Spider-Man Games Deal

This Activision Investor Relations Press Release (thanks Frans) reveals plans to continue to create game tie-ins with the Spider-Man movie series through the year 2017 (at which point actor Tobey McGuire will be 42 years old). Word is:

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov 29, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) announced today that the company has signed an agreement with Spider-Man Merchandising L.P., a limited partnership between Marvel Entertainment, Inc.

Who cares? My father is 57 and he's a hardcore gamer like me. I'm 34 been gaming online since Qtest.exe (10 years ago) not counting Doom. Luckily we have learned to balance gaming with regular life so that we aren't complete losers. We still love that gaming though I'll be gaming for life.

He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.
