My money is on the reissues of classic adventure games like Full Throttle, Maniac Mansion: Day of the Tentacle & Grim Fandango...watch it be Rescue on Fractalus and Ballblazer, though.

Ballbazer for Iphone, yay!!!

@eclipsesis:

Myth: the Fallen Lords (Myth 2) was actually a pretty fun RTS back in the day.  Really bloody, too.

No sir, I don't like it.

I consider mainstream anything on rotation for "Clear Channel" radio broadcasting stations.  So, the majority of that commercial, heavily marketed music doesn't interest me.  There are exceptions, of course, as I mentioned in one of the guilty pleasure threads.  I (shamefully) enjoy bubblegum pop.  But, most of what I listen to is either alternative from the 80s-90s and college/indie rock or classic stuff from the 60s & 70s.  Also traditional jazz which is a music genre that doesn't even have broadcast radio stations in the US anymore unless you count PBS radio after midnight.

Who wouldn't enjoy playing as a pig-tailed, school girl uniformed anime cutie with a minigun?

This looks to have more in common with Toy Story or Army Men than Team Fortress 2.  Besides TF2 isn't the only class based FPS on the market.  Tribes came out in 1998, is that a TF2 ripoff?  Well, maybe a Team Fortess ripoff (I prefer homage!) which came out in 1996, but there have been many similar homages to that classic game style since then.  After all, do you think no one is going to try and explore the 3rd person multiplay shooter template in 14 years?

Why get your panties in a bunch over this?  It could be fun.

Last night, FOX aired the 1991 episode of the Simpsons "Stark Raving Dad" where Homer gets sent to an asylum after wearing a pink shirt to work where he meets a big white dude who claims to be Jackson.  The last time this episode aired on FOX was in 1993.

I'm pretty sure Michael Pachter will determine who won the console war...in fact, I think he's already announced the winner so everyone can all go home now.

I'm working my way through Persona 4 and fiddling around with Sims 3 mostly.  I've also have SFIV from Gamefly on the shelf to take a crack at soon.  Beyond that, I don't know yet.
