Oh this is gonna be tough to remember them all, but...
'Splosion Man - Interesting one button game. I've played a few levels so far, and I find it really fun. But it's one of those games I can only play in small amounts, lest I get overwhelmed by awesome.
Banjo Kazooie (XBLA) - This version is better than the N64 version. I love that notes collected are saved. I've gotten further this time than I ever have before. I will finish this one some time.
Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts - I haven't played much, yet. I find the game a bit overwhelming. There's so much going on, and it is like a platformer where every quest is a free-form race. I haven't really gotten far enough in yet to do anything major to my vehicle. Perhaps I'll go back to this one soon.
5 short of my goal of one review a month. None of these 7 reviews were anything special. A couple of them got runner up in RotW, but mostly they were lazy, uninspired efforts... written so quickly that my mental block didn't even have time to shut it down.
I wonder if people expect too much of me as a reviewer. I can remember a lot of praise about being great, but I don't think I ever really was. I had written occasionally great reviews... but I was always eclipsed by better reviewers who wrote much more, and were always consistently better.
New phone, which I really, really needed. Nokia E63.
My Grandmother paid for the compulsory insurance for my car (about $345) which was really nice.
I also got about $60 in cash.
I'm 25 now, and this Christmas has been about needs rather than wants. But that's fine with me. I also got my new phone about a month back.
I just sorta opened the submission box and started typing. Seems I had a fair bit to say about LOST: Via Domus. I actually wanted to score it a bit higher, but it's not a game I could recommend to people.
So it begins. I picked the first choice for character, a busty chick in red. That'll do for me. Combat system is different to what I was expecting for this type of game, and it might take some getting used to, but I'm sure I will in time.
I like the simplified version of the stats. Story-wise, nothing special has happened yet. The Master was going to tell me stuff but we were interrupted by bandits. I fought them off, and that's as far as I went today. I talked to Dawn Star a bit.
I also suspect this annoying fellow, I forget his name "The Lesser" is going to be a major pain in my ass. It would actually be a brilliant subversion if he wasn't!
So far the game looks promising.
Picked up Jade Empire (limited edition!) from EB Games. I think I got a pretty good deal. The usual price is $14.87, but it's reduced to $13 for the pre-owned sale, and with my Edge card, I got a 10% discount bringing the price down to $11.60.
And I got a bonus disc with demos of the original Forza, Conker Reloaded and something else. I'll be posting my thoughts on this game as I play it to assist with the review writing.
Also, some of the choices the game has presented me with have actually made me stop and think which is the best way to go. Very clever game.
Morrigan is hot... but Leliana is just adorable.
