Why I Am Better Than You

Ok, not really, but I thought that would be an appropriately sensationalist headline. More games stuff than I can shake a mildly broken stick at!

1) I'm going to be getting a "reviewers" copy of TEW 2006 fairly soon. As soon as the MSPaint on the art files dry, actually. This is why I'm better than you. Once in a blue moon, I get free things just for being as awesome as I am. Now, usually those things are just punches in the face, or Spam for having my e-mail address plastered all over the interweb (though at least with the UPW guys, it makes sense that they'd spam me). Also, it's cool because I'm going to get to play it before anybody else, basically. It makes me feel all warm and gooey inside.

2) Nintendogs, baby. That's right. I'm getting up early next Tuesday and trucking over to Best Buy to put my hands on a copy of the greatest Dog simulation game since Dogz 7 (8 was a trainwreck). I'm getting "Minature Daschound and Friends." I played the demo the other day. It was awesome. It's better than owning a real dog because it doesn't pee all over the carpet. I've suddenly become way less cool haven't I?

3) http://www.telltalegames.com/bone_the_game

I've never read Jeff Smith's Bone comics series, but I've heard only good things about it. Now it's a point and click adventure? I'm there. It's too bad there's no money to be made in point and clicks anymore. The community is SO huge, but so scattershot. The really great ones (King's Quest, Space Quest, Monkey Island) died way before everything had finished in the series. It's sad to think that none of them are coming back. At least there's a chance of a new Sam and Max now that Lucasarts lost the liscense.

Addendum: Before you think anything, Grim Fandango was awesome, but the story was done. There was nothing left to say, and I'd hate to ruin an awesome ending by trying to tack more crap on.

4) Morgan Webb in FHM's Game Section: Fantastic. Of all the "celebrity tech columns" (basically Morgan, and Chi-Lan and Cat in Stuff), this one makes the most sense, Morgan's a good writer, she looks good, and hey, it's probably doing more for her career at this point than getting yelled at by 12 year old Full Metal Alchemist fans.

5) Speaking of G4, I was down in LA a few weeks ago for their host search. I've got plenty to say on the matter, and I'll probably do an entire post on it, maybe this weekend. We'll see how things shake out.

6) I just wanted to drop a line and say that I'm really, really proud of this week's Satire.

I don't know what the hell I was thinking, but Dean Malenko as a Film Noir Detective cracks me up.

That's all you're getting for now.
