It's kind of hard to believe now, but Laser Tag (or, the more extreme cousin, Lazer Tag) was pretty popular for about fifteen minutes back in the early 2000's. When a laser tag arena opened here in town, it was a pretty big deal.
I was in my local Staples, looking for office supplies for totally business reasons, when I decided to check out the Clearance section. They had the usual stuff: day planners for last year, expired coffee, a notepad that fell underneath a cart and got the cover crinkled up, and so on. But they also had a portable video game player in among the Martha Stewart report covers and the fancy-pants ballpoint pens.
Back when I originally launched this site, I created a ridiculous trailer for it.
Here it is again.
I'm not patient enough to gamble. Every time I sit down to play a gambling video game, I get bored about two minutes into it, bet everything on one hand/slot machine/whatever, lose, and then shut it off.
I actually prefer to gamble with fake video game money instead of real money, otherwise I'd be penniless before my first bathroom break.
Since I didn't really put a whole lot of content into the old version of this site, and I was kind of relaunching it anyway, I decided to move to another content management system, too.
What can I say? I like a challenge.
