Video game "enthusiasts" all across the Internet are in quite the tizzy right now over the prospect of getting a brand new video game console to waste their time with. In case you missed all the E3 announcements, here's a quick summary of the next generation video game consoles:
Microsoft Xbox 360 - It's like the original Xbox except it's not as big and it doesn't come with a hard drive and it has better graphics and it costs more money.
Sony Playstation 3 - It's the sequel to the Playstation 2 and the graphics are better and it's easier to yell at kids online with it I guess. And it costs more money.
Nintendo Revolution - It has good graphics and there will probably be a game with Mario on it and you can play "Kabuki Quantum Fighter" for NES on it supposedly.
To tell you the truth, I don't know that much about consoles. I don't even own any of the current generation ones. So I thought I'd turn the discussion over to an expert: A Nerd in His Shoe. He will tell you what console is the best because he's a goddamn nerd in his shoe!!
Watch Nerdshoe: Console Wars 2. It's a flash movie, so that means it makes horrible noises.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
Cons: causes bad nightmares. I used to have to eat beef until I passed out to have these kind of terrors, but this machine does it for me every time I fall asleep inside it.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
