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 reviewed Black today. It took me about a week after playing it to get the words out. What an incredibly blown opportunity to create a truly memorable FPS. I've been playing a bit of Untold Legends: The Warriors Code and think I'm going to review that game too. I already reviewed Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade and they're essentially the same game, so it shouldn't be too hard.
I have Darkwatch coming for Xbox and Medievil coming for the PSP, but I have finals this upcoming week and it's the last full week I can spend with my girlfriend before she goes home for the summer, so I don't really expect to play them at all for a while.
First, I'd like to thank Janus for his comments on my review.
Second, I want you all to know that Tool's new album rocks my pants. Hard.
Third, Black is five hours long, has respawning enemies, and you can't jump. You also can't climb over shin-high barriers.
I wrote a review for Stubbs the Zombie and it was posted tonight. I've never really tried to write a review like that (without directly referencing the game or the player), but when I sat down to write the review it seemed like an appropriate game to try it with. It needs quite a bit of work I think, but I really enjoyed writing it. It's one of the most creative reviews I've written ever.
A lot of people out there are going away for the summer. I'm not. I have to save money for school and visiting my girlfriend who lives four hours away from me when we're not in school. But I still have some reviewing plans:
My reviewing goals:
- Revise a substantial portion of my review catalog.
- Do well in the Team Tournament.
- Write at least one review a week.
That's that. Nothing else major, writing wise. As for life, the usual stuff. Visit the girlfriend, make some cash, hang out with my friends. Nothing too major, but something that's sure to be fun.
I stole this idea from The Genj:
English 220: Modern Culture and Media
- This is the first writing course I've taken in over a year. I guess we'll have to examine how modern forms of media like comic books, movies, music video, cartoons and shit like that and figure them out. It sounds like it could be pretentious.
POL 319: International Organizations
- I'm really looking forward to this class. I don't know a whole lot about the EU, WTO, and the UN and I want to learn more and understand how they operate.
POL 497 (Senior Seminar): Global Security
- I'm almost done with my major, so I'm taking my senior seminar a year early. We look at how global security has changed over the years and discuss it. It seems interesting enough.
SPA 101: Elementary Spanish
I signed up for GameFly today. I don't have money for new games when I'm at school, but I do have the $15 a month for their service. I bought a game from them once that worked fine, so I'm going to try this service out. I added in all the games I wanted to get from them over the next few months today.

Jason Venter told me a long time ago when I wrote a review for Zone of the Enders that I should read Ender's Game, because my introduction was awful and I made a reference about the book because it had "Ender" in it and I was awfuler back then. So I took it out of the library for Spring Break.
I just finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix a few weeks ago. My girlfriend bought me Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and I finished that in about three days. Then I read The Da Vinci code, which was gripping but a little annoying and now I'm reading Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk.
