Filler-iterature

Posted by Morbidiculous on 14/03/2010

This feels like the eighth or ninth time that some variation of “literature” has been punned on – that is exceptionally good milealage from just the one word!

Sartorical Questions

It means what it says: more filler, selected from doodling over the weekend!

Curse the Darkness

Posted by Morbidiculous on 07/03/2010

Yesterday was a day of intermittent blackouts from wild, stormy weather. If the only candles in the house weren’t Garfield shaped it would have been downright romantic! Things are still being updated, but enjoy the sensuous texture of a thick marker drawing.

Extremely juvenile observation about a conversation in Wodehouse’s The Romance of an Ugly Policeman:

‘I know she has taken my brooch. We have missed money. You must search her.’
‘Can’t do that, ma’am. Female searcher at the station.’
‘Well, you can search her box.’

WHAT DID HE JUST TELL YOU.

For Your Consideration, A Colossal, Hollow-Eyed, Chubby Owl

Posted by Morbidiculous on 04/03/2010

Beginning today, Chubby Owls are a universal symbol of change and transition. I mean, if they weren’t already.

Updates are continuing. A small collection of links for even further consideration:

Gallery of Memento Mori

Account of Tibetan Sky Burial Ritual

The Statistical Fate of Redshirts (this is far more Not Safe For Work than the previous two)

Gallery of Mystery Science Theater Art, (Prints of Thieves)

The first three links are of mild interest, but there is almost no excuse for skipping past anything that contains the phrase “Mystery Science Theater”. The excuse itself not only has to contain the phrase “Mystery Science Theater”, but also “we’re going to burn up upon re-entry”!

A Pal In Time For Valentine

Posted by Morbidiculous on 25/02/2010

Pal in time, you’re weeks tardy.

It’s a lackluster entry after five empty months, but this should be heralding in a whole new era of Morbidiculous comics over the next few weeks (this is the third fresh new beginning; it’s a very satisfying thing to announce and I admit I got a bit carried away)

There’s not a moment to lose!

Occupatience is a virtue

Posted by Morbidiculous on 14/08/2009

It has been an exceptional amount of time since the last entry, but there is good reason for this, if you will indulge me by skipping directly to the end! If you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO look at the comic, this particular comic has been held in reserve for over six months now and I think the public is finally ready to handle the uncomfortable truth that it speaks - wall to wall text in a comic is tedious and boring.

It’s true what they say, art intimidates life! insensitive_unemployment

If your experiences of unemployment are anything like this, it is probably just as well that you are not working in the public sector! Personally I believe that it would be society’s great loss, but I also thought that Tales of the Bounty Hunters was the magnum opus of the entire science fiction genre so these opinions are things that should be kept under sedation and surrounded by armed guards at all times in the future.

The next update should be a much larger and more interesting thing to read if that is the kind of thing that catches you by the khakis – Morbidiculous has been working on several side projects that should hopefully be ready in the next week or two! This is where enthusiasm comes to die. >:(

Not friggin' Boysenberry

Salt of a vinegar, that’s just in bad taste. A screengrab from The Lion King would have done the job, but I had to exhume and pervert a beloved acting icon to illustrate the point. There’s nowhere to go but up!

And here it is, faster then I thought: the end. :o

Comics are made by fools like me, but only Bears can climb a tree

Posted by Morbidiculous on 06/07/2009

bear_justice

 

It probably says something about the quality of these comics that parts that get cut off by a rebellious scanner and replaced by a Microsoft Paint editing job can actually result in an improvement! I mean seriously guys, wow, lookit that, a consistent font! : O

Anyway, I do not think this is a particularly good Morbidiculous comic. The best part of this comic is probably the title for this overall entry! Even that is a pretty unsophisticated reference, but it’s not like there’s an option to edit it right next to it on the blog dashboard or anything. Jeez you guys with your “simple solutions to retarded problems”.

Any further Grotesqueries?

Posted by Morbidiculous on 29/03/2009

Mellow hello, everyone anyone! You’ve been rewarded for your patience/apathy over this trying period: I am going to get right down to BUSINESS and not try to be the hero. This is an efficient overall policy for both hostage situations and blog posts.

