Saw 2 movies over the weekend

Igor - Talk about a let down. This looked as if it could have been fun and cool, but it was pretty much awful. so much potential squandered.

The Duchess - I kinda dig period movies like this, generally. Kiera was hot as always, although she still needs to spend more time at the buffet. Interesting story. Well done all around.

FWIW, my fave Pixar flick is The Incredibles. God, I love that movie. Wall-E up to when the first human speaks is #2.

I gave up on watching the Oscars years ago.
I really don't think DK deserves it, so I'm not bothered by its absence for best pic noms.
I'd like to see Kate get her statue, but that's only really because I have a thing for her.

This is just so stupid I decided to join in. It's actually quite difficult choosing from all the cheese.
I was trying to find a "darker" romance cover to go with my persona, but I guess people are not into reaper romance. *sigh*

Mass Effect - Looking at all the places to go on the galaxy map was overwhelming at first. Then I realized a lot of these places are not even accessible(at least not yet). I finished up Feros, did some other random planet thing, and am now trying to follow a story mission again. Something in the artemis tau cluster. Before playing I read a lot of complaints about the rover. It bugged me the first time I used it, but I'm getting used to it now and kinda like it. I want one of these in the real world.

I wasn't too bad off until I got a 360. Now I have PS2 and DS games just sitting there. In general I play one game at a time. That one game can take me literally months to play through. I wish I had somewhere to play the DS. When I'm at home I prefer to play console games. The poor DS gets ignored.
RPGs or otherwise:

PS2:
Xenosaga 3 ( I REALLY want to get back to this)

DS:
FFIV
Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
Rocket Slime
Phantom Hourglass(gave up due to it sucking)
Shining Force: ROTDD
-plus numerous games I still want to buy like all the castlevanias, and numerous other rpgs I've heard are good.

360:
Mass Effect(currently playing)
Lost Odyssey
Gears of War
-plus numerous games I still want to buy like Tales of Vesperia, Fable II, prince of persia, etc.

Plus I still want to get a PS3. MGS4, Valkyria, God of War3, among others, are my justification.

I suppose I'm cheating by adding in games not bought yet, but the pull is still there.

Playing Mass Effect. I've been on Feros solving misc. problems. I went through the Exo-geni building and am now heading back to Zhus Hope to deal with this Thorian thingamabob. I continue to like this game, despite it being the opposite of what I've always liked in rpgs. Maybe I was just ready for something different.
2452  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Game franchise on: January 26, 2009, 02:07:31 PM
MGS4 is really pulling at me to get a PS3. I won't even consider it until it gets down to $300 or lower, though.
If FFXIII wasn't coming out for the 360 I would buy the PS3 to get it, factoring in the above statement.

A new Skies or a new "real" Phantasy Star might be able to single-handedly convince me to buy a system.
I guess I'm just easy.

Back when I saw TDK in the theater I would have said that. But after seeing Iron Man, and watching TDK again on dvd, I realized I liked IM more. So thats my #1. TDK #2
Wall-E was great, but some of the latter scenes bring it down a notch. #3
I wish I saw more movies so I could have a proper list.

So it's internet dick wagging: just like I thought.
I'm jealous of you people who actually have time to care about such things. It's takes me forever to beat any given title, so there's no way I can spend more time worrying about achievements. If/when they happen along the normal course of a game I will squeal with joy. Otherwise, I won't bother.
My #1 achievement for any game is to beat it. Point of reference: I received the 360 and Dead Space for my birthday on October 27th. I just beat it a week or so ago with 21 hrs on the clock.
I can do without additional challenges, thank you.
2455  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: January 13, 2009, 02:08:28 PM
Ok, guys, answer me this.
What is the point behind achievements? Do you actually get anything out of it besides bragging rights? I play 360 games, and little notices pop up on the screen that I got ##points for doing whatever. I have made no efforts to get these points and never will. Unless I actually get something real out of it. Explain.

journal-wise: I do not have the mental capacity to play Braid. It is beyond me and I admit it. I would have to go through the whole thing with an FAQ, but then the whole point is lost. I have a hard time believing people are playing through this without help.

I'm slowly getting psyched for this. This new site helps. Love both tunes, especially the piano one.
I know it's odd, but I feel like I need to play this on a PS3(which I don't have yet, but probably will by the time this comes out). Final Fantasy on XBox just seems...odd.
2457  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: January 09, 2009, 12:28:02 PM
Damn, superflat beat Dead Space in 8.5 hrs? I think my clock was at 21. Then again, I am Captain Slow when it comes to games. I'll bet Keeper beat it in -2 hrs(no, the - is NOT a typo)
I actually liked the Line Gun the most. I just loved cutting things in half.

Still finding Mass Effect oddly compelling. I now have 2 more characters in my roster and am still hanging out on the big space port place, whatever its called(Presidium? I don't know)

Finally bought Braid last night. I had played the trial a few times, and decided I wanted to play the whole game. It's doing a damn fine job of making me feel stupid.
2458  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Have you ever cried or gotten emotional from an RPG? on: January 07, 2009, 04:40:33 PM
All this talk about Chrono Cross makes me realize I don't remember a damn thing about it. I recall feeling a shiver when during some important type scene somebody/something said "welcome back, Chrono Trigger"
I recall some dude named Miguel, too.

Anyway, stuff I actually DO remember:

the ending of Cosmic Fantasy 2.
Code:
The girl you worked so hard to save dies! Sad/melancholy stuff

Most recently, Tales of the Abyss. I really got attached to the characters, and some of the scenes(especially Lukes) towards the end really got to me.

While I am quite the emotional fellow, there really haven't been too many games that get to me the way a good book/movie will. Hell, even just a great song can get to me.

Beat Dead Space. I had a great time with it, cliches be damned.
I started up Mass Effect and am liking it more than I thought I would. Not so sure about the ultra-realistic looking faces, though.
I picked up Gears of War. Wow, is this game bad ass. I love the whole "cover" system. This game feels so immersive. Very cool.
I still need to get back to Xeno III. It's hard with all these 360 games to play.
2460  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Game Journal MXVII: Crisis Atelier Spectral Moon III on: December 31, 2008, 11:35:41 AM
ummm.....still playing Dead Space. I'm in chapter 10, with the clock at 16 hrs or so. I really dig this game, but hope to beat it soon so I can play something new.
I got mass Effect for Christmas. Played an hour of it and stopped to get back to DS. Looks interesting.
