Masters

About Me:

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.


AlphaMarathon -- The final stretch!
September 03, 2018

I'm almost there!

But so many question marks remain. Aside from RFA, even the letters with games slotted in aren't a certainty.

#: 1943 KAI
E: ELEMENTAL MASTER
J: JACKIE CHAN'S ACTION KUNG FU
R: RIGID FORCE ALPHA
Y: YS - THE VANISHED OMENS


AlphaMarathon update
August 13, 2018

So I have most of my remaining letters accounted for. I can't decide between my two Q options... it depends on whether or not I have time to go back and replay Quackshot, which I have always wanted to review. If not, I'll go with Quartet, which I've just put a bunch of time into, so the experience (lame as it is) is still fresh.

J, X, and Y remain. Jotun doesn't really interest me, I've had too many stops and starts with Ys Books I & II, and it turns out that I hate Xexyz.

If anyone has any ideas, shoot.

#: 1943 KAI
A: ASTRO VIKING
E: ELEMENTAL MASTER
J: ?
N: NOGALIOUS
Q: QUACKSHOT
R: RETRO GAME CRUNCH
X: ?
Y: ?

______________


If I want to complete the AlphaMarathon, I have some work to do. Luckily, I have some ideas for games of all letters! Okay, most letters. Some letters?


#: 1943 Kai
A: ?
E: ELEMENTAL MASTER
I: IRO HERO
J: Jotun
N: Ninja Smasher
P: Pharaoh Rebirth +
Q: QUACKSHOT
R: RETRO GAME CRUNCH
X: ?
Y: Ys I Chronicles

Let's see how I do.

Journey and its ilk
May 16, 2012

I thought I'd crap out my thoughts on this game while they are still somewhat fresh. I hope that Journey lovers don't take this as a personal attack, because it's not.

I understand that my personal aesthetic may make me a poor candidate for appreciating games like Journey; indeed, I am so bored by this kind of stuff that I can't get far enough in the game to warrant writing a proper review.

But I have to ask to nobody in particular... what's the appeal? Bear in mind that I am the same hater of all things beautiful and stripped down who doesn't have much love for Ico and Shadow of the Colossus either.

But getting back to Journey: it's a very simplistic game. I may be wrong (again, I only passed 3 or 4 'levels') but here is a title where you can really make do with one button.

Over the top FPS games
September 19, 2011

I'm playing Killzone 3, and man is it ridiculous. I mean, clearly all FPS games have ridiculous plots and ideas, but this game made me laugh openly while playing. Perhaps they're doing it on purpose so as not to take themselves so seriously? That's gotta be it. The main character, Zev, and his loud mouthed buddy Rico are gunners on some sort of high altitude craft and where do they sit to operate the guns? ON TOP OF THE CRAFT. Like, right on top. No oxygen mask. There's no canopy, no nothing. They're not even strapped in. They stay on because they each have one foot hooked around a metal rail.

PlayStation Store finally back up!
June 03, 2011

I was so stoked when I checked it out this morning. There was a good amount of new stuff on offer too, but the free shit we anticipated is not available yet--boo.

Highlights for me: Bonk's Adventure and Bomberman '94!! This follows the Neutopia release of a few months ago.

I've got all these games already, but the idea is I can download them on my PSP and play them on the go now. And that's better than spending $300 for a used TurboExpress with dead pixels.
