If you liked Taken…

by wfgodbold

You’ll probably like Taken 2.*

It’s the same style of movie – Liam Neeson is the implacable, righteously angry man on a mission to protect his family, and nothing is going to stop him.

Not even an entire Albanian town.

Though I liked it, I didn’t think it was quite as good as the first movie.

I still recommend it, though. It’s worth it just to see how Liam Neeson’s character MacGyvers his way out of captivity.

*I know I said I’d post this last weekend, but I have been incredibly busy. It turns out that those people who said moot court and law review at the same time was too much might have been right.

So here’s several weeks’ worth all at once. Now that I’m getting back in the habit of blogging regularly, I doubt this will happen again. Until I get back out of the habit, anyway.

Releasing this in the US would convince me to jump ship from iOS to Android. Everyone likes Neon Genesis Evangelion!

Falcom has released some more screens from their Ys IV remake/reimagining, Ys: Woodland of Celceta. It looks far more polished than it did when it was first announced. Hopefully XSEED will bring this out over here (and since they’ve got a good thing going with Falcom, I think it’s pretty likely). Oh, Ys: Woodland of Celceta’s official homepage is up as well.

Weer’d posted about TGSCOM’s shutdown. Apparently they’d been threatened with frivolous lawsuits and hadn’t been shipping their orders or something. I bought my P226 from them in 2010, and didn’t have any problems. I’m sorry to see them go (unless they were actually stiffing their customers; I only dealt with them the one time, and can’t speak to how they were operating since).

And to counterbalance yesterday’s Japan news, some good news: the last Aum Shinrikyo member involved in the Tokyo subway sarin gas bombing from the 90s has been arrested.

Growlanser IV hits the PSP and PSN at the end of this month. It’s unrelated to the 3 earlier games, so you don’t have to worry about not understanding references or terminology, or recognizing repeat characters. The only downside is that ATLUS couldn’t justify the cost for licensing the Japanese voices (or dubbing it in English, for that matter), since it’s even more of a niche title than their usual.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown comes out at the start of October, and the preorder bonuses are tempting. Especially classic X-COM flattop soldier.

Taken 2 looks awesome. I, for one, can’t wait to see the Most Interesting Man in the World try to get his revenge on Liam Neeson.

And the full theatrical trailer for the live-action Rurouni Kenshin movie has been released. Japan handles these anime-to-live-action conversions so much better than Hollywood does.

I had a couple more links, but they’ve been lost in the æther.
