As per the PlayStation Blog, and mentioned by Peter Dillie earlier: PSN will see “adjustments” to Canadian pricing starting this Thursday, May 1, in order to bring them into parity with the strong dollar. I’m drinking a fifth of Canadian Club in celebration as we speak. Of course, I was drinking it before I read [...]


Can’t Talk, Cops Will Get Me

So I went to the midnight launch last night and snagged myself a Special Edition PS3 copy of GTA IV. I was out in the middle of nowhere and there were still hundreds of people showing up to find their fix. Waited about an hour in line, not so bad.

How Can I Not Mention This

Nope, nothing to do with videogames. But…

… it’s a steampunk nerfgun. LOOK AT IT. It’s beautiful. Do you hear me, Hasbro?? Fuck your weak-ass N-Strike bullshit, I want BioShock Nerf.
They don’t hear me, who am I kidding.
It’s still under $200 on the eBay auction page but I’m sure that’ll change in the last, oh, 3-7 [...]


Nice Try

Much like with the Daily Show, sometimes you need to go to the comedians for the truth.


Criterion Devs Caught Taking Trucker Pills

That’s the only thing I can think of that explains the insane pace of Burnout Paradise updates planned this year. The full details are on the Criterion blog.
They’re not kidding when they call it “a year of Paradise”. I posted earlier on the first update, the not-yet-released Bogart patch, set to squish some [...]
