(Seriously, why the hell does a site with pictures of captioned animals need such a high-spec engineer? 3+ years of .NET, 3+ years of AJAX? Not that I'd have minded working in Lower Queen Anne, if only for the colorful surroundings, but what the hell.)

He asked me if I played keys, and I said, "A little," and he said, "Why don't you come up on stage later and play with us?" I thought he was joking and said, "Sure!"
And towards the end of the set, he started to gesture at me, and I was all, "Really?" and he was all, "Really!" and I went up on stage and jammed. And apparently I did good!

Also notable is that it's probably the first movie I've seen which actually does need Blu-Ray to come across very well, because of all the little fiddly details which would have been lost on DVD. The main character has a fairly interesting form of synaesthesia, and the way it's conveyed is very well-done. Sure, it'd have been visible on DVD, but the details would have gone away (watching the "making of" segments, which are encoded at DVD quality, confirms this - eye-strain city!).

Some of the non-mainline gameplay bits are a bit fiddly and obnoxious (like, the Starfox-esque rails-shooter segments could be a bit better), but so far I'm very impressed with this game. I totally recommend getting it, and a PS3 to play it on if you don't already have one. (Which you probably don't.)
