Activision Gets Served - My 'Kneel Before Pod' Debut!

For many of you who are probably unaware, I made my debut on Kneel Before Pod this Sunday as Carl, Ryan and I talked about Activision/Infinity Ward and ultimately how it's affecting the Call of Duty franchise. Check it out here.

My Pokemans. Let me show you them.

Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver were released for the Nintendo DS this Sunday, March 14th, and of course I had to have it. Although I'll never be as excited as I was in middle school about Pokemon I've gotta say this game is pretty cool. The game comes with a little Pokeball clip on called a Pokewalker. It counts your steps and you can use it to take your Pokemon for walks when you're on the go. You are also able find items and catch other Pokemon when you're out on your walk. Cute!

My only complaint about the games is that they still lack the character customization that I crave from RPGs. Why can't my Pokemon trainer be blonde Nintendo? Why?! Most people would rather make their own character than choose between the prudish Ethan and Lyra. Ick.

One of the coolest things about the game is that all 493 Pokémon in are capable of following the main character, similar to Pikachu in Pokemon Yellow if you recall. You can interact with the first Pokemon in your team by hitting A and every now and then they will do a little dance for you if you make them happy enough. Shininess is also retainable and shows up as well so get your Action Replays ready folks!

Unfortunately, I just don't have the time I used to to devote my time to Pokemans, but as a fan of the Pokemon franchise I can definitely say that the new line of original Pokemon games that have been rereleased for the DS have come a long way, and I can only hope that by the time I have a kid they're still coming out with new content and titles.

Food Inc.

Watching Food Inc with my roommate. This movie is ridiculous. It's amazing how much food companies are keeping from us. Did you know that a pound of broccoli is more expensive than a double cheeseburger? AND that 1 in 3 children born after 2000 will be diagnosed with an early onset of diabetes? WTF. This is so disturbing.

I haz something to say.

First blogger post. Very exciting. Doing laundry and trying to figure out how to use the interface, this should be quite interesting..
And the layout is done. It's only temporary as I will be working on a nicer one during spring break. ;)
