Things I've read:

Not only is [the Asus Radeon HD 4850] a cornucopia of graphical goodness, with roughly twice the memory bandwidth and shader power of the Radeon HD 4670, but it has an historically implausible archer chick surrounded by rose petals on it. Just looking at it, I feel calm and secure, though slightly aroused.

Wii Music is the closest video game ever to become ‘art’.  (his emphasis)

Things I've missed:

  • The San Francisco Valkyria Chronicles event.  There aren't too many games that I truly dork out over.  Valkyria Chronicles (or Senjou no Valkyria, if you insist) is one of those games.  Easily the best Sega game in years and probably my favorite of this current generation of games.  I briefly considered shirking responsibilities today so that I could go to this pre-release event and... oh, I don't know.  Meet the producer?  Grab some swag?  Hang out with some girl friends who happened to be at nearby Yaoicon?  Since I couldn't, I guess I'll just read Dom's take on the entire thing while I send sad emoticons his way...
  • Juno Reactor.  They were in Los Angeles over the last two days, conducting a meet and greet and giving a concert... and I had no idea.  Apparently they were second billing on this tour, ceding the top spot to this dude Sugizo.  (Sugizo is most known for his exploits in the J-rock band Luna Sea, which I know little about except for the fact that their name is an anagram for the phrase anal use...)  I know I shouldn't have gone a month without hitting Anime Jungle.  Man.  Juno Reactor.  Man.
Note to self: stop missing things...!
