Favorite Horror Movies

Now first thing is, I have to admit that Horror is not my favorite, but that is mostly because it is often gory and that is not my favorite thing. At the same time I enjoy movies with high suspense where the fear and horror comes more from what you don’t see or where there is something more to what is going on than just simple gore. There can be moments that are scary, creepy, and even horrific, but those are not the main way that you get scared.

Now I have enjoyed an occasional gore fest, but those are not the movies that have stuck with me or that I want to watch again. When a movie can scare you again even after you have seen it then you have something that works. So here are some of my favorite horror movies. Continue reading

Bioshock Infinite and the Statute of Limitations

This hasn’t been a great year for me playing videogames. Been so busy, so many things going on (not least of which is Comparative Geeks…) that I have a number of games that are incomplete. I have mentioned my thoughts on Diablo 3, which Holly and I should beat here at some point soon on the console (which I have also reviewed). I wanted to get Dragon Age 2 beaten, but still have not moved past the decision point I wrote about before (plus, how much will my save game matter now?). I still need to beat Final Fantasy XIII-2, though like Dragon Age 2, I have seen the end because Holly beat it. I am close to beating Final Fantasy Dimensions, but still haven’t. KotOR I have reached the point where it’s more open-ended where I go… twice. Holly beat Portal 2 recently, and I still need to finish the single player for that.

Really just a lot on the table.

So what game have I been playing? I have finally been getting back to Bioshock Infinite and working on beating it, and the further I get, the harder it is to put down! I am glad I did pick it back up, because it is phenomenal. There’s so much to say about it!

Winner of over 80 awards... so it says on my preorder copy of the game. Those are awards they got before the game came out.

And yet, I don’t feel like I can. Every time I see someone start a conversation about Bioshock Infinite, they cut themselves off. They’ve been respectful of spoilers. And so I feel like I need to be too – because the game experience, unspoiled, is fantastic. So spoilers not ahead for Bioshock Infinite! Continue reading
