playing video games is just another form of entertainment, like watching tv or going to the movies.

however, it is addicting and it can potentially waste a lot of your time.


and for the record:

coke and pepsi can kill you, not to mention add more than 10lb a year to your already fat ass.


diet pepsi is better than diet coke.

I know. I was just messing around.

I actually don't drink any calories from liquid, except a couple glasses of wine maybe once a week.

yeah, i've known that. thats why i stopped drinking diet coke all together.

i never drank soda much before, but i started to drink diet pepsi about a year ago and have noticed oddly enough, weight gain, or trouble losing weight... i hit the gym regularly.

so yeah, no diet for me either.

this guy made me very aware last night of how much nintendo f***d us over when we were kids paying a crap load of money for miserably written games. he has quite a few videos where he goes into detail about how the game is terrible to play and obviously terribly written with no shame. so now I'm kinda pissed at nintendo. cause I remember buying games when I was a kid and thinking "this isn't anything like karate kid"

he's also halarious.

seriously though,
has no one ever played "Resident Evil 4" on gamecube?

its the bee's knees, especially played with a 2 liter diet pepsi.

I love my old school intellivision too. You cannot beat a game like "Tron Deadly Discs"

I have an excuse for wasting time though since I actually do game sound. Remember all those times growing up and your Dad would say "You are just wasting your time playing those stupid video games" . . .well Dad, I'm getting paid for it now!
Who is stupid Dad!?
WHO IS STUPID!?!

Woo-Hoo!

I'm not terribly interested in the Wii. I got myself a DS, and almost every time I have to use the stylus and the touch screen I wish they just put those functions on the buttons or - better yet - actually put an analog stick on the machine. The one exception is Metroid Prime Hunters: that controls pretty nicely with the stylus. I'm afraid the Wiimote will similarly be great for like 15% of the games and the rest I'll wish I just had good old fashioned buttons.

Right now I'm just enjoying picking up all the great PS2 games for $20 I haven't played yet. Its awesome - wait like 8 months and the $50 games go down to $20 or less.
