Good movie. Just came back from seeing it with my brother and father, and a friend was there too although we only saw him after it was over. That said, because my brother is a fucking airhead douchebag, he may have damaged my friendship with said friend. I'll have to talk to him later. That said, I enjoyed the movie quite a bit. It was way better than the fourth one. Went back to the old style of humour for a good bit, and while the plot was a little on the weaker, semi-forced side, the characters pulled it through. And as always, the music is awesome. I'mma need that credits theme ASAP. Only major gripe is the ages of the characters not really matching their appearance. Jack and Mr.Gibbs, for example, look exactly the same as always even though it's been long enough since the third movie for Will's son to be in his late teens/early twenties. Threw me off.
The next movie promises to be one worth seeing, too.
I know I said I'd do a Hayate journal soon, but since we're already in June I may as well wait for the bonus chapter at this point. I believe it's supposed to be out sometime this month. Mucho feels.
Also, finished my first playthrough of Prey the other day. Just the sort of game I really needed, felt really excited while playing it. Solid story (though the ending got spoiled for me, so I felt a bit empty towards the end), and fantastic gameplay. I absolutely LOVED exploring the levels, there was so much to do, treasure to find and entrances to seek out. I'm sure I missed some stuff too, like plenty of passwords I eventually bypassed with hacking towards the end. I played with human abilities-only, and it was a blast. That said, I've (much to my surprise) started a second playthrough right away, and this time I'll be using Typhon abilities exclusively. I'm worried about this though because that means
a) no inventory expansion, so my weapons and loot space are limited
b) no weapon upgrades past the first tier, so my shit's gonna be weak. Typhon powers better be strong
c) no health pool upgrades
d) no hacking or object lifting, so getting around might be tricky
e) no PSI pool upgrades, so I'm using PSI powers with only a tiny pool to draw from
When/If I do a No Needles run, it's gonna be even harder. I suppose I'll have to play more stealthily instead of as kill-everything as I was on my first playthrough.
Also also, the Pokemon Battle Competition for this month sounds fun. I missed last month's because I got hooked by Prey, but this month it's a double battle style again, but you're only able to use Pokemon a meter tall or less. Should make for an interesting playing field. I just hope I can fight off the boredom of breeding/grinding again to put together a team in time.
I saved some Battle Videos onto my Vita of the last few competitions before the latest update killed them all. The quality will be shit, but I might try uploading them to Youtube later. I only saved a handful I thought that I played really well. Hopefully they're not too bad.
