Immediately after completing the script for today's comic I was compelled to write an alternate version. Enjoy!

title: Virtual Boy 2: Gunpei Yokoi's Revenge

zombie gunpei yokoi: <I <em>will</em> have my revenge on Nintendo, Iwata-san!>
Satoru Iwata: <But I didn't have anything to do with your firing and murder, Yokoi-san! It was all Yamauchi-san!>

zgy: <Nintendo wronged me, and it is Nintendo that will pay! Or <em>you</em> will!>
si: <Okay, okay! I'll do as you ask!>

3: *at TGS '05, SI giving keynote holding up rev controller*
si: <So it is with great pleasure that I now present you with the Revolution!>

4: *zgy backstage*
zgy: <And so today Nintendo begins its slow descent into complete failure. Muahahahahaha!>


Drive-By Movie Reviews

Stuff I watched this weekend:

  • Pitch Black - Thumbs up. Excellent characters, effects, acting, pacing, etc. Also quite pretty in HD.
  • The Ring - Thumbs up. Not as good as the Japanese original, but still creepy, interesting, and entertaining.
  • The Ring Two - Thumbs down. Not a bad movie, per se, just pointless and kind of generic. (I haven't seen Japanese original for this one.)
  • Hustle & Flow - Thumbs up. And I want the soundtrack, damnit.
  • White Noise - Thumbs down. Neat concept at heart; Raudive Voices (called EVP in the movie) are quite intriguing. Unfortunately the movie veers off in a more generically 'supernatural' direction and the plotline just isn't very interesting.
