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!
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
An AAA title apparently.

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.
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".
Currently, the front page of the site lists the most recent 8 reviews from staff and freelancers and I wrote 4 of them. That's a lot of output from one person and I'm starting to feel it. My reviews are probably suffering, too.
Anyway, I'm now at 499 reviews posted on the site and there are around 4 more that I plan to write over the next month or two. I'll probably take my time with those because the truth is that I'm getting burnt out on reviewing. I don't want to force myself to some sort of breaking point and then never review again. That would be far too melodramatic and I'm no good at posting about retirement.
I am in the process of writing a review for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra on the PlayStation 3. I've made several attempts at an intro and spent awhile on the one that I'm including below, but it's just too long and probably not interesting enough to serve as a worthwhile introduction to a review that will probably be fighting to stay below a certain word count as it is.
Therefore, I'm including the intro here for posterity. That's about it...
So, I've had most of the last few days off from work, but I haven't been working on the site much. Why? Because I've had a cold. That sounds like the sort of thing that would inspire sarcastic comments of "Boo hoo, poor baby has a cold!" and I can understand that response, but my immune system is weird. I don't often get sick with a cold or anything else, but when I do... I really do.
My typical cold lasts me anywhere from one week to a month, which makes it a good thing that they don't come along all that often. The worst of my current one seems to be over, but I'm still avoiding sweets, still guzzling immune system-boosting tea and orange juice, still eating hardly anything at all these past few days. Another day or two and I should be golden again...
