- Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Crazy movie. One thing for sure, it is original (for what I’ve seen). Nice graphics/special effects. A different way of recording, with scenes merged in interesting ways. Great to see the Batman-like sounds written all around. Cool jokes. Fun to watch.
Oh, and I do that same thing with Coke Zero in the head. It feels… cool.
And, nice girls. Ramona (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is very cute. Love her face, and the hair in colors makes her beautiful. Scott sister, (Anna Kendrick) is also very nive. And Kim (Alison Pill) is cute with that hair, and the do not bother me face.
8 in 10 @ IMDB.
GTA4: No Love Lost
I took a break on my work to kick the ass, wipe out, or kill (as you prefer) the boyfriend of Faustin’s daughter. Fortunately he has some friends that wanted their ass kicked as well. Mission accomplished.
Since yesterday, Nikko Bellic has an e-mail account. It was the easier mission so far, get to a computer and create an e-mail account. At the same time, I did my first job for Little Jacob, got in an ambush, and killed some guys. It was kind of easy, but I am not happy with my controlling abilities, yet.
Didn’t play for some time. Yesterday restarted with my new 22″ Acer, with FullHD. And now I notice the great graphical details I was missing. Yesterday I was kind of rusty and I was only able to kill a flying rat. Today I managed to finish a mission where I should follow a drug dealer, and kill him and his gang. My main problem was the process of climbing five flights of stairs…
In a previous post I was wondering why I couldn’t get sound from my XBox using any kind of connector when the HDMI cable was plugged in.
My doubts were funded on the design of my own cable, that shipped with XBox 360. It has two RCA for sound and one RCA for video but, in the XBox connector, it has too much plastic, in a way that it covers the HDMI connector.
Therefore, I supposed that that would be a design issue, with that purpose (to prevent to connect the two cables at the same time), and not a design flaw.
But then, I found the kit shown in the picture on sale: it includes a standard HDMI cable and a connector without that extra plastic, that can be plugged together with the HDMI cable, and deliver sound to two RCA (and an optical connector).
Already ordered the kit on eBay. Waiting for it.
GTA4: Gun Store
Some more play in GTA4 and, finally, Gun Stores are available. Missions completed today, include Crime and Punishment, Do you have protection?, and Final Destination. This last one was quite fun, to wreck a car. But it took some time, and almost wrecked mine first.
Also, had a second encounter with Brian, and found two flying rats, aka pigeons. I know there is one pigeon in the top of the roller coaster, but I can’t find an easy way to get there. I tried to put a car in the tracks, but that isn’t easy as well.
GTA4: Uncle Vlad
Uncle Vlad was going out with Niko cousin’s girlfriend. Niko couldn’t let this continue… and… bang. The best of this mission is the final execution, in cinematographic camera. Also, unlocking the fed the fish achievement is also cool. 😛
GTA4: Ivan the not so terrible
The main problem with this mission is controlling Niko. I am yet agile on controlling the character and the camera at the same time, and having to stop to look around and where to run to, is quite difficult. Fortunately, in this mission Ivan almost waits for Niko on some places, so that we can have the time to point to the stairs.
Finally, I wasn’t aware that I could not kill Ivan. So, now it is too late…
GTA4: Concrete Jungle
Today got back to GTA4, and had fun killing guys in the Concrete Jungle mission. I am not yet very agile with the controller. I think that it was easier to control with a keyboard (ASDW) and a mouse for look/aim. Hey, but I need to practice, and I might get good at this. Or not 😛
Oh, and by the way, I also killed a flying rat (pigeon) with a shotgun. it was da fun. Also, got into a police car, but the computer network was not accessible.
GTA IV - Jamaican Heat
I do not play much. Just got my Xbox360 home, again, I am starting, again, to play GTA IV. And I will probably post here the missions that I complete. Do not expect me to spam the blog, as I do not play much. Really. And that is especially true because I am playing with an old CRT TV. That makes it quite difficult to read and see some details. I really want to buy a 22″ LCD monitor to use with the XBox and with my Mac, when working. It needs to have HDMI. That amounts to about 150 Euros, that I can not afford at the moment. So, I will need to keep playing on TV.
Back to the mission, Jamaican Heat is done. The task is to help Little Jacob to kill some guys. Not anything fancy. The interesting thing? Little Jacob smokes too much. When driving the car with Jacob inside, you will notice the smoke getting out from the window. Great detail, Rockstar!
