Japanese Horror.

Ah yes PC games.

I currently play MoHaa D2/BW BFME Planetside and soon SC:CT.

IF anyone also plays these games and would like to play with me, message me.

The Ring 2 will be out on the 18th(?) and I am a big Fan of japanese horror. I've never really liked most western themed horror movies. Something about them seems rather cheap and somewhat repititave. The same can be said for japanese horror, in a way, As to the american viewer most have strange little girls out to kill everyone. I watch alot of japanese horror movies that haven't and probably won't make it here. Of course the american versions look alot better but in some ways the original is better due to no story cuts and the like. The Exception is Juon or The Grudge in america. Both versions of this movie are spectacular. Juon is easily the scariest movie I've ever seen. I'm not much of a person to be scared and I'm not scared of Juon. In terms of a movie sense it is the scariest movie I've ever seen, by this I mean it accomplishes everything a horror movie should. You'll think about it later and maybe more than that, you might actually look around before you do things or go places in your own house.

Some other notable j-horror titles are Suicide Circle, Big Eye and dark waters.
Suicide circle is the most unique out the three. It's very...disturbing to the weak minded. It starts off with about 50 students jumping onto some tracks of a bullet train. Of course they die and the news reports that there is so much human grease the train couldn't stop...Awesome huh? I'm not a fan of excessive violence or gore and it doesn't show them get mauled.

That's enough for now but I plan to talk more on the subject later.

Kessen III

I just got Kessen III today and am so far impressed. I have been a fan of the series and loved the first one and thought the second was decent. Some of the more noticeable changes include battle selection. This allows a more non-linear game.
You control units on the battlefield in a strange way, It's almost like an action game but with strategy elements. It works very well. Equipping characters is also a welcomed edition to the series, as it adds more than just mindless fighting.

You play as the Oda Nobunaga, in most games he is revered as a villain but it seems to show us a different story in K3.You start off as a young lord defending your realm that is constantly under attack. I won't give way to too much, so as not to ruin the game for others. Thus far the Story is very intriguing and has held my attention for most of the game. I'm about 7 hours in and I'm not bored yet, so I think it was a good purchase.

In other news, I can't wait for March. So many good games and of course the PsP. My current list of wants is

DBZ Sagas
Dynasty Warriors 5
Musashi Legend
God of War
Tekken 5(although it will be out the 25th)
SW:republic commando

And probably some more that I've forgotten. My PsP will be coming with Twisted Metal, MGA , and Rengoku.

This weekend I'm going to go see Constantine, everyone says it's good. Keanu is a fairly good actor and I expect that it might be a let down from other people's impressions but hopefully not by much.

That's all for now.
