May 31st - June 4

Here's something most of you don't know.  There's this big secret forum only for cool people that most of you can't even see!  We spend most of the time arguing over which of you we'd most like to hit with sticks, but occasionally we even get work done there.  I only mention this forum because it's where Certis called me useless to try and goad me into doing

World of Warcraft Diary 1

Like most of you, IÂ've read a lot about World of Warcraft since the beta began, and frankly itÂ's all kind of a blur.  While I appreciate the host of previews available, and that Blizzard isnÂ't holding testers under a NDA, I donÂ't think IÂ've ever gotten a good feel for what itÂ's like to actually play the game.  These previews are usually overflowing w

420 Points! w00t!

Seriously, guys, I do not need to know, nor do I care, that you are so wasted. I'm cool with whatever you want to ingest to enhance your gaming experience, but just keep me out of it. I don't know which of Microsoft's advertising campaigns seriously appealed to the herbal crowd, but I've been stunned at the sheer volume of stoners I've encountered on Xbox Live.

Conference Call - Gish

"Indescribable... Indestructible! Nothing Can Stop It!" When I saw the first screenshots and the trailer of Gish I knew I had to obtain some more information on the title. When I tested the demo I knew I had to get the full game. A platform game developed by the makers of my beloved Bridge Builder series?

May 24th - 30th

Seems like a long time since I've done one of these things. It's even a holiday here in Canada and I just got married but what the hell, you only live once! I know, it's a wild and crazy way to spend your honeymoon but we decided to hold off on it and go this winter when we'll appreciate being somewhere hot and sunny more.

The Great Xbox Rally Faceoff

"Well," he said, "as your attorney I advise you to buy a motorcycle. How else can you cover a thing like this righteously?"   If there's one genre that seems exceedingly well represented on the Xbox it's the driving game.

Something Borrowed

Stan's got his rented tux, his clip on bow tie, and with auburn hair slicked back has even set aside his iconic hat to dream of the happy bride and groom.  After months of planning, or more particularly of Hoochie planning and Certis dutifully not getting in her way, the happy couple will be tying the knot over the weekend.  Having just spent several days in close proximity to

E3 Awards, Certis Edition!

Intellivision, still better than watching UT2K4 flicker on the Phantom. I think we can all agree that IÂ'm both uncreative and lazy. That being the case, IÂ'm stealing ElysiumÂ's E3 awards article format and in a couple weeks IÂ'll talk about it like it was all my idea.

Ely Awards - Best of E3 Edition

IÂ'll assume that we all have the presence of mind to realize that every Â"˜best of E3Â' is an absolute example of subjectivity run amok.  And yet, you canÂ't come back from the show without being bombarded with questions about what looked good, what looked bad, and what surprised you.  So, I offer up these Â"˜best ofÂ' positions in the spirit of blatant f

More E3 Pics

You've asked for them, and now you've got them: more pics of our adventures in Los Angeles.  I'll have a final recap in the next day or two, but for now you'll just have to live with looking at our handsome mugs.  Also, there may be a barely interested sleepy looking babe booth or two pretending to like Sway.
