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!
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.

Last night, I stayed up until 4AM. This morning, my wife woke me a bit before noon to let me know that I was about to miss a Blazers game. I'd mentioned wanting to watch more of those this season, since I like basketball but haven't actually watched a full televised game since... wow, since getting married!
Anyway, it was a good game to watch. Blazers took an early lead over the Pistons and at one point led by 14 points in the first quarter, but then the Pistons brought in their bench players and started to make things more competitive. There were two points in the game where the Pistons actually led. Neither point was at the end of the game, where the Blazers led by 11 points.
I'm so tired of system updates, particularly on the PSP. That system just doesn't see many new game releases. It's mostly just multi-platform stuff that almost no one cares about or maybe a game or two a month that anyone gives a fig about.
This month, that game is Star Ocean: First Departure. I've had it for a bit, but tonight I finally took it out of the shrink wrap and settled down to enjoy playing it.
Then I discovered that my wife had been using the PSP and had let the battery die. So I found where she left the charger, plugged it in next to my bed--where I was going to play it, because that's what handheld systems are for--and turned on the power. After resetting date and time, the game started to load.
There's an interesting news article here relating to Batman and legal actions apparently being brought against the filmmakers:
