How good is he?

It's official

Actually, there are a few things that are official.

It's official that I will be receiving the books, all 66 boxes of them (at 35lbs each) on Tuesday at some point. That's right, I said Tuesday. It would be Monday, but it's a holiday. This means that the first books will start shipping at the end of next week.

It's official that Interplay has been shut down by California state officials for being a fuck up. Our chances of any new Fallout material are getting very slim.

It's official that Sam and Fuzzy is good stuff.

It's official that I've got a whole lot of work to do, so that's all the newspost you get for now.

Bloody hell

This is what happens. I wake up, and have like sixty bajillion emails in my mailbox about Interplay shutting down. I look at the article, and sure enough it says Interplay was shut down. Apparently not one of all of those people bothered to look at the date that article was posted, and it's my fault for not looking myself. It appears the article is a month old.

This followup was apparently posted a few days later.

You know what? I don't give a shit about Interplay anymore. It seems like every other week I'm on a fucking rollercoaster with them. "They might declare bankruptcy" then "oh wait, they're gonna try a Fallout MMO to pull out of the nose dive" then "nope, they were shut down by the state" then "ha! they're open again!".

Fuck it. Seriously. I love Fallout as much as the next guy, but Interplay can suck my ass, and Herve Caen can be at the front of the line. I just don't care anymore.

If another Fallout title hits the shelves, I'll post about it. Until that happens, I'm not getting my hopes up anymore.

I just thought I'd let you know that I'm a fucking idiot.

Regardless of the huge pile of work I have in front of me, I picked up the Spiderman 2 game this morning. I told myself I had to get to work, but I'd just play for ten minutes.

So now I'm sitting here working, and I'm all twitchy and shit, with urges to just drop everything and go cruising through the skyline of New York, web by web. Fuck.

The game is really nifty. The cutscenes were pretty weak, but everything else I've experienced so far is outstanding. Definitely worth a rent, but only if you don't have the money to buy it.

Today's comic is reciprocation for the Applegeeks comic that Hawk and Ananth did a couple of days ago. Go here if you missed it.

I'm heading out to see Spiderman 2 with Hawk and Ananth this afternoon. That is... if I can drag myself away from the Spiderman 2 video game...
