Samsung's what I've got, too.  Got a nice one, but don't feel like digging up the details on which one.  Loving it.

I'm not usually a completionist, but I feel like I'm pretty close to finishing up the Crisis Core missions, and you know how it is when you're actually close to finishing something. :)

Got farther in Retro Game Challenge - playing around with Guardia Quest.

Here's a pretty cool article about Retro Game Challenge:

I'm sad to say that I'm as interested in seeing the super-long director's cut with the Black Freighter stuff as I am in seeing the one that's in theaters now.  (Had to put it off because my wife had a headache - this thing's gonna be crazy enough without one!)

Esper - just noticed your sig.  It's not a movie, but I've been watching a bunch of Fraggle Rock on DVD lately. :)  Also watching Torchwood, which is really heavy stuff for me.  As I write this, I'm watching an episode of the old Wonder Woman TV show.  Gotta love TV series on DVD.

Dang - I didn't realize Matt Hazard was out!  Gotta get it.  Wonder if there's a demo...

Picked up Retro Game Challenge yesterday.  Just lost the 15,000 point Rally King challenge by croaking with 10 points left to go. :P

I've been slogging through the missions in Crisis Core - anyone here actually finish them all?  I don't know if I care enough any more.

This is one of the legendary games on the NES.  It's one I've never played, but everyone's told me for so long that it was awesome that I really wonder if it will be when the remake comes out.  It'd be the same if they came out with Kid Icarus again.

Good old Planescape: Torment.

I made a huge purchase and finally got myself an HDTV (52" Sony), along with a PS3 that came with Uncharted and Guitar Hero for free. Can't wait to get it delivered -- I've never had the pleasure of playing video games on a huge HDTV. :D

Oh, sandy - you're gonna enjoy it.  I got a 52" around Christmas, and it is awesome.  Congrats and have fun with it!

You liked Mirrormask, eh?  I did too, although mostly for the visuals.  One of the only movies I've actually watched on DVD.  It's too visual not to.  You can't just listen to it - you'll miss out on a lot.

Just asking, not trying to raise a big stink.

np - no stink raised.  And hey, most of us also like games that aren't RPGs, too.  :)

Mass Effect - Played through Virmire
Code:
What the hell? Wrex goes bonkers and gets killed. Then I had to choose between Ashley and Kaiden? It happened so fast that I didn't realize I was picking who lives and who dies. I picked Ashley because I figured I was already there anyway. Then Shepard tells Kaiden to "die proud" or something and it registered. Now I'm pissed, and even a little sad.
I'm going to do a few more side quests then head off to Ilos

In regards to your coded situation:

Code:
The Wrex situation is considered to be an 'impossible' dialogue tree - there's no way to get out, unless you put sufficient skill in Charm or Intimidate.  I was able to bully Wrex into realizing that the living members of his race would just be pawns using intimidate.

I went the other route, and that worked too.  Can't remember the specifics of how it went down, but you actually get an achievement for pulling it off.

Ever since I learned the power of Quake, I've been working hard on finishing up all of the missions on Crisis Core.  This is gonna take a while. :P

According to our site's definition, the first one didn't, so I doubt the sequel will either.  According to my own personal definition, though, the first one was, and I don't know enough about this one to say. :D

Did you hear about the insanity they were considering in Oregon?  Putting GPS devices on all cars and charging gas taxes based on where you drove and at what time of day.  Taking a busy road at rush hour costs more in maintenance than taking a country road at midnight, so you'd pay more for taking the busy road.  The funding part sounds kind of logical, but how freaky would it be for the government to always know exactly where your car is? 

I'm sure they said "Oh, but we wouldn't monitor or use the data in real-time." 

But that would have changed to "Except for if a crime has been committed.  Hey, you'd want us to use it to find your car if it was stolen, right?" 

And people would have said "Oh, yeah, that's a good idea.  Do that."

And then it would have turned into "Well, you know how terrorists are, so we're just going to monitor them, too."

And before probably a year had passed, we'd be in the same illegal wiretapping situation we have been with the Feds, but with our cars instead of our phones. 

BTW, I'm not really some crazy "the gov'mint's gonna kill us all" guy - I'm just seeing disturbing trends these days in terms of what they want to do and what people are cool with, and then how the people get all surprised (but not very angry) when it snowballs into something way bigger than they thought it would.  As the now-famous Benjamin Franklin quote goes, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Don't part of federal taxes go toward maintaining interstate highways/freeways?

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.
