Journal: Review - Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Sep 21, 2007

I know it's been a while since the game was released, but I had to write something after reading too many of the reader-submitted reviews at GameFAQs, and getting the feeling that I really don't belong. I could only read enough reviews rated 8, 9, or 10 before I started to lament the backsliding of the Metroid franchise as well as the passing of time.

If the latest offering by Retro Studios has done nothing else of historical significance, it's drawn a very sharp line between gamers, old and new. Sadly, just as it happens with college and professional sports, I'm reminded of my own age once again.

Journal: Nintendo Takes Sony to School (Economy 101) Nov 20, 2006

I'm an EB employee in Columbus, Ohio, and I helped open the store on Sunday for the Wii launch. I wasn't around for the PS3 launch, but my manager was, and according to him our store has sold one game for the PS3 so far. On the other hand, we've sold at least 30 or 40 Wii games since the Sunday launch. Apparently not many shoppers want to play games for the PS3 (yet), and Sony obviously has eBay to thank for their sales reports.
