  • What to Trust

    A topic that comes from Malone. When reading or learning a story, how does one decide what sources are trustworthy and which are not? How much bias is acceptable? Does size and history of the news organization instill trust? My strategy is to read several articles on the same topic from different sources so I have a better idea of all the angles.

  • NYPD Boycott Quentin Tarantino

    Tarantino had some choice words for the NYPD during an protest against police brutality. They are upset because an officer died in the line of duty close to the date of the protest. Instead of putting out a well crafted statement about how police put their lives in danger they decided to boycott Tarantino’s movie… Pretty childish and pathetic in my opinion, totally confirming the immaturity the police who are bad eggs exhibit when they go mad with power.

    Later, they threaten Tarantino with an accident.

  • Chess

    I reference this article drunkenly, about people trying to build the smallest chess program.

    But the more interesting question is will Chess ever be fully solved? Meaning will the computer be able to say based on the first move alone, what the outcome of the game will be if both players played perfectly?

  • Classic Xbox Games

    I have been buying classic xbox games on ebay! They are super affordable, and the games are very awesome. I have especially fallen in love with Fight Night, first Round 3 and now Round 4.

  • Space Hulk

    Noah doesn’t actually like this game Space Hulk. But he wanted me to put the link in here anyway.

  • Double Dare - 1/1

    I remember watch this show all the time on TV back in the day. Mark Summers was such a charismatic host! This game consists of mini games sprinkled between trivia sections. Everything was fun, this is a great multiplayer game that has aged very well. I wouldn’t even be opposed to busting this baby out as a drinking game at a party or something.

  • Double Dragon - 1/1

    What a classic. The only bad thing I can say about it is how horrible it is that it’s not truly cooperative. There is a 2-player option but you actually take turns playing, it’s a huge disappointment. Otherwise this is an excellent beat-em up experience and the first game in an epic series (on console). The control scheme is pretty stupid but you can learn to get over it. I have actually beaten this game in my childhood.

  • Double Dragon II - 1/1

    Here it is! The best beat-em up on NES hands down. The finally got the 2-player right, now you and your friend can take on the evil ninja world together. The controls are awesome (although it is quite difficult to execute the spin kick and power knee), the music is awesome, the gameplay is awesome. If you are a Nintendo fan, this is a MUST GET.

  • Double Dragon III - 1/1

    I never played much of this game in my childhood but I can’t say anything bad about it. It is, once again, 2-player coop with the same controls as the previous game. Some new moves have been added, and the game has a mechanic where you unlock new characters to be. The difficulty is much higher on this game than the previous two however.

  • Double Dribble - 0/1

    It reminds me of a much worse version of NBA Jam. Sometimes it’s hard to evaluate these games because my system is so very inconsistent. There is nothing “wrong” with this game, but I also didn’t think it was very fun… But I dislike most sports games no matter how good they are so that isn’t fair. Bottom line is, currently there is no reason to play this. Just play one of the many other better basketballs games.
