Picked up the Oblivion/BioShock bundle thingy ($40 for both games is a great deal if you don't have either one yet!) and started playing BioShock.  I think I'm gonna like this. :)

I stink at those games. :(

Psycho- Pretty good stuff. I didn't find it all too scary, but it was a good mystery thriller. It's contribution to the genre is huge.

It's amazing to see that now and think about the differences between horror movies then and now.  It was so genuinely scary that a LOT of people said they couldn't take showers any more after watching it.  The thing is that since it was so successful, the good parts have been copied a million times since then, so it's all old hat if you're watching it now for the first time.  Like you said, its contribution to the genre was huge.

Oddly enough, this new version makes me MORE likely to play it.  Haven't played it before, have a PSP with me pretty much all the time...  I just hope that despite the changes, it's a great game.

Well, neither of you are alone.  I'm in the "both were fun" camp.  Plenty of folks liked them both, and plenty of folks didn't.  The first had an average score of 85/100, the second an average of 89/100.

The man is the very definition of the word huckster.

Huckster?  Nah - a huckster knows good and well that he's selling the public snake oil.  Molyneux honestly believes his games will deliver what he promises and that they'll be awesome.  He's idealistic, gullible, and too open about things that he should wait to disclose, but not a huckster.

Been playing KotoR 1 and 2 (1 on PC, 2 on 360) and Dungeon Explorers on PSP, along with quite a bit of Hot Shots golf on the PSP.  Finished up Dungeon Explorers and will be posting a review soon.

I have to say, from the beginning of the new stuff, I wondered how long it'd take before they brought the Time Lords back.  I mean, they already brought back the others who supposedly got destroyed in the time war...

Haven't seen the show too much, but the whole Robin Sparkles thing cracks me up.  And just to save you the miniscule effort of searching:

The Ring. Piece of crap that makes no sense at all. I want my 2 hours back.

I'm totally telling my wife you felt that way - she hates that movie for the same reasons, and up until now, I think I'm the only one who's agreed with her.  So many people think that movie's super awesome.  We just don't get it.

In other words, I'm quite happy now. Life's good.

And honestly, what more can a person ask for.  Good for you man, I hope this trend continues for you.

Agreed.  I love a happy ending, even if it's just to this particular chapter of your life.  Also, glad you know that some people aren't going to believe the way you do, and pretty much don't care.  Everybody's gotta find their own way through this crazy world. :)  (Although I'm willing to go on the record as saying that I'm a believer, too, even if I'm not really a churchgoing guy these days.)

MGF... do you live in Utah? ;)

Man - I'm getting survivor's guilt here.  Things are actually going pretty good for me, and while I wouldn't wish for the stuff others have posted about here to happen to me, I at least hope things get better for you guys.

Here's a song about schadenfreude... hopefully it'll be a funny few minutes.  It's from the musical Avenue Q, and the two people singing are a puppet guy who clearly represents Ernie from Sesame Street, who's newly homeless, and an actress playing Gary Coleman.  (BTW, there's some potty language in there.)

Tried replaying KOTOR as a dark side character, but I'm too much of a wimp to get very far, I end up feeling guilty for picking all the evil options.

Don't feel too bad - you're not alone.  It's tough for me to play as evil, too.  I managed in that game, though, so I could use those sweet, sweet dark side powers. >:D

I hate to say it, but a movie of inFamous doesn't actually seem like a terrible idea to me.  Of course, the question is: would they leave the twist ending the same?  The other issue would be the same as it is in every superhero movie - how do you get in an origin story and a decent everything else in 2 hours?
