La Mulana.  It was on sale super cheap (buck fifty or less) a day or so into the winter sale and I'm glad I picked it up.  A 2-D side scrolling platformer, it's sort of hard to pigeonhole but it has elements of metroidvania with an emphasis on puzzle solving.  Like the first area has a useful item hidden it that requires you navigate almost the entire area multiple times to finally get your hands on it.  Which felt like a major accomplishment until I realized that as cool and useful as the item was it really didn't do anything to help me with the obstacles keeping me from exploring further into the tomb.  If you like games that stress problem solving, exploration and gadget collecting give it a look.

Also "How to survive" seems pretty promising.  It has local co-op even on PC which is a feature usually missing.

World War Z. Read the book and AVOID THIS FUCKING MOVIE. Complete shit.
I thought it was a mediocre zombie movie, but it was a waste calling it World War Z since it really had nothing to do with the book.

Picked up Mount & Blade Collection for $6.99, 80% off. And the other day it had Deponia for a toonie, 90% off.


I think you'll enjoy Mount and Blade.  And I keep hoping that the last Deponia game goes on deep discount during this sale.  I've been jonesing for it for a while now.  I'm currently trying to decide if I want to grab either Eldritch or Battlefield 2 complete.

Steam has Max Payne 3 and all of its DLC for 80% off right now.  6.99 will score you everything there is to get for it.  I'm technically not playing it yet since the whole deal clocks in at over 33 Gig but once it's done downloading...

*sigh* 

I need faster internet.

I hardly ever drink anymore.  My alcohol tolerance has gotten so high I have to drink dangerous amounts to even get buzzed.  It sucks.

I downloaded it yesterday but my wife won't allow me to play it until she has free time to watch.  Let me know if there's anything special you have you to do to sync your saves from season 1 or if it autodetects.

Its' been years since I last read Megatokyo but that brought me back. Used to keep up with it despite the update issues it had. Your awesome taste is shown yet again.

I used to love Megatokyo but that died a while back when Fred kind of just slogged around and slowly killed the remaining magic the series had left.  I actually picked the custom title (snippet of Celldweller lyric) before the avvy and was googling phrases like "moody pictures" or something to find an appropriate pic to go with it.  When I saw this pic I instantly recognized Miho and it seemed like a good fit.

Dude, I'm totally down.  As long the band name is Penguin Death Squad and I either get to do the album art or get creative control of it. 

Seriously though, a punk EP would be awesome.  I can do guitar, sing if required to and if we have forever and a day to do this I can even lay down the drum tracks (I have a decent drum program for the PC.)  I don't have access to a bass or keyboard at the moment.  I currently only have a few pieces of my guitar work digitally, I'll see if I can get them uploaded to a fileshare or you tube or something.  Probably won't be this week though since you know, Christmas and all that.

Interestingly enough, I've read the manga sequel but have yet to see the movie sequel despite having owned it for over a year.  I've heard it fails so hard as to tarnish the original and I'm afraid for that to happen.

Yes it is.  If it has the HK stamp of approval it must be awesome.

just finished reading the hunger games trilogy last night... I'd originally dismissed the books as fluff when I found out that Hollywood was doing an adaptation, but... dang. Take a story that starts with merciless bloodsport... and then go *darker* with it. The author handled PTSD and stress effects with her characters really well (or at least, so it seemed to me, who has never experienced PTSD personally). I was surprised to find that I'd rank her handling of it up there with David Drake.

I doubt Hollywood can do the characters justice... but I'm eager to find out. If they can, that'd make the actress a new favorite, easily.

I still haven't watched the entire first movie.  And I'm not going to take the hipster stance and accuse one of ripping off the other but have you read Battle Royale?  You really should.    Then you should watch the movie.  They are both really good.  Don't read the manga without having brain bleach handy though and don't feel bad if you skip it entirely.  You've been warned.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

I can't say I didn't enjoy it, but I was rather confused at points, and somewhat disappointed at the end.

I've lost more and more enthusiasm for this movie series since the Two Towers and the trailers for this one with Legolas in them just kind of made me cry on the inside.  I would ask if they read the books at all but I'm pretty sure I don't want to know the answer since either way I'll be dissapointed.  I'll still go see it though.  Because the hope is there...

Sometimes I hate being a fanboy.

I think it's interesting the uproar that the Wasteland 2 beta is causing in the Steam forums.  For those who don't know, the final price point for Wasteland 2 hasn't been set yet though the devs have tossed around numbers like 25 or 30 dollars so I doubt very much it will exceed 30.  Back during the Kickstarter the backers who pledged at 60 or more (such as myself) got access to the beta as soon as it was available.  Two or three days afterward the beta was opened to anyone on Steam willing pay 60 bucks.  Those who do pay the 60 bucks also get a handful of goodies that were previously only available to backers that people who buy the game at its final price won't get.  Apparently some people have a problem this though for the life of me I can't figure out why.  It's very simple.  If you don't want to be involved in the beta, wait for the "real" release.  But don't expect the devs to make the beta available to someone at a price point less than the backers who put their money on the line since before day 1.  The ones on Steam who are now cursing the devs unto the seventh generation and claiming they will now not buy the game at all because they are pissed at the devs for not making an open beta... take a chill pill and have yourself a reality check. 

In other news, still dicking around with the WL2 beta.  I have a few gripes/nitpicks and I'll probably be submitting a bug report before the end of the week.  But overall it's good.  The tone is spot on.  And at least one of the other "original" characters is still alive and kicking which made me inordinately happy.  Somehow I mised picking her up the first time I played. 

Also I just hit tier 3 in DCU Online.  The steady stream of content that keeps opening up is pretty nice considering I technically maxed out my character level weeks ago.  The combat rating thing takes a bit to get used to but it's a nice gimmick that keeps you from having to grind levels with each new expansion.

Hey Sammie, congrats.

Long time no see.
