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't care. Honestly, I haven't played it. What bothers me is... well to quote GameSpy.com... Now why did this bother me? The "hasn't been completely ov

A Day in the Life of a Character Reviewer

Ladies and Gentlemen! This is Marvel's Corner!   Today I dive into one of the hardest jobs on the Internet (and by job, I actually mean volunteering. I have yet to be paid!). The job? Working on the Electric Ferret Site, as an Official Reviewer.   Yes. Every little secret, from the end of the year parties, to the staff only section of the site.

The Game in Review episode 1

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, the list goes on and on. The point is, I'm going to look at ones that you may or may not have heard of.   That having been said, here is today's Game In Review:     Virgin G

Stuff? Stuff?? Where are you stuff? Here stuff!

Well, a few weeks ago, I had a nice long conversation with myself. Other than figuring out that conversations with yourself aren't as much fun as they used to be, I also came to realize maybe its time to actually try this blog-thing out. Now, I don't expect to have thousands of loyal followers, and I don't even expect to need an on-line store. No sir, I'm doing this just for the fun of it. What is IT, you ask?   IT, well... THIS is going to be a place where I'll review CBUB matches and FPL Char

Bad Assassin CH 1-3

This is a story I started a while ago. I finally got around to writing the 3rd chapter. The main character is basically half Johnny Bravo, half Bullseye with a twist... Tell me what you think...   BAD ASSASSIN (CH 1-3)     “*vulgarity* it…†said Jonny as he flicked the half finished cigarette on the sleazy bar floor.   He ran his fingers through his oversized blond pompadour and adjusted his shades.   It was time to kill someone. He also had to buy a mountain dew.   He looked down at his

( Sieg and Rev’s adventure Part 1. For the first chapter, it will be from Rev and Siegfried’s point of view.) Siegfried’s POV   We had finally stopped the threat that had attacked my and my friend’s worlds. Although we did lose Raziel, who …well I know this might sound very approitate for a knight like myself to say but I didn’t really like him much anyway. I even died during the time I spent with my little group! But eventually, I was brought back obviously, or else I wouldnâ

In the blackness of the shrine, the vampire king spoke to the dark god. “I need more power… Give me more… power…†“I have given you all the power I can in my current state. If you wish to see ultimate power, free me from my prison…†  “Travis pay attention!†Mrs. Frost yelled as she slammed her hand on my desk. I woke with a start as I was snapped from my dream.

Random Review: Despicable Me

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's a long story and would require spoilers). This film is a lot of fun. So here it is. My review for 'Despicable Me'.   Eye: Fifteen years ago a film called 'Toy St

Digital Comics? Salvation or annihilation!?

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen! This is Marvel's Corner!   Now, today I take on a formidable threat to comics, which, up until recently, I had avoided. What could this strange thing be? What could cause such a divide in opinions? The answer's simple. Digital Comics! So step on board Marvel's train of challenges and puzzles. Look at the picture, which is half way done. Look at the book, and behold the illustrations! Etc.  __________________________________________________ Today's Topic: Digit

Halloween Edition: Top 10 Comic Book Costumes

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen! This is Marvel's Corner.   First of all, Happy Halloween everyone! Now's the time of the year when children are free to knock on random houses, and receive free candy. Did I mention that you can dress up as anything? Add in all those costume parties for those too old to trick or treat, and you have a pretty awesome holiday.    But in comics, where people can dress up as anything everyday, costumes have to be pretty awesome for anyone to notice.

Ten Ways NOT to Vote on a CBUB Match

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'm sure that Character X will win no matter what." Read the setup. I cannot stress this enough. It doesn't always happen, but the setup can determine who would

How to Save the CBUB

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen. This is Marvel's Corner!   Now, before we begin, I want to apologize for the our absence. You may not know it, but due to the dire economic recession, I was force to fire most of my staff.    Well, the staff didn't take it that well, (They kept talking about the fact that they needed to feed their families or something). In desperation, they tried to keep me from blogging (They even formed picket lines!) Well, a few months later, and the strike is officially o

Anatomy of a Game Episode 3

"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 pick it up and play it. But today I was in a Pokemon state of mind. Call me what you want, but the endless hours I spent playing that game while I was much younger h

Anatomy of a Game Episode 2

This segment is a little different than its predecessor. Right now, I'd like to discuss a problem I have with modern video games. A little background: My friend recently got my NES working. It had sat in our basement for years before we even discovered it, and even then we couldn't get the stupid thing to run. Finally, this guy just fooled with it for a few minutes and it runs fine. As a result, I'm now currently searching for a decent gaming rehab facility to battle my addiction to Dr. Mario. A

Random things about me

Favorite video games:Bioware RPGs and KOTOR 2, Brawl, Civ Rev, Uncharted I love Bioware and I love all their RPGS equally. They all have their own strengths. Mass effect has the best combat and player customization(though i wouldn't mind doing away with the dialogue tree; voice acting limits dialogue), KOTOR had the best atmosphere and greatest party member(HK), Jade Empire was funniest and had the most interesting morality(even if in practice it still boiled down to be a unrealistic saint or an

Random Review: The Expendables

The Expendables is a movie that can be summed up as, "mediocre storyline, decent acting". If you haven't heard of this film, it has some pretty big name actors in it, namely Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, and Mickey Rourke. Bruce Willis and Arnold Shwartzeneggar also appear in what is probably the best scene in the entire movie. Anyways, let's take a look at this film.   Eye: Visually, this film is very good. The special effects are excellent and the sets are good. Generally, the cam

End, a short story about the end of the universe

I wrote this for the CBUB Tournament, then I saw that it was both a fight and 250 words long, I had to change it. I figure it will go to waste, so I'm posting it here.   *****************************************************************************************************   Once there was a garden, with hedges growing towards the sky, and flora abundant in a rich tapestry of life, intersecting and interacting as life must.
