    Oh yeah, you were right though, the music to Super Hexagon is superb!

    I didn't buy anything. All I have is a macbook, so 'PC' gaming isn't really something I have the luxury of partaking in anymore - unless it's an indie game. I did obtain Super Hexagon and VVVVVV a while back. Super Hexagon is pretty cool. VVVVVV was too frustrating though, and after a couple attempts I just kinda threw in the towel. Nab anything good?

    oh and if you're ever up for random game soundtracks I highly recommend the soundtracks to FEZ and FTL. You can listen to both of them for free here: http://disasterpeace.com/album/fez and http://benprunty.bandcamp.com/album/ftl

    Actually, I forgot that I got into M83 this year, around a few months ago. I tried the album "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming" and really enjoyed it. Have yet to listen to anything else. I'd definitely recommend that if you haven't heard it. My music taste seems to be slowly but steadily leaning toward a more ambient/electronic sound, but I still stick to some basic "rock" staples as well. Right now I'm studying English & Japanese, and a few other random courses. I don't have a major yet - I'm not really sure where I'm going with these classes - but I'm thinking of teaching ESL here in BC since there's a lot of international students here. I might take a stab at Chinese eventually, but Asian languages are REALLY FREAKING HARD!

    my music taste has pretty much stagnated, I haven't really pursued anything new since last year. I spend a LOT less time on the computer these days, so most of my music listening occurs in my car, but let me know if you find anything good! New National should be good though. As far as myself, finished my first full year or school so now I have some jobs in the pipeline for the summer.

    yeah i kinda fell off the grid for a while. i'm definitely up for hearing some more b-sides! do they have any sort of official/unofficial b-side compilation? i do appreciate alternate versions having different lyrics though. i always find it neat when i discover a different version of a song with a different chorus or rhythm change or something like that.

    hey-o! kinda late getting back to you... kind of insane last couple months for me and all. Slow Show is great, one of my favourite Boxer songs. I think I like the album version more, but it's probably just cause it's what I'm used to. always neat to hear alternate versions of great tracks though :)

    Finally looked it up out of curiosity... if you want to see the dialogue difference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIte-K2T5kw Not really that significant but interesting nonetheless.

    Although, I should clarify that the events of Leviathan take place before the end of the game, in other words, you have to play it before you launch the final assault on the Cerberus base, and then go to Earth. I think if Leviathan was included as a part of the main game people wouldn't have flipped out as bad as they did, because it alludes to the existence of the starbaby, where as without it you're just blind-sided by his magical appearance in the last 5 minutes of the trilogy. The exposition in Leviathan only really makes sense if you've beaten the game already. If you haven't then it just gives you some interesting nuggets to ponder until you beat the game. Apparently Leviathan gives you one or two extra lines of dialogue w/ Starbaby but I was too lazy to redo the entire end-sequence again. Will do it eventually.

    I think it would be incredibly difficult to create a post-synthesis Mass Effect universe that is believable or makes even the slightest lick of sense. Unless they go all cyber-punk and Deus Ex-y then maybe it could work? I just think it would be WEIRD though. Destroy seems like the most logical choice for a "canon" ending, but I agree mostly with what you said - that does destroy the Geth entirely, which makes me sad, since Legion made me like them a lot. I originally picked destroy when I played the game pre-EC, without fully understanding the consequences of my actions. I favor destroy slightly over the others (despite its huge consequences) partially because it's the only ending where Shepard can potentially "survive", and I think the "Shepard memorial" scene with your squad strikes home a little harder when they don't actually put your name plate on the Memorial wall. Control is pretty cool post-EC and I like Shepard's speech. Synthesis serves as the "happily ever after"

    Sorry for the massive wall of text on your profile - but my last thought that I find interesting about Leviathan is that, the starbaby himself claims that synthetics will always rebel against their creators, but Leviathan pretty much confirms he did just exactly that... which not only makes him a massive hypocrite, but also infuriates me that there is no ending that lets you refuse his choices and actually win. Refusing him just results in a "fuck you, you lose" ending which actually didn't even EXIST before the EC.

