Polishing off some reviews
April 01, 2015

For about the last two weeks I've been attempting to put my WWF Raw (32X) review to rest, as well as touch up my rough drafts for Space Panic and Zaxxon (both for Colecovision). Around the same time, I also decided to start sending myself to bed a little bit earlier so I can catch up on lost sleep.

Also, my younger son decided to start teething, which means little sleep for him.

...which means "so much for trying to catch up on sleep" for me.

The Sims: Your source for nightmare fuel
March 27, 2015


A face not even a mother could love.


She's literally stuffing her face.


It's a good thing I'm not this kid's mother. I'd be afraid of him slurping my soul through my boob.


"Kill... me..."


Damn it, Childs, torch it!

Halloween reviews update
March 22, 2015

As I mentioned before, my old hard drive had to be reformatted because one of the partitions became corrupt. I also mentioned that some of my reviews were lost during this event, and a few of them were for movies I planned on reviewing this year. It's been a while since I've seen those movies, and I honestly don't entertain the possibility of watching any of them again any time soon. Besides, it's not like they were classics or anything... The replacements are shown below:

HG
-Monster in my Pocket (NES)--Rough draft complete
-Legacy of Kain series
 -Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain (PS)--Rough draft complete
 -Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver (PS)--Rough draft complete
 -Soul Reaver 2 (PS2)
 -Blood Omen 2 (PS2)
 -Legacy of Kain: Defiance (PS2)
-Alone in the Dark series

Gaming Progress VIII

The only news I have to share before diving into this is that I have downloaded all of the DLC I want for Dragon Age: Origins, and will probably be starting that game again soon. The only thing I didn't download was the Awakening add-on, which I'll probably pick up (regardless of the reviews posted on this site) after I've completed Origins.

That having been said...:

It has ended. Again.

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver (PlayStation)
My copy of Soul Reaver and my PS3 decided they didn't like each other anymore.

I had gotten most of the way through the Silent Cathedral, was maybe a puzzle or two away from dealing with Zephon, and then I met an untimely end when Raziel jumped through a wall and plummeted into the darkness beneath the game. Since then, my PS3 decided that it would neither load my file nor allow me to start a new game. I can reach the title screen via PS3, but I can't play Soul Reaver on it. No big loss. Playing the game on PS3 totally sucked balls anyway because it was laggy as all get out--the opposite of what was intended to be one of the the game's major strengths when it was released on PlayStation.

Gaming Progress VI: Damn you, Kain! You are not God!
March 07, 2015

I aimed to have this blog up last weekend. However, circumstances kept me from doing so. It's been a rough week, let me tell you. I was the team lead this week for work (my job's lead, which is not the same as a supervisor, alternates between three people, which includes me), and we got hammered with surgeries, and consequently/literally tons of bloody instruments. I've endured the harshness, though, and am currently enjoying an IPA before doing something more productive.

I've finished two rough drafts for reviews, one for BC Racers and one for Space Panic. I aim to have reviews for Zaxxon and Crossbow on Atari 2600 in rough draft mode before too long.

Anyway...

It just now occurred to me...
February 28, 2015

That 1942 was my 300th review with HonestGamers. I'm thrilled to have been writing here that long, but at the same time, I wanted to write something else for my 300th. Oh well...

Initially, I thought about adding to the long list of Super Mario Bros. 3 reviews. Unfortunately, I've been dragging my feet on that one for the last few years, and does this site really need another 10/10 review for SMB3? I'll probably still write one eventually anyway.

I also debated buying and reviewing the 300 game on PSP, but I don't currently have the heart to suffer through what will most likely be a painfully average licensed strategy game.
