Listen – if someone else has the perfect setup, why WOULDN’T you just steal it? I’m a busy guy – I don’t have time to be all original and whatnot. Ok, so really I am just lazy. By the way, this actually happened – except it was a bathroom not a living room.

More or less, this sorta kinda happened. Maybe not the wonderous fantasy part where Releshes delivers a well constructed FU to his insurance company – but the part where he gets royally screwed for no apparent reason is pretty spot on.
Alas, we were not able to make it to the San Diego Comic Con – but there is a 93.24% chance we will be there next year. Something that caught my eye: these new screens from Soul Calibur V look pretty fantastic. See for yourself!
Ok – so maybe this isn’t exactly what happened, BUT, I did back my car up into a pole. In my defense, I was using the back-up camera, which I now know gives you a very false sense of security and absolutely no visibility on the side of the vehicle. Also, there is CLEARLY design flaw in the parking garage that contributed to this incident. Clearly.
Sans our parentheses addition, this was an actual news article title on ABC news (see it here). Since we couldn’t be there for this…wondrous event (and we can only assume you missed it, as well) we decided to depict these randy turtle in comic form. As Mike so eloquently put it, “So, drawing a turtle’s ‘O Face’ was weirder than I thought it would be.” I couldn’t agree more, Mike, I couldn’t agree more.
So, apparently even some of Daniel Radcliffe’s closets friends claim they didn’t know he had a drinking problem. I don’t really buy it; there’s no way you spend that much time together with someone and not know. We thought – well how might this affect the final movie, and today’s comic provides a very plausible possibility. The main point here, though, is that I don’t really care (about the drinking). Do you? I didn’t think so. Let’s move on.
I saw this article today on 10 clever indie games ready to shine at PAX – and as a PAX fan, I thought I would point it out. There’s some good stuff on the way!
Oh, and speaking of good reads, this article (entitled How Digital Detectives Deciphered Stuxnet, also from Wired) was absolutely riveting. I highly suggest you read it. It was like being in a movie, except you’re reading it!
Whenever a game company has as many subscribers as Blizzard currently does, it shouldn’t really surprise anyone that their numbers take dips every now and then. But, what IS surprising, is when aforementioned game company resorts to drug dealer type activities to get people back.
Well, I guess they have to try something, right?
You may have heard, we have a new T-shirt in the store! Now, when you forget your clever, trendy or hipster T-shirt, you can let everyone know it’s at home! Ive heard some people like it – maybe you will too:
Don’t ask about this one. What’s that? Oh, all right – I suppose I can let you in on the inside joke. For years, Releshes has “won” every argument with the threat of somehow absconding with my shoes and filling them with, well, you can see above. Why? I have no idea – in a way, I suppose it was a moment of ‘brilliance’ as it just so happens to turn the tide of a conversation – sometimes.
When I read a recent WIRED article about how iPhone users are the most prolific mobile game players, and spend an average of 14 hours a month gaming, my surprise was not that people spent so MUCH time gaming on their phone, it was that they spend so little. For a device that literally goes everywhere with you, people are simply not taking advantage of the situation enough! In an elevator? Game time. Boring meeting? Game time. Signifigant other telling you for the 9th time to take out the trash? You get the idea.
