About Me:

I knew at an early age that I wanted to make a career out of writing about games, and now I have. You'll find most of my stuff right here on HonestGamers, of course, but don't be surprised if my name pops up elsewhere. Living out my dream keeps me very busy, and I wouldn't have it any other way!


Concerning the Beatles...
September 11, 2009

What's your favorite album? You already know that 09-09-09 marked the release of The Beatles: Rock Band, the first rhythm game to incorporate Beatles music, but of course that game is missing a lot of their music despite having a generous track list.

You probably already know (or maybe not) that they've digitally remastered all of the albums from the group and are releasing them individually or as part of a box set throughout North America (and, I would presume, other regions nearer and dearer to the hearts of many Beatles fans). This looks like the best time in the last 30 years or so to collect and enjoy Beatles music.

CrispyGamer doesn't agree with New York Times game writer
September 10, 2009

So, some guy who writes for The New York Times in its "Games" section wrote a review of The Beatles: Rock Band that is possibly the worst review ever written. CrispyGamer comments on such things here:

http://www.crispygamer.com/features/2009-09-10/those-games-mean-nothing-to-me.aspx

I read through the whole article and, if you're serious about games criticism, I suggest that you do the same. After you've done so, I hope that you'll come back here to share your thoughts. I'm interested in hearing what some of you think.

Review number 500 is posted...
August 25, 2009

Well, I've now officially posted my 500th review on the site, excluding old reviews that I deleted a long time ago. I find it fitting that the game I reviewed was Nintendo-published, since Nintendo is the company that ignited my passion for games and my desire to write about them more than 20 years ago. I'd hoped that the 500th game would be something special, but I wasn't going to go out of my way to make that happen. Fortunately, Nintendo managed to make it happen for me. Metroid Prime Trilogy arrived here a week ago and enjoying its content these past few days has been a real treat.

Just what I needed...
August 23, 2009

So, I'm apparently coming down with a cold again. Two nights ago, I felt it starting and I drank a lot of echinacea tea and orange juice. It seemed to fight it off and last night I felt just fine. Today, I felt the cold coming back and I drank some tea and orange juice but to no avail. It managed to get a hold. Tonight at work, I could feel the cold getting worse by the minute and now it's a full-blown cold. I've made myself soup and I'm drinking OJ and tea, but I think for the first time in something like 15 years, I'm destined to have two miserable colds in a single year. Crap...

How the hell could you give hunk of garbage like Wild Arms 4 and Disgaea series a 10, but Persona 3 a 9 ?

Here is Electronic Gaming Monthly's review of Persona 3

I hate my day job with a fiery passion...
August 20, 2009

I hate my day job with a fiery passion. I'm rather confident that I will soon either walk out in a fit of complete and utter disgust... or I'll get fired. The latter could happen whether I screw up or not, as several long-time employees have recently been let go for minor infractions that elsewhere probably wouldn't even warrant a frown from a manager. It's absurd, really.

Weezer's seventh album...
August 16, 2009

So, today I heard part of one of the less over-played Weezer songs on the radio and when I got home, I decided to check out the official site to see how things are going for the band.

Apparently, they're going pretty good. Last Wednesday, they just announced that a seventh studio album is officiallyin the works and will be releasing on October 27, 2009. There's no name and the only detail so far is that the first single will release in August and is called "(If you're wondering if I want you to) I want you to".
