OH YEAH

So I get a call on the cell phone and it's 'Call 1'. I assumed it was the producer who had earlier today hired me as a PA. I pick up.

Me: Hello?
Caller: Hey is this Rob Pimentel?
Me: Yeah, speaking.
Caller: This is Gabe from Penny Arcade. It says here you're attending PAX this year correct?
Me: Yup (at this point I thought he was actually calling all the pre-registered people to double check).
Gabe: Well we were calling to see if you'd be interested in being an Omeganaught in this years Omegathon.
Me: (speechless)... really?!
Gabe: Yup that's why we're calling.

Took me less then a second to say hell yes. I'm one of the 20 picked for the 2006 Omegathon and I get an e-mail soon with details.

So I did a little more digging into the last two to see what I was in for.

PAX 04 was Diceland, Halo, Mario Kart: Double Dash, DDR, Doom and then Pong

PAX 05 was Dicelant - Mario Kart: Double Dash, Katamari Damacy, Karaoke Revolution, Quake, and Combat.

The prize was the complete NES video game library, being valued at least $10,099.99. The prize was locked in a large cage in the exhibition room and also included two Star Wars-themed Alienware gaming PCs, one of which would go to the winner and the other to the runner-up.

So this year? No one knows yet but i'm expecting
Diceland - Console - PC - Guitar Hero - PSP or Nintendo DS Game - ???
What would make the most awesome date?

Top suggestions so far
(Build forts out of furniture and blankets, and wage war with paper airplanes.)
(
Create photo evidence suggesting that you went on an adventure that didn't really happen)
(
Staging an elaborate fight that ends in a sword duel in church)

E3 Will Be Downsized, Not Cancelled

Contrary to reports across the web, E3 has not been cancelled. Next-Gen had hoped that they would blow the lid off of a hot story by revealing that the show had been cancelled, but some quick fact checking shows that they are simply incorrect.

HOLY JESUS!!!

"Senior industry sources have revealed to Next-Gen.Biz that the E3 industry event, in its present form, has been cancelled for next year and the foreseeable future."

GaijinSmash

This was a doctor skit, and out of a class of true performers, this version was played by two superstar boys. These kids are more entertaining than Japanese TV ever will be.

The skit started out with Boy 1 sitting at the front, wearing a white lab coat (borrowed from the math teacher, and no, I don't know why the math teachers wear lab coats) and glasses. Boy 2 walked down the desk rows, giving off a fake smile and whistling the theme to "Fuyu no Sonata/Winter Sonata." Suddenly, a third boy ran up and stabbed him (only hardcore Asian entertainment fans will understand that reference). Boy 2, in great pain, managed to, literally, crawl to the doctor.

Boy 1: Oh, Hi Yon-sama. What's wrong?
Boy 2: I have a pain here. (clutching his stomach)
Boy 1: When did it start?
Boy 2: (Taking a pained moment to think about it) Oh, about five minutes ago.
Boy 1: Ok. Open your mouth.
Boy 2: (very slowly and dramatically) ...Aa...aa...aa...aaahhh.
Boy 1: Ok. I think you've been stabbed. (How he figured this out from looking at his mouth, I'll never know.) Here, I'll give you some medicine.

Note that here, Boy 2 was supposed to say "Thank you," and leave. However, they decided to ad-lib the final part.

Boy 2: But... this medicine won't work! It can't fix stab!
Boy 1: Oh, yes, I see. Then I'm sorry. You will die.
(A very slow, very dramatic crying scene. Boy 2 then got up and started to leave.)
Boy 1: Wait!
Boy 2: (Turning around, with a hopeful look in his eyes, and clasping his hands together.) Yes?
Boy 1: That'll be 30,000 yen.

I guess HMO's suck no matter what country you're in.

Bored Angry Rant

Summary- I need to radically change my life cause it's starting to get to me.

The most satisfying thing is to create, and i don't do it. at all.

Rob, new plan.

I don't care what we make, quantity is better than quality when the alternative is nothing.
So lets get the trailer shot as soon as we can and just shoot whatever we can come up with that sounds half decent.
I already forgot what else i wanted to do.

Oh yeah, new plan, if we actually manage to start doing things instead of just saying it, meaning that i'll have something to fill the gap, then I'll quit by spring break or end of first semester or whatever signifigant gap comes first in the school year. Money aside, I'm just afraid i'll end up sitting in my house doing nothing instead of at least getting up to go to work. Place makes me sick anyway.

Sorry everyone, I've been so long without my own blog that my first serious post has to go here. Won't happen again.

P.S. - Someone get me the techno version of the pirates of the caribbean song from that blasphemous commercial. And the whole soundtrack.

Really, if any movie is "a cultural phenomenon" that you "must see" it's snakes on a plane. Not the movie that's unanimously agreed to be sub par.

An intriguing Red Steel multiplayer detail recently surfaced during GamePro's interview with Ubisoft creative director Nicolas Eypert. When asked about the game's multiplayer, Eypert had this to say: "[You'll] have up to four players. If they play together in split screens we can only say that the fight will not be only on screen."

Ballad of Serenity

We’ve received word that the new Serenity miniseries from Dark Horse will be titled Better Days and will be set during the Firefly TV series. Why? Well, for starters, all of the characters were still around at that point in the time. It’s also said to explore some plotlines that weren’t used in the original series. As expected, Joss Whedon will be co-writing this one with Brett Matthews, his collaborator on the first Serenity mini. No word yet on the artist, but Adam Hughes is rumored to be doing the covers.

Why nobody should ever headbutt John......
