Waxing the nostalgic with Johnny X.

A Short Interview with Johnny X from liabungalo on Vimeo.

Podcast with Life In a Bungalo

I annoyed the crap out of George Bungalo for about an hour the other day when we made a new podcast. It was edited heavily thankfully cause I was hopped up on coffee.

Danger Dudes take on Matt Hazzard!

Duke Nukem
Commander Keen
B.J. Blazkowicz

These names strike a tender chord with gamers of another time. A time of shareware and buying game really cheap at Radio Shack. A coming of age of video games, of these characters some when onto great things and some faded into obscurity. Some of these characters are forgotten and some will live forever.

Matt Hazard is not to be forgotten or taken lightly.

With a return to current consoles Matt Hazard is really to blow you to 8 bits with fire power, gusto and voice talent from Neil Patrick Harris. NPH, most recently seen on Intenets' Dr. Horrible, as the main protagonist.

Will Arnett is also lending his talents to the classic game series as well. Arnett, most recently seen in the hospital with his recently born son and that lady who is not Tina Fey from Saturday Night Live.

Be sure to check out the Matt Hazzard websites!



What do you know about the Wastlend?

Well a long time ago when disks were actually floppy, there was a game called Wasteland. This game started it all.

Wasteland was a post apocalyptic adventure set in the deserts of Las Vegas. It was awesome, it had really bad graphics and a a really awesome story.

EA knew how to make a game back then. I mean they do now, but more in that zombie cancerous borg kind of way of just absorbing things that are of your interest. But whatever we all have an EA games somewhere in our collection.

After the awesomeness of Wasteland came a "sequel" of sorts. This game was called Fountain of Dreams. This game took place in the sticky heat of Florida. Mutation and crocodiles, good times.

Two dimensions, little icons, dark humor, and explosively graphic dialogue were how these games were played. All of this was carried over to the Fallout series, which is for argument sake the sequels to these games. So get ready to play Fallout 3, but first learn about Fallout 1 and 2.

Big Girl in the House

Chung Li, not a dainty girl. Ok she has legs like a piano. Here is a new Street Fighter VI poster, showing off Chung Li's crushing thighs.

We also how the official movie poster of the the new movie Street Fighter: The Legend of Chung Li. Big blue mama will be played by the Canadian born half Chinese, half something white Kristin Kreuk. She is hot, and I think is wearing blue contacts.

Also in the printed media this month is Olivia Munn from that show on that channel that used have other shows besides crap almost all the time. She too is half AZN and half something else to make a hot hybrid. This is her from a recent photoshoot from Complex magazine.

Street Fighter VI is coming to consoles soon and is in high end arcades now. New Street Fighter movie will be out some time next year. Complex is on newsstands now!

Holy Crap! So Many Games! So Little Time!

This fall has been an explosion of games.

Six of the shortest no bullshit reviews ever..

Mercenaries 2. Part of me wants to love this game, most of me hates this game. A blowemup with not enough polish to make this game worth while. Uninspired maps, and terrain. Not at all worth the 60 dollar price tag, if you bought this new you don't know how to buy games. Used only, and only if you are desperate for something.

Star Wars Force Unleashed. I liked this game, it was fun and easy if you played it on easy. This game was meant for everyone. It was a casual action game, for the casual gamer, casually.
If you are not going to buy it now for price, definitely get once the at 60 dollars it is a bit steep, borrow this game, or buy used, you won't feel cheated if you pay full price.

Lego Batman. The best game of the recent Lego games. It is better than Star Wars simply because it is more realized in the puzzle solving and the it actually has some challenging elements which add to what was becoming stale game play. Really Indiana Jones was super cute, but got a little boring after awhile. With Lego Batman feel confident at a full price purchase.

Silent Hill 5. It finally got the bad taste of Silent Hill 3 out of my mouth. A good compliment to the series, and what should have been the sequel to the flawless Silent Hill 2. It is a horror game, so get it during the Halloween it is going to cost you. I think 60 bucks is a bit of a stretch for this game, but I certainly think it is worth he first used price you find for it.

Saints Row 2. A fun blowemup game. Yes there is some kind of comparison to GTA, but this game does not take it self nearly as seriously as Rockstars Flagship franchise. Cartoon levels of violence and character customization makes this game very entertaining. With cheat codes that can make you 20 feet tall, it is bound to be fun. Oh and it has a chain gun, demo packs and airplanes, three things that do not appear in GTA 4. If you have finished GTA 4 and really like sandbox games with the driving and the killing, be sure to check this out. New or used you should be satisfied.

Fallout 3. This was something I thought was never going to happen. Fallout 3. Fallout 3 is awesome. The combat system is something that will change the FPS RPG, forever. There is nothing like it on the market today. A great story and interface makes for a truly immersible gaming experience.

Baby get my fingers out of your mouth.

A very attractive, well put together eastern European woman has a baby.

That baby wants to eat me.

I'm sure he'd start with my fingers. Tearing away at my callused epidermis; gnawing the bones and sucking them dry.

Don't let ears of his little brown bear hoodie pull at your heart strings.

This baby is a monster, and is trying to eat me.
