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.


My latest review for all of you (poetic, ain't it?)

Darwinia+

Fun game. Now back to Project: Snowblind. Shoot, shoot, shoot; kill, kill, kill.

And also my replaying of the first American Fire Emblem on the GBA, this time in Hector Mode instead of Eliwood Mode. Fun little battle of attrition at times. Did Chapter 13x to get Merlinus. Took me three tries, but that was more because my goal was to kill the boss and visit the village, rather than just surviving for the seven turns that is this fight's stipulation. Next up is my assault of Laus and the beating up up Erik, the dickish son of the Marquess of Laus.

Oh yeah, teammates for the contest thing! This is my contest entry. Please offer any potential input you have. I may even have time over the next day to put advice into work!

Batman: Arkham Asylum is complete!

In early January, I went to my best friend's house and we spent an entire day playing this game. I had plans to have it reviewed by the middle of that month. But instead, it stuck on my desktop and stuck there and stuck there with me occasionally opening it and adding a bit more or deleting a bit. Finally, today, I finished it! Now on to my next review, which hopefully will take less than a month to type.

Things That Annoy Me: V1
February 17, 2010

The decreased challenge in games. I was playing Medal of Honor: Frontline tonight. Levels 2-3 and 2-4 aren't notorious for being tough or anything, but they were long and loaded with enemies AND there are no in-level saves or checkpoints, so if you screw up, a good deal of work could be wasted. You have to conserve health items, as one mistake could force you to backtrack to rejuvenate yourself...or risk death by whatever enemy crosses your path next.

Another "pulling teeth" day...
February 12, 2010

So, I figured I'd finish that Batman: Arkham Asylum review that's been sitting on my desktop today. Sadly, all I got done was about 3-4 paragraphs that were utter agony to rip out of my brain. I might finish it before I have to go, but it's looking like a real longshot right now. This is easily going to be the review that gave me the most difficulty to write.

Not because of the quality of the game or anything like that...but because it's of a sort I don't regularly play. And, now, the additional issue of how I binge-played it for one afternoon about a month or so ago is starting to become a factor, as many little things are escaping my memory.

Annoyance...


ANOTHER 2009 year in review!!!
February 03, 2010

Last year, I wrote a bunch of reviews. 30-some, I think. It was fun. You should hunt them down if you haven't read them yet. That is all.

Now it's 2010 and here's my third review of this year, which I did Saturday and am just now linking to my blog because I'm really lazy and stupid.

Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment

In other news:

I'm working on reviews for Batman: Arkham Asylum and Uncharted 2.

Another review!

Wacky Races

Finished this one up after it'd been stuck half-written on my desktop for a good month. With that taken into consideration, I doubt it's one of my best efforts, but at least it's a finished one!

In other news, apparently the Return to Ostragor DLC for Dragon Age: Origins is out now after being delayed a couple times. If so, I'll be downloading it tonight. And if I can beat Uldred in the Circle Tower, I might even play through it!
