  1. It would be hilarious if it was devoid of any color
  2. I’m almost thinking Adonalsium will be reunited before Mistborn Sci Fi, like at the end of Stormlight 10, starts but Dragonsteel will reveal why he had to be shattered to begin with, either evil or just plain making things worst, so the goal of the final Mistborn books will be about getting rid of him for good.
  3. Finished Kingdom Hearts III ReMIND last night and the endings (this is a series where you get ending after ending. KH3 gives us the ending, the epilogue ending, the secret ending, the ReMIND ending, the Limit Cut ending and the 2 endings of Secret Episode) just leave me more confused where this story is going. I’ve never really been confused by stuff in this series but ReMIND got me on the confused train everyone seems to be on. Putting the story elements left to pick up in spoiler since it involves the Secret Episode Whatever happens this series is taking a turn left field for the next game.
  4. Finished Assassin’s Creed Unity a couple days ago. Good but I didn’t like that the French Revolution stuff was mostly stuck behind the Co-Op missions, almost like the Revolution was a footnote in Arno’s life. Dead Kings was a little better the way that went. Now I’m doing Kingdom Hearts ReMIND and I’m enjoying the additional content. Also befuddled for the first time in this series with the excuse of why Sora needed to relive the entire Keyblade Graveyard sequence. Currently doing the Limit Cut and Premium Menu stuff and there’s no way I’m going to beat all the bosses of Limit Cut since I did a “let’s see what they’re like” look and beat 5 of them with ease (including one people are having lots of trouble with) but was having loads of trouble with the rest so I’m trying to use the Premium Menu to try making it easier for me (I’m not a superboss player so I don’t usually do these but there’s story stuff involved here) and so far I’m getting a kick out of killing everything, including bosses, with one hit! Now when it comes to the Limit Cut bosses I haven’t faced yet I’m going to turn the cheats off to test them before using the Menu on them to unlock the secret boss.
  5. Almost done with Assassin’s Creed Unity. Just finishing up a couple of the Co-Op missions in solo mode (this is where most of the story of the French Revolution is held like the Women’s March, the execution of Danton and the raiding of Mirabeau’s crypt along with some Templar killings like Marcourt at a tournament) finish the story itself and do Dead Kings. After that I can get ready for Kingdom Hearts ReMIND.
  6. Encountered one of the worst viewpoint synchronizations in Assassin’s Creed Unity. The spot was on Le Bastille and I went around it at the base trying to find a path up and the available paths only led to windows so I went inside and then walked through the halls fighting off Radicals, I think, before coming back to where I first started and noticed the staircase kind of hidden. Went up the stairs to a courtyard where I looked for a way up and the windows only went halfway up the wall so I entered this other, killed a couple more enemies before I finally found a blown out wall that allowed upward travel.
  7. Who do you think will become worldhoppers in future books? It would be so neat if Jasnah became a worldhopper, maybe working with Khriss on Shard studies?, especially to see how she’d be like with the cultures of other worlds. Shai would also be another good one to see.
  8. Playing Assassin’s Creed Unity now
  9. Finishing FF12 Strong Mode. I’m really not going to 100% the game since I’m not going to attempt traversing the Subterra for one magic and two hunts. Going to take a break from gaming until Kingdom Hearts 3 ReMIND comes out on the 23rd.
  10. Not currently watching these but they are films/shows I got for Christmas: Teen Wolf Too, Transformers Animated Complete Series, Ultra Q (the preseries Ultraman show that starts the show. Think of it like the episodes before Barnabas arrives in Dark Shadows) and the Universal Horror Collection volume 1 which contains The Black Cat, The Raven, The Invisible Ray and Black Friday. What these four have in common is they all star Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. I found it funny how no one proofread to see if the information was the same between the box and the case!
  11. Had a small bit of badness while in Florida for Christmas. On Christmas Eve there was this kid that was so badly behaved I was thinking ‘why is he going on the same boat as me?’ since my mom and I were taking the boat/water taxi from Hollywood Studios to Epcot. This kid was supposedly 8 but he was kicking and hollering, to the point that one wishes someone would shut the brat up, was in a stroller and the mother claims he acts that way because he doesn’t take too well being out at night. It was already 2-3 hours past sunset at that point so if that’s the case why were they only going back at that time? The father apparently had gone back earlier with the other children so why didn’t he take this brat with him if he only acts like that after dark? The mom also claimed the motion of the boat would soothe him but I could still hear him making a fuss from the other end of the boat. I don’t know what that kids deal is but the parents need to put him on something. Then on Christmas Day I woke up just fine but when I went to eat breakfast I just couldn’t manage more than a few bites. As soon as I had stood up my stomach started going like I needed to puke so I rushed to the nearest toilet where it turned out I had bad diarrhea. My mom and I had planned to go to Hollywood Studios that day to do the Star Wars stuff but with me needing to go to the bathroom every so often I didn’t want to chance getting on a ride and needing the toilet halfway in. This lasted for a couple more days before it started getting normal. My mom thinks it was bad oil from the fish and chips we ate the night before.
  12. This. Khriss is my favorite worldhopper and it would be nice to see her pop up somewhere in Roshar whether it’s in the main stories, the interludes (maybe have one be from her perspective but only reveals it’s her at the end) or even in the epilogue with Hoid.
  13. 3 days before my birthday! What a great present! If the book tour doesn’t come near me then I’m thinking of doing the midnight release in Salt Lake.
  14. I got Warriors of the Altaii by Robert Jordan and Side Jobs by Jim Butcher. I plan to read Side Jobs when each story takes place when I do the other books so I’ll be picking this book up a few times.
