Rock Band DLC, Week of 11 October 2011

Ahh, it’s a cool, refreshing glass of “something I like”. The Clash single, at any rate, which is just about perfect. There’s a bit too little variation in Blink-182 songs – generally speaking – for me to not feel like I probably already have whatever they’re offering. But that’s without listening to them, so I could be surprised.   The Songs * The Clash – “Rock the Casbah” + * Blink-182 – “The Party Song” […]

How Xbox Support Completely Screwed Me.

UPDATE AND RESOLUTION, Friday 14 October 2011, 4:12 pm PT: There had still been no contact from Xbox Support/Fraud, but we had a few other avenues we were attempting to pursue. We had the ear of someone with the moderation team in the Xbox Live forums who was willing to see what, if anything, she could do if Fraud kicked the issue out again. We also had attempted to talk to XBL’s policy and enforcement […]

The Pull List, 28 September 2011

My name is Jet Wolf, and I’m addicted to comic books. Since picking up my first issue of X-Men way back in the late 80s, comic books have been a focal point of my life. I can’t imagine a world without superheroes flying around in brightly coloured and impractical costumes, punching out bad guys and sometimes each other. May the Pull List be eternal. Here’s what was on it this week.                 […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 4 October 2011

Another week that’s sour for my tastes as we get a four-pack from alt rappers/nu metal/blah blah genre group Limp Bizkit.   The Songs * Limp Bizkit – “Gold Cobra” * Limp Bizkit – “Nookie” + * Limp Bizkit – “My Way” * Limp Bizkit – “Re-Arranged” + = pro-guitar/bass chart available   The Thoughts “Golden Cobra”, now with 500% of your daily air humping. And yeah, okay. So I listened to all these songs […]

PAX 2011: Day 1, Part 3

The sun is setting on the first day of PAX [Part 1] [Part 2], but the night is still ahead. There will be music, and haunted bubble toilets. The adventure – much like this write-up – never ends.       When we last left our intrepid duo, the Main Hall was closing. The geek exodus had begun. On the left you can see the booth for Prototype 2. The first game had this infamous […]

PAX 2011: Day 1, Part 2

A tasty lunch of peanut butter has been consumed. Caffeine has been ingested. The remainder of Day 1 lies ahead. [Part 1 is here.] Our slow but relentless conquering of PAX 2011 continues.       Lunch helped shake off whatever remained of the previous night and we skipped merrily back to the Convention Center (note: may contain less merry skipping than advertised). This time we started near the top and soon found ourselves in […]

PAX 2011: Day 1, Part 1

Greetings and welcome to PAX Day 1. To enjoy our drunken pre-PAX adventures, you can read about Day 0 here.         Morning came, as mornings so often do, far too early. Still there was no time to wallow in the lingering embrace of hangover, not with so many lines to stand in! We made it to the Queue Room around 9am. Giant black beach balls were already being punted around the room. […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 27 September 2011

The DLC for next week isn’t so much for me, being a four pack from metal group Slipknot. Should be a nice seller for Harmonix though and as I’m still several weeks behind on picking stuff up, I appreciate the break.     The Songs * Slipknot – “Wait and Bleed” + * Slipknot – “Left Behind” * Slipknot – “Pulse of the Maggots” * Slipknot – “Snuff” + + = pro-guitar/bass chart available   […]

PAX 2011, Day 0

PAX 2011 may be many weeks gone but heaven forbid I let it pass without excessive commentary. I approached the convention with no small trepidation this year, and while it wasn’t quite the mind-blowing time I’ve had previous, it was still crazy fun and I’m glad I didn’t let the sour taste keep me away.     PAX, the Penny Arcade Expo – gaming convention without compare. For four days my husband Mike and I […]
