  1. Don't own it. I think I have one track on the 40 years of music compilation. It starts like a piano piece, sounds allright. But I'm really more of a big, brassy, bombastic score fan anyway.
  2. Super Mario Galaxy 2, much harder than the first.
  3. With Raiders it's a trade off, with the Concord you do get a lot more hiss, but the instruments do sound clearer.
  4. It must all the mexicans watching it over there. That's one thing i love about America, they hate soccer, I hope that doesn't change. I'm hoping Mexico loses tomorrow, people over here get way too annoying when they win.
  5. Maybe, just maybe Hedwig's theme is close, certainly not better.
  6. 1. Short Round Helps 2. Desert Chase 3. The Scroll/To Pankot Palace 4. Slave Children's Crusade 5. Short Round's Theme 6. The Miracle of the Ark 7. The Penitent Man Will Pass 8. Ride to the Nazi Hideout 9. Approaching the Stones 10. The Boat Scene

    It's the market I think, New Super Mario Bros. Wii was an outstanding success, it has sold 14 million in less than a year. The reality is that Super Mario Galaxy didn't perform as well and I don't expect Galaxy 2 to beat NSMBW numbers. 2D is selling right now on the Wii, they're simplier games to play and the Wii audience likes that (they've made great efforts to show people how to make the transition from 2D with NSMBW to 3D with Galaxy 2, in fact Galaxy 2 starts on 2D, we'll have to wait to see if it worked). It's like the old SNES days where they followed Mario World with Donkey Kong Country, to avoid saturating the market with Mario platformers. It looks like the Donkey/Diddy interaction is different from the original, let's hope it works.

    Looking at the 3DS lineup from Nintendo: Animal Crossing Kid Icarus Mario Kart Nintendogs Paper Mario Piotwings Star Fox Steel Diver The only one I'm not familiar with and could be new is the last one. At least there hasn't been a Kid Icarus since the first Gameboy. And you wouldn't like Smash Bros. Koray, you play a lot online, and nothing sucks more than Smash Bros. online.

    Zelda actually dissapointed me so far, it looks like Twilight Princess with motion controls, and I don't really feel like playing a whole Zelda game weaving my arms. DK Country is awesome, but of course I love 2D side-scrollers so that'll be great. Kid Icarus looks pretty cool for the new DS and the 2D part of Epic Mickey with the black and white looked very nice. But really Nintendo, Zelda, Mario, Metroid, Kirby, DK, Kid Icarus... how about something new that isn't stupid like Wii Party is? And Koray you should get a Wii, there are already some amazing titles out there.
  10. Well, there are two components to this, and one is not the concert's fault. The first is a local component, basically this type of event should not be done in Mexico, as it happened with McCartney's concert, it was just a mess. Endless traffic jams, no way to park. No information at all (they close the streets whenever they want for no reason). And say you don't take your car, at the end of the concert when you exit the venue, there's this long line of taxis, only problem is they turn off the meters and they charge whatever they want (completely illegal of course, and in front off the police too). So a Taxi ride which would be like, say $80 with the meter running now costs $400. Busses that normally charge $3 begin to charge $30. On Paul's first concert, I took my car, the concert ended at 12 o clock, I got home at 2:45 am, that's how bad the traffic got and I live like 30 minutes away from where the concert was. On Paul's second concert I had to pay $250 for a Taxi to get me home since it was past midnight and the subway was already closed (not to mention that even if the subway was open it would be rather dangerous). Yesterday for Star Wars I arrived one hour and a half before the concert and even so the parking lot was already full (Mexico just doesn't have the venues for this type of thing). I had to go back home, leave my car and take a cab. So basically, it's very problematic to go to these things and while I would say it's worth it if you're going to see a God like Paul McCartney, I don't think it was worth it with this. But all that is not the concert fault. As for the concert itself here's what bothered me: 1. This might also be a mexican thing but I'm not sure. I just didn't care fot the public reactions, everytime a piece started, the whooing, the screaming, the whistling, I mean it's not freaking Metallica. I just don't like that at all in an orchestral concert. There was a point in the middle of Princess Leia's theme where they show her in the gold bikini and everyone started whistiling. The same during the encore, when they did a close up on the woman playing the triangle and again with the whistling. It just seemed vulgar to me. I wasn't expecting a classical concert audience, but come on. 2. The term concert is somewhat misleading, it should be Star Wars experience or something like that, basically you're watching the movies very loudly with the music underneath. The dialog can get very loud, to the point where you can't hear the music. Even worse during Battle of the Heroes (called here A Hero Falls or something), the music gets quite loud and so does the dialog and it ends up just being noise, you can't hear neither. Then again maybe the sound was crap because it's Mexico and the venue sucks. It doesn't help that I don't like the prequels at all and don't want to hear Natalie's Portman terrible fake accent "Our people are dying" or whatever she says while I'm trying to listen to Duel of the Fates. So I hated the "atmosphere" and couldn't really listen to the music all that well. Another minor thing is I don't like how they scramble everything. I don't want to see stupid Padme dying of a broken heart during Throne Room, or the horrible Coruscant chase during the climax of the Asteroid Field. Oh and they barely make a passing coment of John Williams.
  11. Went yesterday to Star Wars in concert, kinda hated it... oh well.
  12. TPM is the last Williams score I totally love and that I feel is close to his prime, so 1999.
  13. Or if you can recognize a bad joke.
  14. That still looks more real than the one they used in Jaws the Revenge.
  15. That's one thing that annoys me so much from the Special Editions. I remember when Hoth was actually white. These images are to highlight the more obvious changes, so they're not exactly the same, but they illustrate the color change:
  16. I'd say watching the prequels is more like stepping on shit barefoot.
  17. TPM is the only really good one of these.
  18. Dissapointing. I was picturing Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck eating babies.
  19. I've seen a Color Corrected version of Star Wars in 1080p HD, it's so beautiful it makes you want to kill George Lucas for not releasing the original version on Blu-Ray. You can see the dirt in R2, the fact that the Death Star "walls" actually look kinda cheap. It's like seeing it for the first time.
  20. Continuing with the shameless, non-sensical marketing machine that is now Star Wars: New Adidas add At least is well made.
