I need to stop unintentionally try writing reviews around the weekends when my work schedule bounces around and sleep is nonexistent... Probably the main reason I stopped my Oniken review and close to stopping for another game.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 18, 2014
Maybe it's just me... but I don't understand the appeal of rebuying a game, at full price, that just came out a year prior and sold a billion dollars in its first few days, just because it now has slightly improved graphics and a first person mode.

Turbo Dismount: Cute, point-based crash game, but only a select few of the dev-made courses are worth replaying over and over again. You pretty much have to rely on fan-made maps.
Wendell B @pickhutNov 12, 2014
I've played Oniken, and for some reason I can't complete a review for it. I know what I want to write, but for 7 days, all I can show for it are 2 paragraphs. For now, I'm just gonna play something else. It's a nice, Ninja Gaiden-style (NES) game, though.

I love how Freddy 2 hasn't been out for more than a day, and it seems like people already expect everyone else to know how the AI functions, the names of the animatronics, and the "lore". I'm having Portal 1 flashbacks.

Downloaded Valet Parking 1989 from the DSiWare library thinking I could get some mileage for a review. Turns out to be a very simple, overhead "don't touch the sides" management game. Even with the 80s theme, I doubt I could write a decent-sized review...
Wendell B @pickhutOct 23, 2014
So, I just went on Steam to do a quick search for something else, and I'm greeted on the front page by... Slave Zero. Now that's a plot twist.
Wendell B @pickhutOct 22, 2014
I'm currently browsing the DSiWare catalog for the first time, and wow, there's a lot of games here I'd like to try out. This definitely kicks the crap out of the WiiWare's library...

Totally Forgot About File: Platinum Games developing a Legend of Korra game, and that it comes out this week. Might be the first time I'm not really interested in checking out a PG game... and this coming from a person who imported Anarchy Reigns.
Wendell B @pickhutOct 05, 2014
Has anyone here tried Shadow of Mordor? I'm not a LotR fan, but the way people are describing the game, how deep and varied the rivalries get, makes me want to check it out... if I had a next-gen console. I heard the PS3/360 ports have cutbacks.

Yesterday, I tried beating SNK's Sengoku for what feels like the millionth time over the last few years. I failed again. The game is just so disgustingly boring...

I know this isn't game-related, but something that's been really bugging me lately in Internet conversations is someone pulling the "I'm annoyed that you're annoyed by (comment)" post. It's a pretty weak and childish attempt to end a discussion.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 28, 2014
So a certain game I might review has compelled me to play NAM-1975 for the first time. It's definitely more goofy and entertaining than I thought it would be. The cutscenes are comedy gold, too.

Test Drive Le Mans: Since my Dreamcast is still out, I popped this in for a quick play. The car designs still look real pretty to this day, especially under the right lighting conditions.

Sports Jam: This is a ridiculously average game, maybe slightly below, but it has one of the goofiest characters I've seen in a video game. I'm tempted to review this instead of Virtua Tennis so I won't suffer through Doubles anymore.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 19, 2014
Virtua Tennis: I was willing to give the last Doubles botched win the benefit of the doubt... but the same thing happened in another Doubles match. Game just handed the other team a victory during my mid swing animation. This game's programming is weird.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 18, 2014
Virtua Tennis: They're still annoying, but Doubles are getting a little better because I remembered you can position your CPU partner. Also, the game LITERALLY gave up on me on my last Doubles match. (cont.)
Wendell B @pickhutSep 17, 2014
Virtua Tennis: The Doubles matches are the bane of my existence in World Tour mode. My CPU partners are the most incompetent players I've had to deal with in this game. I mean, Virtua Tennis is an engaging game, but there are times where I (cont.)
Wendell B @pickhutSep 13, 2014
Virtua Tennis: I feel like the controls aren't as responsive as they should be sometimes. I was going against the final opponent in arcade mode, and at times it felt like the game deliberately gave up on me even though I was able to make a shot.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 13, 2014
I was contemplating doing CART Flag to Flag as a second Dreamcast review this month, but remembered I tried two years ago and gave up halfway through its championship mode out of extreme boredom. Maybe Virtua Tennis... but the controller... gah.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 06, 2014
I want to write a new review so bad right now, either for Sniper Elite 3 or a Dreamcast game (for 9/9). Sometimes it really sucks being busy with other things in life. x_X
Wendell B @pickhutSep 04, 2014
So am I the only one who thinks and fears that Bayonetta 2 is going to bomb hard? I enjoyed the first game and want to play this, but, unless I'm looking in the wrong places, it seems like no one is looking forward to the sequel other than the core fans.
Wendell B @pickhutSep 03, 2014
Just saw a commercial about a movie where Liam Neeson has to find someone who was kidnapped, and I automatically thought it was Taken 3. It wasn't. Then I found out Taken 3 was an actual thing regardless. How many kidnapping movies is he going to star in?

Replayed the SE3 Hitler DLC again, and after browsing the achieve list, I discovered there's 7 unique ways to kill him. Would've been nice for the game to give me more than a few seconds to realize this, or better yet, implied within the mission. >_>
Wendell B @pickhutAug 31, 2014
Tried Sniper Elite III's Hitler DLC to see if Rebellion botched it like in V2. They pulled off the exact "blink and it's over" nonsense. Why can't I have a savory Hitler kill? Rebellion, have you never played NES Bionic Commando or Wolfenstein 3D??
