Watched a ton of Breaking Bad lately. It is easily one of the best shows on TV. I love Mad Men and Walking Dead to death, but Breaking Bad just blows my mind every episode. Walt and Jesse have to be the two most polarizing characters on TV in the way that you both root them on and feel disgusted by their actions.

Speaking of Mad Men, new season in March! :D

Started playing Aselia. Not to RPG part yet. There's something weird with the way Kotori's mouth is drawn. Also, there's something a bit off about the way Misaki looks. Kyouko and Kaori's designs are pretty clean though.

American Horror Story season finale!
Code:
What the fuck?! The whole family is dead now? I am utterly shocked. I suppose it makes sense, though. Now season 2 can start fresh. I wonder what role that baby is going to play. Vicious little fucker.

Probably be a LONG time before season 2 comes around. Watch this show if you like dark and twisty cluster fucks!


For the next season I think they should do one of two things:

Either A:

Code:
Have Constance move away with the devil baby and have the show revolve around her and murderous, unholy abomination of a grandchild.

or B:

Code:
Start fresh with a brand new storyline. Really, this is where I want the show to go. Each season could be its own self-contatined story, and could even be a different kind of horror, not just a new haunted house.

Overall I thought the finale was really good. They cleared up a lot of loose ends I think. I am satisfied and ready for whatever they want to throw at us next year. Also, it got nominated for a Golden Globe! As did Jessica Lange! While I don't think this show has a chance at winning, I do hope Ms. Lange does. Her Constance was despicable in the right ways.

Beat Mass Effect 2 for a second time with my Renegade Female Shep on Insanity. Playing on that difficulty was a learning experience, and caused me to raise my voice and say some not-so-polite things. Also, Vanguard's Charge Special Skill was pretty useless on the difficulty, since taking fire for more than a few seconds is death.

Dunno what to play next. Been reading Higurashi, so maybe I'll work on this next chapter I'm on. Also got Dark Souls for my B-day, so maybe I'll play a little more of that. I only played enough to know that I am terrible at acting defensively.

(Heavy) Charge isn't all useless on Insanity. It'll knock back your enemy and give you time to melee/unload your shotgun on the poor soul/look for cover/charge again. But yes, it is one of the most challenging classes to play on higher difficulties.

You're right, it did get more useful later in the game when my shield and health were high enough to withstand being away from cover. When I got surrounded by husks or varren, it helped create an escape route. It also makes it really easy to get the Tactician achievement, since you can just have someone use pull or throw and then charge them.

I was going to point out that USUALLY the glitches weren't that big of a deal so long as you kept a ton of saves... then I remembered how when trying to get a mammoth stuck on terrain it floated away then plummeted to its death. Scratch that, you don't get it now you're going to miss all of the awesome glitches.

I had one where I was in a conversation with someone, and another dude came walking by, trying to go between us, but it was as if there was some invisible wall between me and this guy, so the dude walking past just kept moving in the same spot, trying to get through this wall. I lol'd pretty good at that one. Also saw a mammoth somehow end up on top of another one, that was pretty good too.

Dice: Benedryl

Yeah, I think future flu's and cold's are just gonna involve me whacked-out on pills and liquids.

Subway is over-priced.... but I'll be damned if I can make a better Parmesan-Oregano Pizza Sub (olde time favorite)

The Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki is where it's at. I live and love by that sandwich.

Another day,another Septim.

2 more days!

I can't wait either! Gah, I know I'm over-hyped, but I haven't been this excited for a game in a long time!

American Horror Story Episode 6

Good but not great. This one started strong, with something they've teased at the whole time, but haven't really acknowledged:

Code:
Finally one of the main characters knows about the ghosts! I mean, yeah, Constance and Moira and all the rest either know or are ghosts, but to finally have one of Harmons confront it was a breath of fresh air.

The whole Violet/Tate storyline was probably the strongest part of the whole episode. I think Violet reacts in such a believable way in that she let down her guard and let herself appear vulnerable to her parents for once. 

Ben's patient's story was nice and creepy, like a good horror movie, and then that final scene ruined it. What a let down. I mean:
Code:
Having a robber shoot him was so anticlimatic. It's obvious they were setting up for something to happen, and I get that they dont want to just throw in every supernatural trope there is, but it was so awkward and unnecessary to just have some random robber shoot him. There was so much wasted potential in that last scene too, because it was one of the few times I was genuinely on the edge of my seat and really truly creeped out. I guess the only redeeming part about it is that there is an interesting contrast between him being so terrified about something that is not real (the urban legend) and his professed lack of fear of everyday dangers (the robbers), the latter of which might be responsible for his death, not some urban legend.

Not to say this episode sucked or anything. It was still fun and creepy, and the Violet/Tate storyline managed to finally capture my interest.

Grim, what'd you think about this episode? I ask 'cause you and I seem to be the only ones gushing about it. :P

Started playing KoTOR in anticipation for Skyrim. Would have played Oblivion but I can't find my disc.

Anyway, never played KoTOR before, but I had gotten in off of Steam earlier this year. I like the stylishness of the combat, and the dialogue is good. While I'm no stranger to older Bioware games (played a lot of BG2 and NWN1 in my day), I do have to say I'm spoiled on Mass Effect and Dragon Age's dialogue options. Most of the time the good/bad options are actually decent person/dick. Little morally grey areas so far. Not that it really matters, I planned on going Light Side anyway.

sup with all the korean tv shows on hulu?

I dunno, but I've been watching Boys Before Flowers, and I can't help but love this show. It's stupid, cheesy, and terrible in all the right ways.

Just watched the Live Action Skyrim commercial.

Needs more Lusty Argonian Maid.

But in all seriousness, watching these vids makes me wanna play Oblivion to get ready for Skyrim. Officially excited now!

American Horror Story Episode 4

SO DARK. Really, I had to find uplifting YouTube videos to raise my spirits to keep doing homework cause this episode bummed me so much. THINGS KEEP HAPPENING

Although I should have seen it coming,
Code:
when Adelaide was hit by a car,
my mouth was agape. It was just so abrupt that I was taken by surprise.

One gripe though:

Code:
After the nurse passed out/died from seeing the ultrasound, the next time we see the Harmons is when they are back at the house. I know this show leaves the viewer to fill in some of the gaps, but this is a pretty major one. I also get that its a two-parter, but you would assume that the hospital wouldn't just let Vivian leave all of a sudden like that. It just didn't make much sense to me.
