New games play'd. New movies watch'd. Reviewing them both.

1) Final Fantasy II

This game is a pain in the ass. There are random battles everywhere, the difficulty is all over the place, it assumes you know things and there are some generally bad mechanics overall. But... I kind of liked it to be honest. There's a certain sense of accomplishment you get from these types of games that's pretty satisfying. The story in general is pretty bare bones but it was just interesting enough to make me want to know what was going to happen next. The soundtrack and neat leveling system were the highlights of the game.

Final Score: 8.0/10

2) Batman: Arkham Asylum

Oh, hell yes. Almost everything about this game is amazing. The pacing is practically perfect and makes you hate putting the controller down. The story while a little crazy is pretty interesting and fun. The exploration was probably my favorite part. I never felt like going off the beaten path would be a waste of time. Pretty much if you think there's a hidden Riddler trophy in that corner, there is. The only disappointments lie in it's conclusion. A rushed end cutscene and a dissatisfying face off with you-know-who highlighted the only weak points of this fantastic game.

Final Score: 9.5/10

3) Halo 3: ODST

This series once again proves that it has a fantastic formula that still works even with a different atmosphere. The game is a lot of fun, there isn't a whole lot more to say. It's without doubt the toughest Halo game yet and the OSDTs just don't take shot a plasma like the good ol' Spartan does. The pacing is a little off with some shootouts lasting far too long, and there are some rough polish issues here and there. Oh, also, best Halo score ever.

Final Score: 9.0/10

4) Rob Zombie's Halloween II

Simply put, this is one of the most vicious and brutal horror films ever made. As a hardened horror vet, this movie left me a little shaken. The movie does a fantastic job of instilling a sense of dread and fear upon you through its assault on the senses. I personally enjoyed this... others may not. I love horror movies and this was a well made horror movie!

Final Score: 9.0/10

5) Zombieland

Seriously, go see it. One of the best zombie movies ever made. Some of the most fun I've had in a movie theatre.

Final Score: 10/10
