It's Thursday, I'm In Love!: Perth Comic Shops! Part Deux
Monday, June 15, 2009. So here I am in Perth again.six weeks short of having first come here two years ago! Of course, without it needing to be said, I absolutely had to check out the Perth comic shops, despite spending about half a day less here, compared to the last trip. I certainly remember a couple of comic shops from my last visi, both located along Hay Street in the Perth CBD: Comicszone. Comments from visitors after the original blog entry. Enough of that. By the time anyone reads this new bl...

Thursday, April 30, 2009. Review: X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Another comic book movie has been released on the big screen, so it’s time for another review! This time around, it’s the first of at least two planned prequels to the X-Men movie franchise: X-Men Origins: Wolverine. There was no doubting that Jackman was the star of X-Men the movie. Which is something considering the company he was in: Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan.but this unknown Aussie actor was THE breakout star of the ...The m...

Monday, July 13, 2009. Review: Pokemon Platinum for Nintendo DS. It's finally time for me to review a game that has already taken Japan and the US by storm, and more recently, Australia, since its release about a month to six weeks back: Pokemon Platinum! Now, before I get into the guts of the actual review itself, allow me to wax lyrical and take a trip down memory lane and share with everyone my Pokemon experience and journey thus far. So I didn't have much console gaming experience. Sure, I knew s...
It's Thursday, I'm In Love!: Review: World of Goo
Friday, May 15, 2009. Review: World of Goo. Just downloaded one of the simplest and yet immensely enjoyable games from the Nintendo WiiWare site this week: World of Goo. Let me just say that World of Goo is well worth the high price tag. There ARE some levels where the goo balls remain animate even after using them as structure "joints" though. In those levels you can just "break" a goo ball off your structure and reposition it. So in those sorts of levels, if your structure falls apart, just lik...The p...

Saturday, January 17, 2009. Review: Grand Theft Auto IV. It's about high time I write this review, since I've clocked up so many hours playing the game since just before Christmas! In fact, GTAIV is still the ONLY game I've played on my less-than-one-month-old Xbox360! I'm literally two missions away from completing the game, and I know I really SHOULD complete the game so I can move on to another game.but I don't WANT to complete the game because it is so much fun to play! The city is magnificent to exp...
It's Thursday, I'm In Love!: Old handheld LCD games: a distant memory of my youth
Friday, May 8, 2009. Old handheld LCD games: a distant memory of my youth. Went to the post office yesterday and I signed for a package that contained the following Nintendo DS game:. No, this wasn't another game I purchased. On the contrary, this was a game that was SENT to me, free of charge, by Nintendo Australia, because I redeemed the Club Nintendo points that I had accumulated from the purchase of games like Mario Kart Wii, Super Smash Bros, Wii Fit and the like! I certainly remember those LCD game...
It's Thursday, I'm In Love!: 03/01/2009 - 04/01/2009
Friday, March 27, 2009. I spent quite a bit of time trying to find the Easter eggs crammed into the Watchmen movie.heck, I try and do that for all the comic book movies I watched! While I got some of the more obvious ones like references to. Comic book that is an integral part of the graphic novel, the Village People appearing at the front of Studio 54, just behind Ozymandias, and the Comedian being responsible for Kennedy's assassination, there was quite a lot of stuff that I missed. From this point on,...
