Musings from the Mayor of the Internet


Whip it — into shape!

Have you seen the new trailer for Konami’s new Catstlevania fighting game on the Wii? If not, you really should.

Holy shit does that not look good. Just about everything about it is wrong; the graphics are chunky and odd, a lot of the characters have been reimagined in rather poor ways (I don’t recall Maria Renard being six years old before, and was Simon Belmont always so righteously effin’ metal? No he was not), the dialogue is terrible, and how ’bout that voice acting? I have no idea if it plays well — since you can’t really tell that from a trailer regardless — but what I do see does not bode well.

On the bright side, even though I’m sure there’s a clock tower stage, I have no reason to believe the game contains any medusa heads.

Assume the Stance

On my way to the symphony tonight, the train passed a sign marked "passenger assistance" from which someone had cunningly removed the I. This left a large white sign reading PASSENGER ASS STANCE.

What level do warriors get that at? Since it sounds like the exact right stance for at least one warrior I can think of offhand.
