Man it was a chore to get this page to load tonight. Nothing wanted to cooperate.

Anyway, I had this crazy dream last night. It was basically the end of the Harry Potter books, but it took place in an American style high school. Also, American Harry saved a lot more people and it was more like an action movie than the books. On the whole interesting to experience, but it didn’t ring as true as the end of the real books. It was pretty crazy being right there in the action though. I was always more or less behind Harry’s right shoulder. Like a video game camera that has a fixed point most of the time. It would zoom in from time to time but I was always on his right for whatever reason. It was a better experience than some of my dreams at any rate.

I’m hearing rumors that Nintendo Power is finally ending. Looks like there’s some typical back door BS going on, but the real question is am I going to get dicked over with my remaining subscription. That was always the worst thing about magazines ceasing publication. the companies in charge pretty much take your money and run, and apparently that’s legal. Or at least there are ways to get away with it. Pisses me off. The fact of the matter is that all gaming magazines have been fucked since their content is so hampered by print, plus when they do try to go online they ALWAYS fuck it up. It’s pretty hard to sell information when you can get it for free ANYWHERE. The trick is to present that information in a way that’s palatable to the modern reader. Which is why the people who come to the net without the thinking of a print publisher do much better. Not that any source in particular presents information in a way that I like, but that’s just the way of things. I’ve made peace with Kotaku, but for the most part I hear about stuff on accident now, or from direct emails from companies I like. Which is just not as much fun as Seanbaby’s The Rest Of The Crap…

Also, i know that Seanbaby wrote for EGM, I’m just using it as an example. Nintendo hasn’t has a staffer worth remembering in… over a decade.
