Where the scary lives

October 28, 2005 by Tim

Shadow of the Colossus is absurd in it’s beauty. Once you get past the rough, pixelated textures, and the somewhat awkward control scheme for jumping and grabbing things, you get to the fluid animation and ability to kill very large lumbering monstrosities of stone and flesh. Good stuff.

I played some more of it last night when I should have been sleeping. Maybe I was sleeping.

Apparently on the front page of the business section in the Chicago Tribune yesterday, they featured an article about how young people get their news from the internet. Irony aside, they showed a picture of Josh Darrah, a freshman at Northern Illinois University as he “browsed news websites during a break from his classes”.

But in the picture, on the laptop, he had a Ctrl+Alt+Del comic open. Rock on, Josh.

It appears I am going to be made to suffer the indignities of the Halloween celebration this weekend, up to and including wearing a guise of something I’m not. I’ll let you know how that goes.
