Rez Re-release?

There’s a rumor that’s passed around OPM magazine a couple of times and recently picked up by GMR (both 1up.com affiliated, hmmm) that Sega is considering re-releasing the psychedelic music game/shooter Rez, possibly as soon as November. This is good news for those of us who missed the game on what must have been a very limited initial release in the states; a used copy can rarely be found for less than fifty bucks. And all indications point toward the re-release at a price point of about twenty dollars. Nailing down hard info on this is maddeningly difficult, however.

Sadly, I don’t think Sega will be releasing the Trance Vibrator peripheral along with it, as reported in game girl advance: Sex in Games: Rez Vibrator back in 2002. This article is pretty harmless but might not be considered safe for work.

Hey, there’s one of these up for sale on eBay. There’s a thought for Valentine’s Day…

Again With the Hating!

The Coming Civil War is an article by “Dr. Albert Oxford, PhD”, about many things, but mainly the polarization of the US in these troubled times. Given that it is posted on pointlesswasteoftime.com, I doubt the veracity of Dr. Oxford’s citizenship, if not his actual existence; nonetheless, it tells the truth, as all great satire should.

Now I really should get to work.
