What Madness Is This

Ultimate, or so it would seem.
I go away for a week to finish my fucking work (which is, thank you for asking, well and truly finished; completed, stabbed, dismembered, liquefied, scattered hither and yon) and jesus you people have made a mess.
I thought that Bungie-splitting thing was a bit of an outlier; now it turns [...]

Excuse the Dust

My huge work project is winding down, which is industry-speak for accelerating to ludicrous speed while aflame, so my time’s been tight lately. As you can see from the dearth of posts. This is also blamed on a site re-design I’ve been working to get live. (Got to get off this damn template. It works [...]

Halogasm, Dual Shock the Third, UnStrangled Little Girls, etc.

Here’s just a whole bunch of stuff that I’m catching up on…
Amongst the still-glowing embers of confetti and flaming cat helmets resulting from the Halo 3 launch, a clutch of aftershocks emerges: the game runs at “640p”! That’s, like, 80p less! What devilry is this? Nothing, says Bungie, it is just you whiny bitches who [...]

Master Chief Ate My Baby

I haven’t played Halo 3 yet. Not sure when I will. Seems that the single-player portion is fairly rote, from what I’m reading.

No Faming For Me

This was as close as I got:

I know some of you wondered if I came to Toronto just for this thing: I didn’t. But I did walk past it.
When I saw that the “event” really was just a huge marketing push by Microsoft and Best Buy, I hesitated. When I saw that the Guitar Hero [...]

Notable Releases: September 24-30

Halo 3 (Xbox 360)
The mother of all (dodgy) game marketing campaigns comes to a head this week with the monstrous, unholy launch of Halo 3. This will obviously give the 360 a huge boost in North America; the game had 1.5+ million pre-orders alone. What else can I say about it? It’s Halo Fucking Three. [...]

Mass Erect

Everyone’s favourite British content-rating outfit, the BBFC, has given Mass Effect a “12″ rating. We learn this by way of their sober, considered report entitled “OMG Boobz”:
“If playing as a male character the scene can take place between him and a human woman or a humanoid female alien. If playing as a female character the [...]

Halo 3 “Museum” Ad

Microsoft has launched a rather interesting commercial for Halo 3. You can view the ad here. I suggest you do so before you read any further since I’m going to talk about the ad in detail. I don’t want to give you any pre-conceived notions going in.
… good? Alright.
So, this ad is obviously very daring. [...]
