Good wine and cheese works for me. I still find this very hard to believe. I wouldn't normally think that someone who is attempting to rob you would also enjoy some good wine. I'm thinking cheap beer and Kraft singles. Perhaps I'm just a bit of a snob.

I just got myself a 42" 1080p Sharp LCD. Dead Space looks freakin' amazing. I can't wait to see how a more colorful game(like the forthcoming Prince of Persia) will look. I am in Chapter 6.
Like Esper, I am happy that I can now read the damn text in this game. What a difference!

Dead Space - I am now in Chapter 5. After my whiny last post I tried a few more times to no avail.
Code:
I then finally decided to just shoot at the asteroids in the middle and ignore the ones outside the lines. I was able to do it after one try. As usual, my idiocy has no bounds. I am now being chased by some [i]thing[/i] that cannot die and trying to figure out how to get the damn door to unlock. I'm sure the solution is simple, but I keep getting mauled.
This game has scared me/caught me off guard on several occasions already. I really like to play in the dark with headphones on. You hear every single groan, creak and scamper. I can't turn the surround system up due to a sleeping wife and child.

Dead Space - Chapter 4. I am stuck at the
Code:
spot where you have to blast the asteroids/whatever that are flying at the ship. I've tried it something like 15 times and just can't do it. The stupid gun keeps overheating, and I suck at aiming at things without some type of lock on
I REALLY don't want to have to stop playing, as I am loving this game. This sucks.

I think we all care about graphics to a certain extent. Who wants a game to look like shit? Not me. I expect better, especially on next gen consoles.
This was one of the few Wii games I was looking forward to. Now it will be just another Wii game to ignore. Bummer.

I may take some flak for saying this, but I actually think the music is pretty atrocious. All I hear is bad 80s music.

!!! WHA?! WRONG.
I just listened to the entire Y's I & II soundtrack on Sat. and the music is still amazing. Is the music on the VC version the same as the OST? I wonder about the sound quality. Sure, a few tracks may sound a bit dated, but most of it is quality stuff.  I wish a single friggin game nowadays had music anywhere near as good as this.
Sorry, but I'm pretty sensitive about my game music.

As for what I'm playing. I'm in Chapter 2 of Dead Space. Cool game.

My amazing wife bought me a 360 and Dead Space for my Birthday!
I played a couple hours of dead space last night and am enjoying it so far.
Now I have to come up with a list of 360 games to get. Although I do want to play through Xeno III before getting into any rpgs.

Xenosaga III - probably best just to do it all in code:
Code:
I now have KOS-MOS. I highly doubt such a powerful "weapon" would just be tossed onto a junk pile, where it could bo so easily re-activated. You'd think they'd melt it down or something. Anyway...
I had a tough time with that Gnosis boss, but made it through with lots of healing. I am now in the process of rescuing the Elsa. I get to the robot thing now.
I'm very impressed with the database system. I also like the recap the game gives you when you start up. Good for people like me who don't play every day.
Very good game so far.

I saw Religulous Sat. night. "preaching to the choir" as it was, I definitely enjoyed it. Very funny throughout. Unfortunately, the people who should see this are the ones who won't go near it. Not that it would change any minds or anything. The massive amounts of editing that obviously took place was geared more for entertainment than persuasion.

What about the music? No way a DS can belt it out like the originals. I'm still interested in this, though. What was Y's Eternal released for anyway? If it never came to America why are you guys complaining? Is the game no good?

Slither - Well, THAT was entertaining. Not particularly scary. Not as humorous as I expected, either. But it was still a fun movie along the lines of Tremors. I am a fan of Nathan Fillion, so I was happy to see him in this. I am now also quite the fan of Elizabeth Banks. She's a might bit purty, ain't she?


Gonna go see Zack & Miri then?
From what I understand there is no nakedness in the movie. At least not of the Banks variety. I sure as hell don't need to see Rogens ass again. Ugh. The wife and I are fans of Kevin Smith movies, so we'll see it eventually. Probably not in the theater, though.

Xenosaga III - I am now in fifth Jerusalem. I like the music here.
Lots of confusing story scenes happened prior to this. I got to fight a mech battle which was quite cool and way better than I remember them from I. Marguiles voice is distracting because it sounds just like Van from Abyss. Same VA I assume.
I remain impressed so far.

Taken from Wiki:

Code:
Due to confusion over the film's ambiguity, in an interview, del Toro clarified that, in his own view, the fantasy world isn't only Ofelia's imagination; the Underground Realm does exist, and in the end, Ofelia does actually escape to the fantasy world (where she would be more happy to live in than the real world).

bah. What does the director know? moron. I'm with DR and Esper. Works better that way.

I saw some movie called Boy Eats Girl.

...

remove your mind from the gutter, please...

ok, thanks. It was basically another angsty kid  turns into a zombie while trying to score movie. More zombies show up,lots of people get eaten, all turns out well in the end. Amusing.

I've got Slither on the way. I've been wanting to see it for awhile.

Beat God of War 2. Enjoyed the game quite a bit, but am happy to move on to something else.
I bought the kid Lego Star Wars II for the DS. I played a little and it seems fun.
The Gamestop I go to also has a case of GB Advance games that I peruse. They had a copy of Shining Force : Rise of the Dark Dragon(or whatever the title is) for 7.99 so I picked it up. Haven't played the original SF in years.
Last night I decided to start up Xenosaga III. I am quite impressed so far. Graphics are nice and flashy(and sci-fi!) and everything just seems well-polished. The battles are so quick! I couldn't believe how fast that first battle loaded up. I think this is what I'll be playing now.
