Finally got Sherlock in the mail. I watched episode(MOVIE) 1, a Study in Pink, last night. I wasn't expecting these things to be 90 minutes long! I prefer normal 45 minute episode shows. 90 minutes is not ideal for a weeknight when I can't put it on until after 9. Does series 2 go the long or short route?
I definitely liked it. Both main characters are fantastic. I love this Sherlock. So cold and calculating. So not human-like. Kinda reminded me of The Doctor!
Martin Freeman as Watson is so...REAL. I love his character.
I didn't like the ultimate "enemy" in this, though. The guy was a total dolt. He just didn't seem(or look) like the type to do what he did.
I'm not fond of Sherlocks brother. Maybe it's just the actor, but he came off "odd" to me. Hopefully he'll grow on me.
Dice talks about Moriarty casting. I can assume he  shows up in the next episode or so? Or did I miss something?

Haha yeaaaah,.  I thought the main bad-guy of episode one was.... really wimpy looking and I didn't expect it.  But I guess it fits into the...

..."no one expects the cabby!"

...shtick, so I guess the lack of evil-eyes kinda made sense.

I do love the casting for Sherlock and Watson... the characterizations are wonderful.

Moriarity shows up in the final episode.... episode 3. :P
It IS 90 minutes, but across only 6 episodes all together?  It kind of balances out.

The few games that I've *loved* on a Nintendo console (not SNES; too many freaking-awesome-games on that one) are enough for me.  Life's too full to fill it with gaming lately, so as long as there are a few games to love, I'm happy with that.

But I really hope the Wii-U turns things around, despite the stupid name.
Either way, I bought the Wii mostly for Brawl... I'm pretty sure me, brother, and friends clocked enough hours into that to justify the entire console.

After hearing the OST New Bodhum and listening to this one.... I kinda like a few tracks sans the vocals. =/

Anyways, not bad so far.
Graphics are stunning, but that's never been the problem, has it?

Haha that shitty moment when you think to yourself... "I spent $60 on ...this?"

Someone needs to get this guy his own short bus.

Fucking 'Fanners!!!  I always wanna quote the awesome stuff that gets said here!!

I'm using that line on a friend.

999.

'Nother ending. 

Wwoooow.... Way to make my jaw drop a bunch of times!!  I got what is called the "Safe" ending (ironically titled?).  Lots of screws thrown around, and definitely big mysteries keep getting caked on.

Quote
Man, Snake took 6 fucking bullets, Ace's "true colours" freaked me out with his new and creepy evil-look, Akane disappears, but I think the best was the final farewell from Zero stating that it was s/he that lost. 

I'm catching on when to get suspicious about peeps.

Brutal stuff... I want more.  But maaaan... I hate reading faster than the text scrolls through... I catch myself just repeatedly pressing "A", "A", "A" to get alone with it.  A *bit* faster would have been swell...

Depends on the price people ask.

But it's definitely case by case, some games you know what you want to play again.

I do love having a Wii to replay classics as well (only wish more were there).

My theory: long transport to work immediately takes a star of how good your day could be.  I've done it, I hate it.  1.5 hours each way, 3 hours a day -- takes a lot out of good valuable "you" time to relax and get stuff done.  No thanks. x(

2 hours of sleep.  I want to die right now.  Spent most of the night writing a paper I'll probably do horribly on.

I'd like to say "I'm gonna go home and make love to my bed", but knowing me I'll stay up doing god knows what.
I also plan on hobo-ing it up and sleeping during my 2 hour break in the library.

Ys 7


See?! I play JRPGs GUYS

You keep trying to convince.  It's just darling. 

FACT: Yoda swings a barbarian sword and wears furry underwear and sports his hair long.  He goes off to defeat trolls and dragons, and Tolkien-folk.

There's a chance they'll rename it.

I think that's wishful thinking. Nintendo formally christained the console last E3. Nintendo has never gone back on a console name after it has been formally announced. Not to mention, there's no reason to, the name has not been met with critical disapproval. In fact, the response has been much more neutral than that of the "Vita". I don't think there's any reason to believe it will be named anything different. Now, they did say that the LOOK of it will likely be different then the prototype they demoed, maybe you're confusing those things.

It's currently scheduled for release in Q2-Q3, which means April - September. Original figures suggested closer to April, but the fact that we've heard so little makes me think that we'll probably see it towards the end of that window.

After all, the last handheld from Nintendo is called 3DS. Way to confused your consumers... sometimes I wonder how people that is not into video games can get a clue at all the stuff that is sold to them with funny names.
How is 3DS confusing? it's a 3D, Dual Screen system, makes sense to me. This is seriously the first time I've ever heard anyone say they were confused about the naming. And even if you do live in a hole and don't understand what the name means... how many thousands of best selling products from Cars to Laundry Detergents are named things like "XT-3025", and have no trouble generating sales. In comparison of a lot of branding "3DS" is pretty simple, and makes complete sense if you take half a second to think about it. "Wii-U", maybe a little less so, but Nintendo is going for cute, and "Wii-U" is kinda cute.

Public outcry against the name "Wii" has probably never been worse, yet it's the best selling console of the generation, adding a "U" onto the end of it isn't going to cause mass confusion.

Working at EBGames/Gamestop... yes, people DO get confused. Parents and small kids (minorities here) are the major offenders. 


yeah i havent seen anyone get confused over the name either honestly

You refused to admit AFD was April Fool's Day.  :P
