Year in consumables: 2008 games

BraidI am mixing up my order a little bit this year. In the past I have done music, movies and then games. This year I am doing a reverse order. Games are first because I am more or less done with games to play from last year. I am still catching up on movies but expect to have that up by weekend, err… end.  Since no one cares about the music one, it can go last. (If you are at all interested in last year’s lists you can find them under the best of tag, but here is last year’s games post.)

Of course, that’s not to say that the game had to come out in 2008 to make the list. I simply had to consume it in 2008. (Although, games from last year still on my list for this year are Tomb Raider Underworld and maybe Fallout 3.)

Last year I ranked 10 games and then did a list of the Xbox ... Continue reading »

Telefizzled w.5

(Before I start, are you seeing the blue logo at the top or are you seeing my halloween decorations? Just wondering…)

I am already fizzling out on writing these things. Just kidding. It took me a little extra time to watch one last show from last week, so I had to delay this one a little. It doesn’t matter which one. They were all most teh suck.

There’s a reason I named this series Telefizzled you know…

Chuck: Well, based on what you read, ratings are down for this show and that bums me out. It is a really good show, but NBC and I can’t seem to convince anyone to watch it. If it gets canceled, I am blowing the whole season up until Lost rears its head… and maybe Friday Night Lights. This epsiode was an homage of sorts to Grosse Pointe Blank. We see Sarah as a total nerd in high school and Chuck is giddy to find out some deats about her real life, or so he thinks. Turns out her daddy was a real live confidence man, so whatever name they gave her wasn’t real. I don’t remember if they really sussed it out, but it turns ... Continue reading »

RRoD roundup

Well, even though it didn’t matter that much, the second go around with Microsoft’s Xbrick 360 replacement program was smoother than the first. For the most part, it was always informative in what was going on and it was certainly a bit faster. That said, I thought I’d post a little wrapup/roundup for the heck of it. I mean, if I end up using it, it will die again and I’ll have a third opportunity to evaluate the process…

Anyway, it didn’t matter as much because I did go out the day after mine died and pick up a newer Arcade model with the Falcon chip and HDMI port. While I don’t think it is any quieter than the older one, it has been nicer with the HDMI, except for the ghosting, but that is only when I turn it off, never in gameplay, and I think that has more to do with now using HDMI over Component cables as I never noticed it prior to that… so, whatevs. This one has a newer DVD drive too, but it seems to spin just as loud as...
