Radirgy

Title : Radirgy
Publisher : Milestone
Game Type : Shoot Em Up
Console : Dreamcast

Price : £54.99

Second release on the DC from Milestone following up on their success with Chaos Field ensuring the honour of last release on the DC is extended. Cel shaded sprites are not too everyone's tastes, but given the chance this should satisfy the most demanding of shmup aficionados. The mobile phone reception multiplier adds that extra element to appease the hardcore shmup vet too. Sometimes spelt Radilgy.

Gakkyu O Yamazaki (New)

Title : Gakkyu O Yamazaki (New)
Publisher : Sega
Game Type : Board Game
Console : Dreamcast

Price : £16.99

Toilet obsessed title which looks like Goemon meeting a Mexican wrestler as participants in the board game use a slot machine wheel to determine their progress rather than a dice. Plenty of references to dropping the kids off at the school ensue in an intriguing insight into Japanese humour.

Let's face the music and dance.

For a moment there it looked as if music games had died. Activision had pulled the plug, at least temporarily, on Guitar Hero and DJ Hero, while Viacom had washed its hands of Rock Band developer Harmonix. Soon the news stories became obituaries for the genre that had conquered and cluttered the world with toy guitars.

But just as when the New York Journal pronounced Mark Twain dead by mistake, reports of music gaming's demise turned out to be an exaggeration. Guitar Hero's best days may be behind it, but Ubisoft's Just Dance is flying off the same shelves that were once packed with imitation Gibsons and there's a more-than-healthy supply of new music games on the horizon.

What those declaring the genre's death forgot was that games with pretend instruments are but one strand of a game type that also counts the booty shaking of Dance Central, Rez's techno remix of the on-rails shooter and Donkey Konga's tub-thumping platforming among its number. "Music games include rhythm action controller titles, musical shooters or platformers, simulation games like Rock Band and dance games ranging from Dance Dance Revolution to Dance Central 2," says Greg LoPiccolo, the vice-president of product development at Harmonix.

About

Brain Bleach (a.k.a Mind Bleach or Eye Bleach) is a fictitious product referenced in reaction to someone else’s post containing undesirable online content. Often presented as a cure-all for unpleasant memories or online experiences, Brain Bleach may be served as parodical images of an actual detergent bottle or photographs of beautiful models or cute animals as to reduce the effect of trauma. See also: What Has Been Seen Cannot Be Unseen.

Origin

The metaphor of bleaching one’s brain has been previously illustrated in popular TV shows and films through colloquial expressions like “poking one’s eye out” or “flossing one’s brain.” Such phrases have been quoted on numerous occasions through popular TV sitcoms like Cheers, Fraiser and Friends in the 1990s.

“Pardon me. I’ve got to go poke out my mind’s eye.”
--Frasier Crane, Frasier, “The Ring Cycle” (Airdate: September 24th, 2002)

The online practice of sharing awesome images as a way to cope with post-traumatic stress most likely began on popular imageboards and forums where users are prone to share gross or shocking content, such as 4chan, SomethingAwful and FARK. The earliest documentation of the term can be found in a YTMND[1] site titled “pass the eye bleach!” originally posted in October 2005. The earliest Urban Dictionary[2] entry on “eye bleach” was submitted on September 5th, 2007.

Eye Bleach: a product used on the eyes when disturbing content, in line with internet rule 34, has been viewed and cleansing is necessary. steel wool may also be applied in severe cases.

“Damn it, the image of it is burned into my eyes!”
“Quick, use the eye bleach to remove”

A similar definition entry for “Brain Bleach”[3] was submitted on November 1st, 2007, which was later chosen by the editorial staff as the “Urban Word of the Day” on June 28th, 2009.

Spread

The bleach product is often presented as a cure-all for unpleasant memories or online experiences, most notably shock sites or gross media like Goatse, Two Girls One Cup and Lemon Party. The usage of “brain bleach” is also comparable to that of Rule 34 and What Has Been Seen Cannot Be Unseen image macros.

Although the meme was initially referred to as “eye bleach,” it inspired several variations including “mind bleach” and “brain bleach”; all versions essentially serve the same function. On Facebook[4], there are several groups and fan pages dedicated to “eye bleach” as well as “brain bleach” and “mind bleach.”

Eye Bleach

A product used on the eyes when disturbing content has been viewed and cleansing is necessary. This version is only used on the eyes and therefore only serves for content that has been seen. The term “Steel wool” may also be applied in severe cases. A website called Eyebleach.com[5] was launched on November 13th, 2007. The for-female counterpart website Guybleach.com[6] was launched on December 24th, 2010.

Brain Bleach

Slight different than Eye Bleach, “brain bleach” is the only cure when something awful is thought to have been permanently engrained into one’s memory. Used when “Eye Bleach” and “steel wool” are not good enough, it removes bad memories and DO NOT WANT moments in general. The term has also seen minor usage outside the context of Internet culture, as in “I got wasted last night.”According to the TV Tropes[8] article:

In the sporking/MSTing/mocking community, there exists an offspring named Bleeprin which is a mixture of industrial-strength Brain Bleach and Aspirin -- Aspirin against the headache, Brain Bleach against the Badfic. Also Bleepka, which combines Brain Bleach and vodka. Its application is obvious.

Mind Bleach

Similar to “Brain Bleach”, mind bleach is considered a type of mental palate cleanser and something to clear your mind after being exposed to something disturbing or simply having a bad day. It is sometimes used interchangeably with the term “Unicorn Chaser.”

MindBleach.org[7] was launched on October 13th, 2010. Mostly consisting of pictures of cute animals and beautiful women, the website is intended to help wipe away the unpleasant aftermath from one’s brain.

Search Interest

Brain Bleach raised a peak in search interest in early 2005. General search interest in the meme began circa 2006 with the keyword Eye Bleach. Later in 2009, the term Brain Bleach began to yield some more interest, which was followed by the emergence of Mind Bleach in 2010.