Do werewolves deserve your sympathy? Maybe this will answer your questions.

warewolf_finalOkay, probably not.

It’s time for part 3 in what I like to call “A Series of Unfortunately Named Wars”!

The Pig War

In today’s hastily-skimmed-through-barely-understood-just-looking-for-capitalised-words news:  http://www.scribd.com/doc/13731776/Tracking-GhostNet-Investigating-a-Cyber-Espionage-Network

The discovery of the Chinese government’s GhostNet is kind of a terrifying and ominous development in world affairs, until I realised it probably has no association with SkyNet. IS THAT GOOD THING OR A BAD THING.

I TAKE IT BACK SKYNET, PLEASE REIGN IN YOUR MURDERBOT

Note: to see the today’s comics in its pure, unadulterated format, you will need to save  and open it with your usual opening program! Fun and games in editing programs!

The Hiatus That Ate Us

Posted by Morbidiculous on 06/01/2009

The most observant of you may have noticed that it’s been a particularly long period of inactivity since the last post! Well, I hope you like it when trends continue, because that means I don’t have to complete this sentence and in doing so, save myself valuable vowels for

We’d like to hope everybody of whatever dominant denomination they may be enjoyed Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and the weeklong event that is the Festival of International Beaver Smuggling. This year is apparently NOT going to provide us with many surprises (even a MERE CHILD could have predicted that it was going to be odd-numbered) but all the same, let’s give it the same support and love we might give a more numerically significant year,  like 2010. After all, we’re still another year closer to the Mayan end-of-times. :)

 

In the spirit of some deeply cynical and unfestive holiday, here are some links provided, WITHOUT CONTEXT:

Super Duper, Extra Special, Happy John C. Calhoun Day!

Posted by Morbidiculous on 03/11/2008

You’re probably shaking your head and saying, “Seriously? Dude doesn’t update on Hallowe’en and then mistakes it for a day commemorating a sub-par, seccessionist Vice President?”

Oh, how little you know!

Most people would content to just say that and leave it hanging, but allow me to explain why I believe John C. Calhoun is the perfect modern figurehead for a holiday celebrating the occult and macabre:

WOULD YOU STOP WITH THE SCREAMING AND HUDDLING IN TERROR ALREADY! Jeez! It’s just a photo! No, the guy HASN’T returned from the dead to wreak vengeance on his Yankee tormenters; you people are always jumping to that conclusion and it only ever ends in panic and Swedenborgianism! I would have thought you’d learned by now. :/

Have you all calmed yourselves down? Good. There’s a time and place for mass hysteria, but I’m going to hide the map to it and break your watch. You stragglers at the back will just have to catch up later. Rory C. Calhoun was a fairly mediocre, underacheiving Vice President, but he has the distinction of being the least photogenic one ever! Van Buren, you can take five. Sorry, I know we said you were needed. :/

An interesting note is that if you followed the mysterious link to Wikipedia, you’ll be privy to a terrifying timeline of pictures taken of Calhoun throughout his lifetime, an experience that I’m going to compare to watching the evolution of car crashes! Gawkers are welcome and not expected to have to show respect for human dignity or tip! :)

It tugs at the heart and wang. It’s wangwarming.

Onto the next stage of today’s post: horrifying Halloween pictures!

Attempted live action Nintendo mascot/abomination, Kirby!

The “probably has a really great sense of humour and a nice complexion in the afternoon”, hagfish

The woman of my dreams:

I’m still feeling a little bit hungry, so I’ll order the son of my dreams as well:

The bones were the best part… but next time I might just get a baby salad. :/

I’ve saved the scariest for last:

AAAAAAAAGHHHH THE FERRETS ARE REVOLTING AND WILL PLACE US ALL UNDER THE DOMINATION WE DESERVE FOR YEARS OF FERRET OPPRESSION

Oh, wait, it’s okay. They’re just polecats.

