Its been a little while, have had plenty of good news and a little bad since.
Start with the bad, Ultra-man did not get into Galway film festival, which I must say, was a little like getting hit with one of these:
But sure its ok, especially considering that not long after Ultra-man got featured on Vimeo and now has nearly 18,000 views:
Some people have even been in contact about me doing work for them, but I'm still waiting to see how that plays out.
I also just got an email from the good folks at dailymotion.com saying they'd like to feature the film, which is cool.Matt...?
I'd always heard that its never a good idea to meet your heroes, but this was one of the nicest most genuine guys I ever met.Other Stuffzzzz
Been catching up a lot on my vidja games ( superstreetfighter4 psychonaughts supermariobroswii cavestory metalgearsolidtwinsnakes nomoreheroes2 Finalfantasy13 omg omg omg) Nice to be back playing again.
SSF4 new characters
Super Street Fighter 4 got two brand new characters to the series, turkish oil wrestler Hakan and Psychotic Tae Kwon Do user Juri, and I gotta say, two of the best SF characters in generations, easily rivaling those of alpha and three, more than makes up for the disappointing new characters from the original sf4 (go fuck yourself Abel you personalityless piece of shit).No More Heroes 2
I really enjoyed NMH2 but unfortunately I felt for every issue they fixed (odd pacing, repitative fights) a new one came up to take its place (can no longer kill people for money, even less to do outside main story, shinobus controlls kind of suck). Couple this with a last boss fight that boils down to Travis fighting a giant balloon animal and I have to say I was... slightly... disappointed... Not that it doesnt have a huge amount going for it (Assassins 5 to 2 are easily some of the best in the series) and its still no more heroes, and the soundtrack is FUCKING AWESOME. (more on that in a little bit.)
But put it this way. After NMH 1 I was all "WOW THE FUCKING CAT HAD THE NAME AND TH
ERE WAS THAT PICTURE HOLY SHIT HOLT SHIT!
But NMH2 I was all
"...What? nah theres... theres probably some more... huh? credits? maybe its... like post credits or something.... what...? main menu?... ahmmm..."
Still though maybe I was just expecting too much, I'd still recomend it highly, and it definetly wasnt as much of a let down as the likes of viewtiful joe 2.Preacher 1 - 9
Tonight, I'm waiting till everyone goes to bed, gonna sit down in my favorite chair and read the final volume of Preacher, a comic series I've been a reading for about a year now. Despite a dip in the middle, the last two volumes have been really great, and quite sad. All this crazy shit happens throughout, but what the whole story really comes down to is is a friendship that goes really terribly wrong, and I think pretty much anyone can relate to that. Don't really think I could do it much justice going into it any further than that, but when you read the line:
"I'll be waitin' fronta the Alamo. Five A.M. Don't make me come lookin' for you."
It really gets ya.
Kind of reminds me of this song:
Anyways, gonna go read it now, talk to ya soon
