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.


REALLY LONG Year in Review 2008 and the beginning to Year in Present 2009
January 07, 2009

If nothing else, I like to be derivative of others, so let me now commence with my own YEAR IN REVIEW with overly verbose commentary.

Flying Hero: Bugyuro no Daibouken (SNES) --- January 23: I'd been wanting to play this amusing little shooter for some time.....and so I did. I spent most of the first half or so of the year in this mode where all I felt like playing were RPGs and I'd gone nearly a whole month without writing anything, so I took an evening or two to play through this game, so I could put out a review.

And another year in reviewing comes to an end.....
December 30, 2008

With Rogue Galaxy.

Looks like 33 reviews spanning 17 letters. Got off to a slow start, but kinda hit something resembling a groove over the last couple of months (15/33 over the last third of the year).

And, for the hell of it, let's look at my game progress!

1. Oblivion: completely immersed, wandering around doing quests here and killing stuff there.

2. Kung Fu Panda: hey, it came with the system. Done about four levels....maybe five. I've really just been playing Oblivion, but this will be one of those January reviews, I'll be guessing.

Merry Christmas!

With this non-holiday related review: Daikatana

Played through the game during one slow day at work and typed up the review during another one. Now, gotta grab a couple of things at the store and head home for another Oblivion session.


I didn't like this Castlevania game so much....

Castlevania: The Adventure

Wasn't as good as most. Well, actually, I think it might be the worst I've ever played.

In brighter news, my broke ass finally got money saved up and will be getting an XBox 360 in the next 4-5 days! That's something to be happy about! That is, assuming nothing negative happens to, say, my car where I'd really wish I had that money, but that's the sort of potential issue I'm trying to block from my mind. Negative thoughts give you cancer.

I like Castlevania games.....even if they're derivative......

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance

Fun game to play.....and that's the end of that.

Right now, there are any number of games that could be next on my itinerary. And since I'm in such a vampire-killing mood, one of them that is near the front of the pack just might be another Castlevania game......a very different Castlevania game than this.

Another letter down!
December 01, 2008

N = NCAA Football 06

Might have to go back through it and clean it up at some point, as I typed the whole thing up over the last hour or two as a one-sitting stream of consciousness purging of thoughts.

17 letters down, 10 to go.......30 days. I might not be sitting so good right now, especially since I can only think of 1-2 more letters I currently am considering games for at the time I don't already have. Nuts.....as in Mr. Nutz.


To celebrate Thanksgiving this year, I give you fruit from the loins of my brain

Mouse Trap

Probably nowhere near the best thing (or top 100 things) I've done, but I just got through a work project this week that had kinda sapped my mental energy for anything else over the last week or so and figured what better way to handle a little Wednesday downtime than to give all of you another review.
