Gamer since 1984, and unashamed. Fuck all that self-loathing noise.
Nintendo has announced the 3DS. It's going to be a new series of hardware, not a spin-off. It will be backwards compatible with DS and DSi games. It's going to have 3D "effects" without the use of 3D glasses.
I personally hate 3D, whether its in games or movies. I'm more interested in seeing what kind of performance the hardware is capable of. Hopefully, some developers will ignore the 3D like they ignored the touchscreen, or the player can configure the effects. 3DS will likely become the new de-facto RPG platform of the next half-decade, and if the hardware is PS2/Gamecube caliber, I hope Squaresoft chooses it for their future FF remakes. (No more ugly DS polygons!)
I swore I wouldn't play this in my next "Final Fantasy IX" playthrough, but it's sucked me back in. Can't complain, since I've earned a couple of Cotton Robes and Germinas Boats, along with a bunch of potions and curative items.
And, holy shit, you can learn "Might Guard" as soon as you recruit Quina.
Aw, shit. I gotta try this in my next FF6 playthrough.
Cinema scenes where characters grunt and gasp at every little thing. Depending on the scene, a blind man could mistake FFXIII for a porno instead of a video game.
Of course, I'm talking about "Shiren the Wanderer 3" on the Wii. :-D
My review of the book:
There is too much space between the covers.
My review of the movie:
All the highlights of the book minus the lowlights.
A bad book can make a good movie, especially if Ron Howard directs that movie.
King Cureslime is a great monster.
I hate those Lizard Knights that send my sword and shield flying, causing them to collide with allies/enemies and making the sword/shield disappear forever. There are a lot of them in "Asuka Kenzan!"
Why can't celebrity couples stay together?
Rapidshare never seems to have a free slot available these days.
You never know how great central air conditioning is until you're forced to get by without it.
Sasha Grey can't act.
Coke Zero tastes empty because it doesn't have a soul. Kind of like Sasha Grey's acting method, now that I think about it.
Bill Gates is an alright guy.
I'm running out of reasons to watch television.
