I'm interested in trying out either the Shiren Mystery Dungeon or one of the Pokemon Mystery Dungeons.  Does anyone know: are these really different so there's no point in comparing Shiren and Pokemon? If they are similar, which one would be better pick for someone fairly new to dungeon crawlers?  (They both count as dungeon crawlers, right?)

Here's my review of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team (I gave it a 68%)

And my review of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness/Time (I gave it a 75%)

They might have some quick info that would help you decide.  Also, you know - it's a chance to pimp my work. ;)

The other night, Radioland Murders was on.  It started when I should have been going to sleep, but I stayed up and watched it anyway, because there's something irresistible about that movie to me.  It's not the best movie ever, but there's just so much about it that I like.

Been watching the first few episodes of Doctor Who season 5 (the new ones, that is), but I'm staying away from the Doctor Who thread - don't want spoilers. :)

Today, we bought and watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.  Pretty good stuff.  Might have to buy the soundtrack... and maybe Commentary! The Musical for good measure.

We also bought and watched Shutter Island.  We like Leo. :)  Wild stuff.  My wife's a lot less sure about what's true and what isn't at the end than I am, which is totally fine.  I think:

That yeah, Leo's really had a realization that he killed his wife.  But I think it's deliberately left gray whether he's lost it again after the breakthrough or has chosen to sort of commit suicide by pretending that he's lost it.

Green Mile
I don't really get sick of this movie.  What's there to say?  Touching and interesting story - and emotional when need be.  ...one thing that ALWAYS strikes me odd, but do you find the wardens of the green mile much too soft?  IMO, especially given the southern setting, especially given the times, and especially given their title; I don't find the movie is too realistic in terms of how generous and respectful they are to the death row inmates.  Nonetheless.  Love love.

I read the book before seeing the movie, and I seem to remember that they explain that by saying that both the guards and the prisoners knew that the prisoners were there to die.  That's pretty stressful, so they didn't give the prisoners crap unless they asked for it, and the prisoners knew it.

The Prestige
Came back to this one.  I love it.  I don't think I can get sick of the lore/setting of the film.  I love the victorian(?) setting amongst two rivaling magicians.  Of course, the film becomes a bit far-fetched; but I think Nolan re-wrote history in a clever way to make an engaging story.  And..c'mon... Tesla!  Fucken Bowie! xo - hottest old man ever.  C'mon guys, you must agree. ;P

Everybody <3s Bowie. :)  He's a cool guy.

Either way, that's a mighty cute photo. :)
1910  Media / The Soundroom / So... the site's podcast on: June 08, 2010, 11:07:21 AM
OK, I finally started listening to the site's first podcast episode, and as of now, I have one thing I must say: "scabies in a dorm?"  You are a comic genius, Rob. :D  I were a coffee drinker, you'd owe me a new keyboard right about now.

Has anyone else listened to the show? Thoughts?

Oh, I'm sure you say that to all the forums, Fei.

My 360 admittedly has been used more for Netflix than anything else. =/

That's like me and my PS3 - I almost only use it for watching movies.  But I've had some great fun when I did actually use it for gaming too.  (Uncharted 2, InFamous, Disgaea 3, etc.)

Just saw the book of eli, it was pretty cool, felt like fallout 3 - the movie sometimes lol.

That is EXACTLY the impression the trailers gave me.  I plan to watch it as soon as I can find it in a Redbox.

Saw a documentary tonight called "Best Worst Movie," about the cast of the movie Troll 2 when it became a surprisingly popular cult hit 20 years after it was filmed.  Troll 2 is one of those movies that has been called "worst movie ever," and still has a number of rabid fans.  It's currently playing at the Tower Theater in Salt Lake City, and since Troll 2 was filmed in Utah, some people from the cast still live here, and go to the showings of the documentary.  It was totally worth seeing, although I wish I had seen Troll 2...

http://bestworstmovie.com/ has a listing of where and when it's playing.

I realize that I'm hardly the norm, but I almost exclusively game on the go.  DS, PSP, iPod Touch... I play them all.  Although not usually at the same time.  I'll go in stretches where I just have just one, then another.  I've been focusing on iPhone OS games for the site lately, so I haven't been carting my DS or PSP anywhere, but I've got a PSP game coming up, so it'll be going back in the backpack. 

This reminds me, though - I need to get the cable to play it on the TV now that I have a TV that can use it!

Don't think I remembered to say that I saw Iron Man 2.  It was fun, and that's what I wanted it to be, so I'm happy. :)

Also, last weekend, bought Dogma and Dr. Strangelove.  Had seen the TV version of Dogma before, had never seen Strangelove.

Now I've watched Dr. Strangelove, and I am happy that I've finally found a Kubrick movie I like.  I've seen several others before now, but I've hated them all.

And I've seen the normal Dogma now, and I still like it, but it's crazy stuff.  Don't think I'd like other Kevin Smith movies, but I like this one.
1917  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 2010 is turning to be another "ouch from the wallet" year on: May 28, 2010, 11:59:37 AM
I already spent a few hundred dollars on eroge games this year so I'm afraid I am spent.

Hah!  Spent...

There are actually just two games I'm currently planning on for day 1 at home: Crackdown 2 and Fallout: New Vegas.  But I'm trying to save up for a PS3 slim that I can take with me when I travel.  That's what breaking my personal bank. :)

(I mostly play iPhone OS games for the site these days, and they're generally pretty cheap.)

From what I hear, it's not even as good as Mario Kart.
1919  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Solomon's Keep on: May 24, 2010, 04:22:50 PM
This isn't quite RPG enough to cover here on the site, but I've been freaking loving an iPhone OS game called Solomon's Keep lately.  Here's a video:


It's one of the 80 billion dual-stick shooters on the platform, but it's got a lot of RPG stuff in it.  Has anyone else tried it?
1920  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Fantasy Sucks on: May 22, 2010, 07:30:49 PM
I've just read the first one - The Color of Magic (or is it Colour?  Don't have it with me now.)  It was good stuff.  I have a few others, but I haven't done the research to know if I can read them or if I need to read some other books before the ones I have.
