So I've had a really large, hard to digest thought on my mind for the past two months or so that has precluded me from using this space to proselytize in article form. Therefore I have yielded to my dark side and slapped on the comedy nice and thick, like mayo on a ham on rye. I hope you've enjoyed it. It will, no doubt, continue in the future.

July 4th to 10th

Happy Independence Day, Americans! I hope you're enjoying your independence during what may be one of the slowest weeks for new games this year. Pretty much all we have to look at is Killer 7 for the Gamecube and PS2. Capcom's bat-crap crazy adventure game made almost no sense at E3 and early reviews seem to agree that you'll either love it or hate it.

Happy Canada Day!

It's Canada day today and it looks like it should be a good one. We're the second country to legalize gay marriage (squeaking in just before Spain) and our beer is still brewed for taste first and getting drunk second. I apologize for the slow content over the past few weeks, as you can imagine a slowing down of game releases and the beginning of summer means everyone is pretty busy.

Comedy of Errors

Look at you, hacker. A pathetic creature of meat and bone, panting and sweating as you run through my corridors. How can you challenge a perfect, immortal machine?

June 27th to July 3rd

There's a real odd assortment of PC games coming out this week, in some ways it's a perfect snapshot of where the PC scene is at these days. We've got a couple console ports, two puzzle games, an adventure game and some crazy looking low-tech RTS game from a Dutch developer. Is this a bad thing? I'll leave that answer up to you, mainly because I'm not sure yet.

The Horrible Awful Unpleasant Truth

Well, my friends, the time has come for me to admit a terrible secret. It's a dark and shocking thing that I've kept locked up in a closet with the bones of Jimmy Hoffa and the Lindbergh baby. It is a secret source of shame for me, and I suspect shame also for those who hold my confidence and sully their own good name by keeping that secret for me.

URB3k Exclusive!

Continuing our efforts to bring you the hottest, freshest - no, I'm not going to say croissants. Thought I was though, didn't you?

June 20th to 26th

It feels like it's been a long time since we've had a PC game to crow about. Of all places it has to come from Electronic Arts, a company some have boycotted thanks to their big business moves. Really, if you want to stick it to them and not miss out on the fun I suggest you buy the game used.

Signs of Strength and Frailty

During our senior year of high school, GWJ member DrunkenSleipnir and I took it upon ourselves to determine just how long we could remain awake. We set our respective alarms for 6:00 AM on Wednesday morning, and when we awoke we held a chat over ICQ prior to departing for school.
When I'm feeling ill like I have the past few days I usually turn to renting PS2 games to take my mind off things. As a platform, the PS2 is teeming with games I'm interested in but not enough to buy. This time I've found myself playing Samurai Western and Shadow of Rome, both PS2 exclusive 3rd person action games that probably haven't gotten much notice from gamers.
