Here are some websites that I think are related to video games and that I think are pretty cool. I'm sure there are millions more out there, but at least its a start. I'll try to edit the blog from time to time with more links if I find any that are worthy.
Bought a used game and missing the manual? Check here, you'll probably find it in downloadable pdf format. Literally hundreds of manuals, some from systems long ago.
Nintendo offers some of their manuals in the support website, most have probably already been uploaded to replacementdocs.com though.
This website contains various fonts for you computer from films, music, and video games. Pretty cool if you're trying to make a banner or wallpaper.
This website tracks various statistics on hardware and software sales. Some people criticize it for not being accurate, which it may not be, but overall I think its a pretty good guess.
Wikipedia is probably the best information source on the internet. If you want to know something, check there first. Their video game topics are pretty sweet, especially the history of gaming for all you youngsters who don't appreciate how far gaming has come.
Gaming for free! My wife enjoys some of the simple board games and such. There are millions of sites out there that offer free gaming. I personally can't stand shallow cheap games. I need something with some story and depth to it. But if that is the type of game for you, here are a couple links for you to game for free.
I have played GH3 and I really don't see what the fuss is about. Sure, rhythm games can be fun sometimes, provided there is enough variety. But I still think GH3, and for that matter RockBand, are 'poser' video games. You're trying to act like you can play the instruments, but you're really far far from it. And thats pretty much all the game is about.
I recently got into a small debate with a friend of mine. He has RockBand on the 360 and he is completely addicted. He'll stay up till like 2 or 3am most nights playing. One day I called him a 'poser' and told him that he's trying to act cool but in reality he is just being really lame. He came back at me saying that I'm just as big of a poser. He stated that when I play an army game, that I'm trying to imitate being a soldier. Or that when I play a medieval era game that I'm trying to act like I can swing a sword.
I play video games not to act like someone I'm not, but instead I see video games more like interactive movies. Story line and plot are important to the atmosphere of the game. So no, I'm not a poser because I play an army game. I just really enjoy interacting with the movie. Where is the popcorn?.... yum... now I have buttery buttons on my controller.
I spend more time surfing the net at work during lunch breaks and down times than I do in my free time at home. My free time is consumed by gaming.
Gaming is expensive! I can't afford to buy every system and every game. Therefore, I have to choose the one that is best for me. Last generation it was Xbox. This generation it is the Wii. So now that I own a wii, of course I'm going to be more interested in all things related to wii.... does that make me a wii fanboy?... I guess it does.
