    Speaking of Bioware. I wish Jade Empire would get a sequel. The rock, paper, scissors gameplay wasn't the best, so they should modify combat a bit, IMO. But the story was excellent. And unlike KOTOR, where there were enough hints that the big twist wasn't a total shock, I didn't see Jade Empire's coming at all.

    And I loved the theme music :D

    @CT-867-5309 I don't just listen to and respect your opinions. Your opinions are my opinions! How would the world function if we didn't listen to you, CT?

    In regards to BioWare, I'd actually like to see some new IP. We've got one team making a third Dragon Age and another making a fourth Mass Effect. While I definitely want those games, and those stories, I'd like something new to surprise me.

    No problemo. I dunno about best at using villains but Power Rangers uses villains better than TCW did alot of the time. I haven't seen much of Green Lantern TA and I liked Thundercats 2011. Transformers Prime was my 2nd favorite animated action series on TV after TCW. I'm excited for Predacons Rising. I really don't watch alot of TV except for animated stuff and stuff of Animal Planet, Nat Geo, Science Channel, Discovery... you get the picture. I've recently started on Tron: Uprising which is pretty cool so far.

    Yeah I liked Avatar: TLB and Batman Beyond is awesome.

    Cool, Amazon delivered my copy of GTA V release date and I've been playing it since. Yeah I know its lame but its the only game I've cared about in a while. I've pretty much given up on gaming and being let down by Ace Combat: Assault Horizon didn't help. So far I'm having a ton of fun with it. I just wish cars I stored and saved wouldn't randomly disappear from the garage but I'd get a racing game if I wanted to customize cars.

    I cried for Anakin.

    On the topic of cartoons, my kid is now watching Digimon Digital Monsters.

    I don't remember if I cried over Waxer or not but I do remember how sad that was.

    And OMG...Savage. :_|

    Well they really got me on Waxer, not only did I really like that clone but I was a total doofus in thinking that when Kix said Waxer was still alive he was going to be over off screen absolutely fine ready to talk. I thought Waxer would actually have a role in Carnage when I saw he had an entire design slide on the OS material for the episode. When I realized the truth, ahh man.

    And I never watched Digimon much. It wasn't a Toonami show back in the day.

    Oh well, I approve, the kids gotta get into Anime some way. Before you know it they'll be seeking out the Japanese version with subs then the never ending hunt for something new begins.

    I didn't catch that one either.

    I missed the premiere of Sleepy Hollow and I'm disappointed; I'm going to try to catch it online.

    Waiting to see if Agents of SHIELD lives up to its hype. My feeling right now is that if I like Agent May, I'll probably like the show.

    Agents of SHIELD and the season premier of South Park are pretty much my TV viewing for the week, Throw in a few episodes of Bizarre Foods and Dr. Pol. I need to watch all the new episodes of Wilfred on the DVR but just haven't yet.

    I didn't catch the Blacklist. The season premiere of Person Of Interest, Revolution, The Mentalist, The Simpsons, Once Upon A Time and the series premiere of The Crazy Ones are my TV viewing for the week + an encore of two episodes of The Mentalist season 5.

    Stargate, the extended, special edition, definitive-director's cut is about as close to Spader as I'll ever get.

    Watched a pair of animated movies recently, Rise of the Guardians and Wreck-It Ralph.

    I like Rise of the Guardians better. Finally Jack Frost is actually cool, and who can resist a dual wielding Santa Claus and an Easter Bunny with a boomerang? The Tooth Fairy was totally cute and Sandman was amusing, very eccentric. Loved seeing the Boogeyman as the villain. I saw some definite misfires, but the story was decent enough and even got me a little misty at one point. It's a fun movie that makes clever use of classic characters.

    Wreck-It Ralph seemed way too dependent on the video game gimmick, as if they expected people to go "OMG STREET FIGHTER" and be totally satisfied. Yeah, that's how old 8 bit sprites used to move. I know, I played those games. I played all of these games. A bunch of video game references does not a movie make. It's like a James Luceno Star Wars EU novel that relies way too heavily on continuity references.

    What happens to video game characters when the arcade closes is an interesting idea, but they didn't dig very deep. I liked it better when it was called Toy Story. The story was decent and more interesting to me than the video game gimmick, though the ending seemed extremely rushed. I admit the "you're my hero" moment was very touching.

    Sarah Silverman's VA saved the entire movie, imo. She was wonderful. Cute, charming, very funny. A lesser VA performance wouldn't have been able to make the character work and I would have considered the movie a failure without her. Jane Lynch and Alan Tudyk also turned in strong performances.

    Don't get me wrong, the video game stuff was slightly amusing, but it's not......it's not anything on its own.

    I saw Wreck-It Ralph couple of weeks ago. The premise of Ralph being tired of being the "bad guy" but causing a full-blown arcade shutdown if he got out of game mode, was kind of interesting. Vanellope grew on me after being really annoying in her first scene, and I loved Sergeant Calhoun.

    But I found the movie pretty "meh" overall; sort of entertaining but not one I'd watch twice. And I have no interest in the sequel they're supposedly making.

    Yeah I liked Avatar: TLB and Batman Beyond is awesome. PR used its one off villains better than TCW did a lot of the time. I like how the bad guys were given a major win on Thundercats 2011, it's a shame the separatists were never given any major wins against the main heroes like that, it would have made republic victories more of a treat. I like Transformers Prime, the show was good for villain meet ups and developing their relationships with each other. Separatist villains on TCW were handled pretty badly after Ventress left the CIS, especially since CIS leaders were no longer being used. The trouble is that Dooku and Grievous were the only main CIS villains. On the bright side Admiral Trench is back in the bonus content. An anime I Iike a lot of is Sonic X, I really like season 3 and the sonic adventure story line of season 2, have you seen Sonic X?

    Rise Of The Guardians is actually my favorite animated movie of all times. Dreamworks Animation SKG is so good at animated movie, it's because they are independents so they care more about the story.
    However I didn't liked Wreck-It Ralph like all the recent Disney movies who for me forget how to make good animated movies.

    Dreamworks had a long period between about Shrek 2 and Kung Fu Panda where everything it made was crap, which is why it took me so long to watch Kung Fu Panda and How To Train Your Dragon, since I was so ambivalent about their movies. But when I did watch them I loved them, and now I've been paying more attention to Dreamworks Animation again. (though Turbo kinda looks eh)

    I definitely enjoyed Rise of the Guardians and thought it was good (gotta love Russian Santa), but it wasn't their best. The other thing I have to give DWA credit for is their phenomenal animation quality. I was blown away by some of the stuff in HTTYD, mostly all the characters' hair. Of course, now Pixar and Disney Animation really got the amazing hair thing down as well (re. Brave and Tangled). Still, I applaud DWA for coming back strong and holding its own against these bigger contenders. Hell, even Blue Sky Studios is getting way better at making good movies, if Rio is anything to go by.

    I'm thinking about giving Kung Fu Panda a go. I'm not sure why I haven't watched it. It's got animals that know their own animal kung fu style, I watched The Matrix for less reason, it had a Keanu Reeves that knew kung fu.

    Tangled was awesome, that got me back into animated movies, which I stopped watching when I was like 10. Because I'm a Mandy Moore fan for some reason.

    Fun fact: When my middle school guidance counselors used to pester me about choosing a career path, I'd tell them I was going to be Mandy Moore's househusband just to troll them. They did not find it as amusing as I did.
