Kick ass about ME3. Sadly, these are the only games I get genuinely excited about anymore.
I still need to get some of the DLC for ME2.
They NEED to find a new way to do the whole mineral finding thing. Personally, I actually liked the stupid Mako more than the planet scanning of 2.
They need to just integrate it into the regular areas, and not have it be a separate thing.

I'm a bit pickier than some of you, but it's still looking pretty solid for 2011.
The biggies for me are:
Dead Space 2
The Last Guardian
Uncharted 3

Plus, there will always be those games that you didn't know or expect to be great.
Heck, I'm still trying to play catch up on the great games of 2009 and 10.

I have almost always preferred "dark" and more serious stories with a little bit of lightheartedness thrown in to break up the tension. Too bad this type is pretty much non-existent nowadays.
I think of the lunar games as an example. Great writing, humor, world ending scenario, etc.
The only games I've played in the past couple years that count are not jrpgs. The ME games, and maybe Dragon Age.
Abyss was good, but still had a lot of cheese.
Nier feels like it may qualify.

Some of us barely have time for a first play through, let alone a second. I guarantee you, no matter how much I like it, a second play through will not happen. A game should be great the first time around.
I've only played for a few hours myself. Graphics are weak, music is great(as expected), battle system is clunky, and the story is intriguing. We'll see.

Yeah, she was pretty good in Adventureland. Heck, I find her pretty attractive, actually. But truth be told, I've always preferred the dark hair/pale skin look.

My wife is getting me 2 for Christmas. I enjoyed the first one, but definitely had a few issues with it. My excitement for 3 will depend upon my experience with 2.

I get to watch the new twilight movie tomorrow.

I watched it on Saturday with my wife, who redboxed it because she knows I won't put Twilight movies in my queue.
It's actually not as bad as the first two. Still not very good, but at least this one has a sense of humor about itself.
I've heard some interesting things about the last book, so I'm actually kinda looking forward to seeing if they can somehow make it NOT ridiculous.

Beat NieR. The further in the more rapid the gut punches got.

Is this a good or a bad thing?
2034  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: December 07, 2010, 09:34:45 AM
Nier showed up yesterday, so I started playing that. Man, after playing Castlevania, Nier is one UGLY game. OK, the graphics aren't THAT bad, but they are very PS2ish looking.
This starts out very generic jrpg. Minus the father/daughter stuff. Actually, it's more like the beginning of a Zelda game. Killed some sheep for a shopkeeper. Mmm, mutton!
We'll see where this goes...
2035  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Forget everything you knew about Tomb Raider! on: December 07, 2010, 09:07:00 AM
This actually has peaked my interest. I remember playing through the first one and a little bit of the second. Haven't played a TR game since then. I like the new look of Lara, and the overall feel. We'll see.

I was in the same snow that Yoda was. Got ourselves a good 4 inches or so.
Here's a pic of my garden from Saturday morning:

I actually went to the home and garden show last year and was far from impressed.

Do you mean the one in 09 or just the one this past spring? I largely just go there because the C&S society is selling stuff and they have a lot of fairly hard to find things at really low prices.
Yeah, I phrased that wrong. I meant this past spring. Everything was sponsored by Belgard. Good company with a good product, but I would have liked to have seen more diversity. Because of my job I have to care just as much about paving and wall products, as I do about plants. Or at least pretend to.
That's what Mid Am is for.

Da Mayor did a great job of beautifying the city.
Yes, we give him much credit. His green initiatives have given a lot of companies a lot of work, too. I have a feeling this will diminish when a new mayor takes control.

Our company specializes in seasonal floral displays. Visit Chicago any time of the year, and you'll see a lot of our work, including portions of Michigan Ave. There's always extra, so I get free flowers each season. Trust me, this can be expensive, so it's a nice little perk.

The fact that you're related to this raises you to celebrity status in my eyes ;________; And do they ever do anything at the St. Patrick's weekend home and garden show at Navy Pier..?

No, we rarely participate in those shows due to the whole cost vs. return thing not working in our favor. I actually went to the home and garden show last year and was far from impressed. Then again, the show is targeted at homeowners, not those actually IN the trade.
I do always attend the Mid-Am trade show, which is a place for vendors to try and convince guys like me to use their products. Always fun.

Seems to be the same ones over and over.
Love, Actually is very good, but I don't include it in my Christmas movie list.
Should be two lists.
Movies that are actually about Christmas.
Movies that happen to take place at Christmastime but are not actually about it.
A Christmas Story - duh
It's a Wonderful Life - Decent movie, but a bit too long. My wife likes it, so we watch it every year.
Christmas Vacation - duh. Although, my enjoyment has dulled over the years.
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas - the REAL one
Santa Claus is Coming to Town - Man, that redhead. Ms. Claus, that is.

Show that I can't stand:
Frosty - I want to blast him with a flamethrower every time he says "Happy Birthday!"

I need to give How to Train Your Dragon a shot I guess. I didn't care for how the characters looked but I've heard a lot of good mentions from friends and posters here.

And, Grim, no Gino's East? :)
I thought the same thing about HTTYD at first. All the positive reviews convinced me to go with my son. I ended up loving it.

Oh, I definitely love me some Gino's. Also a big fan of Lou Malnati's.
Damn, I want some freakin' pizza now.
