I'll just say that YES, 75% of all video games are complete shit and everybody knows it.

You could probably still argue however that the Wii has an even higher percentage.

You can probably say that about most console games.  Unless you have a collection of 100+ games per console; I usually have a collection of games maintained by the fact they're personal "gems".

Any information if the 3DS is actually 3D?  Or is it 2.5-pop-up-storybook-D that we get in the movies?.

The 3DS' graphics are a surprise.  Suppose the PSP will be officially dead soon?

I was happy about that and Bond.

New Zelda.  Skyword Sword.  I think it's related to the fact he throws his sword up and shoots balls of light.  Heavily reliant on wii controls..... interesting I guess.

This is the best Pokémon-related video to date.

Also, these new games are looking pretty good. But I doubt that I'll play a new Pokémon game at this point, I was interested. But now, I'll not have any money to play Pokémen with so many others games on my list. No big deal.

That...sorta.... and I'd rather wait for ... Pokemon...Gray?
Or whatever 3rd title to the related2 titles comes out.

Final Fantasy V Advance: Mastered the good classes thanks to the 8 BP battles in the castle; and my characters are super-duper since they mastered the relevant jobs to max the stats of the mime/freelancer.  I find the extra jobs thrown in the game are pretty 'meh' save a few useful abilities (ie; ABP Up makes levelling jobs heavenly; and "see ahead" helps the ridiculous encounter rate).

I've been taking on the Advance's secret dungeons - and few rules apply in this place.  One thing I loved about this installment was the surprises with the enemies.  They're always hard, but not without some grand scheme to beat them.

I went back to the final dungeon to beat OMEGA (HARD and unfair; got lucky on the third try, and had to equip some weird stuff to give whatever advantage I could get);and I beat Shinryu with the most tasteless method possible: by casting berserk on him....  Then rapid-fire and dual-wield takes care of everything.

One thing I love about this game is how useful stats/effect equipment is, especially over "stronger" weapons.  The dual wield/rapid fire combo with the blood sword recovers my hero's HP fully every time he attacks.

Goddamn this was such a good game.

We also bought and watched Shutter Island.  We like Leo. :)  Wild stuff.  My wife's a lot less sure about what's true and what isn't at the end than I am, which is totally fine.  I think:

That yeah, Leo's really had a realization that he killed his wife.  But I think it's deliberately left gray whether he's lost it again after the breakthrough or has chosen to sort of commit suicide by pretending that he's lost it.

My impression was it came to him and it didn't go away; and he volunteered himself, just to kind of "forget", or be numb to what had happened.

I fail to see the problem.
8604  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Resonance of Fate Topic on: June 12, 2010, 11:30:38 AM
and who doesnt love the whole "Leanne goes both ways" scenario.

This is relevant to my interests. Pics or it didn't happen.

And a bit of selective reading.  The before battle quote:

Leanne: "Do you want me on offence or defense?"

Vash: "Leanne goes both ways! ...good to know."

Zeph: "Can it, why don't ya."

Even despite the simplicity of this installment - it was always fun.  I loved seeing how characters are when they split up. =)
8606  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Is Square-Enix out of talent? on: June 10, 2010, 10:33:15 PM
I thought FF9 was less remembered because it came out at the end of the PSX's lifespan. And yes, the games took risks, but they still kept what made a game Final Fantasy. I think the newer games, regardless if you enjoy them or not, have lost that.

I wanna see an FF9 remake to look like an SNES title.  I don't know why.  It kinda makes sense maybe (given the "lets go back to owr routes! hur hur hur!").
8607  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: June 10, 2010, 10:30:53 PM

Watched all 6 Harry Potters.
I have to say they're not bad retellings of the original work.  Fuck you if you say otherwise.  I mean this to this who say "it skipped a lot of parts!!", well then I slap you and retort; "The movies always push two hours, all the scenes would make a long 4 hour extravaganza that no one would sit through".
I do like them; and, aside from some of the children, there is a great collection of [british] talent, pretty awesome CGI (better as we move on to the Half-Blood Prince title...duh), and a great sense of mystery - something definitely lacking in films today.

Love Actually
Kinda followed after the Harry Potters.  Anyways, I love this movie.  We may be out of season for it; but it's a bunch of great stories packed in one; each interesting and always keeps you curious to what will happen to each endearing couple.  It covers pretty much every type of relationship-styling, IMO.  A good laugh and a bit of a soft spot.  Fellas, your girls will love it, and no reason for you to groan during this one - it ain't too bad for a rom-com.

Green Mile
I don't really get sick of this movie.  What's there to say?  Touching and interesting story - and emotional when need be.  ...one thing that ALWAYS strikes me odd, but do you find the wardens of the green mile much too soft?  IMO, especially given the southern setting, especially given the times, and especially given their title; I don't find the movie is too realistic in terms of how generous and respectful they are to the death row inmates.  Nonetheless.  Love love.

