Impossible Achievements
January 25, 2008

Lately I've been playing NHL 2k8 and NHL 08 quite a bit. While they're both fine games, NHL 2k8 has a "Revenge" achievement, which seems to be impossible to unlock. Of course, I only discovered this after successfully fulfilling it's "Score while down by two men, on All Star difficulty" criteria for some four hours. I guess they wanted an empty 150 gamerpoints as revenge against all of the people who did this in the earlier games? Really? Does it really make sense to punish the consumer for purchasing your product?

Getting lost in your points...
July 05, 2007

In the middle of a review, I'll have a hundred ideas of what I want to write and just as many ways I wish I could relay my thoughts to the reader. Then, somewhere along the lines, I'll get caught up in some small aspect of the game and launch into a sort of long-winded diatribe about how horrible the singular annoying aspect of the game may be. At this point, my concentration breaks and my thoughts just flood through without any kind of filter. I'm just wondering if anyone else has found this to be a problem and what they do when they're review has been derailed by unneeded descriptions. In other words: how can I stay focused and make every word of my review justified by organizing my writing? I hate that I am all over the place, at times and need some ideas on how to stay on track.

Review Progress
June 21, 2007

Playing through Sonic Adventure 2 and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and have a half-finished Zoo Keeper (DS) review scribbled in a notebook somewhere. I don't know if I'll actually commit to finishing it, but if I don't I'll be dissapointed. After finding around 20 half-finished reviews on my PC, I decided that they are only a waste of time if I don't finish them. Okay, I really don't have anything to say. Trying to write at least one review a week.

Review Progress
August 23, 2006

I'm part way through with my LEGO Star Wars review and am considering what I would like to review next.

I just bought Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (DS), Luigi's Mansion (GC), and Sonic Gems Collection (GC).

The only problem is that I can't seem to find my DS and it's aggrivating the hell out of me.
