That'd be very cool.  Hope he finishes it.  He seems to be one of the developers who is working hard to convince people that a game can be art.

If you want RPG recommendations, the folks here on the forums have already made a number of threads on that subject - check them out and I think you'll get all the answers you'd ever need and then some.

If you want non-RPG recommendations, drop me a line.  I love my PSP, and would be happy to point you toward some of the great stuff that's out there.

I've bought three PSPs now - one for my wife, one for me, and then a new one for me when the slims came out (I sold my old one - thanks again, Losfer - hope you've enjoyed it!).  Every time, I bought a bundle and been happy I did.  The price is usually very worth it if you're even kind of interested in the game, and the 1 gig memory stick is nice, too.  It lets you carry around demos or even full games (you can buy those from the PSN store now), or music, or videos, or whatever.  You don't absolutely have to have it if you don't plan to do any of that, but it's handy.

As far as the cables go, there are two kinds, both sold separately, and the distinction is important.  As you may know, the PSP has gone through three hardware iterations now, known as the PSP 1000, 2000, and 3000.  The 3000 just came to the US recently.  I assume any PSP you buy now is that one, but check before you buy, especially if this cable stuff is important to you!

On the PSP 2000:
The composite cables (that's yellow, white, red) will only play videos.
The component cables (that's red, blue, green, white, red) will play both videos and games.

On the PSP 3000:
Both cables will play everything.

Oh, and Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters is a great game.  Played it just recently and loved it.

Went to Inkheart yesterday and thought it was pretty good. Haven't read the book yet, but my wife had, and she thought it was pretty good as well.  Said it followed the major events from the book, but tended to arrive at them in different ways than the book did.

A&D reminded me greatly of Monty Python.

Though I only played the game because of the humor, the gameplay was horrid repetitive and unfair at times.

Hahah - cool - another person who played that game!  I think I felt about the same way as you.  Any game that has a shark gun comes out of the starting gate with a pretty good score from me, but the crazy guns and humor were the high points to balance out some of the frustrating gameplay bits.

Picked up Hot Shots Golf 2 on the PSP this week at the Virgin Megastore on Times Square because I read that they're closing in a few months.  It was marked $30, but only cost $10... so if you're in the area, you might want to check it out and see if there's something you want that's on secret clearance.  Been playing that way too much.

Also still playing Crisis Core on PSP and Marvel Ultimate Alliance on PS3.  And a little bit of Animal Crossing in my wife's town on Wii.
2047  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The irony is raping me on: January 21, 2009, 04:03:05 PM
You'd think it'd be too cold for you to be in the mood for rape.

In my experience, it's never too cold for rape.

Nothing warms the blood like forcing your penis into a hole...

It's jokes like these that remind me how I lost my faith in humanity.

And my question from the other "lolz @ rape" thread stands.  I'm with Dincrest, by the way - if somebody did that to your kid, the only way you'd forgive them is if you were a saint (the too good to be true kind) or... well, I can't imagine another circumstance.

No one was expecing "Alvin and the Chipmonks" to be good game...

Hee hee hee - I actually have a friend who was a developer on the game of the Alvin & the Chipmunks movie.  Poor sap.


Also, I'm starting to really think we need a board called The Drama Club.  Have I just been missing out on all of this before, or has the place gotten a lot more... confrontational lately?

Oh, forgot to say that Liev Schreiber (spelling?  too lazy to find out right now) did a really good job.  Looking forward to his Sabertooth.

Watched Defiance last night.  Thought it was pretty good.  I was surprised that the theater was totally full on a Monday night two weeks after the film came out.  Some folks seemed a little more enthusiastic about it than it really deserved, but mostly it was nice being in a responsive audience.
2051  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The Irony Is Raping Me II on: January 20, 2009, 09:02:44 AM
So here's my question: when did rape change from being one of the worst things you can do to someone to something that we casually joke about?
2052  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: January 19, 2009, 09:50:24 AM
The ending is SeSeven (because that's how it's really spelled when you write it as Se7en)...

Wouldn't it be SeSevenen?

;)
2053  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: January 17, 2009, 10:51:53 AM
Dark City - Worth it for the awesome visuals and atsmosphere alone.

Se7en - They made the ending out to be more epic than it really was. I thought it was decent, but overrated by lots of people.

Did you see the Director's Cut of Dark City?  That's the only version I've seen, and apparently the few little changes they made were totally worth it.  In the original, there's a bunch of narration over the beginning that gives away the whole movie.  In the Director's Cut, they took out the narration.

And you're not along about Se7en.  It was creepy, but it arguably doesn't even make sense.
Code:
The wife wasn't envious, so he shouldn't have killed HER for envy.  He should have committed suicide in some envious way after finding someone angry to kill with their own anger.

Having a tough time tearing myself away from the optional missions in Crisis Core to play the actual game. :D

Oh, and some jerk told me about Track Mania, and the free game's been taking over my life.  The formula is perfect - 30 second races with goal times that are just attainable enough.

If the press release is right, 800 points.
