Megan Fox, the Foxy Gamer!

I'll admit, I'm not that huge of a Megan Fox fan. Yes, she's a babe, but the looks can only go so far. If she were a more talented actress, then I guess would feel otherwise, but she's not (at least not yet). However, assuming the following article is true and not fabricated by sweaty palmed geeks, then her street cred is going up in my books.

In an interview with What They Play (credit Kotaku), Fox talks about her gaming life past and present. It's not the generic celebrity answer of "I play Super Mario", or "I love Tetris", or even the more generic "I play solitaire". No, she speaks more truthfully about her geek life. Her first game was Disney's Aladdin for the SNES. But the game she's loved the most and still plays nowadays, is Mortal Kombat (and it's various incarnations). She says that right now she's playing through Mortal Kombat VS DC, and she even goes further to say that she hates playing as Superman, because his combos "were so weird".

What a babe eh? It's too bad that I don't like Mortal Kombat... but I'd kick her ass at Street Fighter IV... in my dreams.

If you want to read the original articles you can find them here (What They Play / Kotaku).

Anyhow, I leave you with this gif that someone posted on the F4W board. Later geeks.

Is it just me or does she look like a hybrid of J.Lo and Catherine Zeta-Jones?

It was quite a week last week. It started off on a more heavy note last Sunday, but as the week wore on, things became better and more clear. So let's do a little recap. This is going to be kind of long, so if you find this kind of stuff boring I've inserted pictures of funny cats for your entertainment. So... 1.5 Weeks Ago About 1.5 weeks ago, my friend Jon from Living Room gave me the contact info for his uncle. His uncle is an engineer and apparently was looking for new grads and new hands to hire. That week, I gave him a few calls but he wasn't there when I called him and when he returned my calls, I wasn't here either. We were playing phone tag that week *insert schoolgirl giggle*. Sunday Morning So last Sunday morning, his uncle gave me a call at 9 am (The morning! My weakness! HISS!) and we talked about stuff. I was telling him a bit about school as well as elaborating my work/coop experience as he didn't have my resume yet. So he goes on to tell

George Clooney is UP IN THE AIR!!!

So this is the last in the three movies that I was looking forward to at the end of 2009 (the other two being Bad Lieutenant and Avatar). It's hard to say which movies I enjoyed more because they're all so different, but I can confidently say that I enjoyed all three. Also of the three, this movie is the most realistic when it's all said and done. Up In The Air tells a story about Ryan Bingham, who flies all over America firing people. Laying people off is such a tough thing to do that companies that need to do so hire people like Ryan. It becomes reflective as Ryan sees his own life of isolation at odds compared to the lives of those around him. It's apt that he has such a hollow and thankless job which parallels his own life. Because he's on the road for 250+ days of the year, his own life is quite hollow; with no stable relationships, weakened family ties and no friendships in sight. In fact the first time we see his apartment, I was kind of shocked. Up

Finally, the Xbox 360!!

So as I mentioned in a previous post, I received an Xbox 360 for Christmas from my dad. A great present it was! I've had 3 weeks to enjoy it so I guess I can give you my impressions of it now. First the controller. In truth, I haven't felt a controller this comfortable in my gaming life before. As a child who grew up on the 8-bit generation, with just a directional pad and 2 buttons, there was quite a learning curve getting used to using two analog sticks at the same time. You might say, "Hey Lam, how bout the PS2? You have that machine, and that has analog sticks". True, but of the twenty or so games I have for that, all of them used either only 1 analog stick, or allowed the option to switch on to the directional pad. Using 2 sticks at the same time was at first just uncomfortable. This made for all sorts of trouble as I was playing Gears of War . Luckily for me, I had computer controlled teammates that watched my back. I love the Media Center capabiliti
