I have to say that Maximo: Ghosts to Glory is one of the most challenging games I've played in a while. I would literally go back to the very first level quite often because it was the easiest level whereI could rack up my coins and lives. Once you progress beyond the first world, you're in for a world of hurt. Especially the last world where frustration is a normal side effect. The only thing that doesn't make any sense at all is that the final boss was a breeze. SO EASY! However, I did like scary environment in the final boss level, very cool. I actually beat this game back in April, so I've been playing many others since then.
Shadow of the Colossus was next in line. I started playing it and really enjoyed it. I've already beat 5 of the Colossus, but I've put it back on the shelf for now. I don't know why either because the game is a blast, the graphics are FANTASTIC (especially in 480p widescreen), and the Colossus are just plain frightening with their towering size.
I decided to start a new franchise on Madden 07. I ended up playing through like the year 2013, but I've since put Madden back on the shelf. I started playing Tiger Woods 07 Online. I was doing pretty good too. It seemed like each night I would play 3 or 4 rounds and I would win most of them. I ended up putting Tiger back on the shelf too.
Now I am currently playing Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. I'm addicted like crazy. I'm already in San Fierro making some money. The only complaint I have is that too many missions have you traveling across the entire region and it gets a little boring.
Well, here's the usual:
Knocked Up - I heard it was hilarious before I saw it, but I didn't think it was as funny as everyone made it seem. Still really good though
Shooter - Not bad, pretty good story, but a little predictable
The Contractor - Wesley Snipes just isn't what he used to be, but the movie still wasn't bad for being Direct-to-Video
The Money Pit - This is a classic comedy with Tom Hanks. I loved it when I was a kid and still love it today
Predator - The g/f had never seen it before, so we watched it. Great classic
Black Hawk Down - I own this movie and already watched it a couple times before, but it's just so awesome. I had to watch it again
Tears of the Sun - I really liked this movie the first time I watched it, but even though I own it, I didn't think it was as great this time around
Cars - I finally saw this and thought it was pretty good
Patriot Games - Never seen it before until a couple months ago. Not bad for an older movie, but it's certainly nothing memorable
I actually think I'm going to stop doing the "Music Lately" part because not enough new stuff comes out that I actually like a whole lot of. It's always just the same old bands that I like, so I'm going to give up this part for now.