  15. Oh man, Square Enix accidentally released the new trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3 reMind and has confirmed it’s coming out January 23!
  16. Just beat FF12. Now I’m going to go in with New Game + where this time I’ll do the side stuff with the Japanese voice acting and at 4x speed.
  17. I’m back from vacation in Florida. It’s good as always though there were some rude people on the Disney Cruise this time and some people getting a little too intimate with booze. Went to B&N for Black Friday and got these items: Doctor Who The Macra Terror (had no idea it was out here already so had to get it), A Storm of Swords, White Sand 3, Starsight, the leatherbound Jurassic Park duology and the leatherbound of Christie’s And Then There Were None with a couple other stories. When I got home my birthday present, Godzilla the Showa Years, from my sister had arrived (technically I bought it but she sent the gift cards for it) and it’s going to be interesting how I’m going to store this since it’s pretty tall. When I went to pick up the accumulated mail from vacation my preordered Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Shattered Grid hardback had arrived as well so I’ve got quite a bit as ‘birthday’ presents.
  18. Still playing FF12 and am having a little trouble with Daedalus in Giruvegan. I keep getting him down to the final 10-20% and he decimates all my characters. Kind of wishing that they had let Reddas join for this segment of the game. Might as well go with some leveling up to try boosting my characters stat wise.
  19. Finished All Systems Red. Would’ve finished in one sitting but I kept being interrupted. It’s an interesting story that makes me want to read the other novellas in the series. Now I’m going to start on Wilds Cards by George R. R. Martin.
  20. Finished Scratchman over the weekend. Started out creepy in the first half but the second half turned into a kind of Wonderland in hell story since it got whimsy and silly. Kind of funny how people turning into scarecrows was creepier than old scratch himself. Tom Baker isn’t my favorite Doctor but I do enjoy his run but even I can see how much of a vanity project this story was and I’m not mad about that since the book was enjoyable. It was hard to figure out how this would’ve worked as a film so maybe that’s for the best. It was also obvious which parts were added for this ‘novelisation’ (can something be called that if the filmed product never came to be?) since there were scenes that couldn’t have been thought of at the time, like the Doctor meeting one of his newest bodies (when you read the descriptives it’s obvious which Doctor it is) and Sarah Jane seeing her future that includes her appearance in K-9 and Company, School Reunion and even her show. Its good if you want more Doctor Who in your life and are curious about an aborted film project. Well gonna take a short break and go All Systems Red with a certain murderbot by Martha Wells.
  21. So like the title says what’s the weirdest or strangest thing you’ve heard someone say about you? I’ll start. One of the weirdest I’ve had was a teacher at the school I work at think I was both a student and that my mom was my wife! What leaps of logic brought her to the choice of “Young enough to be in middle school but old enough to be married to someone in their 60’s”? Also the married assumption happened because apparently she’s never seen two people with the same last name and it automatically means husband and wife and I guess assumed all her students were married to their parents by her logic.
  22. Wanted to try getting the Ultima Weapon in KH1 but I was getting sick of synthesis item hunting so I decided just to go ahead and fight the final boss. Might go back to get the ultimate weapons, fight the Phantom, Ice Titan and Sephiroth and maybe attempt the Unknown but I want a break so I’m heading into FF12
  23. I got my first Criterion Collection film last night. The film is Godzilla. It was pretty good and the HD transfer is fantastic considering the original film is gone and all they have is a 35mm fine-grain master positive. They also include Godzilla, King of the Monsters which I’m finding to be dull compared to the original which I couldn’t stop watching but find myself wanting to stop watching the Americanized re-edit almost the whole time. Can’t wait to watch the supplements which consist of: 1. Commentaries for both versions provided by film historian David Kalat 2. Interviews with actors Akira Takarada and Haruo Nakajima and special effects technicians Yoshio Irie and Enzo Kaimai (these are all separate interviews but I’m listing them together like the back of the box does) 3. An interview with composer Akira Ifukube 4. A featurette detailing the photographic effects featuring special effects director Koichi Kawakita and special effects photographer Motoyoshi Tomioka 5. An interview with Japanese film critic Tadao Sato 6. An illustrated audio essay about the Daigo Fukuryu Maru which inspired the opening of Godzilla 7. Trailers for both versions of the film. There is also a 16 page booklet featuring a 6 page essay by Village Voice’s film critic J. Hoberman and a page talking about the transfers. Considering how strict Toei is with Godzilla it’s great that this set has as many supplements as it does, especially with the respect Criterion gives to the film. I am so impressed with this release that I’m now a Criterion collector now. Trying to figure out what to get next but I’m thinking of Hitchcock’s Rebecca and The Princess Bride.
  24. Has anyone put a book down, either during the reading or after finishing, because something in the pages you just read was a little much for you to continue going at that moment? So far I have two. The first was a couple different moments from A Game of Thrones. I’m currently on my second which is Fairest by Marissa Meyer. When reading the other Lunar Chronicles books you know Levana was married to a guy named Evret and that she loved him very much. Hoo boy it’s worse than that since she’s manipulating him, brainwashing him, wearing his recently deceased wife’s face and forcing him to sleep with her (if you catch my meaning here) and that’s before she marries him. I’m at the point where she’s broken him down enough to force him into the marriage and it only took her a couple weeks to do it. This book was written so that readers could understand and feel sympathy for Levana but it’s made me more horrified of her if that’s how she treated the only person to show her kindness. Oh and during all these scenes she’s 16 so she’s a devil child as well. I’m going to keep reading this book (it’s only 222 pages and I’m literally halfway) since I want to know what happens to her sister Channery and her death, how she went through with trying to kill her niece and how she started as queen.
  25. Just got to level 50!
