- Zero Punctuation. I'm a fan of Yahtzee's
animated video reviews. Just don't expect him to be a fan of your Wii games.
- Metacritic. A mixture of experts approach to video game reviews.
- CSSU Games Night. Every year the computer science students
association hosts a video game night that lasts all night and is lots of fun. Hopefully it'll still be running by the
time you read this :)
- Video Games Live. Video game music, performed with a live
symphony orchestra. When you want to attend the symphony and actually know what the songs are.
- Pictures from my classes. Long-awaited, much
anticipated, somewhat overrated, seldom imitated.
- Online Comics (aka MWF time-wasters):
- XKCD. Great strip for us geeks.
If you want to further prove your geekiness to your non-technie
friends, there's no better way than a comic strip from XKCD.
- PHD Comics. For all
you grad students and grad student wannabes out there.
- Penny Arcade. Good for gaming
jokes, and for rants about video games and life in general.
- Sinfest. Used to be one of my fave
comic strips, but got a little political for me after a while.
- Something Positive. My new
online comic favorite. Lots of really good lines in this one.
- Wikipedia. The modern-day Oracle of
Delphi. If you don't know what the Oracle of Delphi is, you can even
look it up.
- Toronto Gas Prices. Because in
this day and age, we need all the help we can get.
- Google Maps. Mapquest? Puh-lease, that is
so last year. Besides, does Mapquest offer a satellite view?
- The Catfish
Recipe Page. Great recipes of my favorite fish.
- The Onion. My source for illegitimate
- Happy Tree
Friends. I don't even know why I put this here. This is just sick.
