Tall Angry Monster

Holy Crap!

I realize the comic has finally taken a new direction, but did anyone else notice that Ctrl-Alt-Del got really depressing for a while? I'd have stopped reading CAD, but its not like I have anything better to do. Besides, its better now, and I've forgiven the writer for the series melancholy strips. Ordinarilly I can hold a grudge with the best of 'em, but when your own comic lacks... style...its hard to complain too much.

In other news, I succumbed to stupid hype once again, and picked up another $60 title despite that little nagging voice in the back of my mind. I'll let you decide if the voice is schizophrenia, or just an annoying girlfriend. But back to the hype. The Title is Call of Duty: World at War. Or as I refer to it, Call of Duty: Piece of Shit Sequel to a Good Game.

I'd give the game a review, but how about instructions for a virtual experience instead?
1. Print out several screen shots from COD2 or COD4.
2. Eat large quantities of White Castle "Sliders". Wash them down with some prune juice, or Milwaukee's Best.
3. Wait 4 hours.
4. Punish your toilet.
5. Wipe your ass with the screen shots.
Congratulations! You're qualified to develop games for Treyarch!

Still need a summary? Here's one anyway:
The campaign is terrible. Enemies respawn infinitely until you advance (for funsies, try advancing using only your knife). Multiplayer apparently takes place in a Kennel, because there's always 7 fucking dogs humping your leg. The game's sole saving grace, a sweet ass Zombie Mode, only has one level, with poorly placed weaponry. Save your coin on this one. Buy yourself a $60 hooker instead... or 60 $1 hookers.

I need to go...uh...run errands now
