You can choose to play as protoman in Mega Man 10 (have to be careful with the roman numerals here). I think he takes more damage than megaman so I didn't bother myself. Also my skills have definitely rusted from playing RPGs, 9 and 10 were barely manageable, but you can cheat and buy some E-capsules if you suck.

EVOL's like my second favorite Sonic Youth album.

There is nothing wrong at all with this ^^^. It was albums like that, that ended up spawning some of my all time favorite music. In fact, and I may be totally off base here so don't write me off as crazy but, I really feel like if you role that album up with the Pixies you arrive at the "Nirvana Formula" of grunge in a manner of speaking.

Now since I can't speak on love, I'm gonna talk more about work.

That was one of the most difficult portraits I've ever drawn. Between us here at RPGFan I'm gonna share a little secret. I had an infection that greatly inhibited my eyesight in one eye last week. This is a secret because no one would hire a blind artist. Anyhow, I can't express how frustrating it was to do that portrait from an old wallet photo from like the 50's or something (no idea how old really).

The eyesight is fine now by the way, but wow is that something you really miss when its not working right even if it is only one eye and temporary.

Wow, Anima does look wickedly impressive.

Also I'm surprised they haven't made a Vergil game up to this point, I feel he's more popular than Dante.  You know there's always that character in a series that you always WISH would get their own game but doesn't (or it takes years and years)? 

God, as a kid did I want a Megaman to star Protoman. Now, I can't even have more Megaman. Zero was the Protoman of "X" but by the time he got more in the limelight I lost a great deal of interest. In truth, as fond as I am of Mega in memory they make me want to break my controller as an adult. Maybe I got worse at games as I got older?

Shots of Rose as super sailor scout saiyan, some really roughly-matched cameo DLC (based widely on popularity, IMO, so sorry Eternia & Rebirth), and some pretty nice beach attire.

What an odd title to revive.

Hopefully it'll be more playable than OG Xanadu (because lol).

Hunger Games: Mocking Jay - Part 1

= What a title.

= How many times can we get Jen Lawrence to cry on camera: [*stopped counting at 10*]

= Peeta x Katniss are terribly uninteresting as far as their chemistry goes.  So how do we make it more uninteresting?  Let's make a good tenth of Katniss's dialogue of her saying/shouting/crying the name "Peeta"!! 
...What the fuck.  This girl.  This tough girl...  Literally every scene was about doing something for Peeta, thinking about Peeta, or crying for this blonde prig.  Maybe i'd buy into it more if their chemistry didn't feel so awkward, they're 'opposites attract' but I don't see the attraction working.

= You rarely see actresses deliberately age themselves up (rather, look their age without all the makeup, hair colouring, etc.) unless they're doing a period piece where, y'know, it doesn't exist yet.  Anyways, the point is, seeing Julianne Moore with grey/white hair was surprising.

=  The song Katniss sings was nice enough, but I liked that created a bit more variety to the music.  Which, for the most part, I like anyways.  It's a pretty nice and atmospheric score.

= There's some irony when Katniss can't do her 'rebel propaganda' films because it felt too Hollywood....  But it was a fun sub-plot for this film, this particular film, The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay - Part 1......

= Too little of Jenna Malone here

= Effie was wonderful as always! 

= So was Haymitch!

= Kudos to this Young-Adult for showing as much blood as it does.  It's not that-that much, but it does quite a bit.  But hey, this is the series that got a bunch of kids to kill each other in an arena too, so...

= For a movie about rebellion there was too little District Interaction, sights, or even POV from the Capitol at all.

= IIRC The Matrix had its last two films release within 6 months of each other....  Why is Part 2 for this taking 11 months???  I feel that's also bad for the heat of this series to maintain itself, this film was much more of a whimper than a bang to leave on a cliff hanger for.

= And on that, oh man, I have to be kind because this is a book split into two films, but it's really quiet and tame.  It's entertaining, for sure!  But it, much like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow before it, just don't have enough content to really fill itself out elegantly.  Is it work your time?  Yes!  Is it worth your money?  If Netflix subscription fees count.

I never played Unlimited SaGa, but I have heard some people say that the game is just misunderstood- that if the play mechanics were better explained then the game would be at least sorta kinda cool.  What say you folks?

Long story short is that Unlimited didn't had the same luck Demon's Souls had in finding a sizeable devoted audience around the world.

It doesn't help either that much of what makes SaGa SaGa goes against virtually everything SQEX's audience search in their games. If Mana is FF's sister and Bravely Default is FF's little kid, then SaGa is like, the lost (eccentric) brother.

Also, I recommend reading this article:

Girlfriend has completely hijacked the TV to play FFVI.  This is awesome because she's into something that I love dearly.  But also not awesome because I have to put Tales of Vesperia on hold and that game is awesome.

The closest I've come to girls I've dated is when this happens and then you hop into config and set a character for "controller 2". Nothing like quality time with your gal spent stopping some malevolent forces/evil empires.

DIABLO 3/ Heck is this game addicting. I don't know how many hours I put in the last few days because they simply evaporate as I play. Beat the big bad lord of lies today. I feel good about it. I think however I need to take a break after really marathon-playing it the last 2-3 days.

DON'T STARVE/ Bought this compulsively last night on the PSN holiday sale. No experience with rogue-like titles really. I think I may give this a go tonite.

I feel REALLY into trying new games lately. Normally I play them until I beat them. In the last year or two I got WAY better at retiring games I didn't like but I finally feel like its OK to try something new without having finished off other games as well. Something about getting hyper-excited with the PSTV and PS4 did me in and I just feel like broadening my horizons. Life is short. There are many games to play. I feel denying myself this fact in the interest of always seeing the credits role costs me the opportunity to play a lot of things.

Yeah, one of my biggest pet-peeves with games is when they don't give you enough info on how things work. I couldn't even grasp the basics there...it was too confusing.
