So there are three games to date that have made me cry.

Those are Homeworld (the first one), Ace Combat 5 and the Banner Saga.

Oddly enough, it is the beginning of Homeworld, the middle of Ace Combat and the end of Banner Saga which do it for me.

And now for something else entirely.

Recently I've seen adds for the movie Lucy, now just coming to DVD et al and it pisses me off seeing the trailers.

The movie's premise is neat and all but the science is so flawed that it isn't even funny!

The very notion that because she is using more of her brain that she is better than the rest of humanity is stupid. Anyone who has taken a basic psych class should know this!

I'll explain: there is a common misconception that humans only use a part of their brain (often quoted as 10%).

This is true in a sense, but also false.

We use 100% of our brain, just not consciously.

You know that neat little thing you do called breathing? Or how about your heart beating, you know that?

Yeah, your brain is doing all that and more.

Now imagine using 100% of your brain actively and having to actually THINK ABOUT BREATHING or MAKING YOUR HEART BEAT. Can you imagine the hell that would be? If you forget to think about those things, you stop, oops?

So yeah, saying that because she uses 100% of her brain she can do all this insane stuff is complete malarkey. Now if she were a mutant with a larger brain to begin with, then I might buy into it because she has a LARGER brain which in turn means her 10% or so is MORE than ours, that I could buy into.

On another note, if you like quiet but beautiful movies, go see the Imitation Game, it kinda snuck in under the radar but it is an amazing and beautiful film starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley and details one of England's most secret projects of WWII and the race to win the war through the powers of the mind and mathematics.
