Finally saw X-Men: The Last Stand. Wow, that pretty much sucked. The writing alone was abysmal. So many contrived situations(Ice man vs. Fire man!). Plus a total lack of caring or emotion when there should have been a LOT, considering what happens. Ugh.

No.
*supposed to be a pic of Kain here*


God, I love(d) those games. Kain and Raziel are just so damn cool and well done. The end of Defiance...the last confrontation between the two....wow.

These two fall under both antagonist and protagonist, so I'm covered with them.

to add a few more:
pros:
I'm a big fan of Luke from Tales of the Abyss.
Cecil from FFIV - original SNES version

Ants:
I'm totally with DC in regards to Dark Force. No development whatsoever, and yet so memorable. To this day, when I see a nasty storm on the horizon, I think of Dark Force.

edit: wheres the pic of Kain? whatever

I refuse to believe that this is SoA related. I will NOT get my hopes up only to have them dashed. I'm sure it's some stupid game that I will have no interest is. hmph.

Slumdog Millionaire - It was alright I guess. A little more "gritty" than I was expecting, especially the first third or so in the slums.
Code:
I would have liked the end better if he hadn't won, but I understand why he did from a "fairy tale" perspective.
I was not impressed by the grown up Latikas acting, but everyone else was good. They needed to give us a bit more background on Salim, too, but it wasn't his story so I understand the lack thereof.
Not sure I'd call it best picture worthy.

started up DMC4. Damn this thing is over the top. I like it, though.

DLed the trial for 'Splosion Man. Had a grand fun time playing through the first few levels. I think I'll be picking this up. Feels like an old school Gen platformer, but with the obvious enhancements.

The wife and I watched The Reader. Very much an overrated movie, I'd say. We get to see a lot of naked Kate, but for some reason it wasn't working for me. Probably because she was naked along side a freakin' 15 year old boy. Lucky bastard.
Anyway, the story just seemed to drag on, without any real emotional kick. It wasn't a bad movie. Just...slow.

So I "finished" Fable 2 last night:
Code:
What the hell was that? You didn't even have to fight Lucien in the end. I know they were going for something different, but...
It all happens too fast after getting reaver. The game just rushes to the confrontation with Lucien, and then there really isn't one!
Of course, the game doesn't really end. I suppose I could keep on trekking around doing side quests and shooting gargoyles, but the motivation is gone

The game WAS fun overall. It was still missing something, though. Definitely a 8/10 type of game, strictly for the adventuring. Story and characters would get half that.
Maybe if I had turned the safety off and started shooting all those idiots asking for a ring...

Ha Ha, religion.
Is that seriously all you people have these days?
Oh come on, man. I was just goofing. I'm pretty sure Losfer was doing the same. Most of "us people" are quite indifferent to the whole thing.

That intro was awesome. The desperation is hilarious.

Ha Ha, religion.

Came back from vacation, loaded up Fable 2, and the game handed me almost 100,000. Sweet! It is WAY too easy to get rich in this game.
I continue to screw around with side quests, having just finished putting Lady Grey back together.
I think I'll do whatever Reaver asked of me next. I need to move on.
Plus, I'm ready to be playing something else.

While I enjoyed it for the most part, I was let down too.
The omissions/changes are really bothering me.
Code:
The ending in particular. The movie completely took away the emotional punch it had in the book. I was picturing a much more "epic" scene. The battle/scuffle happening in the background while the Snape/Dumbledore scene takes place. It was just so blah.
Some of the more interesting "memories" were omitted, especially the one(2?) with snape.
Then the delivery of the "I'm the half-blood prince" line fell flat, too. The movie never even indicated that Snape was aware of Harry possessing the book.
Still...The cast was great, as always. Slughorn was perfect, and all the principals did very well.
take out the stupid quidditch and excessive Lavender scenes, and add in more of the essentials from the book, and I might have been happier.
But that ending...ugh.

alright, so I'm actually starting to get burnt out on Fable II. I'm enjoying it still, but am starting get annoyed at the more obvious flaws. I'm tired of every friggin woman asking for a wedding ring for starters. Didn't someone play test this thing? I don't like going into towns because I'm constantly harassed. Maybe if I had gone more evil?
I'm really starting to rake in the cash, too.  I don't understand why they made it add up when your not playing. Makes it too easy to get rich.
I suppose I could stop screwing around with all the side quests and actually follow the story line, huh?
2353  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How is Fable 2? on: July 13, 2009, 01:50:56 PM
There you go Grim, no more excuses not to play FO3!
I was just reading some reviews, and no one says anything about a 3rd person perspective. Its' all FPS this and FPS that. One review did mention it, saying it was clunky or something and only for Fallout 1 and 2 fans(I take it the first 2 were not first person?)
The ONLY game I was ever able to tolerate in 1st person was MP, and I still totally sucked at those.
I'll try FO3 when it drops to 20-30$.
Sorry for the thread-jack.
2354  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How is Fable 2? on: July 13, 2009, 01:12:12 PM
Mas, FO3 may be a better game, but I will never play it simply due to the perspective. I'm sure I'm not alone in my disdain.

Fallout 3 plays in both first-person and third-person, so I'm not sure what the issue is here. Unlike Oblivion third-person mode is actually playable since there's a crosshair and your character isn't placed exactly in the centre of the screen.
I was under the impression that the whole game was in 1st person. So fighting is done in 3rd person? full movement and everything? regardless, the only first person I like in a game is when you can look around with the camera to see your surroundings.
2355  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How is Fable 2? on: July 13, 2009, 09:04:10 AM
I am playing it right now. I'm finding it quite enjoyable really. I think the battle system is great. I love how you can seamlessly go from using your sword, to shooting a crossbow, to casting a spell. Very exciting stuff.
The world is beautiful to look and fun to explore. I look all over for treasure and gargoyles to shoot.
The main story is mostly blah, but most of the game seems to happen outside of it.
I suppose it could be considered easy, but I prefer easy games, so that works for me.
Mas, FO3 may be a better game, but I will never play it simply due to the perspective. I'm sure I'm not alone in my disdain.
