Yo, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. That show is raaaaad. Best sci-fi TV show ever, PERIOD. Aight', Firefly is pretty boss. But one season? 'The ****? That's no TV show, that a freaking miniseries + a movie that came out years later. Thanks a lot Fox. Basically, if you don't know what Battlestar Galactica is, it used to be a cheesy, crappy old 70s sci-fi show (the only kind of 70s sci-fi show), then they did it again in 2003 but about a million times better.
Let's just talk about characters. There is not one corny, stereotypical character in this show. They are flawed, funny, and ****ed up all the time. If you told me this was arealityshow about real people on a space ship I would have believed you, if space ships existed. Even the robots in this game are more human than the supposedly real ones in other shows about (supposedly) real people. *jersey shore* This is also a show not afraid to:
- Beat the crap out of it's characters
- Kill it's characters
That's somethingI like, otherwise the characters come off as pansies unless they're being tortured or humiliated every episode. BSG does this and a lot more.
Also, excellent visuals and a lot of meat, ie more than one season. Four of them in fact. :) GREAT show, I give it a 10/10. Go watch it, I don't care if you don't like science fiction or not, it's incredible.
Video games are cool, and I played some. Like the Killzone 3 demo. Let me say this: Killzone 2 is good, but the controls are bad. There's a difference between weighty and being unresponsive. KZ2 was the latter. KZ3, based on that demo, is tight, snappy, weighty, and damn fine. I want that game!
I probably won't be getting KZ3 or any other games any time soon. All the cash is reserved for a certain new video game system and games for that system as well as a Pokemon thing. I don't know, whatever. I'll just watch more BSG to pass the time.
Additionally, Dragon Age: Origins on the PS3 is the most mixed game I have ever played. The story and writing is awesome, top of the line fantasy. The gameplay is garbage. Let me explain.
This is a game from Bioware. Bioware. From Bioware, I expect technical competence, tight controls, and not lame inventories. DAO is FULL of screen tearing, super-low framerates, pop-in, and janky animations. Not to mention the weird controls and party management. On the consoles, Dragon Age is not good. On the PC, Dragon Age is amazing. Final verdict? Bioware didn't try very hard with the console versions. Oh well, DA2 actually looks pretty sick.
That's all, that's my random thoughts about things. Peace out, bros
