Evening Reading

After playing through Dead Space 2 this week in just a few meaty sittings, I'm beginning to wonder if being on-edge for extended periods contributes to any measurable health risks. Someone should do a study.

In other news, the Internets are abuzz with the a ton of details about Sony's "Next Generation Portable." Well, everything except for the price, that is. Looks like we may have to wait until E3 for standard price-points for both the NGP's hardware and software. That said, if the retailer-proposed pricing for Nintendo's 3DS and its software is an indication of where the cost of portable gaming is headed, the gap between the cost of gaming on traditional consoles or PCs and the cost of playing on hand-helds is becoming more and more negligible.

I've personally never been much for gaming on hand-helds, but I do find the future prospects pretty compelling, though potentially quite pricey. What do you think of the narrowing cost and technology gaps between "on the couch" and "on the go" gaming?

And here's some funny:

      While it is absolutely ridiculous, you have to love the creativity that went into it. Michael Bay could take a lesson in what makes sci-fi action movies awesome.

          If you can get past that there is wild, unrestricted imagination at work here. The action scenes in Transformers, for example, consist generally of nothing more than Robot 1 punches Robot 2. Explosion goes off. Repeat. This Indian version is mind-blowing...robots going into formation. Robots forming robots. Double middle finger!

      I find it absolutely ridiculous, way beyond the point of it being more of a comedy than anything else to me. Was that movie suppose to be taken seriously? Or is it an actual action-comedy?

      It's like watching an 80s action film except now CG and FX have become affrodable enough to take the stupidity to new heights.
