(no subject)

That was a pretty good weekend. Started off with booze, pizza and Kingdom of Heaven on Friday with the re-enactment lot. Saturday I wasted playing Fahrenheit which is an utterly mental game. The control system bugs me a tad, but in some ways it's a lot less taxing doing the action sequences than, say, the Silent Hill series.

Collapse ) Playing the game meant I skipped out on food for most of the day, so I pigged out on pizza and watched The Chronicles of Riddick with darklittlefox. He is such a ninja - definitely looking forward to getting more of his films.

On Sunday I went to "fight club" and had a few bouts against gmplatypus, a few goes in the circle of treachery and then wussed out and watched. On the way back I bought Shadow of the Colossus too which occupied most of my afternoon. I don't think it's as immersive as Ico, but it's damn good fun trying to work out how to scrabble up the side of this mahoosive beastie so you can stick a sword in it's head.

I also watched Hercules in New York which is truely an awful film. So awful you have to watch it just to laugh at it. The fight scenes are a joke - especially the one where Arnie is fighting a (guy in a) bear (suit). And they've got most of the names wrong too. Most of the gods' names they used were the Roman versions despite them claiming to be greek.

Tonight should be interesting. It's the last elections for the year - GameSoc. It'll be interesting to see how it pans out and whether any of the renegade chess players show up and try to take over.
