The American Dream: Thoughts on Kim Kardashian: Hollywood and The Room: The Game

Ugly people have been making games for years and taking all the credit. Thankfully, that has come to an end with the arrival of Kim Kardashian (and her ample bum) on the gaming scene. This post comes by way of Maya, and reflects on the bizarre parallels between Kim Kardashian: Hollywood on iOS, and the Newgrounds’ flash game The Room: The Game.  Continue reading

Russell Brand and the anti-videogame proletariat agenda (aka Jonathan Ross and videogames)

Everyone’s banging on about Russell Brand and his revolution. Crypto-fascist-communist-socialist-leftist-conservatist-sexist-racist-totalitarianist scum that he is, or whatever, according to Google the man is of no relevance to videogames. Therefore he shall not be mentioned again until he sees sense and replaces Satoru Iwata as Nintendo of Japan’s CEO. Now that’s how you go about changing political systems. Despite Brand’s uselessness, his accomplice in the Sachs phone scandal, Jonathan Woss, is of some import as these adverts and videogame cameos show. 

IBM, was it weally necessary to so cwuely include the word wange??

After a long career on television, Woss’s career finally peaked with this.

As the only “celebrity” actually trying in this advert his delivery deserves some credit, despite how saccharine and cringe-worthy the advert is more generally. It’s not acting either on Ross’s part, the bloke is definitely passionate about games. 

He has a limited wange though, let’s be honest. “Let’s go give baby his bottle” with his delivery sounds literal, credible, real – you can imagine this space marine leaning back to attend to his thirsty child in the back seat. It certainly doesn’t sound like the bad-ass testosterone-fulled war cry you know it’s supposed to be.

And as a final bonus he’s got one or two more lines recorded here. Skip to 4:15.

Perhaps at some point I’ll return to discuss Woss in Fable 3 (3 is definitely Woss’s magic number), and his recent iOS game, Catcha Catcha Aliens, but until then that’s enough Woss love. He’s just a comedian after all, never mind that he loves Parodius, and anyway as we know all comedians are exactly the same and of no relevance to anyone.