Stranger than Fiction
Definitely a HIGHLY under appreciated title when it was released (I used to work at Blockbuster).  I love this movie.  For people who doubt Will Farrel to perform roles other than comedy - watch this.  Mind you, the film is a comedy itself; but borders on a drama about life in a very interesting manner.  That, and most of the supporting cast has more funny moments than Farrel himself.  The story is undeniably entertaining, and established great character development throughout.  GO see! =D

lolololol.  Thats all.  Classic film, and you have to love how they break the fourth wall.  I like Mel Brooks' more old school "ha-ha" humour.  It is much unlike the Apatow onslaught we've been faced with over the last few years.  Apatow and the like love a sex joke, a weed joke, and some ugly fuck hooking up with a smoking broad.  I do like Apatow films, despite their formula. But I like the clever and quick (almost cute) humour of Brooks.  Anyways, classic film.

The Prestige
Came back to this one.  I love it.  I don't think I can get sick of the lore/setting of the film.  I love the victorian(?) setting amongst two rivaling magicians.  Of course, the film becomes a bit far-fetched; but I think Nolan re-wrote history in a clever way to make an engaging story.  And..c'mon... Tesla!  Fucken Bowie! xo - hottest old man ever.  C'mon guys, you must agree. ;P

Evangelion 2.22(?)
The *second* (of three) film installments that retell the entire series. I've always had a soft spot for Eva, and my GOD this movie is absolutely amazing and a wonderful ode to the die-hard fans who have been supporting it these last fifteen years.  Truthfully, however, I found the first movie a bit of a snore; however there is never a dull moment in the new title.  I thought it very interesting, and I was somewhat apprehensive to the team adding a new character to the series so out of the blue (especially since she was a highschooler - I was worried if she'd just fall into a pointless J-stereotype who galavanted around Shinji to annoy him); but to my surprise, Mari Makinami turned to be such an astonishing breath of fresh air.  She pulls the look of a hot-girl that is so cool you wouldn't think her glasses as nerdy, haha!  I love her.  She is amazingly confident and quite a powerful supporting role.  I found her screen time underwhelming, but it'll be great to see more of her!
The action in this movie is top-notch, the animation is breath-taking, and the score is epic.  Go, go now...go find it!

Get Him to the Greek
I know I just sort of put-down the Apatow-styled humour; but I do ackowledge it's benefits.  This movie was fucken awesome and probably the best comedy I've seen in a while.  No movie portrays crazy parties like this one; and when the movie stars a do-good agent and a rockstar, you would hope for nothing less.  P. Diddy surprisingly steals the show - and the drama (what little there is) is out-weighted by the sheer craziness of the rest of the film; but man, it's got a ton of memorable stuff.
...now who wants a "Jeffrey"? :D
8608  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Is Square-Enix out of talent? on: June 10, 2010, 08:42:33 PM
I found Tifa's theme utter garbage.  Its the same music-box-childhood-sweetheart crap you hear in many femme protagonists' themes.  I like Lightning's theme - especially near the end where it reprises a softer battle theme (where, after the stunning trailer, I'm pretty sure we associated that song with the pink-headed hero).

I do think Squeen has lost its touch.  Producing games is one thing - Jupiter (TWEWY), Cavia (Nier), TriAce (SO,VP...sort of RoF even though the skipped that boat); but in terms of what they have made... well, yikes.

The mid 2000's brought a creepy era of FF titles.  Consisting of mostly spin-offs are scarcely Final Fantasy-ish games (13 having no town and all that, the FF7 spin offs, screwy MANA titles, and pretentious KH titles [sorry to those who like em, btw]).  But yeah; they haven't made a game I've found horribly enjoyable in some time.  I'm sure they will - I'm quite hopeful of what's to come.  I'm pinning a lot on this E3.

I've been replaying FFV (advance) and by GOD that game is HORRIBLY entertaining for such an old title.  I clocked 70 hours (not too bad); but it was always a worth while grind and enemies can still kick my ass.  The graphics are pretty shitty (comparing to today's standards); but I love how little I care about all that.  The story is absolutely paper thin too.  But it was always about the challenge and growth.

Square Enix likes to prioritize their quality of game; but it isn't always necessary, especially if the title is a bore to play.  Graphics can't always "wow" me away from a shitty game mechanic.
Hard to make sense of that, but I hope I'm getting across the general gist.

Yes, but there's a huge Indian population in the Caribbean.  You find a lot of Indian influence in the cuisine.  This one dude from Trinidad I used to hang with in college had an Indian grandfather. 

There's a huge indian population everywhere.  There's a billion in their own country alone.
Love their food.  Had the privledge of growing up next to an indian house - smelling their food every time come dinner has been nice. x)
