Samba to Salsa

Well, Chicago has spent the afternoon living up to its windy, rainy stereotype.  Ugh.  And I didn't wear my rainboots.

Today's strangest-thing-I've heard-in-a-while goes hands-down to the latest Flintlocke comic on gamespy: http://pc.gamespy.com/flintlocke-vs-the-horde/episode-5-talkin-bout-locks/917205p1.html

I'm talking about the final panel.  Yeah, you'll figure it out.

And apparently Kris Straub of Starslip Crisis is offering his alterna-strip free to college newspapers so as to get the URL out there.  I'm referring to www.chainsawsuit.com .  So, if you work for a school paper, perhaps you should consider it, eh?

On the gaming front, I've been catching advertisements occasionally for Samba de Amigo for Wii that came out last month.  It seems like the modern day answer to Donkey Kong Jungle Beat.  I'm curious to see how difficult it is to differentiate between the 6 directions instead of 4, and there's a battle mode that sounds promising.

Here's Nintendo's site page on the subject:

Now, they just need to incorporate the balance board and call it Salsa de Amigo.

Note to Beta: Wear your Rainboots!

And yeah, that last panel is a little on the weird side.

Oh, and if you're interested Samba, check out Wii Music. You'll like it.
