This colour scheme is so June..

Oh yes, we’re moving! From now on, we will no longer be using this address. Hats off to Ben, who moved us out of WordPress and into our own domain. Also, thanks to the United States of America, and Independence Day sales.

With the new site we’ll be able to do more customization, with esthetics and such. Exciting stuff.

Change your bookmarks, tell your friends, and never come back to this location.

9000?!?!?! NINE THOUSAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have fond memories of the times when I lugged my old Game Boy around with me, a pack of four AA batteries, the crappy AC adapter as a backup source, and a collection of the classics. I would then proceed to feverishly play Super Mario brothers in the car, in the mall, and even on the crapper.  Difficult parts you could not get by would cost you lives and eventually, it would bring you all the way back to the beginning of the game. You could say this was frustrating but it definitely made the game more challenging and rewarding.

A huge debate questioning the difficulty of games broke out a few months ago on Double True.  I for one agreed that games now a days were getting a tad easier with the many options (infinite lives, etc) or cheats you could implement. Nintendo now takes this one step further by allowing users the option to use a secret “Help” feature. This option will be built in to future Wii titles – an option that allows the computer to take control of the game and help the user get by difficult parts just by a click of a button. The company argues that this option will allow the  younger audience a chance at having a fun experience.

I however see this “Help” feature as a tragedy. Kids around the world (or big newbz) will not get to experience the rewarding feeling of capturing an Onyx with a regular poke ball, jumping to the top of the flag pole at the end of a Mario level or killing that bad guy in Ninja Turtles.

I’ve still got forty minutes by my watch.

Oh, todays Canada Day?

Oh, today's Canada Day?

Tonight was the night that we all have been waiting for (referring to the Edmonton-based metalhead double true followers… huh, guess that’s just me). Thrash metal legends, Megadeth, finally return to Edmonton after thirteen whole months, this time with Slayer! Trust me when I say it was well worth the wait.

It looks terrible right now. Don’t worry, just hang tight and we’ll fix it.

Speaking of which, if anyone wants to design a banner, let us know.
