arise: (tales ♥ brightness)
Husband and I are trying out playing various games that we've had sitting around forever and either haven't played at all or haven't played for years, to decide whether to keep or trade them. We're giving each game between fifteen minutes and half an hour. I played Dead Island (almost wrote Dad Island there), which is essentially a Very Serious Dead Rising but actually quite fun once you get used to the questionable accents; Prototype 1, which husband hates because he thinks Mercer is a twat but I quite liked because Mercer is a twat; Kingdom Hearts 358 1/2 Days which made me intensely fond of Axel in the 15 minutes I spent playing it where every other KH game failed to do so; Lux-Pain which was probably very nice except for the dull, confusing translation; and Lost Odyssey, which I am still a bit ambivalent towards but think I will probably enjoy once I give it a proper go. He played Sonic Generations and Star Ocean 4 (which he hated), and Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare and Uncharted 2 (which he liked).

Okay now that I'm done talking about that, everyone should go buy this because okay I understand like no-one on my flist reads comics but IF YOU DID you would really like Secret Six which is about a mismatched group of mercenary psycopaths going on misadventures with funny lines and homoerotic subtext (it has Bane in it, and he is similar to DKR!Bane in humour if not character, motivation and backstory. and honestly he's way better characterised in S6 than he is in friggin' Knightfall). And IF YOU DID read Secret Six you would really like it, and this is by the same creative team.

...

seriously if anyone ever thinks about trying out any comics do yourself a favour and read it. and then buy this too. k im done.

Husband and I went to see The Dark Knight Rises today! Here are some spoilers. )

(Sort of) in honour of the occasion, we also went and picked up a few trades. Specifically trying to fill out the Secret Six collection (more Bane!), and we wound up picking up the first Journey into Mystery and (new) New Mutants as well. argghhhhh little!Loki so good. I'll be so sad if they really do age up Loki again because of the movie. DX

Went out shopping today, though it wasn't a very good trip. Not because we didn't pick up anything fun (we did!), but because ugh bad customer service. We went to Mind Games (tabletop rp stuff) first and they're always pretty rude, but idk maybe I noticed it more this time? They also treated another customer badly and I'm just kinda over it. We went to Minotaur (comics) afterwards, and even though the guy there wasn't rude (for once!), but because the place always looks like it's had one shelf-sorting per year.

I want to support bricks-and-mortar businesses, but when it's a matter of getting things online cheaply and not having to deal with shitty customer service vs going all the way to shops, attempting to browse their disorganized inventory, and then being treated like crap by the staff... eh. Just gonna buy online from now on and cop the shipping. In both cases, it's not so much that today was oh my god horrible, but that there have been a lot of incidents like this, as well as a few more questionable ones. It's just annoying because those are basically the only two shops in the city worth going to for those respective goods, so there's really no choice but to buy online.

But um we got some cool comics so that's nice 8D Tomorrow is a pretty big day - it's the twenty week ultrasound, so we'll find out the sex of the baby, and also whether it has any abnormalities or things to be concerned about. Everything's been so far so good, so fingers crossed everything goes okay tomorrow. I'm starting to feel the baby kick, which is... weird.

It occurs to me that I should probably make a sticky post for this journal at some point. Or are sticky posts not cool any more?
