DAICON IV: SPECIAL EDITION

Tue, 03/28/2006 — Brooke

Alright. We all know very well that this is a videogame specific website and in no way plan on turning the old battleship into Ecchi-Attack 2: Electric Boogaloo, as fun as that might be. However, the matter at hand is so vitally important to every reader – nay, to mankind itself – I would be grossly mistreating each and every one of you if I didn’t let you know of this vitally urgent mission straight off the bat.

NINJA EDIT: DOWNLOAD DAICON NOW. YOU HAVE NO MORE EXCUSES.

GAMES AS ART (ON THE SIDE OF VANS): STORMLORD

Fri, 08/19/2005 — Rev. Ragu

As we approach the fifth generation of video games, we've reached the point where the public at large is beginning to ponder the idea of whether games are art or mere entertainment, much the same way as they did about the same amount of time after the motion picture was introduced. It is a controversial issue, with hack politicians pointing to Grand Theft Auto and shrieking THEY ARE JUST MURDER SIMULATIONS BAN THEM ALL THERE IS NO ART, and us doofuses, with our ranting blogs predicated on the lingering bitterness over SEGA TOTALLY MISHANDLING THE SATURN, taking the side of GAMES ARE ART COMPARABLE TO MUSIC AND PAINTING AND FILM. Well, in this series of Andore JR. posts, I plan to set the record straight once and for all: Games are art. Like heavy metal album covers, velvet unicorn paintings, and of course, murals on the side of vans, games are art.

I present the first exhibit: THE STORMLORD

STRATA TEACHES ARTISTIC APPRECIATION

The first question I ask myself when something doesn't seem to be beautiful is why do I think it's not beautiful. And very shortly you discover that there is no reason.

Sonic Team Image Song #1: Angels With Burning Hearts

Thu, 08/05/2004 — Bloiffy

Sega's Sonic Team are reknowned for their games with lightning-fast, intuitive gameplay. Or at least they used to be before they started churning out shite. Billy Hatcher and the Giant Fucking Pile Of Crap? Sonic And Tails and Knuckles and Rouge and Eggman's Tedious Fucking Crap Adventure 2: The Search for Mad Dog's Gold? No thanks. Well, at least their vocal songs have been of the same continuous quality ever since they started adding these pieces of poetic art to their games, as indexed here for all time. Enjoy!!

Burning Rangers - Angels With Burning Hearts

Glow of past we deliver to the future-land
For the growing world of tomorrow we strive
Passing through the matrix of data
Driving you into the cyber dive

Even when you are lost in darkness
You must believe in tomorrow, it will come
Just like angels with burning hearts
We'll face the risk of lives

Sight of night I cheer to embrace the magic
Visions displayed on the monitors
Can you see the moon and the stars and the sun?
Could they be in our imagination?

Sight of night I cheer to embrace the magic
Starting an adventure for our future
We are all hoping for
Setting out to lead us to new the universe

Burning Rangers! To the brand new sky we dive
