Game Brainsss

This week's Game Brain, now with 50% more brain-related puns!

Blunda from Down Unda!

This week, I'm calling the Censorship Board of Australia out on their BS. Have look here.

I should be careful about pissing off Australia, though. I'm terrible at Jarate and counter-sniping.


OK, so Game Brain is in today's Herald, but wasn't posted online. It's probably the last thing to go in the paper, and my editor forgets to upload it. Never fear! I'll get it posted this evening when I go into work.

Brutal Legend Review

Chicks dig it, dudes envy it--All Hail the Druid Plow!

All in all the campaign alone, though short, would be worth the ticket price for this unique gaming experience. Every aspect of the game is impressive artistically and technically. Brutal Legend offers more than the single player though it offers an exciting multiplayer experience as well. Read the full review at The Venturian.

New features

Next week's column is done! I threw in as many Australia-related puns as I could.

A big thanks to those that weighed in on last week's column at the Western Herald website. I'm working on getting a better flow between the column and the Herald, so you don't have type as much. Working on a Facebook page too; I've lost interest in Twitter, so don't hold your breath on a feed.

Speaking of feeds, I've neglected RSS. I'll do my best to get that included along with the new buttons I have planned. My web design class has made me more aware of accessibility issues, so I'm trying to do better.

This Week's Column

Game Brain: the charm of story-driven games

Think Australian

I'm thinking about doing next week's column today (or at least starting it). One topic I've been wanting to cover is Australia and why they are so ban-happy over there. Their censorship rivals Europe (mainly Germany). Crikey!

So, I need to do a little research about the organizations that are responsible for this red tape. If I word things right (and by right I mean harsh and funny), I'll probably piss off WMU's Australian Student Organization. If one exists. Like I said, research.

Shrimp on the barby!

Game Brain: feeling a little cheap and used?

A-Rab Monay

As if the title "The Ballad of Gay Tony" wasn't inflammatory enough...

I'd be an idiot for expecting GTA to have good taste. I'd also be an idiot for not enjoying this trailer and looking forward to the expansion. It's just too bad that there's bound to be all sorts of negativity about this "racism". But when has GTA ever been about fine, upstanding, law-abiding citizens?

Mobsters, gangstas, European crime lords... it's all fair game. It's also entertainment, so don't take it too seriously.
