Ah, the things Google finds for us when we are looking for something else...

Read this.

Now read this.

Eerily "similar" aren't they? Just more proof that morals and the internet don't go together like peas and carrots. Crap like this is a big part of why I got out of serious blogging.

**UPDATE** - Nevermind going to the second link now, I got them to take their review down. In a nutshell, they copied my review almost word for word and posted it as their own. I'll update again with more details later.

Some Things Really Are Worth The Wait

So before I begin, I understand that there is about a 1% chance that someone will actually read and/or give a crap about this post (down from the usual 4% for my other posts), but I don't care...

So Batman: Arkham Asylum came out yesterday after a couple delays and it is sublime. I don't play nearly as many games as I used to, but it seems like truly great games are a lot fewer and far between these days. That said, Arkham is the best game I have played in a long time (even though it was hyped up about as much as The Dark Knight).

Destined to do this forever?

Even if you are not a big Batman fan this game would still stand out as a great action/adventure game. If you are a Batman fan though this game is a little slice of geek heaven. It is amazing how much Batman miscellanea they have crammed into this game, and it is all presented in a very rewarding and easy to access way.

One last thing (because again, I realize nobody cares), while all the voice acting in the game is really well done Mark Hamill steals the show as the Joker. He was always great as the Joker in the old Batman animated series, but he takes the creepy hilarity to a new level here. There were moments where I literally laughed out loud, and I'm only a couple hours in.

So yeah, if you have a 360 or a PS3 do yourself a favor and pick this game up. You won't be sorry.

The Cruelty Of Hope

Hope can be a terrible thing. Liverpool went into their away tie with Chelsea yesterday needing to win and score at least 3 goals in the process. I knew there was almost no chance of them waltzing into the bridge and pulling off a 3-0 victory. But then they went up 2-0 about 30 minutes in and I had hope. 60 minutes later they walked off the pitch of their 4-4 draw with any dreams of European glory gone. And I was left wishing I hadn't hoped. But then I took stock and realized that I would not trade that brief time of hope for anything. Hope is a big part of what makes sports great. And that is what keeps many of us coming back for more.

Speaking of hope, we are just a few hours away from the Penguins getting the NHL playoffs back underway against the Flyers. There are still a few "ifs" hanging over this Pittsburgh team like black clouds. But it is a new season and anything can happen. And I have hope...

Also, it has been 20 years...

My Top 10 Movies List

Myself and a couple of my co-workers got into a big discussion about rating/ranking movies this week and where certain movies rank on our personal best/favorite movies lists. In the spirit of this, I give you my top 10 movies list:
  1. Lord of the Rings (It's all one movie in my world, just like the books are really one big book. Deal with it!)
  2. The Nightmare Before Christmas
  3. Finding Nemo
  4. Jaws
  5. Wall-E
  6. The Prestige
  7. Miracle
  8. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (Yes, the Gene Wilder one.)
  9. The Empire Strikes Back
  10. The Dark Knight
The bottom half of this list could definitely be shuffled around based on my mood at the time, and I am a little afraid that I overlooked an obvious choice, but all in all I would say this is a pretty solid look at my 10 favorite movies.
