Seven Day Late Post

It's been a week since I posted. That's a long time.

Had a nice quite holiday break. Didn't go anywhere. My parents enjoyed themselves though. They went Gawai visiting while I did the house sitting. Didn't mind that at all. The extra hours of sleep were welcomed.

I watched At World's End last week. It was great. A little bit too long, but good nevertheless. Answered a lot of questions and ended up causing a lot of questions in the end. Will there be a 4th movie? I don't know if that's a good idea, too much of a good thing can actually be a bad thing. But if a 4th movie got made, I'd watch it if the standards are close to the three done so far. Some great fun characters there, played by some great people. Orlando Bloom notwithstanding.

But I'm thinking this will all pale into relative insignificance come the 28th of June. That's when Transformers is due out. The trailers have blown me away every time I saw them, especially the one we watched before Pirates 3. It was bloody awesome! Huge difference between watching a low res clip on my PC and a huge clip in a theatre.

This movie has every potential to be the new Star Wars. Provided it's done right. I'm really, really looking forward to it and I won't mind if the thing turns out to be more than 2 hours long.

I would love to be there on opening night at the end of the month. This movie will rule. I hope.

In other news, I'm really starting to get the hang of Oblivion now that I've tweaked it and patched it. Apparently, the original version of the game had a serious flaw. So I downloaded the patch and started a new game.

Also, I no longer get motion sickness and the initial confusion about the plot, the game mechanics and the story of the game is also gone. It plays like an MMO in that you can do whatever the hell you want, without the monthly subscription and potentially annoying other human players. Plus, no ganking...

That's not to say that I won't resume my World of Warcraft subscription in the future. I might come back. But not now.

In conclusion, Oblivion is going to sit in my hard disk for a good long while especially after I go out and get the expansion this Thursday.

In other news, not much has happened. I'm doing pretty good. The Gawai weekend was kind of dull with most of the people I wanted to visit having gone home to their kampungs for the festival.

I have to say between Gawai and Christmas, I like Christmas more.

I won't have long to wait. Only six more months. I'd like to have a meaningful one this year please.
