Review #200 (I am insane)

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

New International Track and Field
Publisher: Konami
Developer: Sumo Digital
Genre: Sports
Release Date: 07/24/08

Holy jebus, this is my 200th review.

In my review of the horrible Beijing 2008, I reminisced about my love of the first two Track and Field games. The graphics, the music, the button mashing, and more. Just wonderful games from my youth.

Now we have the newest entry in the series with New International Track and Field. This marks the first appearance of T&F on the Nintendo DS and Konami fans were thrilled to see how this venerable franchise would hold up on the DS.

With Sumo Digital behind the driver’s wheel, does New International Track and Field score a gold, or is the game taking the walk of shame?

So sad to see all this. Why Kurt, why?

Review #199

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Siren: Blood Curse
Publisher: Sony
Developer: SCE Japan
Genre: Survival Horror
Release Date: 7/25/2008

Siren: Blood Curse is my first foray into the Siren series. The first game was not particularly liked Stateside, with complaints about the controls, story, graphics, and gameplay. Meanwhile across the Atlantic, Siren did quite well, both in terms of sales and critical praise. It’s no surprise then that Forbidden: Siren 2 was never released in the US, but again went on to be quite successful in the rest of the world.

Now Sony brings us the third game in the series as a true test of the Playstation store. For the first time a big first party game is being released as a download, either a one giant purchase, or in episodic form. I think this is a great idea as it allows gamers to try a snippet of the title, without having to invest the full $40 into the game. I’ve also read in several articles that Siren: Blood Curse is mostly a remake of the original title, but with an American cast and crew, and all of the previous complaints eliminated and/or improved.

So how does Siren: Blood Curse stack up? We’ve got two big survival horror games coming out later this year in Dead Space and Silent Hill Homecoming Let’s see if it’s worth saving your cash for either or those, or if Siren has finally released a US friendly member of their franchise.

It’s been almost a week since I’ve written in this thing

Monday, July 28th, 2008

It’s been an insane week. I had a week long conference to attend and put in over 80 hours of work last week. That was something I never want to repeat again. SO TIRED. That took up almost all of my week and I did nothing but. I think i got in one or two days of exercise in and that was it.

My new laptop arrive while I was got and it’s wonderful. Go new computing system!

I’ve got a copy of Pokemon Platinum now and I’ve seen the final Pokemon movie, so I’ll be doing a write up for the Magazine of the latter, but I’m under an NDA for the former.

I’ve got at least one day off this week and then I’ve got a four day week coming up in two weeks, so August will be a pretty laid back month for me thank God.

I came home to see a lot of douchebaggery on all sides of something that doesn’t directly affect me, but it does a lot of my friends. Really disappointed in that, but it’s D.C. and I’m sad to say embarassment is par for the course with something I used to love since moving here.

This weekend I believe I’ll be up in PA and MD. Saturday is a hike and Sunday is a cook-out with some friends. Should be fun and a great chance to try out my frisbee golf discs.

Somewhere right now in England, someone is foaming at the mouth.

Dear Friend,

The American Vampire League is the largest organization in the United States dedicated to promoting the equality and civil liberties of vampires. The AVL takes a three-pronged approach: lobbying for the Vampire Rights Act at state and national levels, disseminating accurate information about vampires to the general public and offering guidance to vampires seeking to mainstream.

Each of these efforts supports one ultimate mission: To eradicate the fear and hatred of vampires that is caused by both widespread misinformation and an entire race’s punishment for the crimes of a few. Since the discovery and marketing of synthetic blood, there is no longer any reason for vampires to remain hidden — or to be shunned or discriminated against.

To humans we say: Vampires are your neighbors, your nightwatchmen, your ancestors. And to my fellow vampires: It’s time we all come out of the darkness. Let’s learn to live together without fear.

Yours eternally,
Nan Flanagan

I don’t know whether to think this is cute, or go get a stake proof vest.

Weekend

Monday, July 21st, 2008

This is going to be the busiest week of the year for me. Once July 27th rolls around, it’ll be smooth sailing for the rest of the year. Hopefully DHGF can function without me for three days.

Saturday was awesome because we hit Nando’s, which opened its first US location Weds here in DC. AWESOME FOOD! Heather and Vlad really liked it, especially the Peri-Peri sauces and the ability to dip. I was very happy with the food. It wasn’t quite up to the Aussie and UK branches I’ve been to, as they served Fries instead of peri-peri chips, and they didn’t have the stuffed cock for sale, but it’s close enough for government work and everyone in DC that eats meat needs to hit up that place ASAP. Also when we went? It was not only packed, but most of the people there were speaking with accents.