To help you get into the belated Hallowe’en and Dia Los Muertes spirit, here are some spooktacular video links! … There was only one day in this entire year when was appropriate to use the word “spooktacular” and I CAN’T BELIEVE I MISSED IT. I’m not waiting around three hundred and sixty five days for the next one, somebody point me to the nearest suicidemobile! >:O

I feel like I could take on the world!

Posted by Morbidiculous on 24/10/2008

*shrugs* He tripped me. :(

In related incidences:

Just a small update for today!

Let’s all think back to a happier time! A time of Star Wars Holiday Specials and beards capable of sapience! That’s right, the Seventies!

Waaaait. I meant the Eighties. I hope I’m forgiven for confusing the two. :/

After that social embarassmeant, I have developed a method for distinguishing between the two decades…

… one of them features Ronald Reagan and the other doesn’t!

QED:

Thank you for your aid in this demonstration, sir. I’ll let you get back to your grave and history books.

“What’s this?! TWISTEEED SISTEEER?!”

Um, no, actually, crazy man who suddenly interupts blog posts! I commend you and your facial gymnastics, though! :/

Before departing, here are a couple of amusing video clips. It’s so much easier than actually writing content! Fellow fans of Little Shop of Horrors and awful children’s shows rejoice; I think these clips are self-explanatory without any need whatsoever for any context or background, right?

Consider that a tribute to the late, great, and possibly irate, Levi Stubbs!

You probably shouldn’t consider that a tribute, though. :/

Did you hear that!? He’s HOOKED! Once again, 80’s television is here to teach us an important lesson about the link between Nintendo and narcotics!

Events have Spyro-alled out of control!

Posted by Morbidiculous on 21/10/2008

I’m so, so sorry for the title. I’ll never make a pun again!

…That’s a pledge I know I can’t keep. It will probably be broken by the end of this page. Keep your eyes peeled! :(

I wish I could tell you that I knew how this ended… probably happily? No, that’s just wishful thinking. And when I say wish, I don’t mean a genie was involved. Those guys are always trying to screw you over with their irony, anyway.

There is not a whole lot to report on! ALTHOOOOUGH… here is a scan I made of Adolf Hitler from Triumph of the Will in a kind of vaguely amusing posture:

You go get ‘em, tiger!

Alright, let’s say that was “by popular demand”. That’s a great phrase to use when you want to avoid personal responsibility!

Anyway, I thought that today I would express a fondness for Starcraft… here I go, I hope you ARE READY BECAUSE THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN WHETHER THOSE BUREAUCRATS IN WASHINGTON LIKE IT OR NOT. >:(

We here at Morbidiculous have a fondness for Starcraft, and are highly anticipating Starcraft 2, which is now for some reason being produced in a trilogy. I think there was a brief link to it in the last post. I’d look it up myself, but you need the exercise! Work those carpal tunnels!

Here is an article, fresh from 1up, with all of the facts and important details about Starcraft 2! Excited yet?! NO?! Well, maybe you should have spent more time writing erotic Starcraft fan fiction in your youth like we did, hmmmm?

Outside of this, a lot of fantastic games have been released lately. Farcry 2, Fallout 3, and probably a few more if I could be bothered getting up and looking at the latest issue of PC Powerplay which is sitting right over there. If you have a computer capable of running these games, let CERN know because they will need to borrow your processing power for a little while for their unholy experiments! At least, I think that’s what they spend their time doing, when they aren’t throwing those wild late night bloc parties that they’re also known for.

In other news, the global financial crisis continues, blah, blah blah blah blah, and apparently the use of several phrases from the Koran has delayed the Playstation 3 game LittleBigPlanet, but we aren’t exactly going to get up in arms about it. You know what is more interesting? According to urban legend, the breakfast staple, the croissant, was named and designed to commemorate the end of the Siege of Vienna in 1529, as a reference to the crescent on the flag of the defeated Ottomans (which, as we ALL know, is the international symbol for Islam… … and sleepy times everywhere)

If this is true, as all urban legends everywhere have a tendency to be, then it was certainly the ultimate act of disrespect to their foes! ADMIRABLY DESPICABLE! I TIP MY HAT TO THOSE VIENNESE JERKS. :)

However, suddenly… breakfast has taken a much darker tone. |:[

No! You fool, look out! It’s a trap!

