I have officially moved into gaming overload.  Crisis Core on the PSP, Untold Legends on the PS3, both Burnout Paradise and Last Remnant (although LR is the back-burner game) on the 360, No More Heroes on the Wii, and I just found and picked up a copy of Dragon Quest VIII, which I've been meaning to play forEVER.  Before I got all of that, I was working on a new game plus playthrough of Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters... but I don't think I'm ever going to finish that.

...I can always stick forks into my eye and read the Wheel of Time again.

I've been thinking very hard about doing that too.  Er... reading the Wheel of Time books again, not the fork thing. :D  I know I'm going to need to before I read the final book, and it will supposedly be released late in 2009, so I'd probably better get started.

I recently read the last book in the City of Ember series, and it was really good.  In case you haven't read that series, I must say it's a quick, easy read (it's technically for teens), and books 1, 2, and 4 are great.  Book 3 is a crappy prequel that has nothing to do with the rest of the series, so feel free to skip it.

Started Crisis Core on the PSP last night, and am playing Untold Legends on the PS3.  It's fun being the cleanup crew. :D

My wife bought me a PS3, which was cool, because we planned to use any money we got as presents to buy one... so now I have Christmas money to spend on a game and such.

My in-laws (who I like) come over to our house every year, and most of the Christmas present action goes to my nephew, who's 5.  It's more fun to watch him open and play with stuff anyway. :D

Saw part of It's a Wonderful Life on TV and part of National Treasure 2 on Blu-Ray.  Otherwise, been watching TV shows on DVD: Simpsons, Fraggle Rock, and Dead Like Me.

This is weak.  Releasing old games with updated graphics is OK when it's been a few generations of consoles, like in the re-releases of old FF stuff.  The new FFT on PSP was outstanding, for example.  Stuff from that recent, though... it says "we don't have any ideas!"

You know, I've heard a lot of people say that about Hancock.  I totally didn't feel that way.  I understand why other people did, but I felt like the "twist" wasn't any crazier than having Jason Bateman's character being a totally forthright, honest, and nice PR guy.  No offense to anyone who is in PR (and I know there's at least one person here who is), but in my experience, that is not a job for nice, honest guys.

Then again, I have admittedly crappy taste in movies. :D

And they like to see how messed up they can make the swaps, like sending an atheist mom to a super-christian family and vice-versa.  It's always seemed like a horrible, horrible show to me.

Truly - I would recommend his books to anyone who likes sci-fi.  Most folks probably have no idea how many movies have been made from his writings.

Indeed it will, and it won't be pretty when it does.
2099  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Game Journal MXVII: Crisis Atelier Spectral Moon III on: December 15, 2008, 11:21:25 AM
Finally started up Last Remnant, and also Ratchet & Clank on the PSP.  Was an idiot and didn't save before the first real fight in Last Remnant like the game warned me to do, so I died from terminal screwing around.  Hooray for skippable cut-scenes!

Ratchet & Clank is fun.  I don't care when I die... it's just a fun diversion.  Nice change.

What the... in their bit about Fieldrunners, the iPhone "will soon be serious competition for the Nintendo DS and Sony's PSP."  Yeah, I don't think so.  It's going to sell games, but serious competition?  It's not the same kind of thing at all.  It's better than an N-Gage, but that's not really too much of a stretch.

Of course, I will say that I love Desktop Tower Defense (which I believe is the original version), which Fieldrunners appears to be a blatant copy of.
