THIS IS DIREMAN PRESS!
Today's strip isn't really the 300th strip, as Vargas and I have been forced to slap up a handful of fillers, but it is technically the 300th posting. The Direman Press Humor Conduit Junction thanks you for your support, and asks you to note that the site relaunch is a few scant weeks away. Tell all your fellow carbon-based meatbag associates.
I'm still playing Call of Duty 4, and leveling like a madman. Mostly, I'm trying to get my online kill/death ratio above 1.50. As soon as I accomplish that arbitrary goal, I'll let you guys know my thoughts on Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, and Super Mario Galaxy. Galaxy is superb, and is the one non-FPS in contention for Direman Press Game of the Year.
The candidates thus far are: BioShock, Orange Box, Call of Duty 4, and Super Mario Galaxy. The only reason Orange Box is among them is Portal. I'm pretty sure my buddy Mike (who hasn't played Portal) will excoriate me for yet another "the cake is a lie" punchline, but this little three hour gem is one of the best gaming experiences I've had in years. It's been an astounding year for games, as I'm not even considering quality titles like Halo 3 and Mass Effect. Even the PlayStation 3 has "should play" winners in Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted!
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and for those of you who enjoy my hard hitting unbiased game reviews, there'll be plenty when the new site goes live to assist your holiday consumer purchasing.
