Watched Defiance last night.  Thought it was pretty good.  I was surprised that the theater was totally full on a Monday night two weeks after the film came out.  Some folks seemed a little more enthusiastic about it than it really deserved, but mostly it was nice being in a responsive audience.

So here's my question: when did rape change from being one of the worst things you can do to someone to something that we casually joke about?

The ending is SeSeven (because that's how it's really spelled when you write it as Se7en)...

Wouldn't it be SeSevenen?

Dark City - Worth it for the awesome visuals and atsmosphere alone.

Se7en - They made the ending out to be more epic than it really was. I thought it was decent, but overrated by lots of people.

Did you see the Director's Cut of Dark City?  That's the only version I've seen, and apparently the few little changes they made were totally worth it.  In the original, there's a bunch of narration over the beginning that gives away the whole movie.  In the Director's Cut, they took out the narration.

And you're not along about Se7en.  It was creepy, but it arguably doesn't even make sense.
The wife wasn't envious, so he shouldn't have killed HER for envy.  He should have committed suicide in some envious way after finding someone angry to kill with their own anger.

Having a tough time tearing myself away from the optional missions in Crisis Core to play the actual game. :D

Oh, and some jerk told me about Track Mania, and the free game's been taking over my life.  The formula is perfect - 30 second races with goal times that are just attainable enough.

If the press release is right, 800 points.

It's just the ones that you start.

No, it will be the year of Dreamcast 2. 9/9/09, motherfuckers!

Haha!  I just got a new TV, and the Dreamcast is one of the things that got plugged into it.  Big screen Crazy Taxi FTW in my book.

Criminally Ridiculous, Asinine, Pathetic Freestyle Exercise in Stealing Time

And have I ever said anything to y'all about games like the now defunct Acrophobia?  Because I bet anyone posting in this thread would like them.  Apologies if I have - I forget where I've pimped that thing.  There's Acro Challenge, Acrowars, Acro Phoni, and probably some others.  Basically, they give everyone in an online room an acronym, everyone makes up something that it could stand for, and then everyone votes on whose was best.

Actually, for once, I tried to offer something constructive. :(

Well how did you expect me to catch something as out of character as that? ;)
2171  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Entire Life Completed RPG List on: January 12, 2009, 11:00:28 PM
I've finished EVERY GAME EVER.  I also have the largest dick here.  I've had sex with another man and I've met Val Kilmer.

Top that.


Oh yeah?  Well I went into the future and brought back games that haven't even come out yet and finished them too!

But I haven't had sex with a man... and I don't plan to... so I will cede the victory to you.

I love you John.

And lucky for him, someone else does, too. :D

I don't want to alienate readers here... but seeing how everyone both on and off the staff disagrees with Gen Eric, why is anyone still bothering with answering, arguing, contradicting, or whatever you want to call it?  Eric thinks one thing, we all (unless I'm forgetting someone) think another.  He's explained himself, and I think that even though we think he's wrong, we comprehend what he is saying... even if we can't make his logic make sense in our heads.  And vice versa.  

Eric feels strongly that the site was wrong not to award any Wii game a GotY award, the site feels that we were correct to do so.  Although we appreciate our readers' opinions, we are under no obligation to agree with them, to change our coverage to suit them, or (to be brutally honest) even to justify ourselves to them.  To paraphrase a wise man, you can satisfy all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can't satisfy all of the people all of the time.  Even if you're Ron Jeremy or Jenna Jameson.  (OK, so I added that last part myself - this was getting too serious.)  

If most readers are happy, they'll stick around, and hopefully tell their friends and click on ads and such.  If someone doesn't, they'll probably raise a big stink, and then either get over it or get out.  They'll probably tell their friends as well, but unless they're a total psycho (and although Gen Eric seems passionate, I'm not getting the total psycho vibe from him), that's as far as it'll go.

FWIW, I don't actually think Eric's trolling.  Trolling is (to me) to say things you don't believe with the deliberate purpose of being inflammatory.  He seems to believe what he's saying most wholeheartedly.  Now, as to why he would stick around a site where he disagrees so strongly with everyone who writes for the site AND everyone who reads the site, I don't know, and I don't care to resort to speculation (which always amounts to either overjustification or ad hominem attacks).

So... how about we all drop it.  (And that includes any more posts from anyone saying "but I tried to drop it!")

(Oh, and now you see why my nickname at the last site I wrote for was Grandpa.)

Yeah, the second PMD didn't change too much in that regard.  There were some improvements, including some simplification in the way you recruited new folks and in the way you switched party members, but I think the overall pacing was pretty much the same as the first.
2175  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Entire Life Completed RPG List on: January 12, 2009, 04:29:05 PM
Some people say there is an optional dungeon available after you complete it. I heard the design depends on the choices you made during the game.

Nicely played - you won the fantastic prize of an lol from me at work. :D
