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.

"Telling a rape joke harms no one, there's no victim."
Someone actually said this. My head is numb.
"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. >_>

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:
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.
Hey, congrats! The kid sounds really cute. :)
It's a shame you put this in your blog. I don't think people read these anymore, so that's probably why you didn't get any responses. I'm glad I checked, though! I was wondering when this day would come.
Good luck with raising the little guy. If we happen to see any activity from you in the next few weeks / months, then great. But if not, that's fine, too. You have a whole new chapter in your life now, and I hope you enjoy it.

Title: So my first three 2012 games happened to be Capcom titles

I'm greatly disturbed by this.
Lol...you might be right. Since, while CC was a long review, it wasn't 350K words long.
Title: Three months into the year, I finally bought a 2012 game.

I thought it'd take longer, honestly.
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.
I don't know if its just because I've had a lot to say about certain games like FF XIII and Chrono Cross, but I've been more in the 8-9 MB realm than the 5-6 MB realm recently. Might have to do a couple short-n-sweet reviews just in case I'm just getting overly verbose.
OD's Thought for the Day
Yeah. It's one of those that got quite a lot of mixed reviews but remained popular enough for Hideo Koshima to continue the franchise. Unlike Legend of Dragoon.
In any case, I gave the game an 8 after playing it for the first time ten years or so after it first came out, and I still thought it was pretty good. Not so confident about the other games in the series, but since I haven't played all of them yet (only played MGS2 so far), either.
I always (as in, both times thus far) enjoy reading about your expliots at Gamejam. Long may it continue!
Cool. You should post maps of every day for this week, then slow it to once every few days / every week as the game progresses. (Since I imagine after a while, a map a day will become too much).
