I write about video games and horror-related items. Also, I wear a hat.
Anyone participating in it this year, or have you participated before? I had originally planned to, but I already had a novel started that I don't want to abandon. I'm hoping to get this one published, possibly with a local publishing company, though Spokane doesn't seem to be interested in anything spooky or weird, which this one definitely is.
Around the time I started going to college, I decided it was time to upgrade from the uncomfortable contraption I was using for a gamepad--one that looked like a Batarang--for something more comfortable and with more buttons. I learned from this experience to avoid Gravis gamepads like the plague, as I bought yet another that didn't work.
Instead, I shelled out the extra money and yielded to the might of a Saitek P750. That controller and I saw many reviews, many FAQs, and many questionable downloads together.
As you may recall, I downloaded Steam not long ago. I've since downloaded a lot of free games, demos, and even bought some other games. The only game I've purchased that I haven't tried so far is Titan Quest, which I picked up tonight. Just thought I'd give some early impressions (not reviews, mind, but impressions) of what I've played.
Reviews will probably be trickling out at this point. I'm working on a new novel. No, this doesn't mean I've published one before, though I have two I still need to touch up and publish, as well as a bunch of short stories. Still waiting to hear back from Cutting Block Press on one short I sent them.
I have several reviews I want to do as well:
Machine Head (PS)
Illusion of Gaia (SNES)
The review for Fate is up.
I've decided to join 2007 and get Steam. I'm planning on dl'ing Deus Ex and Arx Fatalis, but am overwhelmed by the large number of games I don't recognize. Any recommendations?
I love grabbing games for under $5, even if I know more than half of them will be crap. Spent about $30 and came home with:
Medal of Honor: Frontline (Xbox)
McFarlane's Evil Prophecy
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Virtua Fighter 4
Dragonball Z Sagas (PS2)
I've heard little good about any of the above. Maybe they'll inspire some reviews out of me.
Taggin' Dragon, or is it Tagin' Dragon like the title screen says? It raises the question of which one is the proper title, the actual spelling or the misspelling. Wouldn't that mean that the misspelling is then not a misspelling, but proper misspelling and... *head explodes*
Either way, it's an another awful unlicensed game by Sachen featuring dragons that look like mutated puppies. It's pretty boring, but it's not particularly painful.
