Preliminary reports on the Smackdown tapings reveal that, breaking the pattern of Lame Raw = Great Smackdown, it’s going to be Lame. Hopefully they can do some editing in post production or reshoot some backstage bits…
Given that folks were ranging from ‘Huh?’ to ‘Blargh’ when they saw the Episode II teaser in front of Monsters, Inc, there’s going to be a 2 minute long trailer with footage and dialogue and stuff attached to Harry Potter. Very nice. I’ll need to find a good latenight showing so I can avoid the kiddies.
Big ‘ol shiny shout-out to Neko-Neko, who is celebrating her birthday. Wai! (First birthday I haven’t forgotten in awhile. n.n;)
Capcom vs. SNK 2 is out, but I won’t be able to pick up my copy anytime soon; the mall is farther away and I need to send mom out to fetch it. She’s busy with unpacking. Damn.
Got in some very good RP last night. Party. Bonus. But I’m finding there’s not much else to do… I guess there’s my PS2, but my hands are just now healing up from the marathon Tony Hawk sessions where I could swear I sprained a finger. Ugh.
I came up with more plot bits for UE02. I’ll try to organize my thoughts tonight. The biggest problem is ‘If you tell RealWare you’re not interested in using their products anymore and you’re switching to an Open Engine, what can they do to you?’. I don’t want to go with the obvious answer of ‘They’ll shoot you in the head’ because that’s not a realistic way for a company to operate, even a complete monopoly/quasigovernmental body. I don’t want blatant evil. I want subtle evil. I want evil that thinks it knows what’s best for you and is trying to be helpful even if it’s doing it in the most evil way imaginable. Needless to say, that’s hard to plot…
Bit of a thread about wrestling in the comments on my previous post. Read if so inclined.
