaming?

Posted: June 13, 2009 in Games

I’d been reflecting back to 1998, I found a VHS tape I recorded with the 1998 special episode of Cinematech that aired on G4 back in 2005. I got to thinking about all the great games that came out that year and agree that 1998 was the greatest gaming year ever. 1998 was a transitional […]

Welcome Home

Well I just got my repaired Xbox 360 back about ten minutes ago. Everything is up and running as it should be. This was the first, and hopefully last time I’ll have to mail a system in for repairs. The total process took about two weeks from when I first printed the shipping label and […]

Web Soup On G4

Posted: June 8, 2009 in Television

I just got done watching the premiere episode of Web Soup on G4. When I first heard of this show last week during their E3 coverage I was kind of hesitant abut it. All it looked like was internet videos shown on a television program. So I was wrong. They show various internet videos and […]

I’m currently watching this special on Steve Jobs on G4. So far this is a very good special. A lot of the stuff they are talking about reminds me of the movie Pirates of Silicon Valley. I’m not an Apple user. I’ve only used Apple computers on a few occasions back in middle school and […]

Up – Quick Review

Posted: June 7, 2009 in Movies

I just got back from seeing Up at a local theater. This movie is excellent, one of Pixar’s best. The story in this movie is actually more for adults than children in my opinion. The story was very well done and was quite emotional at times. The story deals with more adult issues than many […]

E3 Impressions

I watched a ton of G4’s E3 coverage throughout the week and here are my thoughts on some of the major press conferences: Microsoft – I was glad to see a Metal Gear Solid game announced for the Xbox 360. Project Natal looked really promising. I really want to try a first-person shooter with this […]

Today’s free games are a collection of three classic Rockstar Games. Grand Theft Auto, Grand Theft Auto 2, and Wild Metal. I loved the original GTA. I remember playing the heck out of this game in 1998. I’d play this game with a copy of Dr, Dre’s “The Chronic” CD in my CD-ROM drive as […]

Electronic Cigarettes?

Electronic cigarettes? Ares these for real? I don’t smoke but how the hell can this be possible? An electronic cigarette that tastes like a real cigarette without all the nasty side-effects. This is just weird, check it out:

My PC died on me Monday night. It is currently in the shop being diagnosed. I’ll see what repairs it needs and then decide if it is worth saving. So I bought a cheap ass laptop to use until then and it will be my portable system from now on. Again, sorry for the outage, […]
