Video Games as Art?

So, it seems that the Smithsonian is having an exhbit starting next month entitled “The Art of Video Games”. They are allowing votes to decide what to include. The selections have already been dwindled down to a select few and I already find myself annoyed. They have Ocarina of Time- awesome Psychonauts, Abe’s Odyessey, Shadows of Colossus and EarthWorm Jim No Ecco the Dolphin though- which made the 12 year girl in me very upset. Medievil isn’t there, not sure how many people remember this game- but I absolutely LOVED this game. It was gorgeous, the game play was fun…

Just Your Average Anime Character

I’ll admit that I don’t watch nearly as much anime as I used to. Frankly, there is just too much of it and as I have discussed with several of my friends from the conventions- it kinda stopped being fun when the Narutards showed up. But I’ll save that rant for another time. I’ve been home sick today and aside from watching a few blissful hours of the ‘X-files” ( 1993-2010, my longest relationship ever ) I did some old school anime viewing. As a result, I bring you the ten most re-occurring anime character types 10.) The Pervert a.k.a-…

Retron 3 Review- I Know, It’s Been a While

A friend of mine had recommended this to me after I told him a six hour Maniac Mansion blasted my old NES. I’ll admit I was a bit wary of this considering it looked like one of those cheap gaming boxes you’d find in Target at Christmas. First and foremost, ‘yes’- it does work. Each system comes equipped to play any Nintendo, Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo game you might have. Most of my old Sega games were hidden in my parents moldy basement for about ten years and they still work- so needless to say most of these older…

Stuff My Newphew Says ( or Stuff I’ve Posted Somewhere Else, but I’m Putting Here Because I Need to Put Something.)

So a little background on this first; I have an adorable 7 year old nephew named Evan who it turns out loves Transformers… probably because he realizes his uncle does too and because said uncle gave him a ton of them to play with. Anyway, he found my DVDs of the original cartoon and the more recent Transformers Animated, as well as the recent movies. (Which is better than finding other DVDs of mine I guess) and had some observations. So here we go, the official first GRG entry about NLTAG’s favorite thing he’s probably to old to be caring…
