Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
It's Reso podcast recording day today. Or rather, tonight. Other commitments dictate we have to do this month's the day before deadline, meaning A) my workload has just increased again, and B) I'm having to plan the show without having read everyone's copy, and without knowing what sort of reviews all the games are getting.
I think I know the scores for most of them, at least. Except one enormous release that Pete Hulme is rush-playing for deadline. His initial response was "very disappointing," but that was only after a couple of hours. What game could that be? Hmm?
I'm buying a Playstation 2 tonight. I sold my last one for fuck all pounds a couple of years ago when I was skint, and my girlfriend's been nagging me ever since to get another one.
Someone is being kind enough to sell us one, with four games, for £30. Mad skills. It'll be interesting to see what I can pick up for it - and I can finally play the Persona series. Hooray!
I've set up a new blog for a more general collection of my nonsense thoughts. Will probably be cross-posting and linking a lot, though, and will be remanining very firmly here as well.
On this new page, I've just written the first real piece I've ever done about film. Or, at least, the first piece about a specific film. Not A Review has spanned into another dimension...
...is really worth playing if you have a PC copy of Deus Ex.
Read my thoughts by clicking on that link over there. I'm so lazy I can't be bothered hyperlinking.
I'm also desperate for a poo.
Does it seem like a feasible time to start a reviews competition? Has anyone else got one planned? Am I stepping on anyone's shoes? Is everyone too busy already? Am I worrying too much?
This week, my workload includes:
The Nameless Mod review for here.
Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures: Fright of the Bumblebees review for here.
Mevo & The Grooveriders review for here.
New Redjetson album review for The Line of Best Fit.

Editor's column for Reso.
Editing down about 30,000 words of Reso stuff into a handy, bite-sized e-zine.
