I’m thinking about picking this up tomorrow. I’m not a fan of Oliver Bowden’s writing at all (there’s a particularly hilarious quote from Renaissance I need to post later) but the Assassin’s Creed world is one that I enjoy being in so much, that I can usually look past it.
Is this book worth buying (I’ve already heard pretty bad things about it), or should I just put my money towards a pre-order of Revelations and just twiddle my thumbs until November?
How is it that every grand prize winner on America’s Funniest Home Videos is the least funny video of the evening? It’s like a rule or something. I could laugh like a hyena for 45 minutes at video after video of dude getting hit in crotch, dude falling down flight of stairs, dude getting hit in…
Australia’s Funniest Home Videos is the exact same way, so…
Resident Evil was the first PlayStation game I ever owned, and although the franchise has become one of my absolute favourites of any medium, and having gone through both Jill and Chris’s scenario in the remake, I’ve never actually finished the original game.
I’ve had the Nintendo DS port of Resident Evil for a few months now, and with my 3DS collecting dust after I got as far as I could handle with The Mercenaries 3D, I’ve decided to give the original game a genuine attempt.
I have to say, I don’t mind the DS-added puzzles, but the first-person knife fights are just tedious and they break up the flow of the game.
So far, my favourite new addition to the game is the ability to get a reaction out of Chris and Jill by poking them in the butt on the touch screen. That was the one thing that’s really missing from the new games!
Blanche: So that’s when this salesman from men’s sportswear walks clear across the store into ladies’ petite and says, “Oh excuse me, miss, but I noticed you’ve been having a hard time deciding between the turquoise strapless and the flaming red backless. Well, personally I’d like to see you in the backless.” And I said, “When?” And he said, “How about Saturday night?” And I said, “How about in your dreams, sleazo!” Can you believe the nerve of that guy?
DEFINITELY Incredible! It's one of the most personal and honest songs from the 00s in my opinion. The lyrics tells a sad tale about a marriage in the process of desolving, and longing for the days when they first met and fell in love. Forget the whole dance breakdown stuff at the end, it's all about the first part.
I’m exactly the opposite with Incredible, I can’t stand the lyrics and the first part of the song, but I think the second half with the breakdown is absolutely (don’t mind the pun) incredible!
“The pride of men, of parents as well, makes us believe that anything we create, we can control. Our children are alloys all built from our own imperfect flesh. We animate them with magic and never truly know what they will do.”—Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (“Heavy Metal”)
