In the case of Fallout 3, the only DLC I plan to get is the thing that lets you continue after the ending.  The other stuff looks like it's good, but I think the game itself has enough content to keep me busy for a long, long time.  I've been playing for a few weekends now as a good guy and haven't really even scratched the surface.

Bolt - I actually kinda liked this. Disney CG has improved tremendously. Plus, none of the characters were stupidly annoying, like in most movies aimed at children. There was even a few unexpectedly "sweet" moments.

I'm glad you liked it.  I've mentioned before that the voice of the hamster was done by a very good friend of mine, so although I liked it quite a bit, I think I was kind of biased.  I wondered what people without that bias thought of it. :)

Nope - always saw people selling stuff, but never bought anything myself.  Of course, I was never involved in online play, and I'm pretty sure that made a difference in how I played.

Don't think I've bragged in this thread yet, so now I will. ;)  I married a girl who likes games.  I don't know if I'd call her a "gamer" or not, but she has bought me two consoles thus far, and she's the one who hunted down a website that still had Wiis for preorder, which got us one on release day.  She's got a PSP and is on her second (or is it third) DS... so she definitely plays games.  It's just a sort of side hobby for her, though, whereas it's my main hobby (yay for time sitting on planes!).

Dincrest - awesome songs X 2.  I thought that same blog posted the song "Marvin, I love you," but a quick search returned too many results to bother looking through.  (Marvin, of course, being the robot from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.)

And yeah, Shirley Manson. :) Then or now, awesome.
2061  Media / Miscellaneous Games / The Top 9 Video Game OCD Moments You Know You’re Guilty Of on: March 31, 2009, 01:43:58 PM
I read this list today and had to laugh.  I am totally guilty of probably 2/3 of these.

http://the-minusworld.com/2009/03/30/the-top-9-video-game-ocd-moments-you-know-youre-guilty-of/

The only way I've staved off the Fallout 3 moment is by keeping up a browser window pointing to a Fallout wiki that tells me "that's only good as Rock-It Launcher ammo" or "you use that to build the such-and-such."

On the other hand, I'm totally the opposite when it comes to ammo in FPS games - I hoard it.  Don't want to pick up a clip unless I need the whole dang thing.  (This partially explains why I can't stand survival horror games.  Those + hoarding stuff = does not work.)

Saw "Much Ado About Nothing" (with Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson) and "Little Princess" on Friday night. The former was good, melodramatic Shakespeare fun. The latter was okay. Something I might've liked when I was much, much younger.

I'm a big fan of that movie of Much Ado.  Many great jobs in that show.  Branagh, Thompson, Denzel, Keaton, blah, blah, blah.  We'll just pretend Keanu wasn't in it, though, right?

I'm a sad panda today, because I played Fallout 3 as much as I could this weekend, and now I won't get to play for about a month because I'm going out of the country and can't take my 360 with me.

On the other hand, I picked up my copy of Pokemon Pearl recently to see where I was at, did some grinding, and beat the Elite Four and the champ yesterday night, so that was nice.

You just reminded me of this Pink song (which I really like):

Stupid Girls

I should mention - there's some faux nudity in that video for a few seconds.

Fallout 3 (maybe?)

Fallout 3 definitely.  They've come right out and said that the DLC (including the pack that changes the ending) won't be released on the PS3.

I have both, and frankly, I haven't been very happy with either one as a gaming platform.  I have liked the 360 better for gaming, because of:
- selection - keep in mind that I don't just play RPGs
- better performance overall - if one version of a game has framerate issues, you can bet your bottom dollar it'll be the PS3 version
- support for DLC and other bonus content


However, I love how nice my PS3 makes movies look, Blu-Ray or not.  If I played games online, I imagine I'd like the fact that they don't charge for online play, but I don't, so I don't care.

No, you're not the only one - in the other thread discussing the BRPGotLG award, I am pretty sure there were a few people who said they didn't care for it.  On the other hand, there were people wrote in to say it was brilliant.  It's one of those games that some people like and some don't.  I bought it recently, but haven't played it yet, so I don't have an opinion.

(PS - no one calls it the BRPGotLG award - I just thought that'd be funny.)
2067  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: KH Chess Set! on: March 27, 2009, 12:25:41 PM
That is extremely awesome... but I don't see how you would know which piece is which.  There seem like more different pieces than you need.  Or, wait.  Am I taking the chess thing too literally here?  Are they just intended to be cool little display pieces?  Because they are that.

Reading a YA book called "How to Disappear Completely and Never be Found."  Not too far in, but I really like some of the writing.  My wife recommended it to me, and I think she was right to do so.
2069  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: March 25, 2009, 07:53:06 AM
Finished up my time with Phantasy Star Portable and moved on... to Pokemon for some reason.  Must be that the commercials for the new version made me remember I never quite beat the last one.  Grinding my main team up to the levels required to beat the final... the elite... wow, it really has been a long time.  I can't come up with the name for those guys off the top of my head, but you know who I mean: the trainers that you play all in a row and you have to be at least in the 50s to beat very easily.
2070  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Periodic Table of Video Game Characters on: March 25, 2009, 07:48:12 AM
I'm gonna guess they've been in some video game or other at some point.  Just off the top of my head, Mr. Krabs was probably in the Spongebob Squarepants edition of Drawn to Life, if nothing else.
