It's not an assertion about how much intelligence a specific user actually has. It's an assertion about how much intelligence one must presume a typical user has. :-p

While I was in attendance on the expo floor that Saturday, I personally didn't witness this going down. Still, the behavior of the errant journalist was inexcusable no matter how you look at it.

A somewhat random blue crate in the hallway becomes a canvas for a Doctor Who fan's drive-by artistic tendencies. It got a chuckle out of me though.

I loved this game on the PS2 and always hoped it would be re-released in HD on the PS3. This is a day-one purchase for me.

As an update to my post, I'm pleased to say that I purchased Okami HD from the PSN on its release day of October 30th, and I haven't regretted it at all. The HD remix is every bit as good as what I remember of the PS2 original, whose somewhat muddy presentation benefited greatly from the HD overhaul. The overall effect can be described as looking at a living Japanese watercolor painting, but with its own contemporized personality. I'd recommend this game to anyone who enjoys playing Zelda-esque, Metroid-vania style adventures, and at only $20 it's a great bargain.

Originally shared by +IGN, this contemporized cover of David Bowie's Space Oddity by Canadian Chris Hadfield, Mission Specialist and Commander of Expedition 35 on the International Space Station, is a must-see. Be sure to note the beautiful shots of Earth in light and darkness that are scattered throughout.

I have awesome friends, who prepared this (belated) birthday dinner for me. Oh, and there was also cake. No lie. :)

The resemblance, even without the costume and hairstyle, is amazing. Her other works are equally impressive.

The resemblance is pretty uncanny.

Watch Dogs was the surprise announcement at this year's E3, presented during the Ubisoft press event. It could be described as the thinking man's GTA, and one I'm going to have my eye on. It's refreshing to see not only a completely new IP being brought to life during an era of endless sequel churn (I'm looking at you, EA and Activision), but that it also seems so ambitious and well-executed. The cynic in me though, keeps reminding me that so many games these days initially have great promise but fail to deliver in their execution, so I'll be following its development closely to see if Watch Dogs can beat the odds. Release is slated for sometime in 2013 at the earliest, its developer (Ubisoft Montreal) adopting a "when it's done" attitude that I wholly agree with.

This is a really neat concept, and relatively cheap if you happen to have the extra hardware lying around. Finally there's a really nifty use for all those outdated laptops and desktops gathering dust in your closet. :)

I'm not blind to the differences but I also see similarities. But a single 10-unit hub cost over $100k and I suspect that's why it never gained much traction.

This has a lot more opportunity to be successful.

Story
Tagline
Elevating slacking to an art form.
Introduction
I'm really terrible at describing myself, and being a relative newcomer to this social media thingummy on teh t00bz, I'm really kind of at a loss for what to put here. There is a sort of obligation that I feel though, that I must at least make a reasonable attempt to lightly stroke the eyeballs of passersby with a pinch of flavor text, so I'll give it a go. Like my tagline says, I pride myself on being a consummate slacker and am determined to not take life nearly as seriously as other people tell me I should. My avatar is a werewolf because I think they're teh awesomesauce. Those who know me well would say I'm prone to fits of extreme geekiness and won't hesitate to follow a wild tangent into some pretty bizarre territory. I try to find the humor in nearly every situation, often leading to equally strange, yet still inexplicably fascinating (and sometimes groan-inducing), destinations. In my travels I've seldom if ever met a calorie I didn't like. As a gaming enthusiast I spend my free time engaging in my favorite hobby and immersing myself in that culture. Life is already dreadfully short, so if you can't have a little fun along the way, what's the point?
