Posted by Canis Minor , 25 May 2013 - - - - - - · 4,080 views

Well, if there’s one thing I’ve learned from working at a McDonald’s for the last few weeks, it’s that people are massive jerks. As such, I’ve decided to provide you with a handy-dandy little guide on how to not be a complete imbecile when you go to a McDonald’s.

The people working the front cou...


Alright, somebody friggin' bring me up to speed

Yeah, I'm back, more or less. Hopefully a good chunk of you remember me. For those of you who don't... Hi. I'm Canis. There's virtually nothing to like about me.

Anyhow, I have now returned. I'll leave you to decide whether or not it's a triumphant return. Meh. Sooooo.... yeah. I've noticed the site's gone through a complete overhaul, so can somebody ple...

OK, folks, it's time for another rant. The obvious choice would be all those laws concerning the Internet, but I have nothing to say that hasn't already been said. So, instead, I present you with a different complaint I've been dealing with of late: chronological confusion in video games.Let me start at the beginning. I have a buddy who is a m...


The Obligatory Christmas Entry A.K.A. 'If it's Not One Thing, it's Another

Posted by Canis Minor , 24 December 2011 - - - - - - · 1,925 views

A while ago, I explained my absence with illness. Now, I come and blame it on my computer.See, my usual activities around here are done via my laptop. Show of hands, now, anyone got an idea why this might be a bad thing?...Time's up. If you said something along the lines of, "you have a really crappy laptop with a history of acting ridiculous"...


What I've Been Doing and Where I've been

Posted by Canis Minor , 05 November 2011 - - - - - - · 2,286 views

Well, here I am, folks. A month's hiatus and the best you're getting is a quick blog entry. I tend to doubt many of you really noticed my absence, but I still feel the need to explain myself, since I was signed up for a couple of things.I've been pretty sick the last month. I won't bore you with the details, but suffice to say, don't e...

Welcome to an all new segment of The Philosophy of Nerdism . Despite what you may have thought when you clicked on this, there will be no actually depiction of a fight. Sorry, folks.SHOWdown!!!!  is where I will compare and contrast two 'shows'. By this, I'm referring to movies and television. With each entry I'll pick two...

Heya, folks. According to a small newsletter sold in coffee shops and other such establishments, playing the MMO, World of Warcraft may have finally benefited someone's life.So this Norwegian kid saved his sister by imitating WoW. Great, just great. Whatever works I guess.It does beg the question: how threatening can a moose actually be?"Hey, Rock...

Yeah, yeah. So, I was busy yesterday and couldn't update. Big freaking deal.

Nearly everyone who's ever played a Capcom fighting game will tell you that it's a blast. But what makes them so great? Welcome to Anatomy of a Game, my first blog feature. In it, I'm going to try to disect games so that I can see what makes them tick.Anyway, back on topic. Little bit of backstory. Capcom basically pioneered the fighting game...

Hi, guys. Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been around on the site for a while. Most of you probably didn't give it a second thought. I just wanted to say that, yes, I am still alive and intend to begin contributing to Electric Ferret once again (time permitting).I suppose I'll explain my absence, just in case somebody was actually...


Canis Minor's Top Ten Strangest Anime

Posted by Canis Minor , 24 March 2011 - - - - - - · 3,915 views

Anyone who watches anime regularly can tell you that most of the shows are pretty good. But the fact of the matter is that it's just a form of TV show. There's crummy anime and more importantly, there's weird anime. Here are my top ten picks for the weirdest anime ever. Please keep in mind that this list is purely subjective, so if one or more...


Random Review: Gunsmith Cats

I love the Salvation Army. They sell a bunch of trash that I don't need but will buy anyway for reasonable prices. As a matter of fact, the last time I was there, they were selling VHS tapes for 10 cents a piece. Now, I know what you're thinking. "VHS?!? Why would you want any VHS tapes?!?", maybe if some of the teenyboppers happen...


The Game in Review 3: Shadow of the Beast

Posted by Canis Minor , 31 January 2011 - - - - - - · 1,706 views

My last entry was filler, and I apologize for that. Unfortunately "The Black Bass" is a game about which I have little to say. Today's game, however, has left me both speechless and unable to stop talking about it.http://www.mobygames.com/images/shots/l/36355-shadow-of-the-beast-genesis-screenshot-title-screen.gif I present to you "Shadow...

If there's two things in the video game universe that have been argued to high heaven, they are the best game ever and the worst game ever. In today's GIRE, I'll reveal what I think is the worst game ever.

Irritation Thursday

"And now for something completely different"As we near the end of the first month of the new decade, I would like to rant about something. By this time, most video-game magazines, websites, etc. have put out their various best/worst lists. One game that has come to my attention is Metroid: Other M. Now whether you hate this game or love it, I don...


The Game in Review episode 1

Posted by Canis Minor , 25 January 2011 - - - - - - · 1,378 views

I'm going to try something new. I'm going to start reviewing video games, but not necessarily new ones. You see, I'm the kind of person who loves 'retro' games. Don't get me wrong, I love the newer games, but you can't beat the classics. There's the ones we all know, sure, Super Mario Bros., Street Fighter II, Doom, Tetris,...


Random Review: Despicable Me

Posted by Canis Minor , 13 December 2010 - - - - - - · 1,234 views

With this film coming out on DVD tomorrow, I figured I'd give anyone who's interested a head's up on it. The film's plot is fairly simple. An evil scientist bent on acquiring the status of el numero uno super-villaino decides to steal the moon. In the process he adopts three little girls so he can steal a shrink ray from his rival (it'...

If you are using any of the following reasons to vote on a CBUB match, please, for your own sake, rethink your methods. 1. "I didn't read the setup, but I like Character X more than Character Y, so I'll vote for him. "          It's not a popularity contest. Consider the setup and the powers.2. "I haven't read the setup, but I...

"They Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To" I enjoy sick days (aside from the being sick part). They're a wonderful opportunity to catch up on all the time wasting crap I usually do. Naturally, with all that free time, I end up with some kind of video game controller in my hands. Be it the Wii, GameCube, Dreamcast, NES, whatever, I'll...
