  1. Mario RPG, duh. And Star Fox 64 is good for some old-time fun.
  2. Why? My big screen normal television works just fine. I'm not changing arbitrarily to a new one until the old one gets broken; I don't have that kind of money, and plus I just don't think HD is worth the upgrade.

    Nintendo Wii

    I loved it when I had the original, so I'm buying the new one. I lost interest with it I think because I played it too much at the beginning last time, so if you aren't careful you can burn out super easy. But otherwise, it should be good. I'll be playing it with a girl by my side, so that might help me out too.

    AIDS cure...?

    Yes, because a bone marrow transplant is just as easy as an abortion. No responsibility!

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081113/ap_on_he_me/eu_med_aids_treatment Interesting development...I'm glad there isn't a huge hype of this yet, since it could so likely turn out to be nothing more than luck, but I think this has great potential.
  7. Alright, it's over. The spectacle that is Halloween is finished, the surprise is over, so let's share. I went to our annual dance party dressed as Ness. What did you guys do for Halloween?
  8. Already ordered it. I dunno when I'll have time for it though. I still haven't made it through chapter one on the English translation of Mother 3. Darn school.
  9. I didn't know you could be born without a sense of humor.

    Indiana Jones 4

    The main problem I see for Indy 4 is that it will not hold up over time. The other three were timeless in the presentation and, whether through nostalgia or just plain fun, they entertain just the same today as they did the day they came out and I'm certain my kids will enjoy them just as much as I did. Indy 4 will not do the same. The holes that all of us are pointing out will only become more obvious as time goes on, expecially with the advancing rate of CG that we're currently seeing. Indy 4 will not face the future well at all while the main three will be classics for years to come. It's the differnce between Indy pulling a gun on a swordfighting guy and Indy blowing the dart back through the dart gun. Both are unexpected; one still makes me chuckle while the other will elicit a laugh for only the first time and a strained one at that.
  16. I'm 20, so in that younger age group, and my Wii gets daily play at this point, mostly due to loud Mario Kart sessions that happen in my house. It fluctuates depending on what games are out, but it definitely gets played at least once a week, even during the slow sessions; I still have to beat Fire Emblem and get 100% in Brawl and Mario Kart, so I don't see it changing much until this summer, when no games come out and I get really busy.

    Indiana Jones 4

    Unless you're watching avant-garde films, then yes, the suspension of disbelief is paramount in a Hollywood film. Indy 4 failed me several times on this account, which none of the previous three did.

    Indiana Jones 4

    Well, let's see. My problems with the new Indiana are multiple. One: too many sidekicks. In the originals, I got to know Short Round, or Marion, or Marcus Brody because they were all treated with the same respect and character development. In this one, I hardly know Mac, who switches sides more than once as if it was funny, Marion is a ghost of her former self and the only one I even connect with halfway decently, Mutt, is not given the same level of depth that was given to Henry Sr. that made you enjoy watching the movie. And another problem: what's with the crappy CGI everywhere? I can name two or three instances in the original where the special effects were noticable and detracted from the movie (ie, the Ark finale, the Doom finale, and, well, the Grail finale). In this one, the special effects were everywhere and visibly took me outside the movie. The ants were probably the least fake, but even they looked terrible. The CGI was used far too much. Does anyone else remember the awesome stunts in the others, such as fighting on a plane just before everything blows up, or maybe the boat chase in the Holy Grail, let alone the opening boulder-chase scene. The fencing scene looked just as fake as the other shots, taking me once more out of the film. While I can seriously enjoy an Indy movie, it's the ability of the movie to take me there instead of constantly reminding me of it's falsity that I can't connect at all. That is why this movie fails. And I would say this about any movie, not just Indy; I'm not letting my nostalgia tainted eyes glorify a film that doesn't deserve it. I'm basing my judgment on what makes a movie good on just that; not other Indy films, regardless how much I loved them.

    Indiana Jones 4

    No. The first ones were homages to 1930s serials. This one was an homage to 50's b-movies. I didn't like the change in style, so sue me.

    Indiana Jones 4

    The problem was is that I was willing to believe it, but after a certain point they began not trying. I did enjoy the movie, but I would have enjoyed it more if it were less like a B-Movie and more like Indiana.

    Indiana Jones 4

    I would have watched that. And enjoyed it more than Indy 4.
  22. How much for Ocarina of Time/Master Quest? I'd like to have it legally for once.

    Indiana Jones 4

    I thought some of the plot devices-hell, all of the plot was stupid. It passed my suspension of disbelief. Although, I guess when you get Spielberg doing an adventure movie in the fifties, certain cliched plot devices are necessary. I was disappointed, but I still had a good time.
