Bloggin' It Baby

Just sittin around doin nothin, quick question though, does anybody watch Squidbillies? Man, awesome show on Adult Swim. It's mainly about redneck squids as the name implies. It's funny to me cuz i live in an area where some people really are as dumb as the characters in the show. If you haven't seen it i highly recommend you check it out, here is a link to a particularly funny episode, where the dumb attempts to teach the dumber (ha). Also this episode isnt on adultswim.com so dont bother lookin for it there. Enjoy!

Game of the Week #6

SSBM

This week's game is awell knowntitle for the Nintendo Gamecube, Super Smash Bros. Melee! Anyone that has ever heard of this franchise knows how this game operates, and it is a great one to bring out at a party. Super Smash Bros. Melee is a fighting game that pits various Nintendo characters in a fight to the death, on many different worlds and with a large number of playable characters. Characters range from Mario to Starfox and take a stop in just about every area of the Nintendo era. Melee, the prequel to Super Smash Bros. Brawl, is definetely one game that should by all circumstances not be missed. You can check out the official game web site here, or GameSpot's Super Smash Bros Melee page here. Also, a few screenshots to provide a taste of the action!

New DS Game...

SM64DS

So i picked up Super Mario 64 DS the other day cuz i heard it was pretty good, and I am delighted to say...it is! Its almost exactly like the one from the Nintendo 64, which makes it great. I've been playin it and i have about 70 stars already! woo-hoo!

Game of the Week #5

Blue-Shift

This week's game is the second official expansion pack for the Original Half-Life series. Half-Life Blue Shift, as the game is called, puts you in the role of Barney the security guard, and pits you against the many perils and foes Black Mesa Research Facility has to throw at you. This game takes you to places in the Half-Life world not previously visited, and the well-known gameplay and arsenal from the first Half-Life are all included. Blue Shift is not one of the longer expansion packs, but definetely a must-have if you are a diehard Half-Life fan like myself. You can check out GameSpot's Blue Shift page here, a website devoted to the game here, and also here are a few screenshots that let you peek into the world of Blue-Shift Img1, Img2, Img3. Good luck gettin out alive!

New Purchases!

DS Lite Decades

As of yesterday I went and picked up one of the Black DS Lites, and i have to admit they are pretty darn sweet. i got it new for about $135, which is nothing compared to when i brought a a new PSP phat right when they came out (around $250). While i was at BestBuy i also picked up Guitar Hero: On Tour Decades, and it is awesome! My hand hurts a little after a while when i play it, but thats okay. Ive already beat it on Hard, and tonite im gonna try expert! Overall, i believe my purchase was a pretty good one for the money.

Game of the Week #4

zombie genocide

Do you enjoy slaughtering millions of mindless zombie people? I thought so you sicko. If this tasteful activity is one of your favorite past-times, then you and Left4Dead are a match made in heaven. Left4Dead is a game set in a world that has become overrun by a horrible virus, causing the dead to reanimate and turn into flesh eating zombies. Cool right? You, play through the game as an unlikely survivor, campaining for your right to live alongside three other comrades. Left4Dead is nonstop zombie shoot-em-up action, with plenty of gore and great gaming to go around. You can check out GameSpot's Left4Dead page here, or the official game website, here. Happy head-hunting!