He’s done for. There’s nothing we can do. :(

….

Oh well! No reason to let that ruin the Dias de la Muerte festivities! :D

A day on which Kurt Russell’s integrity is damaged… FOREVER?

Posted by Morbidiculous on 16/10/2008

In lieu of a comic today, Morbidiculous is going to draw your attention to the dire situation occurring at this very moment down at the local video store. ACTING LOCALLY, THINKING GLOBALLY. FLYING INTERNATIONALLY AND AT ECONOMY CLASS RATES.

Two ordinary copies of John Carpenter’s legendary film duo, Escape From L.A and Escape From New York, are the victims of what I can only presume is a cruel Halloween prank. Observe!

What did you spy with your little eye? The correct answer to that question is: inconsistent eyepatch shennanigans! :o

In all my years of criticising things with emotional significance to other people, I have never been more shocked and appalled. The continuity issues alone! How can we ever trust Snake Plissken again? I tell you, WE CANNOT. Frankly, I expected FAR BETTER FROM THE LIKES OF A COLLABORATION BETWEEN KURT RUSSELL AND JOHN CARPENTER.

The Thing, now that was a film! Even the absence of eyepatches can be overlooked… for the time being. If you’re living your life correctly, you should be automatically mentally inserting them into every film you watch anyway.

Rear Window? Check.

WALL-E? Of course!

Pirates of the Carribbean? I can’t see any reason not to – HEY! Don’t try to screw me up like that, that’s not funny. >:o

Importantly, however, now that this issue has been identified, we can get to work SOLVING it! Let’s all put the “end to world hunger and poverty” project aside for now and start afresh! And let’s be honest… it was a silly, flight of fancy idea to begin with!

Links and news:

Starcraft 2 trilogy announced; Blizzard cites “extreme lack of not quite enough money yet”

Actually…. that’s kind of it, for now! There have been interesting events in the world (Stephen Harper and his conservative party of Canada are riding high!) but nothing has recently been peaking my interest enough for me to work up the energy required to drag and click a mouse on it. QUIT SLACKING OFF AND GET A REAL JOB, POPULAR CULTURE. >:|

Seriously, don’t make me resort to being capable of entertaining myself for five minutes! BECAUSE I SWEAR, I WILL DO IT.

However, before I sign off, here is a message from our political sponsors.

He’ll fight for your right to free speech and soil erosion. But still… he’s an amoral bastard.

And a tantalising glimpse at next time’s comic:

Grim announcements and their repercussions!

Posted by Morbidiculous on 06/10/2008

Dear loyal readers and that one emotionally stunted stalker in Bangkok:

Today begins a new era in the fortunes of Morbidiculous… or maybe it’s really more of an epoch!

Era or epoch? It’s so hard to decide, I hate these moments of crisis! They remind me of dilemmas. :O

Well anyway, as I was saying. Thanks to the purchase of a brand new laptop computer, we are officially “back in the game”, if I’d ever played anything even resembling a sport in my life! But the expression will do for now until the entire foundations of language change! HURRY THE FUNK UP.

So first of all, new updates should be regular and forthcoming!

Secondly, it is now October, as I discovered when I was attacked by that pack of wall calendars (it’s a long story, it involves man playing God and then reaping some dire consequences) and you know what that means, don’t you?

HALLOWEEN IS APPROXIMATELY 26 DAYS AWAY, GIVE OR TAKE!

Of all the secular, non-denominational holidays not even celebrated in my native country, Halloween is without a doubt my favourite! Shortly followed by Dias de la Muertes, both in terms of placement on my  list AND chronologically! How about that for convenience! It was very thoughtful of the establishers of tradition to include me in their plans!

To celebrate the next twenty six days of anticipation and then the one day of unrelenting terror and dread, Morbidiculous will be attempting to follow a horror theme! Spooky.

Nightmares await!

Uuuuuh, wrong kind of nightmare, R.L Stine.

Still not quite there, keep trying!

You know what? CLOSE ENOUGH. :O

So, to sign off: the variety of links that’s become habitual, some of which may or may not entertain you; how should I know, I’m not your mother, leave me alone, get your kicks elsewhere, sickos! >:O

Gamers Bill of Rights Demanded; world poverty still a non-issue

…Moose milking and other excuses for a lack of updates

Posted by Morbidiculous on 04/09/2008

I hate it when they secularise holidays like this. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE COMMERCIALISM. :(

As you may have scratched your head and observed to whoever is in close vicinity to you, it has been quite some time since an update. WELL I would like to wholeheartedly apologise to you for that.

However, where other people would say “I’m going through some things right now” or “I was sick” or “I was held hostage by this guy who looked like Bruce Willis”, I will not insult your intelligence. I’m just going to blame it on moose milk.

MOOSE MILK. Compose your best song about moose milk and send it to me! I dare you. What are you afraid of!?

Links, if you can be bothered clicking on them (I know I couldn’t) :

A recent blog taking the world (on the internet) by storm:

http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/

I’m a white person and it appeals to my white sensibilities! It has been added to the sidebar if you are interested in an alternate link or you just like being redundantly redundant. KIND OF LIKE WHAT I JUST DID THERE. :O

http://falafel-king.freeonlinegames.com/

I will be completely honest with you, reader. I am only including this link because it contains the word “falafel”, one of the finest culinary words EVER CONCEIVED. It acheives a tie with “phlegmatic” on my personal top five. :)

Today… your valuable time is wasted by another Pokemon adventure

Posted by Morbidiculous on 30/07/2008

Scott Romsomair of VGCats did it first, but this is more amateurish and juvenile. Therefore: FOUR LEGS GOOD TWO LEGS BAD. I mean, therefore: MY SUPERIORITY IS UNQUESTIONABLE.

…Wait, I violated my “no referencing George Orwell after 6 o’clock” pact again… that thing IS SO HARD TO STICK TO. What was I thinking when I agreed to it?! :O

Once again it is just a comic update for today and some links… but on the 6th of August, to both celebrate and subvert the Australian release of Futurama: The Beast With A Billion Backs, Morbidiculous will be reviewing a perfectly ordinary, unlimited edition copy with no outstanding features purchased from one of the numerous chain retail stores. That doesn’t sound like much of a treat for anyone who’s been investing their energy into Morbidiculous, but for all you know, I could have just downloaded a copy and watched it already and am just purchasing a copy to assuage my unbearable guilt… BUT YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE A PRETTY MISTRUSTFUL AND CYNICAL INDIVIDUAL TO COME TO THAT CONCLUSION. Let’s hear no more about it!

Here are some great links, as vaguely alluded to:

A non-bulleted list of “retronyms”, which you would assume is just another annoying neologism (like tweens, or metrosexual) of this decade, the noughties, until you read this. Oh no, I actually used “noughties” as a description of this decade and am guilty of my own linguistic crimes! I’ll come quietly, officers. :(

Zombie Harmony, the world’s first and foremost dating site for the undead! It’s just traditional zombie dating, however; vampires and werewolves everywhere, you guys are ineligible. BLAME THE OUTDATED AND OPPRESSIVE POLICIES OF THE VATICAN. >:C

Ask Palpatine. Palpy, you have some ‘splaining to do!

Aww, he’s learnt his lesson. :)

Finally, Enter the Ninja, an information and propaganda website advancing the charitable causes of ninja everywhere… through merchandise sales! HOW THE MIGHTY STEALTHY HAVE FALLEN.

“If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed!”

Oh… Palpatine? …You’re still here? I… I guess you can stay for a while. :/

An Illustrated Guide to Things That Don’t Resemble Sweet Potatoes (A recurring crisis)

Posted by Morbidiculous on 25/07/2008

There. Now I have thoroughly explored two opposing sides to the issue of identifying sweet potatoes… EVERYTHING IS MORALLY RELATIVE WHEN YOU GET INVOLVED WITH VEGETABLES. :O

Links for a brighter yet somehow more jaded future:

Now there are those out there who would accuse Morbidiculous of exploring only stupid, trivial things (and these people are faceless and limitless in their evil, by the way), but I am CONFIDENT that this will silence them:

