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.
I'm moving to Oregon at the end of September and my girlfriend and I need to trim down our possessions and fund our trip. I hate to spam, but I'm selling games, books and movies and I'm willing to negotiate the price with any of you on anything you might be interested in. If you're looking for stuff, please help us out and check out the links!

Singularity is a game with a great premise: what happens to the present when someone makes a change in the past. Michael J. Fox squeezed three Back to the Future movies out of it, and the first two Terminator movies built a franchise out of it too, so the writers at Raven definitely had room to do something special with the plot. And for the most part, they did well. The plot is genuinely interesting. Our protagonist travels to a mysterious Russian research facility in the Pacific to find that time itself is unraveling on the island. We have no idea what's happening, but early on, we're sucked back into 1955 and we make a decision of significant consequence while doing what seems right: saving an NPCs life. When we return to the present, the US has been defeated
I thought I might as well update this thing. I'll do it GameFAQs style.
RP - I wrote up a Full Auto 2 (PS3) review a couple of days ago, and about a week before that, I reviewed MLB 2K8 (PS3). I like my MLB review a lot more than I thought I would, considering that it's only the third or forth sports game I've reviewed, and two of those were for the DS.
In about 3 weeks, I head to Thailand for four glorious months of studying in Bangkok. DjSkittles, my real-life best friend, will be joining me on the adventure.
And I'm starting to freak out.
I have so much I feel like I have left to do before I go. I have to delegate all of my responsibilities out at Thunderbolt and show other staff members the ropes. I have to apply to the four graduate schools I'm hoping to go to. I still need my visa. I want to visit one of the schools I'm interested in. I need to work more so that I have more money. Uhg, too much to do!
I've got a four day weekend, so I used the time to catch up on some stuff. I started playing Hotel Dusk yesterday. I'd like the game a lot more if the main character didn't try so hard to go out of his way to be so smug. He's like the kid that tries too hard to fit in and everyone knows he's a bitch. I don't really know how much more of it I can stand truthfully. I also loaded up Rush for the PSP, which is a very average game. The damage modeling on the cars is pretty cool, but the actual textures on the cars are amazingly dull and flat. Thunderbolt's redesign is finally up. I think that looks great, but we're still catching up on some glitches. I just need to get myself interested in doing some actual school work for this "vacation" which is hard for some reason...
I've been incredibly busy lately.
I just finished an essay on nuclear proliferation for an essay contest and, of course, one of my professors also gave me information on another essay contest on US-European relations, so I have yet another paper on my plate (which, of course, is due on the same day as a paper for my Critical Thinking in Politics course).
