I watched every Fast and Furious movie within the past two days.

The Fast and the Furious - 4/5

I'm surprised at how much of this one I remembered, except for the part where it's actually a lot better than I remembered.

2 Fast 2 Furious - 2/5

This one however is just as delightfully bad as I remember, bro.

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift: 4/5

This is where I left off, and it still totally holds up. Was easily my favourite at the time.

Fast and Furious - 3/5

It was cool to see Dom and Brian together again, buuuut this one wasn't particularly special. Expectations were pretty high with all the stuff I'd heard about this series post Tokyo Drift, and this one kinda disappointed. There were some cool moments, but ultimately it's the most uninteresting of the lot. At least 2 Fast was funny bad.

Fast Five - 5/5

WELL THAT ESCALATED QUICKLY.

Furious 6 - 6/5

This was a solid 5/5, with the mid-credits scene bumping it up a point, because holy fucking shit. I already knew what was gonna happen, but the way it all played out was way more perfect than I anticipated. They fucking did it. They fucking made it all work. I love it.

Dwayne Johnson is one of the finest cinematic forces of our time.

I endorse this post.

Only thing i would change is remove one point from the 2nd and 4th movies and give them to the first and 3rd. But the general assessment of the series is sound.

One of the most rewatchable series ever, it's just so entertaining and dumb but mostly entertaining. It's like wine, it gets better with age.

I'm new to Persona in general, i've played this one before a while ago but never finished it, in fact didn't get all that far in it. June i think. I never played any of the other games either. The rest of my experience with the series is watching the first 60 or so episodes of the endurance run years ago.

In any case i was wondering if you need to give all the correct answers in order to max out a social link or if you can say whatever you feel like and the game will continue to let you meet with whoever until you max out the social link, whether that takes 12 meeting with that someone or 20.

I know it's probably impossible to max all the social links in one playthrough without following a guide and giving all the best answers every time but that sound very unappealing and it's not my goal. I just don't want to lock myself out of maxing out the social links I decide to focus on because i don't always give the best answers.

Basically what i'm saying here is that there's no way i'm agreeing with Hidetoshi every single time because fuck that guy! But i still want to eventually max that social link regardless.

It's worth it for them to go to industry events but it's obvious they're limited in how many they can attend and i'd much rather they vary a bit more than continue to go to every Pax out there. At this pace there's going to be 17 different Pax in a couple years.

I wish they'd go to TGS or Gamescon instead.

Pax seems to be basically just one big fan meet up for them which they could probably do on their own if they wanted to.

2 is better in every way. Uncharted is all about the spectacle, the set pieces. They're all vastly superior in 2. It's also a better third person shooter too.

But that's what Uncharted is, a third person shooter with cool set pieces. Nothing more, nothing less. It's a really good one of those and came out before the craze really got going and the market got flooded with them. You're 7 years late to the party.

In 2007 that game was great and in 2009 Uncharted 2 was something to behold. It's just not terribly exciting anymore.

It's funny learning about this while watching a stream of Cities: Skyline and thinking "yeah that game made by a tiny team looks pretty great".

Puts things into perspective when compared to the shit show SimCity turned out to be.

@orangecrush: I feel like you are talking to a different person here.

Because i have made it very clear on two occasions now that i'm saying that PC gaming is cheaper than console gaming. Nothing more, nothing less. It was already the case a year ago, it is even more so here now that console games have gone up in prices more than their PC counterparts here specifically in Canada.

No, what you said it not at all 100% relevant in Canada and in fact none of it is relevant at all because you're addressing some imaginary post that talks about something completely different than what i wrote.

I'll put it in as simple terms as i can, maybe you'll understand this time. Today, it is cheaper to game on PC than on console in Canada. There. Third time's the charm?

@orangecrush: Except that in Canada retail console games have gone up 20% (and soon 25%) in price in less than a year while my salary didn't change.

Since Steam started charging in Canadian dollars instead of US dollars we're actually paying less than before in most cases and most games haven't gone up in price nearly as much as their console counterparts and many of them actually went down artificially by charging the same amount in US and Canadian dollars. Most recent example for me is Resident Evil HD Remaster. 19.99$ US, 19.99$ Canadian. Most 20$ US games have been adjusted to 21.99$ even though at the current value of the Canadian dollar 20$ US is 25$ CAD. So even games that have been adjusted up on PC are cheaper than they would normally be.

But by all means continue to assume that everybody lives in the US and that prices are universal across the globe and that you also know my income and continue to "educate" me on prices and budgets...

Also i'd like to point out that despite your wall of text that started by saying my claim that console gaming is more expensive than PC gaming is ridiculous, you said absolutely nothing to disprove it.
