Pirates 3 comes roaring across the screen and just looks more suited for the summer multiplex than 2′s over hokey humor and hamster ball effects. The story actually holds up nicely considering there are times when you’ve got 50 actors all with speaking lines, and Johnny Depp gets plenty of time to act with himself. Pretty well done, nice atmosphere and its Pirates! A plus!
O.k. should be mostly caught up, Ill be back on here regular for a while. Some things that piqued my interest this week,
food poisioning, nintendo media summit, B.P.R.D., LOst theories, The fall tv lineup, and a wonderful store in downtown Iowa City White Rabbit. It’s all local artists, t-shirts, prints and music and ts really a awesome store. Go check it out.
Just beat Super Paper Mario for the wii and it ends with a sweet if not corny way. Now the Wii will go dark until somebody releases something Im interested in playing for it. Of course Nintendo has things coming but the third party stuff is just kind of subpar so far don’t you think?
Picked up The Fountain and Pan’s Labrything on DVD today both of which I highly recommend.
O.k. when I got my Wii I was so excited for the new way to play and Zelda was freaking fantastic. I broke down a while later and got a 360 for all the fancy graphics and larger style games. Guess what? I’ve only been playing the old games availble through the download service Live Arcade. And it is Awesome. Playing TMNT arcade again with four other people is great. Playing a bout of worms for world domination? Great. Playing UNO. Werid but great.
And this wenesday MS is giving us a free sidescrolling 2-d shooter Aegis Wing that up to four people can play at once. Im in love with a service and its LIve Arcade. It’s sad because as much promise as the Wii’s Virtual COnsole had/has the lack of online really is killing some of the multiplayer classics.
