Yeah, apparently after the events of the last movie (whatever they were), the Romulan empire pretty much fell apart, and he's a mighty ticked off dude.

Caught Push at the theater the other night.  With my low standards, it was a pretty fun show.  Some people felt like there were pretty big plot holes, but I didn't think it was that bad, and I didn't care anyway.  The only thing I really didn't like was that I felt they tried to make Dakota Fanning sexy, and that's just wrong.  She's 14, for heck's sake.  I did like her character, just not how they dressed her.

(Geez, I must be old.)

His stuff is hit and miss for me - some of it I really enjoy, some of it I don't.  I hope to like this movie, though.  I have found in my movie watching that I prefer to have my lower standards and find a lot of stuff entertaining rather than expect every movie to be amazing and then be disappointed 80% of the time.

Me too - if I can't buy physical stuff, I'm tied to an internet connection or at least a computer when I want to buy new stuff OR swap out games. 

Gaming on the go + being tied down = fail.  I just need to look at my Virtual Boy to be reminded of that.

Check it out - not me, but it's my new "collection" of amigurumi who sit on my desk.  Dr. Zoidberg, a "corporate zombie" (that's blood on his face - it's redder than my phone camera makes it look), and Cthulhu.  You can't see them well, but he has awesome little wings on his back.

I <3 Ron Paul btw. Call me a Paul-Tard and I will punch you in the gonads.

What about a Re-Ron? ;)

Spent the last week or so playing nothing but Blue Dragon Plus.  (Review to be posted shortly.)  Finished it, now trying to finish up the stuff I left behind in Crisis Core... before I break down and buy Retro Game Challenge.

Yeah, I think it's a case of "just see what happens if you try to get out of paying" thing.  I'll just go ahead and do it.  Legally required or not, I like that the government provides services for me, even if I don't always agree with them on what those services should be or how much money they should put into them.

Coraline in 3D.  Saw a commercial saying it was the last weekend for it (in 3D) and it sucked me in.  Thought it was pretty decent - definitely Gaiman-esque.  There were a bunch of visual elements that reminded me of Mirrormask.

I think that developers have been realizing over the last few years that some elements of RPGs have a lot broader appeal than they thought.  Mainly, the idea of building a character over the course of a game to a greater extent than just "now you have a shotgun." 

For example, I seem to remember that one of our own said his favorite RPG of the last year was NHL 2009, and although that game didn't fall into what we'd normally think of as the RPG genre, I could definitely understand what he meant based on the player customization available there.

I went and saw Coraline today. I was disappointed. The reviews had me believe it would be awesome, but it wasn't. I was bored out of my mind. I was looking at the time every few minutes.

Reminds me of when I saw the dark knight for the first time...

;)


Blasphemer!


j/k - I liked TDK, but didn't think it was the most amazing thing I've ever seen like so many did.

Up until I hit the part with the guns, I was thinking "meh, this is kind of interesting, but whatever."  But then, katanas!

I have that book, but didn't read it yet.  I started to read Imajica and got hundreds of pages in before I gave up on it because I hated it.  Will be interested to see if you post what you think about The Great and Secret Show.

If you haven't already, and can get your hands on a copy... and like reading... play Planescape: Torment.  In many encounters in that game, you can get way more experience by accomplishing the sometimes more difficult task of talking your way through a situation rather than fighting it out.

Had to drop in and say I didn't like Finding Nemo.  It was a depressing movie... and that's as much as I can remember.  I seem to have disliked it enough that I blocked out most of the details.


And I saw Appaloosa last night.  Not bad, but not amazing either.  Mostly, I wasn't sure if I liked the ending or not.
