Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.


It's been awhile. Shameless indie plug
April 03, 2008

I've been busy with academics and life in general. In the meantime, when I had the chance I would enjoy Oblivion. That said, I have the sad feeling there's a game out there that has a way cooler combat system.

Mount&Blade by Taleworlds is a realistic medieval fantasy adventure game. There are no Ogres, dragons, or magic missiles. Combat is relatively lethal, and you only heal in non-combat situations. If a knight hits you with a couched lance, it's going to hurt. This game is lethal and I am quickly falling in love.

What the crap? Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!
December 15, 2007

Sex sells...or so that's an old mantra. Bleh. By now you've probably heard of the Wii Topless vids, aka a pointless waste of time.

The link is NSFW, so I'm not posting it here but in a subsequent post, for sakes of keeping prying eyes away but seriously, the Wii is little more than a smoke and mirrors campaign. Link Crossbow Training?!?! What the crap?

That said, I'm enjoying my 360 so far...probably going to pick up Assassin's Creed sooner or later, or start fooling around with XNA. Assault Heroes looks promising too, might download it.

Gaming "Curses" and the Wild West.
September 29, 2007

I watched Blazing Saddles last night, and silly though it was, it got me thinking for a moment: "There ain't no decent Western game out there. I ain't talking bout no Wild Arms, where they throw in the kitchen sink o' fantastical creatures, but I'm talking about a doggone romp through the West where you can shoot, lasso, and dynamite your way to glee."

It's been forever, but I have a new review in the works.
September 09, 2007

It's been forever since I've been on here, and I have several games I need to review. Mainly Computer RPGs, the games I'm planning to review include:

-Age of Wonders Shadow Magic: Calling this an RPG may be stretching it...it's a turn-based strategy where you research spells, build cities, etc...sort of like a modern Master of Magic, but with lots of cool spells/abilities, and a decent multiplayer mode.

This never fails to amuse me.
April 15, 2007

I was very disappointed in New Super Mario Bros for its difficulty (the lack of it), and wondered if there was something more challenging. Well, I should've been careful what I wished for.

If anyone can tell me how to link the video in this site, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Videogames, Art, and Philosophy
November 23, 2006

It's amazing how attitudes can change over the period of 10 years. We've gone from a paranoid society that blamed games like Quake for mass shootings, where videogaming enthusiasts were at best social outsiders, to a slightly less paranoid society where games like Halo 2 and The Sims exemplify the mainstream nature of the industry. The new question that arises is whether or not this form of entertainment is also capable of being used for more artistic nature.

Guess I changed my review list a bit.
July 24, 2006

Well, now that I righted the wrongs of Honestgamers not having a review for Guardian Heroes, I suppose I'm going to continue writing wrongs. There are several games I notice are missing reviews and by Jove I am going to review them:

Alpha Centauri
Fighters Megamix
Jagged Alliance 2
Metal Slug X
X-com Apocalypse

There are several others I missed out on but for now I'm putting more priority on these reviews.
