What I’ve Been Doing 17 Sept 2012 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

The kind of result your can expect if you join my crew (Photo by hyperion327)

It was a really video game-y week with (nearly) finishing Mark of the Ninja and the Friday launch of FTL: Faster Than Light and I don’t think it’ll get any less video game-y with Borderlands 2 coming out tomorrow. I’m actually glad FTL didn’t come out until Friday because I would have gotten nothing done otherwise…

Movies

The Words – The movie tries to be poignant and interesting as it examines the consequences of decisions that none of the characters suffer very much for making. In fact, the framing device is clumsy and not nearly explored enough so no one cares that Quaid was really Cooper. No one understands why Olivia Wilde is so obsessed with Quaid either. Additionally, it suffers from that problem where this book, The Words, is supposedly an excellent piece of fiction, but the narration which is presumably prose coming straight out of the book is stunted, weak, and unimpressive.

TV

Glee – Tiffany and I both agree that the new cast was just what this show needed to reinvigorate it. The new Puckerman is a really stupid conceit…I mean, I turned to Tiffany and said, “This guy is totally Puckerman” and then…SPOILER ALERT! He’s his half brother. They don’t reject any ideas in the Glee writer’s room, do they? Oh, the lunch lady stuff was dumb too.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians – I don’t want to talk about it…

Misc. HGTV Shows – Neat houses on display, but the renovations seem to cost way too much for any of them to be feasible.

Cupcake Wars – MLS Trophy thing. The green tea cupcake looked neat.

Music

Ben Prunty’s soundtrack for FTL is pretty good. Check it out if you like synth-y, sci-fi space music.

Books

Heathen yet again…

Video Games

Mark of the Ninja – Almost done S-Ranking this game. Just need to finish it on NG+, but FTL is so much fun and Borderlands 2 comes out Tuesday…Maybe I’ll finish it while a Dan Plays episode is rendering.

FTL: Faster Than Light – A game with the perfect structure for recording and playing. I’m really loving the whole LP thing and this game is solid. Go get it at their site for DRM-free versions on every platform.
