Title: And I have a project due friday... >_< Posted: March 06, 2006 (12:56 PM)
Turns out that while I placed last in usurper's contest (what I had been expecting), I still got a decent score; 70. I can't say I agree with it, but it's all good. Thanks for the quick results, usurper; I'd have touched this up and submitted it to Zig's contest if I weren't still waiting for a critique from whoever here has locked it. Next time, I'm definitely in.
I sent off a speed run of THPS3 for PS2 not too long ago to SDA (speeddemosarchive.com), and it's gotten a verifier, which means in due time I'll find out if it's accepted or rejected. It was a pretty mediocre run; about half way through I made some nasty stupid decisions while trying to switch things up, but the run I sent still ended up my fastest attempt, so whatever. If it's accepted and someone beats it, I'll be back at it, because I know exactly what goals to replace with what others. I'm sure I can secure sub-10 minutes when I look at how everything would play out. That said, I'm on to my THAS story mode run. Hurrah and all that.
I think I'll also be submitting my SM64DS review here with a critique request, see how well that one goes too. For the next while I'll likely be requesting critiques with every submission until I think I've learned enough to tackle making a great review on my own. I've also been reading a lot of the 'professional' HG reviews as of late, and I really must say that Zig has talent. I loved his Drakengard 2 review. I want to get my hands on that game now, and for the most part I hate hack-and-slash'ers. That's kinda scary ;>_>
Actually, to tell the truth, after I read Drakengard 2 I've only been reading Zig's reviews as of late. When I get through them good and well enough I'll move on >_>. That's crazy talent. I did squeeze a read of the new Guitar Hero review in by midwinter, though. Makes me want to read more of his stuff, too.
To sum up: I have a THAS speed run to do, touching up of True Crime, reviews from the greats to read and I'm enjoying each one of those. How I'll get enough sleep for school this week is beyond me.

Thanks for the kind words ^_^
Drakengard 2 is a great game. You should definitely at least give it a try!
Your review will be eligible for KOR round 4... just post a link once the topic is announced (and the review is up) and it's all good.
