Katatonia - Sweet Nurse

I'm about three quarters of the way through with the MM remake, and I'm not terribly enthused with it.  The quality of life changes are pretty good, but the game seems like it's lost its soul in the wake of the visual upgrade.  I don't know if it a lighting thing or what, but everything looks entirely too cheerful and cartoonish.  The original was always bright, but in a more garish, psychedelic sense that made you realize that you had legitimately stepped through the looking glass.  It's like everything in this version is too...polished and scrubbed, I guess.  I don't know how else to put it.

I don't really see why they redesigned the boss battles, either.  The boss in Snowhead bummed me out in particular.  Having to stop and plink arrows at an eye now just sucks the momentum out of that fight.

The more I play, the more I wish I was playing a straight port.

2015 is the year I re-read the entire Wheel of Time series.  Since it's finally ended, I feel like I need to revisit the whole thing to cap off that 20-year journey.

I'm currently twenty pages into "The Eye of the World".  This project is gonna extend into 2016 at this pace.

Bloodbath - Church of Vastitas

2014 was an excellent year for death metal in general, but I'd say "Grand Morbid Funeral" was my favorite album of the lot.

It's the other way around, actually.  You can look at a profile and see which users have ignored it.  Like right now, I can see that two people have ignored you.  Back in the day, I could click that and see who those people were. :P

Dreamfall Chapters is really, really good so far.  It's great to see a game I Kickstarted actually turn out to be good. *eyes Godus maliciously*

If the person who is ignoring me reads this, tell me who you are.




;)

The best part of being an admin was always being able to see who had someone on ignore.  It was like a little soap opera, but with passive aggression.

Hey guys, I didn't agree with your review!  Revamp your whole fucking grading system!

Shadow of Mordor is a complete bastardization of Tolkien, but it is so fun.  I haven't enjoyed an action game like this in quite a while.

I can't help but admire the developers for picking THAT elf to be your ghostly companion, man.  Aim high, I guess.

Katatonia - Dispossession

I've been playing the fuck out of The Old Republic.  Can't decide on a class or a faction, so I've put in roughly a billion hours into a MMORPG where I don't have a character past level 25.  Jesus.

Enslaved - Death in the Eyes of Dawn

News of a new Enslaved album has got me digging through their backlog.

I just did.  Greatness from first post to last.

I give up again. Oh well.

Nobody likes a quitter.

I can't believe "The Lies of Locke Lamora" was a debut novel.  It is far and away one of the greatest fantasy novels I have ever read.
