Drinking Games: The “I Can’t Drive 55” Edition Tuesday, February 5, 2008

Posted by PQ Crash in PQ Crash, video games.

Hello all, this is PQ Crash again covering two of the finer things in life: Booze and video-games. I knew I wanted to review Burnout: Paradise this week, but I couldn’t pin down what alcohol would go well with it. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of asking the lady at the liquor store what booze went well with driving. After being asked to leave I headed over to another liquor store and on the way there I had a bit of a serendipitous moment…Sammy Hagar’s “I Can’t Drive 55” came on the radio and I then knew what I was drinking that night: Hagar’s own Cabo Wabo tequila.

Let’s make Vince Neil proud after the jump… (more…)

Hello all, this is PQ Crash and the fine folks at DeadOn have allowed me to partake in their reindeer blogging games. Unfortunately, the writer’s strike has taken its toll on everyone here, and sad to say, myself included. However, when I’m bored beyond creation, I’ve always taken solace in two things: booze and video-games. So, on a bi-weekly basis, I’ll be concurrently reviewing one game and one alcohol for DeadOn. Sometimes the two go hand-in-hand, sometimes one wins out over the other. Which provides more mind-numbing relief? Let’s find out.

This week: Assassin’s Creed vs. Jack Daniels

Your air guitar is now obsolete as Guitar Hero III will be released October the 29th. Every week leading up I will take you on a preview of the magical songs that will be in this game. In fact you can call the article weekly.

This week. Dragonforce, Slayer, and… Heart?


This Week In Rock: Stopgap Edition Monday, March 12, 2007

Posted by Greek McPapadopoulos in 3 simple chords, Guitar Hero!, proto-butt rock.

Yargh, it’s never fun to be in the midst of Finals, and it’s even less fun when you have multiple computer failures. I am sailing smoothly right now, but am writing two papers currently, so I’m keeping the Monday edition short, and if my exalted DeadOn overlords allow it, I’ll post a complete wrapup on Wednesday. Just think of the happiness you’ll feel on Hump Day!

Well, I just wanted to post this bit of sad news here anyway. Brad Delp, the lead singer of 70’s rock heroes Boston, was found dead in his New Hampshire home over the weekend. No foul play is suspected at this time, so that’s good. Now I want everybody to blast out “More Than a Feeling” from their nearest stereo and hold aloft ye lighters, then go home tonight and bust out your copy of Guitar Hero and play along in tribute.

How to Talk in the 21st Century – Idioms Saturday, March 3, 2007

Posted by athleticsupporter in athleticsupporter, the balls, video games.

Probably more than anybody else, we here at DeadOn believe in the power of pop culture. When I recently came across a couple of phrases I had never heard over at Idioms – How to talk in the 21st Century, I thought I should share them with the DeadOn readers due to their strong ties to video games that we all know and love.

I’m going to bang the bricks

The idiom used for I’m going to go withdraw money from the ATM. I don’t know why, but I’ve never liked telling people I had to get cash out of the bank. I like references to Super Mario Brothers much better.

The blocks didn’t fall right

The idiom, referencing Tetris, is used for when something in life just doesn’t turn out the way you wanted it to. If your like me, just hearing the word “Tetris” makes you start playing a game of it in your head.

Do you have any idioms such as this that are pop-culture related? or just plain awesome? Tell us more in the comments…

Blow Me: A Weekly Look at Cartridges Collecting Dust Friday, March 2, 2007

Posted by racistmascot_inc in Blow Me, I don't get out much, racistmascot_inc, video games.

Every week (If I feel like it), your friendly bitter neighborhood mockery of racial heritage will shine a dim spotlight on a game that’s been hiding at the bottom of closets everywhere like a battered spouse. This week, we explore Naju, a place that time forgot (but nerds remembered)

I knew as soon as I committed to writing for this little nebula of smarm that I was going to be contributing a weekly column about forgotten games from the past; I never had any doubt that I had enough criminally underplayed games to fill three years worth of articles. The reason why I didn’t get this hammered out right away was because of the incredibly tasking choice I needed to make, namely, what game should be my first date, the shining example of a game that never got the attention it deserved. Would it be the thumb-twitching manic frenzy-fest that is Radiant Silvergun? What about the beautiful, engrossing adventure epic The Longest Journey? Could I possibly give this honor to a game with little US exposure, like Ranger-X? HELL 2 DA NAW!

Guardian Legend

This was a position that could only be occupied by my absolute favorite NES game ever, a game with some exposure, yes, but a game that was so ludicrously underplayed that to this day it makes me weep. I’m talking of none other than the Compile/IREM epic, The Guardian Legend. Never heard it? Well I hope your brain is ready to get its ass kicked, because The Guardian Legend is that damn good. Even at this very moment, as your tender eyes glance over the innocuous blurbs of text, tiny beams of awesome are invading your mind and kicking the shit out of your synapses. I’m talking a beatdown the likes of which we haven’t seen since Ricky Manning Jr. accidently walked into a LAN Party. Why is The Guardian Legend (hereafter referred to as TGL) so damn cool? Read on after the bump, if your puny, unprepared consciousness can HANDLE it, bub. (more…)
