@jacktrote: Uh... the shooting wasn't actually bad and I don't remember shooting 90% of the time unless you count summoning a murder of crows shooting.
Maybe it's just me, but the Best Shooter category should be decided more on gameplay than anything else, but the Game of the Year category is about the best game, not just controls. You want the GOTY to be a well-rounded experience with a great story, an appealing art style and amazing audio. Bioshock Infinite does that even if the controls aren't perfect. But hey, it's my opinion.
Then again, I looked at the other nominees for Best Shooter and there's COD 12, a broken Battlefield game and Metro which I played so little of, I can't form an opinion on the game. It seemed to be a weak year for shooters if those were the nominees.
Then again, why the fuck do I care? The awards show was shit. Awards mean nothing to me in the end.
I watched mostly for the Twitter snark and the snark was on full display.
I'm still wondering how Bioshock Infinite won Best Shooter when the worst part of the game is the shooting. Game of the Year, I can see that, but Best Shooter made little sense. At least the viewers did the right thing and vote The Lutece Twins for Best Character(s).
This company plans to land a craft on the moon in a few years. Let them mess around up there.
Jack Westelman (also known as Danny Wells) passed away on Thursday at the age of 72, but you may know him best as Lou Albano's sidekick Luigi in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. It's a bit of a coincidence he died in this, the Year of Luigi. The show was one of my favorites growing up and was yet another reason why I cherish the Mario games and characters. He'll be greatly missed.
Booze actually can be a good gift, but for close family never buy your standard shit. Always pick something a notch or two above. For example, my dad prefers Jack Daniels so I would get him the Single Barrel or some other high-end whiskey. If you don't drink his gift before the holiday and can't think of some useless gadget or device, go with something a bit different like an overnight stay at a nice bed & breakfast nearby, a night at the opera or a comedy show, the full spa treatment, monster truck tickets, whatever your family is into.
If all else fails, bath salts always make great gifts. Both kinds.
