I like Sentinels.  Not my priority of course, but to take damage when the going gets tough (maybe have a medic out while the SEN takes damage), then I dig it.

Any priority on monster types?  I got a Sen, Med, and Ravager.  I feel I have a pretty decent set up, good for most scenarios, otherwise.  I'm on easy mode though (too busy to sit and grind ATM).

I like the game though.  :D

I beat 999.

Coffin/True ending.  Missed out on the Sub and Knife ending (was I missing much??  I feel like I filled in a lot of the blanks with Safe and Axe endings alone... maybe I'll go back).

DAMN they fit a shit load of story in the final 1/9 hours on that boat, they all should have drowned.

But... MAAN Those fucking plot twists are enough to keep you sitting and thinking about it.

Really well done.  A shame we don't see the darker side to Akane to set up such an elaborate trap, I mean some blood must have boiled after her childhood incident to go so far to set it up again 9 years later.... unless this was her way of securing a future that saved her in the past.  Fuck me, that was a mouthful to say. 

There is some backstory that should have been expanded upon (the stuff you can read on the official website, for instance).  In the end, I'm glad Seven turned out to be the guy he was.  Ugly, but freaking heroic start to finish.  Snake and Clover were still unsettling to me... I wonder what we'll hear in Good People Die... which, by the way, after a conclusion like this makes me wonder wtf the new one can possibly be about and why Clover got scooped up again.... alone with "Egyptian Red Herring Lady".  Lotus was okay, I actually expected a bit more.  June was sweet, and I love the reason for her fevers -- how disturbing almost!!!  And Junpei was a fun enough lead; loved his childhood pciture where he's beat up -- it was so cute.

Rightfully, I hated Ace by the end, his alternate portrait freaked me out, and his eye-close-up from the past is just distubingly unsettling and ... a bit over-dramatic quite frankly.  They kinda overdid the prospognosia-drive.  Most people with it, deal with it, and I can't see them setting up a scientific psychic-field to beat it.  BUUUT, being a work of well-strung fiction, definitely tied it into the story brilliantly.

The math behind the game was extremely clever as well.  I can't believe it, personally.  The way June and Santa's number's perfectly cancelled out???  Brilliant!!!

PS: Poor fucking Snake.... wtf.  Eyes?  Useless.  Arms? One missing.  WOW!  He's just a mess.  It doesn't help he looks like Michael Jackson.  By the way, any reason he reacted to "lights" being on? 

Here's hoping we see Good People Die.

Hey guys... I'm stuck.

i'm stuck at Future Yaschas after the paradox got rid of the eclipse... I dunno where to go.  I briefly saw Serendipity, but coudn't get in, and the throne that's blocked by a fallen pillar that I should be able to jump over but Squeenix programmers won't allow it.

Super 8 - Talk about frustrating! It was going so well there for awhile. Then the last 15 minutes happened.
It's obvious Spielberg and J.J. were going for that 80's Speilberg film vibe, and they nailed it big time. The group of kids. The middle America hometown atmosphere. It was so perfect. Even the mystery behind the accident that happens, and what it unleashed was well done. It's like a amalgamation of E.T., The Goonies, District 9, and all sorts of other Alien/group of kid movies.
Unfortunately, they just couldn't pull it all together in the end. It's ends too quickly, with way too many questions and threads still out there. Maybe if they had another 10-15 minutes it would have helped, but I'm not too sure about that. Apparently they were going for a perfect, sappy ending.
So much lost potential. It gets 3 stars for the first 3/4s of the movie being great. watch it until theres 20 minutes left, then turn it off, and finish it in your head.

I thought it was sloppy in regards to the alien...  he was the mysterious alien, he was apparently a sort-of friendly alien, then he went "Ripley Scott Alien" at other times.

The dad was a waste of any sort of badass too.

Everything else was cool...

Oh, except for the fucking lens flare being in full bloom.

I've been playing it again, I love it still.

I wouldn't mind at least an HD version or something if they don't want a full top-to-bottom 3D game.

I HAVE SUMMONER OUTFIT/GENJI BOW CODES.  If anyone wants 'em, PM me. Why? Cuz I could.

Sherlock 'The Blind Banker' - Overall enjoyable, but I had issues with it in spots. I'm pretty sure I actually like Watson more than Sherlock so far. Martin Freeman is just so damn good. Sherlock is coming off as a flawed superhero of sorts. I'd like to see him be a bit more "human". Then the whole things comes down to
the classic damsel in distress. That's the only reason Susan was in this. Unless she plays a part in future episodes? Plus, Watson was trying to get some action on the first date?! Damn, dude.  Slow down a little.
Anyway, I'm still anxious to see the next ep...I mean, movie.

That was actually my least favorite episode of the lot.  IMO, it's uphill still from here.

I streamed through the 11 New Girl!
Hit or miss humour, it's definitely cute though, and hits on "young love" issues nicely.  Zooey is a bit TOO quirky, and something about her makes me think that Zooey thinks a lot of herself (writing her own show, about her, singing her own theme, plot is living with three guys, etc.) but occasionally still passes off as cute when not being too ridiculous.

Only issue?  The show makes a point off a being about a quirky-girl... I don't know how much character development you get from a show like that.

A plus?  A[ny] comedy that doesn't use a laugh-track.

Why wasn't XIII-2 the original XIII?

I wish more people had played XIII-2 and given it a chance but due to the sour taste of FFXIII many have given up on the series.

No offense Laz, but you are Kay have rather awful taste at times and tend to like games for more...unsavoury reasons. :P Besides, I gave up on the FF series way before XIII.

Goosey said that while speaking *through* Laz.

I kinda like the battle system of XIII for being different and operating on different roles made it feel like a matter of quick-thinking tactics.  As an FF, it's a bit too different.  But as a stand alone, I kinda dig on it.

I think the monster stuff wasn't handled too well, it seems to make a point by having them weaker than you.... but I'm still near the start (finished Yaschas[sp?]) and the monsters are meant to be shite.

There's some kind of sporting event coming up?

Clearly not a golfer.

Just saw the side comment on the Summoner's Outfit. Strange, I'm completely opposite of you on that standpoint. I think her standard outfit is horrendous and feel sorry for anyone who didn't order through GS because the SO looks far better.

If anyone wants, maybe I'll snag a few from my store.

As for the comment.  I *hate* the Summoner outfit colours... it's so damned pinkpink, she looks like a 17-year old Japanese Barbie (I can't wait for that military-looking one, she doesn't look as valley-girl).  I DO like the design better of the summoner outfit, but the maroon-pink and white combo of her standard outfit (even if it is waaay generic design, slapped together by 10 different, inconsistent design elements) looks a bit better.

Good luck Yoda!!  Please don't get raped in the even bigger city you visit.

Today... I ...fucked around.  Nothing really got done.  Had an assignment due by 5 and took care of that in 40 minutes.

Did errands though, hung out with dad, and found an awesome new game store in local shit-mall where I chatted up the employee... he played N64 behind the counter.  I hate my job more.

I'd rather them two hook up as well.  After all the shit they're going through?  Some good sex would be nice for the two of them...

But Snow went to go look for Lightning even though Serah looked nuts... can't have Serah be all like, "Umm, yeah, there's someone else" without destroying some of what makes her so innocent n' shit.
