^ My biggest concern with that (aside from the fact that the original aired almost 30 years ago) is that Alan Young will be like 3-4 years shy of a full hundo when they start producing this. I'm doubtful he'll be up to voicing a full-on series. Hopefully, the (likely) new voice actor will be faithful to Young's interpretation.
I'm not holding out any hope for the reboot in general, but hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

If Disney is good at one thing, it's finding voice actors to always keep their characters sounding the same. I'm sure the same will apply here.

That is true. Time will tell, of course.

The Evil Within - FINALLY beat the dog/beast thing. Chalking it up to luck, heh. I'm some of of the way through Chapter 7 now, in the "catacombs". There's some crazy dude/monster with a safe for a head running around...
I think I'm getting a little bored of the game at this point. I think it's the lack of a story, and the fact that enemy patterns are incredibly predictable. The latter takes away a good chunk of the intended suspense and fear. I'm going to finish the game, though. My understanding is that I'm a bit more than halfway through it, so I may as well see it through. I'm still enjoying the experience, for the most part

Dragon's Dogma: DA - I know this game was not well received by this site, but I've heard good things from non-critics. So, I picked up a copy for like $15. I played through the prologue and some of the very beginning area. So far, I like it. It's not polished by any means, but it's fun in it's own right. The combat is quite solid.
I really like the character creation process. To me, it's a nice balance between selection and simplicity. The character models look really good, actually. Time will tell if this game's reputation for being overly repetitive will negatively affect my enjoyment.

The Evil Within - The dog thing that keeps hiding in the bushes and jumping out at you in Chapter 6 has earned my utter contempt. I have tried to beat the fucker at least 10-15 times at this point. It is infinitely irritating how quickly it has dispatched me on most of those attempts. It goes beyond yelling at the the TV. Straight to quiet rage.
It doesn't help that the player character moves with all of the flexibility of a cardboard cutout, and this thing is hopping all over the place like some sort of giant disgusting rabbit. Not really an even match... It's difficult to accurately unload the more powerful weapons into it, as they are slower all around, and that contrasts greatly with this nimble asshole.
I'll get 'im eventually, but it won't be pretty on either side of the TV.

Skyrim (PC) - Got my orc level 20. I'm still ultimately going for a tank/power puncher, but building up the necessary skills to make that happen takes some time. For now, I'm just working on the Companion quest set, and wandering around otherwise. This game is a total blast on the PC, for sure. Even without mods. Easy to get lost in.

Stretch - A fun dark comedy/action flick. About a down and out limo driver who takes on a job driving around a very eccentric rich-type person (Karos) in order to pay an important gambling debt. Unsurprisingly, crazy shit unfolds.
Sounds unoriginal, and the premise itself pretty much is. However, in my opinion, the execution is good here. The dialogue is witty, and the acting is good. Chris Pine shines as Karos, and Ed Helms is great in his (way too small) role. Jessica Alba is in it. The main character, 'Stretch' seems to be the least crazy of most of the people he runs into, and is relatable.
Also, Jessica Alba.
All in all, nothing groundbreaking, but still a pretty good time.

I don't think the heat ever really turned off last night... Just took REALLY quick breaks now and then.

Still, I'd take this over snowfall any day.

^ Were those motherboards of the same make? Curious, as your experience/knowledge could potentially save others from the same fate. Using the newest drivers is usually the best bet, but using older ones shouldn't straight up disable the system liked it did yours. At least, it's never happened in my experience. There's always a first.

Recently received the Fiio X1 music player I ordered. Seems pretty sweet. High quality all around. Sounds really great, actually. Supposedly it has a top notch music chip, or some such marketing crap. I'm mostly happy to now have something that can take 64 & 128 GB micro SD cards. Difficult to find quality music-dedicated players these days. Only a handful out there, really. Some of us don't want our music players to have 7" screens and be bloated with "apps".  I love and advocate the Clip (especially with Rockbox installed), but it only takes up to 32GB cards, and I eventually maxed that out.
I needed more!



MOOOOORE!!!

^ Personally, as far as social standing, my life is pretty much the same at the age of 34 as it was in High School: I don't bother other people, and they don't bother me. Don't have any enemies, but don't have any real friends, either - and I'm totally cool with that.
