Has it bee more than a month already?
I guess I just can't promise anything anymore.
I'll update this whenever the hell I feel like it, and that's it. :P
I just dropped by to say I played Rock Band over the weekend at my brother's, and I love it. It's not the Guitar Hero killer people claim it is, as they both provide similar enough experiences, but the whole band perspective really makes it shine. For the guitar alone, though, I still think Guitar Hero is better. However, since The GH series is becoming more and more difficult in order to cater to these fucking no-life Extreme mode players, I find Rock Band more enjoyable casually.
And you can design your musicians... I made a weird female bass player named Deedee. She has a 1up mushroom on her tee. In an XBOX game. Oh the irony.
I'm finally done with Super Mario Galaxy. I got every star with both Mario and Luigi for a grand total of 242 stars. Phew, what a ride. I can now finally proclaim Super Mario Galaxy to be the greatest 3D platformer ever designed, and probably the most nicely designed game of this generation. Shigeru Miyamoto works magic. And I don't want to hear brainless Sony or XBOX fanboys say otherwise. Bitches.
I worked in a comic book store for a few years back in the day. This is where I started to despise american comic books. Cliche superheroes. Big guns and muscles. Huge boobs. Released monthly. Collectible value. Rob Liefeld and Todd McFarlane sure didn't help me like comics better back then. (that was during the comic book boom between 93 and 95)
But then I started to notice another type of comic book. Independant comics. Or smaller, creator owned comics, like what the good folk at Dark Horse used to release.
I didn't really get into them though, as I shifted my attention on manga. But the recent interest in movies based on comic books, and the oh-so wonderful Trade Paperback format made me reconsider reading some of these lesser known titles that were quite promising. Like Sandman. And Sin City. And Hellboy..
Hellboy is truly nice. Probably the most interesting american comic I've read in a while. My brother bought the books, and I borrowed them from his, curious. I really love Mike Mignola's style, and his stories are truly nice. Write more, Mike.
I just spilled the perfect mochaccino on the floor. That's 3 dollars down the drain. I'm so sad.
