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.
If there's one genre of game I'd call my "home", it's that of J-RPG. For me, there's not much better than their hybrid of cheesy plots, non-stop encounters, quirky characters and oftentimes "interesting" ways to try to be somehow different than the gazillion other J-RPGs out there.
So, when I bought my 360 in December, I bought Oblivion. Great game. I really love it. However, (a) it's not a J-RPG and (b) my attention span isn't super-long, so after hitting the 90-hour mark, I realized I needed a break from its immersiveness.
Although I'm really sad now that I played this game for an extended period of time.....
In other news, I'm playing CV: Aria of Sorrow again, as well as Oblivion. Thinking about grabbing a couple of more traditional 360 RPGs. Oblivion's great and all, but kinda exhausting as there are so many flippin' things to do that I feel I'm almost wasting my time playing it if I can't dedicate an entire afternoon/evening to it because I won't get much accomplished.
Low G Man has been reviewed.
One of those I owned when I was younger. Played it again recently and had a good time with it. Always good to churn out 8-bit reviews while going through Oblivion at the pace of a deceased turtle.
....this review for Emerald Dragon
Not Zig's TG-CD version, but the SFC version I played. Not the awesome 10/10 experience Zig gushed about in a review everyone gushed about, but a pretty fun (if too easy) RPG. One of those that fit into that ugly "is it a 7 or is it an 8" area. If decimals were allowed, I'd say 7.5, but went down to 7 for various reasons. Mainly to put it in a level with other RPGs where I loved the story/characters, but found the gameplay lacking such as Tales of Legendia and Suikoden III.

.......I have four letters reviewed with at least one more to come this month. Nothing like having a slow day where I was desperately looking for something to pass the time. If not for that, I'd never have played this game. Now I have.

Now I just have to get 24 (counting numbers)! I was happier until I realized EmP subbed something yesterday to keep a step ahead of me. That saddened me. Or enraged me to a homicidal fury, to be more precise.
On the docket:
1. Continue playing Oblivion. I'm at 60 hours and still barely have scratched the surface. Damn....
2. Keep working through the XBA Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Yes, even though I own it on the PSX, I still bought it on the 360. I really don't know why......but I still love the game.....
3. Start playing Lego Indiana Jones. It looks really fun, but I just haven't got to it yet.
Only eight days into the year and I've already put down two letters! Not a bad start, if I do say so myself.
My only regret right now is that I have to work for a while tonight and then likely will head to a friend's house to watch the rest of the Florida-Oklahoma national championship game, so I won't get my Meteos fix for today. Curses! I'm already feeling the shakes from withdrawal.....
