Picked up Torchlight - it's still $10, but it's irresistible to me at even that price.

I tried starting Marvel Ultimate Alliance on the PSP and couldn't get into it.

I actually had a problem getting into it at the very start as well, but once I got farther in and was able to take better advantage of the free, instant respecs, I liked it a lot more. :)

[Yeah, Labyrinth just has David Bowie wearing pants that are way too tight. 

Pants, magic pants. ;)

See Brazil. Now. :)

Oh, I forgot to say I bought that and watched it!  I got the two Criterion Collection DVDs: "The Final Cut," which is apparently the Gilliam-approved version, and the "Love Conquers All" version, which is apparently the one that's been shown on TV.  Have only watched the Gilliam version so far.

I've seen Time Bandits a number of times, but on VHS.  Keeping my eye out for a copy of it on DVD, but haven't come across one, and don't care to look online yet.

I'm pretty sure the wife got me Dragon Age for Christmas, so it's going to be a battle over what to play.

I think I'm in that same boat, except the "other game" I'm already playing is DQ8. :)  Only problem is that she said we weren't getting each other anything... just putting money toward some things we each bought recently.  And being a sucker who thought he knew her, I believed her.  Feel like I'd better find a present for her now, and I'm feeling clueless.

I'll simply say that his continual returns make a slight more sense to me now. I feel that, were I little other than a lonely divorced man with a high-paying, low-hour job and an empty house...

Vallenon is Bill Dauterive?

Watched Labyrinth last night with my wife, her brother, and his 7-year-old kid.  When we said "let's watch this," my brother in law said "Labyrinth?  Is that really a kids' movie?"  We were like "yeah, of course it is!"  And he said "isn't this the one with the eyeball hand guy?"

Turns out he was thinking of Pan's Labyrinth.  Big difference. :D

Not related again but my country made their very first video game recently (Philippines). :P

It's called Circus Games for the Wii. It was shit and totally unknown.

India made their first recently too - Hanuman, for the PS2.  It is also crap and totally unknown (outside of India, at least). :)

Your cat is made of other cats?

Muahahahaha!  Yes!

Nah, it's from a British show called Red Dwarf.  (The "Holly" the captain speaks of is the ship's computer.  And at the end of the clip when he says "choose," Lister chooses stasis.)

The important point is this: our staff does everything we can, but we're all volunteers, and our ability to cover games that have only been released in Japan is limited.  If we don't cover something, it's not because we don't care or because we think it's less important than something else we have covered - it's because we don't have the bandwidth.  If you are in Japan and can offer us some help in covering this kind of big-name stuff, drop us a line and a writing sample.  We'd love to expand what we can do.

I can't believe I forgot this - I'm also finally started playing Dragon Quest VIII.  It's been sitting there waiting to be played for SO long, and I finally ran into some time where I'm home for a while and don't have any new games I'm in the middle of.  Liking it so far, except for one thing: I have to get to town to save.  I am offended when games hold me hostage - they should all have SOME way to say "hey, I need to turn this thing off for a while, but I don't want to lose my progress."  I have absolutely no problem with quicksaves that get deleted when you continue - that'd take care of my complaint here.

My cat's name is Frankenstein.  And yay for anyone who knows why that name totally makes sense. :)

Playing too many games right now, all on my iPod Touch.

Chronicles of Inotia 2 (an original RPG)
Driver (a port of a PS1 game that actually seems to look better on the iPod)
N.O.V.A. (a surprisingly impressive Halo clone)

Alternately, you can get the front claws removed.  It's really not much different from spaying them.

I think you'd find the same strength of disagreement on the subject of declawing cats.  According to a few different sites I found with a 2-second Google search, the following is a list of countries where declawing cats is either illegal or not normally performed because it's considered "extremely inhumane."

England
Scotland
Wales
Italy
France
Germany
Bosnia    
Austria
Switzerland
Norway
Sweden
Netherlands
Northern Ireland    
Ireland
Denmark
Finland
Slovenia
Portugal
Belgium    
Brazil
Australia
New Zealand
Yugoslavia
Malta
Israel

Cats wreak havoc and don't give a shit about what you think :P

Not all cats!  My cat's nice and doesn't do... very many... bad things.  But it's true what they say: if you tell a dog "don't do that," he'll interpret it as "don't do that ever."  If you tell a cat "don't do that," she'll interpret it as "don't do that where I can see you." :D  But I still love my kitty more than I ever did the dogs I had as a kid.