Sunday I got up and did a long morning run before hitting a 9am showing of The Dark Knight. Every seat was sold out by the time the film started. I’ve never seen that for an early showing before. My thoughts on the film? It was good, but not great and certainly nowhere near the fanboy hype I’ve been seeing online. It was neither the best Batman movie, and definitely not the best super hero movie. Ledger was good, but the Joker was better written then he was acted. He defnitely doesn’t deserve the Oscar talk he’s been getting, as the character is so one dimensional. As well, Ledger brings nothing new to the role as to be honest, he’s just aping Jack who was aping Cesear Romero. It was nice to see him use Romero’s laugh at times which soldifies the one thing everyone who has every played the Joker has ever said - you can’t outdo Romero in this role. Ledger was good, and it’s certainly better then the other crap he’s been in like “A Knight’s Tale,” but he’s a distant fourth to the three actors who really defined the role.

Bale as always was an amazing Bruce Wayne, but a Batman that makes me laugh more than Adam West. Bale gets Batman, but he can’t act the part. From his horrible facial expressions to his horrible Batman voice that actually made people in the theatre laugh out loud on more than one occasion, Bale just is a great actor on paper to play the World’s Greatest Detective, but he can’t vocalize the part.

Freeman, Oldman, and Caine were amazing, but I feel bad for Oldman having to deliver that end monologue because it damn sure fell into camp territory.

Aaron Eckhart however was the star of the film and the actor who really deserves the Oscar talk. It’s easily the most fully fleshed out character in a super hero movie ever, and Harvey Dent’s fall from grace into Two-Face was perfect. It’s sad that a dead drug addict whose character had no actual definition to it is overshadowing the amazing job Eckhart put into the film.

So overall it’s worth seeing, and even worth buying, but it has a lot of problems ranging from the length created by the unecessary half hour tacked on by “Batman goes to Hong Kong” and some plot issues. There were some amazing scenes including one that no doubt pissed off every longtime Batman fan (including me) only to learn later on it was a swerve. Sadly, they did this exact thing in Batman Begins as well making me wonder if the writers watched WCW Monday Nitro in the late 1990’s. Don’t believe the hype, but don’t worry as it’s still a good movie. It’s just not even in the top five superhero movies of all time.

Other than that it was a long workout weekend and the writing of 3 Pokemon articles and some playing of Pokemon Ranger 2: Shadows of Alma. Huzzah.

New Laptop

Friday, July 18th, 2008

For $1,024 it’s got 4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 667MHz , an Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T8300 (2.4GHz/800Mhz FSB/3MB cache) and Blu-ray capability with a lot of maxed out stuff. Yay for 30% off coupons.

I’m hating my desktop and the wireless keyboard and mouse are driving me nuts, so I figured it was time for a change after a few years. This should last me for a while.

Friday Friday Friday Friday Friday!

Friday, July 18th, 2008

So yesterday the power was out until about 9:30. That was a bit annoying, but I got some reading in and I ended up exercising pretty late because of it.

The PS3 movies/TV store is open. I downloaded a few things so that I can do a column on the quality of the system. That will be up Monday.

The one sole Nando’s in the United States opened Weds, and it opened here in Washington D.C. FUCK YEAH! So sometime this weekend I will be eating delicious Nandos chicken for the first time since I was in Australia. It makes sense they opened it here in DC as it’s popular with Afrikaners, Aussies, and Brits, and there’s a decent amount of all three in D.C. Here’s hoping it lasts. Plus, Nandos opening in of all places, where I am living, is proof Cthulhu likes me. Or at least wants to eat me last.

Vacation Taken

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Okay, I just realized I have 72 hours of vacation banked and I still have five and a half months of accrual time still going on, so I sat down and set my vacaton dates

August 15th and 18th. Nice four day weekend around the birthday so I can go do something wacky and fun

October 29th-Nov 3rd. Halloween travel plans with Dan and the Monday after to recover

Nov 24th-26th So I’ll have a 9 day weekend thank to having the 27th and 28th a s company holidays. This is offically my Minneapolis trip. I figure I can catch all my friends in the area between the 21st and 26th, spend Thanksgiving and then spend the 28th and 29th with friends again before leaving on the 30th. I figure I should start seeing who is where now rather than later.

And those other days I’ll be accuring will probably be for sick days or anything else that comes up.

Nigerian Money Scheme or Crazy Guy Who Thinks I’m Dracula. YOU DECIDE.
