Ordered Monster Hunter 3
, so I may arrive next week at best. As for current gaming, I am surprised of Lego Star Wars
. I own the "ultimate collection" with all movie episodes, so I have quite a bit to play. I just reached "A New Hope" last week, and I had the game since, I believe, two Christmases ago. My passion was getting better in Mario Kart and its unlockables...
but still, BUT STILL, I can't do it. I always had problems with Time Trials in various racing games. It seems so unfair.
Back to Lego Star Wars:
SURPRISINGLY exciting, and even difficult at times. Not to mention, the familiar SW music and sound effects that we all know are included in the game. It's also funny; I never thought they could make the birth scene in episode 3 so silly-looking. I was actually chuckling.
As for difficulty, Jango Fett for example. So much is happening, like raids of enemies charging at you, especially with ranged laser weaponry. Lego Star Wars can really toy (pun) with you if you're like money/jewelry/shiny compulsive because one of the things you do in LSW is to collect lego pieces for unlockables. However, with so much going on, you die and have to collect the scattered pieces. And there are lego pieces in almost every corner, hidden in virtually every object from torches to desks. There is also puzzles and the wide level design. [ TV Special: POKEMON The Origin ]I LOVE CHARMANDER!
Watched the four episodes previous Tuesday.
I LIKED IT! I think I'd give it a 7 out of 10. If you ever played a pokemon game on a handheld, especially Red and/or Blue, then watching The Origin
was a swift trip of nostalgia. That's what the majority of watchers would say: Nostalgia, from the music to some of the dialogue (ie: Oikido's soliloquy, Green's "See ya gramps", "The poke center is the building with the red roof").
Since it's four episodes, the pacing is quite fast. I mean, really fast. That's probably the disappointing part; I was probably the most disappointed with half of the last ep.
As for the characters, I am a little surprised that people say that Green/Gary/Blue is "too much of a jerk". He was always a jerk. He was very high-handed. It's just fleshed out a bit more in the show. Because you was always traveling, it's not like you met with him much doing your journey game-wise.
I liked Red's learning curve. He didn't understand how str/weak worked. I think the anime was airing in U.S when Red/Blue was released, so I think we already had an idea on how the fight system worked when we played the game ^^; But it was good to see. Also, Brock/Takeshi seemed to play the role of the old man from Viridian.
A strong point is the fluid animation of most of the fights. Not all, but most. Spoiler photo of Episode 4[ Kamen Rider ]Gaim
aired last weekend, but maybe I'll talk about it another time. Maybe after the second or third episode.
Gonna talk about OOOs and W (called "Double")
because I wanted to pick up more KR since I watched KR Fourze and Wizard.
At first, I thought I wasn't going to like OOOs because it was strange, but I think I understand what the appeal is. It just might be human vs Greeds, or Eiji vs Greeds. Eiji Hino, who is KR OOOs, is the "my pace sense of justice" type, but he's stuck working with Ankh because Ankh's former pals are creating monsters (ie: The Yummy) from human desires. Ankh wants the Yummies to be created, and then destroyed to collect medals but every character, from Greeds to Kogami, want the medals. Furthermore, Ankh possessed the body of the heroine's bro. In all of this, there is the show's outlook on mistrust. what's the Kogami Corp in all of this?
Also, I want to see more of the Core Medal effects on OOO. What is Eiji's past?
As for Double, it is a detective show. We have Phillip, the mafia-like Sonozaki Family, and the show's serious atmosphere.[ Others ]
Over affordable health premiums...that's all I hear. "No negotiations" and "healthcare". I won't say "Obamacare" because it's not like the Pres created his own medical institution. So the name is dumb.
Too tired to talk about shutdown thoroughly. It is quite unfortunate, especially for those who are affected by it. And shouldn't be. Definitely no veterans should be barred from going to a WWII site, soldiers shouldn't lack pay, etc.
Quite frankly, U.S can't live without a government. It was founded, or rather, no, U.S citizens progressed into a party-combined government. People talk about what's against the Constitution; to encourage a shutdown, or to even let it linger for so long, would be wrong.
It doesn't have to do with tons of control, which people fear, it's stability. It should be conservative. U.S isn't an anarchy, and no one is living 300 years ago.
And who is anyone to say that "one side" isn't negotiable?
By the looks of the approval rating, The U.S Congress is apparently more scum than a molded toilet seat.
