Oh, on the portable side of things I finished playing Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland ( the GBA remake of the NES Kirby ).... who in the world could not just love Kirby!?... Yeah the games are easy, ok, really easy, but they are just damn fun!

Just type!

Yeah, long time since I made an entry... so whatever, not gonna come up with any fancy formatting, just TYPE things! I have also been lax the last week or so with my Japanese study/enjoyment... well no more. No more planning to do things, just do them!

Alright so, watched a couple of movies that I had been meaning to watch. Verdicts:

Nightmare on Elm Street. Entertaining, real campy stuff, obviously not scary at all, not unless you are 8 years old I guess....

Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Atrocious movie to watch... not because of the violence but because it was not just boring beyond belief to watch, but also because ( at least to me ) it was actually really irritating and annoying. Everyone got on my nerves, but none more so than the wheelchair guy, every time he said anything I wanted to punch him. Plus, on top of the horrible acting, the characters did things that made absolutely no sense, but not even in the classic movie "stuff happens to further the story" kind of way. Nope, they just did things randomly... who knows... I have no idea how this movie has become a slasher classic... moving on.

Finished Final Fantasy XII!!!.... Fantastic game. Did not feel like an FF game at all though, and I did feel kind of cheated that there really is no way to do any stat maxing or anything, not to the scale of FFX. Replayed Gradius III for the SNES real quick, my fav shmup.

For my next gaming fix it was going to be ICO, well.... I really really want to love the game, but I kind of find myself being bored by it.... oh well, will give it another go.... later. Going to play through FF X-2 eventually but for now, something more actiony and totally PC based (tired of emulation stuff) So I am finally going to finish playing HL2! and obviously Ep1 and 2. Like this I am all caught up. Maybe play through Doom 3 /Halo 1 & 2 ( no 3 for me, not until I get a hold of a 360 ).

..... just type!!! What a revelation!

Supernatural season ender...

... and what an ender it is! Well, I am not one to really review things but I have to say that the writting for Supernatural is some of the best on TV. They are not afraid to move things along, and to change things,yet manage to keep the show grounded and get lost in its own mythology.

In other news, I hate Network Television. Not sure how they make decisions anymore... "Sit Down Shut Up" cancelled 4 episodes in, yet the unaired Clevland Show gets a second season... Life is dead and Scrubs get a 9th season?! Still, I'll try and stay positive... seems like Dollhouse is coming back, along with Castle and Better Off Ted.

Let's just hope that all goes well for Reaper, like Big Bang Theory, each episode keeps getting better and better.

In gaming news, well... not much gaming, at least, not any new. Damn it all if I havent gone back to the old staple: Diablo II. Median XL the mod has breathed new life into this old game (Which by all accounts I have played to death 3 times over).

Going to get back to FFXII, now that I have my saves back and set up emulation (prefer it over playing on the PS2, save states!)... and the wait 'till Street Fighter IV for PC comes out!

Another day of badass gaming... two player style!

Today I continued playing some Co-op Gears of War ( Loved this game when I played single player... with two people it is double the fun ). At the moment I can't continue playing FFXII because my save game is temporarly unavailable.... withdrawal is setting in... I need to play some RPG but don't want to start another long game at the moment.

Hellgate: London was promising with its Diablo likeness (at least till the real deal comes out I am going to have to make due) but it turns out that co-op play is a no go.... too bad really.

On a sad note: RIP Life, you were cut down in your prime, as Crews would say: "I am not attached to this show, I am NOT attached to this show.... well, maybe just a little."

What I am up to now

It has been way too long and I have let this blog fall by the wayside which is a shame. Well things are moving along; will try and post on a semi-daily basis.

Right now I have finally started to play FFXII!!! YAY! I am so happy, been dying to play this game and so far I am not dissapointed.

Show-wise lovin' some Krod Mandoon, not a smart show by any stretch but good mindless fun is just what I want when I sit down to eat.

Oh, and I am going to try and curb the amounts of dot dot dots that I use, it has started to get out of hand.
