Just got back from Video Games Live in San Jose. It was really fun! All the tickets were sold out, so we had a packed house full of pale gamer nerds. I wish they had played more Medal of Honor music though. Ah well.

Got to hear Metal Gear music in full glory. They had a guy dressed up as "Random Bad Guy Soldier" walking back and forth across the stage. Once the music really started up, he flicked a switch on his chest and a bright exclamation point appeared above and behind his head, just like in the game. It was hilarious :-D. People loved the Video Game Pianist's cool solo Final Fantasy performance. Everyone gave him a big standing ovation. I wish I had brought a camera.. coulda gotten pics with the Metal Gear guy, along with a cool lookin' cosplay fan who came as Samus Aran. Samus Aran girl, if you read this blog, call me! Hubba hubba. Rawr rawr. You can scan me with your visor any day of the week, if you know what I mean.. heh heh heh... (wait, that makes no sense..)

update: Gamespot has an article on the VGL performance.

Haven't done this in a while...

Today's High Score is... Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's track for Batman Begins: "Molossus". I've recently tried playing this soundtrack while I play Warcraft 3, and it works great. In fact, it's the only game I can think of that the soundtrack works for. The soundtrack has a kind of.. menacing industrial undead sound to it, which fits nicely when playing as the Undead in the game. Pick the Dreadlord as your hero and you've got your Batman. :)

Selling my copy of Battlefront 2 for PC for $24.99. Buy it, you bastards!

Ahem.... that is all.

This fan-made lightsaber duel film is pretty cool. It features the music from the film Dark City, which I put up a clip of a while back.
Midterms! ACK!

Not much new to report. Still an unemployed mercenary. Guess people just don't need much killin' to be done these days. Shame.

This month is full of games... crazy amounts of games. Just got Onimusha 4 for the PS2. The 2 player co-op mode is great fun, though the camera can be troublesome. Metal Gear 3 Subsistence, with online play, comes out this week. IGN gave it a 9.8. Then there's Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. If it's good, I may have to upgrade to a GeForce 6600 GT. Maybe I can "snipe" it off Ebay using this Auction Sentry program I just found out about.

I've also been watching a lot of Naruto episodes. I'm far too old to be watching such shows, but the drama and action of the show is really well done. It's a helluva lot better than what passes for entertainment in last night's episode of 24, anyway. Ugh.

Those BF2 1.2 missiles are frakkin' accurate. Just a bit too accurate. FRAK!

OK, guess I'm not going to watch Ultraviolet. It has a 0% rating on Rottentomatoes.com, and it's apparently so bad that RT forum users have felt inclined to take pictures of their feces and post the pics on the forum, in order to compare the movie's quality to a tangible object.

Blech.

Some TV reminders:
The season finale for Battlestar Galactica airs tomorrow (Friday, March 3rd) on SciFi channel.
And there's a 2-hour 24 on FOX on Monday. I think both shows can appeal to a great deal of the video game players out there, so check out these shows if you haven't already.

24 recently had a video game come out. Unfortunately, early reviews are saying the game is quite poor. Sucks.



In other news... I've been playing Super Dimension Fortress Macross for PS2, an import game from Japan. It's quite awesome. :)

Finally, tomorrow is the premiere of the film Ultraviolet. From talking to people at school, no one seems impressed with the commercials, and I guess I don't blame them. They look cheesy! But I'm probably going to see this over the weekend, as the creator of the film also made Equilibrium, probably one of the best action movies I've ever seen. This guy's movies are all about over-the-top action scenes, and hopefully Ultraviolet delivers what Equilibrium did.
