Hello.


If you hate video game reviews so much, why read them?
June 02, 2010

Something that I've noticed during the past 8 or so months on the Internet is this growing hatred for video game reviews. It's always been there, yeah, but I've noticed an unusual increase recently. On different sites, different message boards, and even chat rooms, whenever someone brings up a review for a game, the response is almost the same: "reviews are useless, play the game yourself and decide". It's really getting on my nerves at this point because of how stupid that statement is. People rely on reviews so that they won't waste time and money on something they might not enjoy. It really makes me think that these are either kids that have their parents buy them games or extremely rich people.

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation

If this was only a single-player game that had a bit more missions and fine-tuning, I would have given it an 8. But it wasn't.

Console Series Overview Time!

From Best to "Worst":

-Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War
They went to town on this game, delivering varied play mechanics and missions, a well-executed plot, and great soundtrack. It set the standard for following AC titles to live up to or overcome. It has yet to happen.

-Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies

Pre-Latest Review Blog Entry #3

I think I just got my first ever moderation on GameFAQs.
May 24, 2010

Well, maybe I got moderated once before, but if I did, it probably happened five or so years ago. Long enough to forget.

Anyway, this happened on the Metal Slug XX board where people were exposing a glitch that made the full game free. The first time this happened, I marked it and the topic got the deleted. The second time was when someone mentioned the glitch, and when posters asked to share it, I threatened to mark it if it was revealed. I got marked for trolling.

Edit: I just realized that I like to moan a lot in my blog entries...


My first impressions of Metal Slug XX
May 20, 2010

Yes, I downloaded the 1200 MS Point Metal Slug XX (updated version of Metal Slug 7) off Xbox Live Arcade today...

Impressions!

-I decided to play on Hard on my first playthrough. Horrible mistake... At least there were infinity continues.

-The smooth filter makes the backgrounds look like crap.

-Platform jumping?! Edit: I meant pit jumping.

-Pit jumping is tough to do, because you don't know when to jump.

-Holey crap, the second ceiling flytrap section in mission 4 is cheap as hell.

-The hit detection is... suspicious. I keep getting killed when bullets hit the ground in front of me. I even got killed by a bullet in mid-crouch. In mid-crouch! That animation appears for a millisecond.

-I can't believe the sleds can kill you in mission 5...

I Hate My Brother Blog Entry # 95,347 + Funny Video Reviews
May 15, 2010

I'm making this a double feature, because I know everyone is dying to listen to me bitch about my brother again.

-Funny Video Reviews: Red Letter Media

Okay, last night, I felt like searching for Star Trek: TNG crap on YouTube. After some lame search results, I decided to do a search for Star Trek: Insurrection, because that was one of the ST movies I've never seen much of. One of the first results ended up being a review:
