Ys Origin Out Today!!!

Posted in Blog, Games, Video, Ys on June 1, 2012 by slateman

Ys Origin launches today via Steam and it is the long-awaited official English localization. This is the last major Ys game to be released here in the States and it’s $20. It looks like…Ys and is likely nothing much more. However, it’s awesome to see support continue for the series, and with four titles on the PSP, another coming on the Vita and now this, it’s like an Ys genesis here in the U.S.! In the very least, the music is legendary. Brings me back to 1990. Man, I’m old.



Skyrim Music Video: So Awesome!

Apparently this could be considered cheesy. I don’t know how, it’s dripping with awesome sauce. So fantastic. Enjoy this Skyrim music video!



Newest Prometheus Trailer: How Can I *NOT* Be Excited?!?!

Posted in Aliens, Blog, Movies, Video on March 25, 2012 by slateman

I LOVE Alien & Aliens. The second is my favorite movie of all-time, I think. We’ve all heard that Ridley Scott was making Prometheus, a prequel to Alien. Wait…What? It’s NOT a prequel? But, but…but it’s got the space jockey and that ship is the same and…

OK, so it’s not officially a prequel but it’s a prequel and we all know it. I think he said it so we wouldn’t all expect face huggers and xenomorphs. Because, let’s say it were a prequel and there were no face huggers and xenomorphs, it would be a disappointment, right?

I’ve learned my lesson. I try to have low expectations for anything that could be utter friggin’ awesomeness. This is a perfect example. Prequel or not, this could be ├╝ber-amazing and for that reason alone I should have NO EXPECTATIONS. However, it’s time you watch something. It’s time you watch this, in its HD glory. It’s time to speculate, “WTF is going on?!” Yes. You are excited. You can’t help it. This could be utter friggin’ awesomeness. So, release your inhibitions and accept it. Now, wait until June 8th to find out if it does in fact disappoint you on a legendary scale. Because it just might. Or…….?



Psyched beyond comprehension – even if that is a very bad thing indeed.

Borderlands 2 Trailer: The Best Trailer Ever?!

Posted in Blog, Borderlands, Games, Video on March 24, 2012 by slateman

I love Borderlands. I reached level 41 before losing my save game and then got to level 57 on a subsequent playthrough (well, more than one). Its DLC is incredible, the gameplay is superb and the second game is coming. This is going to be exciting.

I have to admit that I’m a bit skeptical. Can BL2 REALLY be as good? This is a tough one to ponder. However, after watching the video below…I don’t doubt any more. If this game can manage to be bad, then this trailer was even more effective. As is, I watch it and I’m totally pumped. How can you not be?! Oh man, I’m looking forward to this!!!

Ah, this is funny stuff. I figured my Lydia posts were done; she is dead after all.



Video: DDP:DOJ First Level Chain

Posted in DoDon Pachi, Games, Video on February 25, 2012 by slateman

OK, there’s no audio here, and like I mentioned below, I think I lost the save file for this replay, so this is it. I finally accomplished this in late 2005 after a long time of practice. DoDon Pachi: Dai-Ou-Jou is one of the most strict, brutal games out there, so I consider this an amazing accomplishment and one of my highlights as a gamer. A complete level 1 chain, 809 hits!!! Hit full screen, and check this out. I’ll likely never be able to recreate this again!
