Wreck-It Ralph


Kudos to Disney''s marketing task force to (I guess?) pay gaming royalties for their real-life game references with some pretty blatant product placements (particularly Nes-Quik, Mentos, and Subway, the latter being really shoved in your face for no good reason, and Mentos becoming a fucking plot point).  The flick spends waaay too much time in Sugar Rush, and switches all the gaming puns to candy-related puns (and the movie seems to rely a lot on "punny" humour).  And while the plot was creative, I can't say I cared for either Lynch and Silverman doing the leading ladies, being either to rough and too old (respectively) for the role they were playing.

The humour wasn't that strong, I actually thought Rapunzel did way better even if cheesier, but the overall message was certainly better.

I liked the little featurette before.  The paper plane thing was cute, and I loved Disney Renaissance Artist Glen Keane's work heading it.

I only hire female Assassins for my Sisterhood

And then I thought of this:

SO, almost literally, they're dropping a bomb on the world and give it a "rebirth"?????  Pretty messed up, but definitely different.

Anyone else joining the new game??

All I know is Cortana having that shit fit in one trailer and still sounding/looking hot.  Which reminds me, I'm glad she looks more... like a person?? 

Good reviews, may play multiplayer at a buds house at some point since X3-shitty is shot.

I recommend the GBA version; you get a few extra at least (and it comes with a "run" button -- take that sprint shoes). :)

My pleasure Bytor -- hope you and the miss are happy. :)

Bravely Default going at a reduced rate.  Talk to me if you're interested in anything!!

Innocence R is annoying and a waste of potential.  I'll take Xill and even its sequel.

Ever since playing Ghost Trick and Tokyo Jungle, I kind of want a pomeranian. Fortunately, it always takes just a few seconds to remember they're stupid yappy dogs in real life.

Eugh, I find tiny dogs the biggest culprit for barking for no goddamn reason.  Med-Big dogs for me. =/

I'm bored as hell in class so I'm on here now.  Gotta read and maybe game tonight.  I bought the new Prof Layton game to keep me company while I read a ton of the BS I do read ("re-stimulates" the mind to some extent when the reading is that boring).

Awesome footstep sound effects


It's without a doubt a "gamer's game."

I love that "clop" sound of shoes in games.  I love when they keep in mind what a player is stepping on too -- changing for metal steps, grass steps, and my favorite, wood-hitting steps.

I may get it.  It's like fifteen bucks used and if it's a lot like a macabre[?] Zelda game with puzzles and dungeons, I'm sure I'd like it.

I'll just trade for it too; get rid of the Infamous collection.  Maybe it was how gross everything looked, but the game didn't sit well with me, and the story telling was so...hokey.  I'll sit with my Ass Creed for the sandbox style me thinks.

Beat Darksiders 1. Lots of fun. I didn't have any issues with the dungeon length. Maybe initially yeah, but the puzzles get really creative later on and the later dungeons make use of all of the "tools" you get not just the one you find most recently. Combat is fun but aside from the 1st boss they're all pretty easy, but still fun.

Games felled so far in 2012
alan wake
resident evil 5
dragon age 2

infamous 1
uncharted 2
batsy: arkham asylum
ass 2
Deus Ex: HR
Darksiders 1

I may have to get Darksidaz 1....

I like Batsy.

Okami: why are NPCs so annoying in it???

Cloud Atlas - Heck of a lot better than I thought it would be.  Very impressed, very well directed, and a great ensemble.  Something about Game of Thrones occasionally irritates me when I'm happier to follow some character's stories than others, but I didn't have that problem here.  Each story was interesting in its own way.  After an awkward start, they made a complicated but still easy to take in multi-story

Butt seriously: I wanna take their make up artists to make me Asian, Black, and a Man -- I hope this gets an academy for its makeup and prosthetics.  They could have done better with Doona Bae as a white person, but liked how she turned out for later chapters.

soooo......anyone else think leons campaign should be called helena's campaign?

Oh Fuck yeah.


6388  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Resident Evil 6 on: November 04, 2012, 12:57:07 PM
That part would make me drop the game without co-op.... I was pretty scared.  I hate being chased by shit you can't kill.  That is a nightmare.

Chris' campaign seems to be the one most peeps have issues with -- but I'm still having fun.  Co-op really has a profound effect on how much you enjoy stuff, even shittier parts.

Dunno what to do against human-squid-fish of death and his obstacle course though...

I laughed. xD

Zone of the Enders:  PS2 Awkward but with potential.  Can I just jump to the 2nd game?  I love the crappy anime FMV models -- I feel nostalgic

Baten Kaitos Origins: I love the shit out of this game

Okami HD: Lovin' it more than Micky D's.  HD definitely works for this game.

Virtue's Last Reward: 100%'d it.  I want a third game right the fuck now; amazing, amazing game!  Some flaws, but definitely waved off after everything else.
