About Me:

I write about video games and horror-related items. Also, I wear a hat.


The future of Joe...
November 04, 2011

Well, finances are officially in the crapper. Bills are getting paid and the only debts we have are quite small (credit card bill for me, and less than $200 from my wife's hospital visit). Thankfully my insurance covers maternity stays 100%, so we don't have to worry about that. Still, it's apparent now more than ever that I need a second job.

As such, my reviewing time will decrease, maybe even disappear. I really hope not, because I'd like to continue both as an HG contributor and as a freelancer. I'm hoping for something that pays decently.

Impressions...
November 03, 2011

Taking a week off from reviewing, but will jump back in some time next week. In the meantime, I'd like to blather about two games:

Demon's Souls:
Oh, where have you been all my life? You've kicked my teeth in, ripped off my scalp, stabbed me in the groin, and did that one other painful thing. But I still keep coming back to you! Demon's Souls is pretty addictive so far. The first time I died and had to start over, I nearly tossed the game out the window. Instead, I started over (and over) until I felt more at home. Getting used to the game's mechanics and face-crushing difficulty helped.

I think that's it for horror reviews this year...
October 29, 2011

I need to let my brain rest. I've been pushing myself all week to get these reviews out, and my brain has finally said, "Enough already!" I wanted to cover Frankenstein: The Monster Returns and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, but there's always later. I still plan to drop a review on Halloween, though.

Halloween Ramblings part 1
October 13, 2011

Other than writing and videogames, what does Joe like? Horror flicks, thrillers and b-movies! Oh god, I could talk your ear off about the ridiculous, garish, gory, macabre, and downright effed up. So it's not a surprise when I say my favorite month is October. And what do I do every October except watch a slew of said films--the good and the bad--and find some place on the internet to gab about them?

I've been watching a lot this year, so I'm probably going to break this down into bite size portions and keep my ramblings to a minimum.

Working on hororr-themed games reviews for this month...
October 07, 2011

Christmas? Fourth of July? Birthday? Nah, I'm a Halloween guy all the way. I love horror movies, both the good and the bad, and I enjoy horror-themed games. Already did one for Castlevania II, and are some others I'd like to touch on (though I'm not guaranteeing that these ones will go live):

Cursed Mountain (Wii)
Silent Hill (PSX)
Friday the 13th (NES)
A Nightmare on Elm Street (NES)
-Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse/Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo/Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Ghoul School (NES)
-Frankenstein: The Monster Returns (NES)
Koudelka (PSX)


Possible, but not likely:
Wanted to do, but pretty much not happening due to sickness and such:
-The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Atari 2600)
