Been watching Ouran High School Host Club, and yes it's goofy and over the top, but it's hilarious!  And it's got Vic Mignogna, Junpei from P3's VA, need I say more?

I started watching this over Thanksgiving because I was bored and heard it mentioned a couple of times from friends. It was a great guilty pleasure series, but I only watched the first half of the first season or so. K-ON! falls into the same boat for me - cutesy guilty pleasure anime fun.

I'm a bit late on the bandwagon for The Social Network but I just finished watching it and I thought it was really good. Jesse Eisenberg did a great job, and I liked that there wasn't a very conventional structure to the film. The dialogue was very sharply written as well.

I'm playing Darksiders and apparently I'm getting close to the end. It's not the best game ever, but it's pretty damn well made and despite a few frustrating sections I've been having a blast. Totally worth the $7.50 on Steam.

I've also attempted to play Amnesia: The Dark Descent, but that game is scary.

I'm still catching up on RPGs from 2009 (and 2008... and 2007 T_T) so I've barely had a chance to play anything from 2010 thus my lack of a list. I liked what I played, but damn was there a shortage of good console RPGs (excluding games also on PC).

I wish there was more love for Alpha Protocol. Despite all the crap that game took for having terrible gunplay the story was pretty solid and the dialogue system was better than Mass Effect's.

We talked about the Steam stuff on the podcast (episode 15 I think). I had a feeling they would do it like that. It's a bummer since I might have pre-ordered it on Steam to get the Signature Edition, but it's really just business on EA's end. Steam is such a powerhouse in the digital distribution world and helping out the other services (e.g. Impulse, D2D, GamersGate) builds better business relationships with them. You can say they're screwing their Steam customers, but I for one know that I'm going to buy DA2 during one of Steam's many ridiculous sales for like $25 and spend (considerably less than) the difference on DLC.

TL;DR It's not very nice for Steam users, but I'm not going to hold it against them since I'm going to buy it on sale anyway.

The new podcast is up! Definitely stick around for the soundtrack discussion even if you don't care much for soundtracks, it's pretty interesting (and I wasn't even on this episode)!

Also, if anyone was having issues downloading the podcast from the RSS feed or iTunes last night, I just fixed the problem so get listening!

PC supremacy.

Just kidding (but not really).

Also, ME1 and 2 are on sale for $10 a piece on Steam right now.

I'm never one to listen to rap, especially Kanye (due in no small part to his epic douchebaggery), but his new album is pretty good, especially POWER and Monster.

I read the first two Hitchhiker's Guide books for the first time fairly recently, and they're both pretty phenomenal.

Now I'm reading Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. The best adjective I have to describe it is haunting, not that it's scary or anything, but the emotion really gets under my skin.

I want me some Guild Wars 2 real bad. Every time I see new info for that game it looks like they can do no wrong.

I played through 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors on the DS and got two of the six endings (slowly working towards all six, aiming for the true ending last). I thought it was a pretty great adventure/puzzle/visual novel, definitely up there with Phoenix Wright and Hotel Dusk. Apparently the writer also did Ever 17, so I'll see if I can get a hold of that for a less-than-inordinate sum of money.

Played and beat Enslaved at the beginning of the Thanksgiving break, and for the $25 I payed from Amazon on sale it's a solid story. It really loses steam in the second half (once you meet the third character), but the first half of the game is really solid.

Also, I got a Kinect as a belated birthday gift. It's super "casual" gamer fare, but damn if it isn't fun. Definitely going to have a Dance Central party and laugh at all my friends since none of them can dance (myself included).

Two words: Steam Sales.

Not right now, specifically, but there is typically one around Thanksgiving (maybe for Black Friday, can't remember dates) and there's a huge one from mid-late December to January. If you are open to the idea of buying PC games through a digital distribution service, you'd be better off waiting for these sales to do your PC game shopping.

This is my dog:

He died today. He was a good dog.

I just finished Summer Wars (dir. Mamoru Hosoda, 2009). It was phenomenal. It's directed by the same guy who did The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (which was also amazing) and Digimon (which was also amazing, don't lie to yourself).

This looks pretty great, and if Persona 5 has the same visual style (i.e. character models that look almost as good as their portrait counterparts) I will be a very happy camper. I wonder what the gameplay will be like, though.

On the topic of sex, I agree with Neal that it is represented tastefully. With any luck the game will maintain a similar level of taste and tact in its presentation. Also, the trailer shows a CERO C rating (on a scale of A-B-C-D-Z) meaning the game won't be completely out of control.
