Same actors different characters would be good, I love that kind of thing.

From what I hear, that's exactly what they're doing. The promos they've been showing have been awesome.

My superficial side is a tad disappointed that there's no hawt men this season (Mr. Levine is marginal), but for you lady-lovers, Chloe Sevigny is certainly showing some skin.

Here are two promos I really enjoyed:

I'm not interested in it enough to watch it.
Nor am I. My younger brother loves the hell out of the show and keeps trying to get me to watch it. I'm so sick of the whole drug thing, though. I have no interest in watching a show about drugs, no matter how good it is. I'm sure there's much more to it, but that's the basis, right?

I seriously had the same thoughts before I was convinced by my friends to watch it. I didn't really have any interest in any show based around drugs and the trade around them, but after I started Breaking Bad, I fell in love. Like Star says, it's more about a man with cancer trying to help out his family while he can. It's absolutely one of the best shows I've ever seen and (IMO) the best show being done right now, on ANY channel.

What would Kent's campus have that OSU's wouldn't..?

Shit, my bad, I didn't realize how misleading my message sounded. Sorry for the vagueness.

 Mentioning Kent was in reference to my Library Science suggestion, since Kent is the only ALA accredited school in Ohio that offers a Masters in Library and Information Science, and that they have a campus in Columbus.

Although I haven't played a MGS since 2, I may have to now.

Also: Damn, Snake is hawt in that poster in the OP.

I have a degree in CS and I work as a software tester. I don't like my job and want to find a new job. The problem is that I sort of hate the direction the IT industry as a whole is going in and really, really don't want to do IT work. I'm only really qualified TO do IT work, though.

What the fuck do I do?

Go into Library Science? It's somewhat related, but may be different enough for you to stomach. Kent has a campus in Columbus as well, if that helps.

I've recently gotten really heavy into Rift, and I really enjoyed what they showed about their new expansion at PAX. All the news about it was really positive, IMO.

This was after the event, by the way. I wasn't there, although I'd love to go sometime.

And now the waterfall angel mission. Just what exactly hurts her?

Best bet is probably gonna be leona and iirc, weapon damage +3 is extremely effective

If you can get your hands on it, cycle up and the double attack gem are also good choices on top of Weapon Damage +3.

Bytor where do you live? That generic ass stripmall looks familiar.

BTW have some quasi-rural Ohio:

Now that's just cruel. Mr and Mrs. Patient should have thought better than to name their daughter Hysterectomy.

Breaking Bad

A good friend of mine said that Walt is the Light Yagami of Breaking Bad. After this episode, I totally agree with him. The villain of the last season of Breaking Bad is Walt.

Aint no party like a Corpse Party, cause Corpse Party is pretty fuckin' scary!

But yeah, it's mostly a VN with some light adventure game elements, and if you like horror games, this one delivers.

Maybe they'll just stop making new numbered titles and just keep making direct XIII sequels. Then when they get to XIII-XIII you'll play as the Munsters.

I even got your battle theme right here!

Walking Dead Ep. 1 & 2.

Pretty fuckin' good. Them choices man, them choices. I thought ep. 1's was hard, but ep. 2's put ep. 1's to shame.


I liked Kenny up until I sided with Lilly regarding Larry in the meat locker, and Kenny suddenly pissed. I understand where he's coming from for wanting to kill Larry, but he up and left me to die when the dude with the gun was gonna kill Lee. Fuck that fucker. I didn't like Larry either, he was a huge d-bag, but now I feel betrayed.

Went CD shopping. Got copies of XTC - The Big Express, XTC - English Settlement, and Spiritualized - Ladies and Gentlemen we are Floating in Space.

P. thrilled.

--- Also ---

(Goddammit This World Over sounds like the Dark Omen theme quite a lot)...

Anyway, was reading an article about game stereotypes the other and they mentioned one that really annoyed me: Games are okay with homosexual characters as long as they're lesbians, but gay males are never present.

Let's think of examples that break this trend.

Ultima 6, 7 - No actual romance in these (you can sort of romance a woman in U7, a little). However, you do meet gypsies in U6 that you get to bang in exchange for a map piece. And you can pick either the male or female gypsy, no matter what your gender is. In U7, you also encounter a brothel where you can have relationships with prostitutes of either gender.

Also the prostitutes in U7 aren't portrayed as horrible degenerates or anything, which is sort of important considering it's not an actual gay romance subplot.

Wild Arms 2- Sort of on the fence about this one, since the US version was censored to make this less clear. I think it's pretty clear that Brad swings both ways, though -- and he isn't stereotypically gay at all which is great.

Innocent Sin - You could date that one guy. I never played this game much. Sorry.

IIRC Fable and the Sims both allow same-sex relationships for males.

This is seriously all I'm coming up with.

As long as TvTropes doesn't make you implode, like it does for me sometimes:

Have you seen the Kurosawa classics?

Rashomon is one of my favorites.

Rashomon is fucking fantastic. I also liked the other two Kurosawa films I saw: Yojimbo and Sanjuro.

I've been reading the Walking Dead recently, and it put me on a major zombie kick, so I bought Romero's Dawn and Day of the Dead, and also the Night remake done by Tom Savini and the Dawn remake. The Night remake was my first zombie movie, so it holds a special place in my heart, and while it's still a good film, I think I was remembering it with rose-tinted glasses. The characters are certainly more likable (Barbara) than the original, but it loses the theme of racism with the modern translation. Also there was some unnecessary cheesecake that just didn't fit with the movie at all.

Dawn (original) is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I could watch it every damn day. Love love love love love this movie, and it still holds up, blue zombies and all.

I didn't like the original Day when I saw it years ago, but it has grown on me. It has some of the best-looking zombies I've ever seen, and that's no surprise, since Tom Savini is an FX master. Now that I've seen it about 3 times, I can safely say it is one hell of a good zombie movie, even if the middle parts drag and the whole Bub storyline is a bit hokey.

Haven't watched the Dawn remake yet, but I have seen it, just been a while. I imagine I'll still like it, and try to overlook the irritating bits that I blame on Zack Snyder.
