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 had to be on campus by 7:45 AM at the latest. That means I was up since about five AM. Had to register and stand in a line for nearly two hours, did the processional, listened to the speeches, and walked across the stage. While both my folks are usually way too busy to see me, they at least dropped in to see me walk. They both left on their respective trips before the ceremonies were over. My grandmother, aunt, and uncle were there as well, so at least I had some support.
I started having back pain late last night. Thought I was just sore from just sitting at my desk for so long, so I thought I could just sleep it off. After laying down for a little while, the pain spread to my side and gut. It hurt so much that laying down in any position hurt like Hell. I knew I wasn't going to get any sleep, so I went to the hospital get to get checked out. A few shots, some blood extraction, a scanning, and urine sample later, the docs told me I have a kidney stone. They gave me a prescription for Vicodin and told me to go home. The exhaustion and the morphine in my body caused me to sleep over 12 hours straight.
It's like a blend of Killer 7's weird stuff and God Hand's characters, with some Dynasty Warrior-eqsue button mashing combat mechanics and a little bit of GTA mixed in. And it's really, really violent.
I'm only about thirty some-odd stars in, but this blows away any of the Mario titles in recent years. It's like all those Bowser levels from Mario 64, but much longer and better designed. There are tons of references (some more subtle than others) to previous games as well.
Here's #400: Big Rigs:
I submitted a bash review for a crappy Dragon Ball Z trading card game for the DS, so it'll be 401 reviews tomorrow. I'm also formulating reviews for RE4 Wii and Super Mario All-Stars. After numerous recommendations, I picked up Odin Sphere yesterday. While I like the fact that Atlus made a beat'em/RPG that doesn't suck, the slowdown and limited combat mechanics definitely hinder the game from real greatness. Of course, that probably won't stop Atlus fanatics from snagging every copy...
Now that E3 is done, hopefully Veasey and Bacon will come back and focus on that suggestions topic on the review board. I hope that something beneficial actually comes from it.

**** that. FFTA certainly doesn't deserve 1750 word reviews. 1500 maybe, but that's pushing it. I went back and added a bunch of unnecessary filler, over-explained much of the gameplay, and added far too many adjectives. I'd go back and edit it after it gets posted, but I won't get home from work before Bacon leaves for the weekend. Bleh. Expect an excessively trimmed-down copy in the near future.
As some of you know, I'm a bank teller. This woman comes in wanting to cash a $3000 check. She had the right ID, even looked like the person in the picture and had similar signatures. I look over the account she referenced on the back of the check and found no problems. I cash the check, give it to her. Then she gets greedy and tries to take out another $4000 from one of the accounts, stating that she was going to buy a car with it. That made me suspicious; what the hell kind of car dealership needs all cash? So I start looking over "her" other accounts (she had four of them). There was only one warning flag on a single account, stating that the customer's purse had been stolen today. When someone gets their stuff stolen, the bank is supposed to put flags on ALL the accounts. But since it
