Busy Past Few Days

Lots of stuff at work - little time to talk. Monday and Tuesday were ten hour work days and Thursday was finishing up three websites. Oy.

Tuesday - Ate at Pings with Steph before she had to fly down to Arkansas and then Texas.

Watched Justice League: New Frontier on HD DVD. Very pretty animation and a good story, but way too short at only 70 minutes. Great special features though.

Heather Vlad and I also watched the first of Horrorfest 2007 in “Crazy Eights.” Decent film. Good acting, some actual “name” actors, and the plot was interesting, but it all went to shit at the end of the movie with a nonsensical ending and nothing explained. This is partly because it was only 80 minutes long. And it wasn’t one of those “Asian Horror film style movies that does explain things, but not in the Americans need their hands held through the entire film” way. It was a “We’re going to bring this detail up…then kill the character and leave it unanswered. Also, the ending has nothing to do with the first 78 minutes of the film and it’s a clusterfuck fade to black.”

I think we gave it a 5/10 for having the potential, then flushing it down the shitter.

yesterday was nothing but working out and three straight outs of Sega Superstars Tennis. I hate the “classic” gameplay that uses the wii remote like an NES Joystick. I am also not a fan of the Wiimote/Numchuk combo. The straight up wiimote play? Incredible and highly addicting. I’ve yet to lose to the computer though, but it’s not as if the AI is easy. They’ve all been close matches. I’ve finished 38% of the Superstars mode, which is a bunch of tennis and Sega franchise themed mini games. I’ve also only unlocked one character, which is Gum from jet Set Radio. I’ve fully completed the Samba Di Amgio, House of the Dead, and Puyo Pop worlds. I’m nearly done Jet Set Radio and Super Monkey Ball, but I’m stuck on two highly frustrating mini games. Even worse the Superstar mode forces you to use the “Classic” controls, which are unresponsive at best. Yes, the Wiimote has amazing controls and yet a normal controller layout doesn’t. Wacky, huh?

In all, I’m really enjoying it and I’m playing mostly as Ulala from Space Channel 5. I have no idea WHO will like the thing though as sports fans will disavow it and a lot of us are just so used to Sega being synonymous with bad games these days that it will get avoided. Between this, HoTD Return and Condemned 2, it appears SEGA is finally back on track. Happy day!

Also on the video game front, MLB Power Pros is at 19.99 as the Deal of the Day on Amazon.com which, finally made me knuckle down and buy it. What can I say? I’ve wanted a baseball game for a long time for the Wii so I can get some caloric loss while playing and it is either that or MLB 2k8. MLK 2K8 had mediocre reviews on all systems EXCEPT the Wii, but the Wii version is also stripped of all the extra goodies like Minor League play and the Trading Card collecting thingie. EDIT: oops. Forgot to actually finish processing the payment due to work and now it is sold out. Well, fuck.

Also for Vlad, I preordered Battle of the Bands. Fellow Diehard Gamefan staffer Mark mentioned it in his blog today and the two of us were laughing about it last week and the potential for a Marching Band version of “Mama Said Knock You Out.” so I’m sure we’ll be highly amused by it.

I’ll say it again - 2008 is the best year for gaming since I moved back to America.
