The Half-Life and Death of Gordon Frohman

Webcomics. There are a lot of them. But one has always stood out to me because of its comic quality and obvious attention to detail. Concerned: The Half-Life and Death of Gordon Frohman, is a webcomic about one certain character in the world of Half-Life 2 who doesn't quite fit in. Half-Life 2 is a computer game for those who don't know. And for those who don't know, know this. It is known to millions of people as the best computer game. Ever. Including myself. But that's not what this is about, this is about Gordon Frohman, an unfortuante soul who is stuck in this video game world, pointing out all the inside jokes, problems, and general mishaps within it. You can check it out at HLComic.com, but I would recommend starting from the beginning. Fair warning, there is a small bit of language in a few of the comics, but nothing really R-Rated. Enjoy the comic!


We Now Return You to Your Regular Broadcasting Schedule

Ok, I lied. The internet magically fixed itself. I'll be putting some new games up today at Onblog Games, and there will be a few updates to this blog as well. I have been bored out of my mind today, especially with no internet. The terror has passed though, and now I can start worksurfing again! Begin!


Pardon the Interruption

Ok, I am finally back at the computer...or a computer at least. The internet is down where I work, so it might still be a day or two before anything really happens on the site, but don't worry, I am still bored, and having no internet just makes it that much worse.


A Touching Home Depot Story

Charlie was fixing a door and found that he needed a new hinge, so he sent his wife Mary to Home Depot.

At Home Depot, Mary saw a beautiful bathroom faucet while she was waiting for Walt, (the manager) to finish waiting on a customer. When Walt was finished, Mary asked, "How much for that faucet?"

Walt replied, "That's pewter and it costs $300."

"My goodness that sure is a lot," Mary exclaimed.

Then she proceeded to describe the hinge that Charlie had sent her to buy, and Walt went to the back room to find it. From the back room Walt yelled, "Mary, you wanna screw for that hinge?"

Mary replied, "No, but I will for the faucet."

This is why you can't send a woman to Home Depot.


Somethings just cannot be bought...

One day a 12-year old boy was walking down the street when
a car pulled up beside him, and the window was wound down.

"I'll give you a bag of lollies if you get in the car"
said the male driver.

"No way, get stuffed" replied the boy.
How about a bag of lollies and £10?" asked the driver.

"I said no way" replied the irritated youngster.

"What about a bag of lollies and FIFTY QUID, eh?" quizzed
the driver, still rolling slowly to keep up with the walking boy.
"No, I'm not getting in the fricken car!" answered the

"OK, I know what you want. I'll give you £100 and a bag of
lollies" the driver offered.

"NO" screamed the boy.
"What will it take to get you into the car?" asked the
driver with a long sigh.

The boy replied "Listen Dad, you bought the Skoda, you
live with it."


My Mate's Accident

I woke up after a big night to go to the toilet to just find a pair of soiled pants lying on top of the toilet of the big student house...placed like a Van Gogh painting, it looked like the sunflower one.

Being a bit worse for wear, me and Ray got a hockey stick and were dangling them over his face when he was sleeping, plopping them on his head and then cracking up...we then hooked them around the back of his bed by his face and went out the room.

When he woke he looked sooo sheepish, we then told him that we heard screams from a girl in his bedroom in the night and she left...we didn't know who she was, he pulled her on the way home, saying something about you getting all shit freaky on her or something...

He looked so bad and didn't go out for 4 months afterwards! We didn't feel bad because he was a bit boring when out anyway :D


Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)

I am pumped. Snakes on a Plane comes out in just one week, and I am almost assuredly going to see it. The title of the post is the theme song for the aforementioned flick, and I have been listening to it all day. I would highly recommend this movie for two reasons. One, Samuel L. Jackson is going to be in it. Two, the movie is going to be hilariously stupid. The story goes that Samuel read only the title, and immediatly signed on for the lead role. They tried to change the title and he threated to quit.


Guild Wars Nightfall - Officially Announced

Ah, gaming news, it's been a while. Well, a game I have known about for about two months has finally been officially announced, and I am pumped. Guild Wars has been a part of my life (off and on) since February 2008. That might not seem like a very long time, but that was only halfway through the open beta, which makes me an alumni, at least. Guild Wars: Nightfall will include two new professions, and the super-special PvP extravaganza will be held from July 28th to July 30th.


It's A DS August!

There are a-many games I am excited about for the DS, and almost all of them are coming out in August!

Here is a quick hit list and a small description, for any DS owners out there:

Mario Hoops 3-on-3: Mario Basketball. And guess who's making it. Nope, not Atlus. Not Ubisoft. Not Nintendo? If you guessed Square Enix, you're crazy! But you are also right. Squenix is developing a Mario Basketball game; these are the guys who made the multimillion dollar Final Fantasy saga, and the quality of their previous work should show in this game, no matter how much of a not-an-RPG it is. Plus, you can play as a Moogle. I am buying this game.

Star Fox Command: Star Fox was one of my favorite games ever. Now it is coming to the DS. The last few renditions of Fox have, well, sucked, but this is going back to its roots with original always-in-the-air gameplay. Here's hoping for Andross!

Final Fantasy III: Squenix is on a role. Square made this game way back when, and it is being revived in 3D for my dual-screened Nintendo. There are very few RPGs for the portable, and this will probably really spark things off. RPGs FTW!

Deep Labyrinth: Morrowind on a handheld. Nuff Said.

So here are my recommendations for the DS that will probably keep you busy the rest of the year. Have fun!
