REVIEWS Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Review
Ultimax comes the closest to realizing my dream of an actual fighting RPG.

Super Smash Bros. (3DS) Review
Nintendo’s first brawler, combining characters from all over its universe, lands on a handheld for the first time and it sure packs a wallop.

I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

Haiku interview.
Posted on Monday, August 8 2011 @ 07:37:25 Eastern

“We are honored to have with us today Dr. Richard Cranium PhD; Professor emeritus of English, Midwest Polytechnic University, Sandusky Ohio. Hello, professor.”

“Greetings, er, tiny.”

“Gee, it’s great to have you here, today to help us better understand haiku.”

“Yes, it is an honor and a privilege to help educate ones less fortunate than oneself.”

“Okay, first off, can you give us a short and sweet definition of a haiku?”

“Yes, I could. However I feel an overview of the history of the written art form known as haiku would be much more beneficial to all concerned.”

“Doc, we don’t have that much time or space.”

“Oh, very well. A haiku is a very short piece of poetry consisting of three lines. The first line having five syllables, the second line having seven syllables, and the third line having five syllables. A haiku does not need to rhyme, most don’t, but can rhyme and still be a haiku. It is a general principle that a seasonal reference is made in the haiku, a word (or words) that make one think of a season. Traditional haiku have a word or more commonly in English a punctuation that serves to break the haiku into two parts, or is used to show a definite stop to an idea. All that being said, modern English haiku are not really constrained by any of these rules other than being short.”

“Ok-ay. Right. Thank you for clearing that up for us, Dr. Dickhead. Er, I, um, mean Cranium, Dr. Richard Cranium, everyone.”

Two types of people?
Posted on Thursday, August 4 2011 @ 05:27:52 Eastern

One night while socializing with a group of acquaintances the idea of “two types of people in this world” came up in conversation. Someone stated that there are two types of people, the ones that make things happen, and the ones who watch things happen. Just then somebody else walked in, “What are you guys talking about?” To which I replied, “That there are three types of people in this world, the ones that make things happen, the ones who watch things happen, and the ones who say what the hell just happen?”

A few things I like about GR.
Posted on Sunday, July 31 2011 @ 21:16:40 Eastern

2) No stupid top ten lists. I’m looking right at you IGN. &ldq...   read more...

Why can’t game developers and publishers use their imagination?
Posted on Saturday, July 16 2011 @ 21:45:43 Eastern

I guess someone in the game industry has used their imagination at least once or there wouldn’t be a pass system for online games. Maybe you've heard of the newest one: “Ubisoft Introduces Uplay Online Pass [Update: Confirmed]&r...   read more...
