Webby's First Post

My name is Webby and this is my first post on Near the Atmosphere.

I just wanted to tell our readers how much fun I had with MJ today!  In fact, I painted a portrait of MJ as my way of showing "friendship".  This is how I remember the look in his eyes when I was around.  It was the best!  See you tomorrow, MJ!

Engadget 's Wonderful Wii U Post

Engadget 's Wonderful Wii U Post

I recently wrote a post that explains why I'm such a big fan of the Wii U.

I'm somewhat baffled by the mainstream mentality when it comes to console gaming.  The PS4 sold very well at launch despite a weak lineup of launch titles.  Even now, I haven't seen anything on the PS4 that makes it feel like a necessary upgrade from the PS3.

I'm also amazed by how many Call of Duty games (and other similar first-person shooters) can be released and still sell like hotcakes.  It's a gaming genre that has grown very stale, and I'll never understand what is so appealing about playing a game in which you play the role of a soldier in a simulation of real war.

The writers & editors at Engadget recently posted a brilliantly refreshing article entitled 'Nintendo was right about the Wi U.  We were wrong.'

I'd like to share some of my favorite quotes from this post.

Bug Vs. The Evil Dead

My parents were divorced when I was young, and at the age of 12 - 4 years after they split up - my mom brought home a man for me and my siblings to meet.  He was a truck mechanic for Ryder.  However he had a friend that could get VHS tapes on movies that were still in theaters. The first one he brought to our house was Evil Dead 2.  While my brothers and sister were not allowed to watch it (due to the movie being rated R), I was.  Already being a horror movie lover, I fell in love with this movie.  I even played hooky from school the following day and watched it again.