12 Cakes That Look Like Steak!

THERE’S NO TIME TO EVEN READ WHAT THAT LINK SAYS

If you are still here after seeing that link then there is clearly no hope for civilising you, I’ll just move on to the next link and wonder regretfully where your upbringing went terribly wrong! (it was a Thursday)

Popular culture makes tragic, disfiguring, medical conditions amusing once again! Popular culture, you deserve a medal. :O

The story of Hiroo Onoda, one man who just stubbornly refused to believe his country could lose a war. I don’t recall all of the seven virtues, but I’m pretty sure that stubborness is written on there somewhere! Keep looking for it until your opinion matches mine… you’ll know when! :)

Today, I… had a Pokeriffic adventure when I intended to be talking about Batman

Posted by Morbidiculous on 21/07/2008

Pokemon or no, that was the last ever adventure in the outside world AGAIN! From now on all of my adventures will take place sitting down. >:(

Thankfully the Pokemon lifestyle is very acheivable these days, with all of the advances in graphics and hardware of the new handheld DS system! Now there is no need for fresh air or sunlight or exercise to ever enter into the equation again.

Anyway, there have been more problems! For example! I was supposed to be talking about Kung Fu Panda and The Dark Knoght today (and that hilarious misplaced “o” will stay where it is) but instead you have to look at Pokemon… it’s a long and (say it with me) tedious story!

Thoughts on Batman: Great! If you only see one film this year, choose Batman, and forget to take any children you may have with you. It’ll break their hearts and provide them with a generous supply of hostility towards you for the rest of their lives. Batman is THAT good.

But! To disagree with the general popular consensus (and I am ALL ABOUT disagreeing with popular consensus) I think that Heath Ledger was probably the weakest part of the film. If only he wasn’t dead and an endless source of morbid comedy for talk show hosts, people might agree with me! Damn! But at the moment I just seem like a cruel, jealous monster who likes to kick him while he’s down (and by down, I am not attempting to make a joke about the depth of his grave. THAT WOULD BE TASTELESS AND SOMEBODY ELSE ALREADY MADE THAT JOKE TO ME TODAY)

So, back to adventures in 1998! Pokemon! How about it.

 

Oh. Now I remember why I stopped playing Pokemon!

Plus I sat on my gameboy and the colour stopped working. :(

Links? Well, just the one!

To sound like a fairly typical whining internet nerd in all of his glory, Red Vs Blue has truly jumped the shark with its latest series! But unless it is one of those deadly and ferocious land sharks, they should be okay. LAND SHARKS: THEY ARE THE MOST DEADLY SHARKS OF ALL. >:(

An Illustrated Guide to Things That Resemble Sweet Potatoes

Posted by Morbidiculous on 17/07/2008

Alright, that should clear up any confusion people have been having! :|

There have been further problems with the bwog today, so things will be kept to a minimum! In particular, do not visit the Hyrule On Life page, something has gone MORBIDICULOUSLY wrong with the coding there. Even Bomberman himself could not solve that problem!

Now I’m just being ridiculous. Bomberman can do anything. :)

Links?

Stiltman is a supervillain from Marvel Comics with a slightly less impressive resume of evil deeds than his peers, but he recently passed away in the Civil War… in the name of Morbidiculous, please donate a Pangolin and help feed his starving widow and orphans. :(

The Super Mario Marathon, the most successful of a wide variety of organisations dedicated to raising money for charity by the unlikely method of sitting around playing games for a long stretch of time, has just recently wrapped up AND raised over $11,000 for the Child’s Play Charity. Good going guys! I wouldn’t mind getting on the bandwagon myself. My game of choice? Kirby’s FRIGGIN’ Dreamland. My worthy cause? The resurrection of apartheid! ……DONATE NOW.

E3 Scandal: lack of updating leads to filler comic!

Posted by Morbidiculous on 16/07/2008

You may have remembered Morbidiculous promising a SPECIAL update this week… well, there have been some unforseen problems in that regard, mostly thanks to some HTML problems and general internet stupidity! (plus the “n” key on this laptop has picked up a defiant streak, probably from those rebellious numpad keys. They are ALWAYS CAUSING TROUBLE.)

