Watched Batman Begins last night.....I really don't get why this movie is so well loved. It was alright, but that was about the extent of my feelings for it. >.>

...getting married mid-sword-fight,...
Oh come on that was freaking awesome. I wish I could get married in the middle of an epic sword fight during a maelstrom.

Been playing Skyward Sword. On the final boss fights.....and oh  wow do I ever hate the controls for this game. I got to the second stage of the second to last boss fight, and I looked at a guide to see what the fudge I am supposed to do. Guide said that I am supposed to match his sword strikes. I tried that.....and that ain't happening. Timing just does not work. Either I am too slow to notice his tells or I notice them and I completely miss him. I was going to give up, but I checked the message board and saw two alternate strategies for fighting this stage, so going to try those tonight. x_x

*shudders* This game is probably in my top ten worst games that I have ever played list. Mostly because I found the story's obsession with absolute pacifism while you have to go fight things to reach the point of ridiculousness.

Watched the Christmas special a few days ago and forgot to post my thoughts. I loved it. I loved just about every continuity call back. I found it a very nice way to wrap things up with Smith. Plus I loved how they handled the origins of the Silence Sect. I give it an A-.

I know vesperia is a 360 title and thus not a thread appropriate title so forgive me.
Tales of Vesperia is a PS3 title also! I have a copy of it in my living room!......now if only the translation patch would hurry the freak up. Oh well at least skits, story, and NPC dialogue have been verified. Just 2% for Misc., 8% for Menu, and unknown percent for the Bar of Magic till I can finally enjoy it in all its glory!

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

(That's actually a horrible cliche that normally I dislike, but it seemed appropriate here...)

Seriously, Klyde, if you don't like the game then just don't play it.  Games are supposed to be fun.  Recreation.  Why do you do this to yourself?
As someone who recently forced his way through Last Rebellion because of the fact that it had been on his backlog for years, I think I can answer that. Some people simply have a compulsion to complete things, and once you have started something you cannot leave it unfinished. It is like a nagging feeling. If you ignore it, eventually it will weaken, but it never truly goes away! It is simply the way we are wired.

We (finally) hit the Roll goal yesterday. Now it is set up so that it is 5k between every currently announced stretch goal. Next up is getting Cut Man into the game. Now then I need all of you to surrender your money to the game  so that I can get color minis. Surrender it!

With the exception of the Dragon Quest installments they worked on, I've never found Level 5's RPGs to be particularly enjoyable. I'm not sure if it's the weak writing, boring combat systems, or higher emphasis on synthesis/alchemy, but I just can't get into them.
Aww I actually like Level 5.....I mean I can't deny that most of their games are flawed at best. But I still like them. If they could just put in an extra ounce of polish I think they could make decent game. :(

It's mot like Gundam AGE's crappy science (which probably consisted of people going "what looks cool/fun to animate" which isn't unique to AGE anyway) was definitely not the problem that show had. You can even hand wave all the stupid "why not just move away from the fucking planet" stuff in the show if you really had to like you can with all scifi and fantasy, the show just failed from a fundamental storytelling/structure viewpoint.
It also failed on a character level in that the third main character is one of the most annoying characters to ever exist. Gen 2 was actually decent imo and Gen 1 was.....meh. Gen 3 though? Oh god shoot me.

The talk of random encounters during puzzles just reminded me of one game I played a while ago which occasionally had jumping puzzles (or maybe it was just platforming) where you could get random encounters mid jump, resulting in you falling to the ground afterwards and having to restart. I can't remember for the life of me what the game was though.

Finished Pandora's Tower with 100% yesterday. Enjoyable game. Liked the story, battle system was nice, disliked the chain controls, also disliked the complete lack of camera controls. Endings were nice, although I wish that the scene I needed to make the backstory make sense hadn't been hidden in the credits of the S ending. Well whatever.

I need to decide on my next game. My backlog currently has Skyward Sword, Disgaea D2, The Guided Fate Paradox, and Persona 2. Well actually has a few more games for Vita and 3DS, but I am holding off on those for the moment. I think I am going to go with Disgaea D2, but I will have to see if that is what I am in the mood for in a few hours.

All of Pacific Rim.....I don't care if it isn't a valid answer.

Is there a specific reason for the hatred towards iOS? I mean, I understand it if the quality of the game suffers but I doubt that would be the case here. It actually looks as if it would fit in naturally.
Because Apple is the devil. :p

A snuggie?

Yep, that's it. I guess I should try it some time, though it does look kindy dorky...

Just say you are a wizard when you are wearing it.
