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!
Heath Ledger won an Oscar for his performance in The Dark Knight, which is pretty fantastic and in a lot of ways related in my mind to the site. I remember when true posted that the role had gone to Heath Ledger, and I remember thinking "Wow, what an odd choice." I remember when pup posted that he had been found dead in his apartment and remember being stunned. We were born something like three days apart, Heath Ledger and I, on opposite sides of the world.
So Heath Leger won an Oscar, and the only thing I can think of, besides the fact that it's a shame he's gone when he had so much promise, is how crazy I would've said you were if just a short time ago you told me that he'd be winning that particular Oscar.
Well, today I got a wireless router that actually works (the wireless functionality on the D-Link one stopped functioning some time ago, alas). The unit I got is a Belkin and setup was a breeze. I also got a wireless card for my wife's PC so that she can be online again, which hadn't been possible for a bit after we rearranged the apartment.
So, I didn't post any new reviews in December, thanks to work I was doing on a game guide. And January is now halfway through, so I figured that it was time to review a game. Here's the link:
Castlevania Judgment (Wii)
I'm a bit rusty but mostly I like how the review turned out. I'll try to stay in better practice as I continue through the year. You'll probably be seeing a lot of Wii game reviews from me in the weeks ahead, so watch for that!
Counter: 43 reviews to go until I reach 500!
2009 is the year that I will write a fantastic trilogy in the fantasy genre, the year I will top 500 reviews posted on HonestGamers, the year I will overcome the worst of my credit card debt and the year I will pay more attention to my physical condition. What is it for you?
I've been playing a LOT of The Last Remnant these past few weeks. A potential conflict of interest prevents me from posting a review, but I still thought I'd give you all a heads up on my thoughts on the game... since they differ in some ways from our official review we posted (though I felt that the score we awarded was fair).
This is for Genj:
You Can't Touch This!
The results topic for the recent alphabet olympics included a comment from one of the judges--Janus, I think?--that I would have done better to let my wife simply write down her impressions for the review. I said that probably wouldn't have worked too well, but now you get to be the judge. I found my wife's analysis of the game as I was cleaning up my office. Below you'll find what she thought of the game, cleaned up grammatically for easy consumption.
+ It's easy to pay the rent.
+ It's easy to move in.
