Seems Matt wandered in on one of those crazy pod casts over at S-words.

Been rather occupied of late, but in my down time I have managed to play some Demon's Souls. Now yeah, the NA version isn't out till October, but I'll be picking that version up too, if only to support Atlus bringing this kind of game over. I'm quite enjoying the game, despite many a curse slipping from my lips in it's name.

The asynchronous multiplayer is fantastic. You can leave little, refrigerator, jumble style memo's for other players in the world giving them hints or advice. You can also see the blood stains of the players who've fallen before you. Clicking these stains show you that player's final moments. Combine these two features and you have some really interesting results.

Hmm... That player's blood stain just showed him fall over dead for no reason in the middle of that bridge. Weird. Hey, a note! "It's safe here." huh? The hell does tha-

Where the multiplayer fails, is in the er... synchronous multiplayer. That is to say, co-op. When you die in this game, you revert to a weak ghost form. In order to join some one else, you must be a ghost. In order to invite some one else, you must be alive. To be alive, you must use an item, or kill a non-respawning boss demon or, help another player defeat a boss. However, due to game mechanics, you should kill yourself as soon as you get your body back at the game's hub so as not to screw up your stats. (Don't ask). So this leaves me wondering...

Who's left alive to start a party?

Yeah, I'm not yet content with how the site looks yet. These rant boxes aren't quite up to par. (Black on white isn't exactly eye friendly in digital form.) I think we'll be switching format completely with the site at some point. So don't expect the dust to settle just yet.

Unrelated, this sound track has been keeping me company at work these days. Afro Samurai, while kind words are rarely said of your game, the music was beyond a success.

Dom and Jes stepped up to do a comic while Matt and I are occupied with our own situations. Perhaps when these two powers unite, they form the perfect storm?

But yeah... Dom palms my cats' crotches... I think he's just trying to prove dominance in the house.

...I'm happy to say it looks like you don't get another doodle today. The comic wasn't complicated or anything, I've just been a little exhausted lately.

But anyway, yeah, this poor guy that was at our table suddenly started spouting blood from his nose at A-Cen. I, as shown above in the comic, have my theories as to why that was. Also, last weekend we were down in San Jose for Fanime. Got another convention coming up at the end of July. Connecticon!

I had a great time, but damn, am I glad to sleep in my own bed again.
