I picked up my Call of Duty 6: Modern Warfare 2 promptly at midnight last night. It was pretty crazy: Infinity Ward had a tank, a humvee, and a line that wrapped around the block. After freezing my ass off for an hour, I got my precious—which I played on Veteran until 5 in the morning when I thought it might be good to get 3 hours sleep before work.

The game is simply fraking AWESOME. I didn't know if Infinity Ward could outdo Call of Duty 4, but this is as good or better.

I was so stoked to be playing, it was totally lost on me that there was something wrong with my prestige edition. I thought I was the only one unlucky enough to end up without a complete Soap head. , but I've seen a couple things online suggesting a few other people may have had that problem. In my case, I had two left halves of Soap's head and was missing the right half.

I brought mine back to Best Buy the moment they opened this morning, but not before I'd already emailed and called Jakks (the company that made the bust and night vision goggles for Activision) to ask what to do, since I wasn't sure if Best Buy would have a replacement (the prestige editions are sold out, from what I understand).

Anyway, Best Buy took care of my problem, but the folks at Jakks were super friendly. The lady on the phone promptly called me back, and I've already gotten a response from them via email:

I'm still playing SR2. This game has everything!

Here's me in my new pants, with one of my purple ninjas, in the gay bar I just bought:

I went into the trailer park (Sarah Palin likes to call it "Real Stilwater"), stole this bitch's beer, then beat her over the head with it. This is me standing over her body as she bleeds out. awww...

Here my PC is dancing as my purple ninja watches on, while one of the bar patrons cowers in fear at my mad dancing skillz. This game is ridonkulous. I love it!

Playing Grand Theft Auto IV, I've avoided a couple of the side missions—one being fraking around on the GTA internet. Well, now that I scored a safehouse that has a computer, I started wasting some time and came across an ad for KRAPEA.com (a fake in-game website).

Apparently, someone at Rockstar may not be a fan of a company that may or may not have be similar to IKEA and full on mother fucking lulz are the result. I had to share some of this brilliance and retyped two pages of it to give you a taste (yes, there are actually several more pages you have to check out). I'm going to have to spend more time on the "internet" in the game. And if you have the game (you should), you should totes check out the random links when ur on the web.

Anywho, here it is. (For the record, I actually like IKEA, but I can totally relate.)




We locate all our stores in places that are really difficult to get to, preferably with access routes that are particularly prone to heavy congestion. Just keep your eye out for a windowless metal box the size of an airport. If you enjoy the third-world experience of traveling with 200 people on a 40-seater bus, some cities also offer a shuttle service. We recommend that you bring a change of clothing. You will be away from home for a couple of days. It will make you melancholy for many reasons.


Once inside the store, pick up a pair of shin-pads and throw any small children into the pit of plastic balls by the entrance. Teach them that the human soul lives in isolation, as all Swedes know. Now you're ready for the labyrinth. No windows, no clocks, no cell phone reception. As soon as you step through those revolving doors, you are plunged into a time vacuum where day and night no longer apply. And we have gotten rid of the sun, just like in Sweden.

it's really the subtle nuances and attention to detail that makes a good game.

Take, Grand Theft Auto IV, for example.

It's the way your character hits every step going up and down the stairs that makes it special—the way his head and shoulders gently move up and down as you walk; the way the illumination from your headlights casts shadows on your surroundings;

It's the way your car's engine catches fire after too many crashes; the way the fire slowly expands from the engine compartment to the rest of the car until it finally explodes and the fire spreads to cars around you.... The way the driver of the car next to yours jumps out of her car with her clothes on fire screaming and flailing her arms; the way she drops and rolls around on the ground for a good minute screaming in a futile attempt to put the flames out until the fire finally goes out and she's left quiet, with nothing but her charred remains on the pavement.

It's the little touches....

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] retaliashun, my Wii has found a purpose other than Dust Collector (which is good, because that's Roomba's job, and he gets jealous).

The blue light had been blinking for days so I finally decided to turn it on to find out what it was complaining about. I has a message:

I just downloaded the Battlestar Galactica game from Xbox Live Arcade.


I was kind of expecting a bit of disappointment from the reviews and screenshots, but whoa. The graphics aren't bad, but the problem is they're really just background graphics.

The game is actually played on a 2-D plane. So in the demo, you're just a little Raptor-like thing in the center of the screen shooting at giant C-shaped things posing as Cylon Raiders. So while you can see Galactica, the Astral Queen, and the Mining Ship, they're just eye candy from afar. You can't actually fly to any of them (at least not from what I've seen in the demo).

What makes it even worse is that there's no dialog. So when the alarms sound, instead of hearing someone barking status or orders, you get "Frak! That's a Cylon Basestar!" written at the bottom of the screen, which really sucks what remaining fun there might have been out of it.

