So I started up the demo of Sleeping Dogs yesterday, and as you do, I attacked the first person I saw. Apparently a 1-2 and a sidekick is enough to kill the average civilian, who knew?
The acting, I thought, was the best of the series. The fact that you didn't enjoy it is nothing against you. Again, "subtle" and "mature" are words that come to mind. That doesn't mean you're immature, but that the mood of this piece was very articulate and complex. You had to be able to read between the lines. Remember, the contrast between Vaan and the other characters was a major theme of the story.
Think of it like Last of the Mohicans, compared to Wall-E. Wall-E was dependent on slapstick humor and caricature, whereas LOTM used music, the environment, and the contrast between cultures to show you things about the story that a less mature audience isn't trained to see.
FF12 was a political intrigue. By its very nature this kind of story tends to be very dry and subtle. Subtlety in storytelling forces you to plumb the depths of the story itself, instead of doing it for you. It's both more difficult to do and more difficult to appreciate.
Sometimes you want a beer, sometimes you want a martini. I enjoyed this martini.
Why did no one tell me Transformers: War for Cybertron was a legit game?
Currently playing Skyrim on the clock. God do I love working from home!
So I just Pre-Ordered the X-Com: Enemy Unknown remake and I've been watching trailers since I got home. I'm pretty psyched about this game, but there's still some doubt in the back of my mind.
