  • Lazy Luigi [Embedded Reporter]

    Deep from the trenches, it’s time for your Monday video feature: Embedded Reporter. A lot of you have already seen this, but I think it’s pretty amazing stuff. Watch as the other three players beat the level for Luigi, earning him plenty of lives in the process.

  • On Tim Schafer, Apotheosis, and Video Game Rockstars: A Brütal Legend Review [Game Overview]

    Apotheosis – 1. The fact or action of becoming a god; deification 2. Glorification, exaltation; crediting someone with extraordinary power or status. Do you know who Tim Schafer is? When I still lived at home, my dad used to ask me, “When are you gonna grow up and stop playing video games?” He tells my […]

  • L4D2: Great Game or Greatest Game [GO]

    I honestly can’t stop gushing about L4D2, it’s that good. Since I last wrote I’ve played through the Swamp Fever campaign (still haven’t beaten any on expert) on cooperative mode too and every map but The Parish (final map) on versus and I’ve been enjoying every minute. BULLET POINTS ARE GO! – As predicted, the […]

  • World and Japan Series Results [WMQ]

    It’s time for Wednesday Morning Quarterback, your weekly sports round-up. It’s all old news by now, but the World Series champions for this year were the New York Yankees. Powered by a ridiculous performance by Hideki Matsui, the Yanks pulled far ahead early in the game as Matsui clobbered anything Pedro Martinez threw at him. […]

  • NSMBW and L4D2 Impressions [Game Overview]

It also shipped with […]

  • Super Ichiban Travel Blog W Jersey Special [II]

    The pride of my trip to Japan no doubt has to be the 12 jersey collection I brought home with me. Here is a quick rundown of each of the jerseys, a little background behind each, and what I think of it. I’m gonna cover them in the order that I got them, so that […]

  • Truly, This is the Age of Trailers [Embedded Reporter]

    Deep from the trenches, it’s time for your Monday video feature: Embedded Reporter. What did I spend most of this weekend doing? Playing Dragon Age: Origins and watching The Wire. Only one of them is new and only one of them has a fancy new video review to watch. As a special bonus, watch the […]

  • Super Ichiban Travel Blog Part XIX: Epilogue [II]

    No Game Overview today, we’re gonna finish this up since I didn’t get to it today (World Series business) And so it came to pass that I went to Japan, saw some baseball, and came back home with a greater appreciation and understanding of Japan. If you remember the first entry in this series, I […]
