Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam, The Witness, Firewatch, Rocket League XBO, Day of the Tentacle Remastered, Dark Souls III, Uncharted 4, No Man's Sky
These are all the games with release dates on the 2016 In Video Gaming Wikipedia page that I'm interested in. I'm sure there will be more. And that's just through June. Seems like a lot to play this Winter/Spring
Every movie I've seen so far this year: Ex Machina, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Pitch Perfect 2, Mad Max: Fury Road, Tomorrowland, Inside Out, Entourage, Jurassic World, Ant-Man, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, Crimson Peak, Hunger Games: Mockingjay 2, Creed, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Hateful Eight As always there are still a whole bunch of films I'd like to see. Best: probably Mad Max. Honorable Mentions: Creed, Hateful Eight, Star Wars, others. most of these movies are at least pretty good Movies that were not pretty good: Tomorrowland, Entourage, maybe Hunger Games
edit: Hateful Eight was awesome. Glad I got to see the 70mm print. It was a classy experience. No movie previews before the film it just went right into it. Got a nice little book about the movie with my ticket. dug the overture. intermission came at a good spot. Strong recommend. I don't normally like ranking things but I found it pretty easy with Tarantino's films so here's that 8. Death Proof 7. Django 6. Kill Bills (1 is better than 2) 5. Reservoir Dogs 4. Hateful Eight 3. Jackie Brown 2. Inglorious Basterds 1. Pulp Fiction Hateful Eight might jump up or down one spot after sitting with it for a while.
So I started eating Soylent about 3 months ago and it's exactly the thing I needed. I tried it back when it launched and just found the powder stuff terrible but they recently launched the premixed ready to drink version and I decided to give them one more shot. I've been eating fast food and pizzas for my entire adult life and in the last couple years it really started "catching up" to me. Traditional food for me is now something I do on special occasions (social event, thanksgiving, just a treat) but day to day my nutrition is all taken care of. It's easy to know exactly how many calories I'm eating which is making it really easy for me to lose weight. When I started that I also quit drinking anything but water and making an effort to move around more. Not hardcore exercise yet, I'm working up to that, but I've been walking/light running a few days a week and putting in some good miles. I got a membership to the Zoo to have a place to go walk around so that's usually my spot. I figure getting into the colder months that will still be a decent option because they will keep the walks well maintained and there are plenty of indoor exhibits to seek refuge from the cold. I'm not sure what my weight was exactly at when I started but I'm down over 30lbs from the heaviest I've been and seem to still be heading steadily in the right direction. I feel really good!
I'm going to keep tuning into Supergirl. Lots of shows struggle out of the gate. I think when they hit their stride there could be a solid show here. There was just lots of stuff crammed into this episode that they probably should have spread out a little more and all the clunky YOUR COUSIN stuff.
Everybody in my neck of the woods is pretty excited for this Michigan v Michigan State matchup next weekend. I don't usually give a shit but there is enough hype that I'll probably watch it. Michigan seems to have turned things around quickly. I thought after they lost week 1 it was going to be a very long and upsetting season for all the Michigan fans I know (like everyone... everyone I know...)
Oh shit we're ranking the wire in here? 4>3>2>1>5 With 5 being the only one that is a big step down but certainly not bad. I've seen the whole series twice. Season 2 grew on me a lot the second time through.
Play Lufia 2 for sure. Really good game. Some devious puzzles. Takes some turns that were pretty cool for an RPG of that era. Maybe a little fetch questy but otherwise one of my favorite RPGs of that gen.
