Strong Bad Episode 1
July 01, 2009

Today I decided to pre-order Tales of Monkey Island for PC, so I get whatever bonus stuff I can get. I love Monkey Island, and after playing TellTale's Sam & Max Season 1, I felt confident that it would be good. When I finished my transaction, I was given a code to download one free episode of my choice.

I went with the first episode of the Strong Bad game with the convoluted title. I played it in an afternoon, and while it was short and not particularly brain taxing, it did make me laugh. A lot.

Making your own Teen Girl Squad episode is a hoot. Prank calling the other characters was also funny. I loved Strong Bad's wit and humourous observations about stuff. I loved his Homestar Runner impersonation.

Reviews on the horizon.
June 24, 2009

lol

seriously though

I have about half a Star Ocean: The Last Hope review done. It's a game of two halves, which makes my review also seem like a review of two halves. Maybe it's okay to play it that way, or maybe I need to work on cohesion.

My other is a more gimmicky fiction type review of Oblivion. It might work. It might not. Won't know until I try.

If either of those two end up happening, I will be mighty pleased with myself and will probably look at writing more reviews.

I might also post lists of stuff from the following comps:

Beat Em Up (November 2004)
Contra (September 2004)
Fanfiction comp (June 2006)
SNK (October 2004)
The Great War (3 rounds in October 2006)

Anything else I may have judged has been lost to time and the Purge Monster. But I think that's it. I'm a pretty damn prolific judge.

The Jerec Archives Presents - Team Tournament 2005/2007
June 23, 2009

Most of the review judging I've ever done has been saved. There is information to be had, here. So I'm not going to post it. Well, not in its entirety. Just posting team entrants and stuff, since there's an interest for it.

2005 Team Tournament

Here are the teams, not sure on who is captain or whatever. Btw the numbers aren't overall rankings. I don't have that info. Just me keeping count.

1) Emp - Dark Fact - Golden Vortex
2) Leroux - Midwinter - Sportsman
3) Overdrive - Janus - Jihad
4) Boo - Ukyo - GUTS
5) Masters - True - Genjuro Kibagami
6) Venter - King Broccoli - Johnny Cairo
7) Bbobb - Auto Rock - FFM
8) Fix - Zigfried - Gruel

2007 Team Tournament

I didn't judge or compete in 2006. I had way too much real life shit to deal with.

Anyway, 2007 teams

I feel like I'm getting stupider.
June 13, 2009

I can remember being quite smart at one point. Sharp, even. I had a good general knowledge, knew what was going on in the world, and was pretty quick with puzzles and problems.

Now? I feel dull-witted and apathetic. I don't pay much attention to current events, politics, or any of it. People 5 years younger than me could probably beat me in arguments about things I used to know quite well.

This is probably due to my mind becoming lazy because I'm no longer studying. 2006-2008 all I was studying was my Library course, so I still know lots about libraries. Just not much about anything else.
