Yes folks. The moment I know you and every guy or gal who ever stepped foot in an early 90’s arcade, propped a quarter on the machine, and waited his turn to be the “new challenger” draws near.
Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD comes out on PS3 tomorrow! This remake has seemingly been years in the making, and its finally upon us, happy day for all.

Ray’s favorite iPhone apps
posted by Ray on Nov 26, 2008 6:54pm
Whether you’re a Blackberry man or iPhone (wo)man, you gotta admit the App store is pretty rad. I’ve been using the iPhone for a good while now, and have come to rely on a few apps that make my daily life easier, keep me busy while driving (yeah I know its illegal, sue me), and suck up any remaining free time I might have left in a day.
Here’s a short list of stuff you should check out if you’re so inclined…
1. Pocketmoney ($9.99)
Not only does the app’s icon make me think of delicious pork bacon, it also helps to keep your money straight. You can set up checking and savings account, and keep a running ledger of your spending so you don’t have any more of those all-too familiar, embarrassing moments where you’re trying to buy a bag of cheetos and a Quik but don’t have any loot left on your card. Yeah, I know what you’re probably thinking right now. “I have a perfectly good paper register the bank gave me when I signed up for my checking account, and that shit cost me $0.00.” To that I say, “But your register doesn’t have a sick ass pig icon!”
2. NetNewsWire (The world is going to end soon FREE as fuck!)
This program is great! You know when you’re having an important conversation with your wife about what you’re making for dinner that week, and she’s trying to write out a shopping list, and all you can think about is the latest post on Gizmodo detailing what GHZ the new intel iCore7 processor tops out at after overclocking with Nitroglycerin? Yeah, that happens to me too…Well now instead of just thinking about it, you can take out your iPhone in mid-conversation, pissing off your wife in the process, and read all the latest RSS feeds that you can stand. It even works for our site too! Huzzah!
3. Super Monkey Ball (I paid $9.99 for this??? I’m a sucker)
Ok, I bought this because it was the #1 app for weeks straight. It had to be good right??? RIGHT? Well its not. I mean it has good graphics, but the controls suck. They really, really suck. Driving your dad’s Nova after ingesting 10 beers at the college kegger, trying to balance a tall glass of Sunny D on your head while headbanging to Stone Cold Crazy is exponentially easier than controlling this mess. After maybe 5 tries playing the game proper, I decided it’d be much more fun to send Baby and Gongon repeatedly and utterly to their death. I hate this game. But it sure is a great time waster…
And there you have it. Three essential iPhone apps! Have fun, be safe, and Happy Thanksgiving!
