myke's eye view: a look at life from the perspective of a cynic > Final Fantasy XIII Review (IMPORT)

Posted 29 January 2010

11556 In just about 5 weeks, the latest installment of the venerated Final Fantasy franchise makes its way to the US for PS3 and 360. The hype preceding it is typical of any of the titles in the main Final Fantasy canon (well, except perhaps for XI); however, the amount of uncertainty and doubt about this title appears to be unprecedented for a game in t...


myke's eye view: a look at life from the perspective of a cynic > Delicious Library is Delicious.

1) I'm a graduate student. I was informed today that my dissertation committee wants to schedule a defense (oral presentation followed by intellectually raking me over the coals with brutal questions) of my research. So, in 4 weeks, I'll have completed all the requirements for my Ph.D. Fuckin' awesome! No more revising a 200+ page document, waiting fo...


myke's eye view: a look at life from the perspective of a cynic > HD Channels That Can Kiss My Ass

Posted 13 January 2009

I speak, of course, of the "480 signal with stupid bars and a logo" HD channels.

I was super stoked that Time Warner added CNNHD a few weeks ago. But as I turned it on, I noticed that the programs are the same resolution and aspect ratio as the regular ol' CNN channel. But they had big ol' bars on the side that said "HD" (a la ESPN).

Whatta joke. May...
