If I’m going to start doing comics (semi-) regularly around here, I’m gonna need to rework the site layout quite a lot. And frankly, I suck pretty hard at all that new-fangled page layout stuff. CSS! XLM! In my mind a Div is a drunken piece of obsolete home theatre technology, not a layout element. So… anyone out there know a bit o’ web layout stuff? I would like to work with you on making my layout not crappy! I am hiring with real tangible benefits. Money or artwork or something, I dunno.
Obligatory link crap:
This week’s Retronauts tackles the Mana series, with gorgeous musical interludes from Yoko Shimomura’s Legend of Mana soundtrack. Less gorgeous is my inexplicably punchy approach to hosting. Sorry, I’ll try to be less wacky and more boring next week. I’d hate for people to think I actually have a personality.
E3 is no longer a May event, but no one seems to have let the games industry in on that fact. Which is why this week and next are chock full of media events. I’ve been dragged into the nonsense, of course, and here are the results:
- MySims: The Wii game actually looks really good! The DS game… well, there’s still time for them to turn it around.
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: I think the details and captions in this one have outed me as a fan of the books. So much for pretense.
- Sonic Rush Adventure: Fortunately, much more of “Rush” than of “Adventure.” People seem very offended that I was under the impression that Blaze is a hedgehog, which is probably fair enough but does kind of confirm my wary sentiments about the Sonic fanbase.
- Ghost Squad: If a Tom Clancy military squad were trapped in Time Crisis 3, it would be Ghost Squad.
Finally, a freaking huge Mega Man 20th Anniversary feature went up today. It’s only the first part of four! Our good friend Nadia ably wrote the retrospective portion, while I put together a distressingly involved retro roundup of the entire series. It’s all really good, I think! And there are still three parts of equal size to go. Just please don’t watch the video. I am a horrible, terrible, no-good interviewer, especially when tag-teaming with someone else in a noisy, awkwardly arranged environment with someone who doesn’t speak the same language I do. YEAH.
