Life Should Be A Platinum Trophy

December 30, 2010 | | 11 Comments

Greetings, loyal FooBear408 minions. It’s time once again to curl up around the proverbial campfire and listen to FooBear spin another yarn…but not just any yarn. Far from it – true believers – this yarn has quality fiber and has been sheared from the finest of sheep. The kind of yarn you’d be proud to weave into a real ugly holiday sweater or possibly some really well fitted gloves. You know? The ones with the individual finger thingies? I got to be honest, I don’t even know what in the blue hell that even means…”to spin a yarn”. I’m not even sure where I was going with the yarn thing and I’m even more positive that the payoff was pretty weak. So here’s the deal: I’m going to go ahead and start fresh on another paragraph.

As far back as I can remember, I’ve always had an affinity for video games. Being able to escape into an alternate reality and be someone else, even it’s just for a little bit. It’s also nice to make sure the right side of my brain is still fully functional. Even if half my brain power is devoted fully to finding the out the real reason why my PSN friend “Dvs-1” has the ability to hide inside a bush and possess the jaw-dropping ninja skills to dump bullets on people and go 38-1 in the latest chapter of explosions and war: Call Of Duty: Black Ops. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off, screaming at my teammates because nobody has spy plane and the same dude keeps sneaking up behind me and slicing me like some sort of vindictive deli clerk. And of course, I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s why we play and love video games, right? The different frustrating gameplay variables, the visual aspects and ultimately – to be challenged enough to care to keep playing the game you just coughed up some serious clams for.

Review: Sly Cooper Trilogy

December 30, 2010 | | 12 Comments

Before Sucker Punch moved on to create one of the most electrifying protagonists of our generation the studio was well known for a cell-shaded raccoon thief for the PlayStation 2. Five years after the last game was released, Sly Cooper returns on the PlayStation 3 in high definition with Trophy and PlayStation Move support ( for specific mini-games only ). For those like myself who have never had the oppurtunity to play a Sly game during the PS2 era here’s an in depth review of each game that makes up the Sly Cooper Trilogy.

My Little Black 80GB Friend and Me

December 29, 2010 | | 17 Comments

My name is FooBear408. What is a foobear you may ask?

A foobear is cross between a pug dog (sometimes referred to as a “foo” dog) and the bear part being a horribly overweight guy who likes to refer to himself in the third person. The 408 ending is just an area code reference…so chew on that, it’s delicious. 

Now that we have that out of the way, let me get directly to the point, fearless reader. The reason why we even come to this blog. The reason we huddle together in dark basements and even darker living rooms. It’s the reason I sit on my couch during most weekends and hiss like a vampire when my girlfriend opens the curtains or turns on a light. That little black technological wonder – the Playstation 3.

Recently over the holiday weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of my girlfriends’ parents stay with us. Her stepdad enjoys watching gameplay on my super awesome tv, usually commenting on the graphics and how smooth everything looks. It was then time to open presents on Christmas morning and low and behold I received the new Logitech 960 wireless headset as well as other mind exploding gifts. So as you can imagine I was eager to set up these ear goggles and rushed with baited breath and begin the daunting task of setting this headset up with my little black friend.
