Comic: Hey Paisanos!

(Click for better view. Blogger's being stupd)

This is the comic I've been talking about.

First off, for all you Sony fanboys out there, this is just a joke. If this will be a recurring thing (hopefully), I'll be probably making fun of the Wii Vitality Sensor next. So, if you're one of those people who take these sort of things too seriously, I have some advice: don't.

Second, for those of you that don't get the joke, I'm basically saying Sony's ripping off Nintendo and Microsoft with a "wand" motion-sensitive controller, and relies on a camera for interaction.

Lastly, I'd like to give a big thanks out to the artist of this fine work, Staffan. His deviantART account is:

Once again, thanks Staffan!

(Note: I do realize it's a bit late, but Staffan says he's been busy)

Today, one of the most famous men in the music industry has passed away. That man is Michael Jackson, the King of Pop. All allegations of pedophilia and weird stories aside, this guy's death is pretty saddening.

He's not only been an influence on music, but oddly enough, Games too. Along with his own game, Jacko has been rumored to have written the soundtrack to Sonic The Hedgehog 3 (but uncredited).

Anyways, in honor of his passing, here's some of Michael Jackson's Moonwalker.

Other Site News

Hey everyone reading this, I've got a few little announcements for the site:

  • I've recieved the rough draft of the comic I said would be on here a while back. According to the artist, it's so late because he's been busy lately, along with not being able to get to a computer with internet to send me it.
  • Along with Comic Con this summer, we'll also be down at Youmacon this fall.
  • Lastly, we're going to work on two or three videos sometime this or nextweek.
One thing that may not qualify as "Site News" but is still mildly important is about the next "The Meh, The Bad and The Weird". In the last one, I said that I was going to do a Sega Genesis game. Problem is, I can't find my power and video out cables for it, so I might be doing a PC one instead. I know that's not too important news, but I don't want to be a liar.

Oh, and the video below is in honor of Transformers 2 coming out today.

You've got The Touch


If only I could do stuff like this in my free time...

Anyways, this video was created by members of the USK Clan. According to the user IllEatYourMommy, this video was originally the product of trying to see if one could do Rocket Tennis with some TF2 bots and then gradually evolved into the video above.

Plants Vs. Zombies

First of all, I'm sorry for not posting as much. Right now I don't have any underrated games that I can review without a T.V. recording device, so I'm just gonna review a game I thought was pretty good.

Plants Vs. Zombies
The first thing you discover about the game is visible even before you install it. It is one of the most unique games of modern gaming. The next thing you notice is that it's made by PopCap, a company known mostly for casual games. Now, onto the gameplay.

If one were to generalize this game as one type of game, most people would call it a tower defense game, but at the same time, it's sorta, not. You have five rows of lawn (or whatever else the game gives you) on which to plant your army. You start out with simple weapons, weak peashooters, wall-nuts which serve as barriers, and sunflowers, which give you sun, the currency for planting plants. as you play the game, you unlock more complicated and powerful plants.

The game is split into five chapters, each comprised of 9 levels, and a minigame. The levels are never too hard to overcome, but you still can fail if you're reckless. Each level is just long enough to be satisfying, but not long enough to be exhausting. Every level also has a set-up time of around 30 seconds, and then continuous zombies with 2 or 3 massive waves, the last being the biggest.

While the main campaign is not very long, (2 or 3 hours) after you fight the final boss, you get minigames, a zen garden, puzzle mode and survival. and you can start the adventure mode again, but your neighbor Crazy Dave, picks out 3 plants that you must use for that level.

Overall, this game definitely makes the $10.00 worth it, with lots of replay value, addictive gameplay, and a distinct personality that is guaranteed to make you laugh.

Yet Another Video of Yesterday

Sorry for not posting much today or yesterday. I kinda make it a goal to have at least two posts per day.

About five minutes ago, I took a look at my clock and noticed it was 12:04. "GAH! I forgot to post again today!", I immediately thought. And since there's nothing really for me to post about right now, I'll just post a very funny TF2-related video. Enjoy

Now that is what I wanna see!

On, a site well known for its skins for Counter-Strike, Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead, the user The_Fanciest_Of_Pants has made a new model for the Pyro from Team Fortress 2.

While not the first female Pyro skin out there, this one may appeal to those with a latex fetish. It appears that both models were inspired by the "The Pyro is really a woman!" rumor circling the internet.

Not only does the new model give The Pyro lady parts, but it also changes the pitch of The Pyro's voice to keep with the theme of a female Pyro.

What next? A babushka-wearing Heavy? Frau Medic? Only time will tell, but in the meantime, here's a video of the skin in action:
