Last week I was reading IGN’s Rage review, which received an 8.5 from Charles Onyett, when I noticed the comments at the bottom of the review. Many of the comments were harassing IGN for their score stating that it should have received a 9 yet they had not played it. Furthermore, many were also confused on whether they should buy it or not. Seriously? Underneath the 8.5 is the word “Great.” Why would you not want to play a game that is great? Sure, cost is certainly a factor with many more AAA titles still to be released, but the issue is deeper here; most people just look at the score and do not read the review.

This past week, Steve Jobs passed away. He is known as the godfather of Apple. He was the face of their product up until he stepped down amid his bouts with cancer. When that cancer took his life, he was hailed as a visionary. Many claimed he changed how we as consumers view computers and computer projects. Well, I think we should stop short before we deify him.

The Nerd’s Eye View crew reviews 50/50, and one of them just wasn’t impressed. Andrew and Matt go over the news in video games, including some Arkham City talk. Thom and Andrew delve into Community Fantasy League discussion. The CBYHS theme for the week is “Body Part/Anatomy in the title” and it sure is a head-scratcher. The three trailers for Trailer Trash are John Dies at the End (2012), The 3 R’s (Oct 20), and Being Elmo: A Puppeteers Journey (N/A). And at the end are three more entries for Guess the Ending.

This past weekend, I saw 50/50. For a full review, check out Thursday’s show, episode 30. However, to briefly state my opinion, this felt tailored to me. I love movies about characters, preferably in a comedic state. Being a fan of James L. Brooks’ earlier films, I can see a lot of the influence on director Jonathan Levine’s work. I won’t waste your time with the reasoning why Joseph Gordon-Levitt may be one of the greatest young actors currently working (does Brick or(500) Days of Summer not prove it?). I won’t waste your time discussing Levine’s other movie the Wackness (featuring the immortal line “I just look at the dopeness. But you, it’s like you just look at the wackness, ya know?”).
Thom watches Planet of the Apes(the real story is how) and continues with Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop. Andrew finds two things wrong with the title of Naked Lunch, wonders if Marge is a better lead to A Streetcar Named Desire and ponders what is happening in Revolver. Matt goes to Metropolis and finds it grand, gets Lost In Translation with Scarlett Johansson and meets some Strangers on a Train. In the news, Arrested Devlopment might be getting big and small screen treatments. Also, box office top ten, new releases and birthdays with a special birthday themed song parody by Thom.

By Matthew EspositoWell, not technology itself, but those who create it. Now I know what you are thinking, am I tremendously ill and thus not thinking coherently? Or maybe the mad scientist Rotawang has created a replica robot of myself and inserted that statement into my blog! Admittedly, a robot that could take my place at work while I do my best impersonation of Leisure Suit Larry would be amazing, yet in actuality it would be plagued by software errors that it would spoil my Larry Laffer adventures; which leads me to my blog.
