    E for All (all those that have nothing better to spend their money on)

    E for All was a new convention whose mission is to provide gamers with a sneak playable peak to games that will be coming out this holiday season. The stats say that 18,000 people came through the E for All doors through out the weekend. That may be true but they did not go for all four days of E for All. I attended the convention on Saturday and Sunday since I could not get off of work to attend when it started Thursday. Video Games Live was a very successful part of E for All. The concert was held in the brand new Nokia Pavilion. It was incredibly successful and everyone who went said they had fun. VGL takes a lot of work from so many people that it’s great to see this caliber of an event tied to E for All. THQ, EA, Intel, Namco, Konami, and Major

    Order pizza for your next party via text message

    At most parties, there is always that moment when everyone looks at each other and it is agreed upon that food is needed. Yet, nobody wants to call the pizza place and order. Papa John’s is making it so easy, people might actually offer to order pizza. Maybe… 2,700 restaurants now accept text messages. First you will have to log onto PapaJohns.com to create an account. They can save up to four favorite orders, along with a delivery address and payment preference. Customers can punch in “FAV1,” “FAV2,” “FAV3,” or “FAV4,” to text message orders. Papa John’s sends a reply with the order, and the customer can confirm or change it. Sounds easy. So you can probably look online at Papa Johns to see if you are near one of the participating stores.

    Zap zits away faster than ever before

    Gadgets are meant to make life easier and help us do things faster. What better use of technology then to make one that takes away something we all hate? Zits. I always held the belief that you grew out of zits when you became an adult. It turns out that is not true. Zits also have the worst timing in the world. I meet tons of people at Gaming conventions and at every one there it is, the familiar zit. Which of course makes me look like a teenager instead of a professional adult. So what do I look to for help? Tyrell’s Zeno product of course. The Zeno is a small device that fits in your hand. It also easily fits in your purse for on the go treatments. The tip heats up and then you press it against the blemish. The heat destroys the bacteria, which allows the

    Rant: Why must journalists continue to enforce gender stereotypes

    I saw Enochan did a rant today and I really did not want to do a rant also because it’s friday and between this week and next week it’s probably the best time to be a gamer right now. So I should be relaxed and be a happy gamer. But articles like the one in Reuters today, just infuriate me. As it gets closer to the holidays, we start to see articles in popular news venues about what children want this year. The holidays are big time money and every year there seems to be one must have item. The first research poll I have seen this year is from a company named, BIGresearch. They polled 7,982 U.S. consumers for what kids wanted this christmas. The writers by-line is thism “Barbie rules girls’ wish-lists but boys go high-tech”. The research did show that Barbie was on top of the list.

    RANT: Bad “Parent’s Guide to Chistmas Video Game” Articles

    Warning: RANT As I was reading my local paper today I found a very interesting section within the Arts and Entertainment section. It was a column that was dedicated to Video Games, mainly in the shape of reviews. I was kind of tickled pink that the paper has decided to let someone write about video games and publish it for the entire world to see. I also assumed that they were getting paid. So of course I had stop and actually read the section. This particular article was actually geared towards parents, and what are the hot games to be getting their children this holiday season. I began to read the actual list and I became a little disturbed. The list is as follows: Rock Band: T COD4: M (17+) Kane and Lynch: RP ( I’m going to guess it will get a T or M17 rating once it is

    Mass Effect Collctor’s Edition comes to Canada…Eh?

    Unknown to the happy people that live south of the boarder in the grand USA, your great friends in the north have been denied the collectors edition of Mass Effect. Not only were we not getting the collectors edition, we weren’t even going to get the Bonus disk. While other countries were either getting just the CE, or the bonus disk (Europe and Australia respectfully) Let’s ignore the fact that Bioware is a homegrown Canadian company from the heart of our Big oil Province (Alberta), let’s have it so that the Collectors edition is only is the US and Europe. This ticked off a few Canadian, or made them weep with jealousy. I know my own boyfriend took off his pre-order of the game because of the unavailability of the CE. But no longer. The Collectors Edition has been spotted on sites such as bestbuy.ca and futureshop.ca ready to pre-order
