I was surprised that dungeon fit so much to do while being so small. 

Final thoughts on the title: they replaced creativity with gimmick... much like the wii does in of itself.

Playing Twilight Princess even though I should probably be playing newer and unbeaten games.  But, eh, what's fun is fun.

Goddamn this game is pretty.  There is no cooler looking place than when you're doing that stupid howling shit and you see the "Hyrule landmarks" poking above the clouds.  I want another one to look like this.  As much as I admire the change of art direction over the titles, I think Nintendo hit their prime and hit their stride with this.

Legend of Mana is one of those games made amazing by almost everything other than gameplay. :O

I'm doing a replay of Zelda: Twilight Princess.  This game's dungeons were extremely cleaver, especially the fire dungeon when comparing it to OOTs, WW, and the first fire-themed SS temple, aka "Earth" Temple (the second being better).  I love the dynamic of crossing it with metals/magnets, outdoor, and even some water elements... it was a proper mine.

I also liked the Lakebed Temple as a more simple take of the feared OOT Water Temple (which was skipped over in WW).  But still clever, but a bitch to get started.

I have a dreamcast.

I've recently realized a goal I want to aim for, and it couldn't have come at a better time than the New Year.  I'm getting the fuck out of Canada and moving to Europe at earliest convenience.

That's exciting. Seriously, such a huge adjustment is worthy of a huge celebration and I tip me glass to you. What country?

Thanks Van-g.  :)

Not sure in terms of country and all, but this is the first idea I've had in a while about my future I've felt sure and confident about.  At least I''m not leaving behind a huge legacy and about 200 of my closest friends.  Dicey feels... good. :D

That seems like an interesting thought and something I have considered too, but I would never know what to do about my stuff, finding a job/house, etc.  Hope it works out for ya, or at least figure out what you wanna do.  At least wherever you go you can tell people you're Canadian and have a lot less hate directed your way.

Setting up shop will undoubtedly be the hardest part, but I'll manage, I've worked through a lot of tough bullshit so far.  I'm gonna do well in school ( :D don't do drugs either, kids!).  But I have a reason and all that now, and something to work towards.  My theory: if I start in a poor-European country, it'll be an easier start as I look more qualified in comparison.

...and yeah, I won't lie, I look forward to saying "I'm Canadian", than American. : /

my buddy kev and i are going to do a gaming-thon tomorrow. gonna play a shitty game through

This one, yeah?

Yeah, I'm really hoping we see the end of hand holding partner characters after this, or at least it reduced down to aiding new players at the start of the game and not through the entire thing and focusing more on developing them as characters period. I kinda wish Aonuma didn't have that 'going on an adventure alone is boring' thought process because the feel is entirely different with other characters and without, but if we HAVE to have someone like this they should be a developed character like Midna, not just some guide who practically belittles the player.

Midna was perfect.  She only helped you with a boss after it hits you and you don't get what the hell you're doing.  I thought Skyward Sword played the Nintendo-hand-holding card too often.

Legend of Dragoon is one of those oddball games where the first two disks are meh but disks 3 and 4 are good.  Why the game waited until disk 3 to finally get good is beyond me, because most gamers would have lost their patience with the game by then. 

So it was the FF13 of its day - except the combat sucked.

Wait!? Which one was the one that had the sucky combat?

LOD, I thought that was obvious!

Credit to it: at least battles aren't based around the "auto-battle" button.  I think the name itself says enough about what to feel about it.

I've gotta see that one - looks very interesting.

We watched Moon this evening.  I liked it just fine.  Wife hated it.  She figures out how every movie is going to end within about 10 minutes of the start, so it was just a long, boring trail to a conclusion she knew was coming.  Also, we both hated 2001, and Moon has a similar feel.  I did get her to admit in the end that Moon was an hour better than 2001, seeing as how it's an hour shorter.

I loved Moon for being an amusing blend of sci-fi, horror, and mystery.  It was eerie and compelling, though it can be tough to sit through either for the way it likes to drag on or the Rockwell almost literally starts falling apart.

I'm dying to see Hugo as well..

Watched some rom-coms.  I watched Sleepless In Seattle, an alleged "classic" of the chick-flick genre, but I thought it was freaking terrible.  I hate movies where a couple stays apart except near the end, this happened in Serendipity too, both making use of the "love at first sight" shtick than actual chemistry.

More of Tom Hanks in the 80's, I watched Big.  Again, for the amount of acclaim, I thought it was really underwhelming.  At least the kid-turned-adult plot was less creepy in 13 Going On 30, Jen Garner falls for her childhood sweetheart in the future and they make out a bit, Big was just awkward when his femme-interest shows her undies, then, when T. Hanks is a kid again, she drops him off at home. x_X

I also watched Beginners, and I loved it.  Christopher Plummer is a great actor, and Ewan McGregor ties the flick really nicely as well.  Totally recommend it.  It's sort of the fancy-cinematography and the weirdo-unique script and quirks you usually see in these Indie flicks, but tells a sad but familiar story with a lot of sweetness and charm.

SOPA wouldn't have to happen if the quality of "intellectual property" wasnt so shitty.

Stop making shit that people dont think is worth their money, but they really want anyway. If people truly like a product/movie/game/song/beastialityvideowhat? they WILL pay for it.

Simple as that.

I wish that were true.  I truly do.  But look at The Witcher 2.  Fantastic game, pirated by millions.  Doesn't matter the quality of the product - piracy is going to happen either way.

There are of course the murkier questions of how many seriously play the games, did it only to test, bought the game afterwards (or ALREADY owned it), or if they even installed it. Still, there's enough assholes that'll go and pirate games just to save money, plus you don't want a mindset cultivated of just downloading everything you can to be cheap.

I always argued a fair price, a cheap price more like, would justify to more legitimate downloading of productrs.  I wish digital downloading was more mainstreamed.  It's kinda of in an awkward puberty phase right now.

I don't mind the controls of general running and sword swinging, but it's fucking frustrating when you're pointing the wii mote at the center of the screen and the on screen aiming tool is somehow veering far to the side.  The centering function helps, but with precision aiming like bow and the slingshot, it gets incredibly annoying sometimes. 

Yeah, I miss the Z-targeting.  Obviously the plan was to emphasize only on sword play.
