We went out and saw the new Star Wars tonight. My general reaction was something like Principal Skinner in that one Simpsons episode with the diorama contest.
[Gasp] “Pre-packaged Star Wars characters still in their display box?!” “Why, it’s Luke, and Obi-Wan, and my favourite, Chewy! They’re all here!”
I loved the way they approached the visuals, everything just felt right. I won’t talk about the story because I don’t want to ruin anything for latecomers. Very fun, though. Lots of pew, pew, pews.
On another note...
Since Christmas I've been playing the new Fallout game whenever I turn the Playstation on. Naming your own character can be so fun sometimes. I remember playing Final Fantasy 7 as a kid and loving the fact that if you named your guy Buttpants every character would forever refer to you in dialogue as Buttpants.
