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.

I want to review another game, but I'm pretty much at a loss as to which one. If anyone would like to see a particular game reviewed in my Game's list, I'm open to suggestions.

X-Play
September 22, 2006

Holy shit! Is this not the most pretentious show on TV now? Why are they trying so hard? The bitter intellectual attitude is way too affected.

Not to mention the sarcasm is so thick, I can't even tell whether or not they like what they're reviewing. Does anyone remember that Lullapalooza episode of the Simpsons? The one where they pan to an audience member and he says: "Well, I guess that's cool" in a really sarcastic way, and the guy next to him asks: "Are you being sarcastic?", and he says "I don't even know anymore." That's how bad (e)X(tended)-Play has gotten.

Worth a look (from a while back):

"However, it's not their job to act as shaman for a culture easing itself into even greater integration with technology. It's their job to associate a single integer with the most subjective type of experience ever devised by our species. It hardly seems possible. So when they fail at it, when they fail to represent the depth of these experiences, what are we saying exactly? That they are human beings, possessed of finite minds, saddled with the task of cramming the undefinable into the discrete universe? That hardly seems like something you can hold against a person.
