Recently I've been trying to decide if life goes by too quickly, with far too little time for all the stuff I want to do or if it is an endless drudgery where loneliness and horror never seem to end. I'm not sure... maybe both. Anyway on with the nerd crap I use to fill my time.
Trip and I watched The Machine Girl tonight. It had a certain B movie charm, with lots of over the top gore and bad acting. Basically it's about a Japanese schoolgirl who tries to avenge her brother who was killed by a Yakuza's son. She loses an arm in the process and straps a machine gun to it and carnage ensues. I'm gonna say foot massage for the gore and Meh. for the overall package. Basically some of the scenes are worth watching again, but watching the entire thing over is highly unlikely.
I got Ninja Gaiden 2 from Gamefly and tried it out last night. I'm playing the lesser difficulty, because I'm not a total masochist. It's not bad except for the godawful camera. Combat moves fast and I find myself hacking enemies that are always just off the screen and that gets annoying fast.
Also picked up Space Invaders Extreme for the DS and that's interesting. It's a new take on an old favorite and I'm digging it. I always loved that type of game from Space Invaders to Galaga to Megamania and this holds up.
I finished reading Little Green Men and it really picked up there when I gave it a chance. Buckley really knows how to throw in tasty little tidbits of satire that make you stop reading because you're laughing so hard. (foot massage)
