Just caught the new Wallace and Gromit movie preview.  What an absolute treat for any animation fan.

I shit you not good people.  The voice actors spewing cheesy lines into a microphone for a day or two think they deserve a cut of the royalties from videogames.  Has the world gone freaking insane? 

Let's let GameSpy's Fargo answer.

Tired of all the Episode III hype?  Have you ever wanted to see the first Star Wars trilogy performed by one person in about an hour?  Who hasn't right?

Check out this one man Star Wars trilogy performance (he also does a one man Lord of the Rings trilogy show in case you were wondering).

There's an interesting new gaming magazine on the horizon... JumpButton Magazine.

"A magazine that focuses on videogame culture as both an art form and a way of life. A magazine that believes gaming is as much about who we are, as it is about what we play and how we play it."

Finally an art magazine I can actually read.    I hope the launch of the magazine goes well -- it'd be nice to read a gaming mag that isn't just focused on current game reviews.  We'll keep you posted when the first issue is available.

Just when you think you've done something with your life along comes a site like this that puts your meager accomplishments into perspective.

Finally, a site where you can see a map of all the states you've visited in the USA or the countries you've visited in the world. Much easier than placing pushpins on a map.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 are certainly making a splash what with all the advancements in doodad and gizmo technology. Microsoft may have a few months to establish some customers, but Sony looks to have the advantage in terms of tech specs and cool looking hardware (always a bonus). 

To hammer home why you need a PS3 the day it comes out here is a must see video of the upcoming Killzone 2 using IN GAME footage.  Un-effing-believable.

On my quest to make sense of the vast wasteland that is the internet I came across a lovely little Illustration blog with bazillions (give or take a gazillion) of cool artsy links.

While browsing Drawn!'s blog I came across a must see for the Manga fan in all of us... Garnier's Manga Head.  Unfortunately, my hair isn't quite long enough to pull off any of the cool styles.

Check out these stunning Age of Empires III screen captures from GameSpy.  The picture of the fort in the forest and the ships sailing are just amazing. Wowzah.

As much as I hate Marvel right now for their idiotic lawsuits of the 'City of Heroes' developers, I'm kind of excited to see what they do with their new movie deal with Paramount (up to 10 movies in 8 years).

Check eeeeet.

There's a fun little typing test I caught on ExtraLife today.  Give it a shot if you're bored.

You might have noticed a couple of errors on the forum and gallery. I assure you your data is being saved and is secure.  Please bear with us while the server transfer goes through even when you encounter the occassional *gasp* 500 error.  We are almost done, but it might take a few days for the domain to propogate on the Internet with the new address.

Update: We'll be moving the database over sometime this weekend so the site might be down for up to an hour and we're still working to figure out why some of the dimensions of the detail files are getting warped when uploaded.

Once again, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to PM me.
