Snuck up on 3 times. YOU HAVE LEARNED NOTHING!
Finally saw The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. It’s fun, but it was like Peter Jackson flipped through the book and just started going fanfic all over the place. I guess the Hobbit is so vague that he felt like he could fill in the holes however he wanted… and ignore not holes altogether as he saw fit. Be that as it may, at least it doesn’t feel like a fairy tale, or a kids movie. It’s more like a teen shipping fantasy.
I decided to play a little bit of Mass Effect 3 the other night, just to see if it needed updates and stuff, so I’d be ready if I got to a point where I didn’t want to play fire Emblem anymore. It’s been, like, a year and a half, or something, since I played 2. i was a little lost at first, but I aclimated quickly enough. I’m still not a very good shot, but my team makes up for it. The leveling system was also a bit foreign seeming to me, but I expect I’ll figure it out soon enough. The story gets intense pretty fast and I was quickly overtaken by a moment where I wasn’t sure I could save a team member or if it was scripted. I eventually looked it up just to see, because I felt like if it was a test of skill that I failed. Turns out it was scripted.
I’m going to be doing that a lot. I can harldly stand playing a game to finish that I “broke” early on. Anyway I got enough to see that I wasn’t going to dislike the actual game mechanics, so I can come back to it anytime later now.
