I know you know everybody everyone let's go


I don't tend to talk about video games much here because this is not a gaming comic. But if all you non-gamers would bear with me for a moment, I would really like to talk about Beyond Good and Evil.


These days, games are trying to be more and more like movies, and generally, they have been successful -- successful in the sense that they, like most movies today, suck. But Beyond Good and Evil is different. The story is intelligent and masterfully executed. The characters are well developed and brought to life through excellent voice acting and animation. And the art direction is outstanding -- Michael Ancel has crafted an world of visual splendor with breathtaking environments and over fifty different species of original wildlife. Quite frankly, if this game had been a movie instead of a game, it would be one of the best films of the year. That Beyond Good and Evil is actually interactive, and that those interactive elements are as enjoyable and varried as they are, is nothing short of mind-boggling.


It's hard for me to convey everything that I loved about this game in a paragraph. But, I'm giving it a shot anyway. Why? Because the game is selling like crap. Maybe there just isn't room in the market for a completely original game that isn't based on an existing franchise, or a game that stars a female character who doesn't have boobs the size of her head. But whatever the reason, Ubisoft has dropped the price to $20 US in retaliation. Now, if you have a PS2, Xbox, Gamecube or gaming PC, you really have no reason not to play this game. So just check out the official website. Trust me! When have I ever steered you wrong?

Snowblind


It barely ever snows in my hometown, but it did this weekend and it is still cold and icy out there. I'm not used to this kind of weather, and let me tell you, at this point I have no desire for that to change. Brr!


I've added one picture each to the gallery and fanart gallery. The gallery pic is the photo of the Fuzzy Jackolantern that I posted on Halloween, but the fanart is something you haven't seen before, and now is the time to remedy that!

A box with something in it


I have updated the gallery! There is a metric ton of new stuff in there, both from myself and from the Sam and Fuzzy readers. So check it out.


It's a new year, and several cartoonists have recently posted their top ten (or twenty) favourite CDs of the year. This is something I would really like to do myself, but because I am rambling and defensive, I couldn't do it without writing a ten page editorial discussing each album's merits. So, my list is on hold until I have time for that. You should probably hope that I never do.


Believe it or not, today's strip launches a series that will be running all of next week. I don't know what got into me.
