I Don’t Want to Live On This Planet Anymore- Trailer Edition

So, there has been a trailer for this Hansel and Gretyl movie floating around the net. Hawkeye is in it and apparently the chick that played Jean Grey is in it too. It looks batshit insane and warranted a ‘heavy metal is in the background so this must be bad ass’ soundtrack. Oh and when I say ‘ batshit insane’ I don’t mean it in the fun way, like sprinkles on a pizza. Hollywood just doesn’t want to learn. They made as shit-ton of money on that horrible Alice and Wonderland, with Johnny Depp doing his best pedo impression- and…

Conversations in Geekery: Sailor Dumbass

I really need to start recording my rants. Honestly, they have really gotten quite good in my old age. In recent weeks, I have taken to rewatching Sailor Moon. First of all the voice acting on the English versions are horrific. It gives me a lot of hope for my future voice actor Girl Duality: Mamo-chan/Tuxedo Mask is really the worst boyfriend ever Sai: He’s either treated like a project or there are types that are into walking disasters Sai: It’s tough being a guy [:(] Girl Duality: He’s so totally useless Sai: hahahah Girl Duality: Like right now, some…

Sailor Moon Merch

Apparently back in the day, Sailor Moon merchandise was everywhere and it was advertised heavily. Not only that, but it looks like Sailor Moon was quite the commercial whore- selling everything from shoes to eye drops. Because no one will be as enthusiastic about your products as someone who doesn’t actually exist.

How System Shock Soiled My Pants

June 19, 2012
By

Times have changed. Not a little bit either. Gaming graphics have
improved dramatically over the last decade and even more over the
decade before that. However, games have moved and inspired us, or at
least me, since the early 80s. Sierras quest series, Kings Quest,
Space Quest, my personal favorite Quest for Glory, even the extremely
odd Leisure Suit series. These games defined my childhood, I even
played the cryptic Phantasmagoria which if you played this you might
have also played Noctropolis (you perv.).

But no game has effected me as much as System Shock and its sequel.


System Shock

The progression of graphics, montages, and cutscenes have rendered a
lot of this cliché, old and boring to most. Not to me, I remember the
emotion connected to them, the challenge, and the imagination that
connected me to all these stories. Call it retro gaming, call it
nerdcore, I call it my childhood.

System Shock changed how i viewed gaming. I ran through the first
System Shock in 1994, on my POS computer, jumping to shitty graphics
and freaking out about 16bit squarish robot monsters. The sequel,
System Shock 2, came out in 1999, I was a Junior in college and my
roommate and I (Thank you Trey Terrell) waited for the coop patch to
come out to really get into it.

Creepy

The horror genre has matured since then, but in 1999 there were a
bunch of shitty Resident Evils, the Phantasmagoria experiment, and
System Shock (at least among the games that didn’t blow goats). System
Shock 2 changed me from playing games as a pass time, a joke, or
recreation, to realizing that games can convey emotion, passion and
relationships that all of us can understand… that and fear. Real,
jump out of your pants, scream like a 4 year old, freak out, fear. We
played it together, always in the dark, but in a lot of ways that made
it worse, we were sharing this freak out.

Unlike the entire Sierra line up, System Shock dealt with ethics,
suicide, and how we view tech.

When I dealt with this the first time, it was at 3am, with the blinds
pulled and no lights on. We had enough caffiene to kill a small child,
and we were freaking the fuck out. God, I loved it. That was what
gaming should be, not some 2 dimensional, bullet crazy, piece of crap;
System Shock 2 was a game that would keep you up at night, and screw
up your sleep cycle.

But then again, if you haven’t played Skyrim you haven’t seen WTF.
