"You're an ugly mother, too!"

Today's Manga: Trigun Maximum 13, Me and my Brothers 6, Higurashi 1, Getbackers: Infinity Fortress 2, Zatch Bell 22, Yumekui Kenbun Nightmare Inspector 5, Gakuen Alice 5, and Sgt. Frog 16.

I bought Superbad on Blu-ray and, of course, Prince of Persia, which you already know was an adventure. But how big an adventure it was surprised even me... slightly. I wasn't entirely surprised to get there and see no copies of the limited edition for PS3 on the shelves, nor was I entirely surprised when I went ot the counter and they couldn't find it either. The computer said they had a copy, presumably BECAUSE I'd preordered it, but they didn't know where it was. It took quite a bit of searching before they finally found two copies in the returns drawer. Well, they finally started the procedure to sell it, but she totaled it out before scanning my reward card or my Blu-ray, so she had to get a supervisor to void it and ring up both items in a single transaction so I could use my coupon. It took several tries to scan them, and she couldn't get it to scan either the reward card or the coupon... she had to enter those manually. It also took my credit card two swipes to work, but that was just icing on the cake.

Now that I have it, I decided to give Prince of Persia a try. I had to update the system to access the "Exclusive Content", which appeared to be an annoying way to reboot the game until I finally tried selecting the "Extras" option before pressing Triangle. That finally led me to a signup screen for Ubisoft, and creating an account gave me the Altair skin at last. Aside from that, the gameplay... I've got a really, really long review of the game in here.Collapse )

We had our first major snowfall of the year today, which made driving a bit of a chore. Hopefully, it won't come back tomorrow, because Curt's driving to Kettering, but I should be able to get by with just a trip to Wall Market for food, a humidifier, and maybe a new shirt for work. Speaking of which, I should probably put my laundry away before bed.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
