Ah rants . . .

Watching Brad play Resident Evil 6 Demo:

Fairly: At least his hair looks good.

Brad: His hair looks horrible!

Fairly: What are you talking about? His hair looks amazing!

Brad: No, look . . . adjusts camera . . . see the shadows? It’s horrible!

Fairly: Whatever, you aren’t a girl, you have no idea what you’re talking about!

[Brad: Leon's hair was fabulous! (as it was in Resi4!) It was the shadowing that sucked :P]


Brad: Why am I even here? Look, she’s killing everyone for me. I’ll just stand here.

Fairly: You’re just supposed to stare at her. That’s the entire point.

Fairly here, which means that posting anything under this post will not make sense if it’s directed at Brad ;-) (did that sentence make sense?)

What can I say? Welcome to motherhood for me. My gaming life has gone drastically downhill since having a son who apparently decides to break every single milestone ahead of time. At this rate maybe I can get him gaming by 12-18 months . . . hmmmm. He might break all of my Mario Kart high scores by age 2! Just kidding, I don’t have anything you could refer to as a “high score”, must keep up that feminine mystique or whatever.

“Chase, Chase McCane”

“Chase McCane! You’re a legend!”

….. Well I’ve never heard of him! Hmph

By demand (from one person, I’m a pushover) I’m going to post my thoughts on this new Lego game. Disclaimer, I have only heard of the Lego games, I have never actually played one. It’s not because I thought they looked extremely childish (I’m all about extremely childish), they’ve just always been overshadowed by other games that have been released.

I do know that my cousin, Sarah, was a big fan of at least one of them. She’s a massive gamer, and one of the few opinions I’ll really listen to on gaming. She knows her stuff.

Nintendo E3

Well, I was trying to figure out how best to word this post, but I couldn’t’ find a way so I’m just writing.

Despite the fact that Nintendo was fully introducing the Wii U at this point, they didn’t have too much to offer. There were so many other presentations after the big one that I was hoping there were a few surprises in store. Not so much. The roundtable seemed to focus most on Nintendoland and the 3DS presentation was basically a recap of the E3 presentation. I mean, REALLY?

You’d think that since they were naming something “Wii U” they might have a little motivation to do something spectacular with it. Nintendo just fell back on games that everyone KNEW were coming to Wii U (such as Mario, Nintendo = Mario) and offered nothing new for fans to drool over. All of the presentations were “safe”.

I was expecting something crazy like a new F-Zero or even an awesome third part addition like Professor Layton or Phoenix Wright. Shoot, they could have easily put Layton and Wright on the Wii U.

Oh! Or Mario Paint! F-Zero and Mario Paint were the two I was crossing my fingers for.

Trust me, with all of the potential retro games being brought back going through my head I was sorely disappointed with everything Nintendo brought forth.

Who knows, maybe they’ll surprise me later but the last two E3 presentations have been absolutely bland.

Someone mentioned Madden and FIFA in a comment on a previous post. While the new features may be cool, it’s still underwhelming. We all knew those would be announced, that doesn’t help the pain and disappointment I feel. :-(

Btw I’ll make a post on the Lego games. While obviously geared more towards the younger crowd. The whole thing just has the potential to be very interesting, especially with the way the dialogue seems to be written.

E3- Sony

I’m going to go through Sony’s presentation now. I’ll briefly hit on Nintendo in the next post, but I want to wait until after the Developer Roundtable to put any final thoughts on here. Unless y’all want my first thoughts from watching the presentation.

I’m going to need a moment…


*walks away*


(still hoping for a surprise reveal from Nintendo)


ETA:  Is there anything y’all want me to focus on?

E3 Microsoft

Well guys. I would say that Trey Parker summed up Microsoft’s presentation nicely:

“How many times have you thought I want to watch this on my TV while listening to my mobile device which is being controlled by my tablet device which is hooked into my oven all while sitting in my refrigerator?”

Fairly here!


It seems there’s a bit of confusion. Two people post on this blog: Brad and then me.

Anything posted under “Fairly’s Corner” will not involve Brad except for the occasional times I ask him to check my grammar.

For the record Brad is still alive, just very busy. He’ll probably post his opinions on E3 once it’s over.

So who is psyched for E3? I’m baking a cake! (I’m serious)
