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.

A nest migration occurred on Wednesday, bringing Kabuto nests back to town. I've been occasionally driving to Emerson Park to nab them. I should have a Kabutops before the next migration. Additionally, I decided to set Omanyte as my buddy so I can earn the last three candies. I'm up to 49 right now, so another few kilometers and I'll have Omastar as well.

Got through a few easy puzzles in Carnby's campaign, one of which wouldn't work properly at first. I ended up getting a key out of a painting when I solved it. After that, I freed Aline and moseyed on to a room where I met an old man. I saved the game right after that.

Hook review updated
January 28, 2017

My review of the film-inspired brawler Hook received an overhaul, mostly to weed out a lot of the prattle and bring it closer to my current standard of writing. How about some trivia?

-The earliest version of this review went live at GameFAQs well over a decade ago. I originally scored it a 9/10 and I think it was maybe four paragraphs long.

-I rewrote it there around 2009, bumping the score down to 8/10.

-A year or so later, I submitted a newer version of that review here with the score of 7/10.

-The new score is 6/10. Maybe with the passage of a couple more decades, I can safely admit that this game is actually crap (well, it isn't actually).

Still waiting for a proper update, a good nest migration, a 10 km egg or a worthwhile event before fully getting back into this game. I'm not going to bother with Pokemon Duel.

Got the discs buffered and they play properly now. I started Carnby's campaign, died and restarted. The last thing I did was kill a creature in the sewers before moseying on to another area. I used a save charm there and am reluctant to continue. I have a feeling this will be a tough title to get through. It's creepy, but also quite difficult. Its controls are the usual tank-style, but a tad over responsive. It's difficult to actually guide Carnby without over-correcting and running as if Carnby is drunk.

Welp, I evolved Voltorb into Electrode, thereby giving me one fewer Pokemon to catch. I'm not sure how to go about getting the last few (Togepi, Togetic, Muk, Porygon, Tangela, Aerodactyl, Kabutops, Omastar and Hitmonchan), aside from constantly hatching eggs and meeting disappointment. After I hatch these next few eggs (three 10 kms), I'm going to lay low in the game until the next major update or a nest migration. In the case of the latter, I can only hope that there will be a verified Omanyte nest I can reach (the only one in town is currently in Lincoln Park, which is closed due to heavy snowfall) or a Kabuto nest.

I'm up to 38 Voltorb candies via buddy system. I'm approaching the point where I'll only be playing intermittently, at least until we have a major update or event. As it stands, the last few Pokemon I need rarely appear and rarely hatch from eggs (though there are some I can earn through the buddy systen): Togepi (and Togetic, by extension), Tengela, Porygon, Electrode, Muk, Aerodactyl, Hitmonchan, Omastar and Kabutops. I have Grimer, Omanyte and Kabuto, so a few of those are possibilities. The rest are either regional exclusives I probably won't be able to obtain until the trading system launches--if it ever does--or unreleased Pokemon, like most of Gen 2 or the legendaries.
