Another Surprise up our sleeves

Alright, well we launched www.theculturedgamers.com, and we launched it in a big way with our super smash bros. brawl contest. (get in on the action while you still can, you have until march 5th.)

We have another Surprise coming all your way. You’ll find out what it is come this saturday. It’s pretty huge, and I hope you are all pleased with it.

See you all Saturday.



A sudden rise in popularity.

It’s odd, I was expecting my daily diary type of blog would actually drive people away from here… but oddly enough, I’ve doubled if not tripled my daily traffic.

I want to thank all the readers I suppose, and again I want to invite everyone to come on over to the forum, and just chat and fucking enjoy yourselves.

Also, we just got a .com, so the forum address is now www.theculturedgamers.com

We have that super smash bros brawl contest 2 happening, so please, join in on that action? what’s the worst that can happen by joining up and entering the contest?ssb2



The more Mature System

We keep hearing how the 360 and the PS3 are the more mature systems of this generation. Let me tell you why I think that’s a false statement.

The majority of gamers who play the 2 aforementioned systems are consisted of a majority of teens (Don’t believe me, turn on xbox live for example… anybody else sick of hearing pre-pubescent kids say “Pwned”) So why is there such a teenage following of the consoles?

Well, like in all mediums, blood, guns and shooting people are all the cliched symbolism of “cool” So of course when your that age, you are going to try and fit in with what’s “cool”.

A sheep kind of mentality, no originality what so ever. Does that sound like a very mature reasoning to like the consoles? nope.

The other argument often heard is “well the graphics are gorgeous.” Extremely shallow and near sided perspective to say the least. Is a mature person honestly that shallow? I don’t really think so.

Last argument: Having to dismiss the other console as being “kiddy”. So just because your not comfortable enough with yourself within society, you have to join the popular kids, and all make fun of the same thing. Again not very mature.

I think the most mature system is the wii, simply because of all the facts aforementioned.

I woke up at about 9:30, went downstairs, took a piss, and then scavenged for food. Not finding anything I came back upstairs, came online, and worked on putting up my new forum. I did that for abit, then started feeling rowdy, so I then proceeded to tug one out.

2 hours later, I came up with a satisfying skin for the forum, and now was in a dire need of food, so I cracked open a box of Kraft Dinner, started making it. While I’m making it, I’m talking to Jess and Steph who are now in the living room.

We bullshit for a bit, and Jess makes me tell Steph about my shirt, and why I got a shirt that says “The Dogfather.” I say it’s not very funny, but I’m harrased into telling it. So I give in.

Basically, I’ve wanted a Godfather shirt for the longest of times, as it is 1 of my favorite movies. I walked into a store 1 day, and I saw this shirt… thinking it was a Godfather shirt, because I was too busy to notice the writing, I grabbed it off the shelf, ran to the clerk with it, literally threw the money at her. I told her to keep the change, and ran out of there proudly with my brand new Godfather shirt.

A couple of days later, I’m with some friends, and 1 of them says “why are you wearing a dogfather shirt.” and I responded “are you crazy? this is a godfather shirt bitch, respect it.” and we got in a 30 minute argument about the shirt… until I give in, and decide to look down at it.. I then realize he has been correct the whole time.

See not that funny, but I had to tell it, so I did.

Post food, I come back upstairs to my room, and have a choice to check out “A Scanner Darkly” or “Good Will Hunting” I opt for the former. I’m relatively surprised by this flick, and how it’s an independent feature, and were still able to get so many brand name actors. They must of worked for scale and love of the project.

Post Scanner I come back online, check out the forum, email back and forth with Kevin (RMC from gonintendo.com) about possibly putting something up on his site about my board. He’s talking about full blown post, I was just talking about a link on the side, but who am I to complain about a post? he asks for a press release, so I write 1 up.

At around this time, Heidi gets home, and we start talking. She’s telling me how much she’s missing me, and how 2 days too long, I reassure her that the wait is worth it. As I’m talking to her, I decide to pop in “Good Will Hunting”.

Good Will Hunting also surprised me, it deserved the oscar it won.

Anyways, at some point I get rowdy again, and happen to get heidi rowdy as well… well thats all I gotta say about.

I then spend the rest of the evening working on the forum with heidi, and she was able to fix up our affiliate page. (Heidi is really amazing with all things photoshop and webmaking, she’s got this amazing talent, and my forum would look like shit without her.)

All the while waiting for Kevin to email me back… Heidi then goes to bed at around 11:30 (because I make her.) Then steph comes and asks me if I want to play smash. I, of course, agree, and we start playing. we play until almost 1, and I have a far lead over any of them (78 kills for me, 2nd place is 34.) Post smash, I head upstairs, read some “My Boring Ass Life” Tug one out, put in Curb Your Enthusiasm, then fall asleep.

Now a couple of things about this site. The brawl date is incorrect, it was from june, before the date was ever known. The official brawl date is March 9th 2008.
