I have a pretty rotten cold so I've stayed in this weekend - but I picked up South Park and I am loving it.

Holy christ though, Al Gore is bloody annoying.

I actually thought it was pretty bad. The teaser promised us something that never really happened. I was expecting a creepy monster of the week episode, but we got something entirely not that
The story was all over the place, and made no sense.
There were a few good lines, and a few good moments, but the rest was just...ugh.
And I really wish the doctor would stop insulting Clara on her appearance! It's like a creepy old man trying to re-assure himself that he's not turned on by the hot young lady, when it's the exact opposite. It's mostly just mean, though, and serves no point in the story.
MaryAnns review explains pretty much how I saw this episode better than I can:

I thought it was trying to have its cake and eat it too. It was trying to be a scary monster of the week episode but also be deliberately vague and you're right, it just ended up not making sense.

I agree with most of your friend's critique, but this - "• Let’s talk about the unintended creepiness of having an episode revolve around the Doctor bluffing his way into a home for vulnerable children in the middle of the night." is reading too much into it.

As for Capaldi, he is the best doctor since the show came back in 2005.

I love when it's sometimes cheaper to import something from that States, shipping charges and all, than it is to buy an item on its own from Amazon.ca.

I've had more problems with Amazon flat out refusing to ship me stuff than I have had with any other company.

Want to buy a game in another region? Too bad.

Want to buy a game that the Canadian site doesn't have? Too bad.

Want to buy a game on the US site that's $20 cheaper? Too bad.

Amazon fucking sucks.

IIRC wasn't FF7 praised as one of the things that made the PSX as popular as it was?

Yep, for sure - but no one was saying the fate of the PS1 depended on it either.

I, for one, wouldn't complain about a Saga HD collection.  I tend to prefer TT's storytelling style in Gears and Saga (well, to be fair, only 1 was entirely TT's creation) over Blade.  Blade's characters also suffered due to lack of Soraya Saga.

I refuse to ever touch 2 again under any circumstance, though I'd replay the fuck out of 1 and 3.

The first disc isn't actually that bad. It's just the second disc where it starts to drag.

Amazon.ca just went up in my esteem from bad to weird.
Tons of things are only available on amazon.COM and .CA can be pretty bare on sometimes.

AND THEN http://www.amazon.ca/Monster-Musume-Vol-4-OKAYADO/dp/162692046X/

(and this was in the "People who bought Ar Nosurge also bought this" lol)
...
(man, volume 1-6 for 54.10$ ! What a steal)

Amazon.ca is horrendous.

It only took three and a half weeks, but I finally have internet at home. Man, Canada is such a third world country in some respects.

Is Capaldi the best Doctor of the new series run?

Yes. Yes he is.
23  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: September 10, 2014, 02:31:56 PM
At least they're doing a retail release.

If they did this kind of release with every game, everyone would be happy.

Resident Evil Revelations is the most satisfying RE game I've played since Code Veronica.

Yes, it's leaps and bounds better than RE4. I said it!
25  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: September 10, 2014, 02:26:35 PM
Goddamn internet companies suck in Canada.

To say the the entirety of console gaming rests with a single game is ridiculous hyperbole and nothing more.

I have been meaning to watch that for a while. I know it's a copycat, but I'm still curious to check it out.

If you wanted to wait until Xmas, you could get her this

Watching Raiders of the Lost Ark.

It's one movie I can watch endlessly. It's nearly flawless.

The PS2/Wii game is STIV, correct? How much connection is there between games in the series?
