Finished uncharted 2 on crushing. I never did that on the first game but considering how tough it was on hard it's probably harder than 2, I'll have to give it a try some day.
The first game was hard enough on the supposed "easy" mode! You people are nuts.

Anyway..

Muramasa is odd, but fun. I was expecting a full on action/rpg, not a game with staged battles. Still, it's been fun so far. The graphics are beautiful, if a bit repetitive.

HEY MESH! You don't check your PMs or what?

Played a bit more Mad World. made it to the cowboy boss at the end of area 2 and got my ass kicked.
Muramasa - What a beautiful game! Having fun with it so far. Making no sense of the story or characters, but that's not why I wanted to play this anyway.
My Wii is actually getting some action!

210.56 cups of iced tea.
I really don't consume much caffeine. Outside of iced tea, I'll drink a couple cups of coffee on the weekend. That's it. gave up pop awhile ago.

Ninja Assassin - This was totally fun. The movie is just a series of action set pieces with some boring stuff stuck in between. The story is NOT why I wanted to see this, and the filmmakers know that. Surprisingly bloody, too. I really enjoyed it.

That's damn good for chiptune music, anyway. I can't see myself actually listening to that outside of the game, though.

Block Buster online was selling new copies of Muramasa for $15 so I bought. Just showed up in the mail. Can't wait to play it.
I haven't touched FFXIII in a few days. oh well.

Metroid: other M - 1 week. Please be good.

Lawrence of Arabia - Movie dork that I am, I had never seen this until now. Damn, this thing was long. I watched it over two nights. It was quite epic, especially for a 60's movie. Beautifully filmed. I was(and remain) confused about Lawrence, though. Not at ALL was I was expecting. He's so....effeminate. Doesn't at all seem the leader type. Hard to believe all those Arabs would actually follow him. On the whole, I enjoyed the film, but it was far from perfect.

The Punisdher - hahahahahahahahahaha. It sucked

The Wolfman - rather boring. Nice to look at, though

Can I have friends even though I don't like boobs? I mean, there is nothing wrong with them. I've probably seem more irl boobs than most guys my age. As all my female friends seem to think it doesn't make me uncomfortable when they change in front of me.
Sounds like I want to be your friend, too! I'll bring my invisibility cloak. It'll be our secret.
Of course, the wife might wonder where I'm off to all the time. I'll just say I'm going fishing or camping or something like that. She'll totally buy it because I haven't done either of those things in over 20 years!

i liek boobs!

not to big, not to small, but just right.
I do, too!
We can be friends.

Yeah. Music tends to get talked about in the music forum. Whoda thunk it? lol. Just messing with ya.
I agree that the quality of the music can really have an effect on how much you like a game. bad music can bring a decent game down while great music can make an otherwise mediocre game into a better one.
I agree, for the most part about jrpgs having better music than Wrpgs. Mass Effect 1 & 2 are the rare exception.

Finished the third Temeraire book. To put it plainly, it sucked. I am SO done with this series. The writing is poor, the plotting is poor, and the author sucks at writing any type of action scene. To top it all off, the endings of all three books are anti-climactic and feel horribly rushed. It's like someone told her she had two pages to wrap up what should have taken 30 pages.
Time to start reading the Elric stories. I've been looking forward to this for awhile.

And there's plenty of straight guys who find a beautiful female bottom downright irresistible and would do supposedly "gay" things to it all night long. I'm just sayin'...

Finally decided to get into Final Fantasy XIII. I'm digging it so far, but a few things bug me. The writing is horrendous! How many friggin' times do we need to hear Snow referred to as "The Hero"? Didn't someone(ANYONE!) think to MAYBE change up the dialog a bit? I don't get it. Then there's the ridiculous duo of Hope and Vanille. God, they are annoying. And that weird accent of hers...just bizarre.
I like Lightning, and Sazh is a great character so far. All the silly story BS is going in one ear and out the other, and that's just fine with me.
The graphics and music are damn good. The battles are super fast, if a bit boring. I suppose this will be remedied later on.
Overall positive so far. We'll see where it goes.

Music can work within the game structure and not be boring as hell. Look at the Sonic games. Castlevania. Metroid. Games with great, listenable music that fits perfectly within the game. That's what I want. Not every game has to have nothing but environmental sounds in a desperate bid to be realistic. Sure, rustling leaves and gurgling brooks are great for setting a tone, but they're also boring if that's all you ever hear. I think these developers sometimes forget that they're making a 20 hour game, not a 2 hour movie. Music can make all the difference in the world.


Yeah but you don't really see games like those anymore do you? Like it or not games are a lot like movies these days, they are always trying to evoke some kind of emotion, there's always a ton of dialogue and cutscenes that require atmospheric music. You can't just write a catchy tune and a slap it on a level untill the player finishes it. The music has changed along with game design I guess.
I know. I know. They don't call me the Dark Lord of Nostalgia for nothing. Ok, no one actually calls me that. But they should, dammit!
*Puts on his Skeleton Warriors OST*

Guess I'll just enjoy the rare game that actually DOES have a decent soundtrack. I just started getting into FFXIII, and I quite like the music.
