Does anyone know if Patrick Wolf and Kevin Barnes are the same person? They both seem down for a David Bowie concert or down for wearing some glitter.

OrionNebula-774263Space. The final frontier…Star Trek quotes aside, space is crazy. Go out side at night and look up. See all those stars? Most of them are dead by now and the light from their lives burning out is just getting to us. While you’re looking at those stars I want you to realize infinity is above your head. You ok? Still with me?

Love/Hate: Difficulty Level

July 26, 2009

lovehate copy

Difficulty level  is the factor that separates the men from the boys, or the girls from the women (yes there are girl gamers, don’t freak out). Difficulty is a huge factor in games. Games can be too hard, and they can be too easy, and sometimes they are just right. Gamers all have their own preference for difficulty. I like a challenge when I play, but that same challenge can also discourage me from playing. This week I’m touching on difficulty and why we love and hate it.

Splosion Man: If Michael Bay made a game

July 22, 2009

E3_SplosionMan_TitleLogoThe best way to sum this game up is a quote said to me by a guy I play Xbox Live with. “It’s like setting a [mentally challenged person] loose in a science lab and giving him the ability to explode…” Yeah, this game is pretty sweet.

Love/Hate: Achievements and Trophies

July 18, 2009

myachievement

Oh game related awards. How we love them, but at the same time hate them. They give us something to work towards, something to strive for in our games. For some they mean more than to others, I know a guy that’s got an 80k gamer score on Xbox Live. The dude is serious business. In PS3 trophies…That’s like level 20 or something. I’m not really sure how those work. I’m assuming they are the same as achievements, just a different scoring method.

Kids are annoying

July 16, 2009

simpsons nelson Yesterday I got my first call to work after two weeks. For those that don’t know, I’m a substitute ‘teacher’ (I don’t really teach anything) at a daycare center. What does it mean when people say they ‘like children’? Does it mean they also like adults that are of less intelligence and wisdom? Maybe people like kids because they are easy to influence; nothing builds your self confidence like someone following your every step. Or maybe it’s envy. Remember when it was OK to be stupid?
