Title: Fuuuu, Halloween Game Review Troubles
Posted: October 26, 2012 (05:53 PM)
So I have one "horror"-themed game left to review that I'll be submitting the last day of October, but I keep running into problems. The game I originally intended to do was Majora's Mask, since, you know, the theme of the moon crashing and the various masks worn. But I didn't want to rush through the game for the sake of a review, so I went for something else.

That's when I decided on PS1's Reloaded, sequel to Loaded. I did this purely on the notion of the crazy character designs and ultra violence, plus I wanted to review the sequel. However, I ran into two problems, the first being that the game really sucks, and that's an amazing accomplishment considering the first game wasn't hot in the first place. The second issue came as I made it halfway through Reloaded: my PlayStation controller's d-pad crapped out. Keep in mind, this game was published before Sony released the analog controller.

So now I'm in this situation of having to search for a last minute replacement, and I have one particular game in mind... but I won't name it. If that somehow goes to crap, too, I guess it's off to Xbox Live Arcade games. Hopefully there's a suitable one I can find.

Someone actually said this. My head is numb.

Title: Man, time flies by....

"Interestingly, writing this review gave me the craving to review Sonic the Hedgehog 2." - Me

I had this quote in the back of my head for a while, and I always thought it was something I wrote at the end of 2011... I checked, and I actually wrote it in 2010. Wow.

Oh, guess what game I'm reviewing next. >_>

I don't trust myself to try a never-ending MMORPG. There are too many great games with a definite ending that I still need to play first.

Title: Expect more retro coverage here from yours truly
Posted: June 27, 2012 (02:42 AM)
I decided that it's a bit silly how I have close to 300 games for the NES, SNES and Genesis that I basically never play, especially since I know that I love me some retro gaming. The main issue was that I didn't want to fiddle around with having three separate retro systems hooked up to my television, which already is surrounded by newer systems.

The solution brought itself to my attention several months back: it's the Hyperkin RetroN 3. The problem was that I had a hard time "pulling the trigger" on a purchase, because technically I already have the hardware to play my games. It's in boxes here in my apartment.

Finally, I decided that if this would help me get more use out of my games, it was worth doing. So I made the purchase, along with some knockoff NES and SNES controllers (which are remarkably good and cheap). Apparently, with patents expired, people can make great hardware to play all these old games.

The system arrived today, and I have already reviewed a game as a result. I look forward to (hopefully) playing through and reviewing plenty more retro titles from my collection in the months ahead, if there's interest. I do have a lot of great games--or potentially great games that I've not yet played, despite owning them--that aren't yet reviewed on the site. I'd like to see HonestGamers get back to posting a nice selection of reviews for those older titles, not just the new stuff... though I plan to keep up with that, too, with help from freelancers and staff.

So anyway, that's an update from me. I hadn't posted in this blog for awhile, and I figured this was as good a reason to post as any!

Title: Silent Hill: The Room -- In Pictures!
Posted: June 26, 2012 (10:52 AM)
Horror games -- good horror games -- go out of their way to make yu feel like you're a/ always being watched and b/ there is always something just behind you. It's supposed to make you feel uneasy at all times. Silent Hill: The Room knows that, but does not know how to employ a subtle touch. So:



..... yeah.

Title: Site Changes
Posted: May 06, 2012 (03:03 AM)
There's a new landing page for the site, which I know is always a surprise but I hope that you'll all find the new layout useful. It should more effectively highlight a variety of new content for people who visit the site for the first time, while the content that more regular users tend to enjoy most is right near the top of the page (or requires less scrolling to reach).

I've posted in more detail on the forums. You can view that topic right here.

In other news, I've taken additional steps to disable iframes on the forum, both in messages and in signatures, as they can serve as a security exploit. I know some people like to use things that include iframes, but there's no telling who might control the content on the other end, so it was an appropriate change. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Good luck, man. Every now and then, something comes along that takes priority over reviewing video games online, and I suppose this just about registers as such.

Title: His name was Marauder Shields
Posted: March 19, 2012 (02:49 AM)


He tried to stop you. He knew what was ahead. If only you'd realized what he was trying to do.

He tried to save you from the awful, awful ending. But he failed.

In life he was Marauder Shields. In death, he was Marauder Health.

He is the true hero of Mass Effect. May he rest in peace.

It's worth every penny, but don't forget, you'll also have to pay for your own airfare and lodging! I'd maybe let you sleep on the floor in my front room, since you would have to come all that distance, but you seemed just a little too excited about the walk on the beach.

Title: Conclusion: Everyone's a Sonic fan.
Posted: March 03, 2012 (10:39 PM)
After playing various Sonic games for the past two decades and listening to various opinions on Sonic, whether they're from followers or just gamers, I've come to the conclusion that everyone is a Sonic fan. Whenever a new Sonic game comes out, there's always a "passionate" debate or conversation, 99% of the time when I'm not looking for one, about what each gamer's favorite Sonic game is.

Surprisingly, it's actually really different from one another. And they will stand by that game, defending it from disagreers, and dismissing the rest of the games in the series as crap, stating the series is dead and will never return to its former glory (i.e. their favorite Sonic game). This has been going on for nearly two decades, and I really doubt it's going to stop as long as more Sonic games are released.

Of course, this could apply to any other game franchise, but the Sonic fanbase seems disturbingly "faithful" in their beliefs. Downright creepy. I wish not to provide examples in order to keep my sanity.
