X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Partial Review)

On Wednesday evening, once Lindsey had finished her runthrough of Overlord II on our Xbox 360 (she should have a review up today), we headed to Blockbuster to trade it in for X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  I played the demo not so long ago, and fell in love with the graphics, the gameplay, and the way Wolverine’s abilities were depicted.  I started the game and was not disappointed. Since I have...[Read More]

The Farthest Shore

The Farthest Shore is the final tale in the Earthsea Cycle, and satisfactorily brings Ged’s story to a conclusion.  The Farthest Shore picks up the tale approximately two decades after the conclusion of The Tombs of Atuan. The Farthest Shore sees the peace that Ged brought Earthsea after the events of The Tombs of Atuan beginning to deteriorate after the magic of Earthsea begins to fail.  Th...[Read More]

The Tombs of Atuan

The Tombs of Atuan is the second book in the Earthsea Cycle, continuing the story of A Wizard of Earthsea a few years after its events.  The book moves its focus, however, onto a new main character, while placing Ged in the role of a supporting character. The Tombs of Atuan is a similar coming of age style story.  The main character, Tenar, also known as Arha, is raised believing in one ideal only...[Read More]

A Wizard of Earthsea

I am a fan of fantasy novels.  One might even go so far as to label me an aficionado. One book that has been a favorite of mine in this genre for a couple of decades is the Ursula K. LeGuin story A Wizard of Earthsea. A Wizard of Earthsea tells the early story of Ged, known as Sparrowhawk.  The story is, in many ways, a coming of age tale that sees Ged transform from an arrogant child into a wise ...[Read More]

Blogathon Challenges and Obstacles

Half an hour passes quickly when you’re otherwise occupied.  I almost lost track of time while getting ready for work!  Luckily, I caught myself and got to a computer in time to get this beauty of a post up. We have been signed up to participate in the 2009 Blogathon for a couple of weeks.  At the time, we had no other plans whatsoever for this singular Saturday.  Last weekend, however, our ...[Read More]

Welcome to the Blogathon!

Good morning!  My name, as the author tag so concisely indicates, is Chris.  For many, this time of day is almost unheard of, especially on a Saturday.  I, however, must head in to the office for a few hours, so I am more than accustomed to it.  I don’t normally post this early, but this is a special event!  The World of Meh is participating in the 2009 Blogathon! What does this mean to you,...[Read More]

An Interesting Altercation

I like love NEED to wash my hands.  I wash them very thoroughly and very vigorously on a frequent basis.  If I touch our dog, I wash my hands.  If I touch a bathroom door (or anything in a bathroom), I wash my hands.  If I touch a slightly dirty dish, I was my hands.  If I touch my hands, I wash my hands!  Well, not so much that last one, but I am very neurotic about my hands.  Why does any of thi...[Read More]

My Naughty Dream NSFW

Last night I had a rather interesting dream featuring a rather well known actress if you were born in the 70’s-80’s, and watched Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Her name is Phoebe Cates. The dream turned out to be slightly naughty, and since in the dream I told Phoebe that I’d blog about it… here I am! It started off with me in bed with her, but I still had some clothing on. ...[Read More]

Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland

If you’ve been living under a rock, then you wouldn’t know that the genius known as Tim Burton has been working on Alice in Wonderland. If you are aware of Mr. Burton’s endeavours, then you probably know that today a trailer for it was released onto the internet. It spread like wildfire, only to be deleted by Disney (because they suck). I did a little “Google Magic” a...[Read More]

Red Faction: Guerrilla (Xbox 360 Demo)

After the disappointment of the Bionic Commando demo, I downloaded the Red Faction: Guerrilla demo.  I had heard good things about this game, so I thought I’d give it a shot.  Thankfully, this demo actually let me try the game properly. The first thing that I noticed in this game is that you can destroy EVERYTHING.  E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!  With a sledgehammer, I was desetroying buildings, swin...[Read More]

Bionic Commando (Xbox 360 Demo)

I loved this game as a kid.  Bionic Commando was, as they say, “the balls.”  That’s a good thing, I assure you.  Prince of Persia and Ninja Gaiden showed us that remakes, when done well, can provide an equally impressive experience now as their predecessors did decades ago.  With that in mind, I eagerly downloaded the Bionic Commando demo from the Xbox Live Marketplace and gave i...[Read More]

Episode 26 Recap

More than anything else, I usually slack on the recap posts.  Well, this week I’m slacking less than usual! Episode 26 told everyone about our entrance into the upcoming Blogathon this Saturday, as well as covering a few stories from our lives.  We went over some demos and games we got our hands on, and talked about our advance screening of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (review was ...[Read More]
