I watched the first episode of House of Cards last night. Man, I can tell this is going to be GOOD. Spacey is great, of course, but who really impressed me is Robin Wright. She's awesome. Such a strong presence.

Have you played The Last of Us yet? Great fucking story, short game, and easy difficulty to make your playthrough an experience rather than an endeavor.
Of course! Great game, but not easy for me, even on the easiest difficulty. That was ok, though, as I don't mind a bit of a challenge every now and then.

Perhaps Deus Ex: Human Revolution too.
It's heavily story based and I assume it would be fairly easy on "Tell Me A Story" difficulty.
Isn't that a first person game? I love the premise, but never gave it much thought because I suck at first person anything games.

I think I sort of know what you mean, as I like those games a lot too. You could try out Journey, Shadow of the Colossus and Ico if you want something easy and don't mind artsy stuff.
I loved all three of those games!

I'll look into some of the other games mentioned. Thanks!

*tries to bring some order back into the post*
I've been digging games like To the Moon, Gone Home, Dear Esrher, Brothers, TWD series, Wolf Among Us, Beyond: Two Souls, etc.
Story-based games with little to no "difficulty" to make me not enjoy myself. I like easy games. I like short games. I like a great story. Some killer tunes help as well.
I'm sure I'm missing other games out there like the above.
I played 999, and still need to pick up Virtue's last Reward, so there's that, but I'm not sure what else should be on my radar.
Any help? Thanks!

Is Capaldi the best Doctor of the new series run?

Yes. Yes he is.
WAY too soon for such a statement.
The new Doctor is so much (and I hate this trendy word) "darker" than Matt Smith's. He's almost mean. Incredibly cynical. It's like everything that has come before is finally making it's way out. Capaldi IS doing a great job with him so far.
I did like Robot of Sherwood. Fun episode.

Finished up season 4 of Breaking Bad the other night.
season 4 just blows season 3 out of the water. It's just so freakin' ridiculous. In a good way, I suppose. Totally intense the last few episodes. I still have problems with some of the idiotic actions of Walt and Jesse.
And why did they feel the need to show what happened to Gus in the end? That was just silly.
I wonder where 5 will go after this? There's loose strings, certainly, but we've gotten some solid resolutions this season.

So, I'll take a couple week break before starting up season 5.

If you have cable, you should have it, since it's on FX.
Amazon (instant video) has it too.
I rarely watch TV as it's broadcast. Unless FX has it On Demand? Either that or I have to pay for it per episode.

Yodes, that's a cool site. Looks like Fargo is 1.99 per ep on itunes. I hate the idea of paying more for TV than what I already pay Comcast and Netflix. I'll wait and see on this one.
37  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: If I were to watch ONE comedy show... on: August 29, 2014, 10:28:15 AM
If comedy isn't your jam, check out True Detective. I just started it and it's my bag.
Been there, done that. GREAT show.

I want to watch FARGO, but it's not on anything I own.

Damn tv got complicated in the last 5 years.

When you talk about a show you have to ask "what's it on?"

Exactly. How do I watch it?

Grimey? So I'm gross now? Wouldn't it be Grimy, or Grimmy? ;-)

I haven't fit in much more comedy. I've watched 4 eps of Louie, which I'm still not sure I even like. Some of the bits are simply not funny (like the lady who wanted to have sex with an "old" guy. That was just weird). I haven't watched any more Arrested beyond the first two, but I do plan to.
I've been watching Breaking Bad Season 4 mostly.
I'm looking forward to finding a new drama after BB, as I'm kind of sick of it. I have plenty of options for that, so no thread for you!

For the first time, I watch the episode with both my wife and son. This was the first episode of Doctor Who my wife has ever seen. She was mostly just confused, for obvious reasons.
I found it just mostly odd. Capaldi was ok, but I look forward to his future episodes after he's figured himself out. Same thing for Clara, who was very un-Clara-like for most of the episode.
Any why the continual boyfriend references? Those two never had any romance. Flirted, maybe, but nothing more.
The story was pretty weak, but I know that wasn't the point of it. The new Doctor was.
Next week, Daleks? Really?! Friggin' Moffat.

I was off work yesterday due to my wife having knee surgery. She's stubborn, and hates asking for help, so the next 4-6 weeks should be fun.

My son started 8th grade on Monday. How the HELL did that happen? Makes me feel old.

Finished Ysabel by Guy Gavriel Kay - It wasn't as good as his previous books, which I highly recommend(Sarantium series and The Last Light of the Sun specifically), but I still liked it. The guy I borrowed it from likened it to Dan Brown books, and I would agree. Simple, fast-paced, history based(in this case, Provence, France), thrilling. The main protagonist is a 15 year old boy, so it feels like a youth fiction book, but I recommend to anyone looking for a fun, fast read.

I'm starting up Mistborn #2, but it feels a little weird considering how complete the first book felt. I'm really inter4ested to see where the story goes.

Captain Phillips - Great movie! As always with movies like this I wonder what is true, and what has been changed for the movie. Regardless, it was intense as hell, and Tom hanks was fantastic as always. Even had me tearing up in the end. he truly is one of our greatest actors.

The Grey - Why did I watch this? It was on a list of top 100 Netflix movies to see. I want my 2 hours back. It wasn't horrible, but it was totally predictable. And what's up with the giant man-eating direwolves? Alaska getting a bad rap here. It DID have more character and "meaning" than you would expect out of a movie like this. I'll give it that.

I posted this on FB this morning:
Aauugghh! It's driving me nuts. People trotting out the ridiculous "rule of three" now that Lauren Bacall has died a day after Robin Williams. I'm seeing it mentioned all over the place. Think for just a second about this supposed "rule". Where would it come from? Why would it happen? How would it even be possible? Things do not happen in threes. People do not die in threes. People die by the thousands every day! It's all just silly superstition, and humans trying to make sense of things they don't understand. Some days I truly do feel embarrassed for the human race.

I'm right smack in the middle of Breaking Bad Season 4. I'm kind of getting tired of Jesse's mental issues, and Walt doing something stupid just so the story can move along.
Like last night had Walt drink a bunch of wine, then stupidly give Hank the idea that Gale wasn't the real genius behind the product. I get a little bit that his stupid pride, and "battle" with Gale over who is smarter/better, might influence him a bit, but to make such a stupid statement? I assume Skyler will kill him in the next episode and that will be that.   
And Jesse's 3 day endless party? I understand what they are doing with him, but at this point it's overdone and annoying. He's pathetic. We get it.
The show is enjoyable on a surface level, but a little overrated. Maybe by the end of it all I'll change my mind, but I doubt it. I most certainly want to see how it all pans out.

You know what other numbers don't lie? The amount of money his movies make. Kind of sickens me that he's figured out if you make a movie out of a recognizable franchise/brand/name, it won't matter how good or bad it is, people will still go out and see it just out of curiosity.

I know, and I hate that it makes me so judgmental in regards to the general movie going public. I know that sounds weird, but I find myself looking down on people who enjoy godawful movies like what Bay directs/produces. Mostly because I LOVE movies, and want the great ones rewarded with more than just good reviews, and the bad ones penalized by more than just bad reviews.  When a shitty Transformers movie makes 3-400 million dollars all it does is tell Hollywood to make more movies like that. I like explosions and giant robots as much as the next guy/gal, but it NEEDS to be accompanied by a coherent story and characters I actually care about.

I watched The Divide the other night. That was a fucked up movie. Started out with a decent premise, then spiraled down into torture porn type stuff. Not cool.
