About Me:

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


I'm persistent, and maybe that's my downfall.

I've been suffering through Red Dead Revolver for the last couple weeks. I'm finding it quite tedious, repetitive, and sometimes even ridiculous and sloppy. It's stable and playable, but holy shit is it boring. I'm at a point where I want to just stop playing the game, but the voices in my head want me to keep playing and finish it, then possibly write a review for it.

What I'm mainly curious about is how connected this one is to Redemption. Is there a whole lot that carries over from Revolver to Redemption?

I would enjoy the game Sacred a lot more...

if it weren't so overloaded with goblins that aren't fun to fight. Especially the goblin shamans.

So I'm playing through Super Meat Boy...
December 30, 2010

...and I wonder if it's possible to hate every level of a game, but still love the game. Seriously, every level makes me want to punch babies, they're so infuriating. But god, is the game addictive.

The kinda, sorta obligatory "What the hell did you get for Christmas" topic.
December 24, 2010

I know it's early, but my wife and I already got to do some opening at her dad's place. We got a Canon digital camera with an 8 GB SD Card. I have many other things to open here and at my parents' place tomorrow. Oh, it shall be a great harvest. Mwahahahahahah!

Really GameFAQs? Majora's Mask is "Game of the Decade"?
December 23, 2010

I know it's not official yet, but it's pretty damn close. It's between that and Super Smash Bros. Melee, which is more fitted for the title. While I don't mind Majora's Mask, I felt it was a far cry from "Game of the Decade". A very far cry in fact.

Putting the finishing touches on my Dragon's Curse walkthrough
November 21, 2010

I've forgotten just how much a walkthrough can really burn you out on a game. I have a feeling before long I'm going to hate the game that I had just reviewed at a 9. The next FAQ I have in mind........a Dragon's Curse Item FAQ. Thankfully, I already have all the info I need. I am not just going to C&P from my walkthrough, but actually write new info. That will be the last DC FAQ I will ever do. No. More.

Now, let's just hope I don't start hating the Soul Blazer trilogy. They're the next in line for a good, hard FAQing!

In other news, I recently saw The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Aw... Silent awesomeness! If you like silent era horror flicks, check this one out. German expressionism FTW!
