Obviously, if I have a profile on this site, it means that I play video games. I also happen to write, and the two have made a harmonious combination for a hobby. I mainly write FAQs and reviews, and *try* to stick to one of these categories:
-RPG and non-linear adventure games
-Anything with horror or b-movie elements
-Anything unique, obscure, or just plain weird
Sounds broad, but it also means you probably won't see a Super Mario Bros. 3 review from me any time soon.

Type: Review Game: Sword of Hope (Game Boy) Posted: April 29, 2013 (09:25 PM)
To me, it seems like Kemco focused too much of its attention on Sword of Hope's presentation and not enough in categories that actually matter. The end result is an RPG that serves as a mere skeleton for a great game.
Type: Review Game: Final Soldier (TurboGrafx-16) Posted: January 21, 2013 (06:32 PM)
This isn't to say Final Soldier is a terrible game. It's stable and has a few fun moments, but it doesn't compare to the bulk of entries in its genre. Unfortunately, you have to chew through a lot of mediocrity to get to the juicy bits.
Type: Review Game: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PlayStation) Posted: January 20, 2013 (06:54 AM)
I cherish so many facets of this game that even its minor flaws--which are heavily overshadowed its stellar exploration elements, strong atmosphere, breathtaking visuals, and fantastic soundtrack--occupy a special place in my heart.
Faria should have charmed me with a cute fantasy world and antiquated (but loveable) RPG concepts. Instead, it bored me with unoriginality and frustrated me with its poor implementation of challenge, only to bore me in a different way once the challenge abruptly vanished.
Type: Review Game: Batman Returns (NES) Posted: December 14, 2012 (09:34 AM)
When I think of effective beat 'em ups, adjectives like "awesome" and "badass" come to mind, and those are the last words I'd use to describe a gang of combat-trained circus performers. Sorry, but I'll take broken bottles and seedy night clubs over frills, grease paint, and leotards any day.
Type: Review Game: Mario Bros. (Miscellaneous) Posted: November 30, 2012 (04:12 AM)
For every time that I adapted to a situation, the game established new methods to disturb my equilibrium. For instance, it introduced new opponents like flies and crabs, the latter of which required two bumps to incapacitate. Dealing with those two, though, wasn't nearly as challenging or frustrating as navigating icy floors, which made the already-slick control response more difficult to work with.
Type: Review Game: Kid Klown in Night Mayor World (NES) Posted: November 16, 2012 (02:52 PM)
Kid Klown in Night Mayor World is a cute, forgettable, rudimentary platformer on NES. Itís one of a legion of mediocre sidescrollers that were released throughout the '80s and '90s that will likely be lost in the annals of gaming history, where they will be overshadowed by a handful of spectacular members from their genre. In other words, play those other titles instead.
