I loved Return to Oz. >.>

Well, I was going to mention The Wiz instead, but then I'd just look like a racist.

I recently saw Oz the Great and Powerful... I really wish I hadn't. Fucking terrible. Poorly written; poorly scripted; poorly paced; poorly acted. I like most of the actors in it, but they couldn't save it for me. On the flip side of that, Kunis was incredibly unconvincing as her character (as usual). The iconic wicked witch's laugh doesn't even match her stupid voice. Who the hell cast her in this role???

It's also hilarious how high quality the special effects are, but the costumes/clothing  all look simple and cheap.

This film is a terrible affliction upon the Oz universe. Yes, even worse than Return to Oz. Do NOT see this movie. It honestly felt like we were watching a made for TV movie, and a pretty crappy one at that.

And with regards to shipping, I <3 Amazon Prime.

Hell yes. I first signed up last year, and have no regrets. Especially since I usually place an order 2-3 times a month. What's not to love?

I'm with most here who enjoyed GTA III; Vice City; and San Andreas (my favorite of the series thus far), but don't love IV so much. I'm actually playing through IV now (as I've never beaten it before), and while I am enjoying it for the most part, I feel.. trapped. Trapped by being in 1 unimaginatively designed city. Trapped by having to go on dates and friend dates to get some game play benefits. Some of the missions feel stale and repetitive as well... Don't get me wrong, I like the game. I just don't enjoy it nearly as much as the 2 main releases preceding it...

That being said, I'm looking forward to this new one. I initially didn't like the idea of having to keep up with 3 different protagonists in a game like this, but I suppose it'll add some new and interesting tweaks to game play. I'm happy that there will be several types of vehicles to pilot, and that the environments are going to be much more varied and expansive. I can get real lost in that alone. From some preliminary articles I've read, the missions are apparently going to be much more interesting and exciting, as well.

Time will tell, natch.

Gonna add another FFIV moment I just remembered.

Code: [Select]
During the seemingly hopeless fight with Golbez and the Shadow Dragon: When Rydia unexpectedly comes to your aid with a surprise killer summon.
Total badass-ery.

It's like if Leslie Nielsen was dressed up in drag in a Naked Gun movie and was bumbling a investigation.

Excellent picture, and yes, it totally looks like a Naked Gun scene!

Looks like those wheelchairs have more juice than for which I give them credit.

One of mine off the top of my head is in FFIV when:

Code: [Select]
Cecil conquers his dark side and becomes a Paladin

I'm going in to get my toe looked at hopefully today. I have a giant gash along side one of my toenails that hasn't even tried to start healing in the last two weeks.

Ingrown, perhaps? I had a few when I was a teenager. Could be infected if it's not healing. Just a guess.

Waiting for Super Mario Galaxy 2 to come in the mail...

I still have yet to start that one myself. Owned it for a while now, but it's been sittin on my shelf. My toddler son likes to watch me play games sometimes. I'm thinking that one will really entertain him. Perfect excuse to get it started.

As for my progress in GTA IV, I've finished Packie's missions, and opened up the 3rd island. The last Packie mission, "3 Leaf Clover" (the one where you rob the bank with him), really kicked my ass. I must have tried it close to 10 times before I completed it without dying. I've done half of U.L.P.'s missions at this point. I've chosen to spare the lives of their targets so far. I guess my version of Niko isn't totally cold-blooded... I've also completed Derrick McReary's first mission. I have yet to do any of the Gerry McReary or Ray Boccino missions. 
When it comes to this entry in the GTA series, I miss the comical nature and outright fun of San Andreas, but I guess that's what the Saint's Row series is for. Otherwise, I am really enjoying this one.

Since there are too many:

You're the fucking MVP in this thread

Agreed. Those are absolutely hilarious.

It's Friday! Git down! Uh-huh!

Congrats on finishing FFXII, OP. It's among the many games I've started, but never finished. The difficulty seemed to really ramp up at one point, and I just didn't have the time those days to grind and grind. I'm sure I'll pick it up again someday, as it seems to be a solid entry in the series.

Never played LoD. Sounds like a love it or leave it kind of game...
