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.

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...

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.

Fuckin' go to work and come back so we can shoot zombies in the face and or glowing orange bits indicating vulnerable

If I weren't a woman, we would have had time to do that before work; but our showers take like an hour.

EDIT: 8 more pointless and shitty posts till 6k! shwoop!

Wii U 1st ad US

Clearly they told a composer-DJ to make the most annoying record scratching sound for their ad.

Monica and the ranged weapons were for the most part useless.  All you really needed was Max and "Steve" and the game was yours.  Monica's Monster Badge was espcially tough to build and especially weak compared to anything Max had.

Oh man.... I can only imagine what horrors will happen out of the bum with that for breakfast.

I bought an American 3DS, because god dammit I'm an adult now and I won't be region locked out of the games I want to play again.

If I ever live abroad, I'd probably do the same.

I'm actually really happy about this given how still pretty pricey the game is (versus its length) and it's kinda hard to find.  Good find, Yggy!

100%'d it.....

Random thoughts:


-Juneakane lost her charm over the years; made for a pretty 20-something though.  It becomes pretty trippy to think about her in her 999 personality when she's pretty damn calculated and pretty far from sweet.  But makes an interesting anti-hero

- Still some lingering mysteries; surprisngly largely untouched was Free the Soul cult and, to some extent, Phi (and maybe why she looks like a gender-bent Santa).  Everyone except for Phi and Sigma had a good "origin story" to explain how they wound up where they are.

- Not really sure where they're going with K/Kyle -- and I'm super confused what has happened with him... making his final conversation as a character merely labeled as "?" didn't help either...

- Holy freaking hell if that one VLR "bad shit is happening" theme doesn't give me the willies.

- The constant door opening was seriously awful to sit through, the layout was really inconsequential to the overall story and gameplay, so sitting through it was uneventful and sadly unskippable 90% of the time...

- Quark and Alice seem to have been more dead/psycho than actually useful

- Alice's vote when they thought she was KOd was definitely creepy; but unfortunately given a lame reason in the "right" path.

- I love Luna, she was genuinely ok.  I liked Seven for the same reason.

- Dio sucked.  Made that way though.  What was with the outfit?  No mystery could solve that one...

- A shame "tin foil" was never brought up again...

- Was there any significant symbolism behind the sun-eating lion??  That flew by me...

- Love the fore-shadowing with why people have magical anime jumping powers: they're on the moon!!!  That concept was sort of...used only when it was convenient though....

- Wtf is with the double-standards?  You watch half a dozen endings where someone hits the 9 door and you just watch them go, then the two times you do you're either rendered unconscious... or  rendered unconscious so the rest of the cast can cut off your cyborg arm and win it themselves and leave you alone forever.

- Good form.  Much like 999, VLR had it that even IF the AB Game winners had escaped, there was really no where worth escaping to; much like how it was unlikely Ace and Clover would have figured out the Q-door puzzle in 999.

- Loved Tenmyouji... his reveal was subtle and wonderful, definitely hinted at, but hard to theorize given the confusion between being asleep for 5 days or 45 years.  Wonderful spoiler there.  But... someone's gotta tell him no ass is worth that much attention.  I'm glad Quark was there I guess.

- wtf was with Sigma looking like some Anime Space Pirate?  The right eye thing was a bit much, and his [real and old] face reveal looked funny.  I dunno (or "donno"), if they were gonna do low-res 3D poly with lame animations for certain action scenes, I'd have rather they had their artist draw one good frame than use the 3 second FMVs.  One that note: Poor Luna... her ending was brutal.

- One thing that wasn't really elaborated on was Phi and Sig in the Security Room.  He seems to get hit really hard with symptoms for Rad-6:  He loses his proper thought processing and everything felt sped up (Phi talked at 2x speed), but then he merely loses consciousness, goes for a snooze, and wakes up fine -- this doesn't come up again...

- Which reminds me: The prognosis for Rad-6 is also vague (why did Quark and Alice's symptoms advance so quickly? Under what conditions does it spread?  Why does only one ending deal with this [the mass-suicide in Clover's ending?] ?) and the idea of anti-bodies is disregarded despite being mentioned twice.  Furthermore, isn't it stupid to ONLY make one antidote copy of axelavir?  They shoulda made 50 or something!!!

- The prospect of deactivating four bombs while playing the AB game would have likely had me....expel all/any bodily fluids from mouth and/or bottom.  I sympathized with Alice when she took a scalpel to herself saying something to the effect that it's all messed up she should just "off" herself

- Genius plot; all (ok, well, most) elements made an excellent comeback, 11/10 on that, the writers should be proud and give themselves a jolly ol' pat on the back!

I think I would have diabetes if Lucky Charms were sold when I was a kid. Not that they are sold in shops here, just the American novelty shops. I got a box (so expensive..) yesterday. Got I love cereal with marshmallows in it.

I always try to save marshmallows for every bite, but I never make it and it's not as fun to eat.
I like that the milk turned colour too. :)

I haven't seen Cookie Crisp.  My theory is it's been taken off many shelves because people were just eating cookies for breakfast.  Mmmm.

I'm digging Froot Loops.  I smelt a lemon cleaner (i.e.; lemon being 1/5th of Froot Loops flavour) and had to have it.

I hate Sugar Crisp, but I love that stupid jingle... Can't get enough of that sugar crisp!
