Saint Patrick is the most famous of the patron saints of Ireland. Little is known about the dude but most agree he was born in Roman Britan around the fourth century. His folks were rich but it didn't end up panning out for him because he was kidnapped and sold into slavery by Irish raiders around age sixteen.

He posted at the west coast of Ireland around Mayo just doing slave shit for a long time until he was told by god in a dream to ditch slavery and head back to Britan. After waking up Patrick hopped out of bed and started running full speed toward Britan.

Long story short he joined the clergy when he got back and ended up being really good at religion and this led to that and now we have a holiday dedicated to him where we celebrate Ireland and shake loose all that Lent.

I am not much of a drinker but I do always try to have green around me as the tradition asks. Which also falls in line with my weekend plans to spend time in what I have just now coined "Space Brackets: The merging of March Madness Brackets and hours logged in kotor, as this weekends admission price is free dollars and ninety nine cents."

Sprace Brakets, yup, that was freestyle, I know right? How? I don't know, It's just the flow, it's in me. See even that rhymed, wasn't even trying. Shits crazy.

Issue : Games : Igneous Rock

North Carolina is a state located around the bottom right of the United States of america. It's bordered by South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west, and Virginia to the north. It's said to be the 10th most populous of the 50 states. The North Carolina flag is blue, red, and white, with some words located in the blue part. It's nicknames are "Tar Heel State," and "Old North State."

Obsidian entertainment was working on a video game nicknamed North Carolina, but it's probably not going to happen now. Which sucks, because North Carolina is not something that comes up in conversation usually, and I was looking forward to learning more about the area. Most people seem to only want to talk about California or New York, and stuff in "Middle Earth" usually gets passed over, even though a lot of shit appears to go on down there.

But no worries, Obsidian Entertainment will be keeping busy at work on a new South Park video game. I played the last south park video game and it was aiiight, pretty funny, though not much of a departure from what the tv show covered. But the new one is rumored to be a role playing game so that's pretty cool.

I was a little worried at first when I heard south park would be delving into one of my favorite video game genres, as role playing games are the hardest genre to get diehard fans into actually enjoying, and rpg fans tend to get incredibly vocal when they feel integral elements of the genre (story/combat/etc..) were not properly executed.

But it's south park after all, and they are no strangers to making unpopular topics interesting. I hope the new south park game is worth whatever it cost to make it. Oh yeah, and the new creative heads jobs are in.

Issue: People :Skullomania

A long time ago Saburo Nishikoyama was a down on his luck salesman that agreed to dress up like a skeleton at some carnival, hoping that for some reason this would prove he was an awesome salesman. He liked the attention he got from dressing up so much he decided to go around fighting Street Fighter characters dressed up like Skullomania, or something. C'mon, its a Street Fighter origin story, it is what it is.

Skullomania first appeared in Technictix, and had cameos in a few other titles, but mostly keeps a low profile. He is generally regarded as a tip of the hat to Kamen Rider, who is generally regarded as a tip of the hat to Skull Man. He also has a brother named Shadowgeist,who is fucked up in the head as well, but for different reasons.

Skullomania is sometimes regarded as a troll character in the vein of Dan, Dhalsim, or Law. But this statement is usually retracted when the person saying it comes into contact with someone who has mastered Dan, Dhalsim, or Law. Skullomania diehards have been eagerly anticipating his reappearance, but so far no dice.
