Olde Tyme Waves
Okay, I’m not usually video game giddy, but Metal Gear Solid 2 : Substance is out for PC now. It wasn’t entirely clear to me before why I went out an bought a new computer last month, but it is obvious now – I was preparing for this day. Or not this day, specifically, but the day about a week and a half ago when the game was released… without my knowledge… and I probably wouldn’t have known if Kyle hadn’t told me… Fine – maybe it’s all a little less divinely-inspired than I’d like. But I still need to get this game. I finished Metal Gear Solid something like five times on two different platforms. I could finish that game in my sleep. It was so good. I hear in this one you don’t get to take the ‘kill em all and let the coroner sort em out’ tactic quite so much, and there’s more stealthiness required. I dunno, I don’t do stealthy so well.
Radiohead are not happy about the fact that their new album is all over the internet. Not so much for the fact that it’s being traded, but because this is still not a final mix and they would prefer that works they regard as being unfinished and not up to their standards be widely available.
It’s been a while since I’ve had a giant squid post, and I know you’re all really disappointed by that, but I make it up to you now with a colossal squid post. Check that mofo out – that is one bad-ass mollusc.
