Paranormal Activity. A lot of people seem to dislike this franchise and the whole "found footage" sub-genre, but me and my bf love these movies, if for nothing else it gives us a reason to turns the lights off, cuddle up, and enjoy being spooked together. Granted the movies are not spectacular and are not scary if you think about them, but if you want to be scared and switch your brain off, I find them to be quite entertaining.

Beat KotOR. I liked it a lot, and there was some really fun gameplay in there. Owning everything with a lightsaber and Jedi powers is just cool. One minor compaint: sometimes it felt like the story was trying to emulate the movies a little too much. Not saying it is a carbon copy by any means, but some parts were very familiar. A friend told me that 2 isn't like that, so I'm really interested to see where that story goes, although I've known the twist for that game for years.

It feels like I'm making all the wrong choices in the Walking Dead.

The game is a metaphor for my 20s!


I feel ya, bro. I pretty much felt that way through the 3 episodes I played. I really need to finish those last two episodes.

Been trying to finish KotOR 1. Draak's praise of 2's writing is good news, because while the writing in KotOR 1 is very good, the dark side options are pretty much just being a dick. It's pretty much a choice between being a super nice, understanding person, or a total d-bag. Of course, sometimes the dark side choices are HILARIOUS.

Re: titles

I imagine X, Y, and the inevitable Z are references to the fact that this is the first true 3D Pokemon game.

Good point! I didn't even think of that. Kudos to you, good sir!

The X mascot (the elk looking thing) has SWORDS FOR LEGS.

Django Unchained is violent, absurd, full of racism, discomforting, and breathtakingly awesome.

Agreed. This was one amazing film. The best one I've seen all year.

Community is hands-down the best written TV comedy I've ever seen. I haven't laughed so hard at a TV show since I was a kid. I finished season 2 a couple weeks ago and have been watching highlight episodes from season 3. The video game episode was pure gold, and the Ken Burns Civil War style documentary  was so clever and amazing. Remedial Chaos Theory is probably the stand-out episode so far, and I can see how it was nominated. I've never seen a show that deals with friendship in such a realistic way. I can earnestly believe these characters are friends, and I get to spend time with them every time I watch.

I mean, at the end of Remedial Chaos Theory, when the characters are just dancing around and singing Roxanne, that is what friendship is to me: lowering your guard and letting go of your inhibitions and not being afraid to act silly. It's like being drunk without alcohol. I think this show just gets what it means to be in a friendship.

They can never make enough episodes.

I've been playing Dead Space the last couple of days. I've had it on my Steam list forever, but haven't gotten past the 3rd chapter until recently. This game is really good, one of the better survival horror titles I've played in a while. While there are a lot of jump scares, the game has a lot more to offer than just those. The game makers did an excellent job with lighting and sound, with environments where you can't hear enemies coming, or places so loud that it always sounds like something is after you. The ruthlessness and viciousness of the necromorphs is unsettling as well, and while taking on one is not too challenging, having 3 or 4 after you can be terrifying. I just started Chapter 9, and I can't wait to see where the game goes from here. This franchise has definitely piqued my interest, and I will be keeping an eye on Dead Space 3 now.

Christmas with the fam went well.

I got some flannel shirts and pajama pants, which I love.
A Capt. America shirt from one of my sisters
Socks and White T-Shirts
And Virtue's Last Reward for the 3DS

My bf and I exchanged gifts earlier this month, but he me got all 7 seasons of the Golden Girls, plus the first season of Adventure Time and some other assorted Adventure Time goodies, including a Jake cap which is totes awesome. In return I got him the first 2 seasons of Star Trek: TNG on Blu-ray, which he's been wanting.

Dunno if it's obscure enough, but I loved the crap out of Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo. I haven't read the novel, so I can't tell if its an adequate interpretation of the source material, but I found it to be an excellent anime, and I didn't need any prior familiarity with the work itself. The art in the show is to die for, and the opening gives me goosebumps.

I almost freaked out at the German exam pic. That student's handwriting looks exactly like mine, and I studied German from 2nd year of high school through undergrad. Thankfully the Cloud Atlas bit at the end stopped my impending heart attack.

Just spent the past 8 days with my bf over at his place. Me and him made sure to take our vacations the same week. Heading back home today and feeling bittersweet about it. Also had the weirdest fucking nightmare that was a mixture of that anime Chihayafuru and Corpse Party.

I did get FFIV for iOS. I forgot how sexyawesome Kain's voice is.
I'm tempted by this, too. But for $15?! That's rough. I think I can wait for a sale. If Square ever actually HAS sales?

I DLed episodes 3-5 of the Walking Dead.
Then played 2 hours worth of Ep. 3. Oh, my god! The choices this go around are so tough. And the things you have to do and go through. Heart wrenching.  This game has a better story and characters than most movies I've seen recently. If my wife hadn't come in the room...
Carley! That bitch shot Carley! This floored me. She was my favorite character, and then BAM, she's gone.
And then the whole Duck scenario. I sent Kenny's wife(her name is something weird that I forget) to take care of him, and she shoots herself! Then poor Kenny has to kill his kid. This especially tore me up due to having a son a little older than Duck.

I'm really angry about that first part too.

I pulled for Lilly in ep. 2, and Kenny turned into a huge d-bag, despite all I did for him in ep. 1. To have Lilly betray me after all I did for her was a kick in the pants. It's crazy how much this game pulls you in, the characters feel like real people, and when I disappoint one or have one betray the others, it almost kinda hurts for real.

I started playing Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones the other day. I'm on Chapter 8, and so far I haven't had too much trouble with the difficulty, although I did choose Normal instead of hard. Anyone who has played FE:SS, would you recommend doing Eirika or Ephraim's routes? Also, are the trainee characters worth raising? I made Ross into a pirate, but I dunno if I wanna do the same for the other two trainees when I get them.
