“The solid 3D characters are miles better than the flat ones you get in the cartoon.”

“This is probably a stupid question, but do you hire real birds to make your chilli, or do you just get guys in costume?”

… I asked the canary wearing a chef’s hat.

Today’s observation: I have no idea what last night’s dream was all about. It involved going go-carting with my friends; being invited to a group of medieval knights living in the mountains (who called themselves the Nigerian Knights, but had surprisingly few Nigerians); a group of canaries making chilli as a tie-in promotion for the Super Mario Bros. movie; and an arcade game based off M*A*S*H, with Game Over screens featuring shocking amounts of blood and gore from the main characters.

Today’s epiphany: My dreams have better writing than my actual writing.

It don’t take any fuel ’cause the rocket’s in my pocket

Bloop. Some updates! There’s Games I Own reviews, some music, a couple of sprites, and a Bomberman update that could’ve been a lot more substantial if I had the patience to work on it. Recapping a game’s content in a blank, encyclopaedic manner only has its kicks for so long. Sometime!

“Who are you calling a you-you?”

I have been sleeping terribly these past few days, and feeling like rotten hell to boot. If there’s one upside from this, I’ve been having rather outlandish fanfiction-esque dreams relating to TV shows.

Les Gees!

Friday, December 2, 2011 at 2:12 pm Comments (4)

I watched The Iron Giant last night. I’m in one of those miserable curmudgeon-y moods where I’m totally uninspired and a colossal bore and curse arbitrarily to myself (because that’s what bummed people do!), and as such I’m really disappointed that I don’t even have much to say about it. But I really quite enjoyed it! The visual style was really slick and colourful and just gosh darn swell, and for a simple story, it carries itself pretty well. I might even have to admit it tugged on my heart strings a little. I can definitely see what all the fuss is about. Bonus points for John Mahoney voicing the army general, because I just love the dude’s voice.

So there’s this cartoon that I’ve caught more episodes of than I’d liked to; it’s not dreadful or anything (I have to appreciate the effort!), but something about it just plain irks me, y’know. It’s called The Gees.

Madsen Attacked!

I’ve been playing a lot of 24: The Game lately. I never really followed the show nor did I see it as the best damn thing to grace television since sliced bread (it is a little known fact that in 1964 sliced bread staged a takeover of all known television stations in Ukraine, and people hailed it as the best television ever), but I quite enjoyed what I watched of season 3. My brother, being a big fan back then, bought this game before I even had a PS2, and it’s actually not a bad little package. The gameplay offers no unique surprises, but it captures the atmosphere of the TV show frighteningly well – the movie scenes genuinely look like scenes from the actual show, recreated with PS2-quality 3D models! If that’s not a selling point, I don’t know what is.

But I’m not here to waffle about the game, though (I’ll probably review it the next time I update Games I Own, Like & Hate) – I’m here to talk about a glitch.

“We’re like the world’s gayest ninjas!”

Lost Planet 2 finished its rental yesterday. I was originally going to write my thoughts on it and ultimately I was finding it hard to make notes, but then I went into town and got the first instalment and two other games as part of a three-for-£20 offer in GAME. I’ll largely be talking about the sequel since it’s the one I sunk three days into and the other I’ve barely dipped my toe into it, but heck, why not talk about ’em both and make things confusing?

The Deadening of the Deaded: Ultra Dead

Friday, November 19, 2010 at 11:55 am Comments (2)

Would you believe me if said I actually finally had an update after so many months of being a completely lazy arse face? If so, would you believe me if I said it was a large, extravagant update that totally makes up for my multi-month absence? If so, ha! It’s just a Random Action Hour update. Yeah, even I wanted a bigger update, but it’s either churn one out now or wait another five years before I realise what a good work ethic is.

I have not been up to much excitement this week. Really about the only interesting things were the ways I totally wasted my time, and a couple of things I watched.

With additional dialogue by William Shakespeare

Monday, June 28, 2010 at 5:11 pm Comments Off on With additional dialogue by William Shakespeare

I began watching the first series of Blackadder a week or so ago and finished the last episode tonight. Although I’m not as familiar with the series as I’d like to be, I positively love Blackadder Goes Forth, and I always love seeing how series can start off so humbly. The series truly shines with its razor-sharp wit and punchy dialogue, and it truly makes the best out of having three characters traipse around a single set for half the episode.

The first series isn’t like that.
