James Webb Telescope

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

  Random thing of the day. I arrived in Orlando, Fl today at my hotel when I saw this really large honeycomb looking thing. I thought it looked neat. Later after entering the hotel I found out it is a Full Scale Model of the James Webb Space Telescope! It was pretty neat. NASA seems […]

Gas and comic book prices

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

There is an interesting article over at Comic Book Resources today that takes an editorial look at how raising gas prices are either affecting comic books now, or will be soon. Ahh, who thought that we would be looking at $3.00 for a gallon of gas a regular thing.  Current Music: Röyksopp – 49 Percent […]

Wii Price

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

Well, it looks like the Nintendo Wii will be $250 US or less, which will make the Nintendo Wii the cheapest of the next round of video game systems. It will be neat to see if Nintendo’s concept is something that the American public will buy up or not. Current Music: LCD Soundsystem – Tired

Death Note Anime!

Monday, May 22nd, 2006

Found out today that a Death Note TV animation got announced in Japan! The news can be read over at Animaxis’s news site. I’m really excited about this because I have been really enjoying the Death Note manga that has been being released by Viz in the US. Another TV series to look forward to. […]

The cost of video game systems

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

There is an neat article that can be viewed here that talks about how the cost of video games over the years.

I was surprised to see where systems like the Neo-Geo and the 3DO fall in inflationary […]

Interesting Evangelion Article

Friday, May 12th, 2006

Check out this new article on Evangelion over at MSN news. The article is very interesting because it reveals that the Evanglion movie was being worked on while the TV show was airing. Very interesting stuff since it was widely believed that the movie was done in response to a lot of fans who didn’t […]

Regular Wii Controller

Friday, May 12th, 2006

The regular Nintendo Wii controller was finally revealed at this year’s E3. This answers the question of how people will be able to play all of those cool downloadable NES, Genesis, and Turbografx titles, as well as the backwards compatibility for Gamecube. It looks like a decent controller, but the only odd thing to me […]

Ps3 price has been announced

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

Well, the ps3 price was announced last night during the Sony Press conference (yeah, I ended up listening to a audio stream of the press conference). The press conference was by and large pretty boring (the Nintendo press conference I went to a couple of years back was a much better at getting the crowd […]
