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!


Updating my list of games to purchase...
May 19, 2006

For my own reference, I'm including an updated version of my "games I still need to get" post. The good news is that I've made a lot of progress. I'm starting this list out with the names of the games I still have to get, rather than listing all the games I already got from before. I'd like to send a big thanks out to all the game publishers who haven't been releasing many good games lately. It makes it easier to go back and catch up on the ones I missed!

Game Boy Advance

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
Lufia 3

GameCube

Chibi-Robo
Cubivore
Fire Emblem
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Mario Strikers
Mega Man X: Command Mission
Pikmin 2

Nintendo DS

Advance Wars: Dual Strike
Kirby: Canvas Curse
Mario & Luigi 2

Console Patterns
May 09, 2006

Have you ever paid attention to the patterns consoles follow? I notice them from a Nintendo perspective. Here's how I see it:

Nintendo: Every other console, they make a huge leap to some new approach. NES/SNES (good, old-fashioned 2D gaming), SNES/N64 (good, old-fashioned 3D gaming), Wii/??? (gaming with motion sensing).

Sony: Small evolutions every time out of the gate, with a lot of attention paid to what the other guy is doing.

Microsoft: Good, old-fashioned gaming with an emphasis on the online side of things, more like you might expect from a PC.

Why do I like Nintendo?
May 04, 2006

I feel it’s high time that I came right out and told you all why I love Nintendo. There are a lot of people that theorize about such things. They’re not talking about me, but just Nintendo fans in general. You know the description: Cheetos-loving fattie who lives with his parents. Age is never really mentioned because it’s assumed that if you love Nintendo, you’re either a juvenile at heart or in reality. Well, that’s not always true. As I see it, there are two sorts of Nintendo fans:

1) Kids who are creating memories for the first time
2) Older gamers who never got tired of having fun

Tonight I was at Best Buy and I played a few minutes of NBA Live 2006. I know it got mediocre reviews, but I really had a good time. The graphics were cool and I didn't have a hard time with the controls. I was able to figure out how to move the ball down the court pretty quickly, and I would've given serious consideration to buying it if they had any copies in the store. Sadly, they only had it on display, but no copies to sell. So I don't own the game and got season five of Frasier instead. Stupid Best Buy.

I'm getting fat. My waist is now up to 34" and I probably weigh something like 155 or 160. When I was in high school, I weighed more like 145 and I had a 30" waist most of that time. So yeah, I'm getting fat.

I decided to do something about it, so I went down to our apartment complex weight room. There's not a whole lot of equipment there, just some of the usual stuff where you sit in a bench and push your arms together to life weights or whatever. There's also a Nordic skiier machine.

Whoever said dog poop is bad is full of crap
April 13, 2006

I just found this article interesting, so I had to share:

http://articles.news.aol.com/news/article.adp?id=20060412093209990001

And in an effort to make this entry more worthwhile, I shall now discuss random thoughts that have been going through my head. Namely, why can't people wait 3 seconds and live a safer life?
