Weirdest thing I’ve ever seen.  I love you, Japan.

Outstanding Essay – Bittersweet Christmas Morning

This comes courtesy of Julian Murdoch (a.k.a. “Rabbit”), member and regular contributor to Gamers With Jobs — a site (and podcast) I frequent since I decided to outgrow the bathroom humor inherent in so many other video gaming communities.

Click and read this.  Now.

Mr. Murdoch has a good ten years on me, but we’re hitting several balls in the same park.  It’s a hard thing when a lifelong hobby and love of mine tends to be equated with immaturity.  It’s refreshing to encounter other “grown-ups” who aren’t just sad man-children that never really left their early twenties behind, but who can still enjoy “childish things” respectably.  Kudos, Rabbit.

If this doesn’t get you salivating, I’m revoking your gamer card.

Amazing.  The New Super Mario Bros. Wii is my new biggest object of lust.

Watch this to see what I mean.

About 30 seconds into it, I realized that the “object” that the three players keep spitting back and forth from their Yoshis IS the 4th player.  And he never touches the ground… the entire level.

Gall dern… I can’t wait to play this.  Thank you, Nintendo.  Again.

PS:  Mom, Dad… I don’t care how noble I act.  Buy me this.  For Christmas.  Pleeeeeeeease.

Better (?) Living Through Video Games: Tetris and the Brain!!

image003

Two great Wikipedia snippets I chanced across today. About Tetris.

According to THIS (click) playing Tetris can actually improve the efficiency of cognitive functioning AND help people recover from traumatic events faster than NOT playing.

But…

It can also make you go crazy. (click)

We report, YOU decide. I just want to go play some Tetris now. The voices agree with me.

Paid for the Internet Channel? Time to collect a free NES game…

If you were like me, and didn’t get in on the Wii phenomenon early enough to get the Opera-based Internet Channel download for free, Nintendo would like to make it up to you.

Starting now, and running until the end of the year, you can visit the Wii Shop Channel, download a quick update, and click to download any one 500 point NES Virtual Console game.

The Internet Channel is a free download again (and was recently updated with slightly better Flash support… sorta) so download or update that if you haven’t already done so since September 1st of this year.

(PS:  I downloaded StarTropics for free last night.  Never played it all the way through when I was a kid, although my sort-of-brother Chris and I logged several hours on his copy.)
