Gaming Links

  • 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.

Amusements

  • 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 online information.
  • Happy Tree Friends. I don't even know why I put this here. This is just sick.
