I was a little disappointed with my 1 Vs. 100 gaming session this evening. Tonight was “Community” night, and while I thought the Sci-Fi and Fantasy rounds were fun, the Community Video Game section sucked.

The round should have been called “FPS Games That Have Come Out In The Last 2 Years”, as the questions were utterly devoid of any diversity. Seriously, is this the mindset of today’s moden (read: younger) gamer? Sure, I don’t expect every newbie to the scene to know who Mr. Do is, but the people who accept questions need to find a common ground of young vs. old, instead of a question about doing said acting will net you said achievement in Modern Warfare. It’s not “hardcore”. It’s “limited in scope”.

With Christmas coming up, and an impending move, I scramble to find time for gaming where I can these days, hence the silence of late. The most exciting gaming nod is from the PSP, with the Digital Comics service having gone live. There’s a fair amount of free comics on there, but I’m a bit disappointed in Marvel for charging $1.99 per comic instead of the .99 cents like the majority of the other publishers. I love my old-school Amazing Spider-Man, but the price is a bit much.

If I don’t get a chance to say it later, I’d like to wish all of my readers a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, or whatever you and yours celebrate this time of year. I’m grateful for the feedback, and look forward to updating my “End of Year” in the next few days.

Until then!

– Guy
