What I'm playing right now
December 07, 2018

I'm back at it. It's been a while since I've been able to ramble about what I'm playing, or what I've played, mainly because I've tightened my focus to a single game at a time. Granted, I do occasionally stray from my key title, but I mostly try to stick to one huge project before moving on.

There are plenty of titles I won't be talking about right now, but a lot that I'd like to discuss. Obviously, Cattails, Fallout: New Vegas and Dragon Age: Inquisition were some of my most recent playthroughs, as evidenced by my latest reviews. However, I also played:


Chantelise: A Tale of Two Sisters

Coming back (with a heavy heart)
November 20, 2018

First off, thank you to Marc, Jason and Rob for your kind words. I wanted to comment on my previous blog, but I figured I'd do it here.

I successfully got my cat, Mona, to keep down sixteen feedings. That was more than she had taken prior. I thought she was due to bounce back. But there was always a lingering doubt. She exhibited signs of another illness that perhaps sparked her loss of appetite, and led to her hepatic lipidosis.

Short break
November 14, 2018

I'm going to be taking a short break from reviewing. By short, I don't mean any more than a month or so. You see, about two months ago, one of my cats ran away from home. My older son left his window open. She used to leap up there to look outside, but must not have realized there was no pane there to stop her. My guess is she fell out and panicked, then became a resident of my neighbor's crowded property. As far as I could tell, she was living under things in his backyard for a while, and she wouldn't come back to us. He kept her well fed for a while, anyway. She was a strictly indoor cat, so her ability to survive outside was probably not terribly up to scratch (no pun intended), and eventually she stopped finding food...

Who has two thumbs and is already preparing for next year's October reviews?
November 03, 2018

I can't believe I'm actually doing this again. I probably won't be able to get all the way through it, because my free time loves to fluctuate. One year, I managed to write two reviews per day, between here and Realm of Gaming (totaling 62 reviews, three quarters of which were game revs, and the other quarter consisting of movie reviews). Maybe next year I can pull of a review for each day, plus Underbelly blog posts. So far, I've completed:

Game reviews:
Slender: The Eight Pages (PC)
Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (DS)
The Lost Souls (PC)
Euclidean (PC)


Underbelly posts:
Humongous (1982)
Anthropophagus: The Grim Reaper (1980)

The Underbelly: Rawhead Rex
October 03, 2018

The Underbelly #2
Rawhead Rex
1986
Director: George Pavlau
Premise: A big, man-eating monster that looks nothing like his source material runs amok in a small Irish community. Bad visual effects ensue...


If you see a mysterious stone monument on your property, likely left there by druids, DON'T TOUCH IT.

If you want to adapt a short horror story by a prominent author, and decide to make changes to key elements of said story, DON'T BOTHER SHOOTING IT.

Legend of Dinosaurs & Monster Birds
1977
Director: Junji Kurata
Premise: Bizarre climate conditions resurrect a petrified Plesiosaurus and a Rhamphorhynchus, who then munch Lake Sai's and Mt. Fuji's visitors. Meanwhile, a boring hero seeks to... What? Clear his disgraced father? Strike it rich with a monumental scientific breakthrough? See a prehistoric creature with his own eyes? Pick a motivation, dude.


SPOILERS ABOUND: I know this is an old flick, but at there's always that one reader who gripes about giveaways for obsolete flicks.


From appteizer to dessert, one town becomes a monster meal.
