So that Battleship movie starring Liam Neeson is out today, in case you decided that paying to see The Avengers a sixth time seems excessive. Spoiler alert: it isn’t. The trailers for Battleship looked completely fucking shitty, and I definitely won’t be seeing it. What really pisses me off is that I know I could make a way better movie loosely based on the classic Milton Bradley board game. Here’s my pitch:
You know you fucking love it.
You only live once. Do it up like a complete fucking badass.
SydLexia.com forum member Not Sure, who made waves on the internet earlier this year with his 600 point game of Super Mario Bros., recently completed a no damage run of Mega Man 2. On Difficult, of course. You should totally watch it, as it is quite impressive. Not Sure was the winner of the 2008 SydLexia.com NES Championship, the 2009 SydLexia.com SNES Championship, and the the 2009 SydLexia.com NES Championship. He could have easily won more events, but he has abstained from further competition on the basis that he’s way too fucking good at 2D games. And believe me, he absolutely is way too fucking good at 2D games. See for yourself.
WordPress has been upgraded to take advantage of all the new bells and whistles in the latest version. My job at this point is to make sure that it all looks the same as it always did.

SydLexia.com turns 6 years old today. Happy birthday, website! With a little luck and a lot of caffeine, there will be a major content update posted to help celebrate this exciting anniversary before the end of the week.
In honor of Halloween, Steve and Jeff over at 8bitrocket.com held a contest where the prize was a copy of the Wii version of the 2010 remake of Atari’s classic 1981 game Haunted House. The contest rules were simple: name another classic Atari game you’d like to see remade. My suggestion, a remake of the unfinished Swordquest series as a single, won. I should note that 8bitrocket is no way affiliated with Atari, so don’t expect to see the game come to fruition. That being said, you should still definitely visit 8bitrocket.com. They design flash games and flash game engines, specializing in retro arcade style action. They have also written a book on how to code and design your own flash games.
So McDonald’s debuted a new line of Halloween pails this year. Just like last time they brought the pails back, they don’t have lids, which is completely weak. And this time, they have a Mr. Potato Head theme. The gimmick is that each pail has a few blank Potato Heads printed on it and comes with a set of stickers that you can place on them to design your own Halloween Potato Head. That’s cool, right? WRONG. You know what would have been cool? Halloween-themed Potato Head Kids. Great fucking work, McDonald’s. I hope whoever came up with this dumb idea dies, if they haven’t already.
