Pick Up and Play...For About Five Minutes

Ever since ICandee Jr came on the scene, I've had little (if any) time for gaming. When I do have time, I've been gravitating to puzzle games (or the old standby-Katamari) because it's a way to get some sort of gaming in and at the same time it's something I can drop quickly should the need arise (i.e.-ICandee Jr deciding that 10 minutes of sleep is more than enough for one day).

When company comes over, if we're lucky enough to talk them into playing something, it's usually Rock Band, Scene It or Mario Party. Which those are fun, don't get me wrong but anyone that has read this blog for any amount of time knows me well enough to figure my need to blow something up is getting hard to repress at this point.

I tried to distract myself by trying out Yosumin! for the Xbox Live Arcade but...I don't know...not enough blow torches for me. Sometimes I do miss the days of staying up until God knows when playing G.R.A.W. or Burnout Revenge and taking out my friends (and yes, more than once-myself).

Oh well, new chapter and all that I suppose. One day ICandee Jr will be old enough for me to tell her to go play outside while Mommy shoots things. Let's see...she's 8 months old now so I should be able to do that when? In another month or so, right?

The Most Boring Post Ever

So once again, game playing has been slow around here. Yesterday I tried out Prototype or as I like to call it: "inFAMOUS Crackdown". And that's been pretty much it...*sigh* sad...

In funner news, the mucho talented Phin from the Frag Dolls community made me the slick new banner you see before you. I'm very in love with it., all bow before the banner!

If anyone reading this blog is playing games, please tell me your tales so that I may live vicariously through you...

That is all.

Dumb ICandee vs 100 Smarty Pants

Well the beta of 1 vs 100 is upon us and hello, free game to play! I didn't get in the first night but RuFfNeCk did so I just watched him play and was a little disappointed actually. He was getting questions like, "1 + 1 = what?" and "What color is red?" I swear it was right out of Will Ferrell's Jeopardy or something!

So needless to say when I got into the beta the second night, I may have been slightly over confident in my high school education and memory there of. I got questions like, "What is 1958746246fnj4692 divided by 7456393i769302j?" and "Describe, in 5,000 words or more, three improvements to transportation in early 19th century America and how each benefited farms and factories?"

Okay, there may be a slight exaggeration there but come on! I thought myself quite the intelligent person until 1 vs 100 quickly kicked me off my high horse and ran me over with it.

I cannot be the only one that's been sitting on my couch the past couple of nights with a puzzled look on my face, wishing I had a I???

Lawsuits Are So Brutal

Modern Warfare 2...okay

Halo ODST...sure

God of War, why not

Double Fine's new game "Brutal Legend" finally clawing it's way to the surface despite the fact that it has nothing to do with Raz or Psychonauts in general??? Yeah baby!

What? I know how to prioritize the important games...

E3 and The Second Coming of Katamari

E3 is upon us once again and since I am not lucky enough to be a part of the masses currently playing the latest and (hopefully) greatest or watching Steve Wiebe go for Mitchell's DK record, I decided to watch G4's E3 "coverage" and crochet Ichigo from Katamari Damacy:

I won't give you the boring details of E3, you can find that anywhere and everywhere but I will say that Microsoft had a pretty good showing (me want Beatles Rock Band!), Nintendo's conference was the saddest thing I've seen in a long long time (Vitality? ... seriously?) and I can only imagine that Sony's will be 15 minutes long since I'm assuming they'll be done once they discuss the new PSP and God of War III.

E3 is go!
