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.
As I still endeavor to trim down my number of current projects
On one hand, you could say I'm 3/4 of the way there, as my plan is to have one game that I currently play in each of these four groups: 360, Android (ie: my Kemco niche), ROM and other system (ie: PS/PS2, 3DS/DS, Wii, Steam). And I have one game in each of the first three groups! On the other hand, in that "other system" group, I still need to narrow it down from 6 games to 1, so, yeah, there's a little bit of work I still have to do...
So, where am I?
XBOX 360: Rayman Legends -- the main goal is to start the Dark Souls games, but I didn't want to deal with something that work-intensive while trying to finish a bunch of other games, so I decided to work with this one. Which was a good decision, as this game is really awesome with a lot of cool features.
Beginning: The Winnowing.
As time goes on, I've gotten the impression that my madcap "have close to a dozen gaming projects going on at once" strategy isn't working. Every game takes time away from the others, so I might have a game I'm completely into, but taking time away from it to make progress on a half-dozen others.
It's only been 5+ months since the last one!
So, I'm currently working on my Silver Nornir review (another Kemco game). When that's done, I'll have Minelvaton Saga (absolutely horrid Famicom action RPG), Avernum: Escape from the Pit (really sweet Steam RPG) and Mass Effect (really good intro to really great series) to write, as my gaming productivity has been greater than my writing productivity. Oh, I have to post my Super Mario All-Stars review. I'll try to get that done after I'm done with this.
So, by system, here's what's on my agenda at the moment:
Since it's been over 3 months since I've given one
Games I'm playing, at least most of them. As I've been having my usual summer struggles with motivation, since when the weather's nice, I don't tend to get into gaming and recreational writing to the degree I do when I'm in the middle of a frozen tundra or torrential downpour. Which is why the vast majority of what I've written about are those short Kemco RPGs that don't take a great deal of effort to get through.
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.

In the news of what I'm doing currently!
2015 ends perfectly!
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.
