I missed seeing when you said that, but it's good to know.  We picked up 47 Ronin as well, but haven't watched it yet.

Watched Man of Tai Chi.  It was pretty good!

Keanu did a surprisingly good job of directing (although there were a few goofy shots), and I think he did a better job of acting than he usually does.

Glad you found it despite my sketchy info. :)

That last one reminds me of a great Robot Chicken sketch: Law and Order: KFC.

I love the infamous games. It's worth noting that the movement and gameplay is much, much more fluid in 2 than it was in 1. So if he tries 1 and likes the idea but feels the execution is kind of lacking, it's worth jumping straight to 2.

If you don't have PS+, it's probably worth getting.  They give out a lot of good free games, and all you really need is one or two a year to pay you back for the cost of admission.  And since the subscription covers all platforms and you have a Vita as well, it's extra worth it.

I know I sound like a shill, but I really like PS+!  I think it's a great buy for someone who's just getting a PS3 at this point.

Even as a totally straight guy, I'd be a liar if I said I disagreed.

I feel that way about soup.

I am also a pretty big fan of soup.  Just not quite as much as sandwiches.

I know I just posted, but I feel like I should say that sandwiches are my favorite food of all time.  And I'm no snob about it.  One time, I worked someplace where the only nearby lunch options were a wings place and a Subway sandwich shop - I ate at Subway almost every single work day for 9 months.  I got several different sandwiches, depending on what I felt like that day.  I like Jimmy John's, Which Wich, Ike's in the SF bay area, Snarf's, Half Fast Subs in Boulder, Collegetown Bagel in Ithaca, Monsoon's suggestion of pulled pork sounds awesome...

I just really like sandwiches. :)

You sure it's not an MLT?

Nope, that's all about the same movie.  It's a pretty loose, comedic adaptation.

Code:
If I read the wikipedia article correctly, I'd guess this works as a prequel to the novel, because he's all alone until the very end.

I noticed Journey To The West at the store this week and decided to give it a shot, because it's the latest movie by Stephen Chow, who made Kung Fu Hustle, which I love.  This one is an adaptation of a classic Chinese book (first published in 1592, so pretty freaking classic), and it's about a young monk who is trying to help people by vanquishing demons.  However, he doesn't want to beat the demons into submission, the way other demon hunters do, but rather remind them of the good in them from back when they were people.  Dangerous methods, but luckily, there is a female demon hunter who saves him (whether he likes it or not) by kicking demon butt when things don't work his way.

I didn't love it as much as Kung Fu Hustle, but it's still quite good.

I've been reading the Diablo book Legacy of Blood.  It's not bad!  It's not great, but it's not bad.
74  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: [Fallout 1] Retrospective on: May 31, 2014, 02:01:28 PM
There was an in-game time limit?

I loved Fallout 1.  So much.  My issue was that I got pretty far in and saved myself into a combat situation where I couldn't save my dog from dying.  So I started over.

I'm glad you liked it - we usually just include songs written for games, rather than a song like I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire, which already existed outside of the game... but when I had the chance to be on the sci-fi episode, I knew I had to include something from Fallout.  And that song is so iconic to Fallout that I couldn't imagine going with anything else. :)

Oh, and Masakado, you might like a group called Big Daddy.  They mash up lyrics from more modern pop songs with tunes from the '50s.  I have their album Cutting Their Own Groove, and I really like it.
