The Guild
After watching Dr. Horrible, I decided to look up more about Felicia Day and her show, The Guild which I've been meaning to watch for a while. Note that the latest episodes are published on MSN/Zune/XBox Live before anywhere else.

I was pleasantly surprised and found The Guild highly entertaining. In this story of a group of on-line gamer geeks, the awkward situations and humor can be appreciated by all. However, those who are not familiar with fantasy worlds or MMORPGs may not get some of the references or jokes (even I had to look up a couple terms). Even so, I definitely recommend this web series to anyone who's a self proclaimed geek or anyone who would like to know a little bit more about the geek world.

American Dodgeball Association of America
Saturday a bunch of people went to Yone's birthday at the Windy City Fieldhouse and played dodgeball. We had pretty good participation with up to 14 people on the field at a time.

There wasone time where I decided to run and dive for a ball and roll out of the way of any incoming balls. It didn't work and I was hit mid roll, which makes me think that in all those gun fights you see, running and rolling or diving for cover is a pretty bad idea. But I guess it looks good on film...

Anyway, I'm totally sore from sprinting for balls and throwing a lot... the worst is probably my quads because everytime I stand up or take the stairs I can feel it, but part of my back is sore too... Ah, the signs of age...

Grand Theft Auto saves lives?
Violent video games CAN save lives and proof is right in Streator a mere one hour drive from Chicago.
Many disparage the value of video games and their effect on today's youths.

Karen Norris, of Streator [IL], will say no such thing. Not after her quick-witted 11-year-old daughter, Audrey Plique, sprung to the rescue of their family because a popular video game showed a potential danger of a vehicle rollover.

"She just knew, from playing 'Grand Theft Auto.' She saw on there that when a car rolls over, it can blow up. She knew that could happen to us," Norris said.

Good to be a Geek
Lots of interesting geek news came out this week.

AA debuts in-flight WiFi access. It kind of makes you wonder why WiFi and cell phones are banned on other flights. Just remember that the ban actually originated from the FCC to reduce cellular network clogging and was then adopted by the FAA which expanded the ban to other broadcasting devices.

Sony announced the PSP 3000 with several minor enhancements. The most significant is probably the built-in microphone. While it doesn't appear that Sony wants to turn the PSP into a phone, the primary use of the mic will indeed be to support Skype and other VoIP services using it's WiFi capabilities.

Lastly, in light of all the iPhone issues, the first "gPhone" utilizing Google's Android operating system has been announced. T-Mobile will take pre-orders for the HTC Dream with Android (aka G1) in September with the phone to be delivered in October. Upgrade prices for existing customers (such as myself) and data plans sound pretty reasonable.

XBox vs PS3
As I watched Microsoft's press conference at E3 on Monday my resolve to get a PlayStation 3 began to waver. Announcements of a price drop for the 20GB XBox 360 and accompanying promotions such as the $25 gift card from Target, were the first straws. The announcement of NBC and Universal partnerships followed by a surprise partnership with Netflix further sweetened the deal. But the final announcement, tacked on the very end of the press conference, was that Final Fantasy XIII would be released on the 360 at the same time as the PS3. That has pushed me to finally consider switching to the Microsoft route.

Blu-Ray won't be sufficient reason to justify a PS3, especially since Sony officially stated they won't be cutting their prices anytime this year. The few exclusive games that Sony has aren't enough to sway me considering the huge number of great games on XBox. Sony will need to have some pretty awesome news today if they want to earn my loyalty...
