About Me:

Hello.


Finally broke down and bought a new 360 hard drive
May 18, 2011

250GB, to be specific. I've been using the same hard drive that I got with my 360 back in 2006, and it's finally running out of space. For five years, it's never failed me, surviving three RRoDs, still retaining a ton of saved stuff that was there years ago, so it sucked that I had to delete some games and save files to make room for new downloads. There's some recent Arcade titles I've wanted to try out, but with only 500MB-ish memory left, just couldn't. Yeah, I know I can just redownload Arcade games after deleting them, but I'm a lazy bastard that wants to keep all my downloads. I guess it is good that I'm getting one now while they're still new, instead of years later when I have to search for old, possibly defected ones or new ones that go for a fortune on ebay.

I should have stopped after 24 seconds...
May 09, 2011

It's 4:30 in the morning, I'm kinda tired, and hungry, and what'd I do instead of eating? I stumble onto a FFVII video review on YouTube.



With such a bold statement in a video lasting only 4 minutes, I should have known this would be a mess...

Dune: The Battle for Arrakis

Playing this recently has given me the craving to try out the semi-remake on the PS1, Dune 2000. Still thinking on whether to give it a go, though.


Re-Review Original - Dune: The Battle for Arrakis
May 05, 2011

Originally submitted to GameFAQs in 2004. For some odd reason, the Genesis version on HG has the PC title (edit: which has been changed since I made this blog post).

May 01, 2011

Coulda fooled me, I saw zero advertising for the game. Did anyone here actually get the game? How was it?

Portal 2

Almost didn't write a review for this, but I figured I might as well do one while the game is still fresh in my mind. When I finally did start, it ended up being a pretty irritating review to write. Not because it was hard to write, it was actually pretty easy, but because I really didn't want to give anything away, since the entire thing is one big clue. In the end, I think it works more for people who played the original and know what I'm talking about, but I hope it wasn't confusing for readers that have never played a Portal game before.


Splosion Man First Impressions
April 23, 2011

Got my Triple Pack copy for the 360 on Thursday, but it wasn't until now that I decided to try one of the three games on the disc: Splosion Man. I've played levels 1-1 through 1-10, and I dig it. It's a very simple game, but it stacks on the platforming situations pretty quick, making you work with your "three explosions per jump" limit. Though, I think they're going overboard with the wall-jumping, making me want to call it Wall Jumping: The Game, instead. It is early, however, and I'm sure there's more to offer.

I also thought I'd get tired of the main character's quirkiness, but his wacky animations are hilariously charming.
