Howdy, folks! It’s your old pal, Alcoholic Luigi. I’ve decided to take time out of my busy schedule tell you about my favorite Pokémon. The rules for this column are as follows: I don’t battle competitively, so any training advice I give you is based on “shit I like to make Paolo do while I’m getting laid.”
I have two kinds of articles that I like to write for GeekParty. One is where I do nothing but geek out about video game related things that make me happy. The other is where I try to leech off of other, more popular video game personalities. This article is both. See, these are the 5 gaming personalities I want to share a meal with, along with what meal that would be. [Read more...]
Ghostbusters for the PS2 is the best twenty dollars I have ever spent. Harold Ramis died yesterday. These two things aren’t really related, except that Ramis’ death made me decide I should write about Ghostbusters.
I’m gonna be honest with you folks. Despite my current trend of hatred towards them, I’ve been a huge fan of Penny Arcade in the past. Even now, I respect their opinion on video games, to the point where if I hear they’ve suggested a game, I know that it will be good even if it’s not my type of game. This was how I wound up getting La Pucelle Tactics and thinking bats really enjoyed peach tea.
GeekParty’s new Senior Editor thinks she’s slick. See, she has some idea she can order me around, in spite of the pecking order, and has given me an assignment. Which is why I’m currently writing GeekParty’s first “list”. However, the woman was foolish enough to leave the choice of lists up to me. So, without further ado, I present to you the Top Five Video Game Characters You Want As Neighbors! [Read more...]

If you’ve never heard of The Dex, you are obviously a horrible, soulless automaton for whom the fiery pits of hell await. Unless, of course, you can appreciate the inherent cuteness of my awesome Furret charm!
FEAR MY MIGHTY FURRET CHARM!
Fail is such a strong word, especially for a game that’s brought me so much enjoyment. Double especially for a game that’s brought GeekParty so much content. Yet, after writing my last article, I’ve begun to realize that “fail” is the only word I can use.
I’ve written before about how Star Trek Online could be made better, and I stand by that article. At the time I wrote it, however, I still saw STO as “flawed, but fun”. After spending many hours with Bloodlines, I began to notice all the ways in which it did the things I only wished STO would do.
You may recall me saying that Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines was everything I wanted in a video game. You also may not, I do say a lot of really bizarre things (in my defense, the Xormians are usually to blame). Well, GeekParty needs more content, and I don’t feel like fulfilling my already stated obligations, so instead I’m going to explain why I love Bloodlines so much.
Remember how I’m doing that thing where I’m playing all the PS2 games I own from the start, because I lost my memory card? Yeah, I’d almost forgotten, too. Luckily for you, only “almost.”
After putting aside WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011, I figured I should get back to the genre that made me love video games in the first place. A genre that could tell me a story, give me characters that developed over time, and dropped upon me a ton of idiotic menu choices I would never use.