I guess in the end, it's supposed to be a simple arcade game, and it accomplishes that. I think I still wanted to see something a bit better though. I wanted something a little more exciting than Asteroids with pretty wallpaper. I'm worried I'd get bored with it really fast.

I haven't decided for certain if I won't just go ahead and get it. It is only 800 MS Points, which at current exchange rates is only $10USD (MS Points might be the only currency left worth less than the US Dollar right now.. ZING!).

Of course, now that I've played the demo, XBL places it in on my gamercard. I always found that funny since you can't actually earn achievements unless you buy the game. But I guess they know that for people like me, it's going to drive me crazy just knowing is there showing 0 achievements, and I can't remove it. Frak you, Bill Gates! Frak you!

P.S. but the game does have barrel rolls.

You know, if I were an alien race creating a super cool weapon capable of destroying an entire galaxy, I probably would add a couple lines of code to each Halo make sure if it were fired prematurely it wouldn't self destruct and take my space ark with it.

You know, something along the lines of:

// Do *NOT* allow premature firing that
// would result in destruction of entire halo ring
// and likely asplode our whole space ark yo

if ($haloReady) {

else {
   echo "Halo not ready. Firing sequence halted. Please contact
    your supervisor, Covenant support center or try again later. xthxbye";

Only when you play Halo 3 Multiplayer on a gay team can you hear/say such things as:

OMG let's kill him and take his shoes!

Let's go kill some betches!

Did you see me? I was totally driving that Warthog like Halle Barry.

*with 3 people on a Warthog* Did anyone bring a Madonna CD? No, but I have Wham!

You shot my hair!

Let me borrow that top!

OMG! I LOVE riding the Man Canon.

*gay/schoolgirl shriek*
(when killed)

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! (while riding a man canon... or really anytime)

I think we traumatized several other teams (since they can hear voices when you're near them). Actually the worst gay shriek probably was from me. Three members of the opposite team totally caught me off guard and fragged me. After I screamed, I heard "What the fuck was that?!" I think I went ultrasonic.

I'm seriously about to piss myself with anticipation for Halo 3 tomorrow night.

It's like trying to sleep on Christmas Eve. It'll get worse for sure once once my Halo 3 countdown widget goes below 1 day. I have to somehow get a full night's sleep tonight, cuz I'm not sure how much I'll get tomorrow night. I plan to be at the store at midnight to pick mine up. I'll probably end up playing until some ungodsly hour. I just can't wait to ride the man cannon again.

...I'm totally taking my Master Chief action figures to work tomorrow.

Good job, Timmy!

For future reference, apparently closing the bathroom door and turning on the vent != "adequate ventilation"

I'll like it much better when my tongue doesn't feel hairy anymore and I stop tasting paint or sneezing glossy brown-black mocha.

Today, I was actually carded when I bought BioShock.

"We have to card everyone now."

That California law Guvnah Ahnold is so fond of was blocked by the courts, but I guess Best Buy is covering its arse anyway.

I just bought a Wii. I haven't opened it yet, but the game selection looks *yawns* boring, but that's sight unseen, so I'm hoping I'm wrong. Although, I can't believe it's only 480p. How am I supposed to frag someone at 480p? WTF?!


I think I got caught in the frenzy of limited supplies. My coworker and I ganked the last ones. I don't see it replacing the Sexbox anytime soon, but it might be fun to have when friends come over. ...or it may end up on ebay around the holidays.

I need to get a game or two for it. Maybe I'll try playing Leaning Side to Side.

Driving home on Friday, as I was about to pass Century City mall on my way home, I suddenly decided that I had to have Gears of War. I cut across 4 lanes of Santa Monica Blvd to park at the curb in front, and ran into EB Games and back. I didn't have much time to play this weekend, but enough to scare the shit out of me.

The graphics on the game are the best evar. For whatever reason, I usually play fps games sitting on a stability ball a little over a meter in front of the TV. Our TV is 50", so that seems to give me the best vantage point for seeing what's coming, and the ball allows me to move back and forth as I tend to do while I'm playing.

Anyway, so I was showing a friend the game before we went out. I'm waiting for one of the NPCs to open a door when all of a sudden locusts fall from the ceiling and come at the screen with that awful noise they make. It startled me so much, I shrieked, lost my balance, and fell off the ball onto the floor. That's how crazy good the graphics are. I thought that would be the extent of the scares until I played tonight.

Enter the Berserker.

So I'm playing, having just killed a few locusts when, without warning, this thing that looks like a cross between Skeletor and Ann Coulter busts through the wall with a loud growl. The controller vibrates like mad, and the thing makes some unholy noise as it charges full speed straight at me on the screen. This all happened in like a second. It scared me so much, I seriously just about peed myself. I jumped, screamed like a 12 year old girl, and moved to the side seconds before it splattered my entrails on the screen.

Here's Johnnie!

As soon as my heart starts beating again, I'm going to go change my underwear.
