Finally gave this a shot, and learned an immediate lesson: Name yourself Half Life 3 or Gabe Newell, enter the leaderboard, and everybody on the server will be out for your ass, haha. I swear, at least six players worked together to corner me or force me to split.

That was a lot of fun. I especially like the bits of accidental humor, like "Gabe Newell" chasing down and devouring "EA".

I think it's safe to say that DJ Hero 3 is but a pipe dream, despite the GH revival. That series was too good for this world. :(

And, of course, Hail to the Chimp 2, the Half Life 3 of minigame collections with titles stolen from old Simpsons gags. We've all been waiting with bated breath for Hail to the Chimp 2: Chimpin' All Over The World, but don't be surprised if it doesn't show up at E3.

Many Simpsons games have a pretty sick Burns.

Personally, I think there's just the right amount of content on the site, and I wish they would address this issue. I have exactly the right amount of time in my day to digest all of the content that interests me. What's the deal, GB? What happened to the days when there was entirely too much content, or a major lack of content?

I demand dissatisfaction!

Used to be "Shaggy", a nickname a friend had given me. It was taken on a forum where I had signed up, so it became "Shagg E". Most usernames don't allow for spaces, so I changed it to "ShaggE" and that stuck. When "ShaggE" is already taken, I add either "1771" or "21" to it. Neither number really means anything.

My avatar is (currently) Marilyn Manson, of whom I'm a big fan. Been thinking about changing it back to Freddy Krueger, of whom I'm a massive fan. Also I get bored of avatars quickly, so none stay all that long. I'm sure it pisses off those who look at avatars instead of names for identification. Sorry about that...

Children of the Corn 3: Urban Harvest - Both 1/5 and 4/5 simultaneously

I've (slowly) been working through the Children of the Corn franchise, as it's a big blind spot in my horror history. I finally got around to 3 just now.

Hoooooey. First thing first: it was absolutely dismal in countless ways. This is a bad movie. It's also a fucking GREAT movie. Screaming Mad George is no Tom Savini, but I still love his gore effects, and he really shines here. Urban Harvest is chock full of weird, hilarious kills and surreal sequences that kept me smiling and laughing through the godawful story and by-the-numbers "in the 'hood!" setting. And that big finale... holy shit. That was some Wishmaster style chaos right there (although a bit less OTT grotesque than Wishmaster's famous "OH GOD WHAT IS HAPPENING IS THAT GUY'S FACE A TREE SKELETONS CAN'T DO THAT OH GOD" scenes).

I can't believe I've had this gem on my shelf for weeks and didn't even know what delights it contained. Again, awful movie that I sincerely recommend to fellow genre fans. I had a blast with this.

Somehow I feel like my journey's going to get a lot rougher, though. Next up is the first of many direct-to-video sequels. The prospect of six more of these (including a made-for-TV remake of the original! Fuck...) is far scarier than He Who Walks Behind The Rows could ever be.

But I survived the entire Puppet Master series, and I can survive this foolish undertaking as well.

Carmack: "Thank you, and enjoy the rest of E3."

Carmack doesn't even work at id anymore.

YOU don't work at id anymore! *toddles away crying*

Hideo Kojima struts out onto the stage and says "Gotcha! Silent Hills is coming out next year! Also, a fully fleshed-out version of P.T.!"

Ex Machina - 5/5

Wow. Fuck. I'm not going to even get into it, as it'd just be a big spoiler fest, but I absolutely *loved* Ex Machina. I was expecting something along the lines of "Her" (another excellent AI film), certainly not anything like this.

I will say this, though: I saw most of the twists coming, but that last (and biggest) one got me good. That was some Twilight Zone level "Fuck the good guy, fuck the bad guy, robots win" shit. Awesome.
