Daily Blogg: The Rant Unleashed


Ok folks if you haven't played the game yet GO AWAY... im serious, this is not where you want to be because beyond this point there are spoilers beyond belief.

OK on the unfortunate business of tearing this frankly amazing game apart. :(

Before I begin i will be assuming that you have completed the game and have completed at least one of the two endings, if you have not then please feel free to go to your XBOX and come back later.
For the rest of you i should explain that I frankly LOVE this game in almost every single way and am almost loath to take it apart but since im a Fanboy freak i feel it is my duty to piss all over my own fun ;)

The Farce Unleashed

Lucasarts have always been the forerunner to any starwars related game and are possibly the best suited given there closeness to the subject matter to create a fore related starwars universe game, so i gotta ask in all seriousness with all the lore whore's and fanboys with every tiny piece of SW trivia memorized could they not find anyone to fix the massive glaring continuity errors and in universe mistakes that border on Ewok level insanity?
Im not going to list all the little foibles but i think the top five should be enough to make my point.

TOP 5 TFU Fups

5. Anti ''FORCE'' fields: I cannot even begin to explain how this should not be possible in the SW universe, no living creature is immune to the force it is by definition ''in all living cells'' and therefore immutable, Nothing is immune to the FORCE! no not even droids, which nicely leads me onto...

4. Force Droids: the force is in all LIVING things...LIVING!! i mean god damn i know that droids are smart but since when could they use the force? (anyone who brings up Sparky the force droid will be shot on sight with the non canon cannon)

3. Loss of Sight = Loss of Force?: Early on in the game you blind a Jedi Master and somehow release him from his obligations to the living force... yea sorry folks i call so much bullshit on this the herd may have to do without the bull for a while so he can recover. It wouldn't be so bad if suddenly out of the blue the good general suddenly develops force sight and gains the ability to steal the Emperors lightsaber with a force pull near the end of the game!

2. The Apprentice: ok i so you start the game as one of the single biggest baddest force throwing bastards in the universe and suddenly out of nowhere about midway through the game you turn into a sniveling, whipped, wimp attempting to justify his place in the universe while whining to his pilot (girlfriend/love interest) about how hard it is to make a moral decision regarding the future of the universe when you have Darth Vader as a surrogate dad. I mean how hard it it know the 7ft tall guy with the bad chest cold jet black armor and dodgy complexion is the freaking bad guy? none the less when you finally do make a decision...

1. YOU KICK THE CRAP OUT OF DARTH VADER!!!: I was initially torn in which way i should see this act of rebellion, sadly in the end im forced to call dickery on this and point unbelieving as the biggest character in the SWU gets his ass handed to him by what appears to be a teenager in a hoodie who then to rub salt in the wound takes on the emperor 1v1. Baddass yes but i mean come on

OK im done and although it may be a tad bias i can say with a song in my heart that despite all this THE GAME KICKS ASS and i would suggest a rental to non fans if your not willing to buy it. To SW fans i would suggest going without food and grabbing onto it with both hands while grinning like an ape while you enjoy about 20 hours of SW fun and games.

and now...

Daily Blogg: World of WTF?

Well its taken me the better part of three years almost 3Gb of patches and more blood sweat and tears than frankly im willing to admit, but i finally done it.
As of 23.15 GMT on September 14th 2008 i have finally managed to level EVERY CLASS on BOTH factions covering every race in the damn game to Lv70 on Retail WoW.

....yay me....

Only one icckle problem...
...I got my replacement Wrath of the Lich King Beta Key (password and login) emailed to me this morning.

Ive already started to clone my Human Paladin and Undead Warlock so i can unlock the Deathknight on both factions (that and there the only ones with decent armor that wont embarrass me when i spawn in) so i can head North and grab the beta testing armor and weapon packs for the vendors and attempt to see exactly what this snow covered land can throw at me.

In the words of a great man: Im going for a walk, I may be some time.

Movie Night: Pineapple Express (2008)

Hey there folks and welcome back to Movie Night here at Aries antics, tonight im keeping it simple with a good old fashioned comedy romp Pineapple Express (2008)

So anyway the film starts off in the year 1937 in a secret underground government laboratory where tests are being performed on the effects of marijuana. Private Greg B. Miller (Bill Hader) is a subject in a test to decide if marijuana should be illegal. Miller, obviously high, begins to insult the government and his superiors. As a result, the government deems marijuana illegal and quickly "disposes of" Private Miller.

Jumping to the present day, Dale Denton (Rogen), a 25 year-old process serving stoner, visits his girlfriend Angie (Amber Heard) at her high school and argues about accepting an invitation to eat dinner with her family. Next, he visits his equally stoned dealer, Saul Silver (Franco), to buy bud. Saul offers him a rare and potent strain of marijuana called Pineapple Express alleged to be “the dopest dope [you]’ve ever smoked". After making his purchase, Dale agrees to smoke a 'cross-shaped' joint with Saul before leaving. He then leaves his apartment, smokes more, and ends up in front of the house of the next person he is supposed to serve, Ted Jones (Gary Cole), who Saul has mentioned as a drug lord.

While waiting outside in his car smoking a joint made of Pineapple Express, Dale witnesses Ted and a corrupt female police officer, Carol Brazier (Rosie Perez) commit murder. As Dale panics, he accidently throws his roach out the window and leaves the scene, while hitting two parked cars in the process (one being Carol's police cruiser). As Ted and Carol run outside to find Dale driving away, they determine that he saw the murder and are able to classify the roach he threw out the window as the rare Pineapple Express. Dale drives back to Saul's in a panic to ask Saul about Ted and eventually concludes that he could be traced back to Saul by the rare Pineapple Express (Saul is the only dealer who has it, and Ted is the only supplier). Dale and Saul leave the apartment. Meanwhile, Ted is determined to catch the witness of the murder so he dispatches two of his thugs, Matheson (Craig Robinson) and Budlofsky (Kevin Corrigan), so that they could find and dispose Dale and Saul. You can pretty much guess what happens when wasted guys and a pile of superweed end up chased by a druglord so im gonna stop the spoilers here.

As usual in linking rather than embedding for ease of viewing, so grab your popcorn copy pasta the link and enjoy the film!
