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.

So I just finished Trauma Center 2 (for the very first time) in a single sitting...

On Normal difficulty, no less. My thumb has been seriously brutalised. Flexing = ouch!

But hey, it was worth it (sleep deprivation talking here).

TC2 is a superb update to the DS original IP. The sharp, cel-shaded-esque art style of the Wii versions has translated back to the small screen rather well, and if you aren't an astute fella(like many random YouTube surfers), you probably won't be able to discern much, if anything, between this and the Wii games. Consider that a knock to the Wii's lacking hardware.

Nngh, stomach cramps...

And so, I stumble across my long-forgotten HG blog. For some reason, I'd like to share my Top 10 Video Game Series. So here it is:

10) TimeSplitters
9) Devil May Cry
8) Mega Men
7) Final Fantasy
6) Tekken
5) Prince of Persia
4) Metal Gear Solid
3) Castlevania
2) Super Mario
1) The Legend of Zelda

Gameplay takes precedence; next comes consistency. Of noteworthy mention are: Contra; Splinter Cell; Time Crisis; Resident Evil; Onimusha; 2D Sonic; Klonoa; Kirby; R-Type; Gradius/Parodius; Soul Calibur; SSX; WarioWare; Call of Duty; Phoenix Wright; Streets of Rage; Star Fox; God of War; Metal Slug; Earthworm Jim; Mario Kart; Sly; Warcraft; CD Tomb Raider; Advance Wars; Persona; Metroid. Phew!

Because I promised one more Top 10 list... (response to bluberry)
May 14, 2008

Top 10 reasons why lustercut makes me want to kill somebody?

10. Because lust is a sin
9. Because "cut" has injurious connotations
8. Because "lustercut" is such a dumb name
7. Because I said it'll kick your ass, and it will
6. Because you can't take it like a man
5. Because it's programmed to make you feel like killing things
4. Because it rips up your ass
3. Because anything which touches your ass deserves to die
2. Except your woman, but then the lust ain't a woman
1. And even if it was a woman, it still shouldn't be slamming something sharp up your ass

Current tally: 17
May 14, 2008

Okay, this'll be it for the meantime, I think. (I might do one more tonight before I leave for my 2-day conference, but then that's it. Period.) The best ones imho are everything after The Top 10 Sword-wielders, inclusive. If I had to pick my favourites - MUST-READS(!) - they would have to be:

* The Top 10 Strange & Unconventional Weapons
* The Top 10 Sword-wielders
* The Top 10 Spiritual Successors
* The Top 10 Unique and Inspiring Gameplay Features
* The Top 10 kickass games that will kick your ass

And the BEST one would be:

* The Top 10 Most Entertaining Speed Runs

Honestly, check that last one out. Check out the links provided, too. And brace yourself!

=)
