Something in RAGE seems eerily familiar...

My Gears 3 Midnight Launch Experience

So I went to the midnight launch at my local GameStop last night to pick up the limited edition of Gears of War 3. I was in line for 2 hours in the pouring rain, with no umbrella and just a hoodie. It was cold and wet and overall, just not a fun time, but thanks to the Global TV app, I did get to catch up on the first episode of Survivor. At about 11:30pm they finally let the first 20 or so people into the store to wait, which moved me to the door behind a group of 4 guys. I figured it would only take about 10-15 minutes to get through those 20 people, so I was looking at roughly another 40 minutes waiting out in the pouring rain.

As we were waiting there, a BMW pulls up along the curb, beside the 40 or 45 person deep line and sits there for a bit. After a few more minutes, it pulls over to the lot and parks in the handicapped spot. Not a big deal I figure since it was around 11:55pm and there's not going to be much traffic at that time. Then this short guy with gold chains gets out, walks over to the line and stands sort of beside and sort of in front of me. I look around and no one says anything. Okay.

I looked down at him and while he's avoiding eye contact I said to him "Yeaaaah, you're not getting ahead of me" and he goes "why don't you say that to these guys?" pointing to the four guys in front of me. My first thought was maybe he needed more help than just that parking space. I replied "because they've been in line for 2 fucking hours," slightly annoyed by his hubris and absurdity. Still not looking at me he said "Whatever. What are you gonna do? Push me out of line?" I looked at him and said "I'm not going to touch you, I'm just letting you know." Then he started mumbling "... tough guy..." and other wonderfully endearing terms. Two hours I had been standing there in the freezing, pouring rain, and suddenly this arrogant prick comes out of nowhere to insult me? What. The. Fuck.

After a couple minutes, he took a step behind me and waited there in front of two other guys who had been there for just about as long as I had. About ten minutes later, the employees opened the door to the store to let some people out and they let the 4 guys in front of me and myself in. We waited in the store for about another 10 minutes before the line moved at all, not that I minded, being out of the rain was nice. Once more than a few customers left, they opened the doors to let in some more folks.

When they opened the doors, I heard some yelling and of course, the guy pushed his way into the store while the employees at the door were telling him to go to the back of the line. He was all "Whatever, man" and lined up behind the two guys he was in front of outside. Whether they had eventually said something to him as well, I don't know. The employees then yelled to the two guys at the cash and said -while pointing- making sure everyone in the store looked right at him, "When this guy gets up there, don't serve him. He cut in front of everyone" and the guy had the nerve- or just the limited mental capacity to understand- and goes "No I didn't." No, of course you didn't, and the 40 people you cut in front of didn't see you do it either.

Standing in line, looking at him, I thought to myself, "No, you didn't cut in front of everyone. You didn't cut in front of me, you jerkoff." So I bought my copy and walked out of the store, saying thanks to the employees at the door- which was actually more of a "sorry you guys have to put up with shit like this" than anything else really.

When I left, the guy was still standing in line, looking at his phone as if nothing had happened. I seriously feel bad for the guys who were working at the GameStop last night. Why one self-entitled asshole like that has to ruin something that they are doing for everyone is beyond my comprehension. Are you that much an asshole that you're just going to try and piss off all these people so you can buy your precious videogame 20 minutes earlier? I wonder how many other times and places this crapweasel has pulled that stunt and gotten away with it. I'm guessing plenty since he is apparently still thinking he can.

Anyways. Gears. Hooray.

Vive La Resistance

Today I had a chance to head downtown to check out the upcoming PS3 title, Resistance 3. The beta has been out for a week or so, but this was a chance to get some hands on time with the single player campaign.


There were about 12 or so TV's set up, each with different configurations for playing. Some had the game running in 3D with Move controllers, some in 3D with regular controllers, some normal with Move and some Normal with controllers. Having never used the gun peripheral for the Move, I gotta say it was more than a little awkward the first time. I opted out and went to find a station that had a regular controller.


Once I was settled on the grey footlocker that was laden with a spray painted "Resistance 3" logo, I was off and running, killing more Chimera than you could shake a stick at. The gameplay was fast, fluid, and furious, and having never played a Resistance game before - I know the gist of the story- I was impressed with how the game played over all. Mind you I did only play for about 20 minutes or so, but what I played, I liked.

After some talking to friends and watching a bit more of the gameplay, it was time to take off and head home, but not before grabbing this little ditty to add to my wardrobe. Christ this shirt is bright.

Killzone 3: The Helghast Edition

I am a sucker for collector editions of games. I'll straight up admit it. Normally, if they offer something fantastic, I'll jump on them day one, but if it's a game I'm not particularly excited for, I'll wait for a price drop before I grab them. Killzone 3 was a game I wanted to play as it is just a phenomenal looking game, but I'm not big on FPS games on the PS3 due to the controller.


The Killzone 3 collectors edition is one I wanted to get from day one, but the price was just too much at the time. I do so love special editions that feature large items like the Halo 3 Legendary Edition and the Halo Reach Legendary Edition, which included Master Chief's helmet and a sculpture of the the Noble Team, respectively.

The Killzone 3: Helghast Edition came with a large Helghan Helmet and a smaller figure of a cloaked Helghan Sniper. Both pretty cool, along with an artbook, soundtrack, ingame items and so forth and of course, the game itself. GameStop has Daily Deals, most of which are usually nothing to write home about, but last week they had dropped the price on the Helghast Edition from $129.99, down to $29.99.


That's one hell of a deal and just too hard to pass on. So now as part of my collection, I have a pretty awesome looking Helghast Helmet sitting on my shelf and my only second PS3 game.

Less Chatter, More Splatter

A couple weeks ago I hit up Sgt. Splatters Paintball with a couple friends. In our group was Justin Amirkhani from Xbox.ca, Marissa Roberto from Electric Playground, her boyfriend Cisko, and Steve Tilley from Reviews on the Run.


I personally have never been to paintball before so I was under the impression you would need to bring a change of clothes in case you get shot and so forth. With my gym bag full of clothes, I took the two hour bus ride there only to find out that they give you overalls to cover your clothes. Oopsie scoopsie.


After we did the brief explanation of how the guns work and whatnot, we got our gear and headed to the field. We were put on a team with about 10 other people and went to it. I think we played about 5 rounds and then called it a day. It was seriously disgusting in the arena, with slime covering just about every surface, but all in all it was a fun time. Although I never shot anyone, at least not to my knowledge, I didn't get popped either, so I'll call it a win.

The Glowing Stars EP

Awhile back I ordered the physical copy of my friend Lizzie Cuevas' band - The Glowing Stars- first ever EP release. Being a chiptune band that uses both vocals and Gameboys for their sound, it was only natural that they used old GameBoy cartridges is their platform for their inaugural album. Mine arrived a week or so ago, and I must say I am quite pleased with it. Nice job, guys!
