I'm stupid excited for FE: A and Tales of Xillia. Those are my top to most anticipated games that I know are coming out this year (barring anything unforseen and unholy). However, if the news about DA3 is for really realz true and we will get it at the end of this year (which I entirely doubt) then that will be my absolute most anticipated.

The Yuri outfit is pretty boss. And you got the pose down and everything. And those boots! They look really well made! I say nice job man, you make a good Yuri. *two thumbs up*

Also, I sort of love the Zelos in the third pic.

Started up Guild Wars 2. Made a Norn Warrior, and I've only visited the starter zone and the Norn capital, but so far I'm quite impressed. The developers have put a nice amount of detail into the game, and the community seems pretty vibrant and active, especially the roleplayers. If anyone is interested, I'm Gwulf.1724 on Tarnished Coast.

Speaking of dense fantasy, I've been pushing myself through Tad Williams' Shadowmarch. Part 1 of a quadrilogy, I've got to say, not a lot has happened. I'm about 2/3 the way through and it looks like things are finally starting pick up, and the one character who got on my nerves is finally becoming interesting. I like Tad Williams, so I figure I'll give the second book a shot after this, but as of right now, my next novel is gonna be A Feast for Crows. I wanna catch up completely on ASoIaF by the start of the new season.

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.
