About Me:

My name's Rob. I'm insane, but not in a criminal way. At least, not yet. Take the character of Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, make him older and chubbier...and you pretty much know all you need to know about me.


A question for Mass Effect players
April 01, 2016

Right now on my 360, I'm going through Diablo 3. After I finish the Reaper of Souls chapter and mess around with Adventure Mode until I've gotten bored with it, I'm thinking about moving on to at least starting the Mass Effect Trilogy. Perhaps doing all three back-to-back-to-back, perhaps not.

Anyway, I have the collection with all three packaged in one container and from what I gather, this does not include DLC.

Good times as a new year gets kind of close to beginning.
December 31, 2015

First, I did the Alpha Marathon successfully! First time to get all 27. Hell, I'm not sure I've gotten more than approximately 20 or so in the past.

That was good for my site productivity this year, as I finished with 36 reviews. After a couple years in the 20s, that was a nice change of pace. Late summer had a lull (only 1 in August), but I rallied late in the year, putting out six this month.

Since there's been talk about Konami and how much of a screw-up they've become.

An article I read stating they're all-but-completely going Mobile only. Maybe I'll get real lucky and they'll go all-in on providing Kemco with a challenger on regularly churning out half-hearted mobile RPGs every month! I really, really hope not because one company doing this might break my sanity completely, but they could!

Since it's been a while since I've given a gaming update...
August 28, 2015

While I do play a bit of Etrian Odyssey Untold: Millennium Girl, Eschalon Book One and Shin Megami Tensai IV from time to time, until I've finished the year and my likely-to-be-just-a couple-letters-shy run at the Alpha Marathon, I don't really make quick progress. I'm at Floor 10 in EO:U, killing goblins and wasp-things in Eschalon and working to advance things a bit in SMT IV by killing a demon located near the town I'm at (which I can't remember the name of off the top of my head -- I previously had killed Dullahan in another area near it, though.

As for the stuff I'm working on more regularly:

Masochism is my name
August 12, 2015

A couple weeks ago, I decided to join modern times and get a smartphone. I've had fun with it and use it for a bit of gaming, mainly playing Final Fantasy Record Keeper for the nostalgias here and there.

I also got a tablet with it due to some giveaway/deal the store was running and had to figure out what to do with that. Kindle is cool and all, but I recently bought a massive series of books, so I'm reading those. So, I searched Google Play for games and discovered that Kemco has dedicated the last few years of its existence to released a never-ending horde of JRPGs upon the market. Like, they're up to 45 or so, with roughly 35 getting released just in 2013 and 14.

Time to talk about games and stuff again
July 02, 2015

Since it's halfway through the year and I figure I better start taking the Alpha Marathon a bit more seriously if I want to complete it, a few of my games are basically getting played about once or twice a month so I don't lose track of fundamentals or my progress. Those are Eschalon Book 1, Etrian Odyssey Untold: Millennium Girl and Shin Megami Tensei IV.
