I suppose it might help if I actually had some basic topic that I was writing about, but I don’t. Just another personal update.

So first off, I updated the To-do list with some more movies I’d like to see, plus crossed off a few that I have seen. With all my usual TV shows on hiatus since before Christmas I’ve been filling all my time with movies. Just since Christmas I’ve watched 11 movies that I can think of, only 3 of which were even on my list. And since I know you’re all just dying to know how I’ve been wasting my time lately, I will list them:

  • Pineapple Express (better than I expected)
  • The Rundown (older, but still pretty good)
  • The House Bunny (it… had it’s moments)
  • Tropic Thunder (also better than I expected)
  • Bangkok Dangerous (not as good as I expected)
  • Burn After Reading (it was… different)
  • Smokin’ Aces (not bad)
  • Wanted (not bad, but not as good as I expected)
  • Hellboy 2 (not bad, not awesome, but not bad)
  • Batman Begins (petty good, rather enjoyed it)
  • The Incredible Hulk (really enjoyed this one)

Second, I’ve played through and beaten Chrono Trigger for the DS. I’ve collected two endings so far (the standard one, and the programmers’ ending). I haven’t really touched on the two extra dungeons, although I hear they aren’t really much to write home about anyway. I really enjoyed playing it again, I don’t know what it is about it but I just enjoy the game to death. Considering I played through the SNES cart like a hundred times (all my characters level 99, all the stats maxed out, etc) I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised, and unlike some people whining that they didn’t update the graphics, etc, I am glad they didn’t do so. I’m more a fan of the oldstyle 2D sprites than, say, the new look for Final Fantasy 3/4. About the only thing they could have done to make the game better IMHO was add some of the content that was allegedly cut from the original release, but what I’ve heard may have only been rumours anyway, meaning there was no trimmed content.

Either way, I really enjoyed it, even if the only major change to the game was the rewritten/re-translated dialogue.

Thirdly, my food is ready and I have to work tonight, so I’m going to call it quits for now. I didn’t really have anything more pertinent to talk about anyway (do I ever?), so I’m just going to leave you with a YouTube playlist of several videos of my adorable nephew.
