Joystiq gets some hands-on time with Metroid: Other M.Joystiq gets some hands-on time with Metroid: Other M.

Nintendo has announced that the sequel will be available on June 27th and is a direct sequel to Super Metroid from the Super Nintendo days. The action is blend of side-scrolling 2D and some first-person shooter 3D. I'm sold, sign me up. More screenshots available on Joystiq.

Next Final Fantasy game might have DLC content after all?Next Final Fantasy game might have DLC content after all?

Turns out that downloadable content might be available for the next installment of the beloved RPG franchise. Want more proof? It even says so right there on the back of the box.

Telltale might be porting all of their games over to the Mac in the near future.Telltale might be porting all of their games over to the Mac in the near future.

This is great news for Mac users if this turns out to be true. It's a little annoying to switch over to my Windows partition just to enjoy these games. There are also rumors that we may see Telltale on the iPad as well.

Final Fantasy VII remake still not happening anytime soon.Final Fantasy VII remake still not happening anytime soon.

This information comes direct from director and game designer Tetsuya Nomura. Sorry fans, at least you'll always have Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberrus, and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. Oh, and don't forget the numerous action figures as well.

Daily Grind: Cloudy

Name: Vin (aka dayquil daytripper)
How Vin feels today: Cloudy @ 2:39:23 PM
What Vin really wants today: To shake off yet another strain of this cold/flu business prior to my upcoming (and much-needed) vacation.

Music Stuck in Head: Only a Dream / Phish
I'm very curious as to why they decided to leave this off the new album and stick it on the bonus disc (which most people still haven't received). This tune is better than most of the songs on 'Joy'.

Stuff to do today:

  • Clean up GeekLikeMe footer and paging (scroll to the bottom of the site)
  • Test new code additions in multiple browsers, particularly Internet Explorer
  • ...of which I highly reccomend this tool to all of my fellow web nerds: IETester
  • Cross that item off the list
  • Fix rupture in space time continuum for crossing off crossed off item on daily grind to do list
  • Wish a certain member of the Michnay family a happy birthday
  • Apologize for lack of a daily grind post in what... two weeks?
  • Get back on track next week now that server mess is all cleaned up

Twenty-five clever costume ideas for Halloween.Twenty-five clever costume ideas for Halloween.

For me, the Beaker costume is a personal favorite (meep meep). Although the 'Dinosaur with Prisoner' comes in at a close second. Wow. Bonus link: Beaker's momentous performance of Ode to Joy.

The coolest NES controller flash drive you'll see today.The coolest NES controller flash drive you'll see today.

Why is this the coolest flash drive you'll see today you ask? Because it requires the Konami code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start) to unlock it. Yes, I'll take six please.
