Its good to be a nerd

So I've skirted my blogging(is blogging spelled with one or two g's?) duties for long enough. First off is E3. Most of the stuff I was all super geeked out on has gone through my system by now, but I wanna touch on a few things. First the 'new' PS3 controller function. Now I love Sony, but they lost that lawsuit about rumble, so replaced it with motion sensoring. Definately bummed about that. But what this really means is that Nintendo's job is already done. They promised a revolution, and now two of the three next gen systems uses motion sensoring. While PS3's is no where near the funtionality of the Wii, its still there and both will change the way we play games. Speaking of the Wii, only a few games make me want to get one, and basically they're all sequels to the only GC games that I wanted. Nintendo knows their shit, Warioware, Smash, Mario Galaxy, Metroid, these are all great. The problem is they don't know how to share the wealth. If it weren't for Nintendo making its own games, they wouldve been done years ago. If only they were able to get 3rd parties to do some of the same stuff, they'd be set. Now I realize there are more 3rd parties set up for the Wii this time around then there were on the Cube, but that doesnt mean those will all be good games. Either way, I'll probably pick one up if only for the fact that Snake is in the new smash bros. Apparently Hideo begged to get snake in the game, but what they fail to mention is that Nintendo begged to get the orignal designer of the past two smash bros to come back and make a new one. Whatever, good games is good games. MGS4 looked awesome, as all metal gears do, like Metal Gear: Portable Ops, finally a reason to play more than just Lumines and Mega Man on my PSP. There are definately good games comin out on all sides and this is gonna be one hell of a console generation. Oh, and they showed more Dead Rising on the 360, the only reason that I would ever own a 360...and they're this close to gettin me.

Also, the Justice League Unlimited thing. Back in 1992, Bruce Timm and Paul Dini had an idea for a new Batman cartoon. Little did they know that they would go on for 80-some episodes of Batman, a Superman cartoon, Batman Beyond, and the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. 14 years, not bad guys. It is sad to see this legendary run come to a close but at least they're all comin out on dvds and we can watch them all over and over again.

As for the comic...its finals time around here. Im goin crazy just doin work and trying to get a wee bit(or wii bit, eh?) of gamin in to save me. I've talked to a few people who want to do guest strips and now the race is on for me to get one done before they do. When the summer hits, updates should become much more regular as I will no longer have homework to worry about. This will be my last communication for a while so enjoy it.

And comic reviews will also make a comeback with a new feature where I review dollar bin comics and see how they stack up today. It should be fun. And on one final note, Moon Knight #2 is amazing. Go buy it now.
