Pokemon Go (Android)
I caught and earned via evolution a lot of Gen 2 Pokemon. I had a feeling that if Niantic released too many at one time, the game would lose some of its charm, and it kinda has. Right now, catching 'Mons is like shooting fish in a barrel. I think I've hit the point where I've caught most of the common ones, but I still feel like I'm growing apathetic to the sensation of adding a new one to my dex.

Gained since the last post: Furret, Hoothoot, Noctowl, Ledian, Spinarak, Ariados, Crobat, Natu, Xatu, Flaaffy, Marill, Hoppip, Skiploom, Sunkern, Wooper, Espeon, Umbreaon, Murkrow, Misdreavus, Snubbull, Sneasel, Slugma (hatched from a 2 km egg), Swinub, Phanpy, Blissey.

Pokemon Go (Android)
Last week was the beginning of the Valentine's Day event (it ended recently), which bumped up spawn rates of some rare Pokemon, such as Lickitung, Chansey and Porygon. Of those, the only one I needed was Porygon. As luck would have it, I managed to secure one while downtown, thus leaving me only a couple of Gen 1 5km Pokemon to obtain.

Today also marked the official beginning of Gen 2 Pokemon, as something like 80 new specimens have been released into the wild. Of those 80, I managed to get my hands on Sentret and Ledyba. What a day!

It's been hard getting back into old school survival-horror
February 15, 2017

I've been playing Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare on PlayStation lately. I've had the game for a number of years, but never bothered to go through it because I wanted to play through the original 3 installments first. Unfortunately, at the time I purchased New Nightmare, obtaining the original 3 for PC was difficult without pirating, using DOSBox and tweaking my system or the games' files.

Thankfully, GOG held the answer. I registered there, bought the original trilogy in a three-pack and finished them. Now that I'm finally delving into New Nightmare, I have to say that it's both not at all worth it and so worth it.

My thoughts on Alpha Protocol
February 08, 2017

I recently finished Alpha Protocol, which is one of the first games I purchased on my Steam account. For those of you who don't know or remember this title from 2010, it's a mix of third-person shooter, espionage and RPG developed by Obsidian and published by Sega. It features a man named Mike Thronton who's caught in a political plot orchestrated by an arms company. I'm not going to write a review for it, so I figured I'd share my thoughts in a blog post instead (similar to my post on Brutal Legend).

Game Progress 2/6
February 06, 2017

There isn't a whole lot to add, other than having finished a couple of games recently. I also have three rough drafts for reviews written:

Metagal (PC)
Pocket Mortys (Android)
Tempo (32X)


Pocket Mortys (Android)
Finished the campaign, but I doubt I'll be playing any further than that. I will keep it on my phone for a bit, but I will not re-download it after I change phones (whenever that is...). It fulfilled my Pokemon-but-not-Pokemon craving.

Pokemon Go (Android)
My walking and constantly returning to Emerson Park paid off. I now have an Omanyte and a Kabutops. Sadly, this means I'm unlikely to catch anything else until Niantic rolls out new Pokemon, unless I'm lucky enough for a super rare nest to appear in the Spokane area. I'm down to only playing once in a great while, in the hopes of hatching an egg that might contain one of the Pokemon I need. It's really the only shot I have now. Sadly, all of the specimens I have left are fairly rare hatches: Togepi, Togetic (evolve from Togepi), Muk (evolve from Grimer, which rarely hatches from an egg), Porygon, Tangela, Aerodactyl and Hitmonchan.

Rambling About The Prey (1984)
February 04, 2017

Six twenty-somethings travel into the densest part of the woods so they can, ahem, pitch some tents. Little do they realize that a disfigured hermit stalks the grounds, bumping off anyone who humps in his woods. Truly, 1984's The Prey is high quality filmmaking that explores a serious contemporary issue: young'uns picking dumb places to bump uglies.