    As for the DLC, fair enough. I usually only buy DLC for games I really like, but I can definitely understand your reasons for being against it. I kind of see DLC as fractured expansion packs these days, though. You kind of have to pick and choose your battles with DLC, I often like to wait until I can get them en masse when they go on sale. In any case, the best part about Leviathan is that it essentially confirms that the Catalyst (starbaby, or whatever you want to call him) is an insane rogue A.I. that destroyed the original "Apex Race" (Leviathans) to fulfill his purpose of preserving organic life. Apparently the Leviathans (essentially organic Reapers who could mind control lesser species) were more suited to becoming robotic monstrosities by his logic. You discover that some of them have actually survived and they remain in hiding. Kind of gave me a whole new perspective on the destroy ending, because if you destroy the Reapers what stops them from taking over again?

    Realistically it's probably impossible to make an ending that actually includes your decisions throughout all three games in a realistic way unless they had the ending on an entire separate disc of its own. Bioware kinda set themselves up for that one though, by promising more than they realized they could ever deliver since the very first game. I wasn't really upset about that, so much as I felt the original endings and the insulting "buy DLC" message just left a really sour taste in my mouth. I chose the destroy ending because it was kind of the objective I had set out to do since the very first game. I think conceptually synthesis is interesting but I dislike the way it was handled in ME simply because I have a hard time believing you can just magically combine everyone's DNA/minds/whatever together and their eyes just glow green now. I think Deus Ex: Invisible War handled that idea much better with the JC Denton ending.

    A bit of clarification: Leviathan basically explains what the hell the Catalyst actually is (but you won't understand the context of the information until you actually get to the end of the game if you hadn't experienced it yet). It also gives some great back-story to the Reapers and some answers as well... don't want to say too much but I think you'd greatly enjoy it. The final conversation of the DLC makes the whole thing worth a purchase IMO. Totally unexpected but ridiculously awesome.

    Hey man, how's it going? I thought ME3 was absolutely phenomenal for the most part... the ending was incredibly disappointing to me, but I first experienced it without the EC. EC makes a huge difference though, I'm glad you got to experience it for the first time with the EC included, makes for a much more cohesive experience. Which ending did you pick? I agree that it's ridiculously similar to DX1. I found the choices kind of... unfitting for ME, personally. I highly recommend checking out the "Leviathan" DLC which just recently came out if you have the time and $$. Very interesting story-wise and gives some much needed substance to the Reaper-Godchild scenario they have going on in that game.

Conóceme

So basically I haven't really had the time to look into much new music in about three years, so what we have here is a snapshot of me in 2009, with a few recent exceptions. The radio stations aren't going to help with good music and I can't just spend hours trawling the web for tips. I'm still open to suggestions, I just find it difficult to devote the hours to new albums that they deserve.

Which brings me to my possible ultimatum - as one of the last of my group still holding out here on last.fm I've had to re-evaluate my stance to it. The comments are full of idiocy like "I have no original thoughts so what that guy before me said [33]" and I don't really have an evolving chart, since it I've found that I have less patience for certain experimental things that I think I might have given more of a shot a few years ago. Now I just think more and more people are taking the piss, haha. Therefore I don't think anything is going to change much and the success of my ipod scrobbling seems to be arbitrary, adding more hassles to a process that is already pointless enough.
So I've set a finale - 100,000 plays. That's a fair amount and I have a good few to get to, but after that I'm probably going to uninstall the whole thing and be done with it. I mean who cares, really? if a song is scrobbled and no one is around to see your charts, does it make a sound?
Add me as a friend and recommend stuff before it's too late!


The favourites:
The National and Godspeed You! Black Emperor remain untouchable, and it's hard to fault either PJ Harvey or Neko Case. Radiohead have such an amazing catalogue of songs that it's easy to forgive the newest ones sounding like Hail to the Thief B-sides. Pearl Jam are in a similar situation. I'll always go see them on tour no matter what their albums are like because they always deliver live.
The New Pornographers are great, but I'm partial to anything with Neko's vocals. Non-Neko can be hit and miss.
I'm still undecided on Arcade Fire's recent two albums. They're growing on me but I would still prefer to pick and mix songs rather than go start to finish, like I would for Neon Bible.
I have also been into the Jezabels for roughly a year now, something about the sound of the 80s colliding with 20XX is endlessly listenable for me. Even if my favourites don't match with everyone else's.

more redundant data
I had a band logo thing but that's broken, so I replaced it with a different set of useless data in the form of a flag counter. What can I say, I'm keen on geography. Shame most of the visits are probably me.
