In Other News – 23 June 2015

2 min read


My cohorts are freshly returned from Los Angeles, where they went to cover all things E3. I have a love/hate relationship with the city. Most of it is tacky urban hell, not too far removed from Johannesburg really – only with more plastic people and far more fast food. If there’s one thing I love about LA though, it’s the readily available Mexican food – and whenever I’m there, I gorge on the city’s array of tacos.

And no, I don’t mean that crunchy-shelled tex-mex nonsense they keep trying to peddle to us, filled as they are with ground beef. I mean the real things, filled with slowly roasted pork, garnished with lime and cilantro. And no, I DON”T care that I’ve written about tacos before. Because goddamit, I want some tacos. Or a taquito. Or some empanadas. A tostada maybe?  I really should have gone to E3.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