So here is a filler comic that prepared earlier, about a former American President who has led the public to believe he is either dead or trapped inside an imposing statue of himself in stasis for over a century.

You will be left today only with the imposing bust of the great Emancipator (or as I like to think of him, the great Imposernator) reminding you to

Drive safely, and carry a big stick!!”

buuuuuuut I think he might just be confusing himself with Teddy Roosevelt. How do I tell him without hurting his feelings!? :/

A link to further Theodore Roosevelt quotations? Thank you, the wide and bewildering world of the internets! You have once again saved my relationship with a former world leader! Good day and good night.

News and links:

There is a photo caption on this news page that says “Amazing scenes of enormous Mass”, which was amusing for a few moments before the harsh, grim reality of life reasserted itself. :)

Anybody with any interest at all in gaming, like Morbidiculous certainly CLAIMS to have, knows that E3 is currently taking place. So to continue giving a feeble impression that we do, here is the latest coverage from Kotaku, Gamespot, N4G, and 1UP.

And thankfully, Games Radar is currently doing a special weekly feature on… the booth “babes” at the convention. Which is great, because I was just wondering if they could go one day without using the word “sexy” as a noun and making me feel ashamed and embarassed to ever label myself a gamer!

Um, whoops. Freudian slip! I meant to say IT’S GIRILLS LOL AM I IRATE RIGHT GUYS

A Comic Where A Zebra Provides An Allegory For Christ

Posted by Morbidiculous on 14/07/2008

If you are asking yourself “whoops, what implications does this have for my soul and I”, then I’m afraid you are ASKING THE WRONG GUY. >:I

Today’s featured game of spectacular antiquity: Nightmare Creatures!

Most people have never even heard of Nightmare Creatures, which I suppose is just as well… the average person probably doesn’t have the stomach for it. YOU WERE WARNED.

Nightmare Creatures was released in 1997 for the Playstation and PC (and later a few other systems), and with truly astonishing speed it plunged into… mediocrity, I guess! It kind of failed to make a huge impression on anybody at all, which is strange because it had a lot of the key qualities necessary for a successful game: rudimentary graphics, a variety of horrible monsters, TWO gender dysmorphically different protagonists, and a huge selection of weapons! (gaming expectations were a lot more relaxed in 1997 you see)

In the game, you played as either Ignatius or Nadia, and you had to stop the mad and/or insane schemes of Adam Crowley, the details of which I can’t actually recall with much clarity, but I do remember for years mistaking him for the actual historical figure, which I’m sure was the designer‘s intentions ALL ALONG.

There were new monsters introduced in every level, and huge boss monsters, and a werewolf, and at the end Crowley turned into a gargoyle and tried to throw you off a church, and it was all very very exciting! And then it faded into obscurity. :/ 

Oh well. It borrowed a lot of the horror elements from Resident Evil and the tomb raiding adventure gameplay (among other things) from Tomb Raider. But seriously, it was great.

Hacking zombies apart in Victorian London did NOT lose its appeal quickly, and I remember enjoying the trek through Nightmare Creatures a lot more than the similar nightmare related gameplay of either Resident Evil or Tomb Raider – I think it was due to the advanced decapitation engine present in the game. It was truly… AHEAD… of its time! :O 

QUESTION! WAS that pun the true reason I chose to look back on Nightmare Creatures?!

Sssh! That’s between me and Aleister Crowley! ;)

 

Today’s links:

Passage: an award winning free game I highly recommend. It’s very arthouse, so you should let that put you off!

Gamespy: Top Ten Gaming Bargains (from 2004! But most of them are still kind of relevant)

Salman Rushdie is STILL ALIVE. And the guy wins an award, too! Those are BOTH fine accomplishments!

I’ve spent this post talking about Nightmare Creatures, but it’s the photo of Rushdie on that piece of news reporting that chills me to the bone… it’s the finest day of his life and they can’t even provide a non bug eyed picture of him? I guess it’s still an incredible honour… if you can call that living. :(

And in a final piece of news, apparently
