Thanks to the fact that Lost, 24 and a couple of my other longtime Tivo standards are no longer with us, my DVR hasn’t been as full lately if you ignore all the repeat episodes of Hanna Montana and Wizards of Waverly Place that somehow “magically” keep getting recorded. As a result of this void in my life, I decided to record a bunch of the new shows just to check them out and see if they’re worth my time Here’s a quick rundown of my initial thoughts on a few of them: (continue reading…)
I’m still not sure why I still watch this crap even though I always say I hate it. I also don’t know why I have a habit of not blogging when my life’s entertaining and update more when I’m not getting into any fun and am staying at home wasting my time watching things like American Idol.
Those mysteries in life aside, I must say that I’m extremely disappointed with the guys so far this year. They all seem to suck and I’m not talking about in the Ryan Seacrest kind of way. None seem even remotely on the same level as Adam Lambert or that Chris guy that beat him last season cause America still hates the gays. Maybe one or two might step it up, but I’m not seeing it so far.
The good news is that I now get to watch Lost and Blue Mountain State without any commercial interruptions!
My achievement whoring has gotten me to play some pretty awful games, with Lost Via Domus being the latest such title. The only difference between this and something like, let’s say, Meet the Robinsons, is that I had a tad bit of interest in playing Lost because I’m a huge fan of the show. The fandom didn’t do much to make it an enjoyable experience, though. The controls were just too clunky and there just wasn’t that much to the game. I thought some of the characters actually looked quite good, but the gameplay was just lacking. I would say it needed more content, but that wouldn’t have helped because for most of the game I was hoping it would just end. Thankfully it did indeed end and it ended with me getting a full 1000/1000 achievement points. Sadly, I’ll probably never be able to say the same for the three games I’m playing right now for “fun” — Devil May Cry 4, GTA IV and Rainbow Six: Vegas 2.
