I thought John C. Reilly did a great job in Chicago.

Ditto, and Mr. Cellophane is probably my favorite number in the whole film.

Sherry is a pushover then.  Damn, I wanna be Jake. :(

I think Piers wins between Chris and him.  Piers certainly starts with a better set of guns.  His "final chapter weapon" seemed pretty booming, but apparently controls like hell.

My friend actually liked playing as Sherry the best of the three he played (Helena, Piers, Sherry). He really liked her stun rod. However, I can see your point about Jake; in terms of melee, he was the easiest to control of the three I played. I hated meleeing with Chris, I found his moves to be kinda awkward.

Totes finished this game a week or so back. Been playing it with a friend co-op, so I haven't done Ada's yet. Waiting on the co-op DLC for that.

Impresshuns time!

Best campaign: Leon & Helena. I just loved the environments and enemies of the campaign much more than in the other two. There are also a lot of great nods to RE2, especially a great tongue-in-cheek one at the end of the first chapter. My fav moment is during the end of the campaign when Helena up-front asks Leon,
Code:
"You have feelings for Ada, don't you?" And I just wanted to high five her, because Leon totes wants to toss Ada his rocket launcher.
I ended up really liking Helena, and I hope she returns in future games.

Jake and Sherry are a close second, since I think their chapters have the greatest mix of game play; from exploration, to puzzle solving, to stealth, to combat (both melee and firearms).

Chris and Piers' campaign has some problems, but those have already been mentioned in this thread. However they get an award for (End of Campaign Spoilers)
Code:
Best almost kiss.

Gameplay wise the controls were a bit wonky at first, but hey, it's Resident Evil! While they took some getting used to, I don't think they're bad, they just a bit of a minor learning curve. The last third person shooter I played was Mass Effect 3, and I kept trying to emulate its cover mechanics, and always ended up leaping over the cover. I love the herb system in this game, and I hope they keep it.

All in all I'm quite satisfied. Can't wait to do Ada's campaign and to see what else they're coming up with DLC wise. While I think it may be unlikely, I'd LOVE to see additional DLC campaigns for other RE characters, like Jill or Claire.

Romney finally concedes.

I think the real reason isn't Ohio. I think the real reason is that he was writing his damn concession speech.

Now Ohio can go back to not mattering except for meth labs and the Amish.

I totally read that URL as "Is that Cher dead yet?"

Walking Dead

Well fuck.

Dunno what to do against human-squid-fish of death and his obstacle course though...

If you're referring to what I think you are, then that is probably my least favorite part of the whole campaign. The part is too long and the camera changing just does not work well in your favor. I'm also biased because my bud's controller was screwing up, and I also forgot how to slide ><, which caused us to fail a good 3 or 4 times.

Nearing the end of Chris' campaign...

I can see some of the complaints. There are a few vehicle segments that are completely lame. Chasing Ada on some highway in China that looks like a ps1 ridge racer course is laughable. In the later part of Chris' campaign you're on a boat. The environments there are pretty bland and pretty void of detail. It's pretty uneven, pretty much all of the areas in Leon's campaign had a great atmosphere and look to them. You could tell they took some time there. But the last 1/2 of Chris' campaign feels very rushed and suffers for it.

If I wasn't playing co-op I would be pretty unhappy, I imagine.

I agree with you about all of this, except I really liked the environment of Chris's last chapter, as well as the part in his 4th chapter where

Code:
you have to collect the three card keys and you're being chased by those regenerating enemies, and its all tight corridors and dim lighting. Probably the most unnerving part of his campaign.

I remember renting the original DQ7 years ago and having a blast with it. This might be the first DQ I buy.

Yet never any penis.... then again I don't even know if women wanna see that.
I find it annoying.  Not so much Game of Thrones, but I hate that every goddamn HBO show seems to have this as a show requirement of some sort.

Actually there are! And not just one, but I can think three separate dongs that have appeared in all their glory over the course of GoT. Of course, one of these was certainly not supposed to be for sexy purposes.

And I certainly aint complaining when one pops up on screen. ;)

Just came back from a kick-ass Halloween party. My Riff Raff costume I bought from Amazon was shit, but the epic game of Cards Against Humanity made up for it. I was stone cold sober the whole time too. Had to shave my beard for my costume though; let it never be said that I've never suffered for my art.

Also, thanks for the congrats. Y'all are terrific. :D

Last, and certainly least, I checked out Ghost Stories in my search for more seasonally appropriate viewing..... This was so bad I don't even know what to say...From what I understand there was a re-release called Ghost School (or something like that) with a far better dub.... As for Ghost Stories, I have nothing at all good to say about it.... period.

Far better dub in this sense means a total re-write. The people writing the dub were aware how bland and boring the original material was, so basically they threw the safety net of good taste out the window and came up with a script designed to make as much fun out of the show as possible. The humor is hit or miss, but I personally found it hilarious.

American Horror Story: Asylum

I agree 100% with Tunnels above. The show is completely screwball crazy right from the get go. So many characters. So many questions.
It's a little odd seeing the same actors from last season, but in different roles. It's hard not to expect them to act the same. I'm not sure this was the best decision.
Adam Levine sucks at acting, but the lucky jerk gets to mack on a hot chick. His role is pretty minor, though.
James Cromwell as a (mad?) scientist! That's cool. But I agree that his exchanges with Sister Jude(Lange) were a bit "off". It's like they just started working together even though this has supposedly been going on for quite awhile.
Still, I'm intrigued as to what he's up to, as well as the roles of the myriad inhabitants of the asylum. I think they went almost a little TOO "out there" with some of them, but it's really too early to tell.
It's definitely a fun show, and I'll be there next week.


I know what you mean about expecting the characters played by the recurring actors to act the same way as their season 1 counterparts. I seriously kept expecting Lange's character to speak in Constance's southern drawl.

Judging from just the first episode, I really liked the reporter lady. I'm going to "root" for her this season, for sure.

Code:
And I felt so bad for her. To find out the person she loves signed her away to an asylum? Talk about a kick to the pants.

 I also loved Lange's character, even if I think she's a horrible person (the character, not Lange). Loved her fantasy in the scene with the monseigneur.

I got promoted, woot woot! Still part-time, but the job I'll be doing will be basically one step below what I'm going to school for, and I'll be doing a lot of the same work, so I'll have tons of relevant experience if I don't fuck it up.
