Mark's Academy Awards

February 23, 2009
Okay, I watched part of the Oscars last night, but since I haven't seen ANY of the movies except The Dark Knight, I'm going to provide my own awards for movies I've actually seen even if, you know, I saw some of them on DVD at home.

Best Film: Iron Man
I'm sorry, but out of all the movies I saw in the theater, I think this was the one I enjoyed the most.

Best Director: Hell, I don't know.

Best Actor: Paul Giamatti. In John Adams, which we're plowing through now. Quite a performance.

Best Actress: Oh, I don't know. It wasn't Meryl Streep, who I like, but I don't think I saw any of her movies recently.

Best Supporting Actor: Okay, Heath Ledger. I didn't much like The Dark Knight, but he gave one hell of a final performance. And it kind of breaks your heart to see his parents and sister accept the Academy Award. Talk about bitter-sweet.

Best Supporting Actress: The only actress that comes to mind, which probably tells you something about their roles, is Gwyneth Paltrow in Iron Man. I'm not a huge fan, but I thought she looked fabulous in this movie and acted reasonably well in it, and frankly, I just can't think of any other supporting actress roles I saw last year. In fact, I barely remember the movies I saw this year. Maybe I should keep a list.

What about you? Hey, I know Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull sucked, but Karen Allen was pretty good in it even if Cate Blanchette probably wasn't.

Cheers,
Mark Terry

Falcom, famed RPG developer and creator of Gurumin, wow golddescribes their newest title as a "Drilling Action-RPG." While this is an accurate description of the game, a better one would be a platformer with a side order of action-rpg elements.wow goldAt its core, Gurumin is a very playable 3-D platformer. You'll guide the main character Parin through the many levels by running, jumping, and using your legendary drill in order to traverse the many levels. wow goldAlong the way you'll be required to solve puzzles by moving and destroying objects and activating switches in each area. wow goldYou'll also earn money in which you can purchase healing items as well as upgrade your drill in order to perform even stronger special moves. wow goldIt's this careful mixture of platforming and rpg elements that make Gurumin such a unique experience.

Since we're rapidly approaching the three year anniversary of the Sony PSP system's release in Japan on December 12, 2004, I thought it would be a good time to take a look back at the system and its rise to popularity over the past three years. There's certainly no denying that Nintendo's DS system has been quite a bit more popular than the Sony PSP, but you have to give the PSP some credit. world of warcraft goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingeverquest 2 goldeq2 platfinal fantasy 11 cheap gilIt's been widely competitive in a portable gaming market that's been absolutely dominated by Nintendo over the past two decades.

I can also honestly say that no other game system ever released has gotten me quite as excited as the Sony PSP did before it was released. Maybe we need to start out with a look back at when I first got my PSP system and what I had to go through to do so.To say that I was excited about the Sony PSP system would be an absolute understatement of epic proportions. lord of the ring goldrunescape goldrunescape moneyrunescape itemsdofus kamaskamas dofuswarhammer goldbuy warhammer goldI made my first ever trip to Tokyo to the Tokyo Games Show just to finally get my hands on the PSP system in order to try it out for myself.

I was already a huge fan of the Phantasy Star games when this last 16-bit Phantasy Star title hit the Genesis console, but nothing could prepare me for the epic quest and overall impressive rpg experience offered up by Phantasy Star IV. After a slight detour in Phantasy Star III, I was thrilled to see Sega take the game back to its roots and make just enough improvements to end the series with a bang. warhammer goldwarhammer goldbuy warhammer goldbuy warhammer goldwow goldffxi gilbuy ffxi gildofus kamaskamas dofusdofus kamaskamas dofusI can't count the number of times I've played through Phantasy Star IV and I just finished yet another amazing trip through the game.everquest2 platinumtibia moneyvanguard goldkal geonwow power levelingwow powerlevelingwow levelingwow power leveling The game features a wonderful storyline and some of the best 16-bit rpg combat seen on the Genesis console.
