  1. Pacific Rim. I would say it caught the essence of the mecha-genre perfectly, tho understandably it got towned down to suit Hollywood`s definition of a 12+ action movie (I would`ve really liked it if they touched the psychological side of becoming one in mind with another human being more), but still the movie managed to leave me with a satisfied feeling. The visual effects were quite good as well. So I would recommend it, if you liked the genre.

      I liked it a lot, though I hear you and agree.

      Definitely worth your monies. Watch it at the theater, preferebly with lots of friends.

      ...and what I meant by towned down was toned down. Oh well... and yes, this activity is definitely improved with friends. :P

  2. Arrrggh, EA I friggin` hate you! I purchased Battlefield 3 Premium Edition on Sunday and I got the Limited Edition version instead... Great. I`ve been trying to connect to their Costumer Service, but it`s nearly impossible to do so. Fuckin joke... and they wonder why people opt out to pirating their games...

      It's better than Origin, BLöDSKääL. XD

      Funniest thing is, when you get to EA customer service, it's run by bots.

      It`s not exactly bots, it`s just they use pre-scripted sentences. Lazy bastards.

  3. What Are You Listening To?

    I can`t wait for the new album!
  4. One of the greatest tribute videos of the ME-universe I`ve ever seen. Beautiful.

  5. God, this Steam Holiday Sale is killing me... my wallet is crying.

  6. What Are You Listening To?

    This is beautiful. Chill at it's best... I love it.
  7. What Are You Listening To?

    The vibe is so good...
  8. Guess That Anime

    Leg fetish? I wonder if anybody will be able to guess this with only this picture.
  9. What is love, baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more...

      We're bad but we're rich, as long as people give us money we'll keep on trucking!!!

      This is why I've stopped supporting them. I seriously wish more gamers stopped buying games over hype alone and looked at the business practice they're supporting. But alas, I guess that's too much to ask of this generation.

      I haven't bought an EA game since the 007 games on the Gamecube other than the new SSX. Both EA and Bank of America deserve to be labeled as the worst companies in the US. Thank god I didn't become one of their customers lol.
