After a nine month absence, Strong Bad Emails have finally returned to Homestarrunner.com! The newest email seems to bring the world of SBemails and HRemails (Homestar Runner emails) full circle. I wonder if the HRemails will continue? Either way, it’s fun to see the emailinest guy in the land return to his throne.
Here is the latest Strong Bad Email http://www.homestarrunner.com/hremail3184.html
For my second pro wrestling based post I have decided to give my opinion on what I would say has to be one of the absolute worst put together wrestling rivalries I have ever seen, John Cena and The Miz (or Mike Mizanin as he is sometimes referred). Read more
It seems that those video game “fans” just never want to stop whining and complaining. Back at E3 Valve announced its newest game, the sequel to Left 4 Dead, one of the most original first-person shooters I’ve ever played as well as one of the best multi-player games in years. But rather then being happy about the announcement, these so called “fans” once again see things in a negative light and choose to once again run their seemingly never closed mouths about how wrong Valve is and how right they are about Left 4 Dead 2. I have decided to give my opinion on the matter for which I am referring. Read more
Excuse the obviously-trying-too-hard title of this post, I couldn’t help myself.
*Dusts off computer*
The official trailer for Hayao Miyazaki’s latest film, Ponyo is now online via Apple.
It can be seen here http://www.apple.com/trailers/disney/ponyo/trailer_large.html
I couldn’t help but notice the “CG Disney Castle” logo shown so prominently at the beginning of the trailer, which to me says that Disney is giving Ponyo a little more support then the previous Miyazaki films (they may actually show commercials before Two AM this time!).
I recently discovered something that may be oozing of the awesomeness in a hopefully not too distant future. The original Super Mario Kart, the Super Nintendo classic that revolutionized multi-player gaming and properly introduced the world of Mario and friends to a non-platforming genre, was just released on the Japanese Virtual Console on June 9th, so there’s a good possibility that we may be seeing Super Mario Kart of the North American Virtual Console very soon.
And on a similar note, the original N64 Super Smash Bros. was just released on the European Virtual Console on June 12th! It had already been released on the Japanese Virtual Console back in January, so this may be even closer than Mario Kart!
This comes as good news for me, since (besides Majora’s Mask) I haven’t really noticed very many high-profile classics on the Virtual Console as of late. Let’s hope they get released sooner than later, and that their presence may inspire more classics to be re-released on the Virtual Console soon. Awesomeness indeed.
Time now for part 2 of my adventures at E3. I suppose I really don’t need much more of an introduction than that this time around.. Read more
This past week I had the honor of attending my first ever E3! I know what you’re thinking, “Is Slogan Yams that important?” My guess is that I must be humoring someone important, which then permitted me to attend the event.
I intended to have this post up earlier but complications prevented that from happening. Besides, I highly doubt I would be the first person one would go to to find out about E3. But I decided to post about my experience and share what games I am most looking forward to on the horizon! Read more
Today, June the sixth, 2009, marks the 25th anniversary of one of the true “perfect games” of the universe….Tetris!
Tetris is the incomparable puzzle game, and one of the most important and influential games ever created. 25 years later, and Tetris has been re-released, recreated, and re-imagined on virtually every console, handheld and computer ever made, and is the most widely played video game of all time.
Tetris has proven to not only be a landmark in video games, but an immortal icon in pop-culture as well, and even something of cultural significance .
So congratulations to Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov, for creating a timeless masterpiece in the world of video games that is as successful today as it was 25 years ago.
So why not sit back and play one of the (countless) variations of this classic game, and let it delve its way into your subconscious, haunt you in your dreams (in a good way) and even effect the way you think!
Happy 25 years Tetris.
*On a side note, I was at E3 this past week and will have a post about it up ASAP*
