Under the knife

The Evil that is Resident

It's Friday. I'm going to go all over the board today.

I think I'm getting close to finishing Resident Evil 4. I'm at very least halfway through. I'm determined to beat this game, which saying a lot for me, because of the hundreds of video games that I own, I can say I've beaten maybe a dozen or two of them. It's just how things work. I get really into a game, but then something new comes out. I never finished Doom 3. I never finished Half-Life 2. I never finished the first Prince of Persia.

And what happens is that I put these games down and leave them for long enough, that when I decide to go back and finish them, I've totally forgotten where I was and what was going on with the story, so I have to go back and start over. But not Resident Evil 4. I will beat this game.

I finished reading Marvel 1602 the other night, a collection which I had gotten for Christmas. I was blown away. It truly was a work of art, the story, the incredible visuals and style, all of it. And it had a super cool concept. It was really awesome seeing all of the classic Marvel heroes transferred into Elizabethan era 1602. I highly reccomend reading it if you're a comic lover.

Now I've started reading the entire collection of Bone, which I am finding wonderfully amusing at times. This collection is massive. I myself have created nearly 500 comics at this point in time, but I still can't imagine having put out this much work. I could kill someone with this monster. Easily. 1300 pages. Holy crap.

Sky Captain comes out on DVD next Tuesday, which I'm pretty excited about. I missed the movie in theaters, but I've heard a lot of good things, so I'll definitely be picking this up first thing on the 25th.

As I've mentioned, it's sort of a slow period in the gaming industry right now. After the crazy 4th quarter we had in 2004, there just aren't very many huge titles coming out right now. The new Splinter Cell will probably grab me for a little while, at least, of which there is a demo out on FilePlanet, if you were interested.

This just in

Just got this from the store, regarding some of the Winter-een-mas shirts:

It has been brough to our attention that some people who ordered Winter-een-mas t-shirts and used the "Expedited US Parcel" shipping method have not received their t-shirt yet. The current delay is much longer than it should be and unfortunatly, it's also something we at ZeStuff have no control on.

Customers who have not received their order yet are asked to call Canada Post at 416-979-8822 between 8 am and 6 pm EST. Make sure you get your order's tracking number off our "Your Account" section prior to calling them. We hope that having many people calling them will force them to figure out what's wrong with their service and ensure the fastest delivery possible of your Winter-een-mas items.

ZeStuff has been listening to your suggestions and complaints and we are currently working with another company that will soon take over our express shipping. We apologize for the problem some of you are having with Canadapost services and rest assured that we are doing all we can to find alternatives to their service as fast as possible.

If you have any other question, feel free to contact us at support@zestuff.com and someone will get in touch with you shortly.

Thank you very much,

Pierre-Luc Brunet
Co-Owner of ZeStuff

I would like to stress that I do not do any shipping, so PLEASE stop emailing me if you haven't received your shirts. I'm very sorry to hear that you haven't received them, but there is NOTHING I can do about it.
