Finally finished Mass Effect.  Went through the ending three times to make the different choices, was disappointed that two gave me the same ending.  Since I got all endings without playing once nice and once mean, I don't think I'll play it again.  It was fun, but there are other games that need playing.

I've discovered that both my laptop and my PSP have issues with the left audio jack for headphones.

Hate to ask the stupid question, but have you considered that it might just be that your left headphone is dead?

book 4 was kind of a slog.

My favorite series ever.  Totally agree about book 4.  A good story, but didn't really need to be book 4 of the series.  Should have just had that as a side thing after the fact or something.

Will be watching to see what you say here after you finish book 7.

Bought and read Watchmen start to finish last week while on vacation.  Started People of Sparks, the sequel to City of Ember.  Good stuff so far.

There's a great used store in the city that I'm happy to support as both a game store and a local store that's not a chain.

Wow - those are tough to find these days.  Congrats!

Also, Monkey Island is the greatest island ever.

Awesome writing, can play it however you want, just like Ryos said.  Lots of reading, but if you like reading, it's very worthwhile reading.  One of the only games I know where you can net more XP by talking your way through something than by fighting your way through.
2302  Media / Single-Player RPGs / PSP or DS for rpg games on: August 08, 2008, 01:36:48 PM

Well, if you have to choose one, I'd say PSP. [La la la - part I didn't hear cut out.] Right now I really don't play much of my DS or PSP, but I would easily choose my PSP for its added collection of PS1 games. Really, either one is fine. They're both turning out to be great handhelds.

This is what I came here to say.  Can't really go wrong either way, but I prefer the PSP.  OK - one more note.  Depends on what kind of game you like.  If you're after hacky-slashy things, gotta go with the PSP.

Woot for double-posts in the book thread!  Or not.  No matter.

I recently saw a trailer for an upcoming movie called City of Ember, and I thought "ooh - it's like Fallout!"  I hit the bookstore and found that it's a sci-fi book intended for "young readers" (like the first Harry Potter books, I think).  Not kids - probably teens.

ANYWAY... I read it over the course of about a day.  It's a really good book, and it does have a vibe of "what if you lived in the vault from the first Fallout, but didn't realize there was anything else out there?"  There are two sequels, with a third coming out later this month.  I'm gonna be hitting the bookstore tomorrow to get the next one.

What really peeves me are the elevators; I hate how you have to ascend/descend one floor at a time, and you can't just use the same elevator to go up or down, you use separate elevators to go up or down.

That's the thing - lots of little annoyances like this detracted from the game too much for me to love it.  Gotta hand it to them on simplicity of controls, though.  Only game I've played with easier controls was probably Donkey Konga. (Two bongos and clapping.  That's all.)

Level 24 in Puzzle Quest.

I loved that game.  It's more RPG than many people realize - the way you improve your character and the class you choose really make a huge difference in how the game plays.

Been goofing around with Arkanoid on the DS lately and finished it last night.  Of course, that's not really saying much...

I really had to work to remain sort of objective for my review after the labyrinth-like mess that was the first city.  Couldn't love it, but I've definitely played worse.

Wolverine's not my favorite character from X Men, but he's the best choice to make a movie about, I believe. The action surrounding him is a lot more visceral and intimate than most, and he's got one of the better backstories.

That trailer was fantastic. And finally: GAMBIT.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

And when you think about it, when times are tough, it's when you want some escapism.

If you hadn't already said it, this is exactly what I was going to say.
2310  The Rest / General Discussions / Don't try to reenact old commercials in Utah. on: July 24, 2008, 08:23:05 AM
Quote from: "Jimmy"
Why am I not surprised? Oh, yea, all the cops in this state are pricks.

Wait... what did the cops do wrong?  As far as I can tell, some guy made a joke about mustard, some other guy pulled a gun on him, and later the gun guy got arrested for doing something he surely should have known was not OK.

The mustard joke was kinda stupid, given how old those commercials are, but pulling a gun on the joker was far more stupid.  Even if you love guns, I hope you can agree that's not what they're for.

(I am relieved to see the gun guy's name in this article, though - when I first heard about this, I went "tell me that wasn't my brother...")
