Fallout 3: just got to the Anchorage War Memorial, and could see from the radar that there were enemies up top.  I snuck up the stairs until I could barely see them, and apparently they hadn't noticed me yet.  It was five raiders.  I used VATS to chuck a grenade at the closest one, and lo and behold, I killed them all with the same grenade.  It was the most awesome gaming moment I have had in a while. :D

Holy friggin crap - I would buy that in a heartbeat.  And I really don't buy XBLA stuff.

A lot of folks feel like the Dark Tower series didn't end so well, but it sure starts out great.  I love the Gunslinger.

Did you guys see that Steve Martin (the actor) recently released a new banjo album?  I understand it's all original stuff that he's written.  For the benefit of the uninitiated, Steve Martin is an awesome banjo player.

Are you revealing your secret identity?  That seems dangerous! :)

I finished my honors thesis and all that jazz today...

Congrats!  I finished my Pokemon Platinum review today... but that's not really on the same level.

I feel like we got onto the topic once a while ago, and everyone here said "meh - I don't care if people are straight or gay."  I was proud of us. :)

I did think the one mod mentioned in the article had a good point, though - a lot of places, calling something or someone "gay" has been a popular insult.  Mods have a tough job, because they have to find a place to draw the line between letting people express themselves freely and allowing behavior that's going to drive away their site's target audience.  Depending on the size of the board, it may not be feasible to police every post to see if someone said "you're gay" as a stupid insult or as part of a sentence that ends with "aren't you?  So you probably wouldn't want to go out with my sister who thinks you're totally hot."  It's a position I'm glad not to be in myself.  I wonder if there's any way to allow a term to be used, but have it send an email to a mod with the contents of the post where it appeared?  That way, you would be able to allow people to talk about it, but also get a heads up about potential problems.

Actually, Fei, my understanding is that her "clothes" are actually her hair (like Lady Godiva, not like a werewolf), and her hair is a part of her attacks, so as she does big things, she uses lots of hair and leaves herself with little to nothing covering her naughty bits.

On the Street Fighter subject - I listened to an interview with the guy who was in charge of balancing IV, and he said that a big part of the data they worked with had been learned via SF2 tournaments.  He also said that a pretty hefty percentage of people playing will never notice the tweaks - only the super-hardcore folks.

Watched Ghajini, the Indian remake of Memento.  I was ready for it to be over at least 20 minutes before it was.  I think it was the songs that killed me, or maybe it was that half of the movie was an action movie and the other half was a stupid mistaken identity romantic comedy.  (I hate mistaken identity stories, even by the best authors like Shakespeare.)  But still, glad I watched it to see how that translation worked out.

Wow.  WoW.  I can't imagine it either, but if that's fake, it's a pretty freaking professional job of fakery.  Kudos to them.

Didn't play it, but should have.
2068  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Katamari game coming to the PS3: Katamari Tribute on: April 27, 2009, 12:56:53 PM
Score - I love that series.
2069  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: LEGO Rock Band on: April 22, 2009, 06:39:10 PM
I've been thinking for a while now that they needed to branch out from just rock with this game - I love rock, but not everyone does (you know, like commies). ;)  This is a pretty silly way to do it, but I bet I'll buy it anyway.  I know I'm buying the Beatles version.

even a collection for the Wii would be great.

Wii, PC, DS... heck, they could put those games out on the freaking iPhone at this point - I bet it's at least as powerful as the PCs we were all using when we played that stuff.  And you know what?  I bet they'd sell a TON.
