Because, really, vigilantes and villains wouldn’t be doing what they do if they didn’t have some kind of anger issues.

Steampunk Peanuts

Posted: 14th August 2012 by affehaus in comics, cultural, design, games, I made

The renowned fighter pilot Snoopy has the honor of being Squadron Leader of the Daisy Hill Irregulars, a group of attack dirigibles. Their daring bomb runs are the things of legend, flying into heavily fortified areas and destroying targets where no other squadron was able to penetrate. On more than one occasion, Snoopy has led […]

Smaller, By One

So… by now, every one knows of the Charlie Sheen-shaming career flame-out of Paul Christoforo. But I can’t help throwing my body on the dog-pile… two cents in.     So… for those lacking context (and too lazy to read the full thread), this is the reference: From: Mike Krahulik To: Ocean Marketing I am […]

W.O.W: Now With More God Mode

Posted: 21st November 2011 by affehaus in cultural, games, geek stuff

I do like to drive fast, and auto racing does look like it would be tremendous fun; some day, I’d really like to try it, even if it’s only at a racing school. But the idea of sitting down and watching someone else drive around in circles makes my brain numb I think Yahtzee sums […]

No Escape

Posted: 24th August 2011 by affehaus in games, geek stuff, movies

Fan-film of the Portal(esque) universe. It takes a little while to gain momentum… but once it does, it rolls with a pretty good head of steam.  And the production values are unbelievable.  What was their budget!? I’m thinking this was a ‘pitch’ film; whoever made this is trying to parlay their efforts into a feature-length […]

Lucious: game where you play as devil spawn.  That, in itself, is interesting.  But the goal of the game is to eliminate all of the tenants in the house, using your demonic gifts.  Now that’s a concept I can embrace. Lucius is the son of the devil who has to clear the mansion of it’s […]
