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.


Good news for me, good news for you!

First off, I will have my really late RotW out tomorrow or Friday at the latest.

Second off, if you got to www.romhacking.net , you'll find a completed translation patch for the first SNES Fire Emblem game. It's both a remake of the original Japanese NES one and an apparently never otherwise released sequel. If, like me, you look at the Fire Emblem games as utterly wonderful turn-based S-RPGs, this is a find that's hard to pass up.

Third off, my apologies for not having the RotW out yet or for not being really visible the last few days. First ,as a sports reporter, I'd been swamped with Ohio's high school wrestling meet. I'd also been under the weather, which got worse with multiple 10+ hour days.

Game Progress: OD Style

So, what have I been playing recently between finally finalizing a dissolution and being bogged down at work due to it being basketball playoff time? Read on to find out!

1. Ace Combat IV: Shattered Skies -- friend loaned it to me a ways back and I'm finally playing it now. Never really taken time to do a flight simulating game before, but this one's pretty fun, especially now that I'm getting used to the controls. Only done two missions, but I'm digging it.

Good times!

Yesterday, I found out something potentially great. The translation patch for the Super Famicom version of Emerald Dragon was completed, so many months after reading Zig's kickass review for the TG-CD version, I'll get to play (one version of) the game myself!

And here we go again!

Second letter down in the Alphabet Marathon!

My second one down, only 25 more to go!

T = Tales of Legendia

So, what's next? I'd guess Ace Combat 4, Kingdom Hearts, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance and Dragon Quest V might be front-runners, but you never know. I might just play some really crappy NES game to spew a bit of venom.

Overdrive blatantly pimps himself and his blog.
January 23, 2008

Well, I started my entries in EmP's Alphabet Marathon.

Here's my first entry: F = Flying Hero

Considering I'm planning to do a review for Final Fantasy XII this year, one might wonder why I reviewed a game beginning with "F" for my first entry in this thing. And the only answer I can give you is that I was doped to the gills on medicine and, therefore, that didn't enter my head.

Potential games that will be reviewed for this (and possibly other) contests in the near future:

A: Ace Combat 4, Adventures of Lolo (yes, another two games for one letter thing)
D: Dragon Quest V
F: Final Fantasy XII
T: Tales of Legendia
