Static: The Family BBQ

Illustration for article titled Static: The Family BBQem/em

Man… Sid Shuman… Sid Shuman… The folks are in town, I gotta spent as much time as I can with them, but I took this writing challenge. Today was father’s Day, my parent’s wedding anniversary, and BBQ day so now it’s 10PM and I got nothing. Well until now that is. Time to dust off the ol’ static, and no, it has nothing to do with the superhero.


I loved Gamepro magazine as a kid. You think this static thing was my idea? Nope. It was a column in Gamepro magazine where the author would write one long ass paragraph containing one or two lines about different topics. I am gonna modify it a bit, and do one paragraph per topic. I figured it gave him the opportunity to say stuff he wanted to say unrelated to video games. That and he could say stuff he wanted to say but didn’t have enough material for a full article. I’m assuming that last one. I salute you Vicious Sid!

If Lionhead Studios were still around, I’d say that the time is ripe for a new “The Movies” game. Why didn’t that game catch on? I guess none of the Machinimas people made ever got any huge recognition. But it’s time for a comeback. With the popularity of things like twitch and youtube these days, it’s a shoe-in. I know I’d use it. GOG, you gotta step up and do the right thing here.


Do I have to grow the mustache myself? I was so disappointed with Battlefield one. I never played the game, but I know they had a mode where you had to release a carrier pigeon and the enemy will try to shoot it down. All they have to do was dress all the players in purple coats and make them have a thin, sharp mustache. The game even has planes for crying out loud. They can leave the laughing dog out. I don’t even know if anyone is even getting this reference.

The world cup is on. And I have not been paying attention. The team of the country I live in didn’t even qualify this year. So I don’t have to worry about people being all pissed when they lose… again.


Which body part are you most attracted to? Kidneys right? A nice pair of kidneys on a girl? That’s what I would be looking for if I was a big drinker. But I don’t drink at all. Wait, was it kidney or liver? It’s moments like these where I would do some fact checking. But screw it, I gotta wrap this up. 60 days indeed. Oh and by the way, a supermarket that’s lost power can get pretty eerie, as I found out today. I wonder if anyone was using the darkness to stuff their face full of candy. CD Projekt Red… CD Projekt Red… CD Poj...
