E32K3: The Stage Of History
I have a lot to talk about, but my eye is still bugging me and I wan’t nothing more than to hold a physician recommended cold compress over it. We do, however, have a new strip which might do with some background.
Fighting Gabriel’s Talim in Soul Calibur 2 is about the most emasculating excperience I have ever had in a videogame. He savages you, but somehow his character is able to remain adorable throughout the procedure. It would appear that other human beings had an opportunity to experience what was until now my own private hell, because Gabe is going into the finals tomorrow to infuriate a whole new set of unfortunates. The prize really is a Soul Edge, so you can probably understand why so much depends upon these battles.
Anyhow, if you’re down there, he’ll be doing battle at 11:00 am in the Namco booth - he’s entered in the PS2 tournament. I think I’ve seen the Soul Edge they’re giving away, it’s hanging in another part of their booth. It’s got the big eye and everything. Maybe Porkfry can go and try to poke the fucker out or something, that’s kind of this thing.
Also, just by way of a reminder, we will be hanging out from twelve to two or so in Kentia Hall, we’ll be there near the entrance somewhere in the vicinity of the cafeteria there. We are harmless and will not bite you.
My eye feels like it is full of sand.
