The Heroes season finale... coulda been better

So tonight was the final episode of the only show on TV that I've been fanatical about watching.  Although the series as a whole has been outstanding, and provided excellent entertainment week after week, I can't help but feel that the season finale wasn't as crisp and stunning as it could have been. 

The end of the Armored Core era

Like a faithful dog that's gone blind in one eye and can't walk, it's time to let go and let the series move on to that big game graveyard in the sky. 

Seattle restaurant review: Phuket

For our readers in the Seattle area, I wanted to say a few quick words on what is becoming my absolute favorite Thai restaurant, Phuket.

Hard bosses and poorly-designed bosses—there's a difference

As a developer, doesn't it make more sense to leave your players feeling like they had a worthwhile ride instead of making them feel irritated and pissed by poor balance, lack of savepoints, bad design or any other misguided attempt to make the final bits of the game "challenging"? 

Talking theater in Seattle

So I'm not sure how many of you reading this out there are theater or musical fans, but I'm sure there's got to be a couple, right?  Right?!?

Dem Ol' 360 No-Download Blues

There was supposed to be a downloadable update of 4 new heroes and 4 villains (!) for the game scheduled for 4/10, but the day has come and gone and no update yet.

I stole 120 Minutes: Aeon Flux

I'll have more on this later, but at this point it's looking like Aeon Flux is a pretty good game on its own, let alone being one of the better licensed games to come down the pike.

Tapas Time!

Tango was a completely pleasurable experience and well worth the ulcer-inducing parking job I had to pull off in the small lot across the street... I think I had about an inch and a half of clearance between my car in the next, and I exited the vehicle by excluding over to the passenger side and squeezing out.  Just barely.

Why the PSP blows goat: Reason #327

Of course, this is the one day when I decide to not bring along the unwieldy PSP cord and little power brick that comes along with it.  For something with the word "portable" in its title, that plug is something that doesn't fit easily into soft carrying cases and seems to always get in the way whenever I bring it somewhere.
