Dredd is a really good action movie, and you should see it in theatres before it's gone.

That is all.

Title: Tentative Halloween review schedule
Posted: September 11, 2012 (01:07 AM)
Once again, I'm planning on hitting up some horror games this Halloween. I've rounded up some titles that I -might- cover both here and at Realm of Gaming this year. I hope this year will not turn out like the last one where I was ill for most of October and unable to do many reviews, except a whole crap ton in the last week.

For HG, I'm mostly doing retro reviews. For RoG, I'll be doing a mix of retro and anything semi-curren the side could use. Anyway, I hope to hit:

HG:
BloodRayne (GCN)
Clock Tower (PSX)
Dr. Chaos (NES)
Frankenstein: The Monster Returns (NES)
Frankenstein's Monster (Atari 2600)
Ghost Manor (Atari 2600)
Haunted House (Atari 2600)
Soul (Xbox 360)
Sweet Home (NES)
Zombie Nation (NES)
Zombie Shooter 2 (PC)
Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES)

RoG:
Alan Wake (PC)
Cthulhu Saves the World (Xbox 360)
Darkness, The (PS3)
Doom (PC)
Escape from Bug Island (Wii)
Ghouls 'N Ghosts (GEN)
Home (PC)
Hydrophobia (PC)
Larva Mortus (PC)
Shadowgate (NES)
Slender (PC)
Super Castlevania IV (SNES)

I'll probably start writing these reviews tomorrow, and playing/replaying some of the games that need to be played. Because of this, my reviews this month might slow to a trickle. I still plan to hit Mega Man 2 on this site and Planet Crashers on RoG at the very least, though I would like to have Batman Returns done as well.

Scrapped projects:
Werewolf: The Last Warrior (NES)- I really don't feel like playing through this game right now.
Nation Red (PC)- I had no idea it was chiefly a multiplayer game. It's not really what I'm looking for for this project.
Ghost Slayer (Wii)- Another game I don't feel like playing right now. Maybe next year.
DecapAttack (Genesis)- Trying to trim the retro fat for my RoG submissions. I also feel this review would be more at home here at HG, with something newer (possibly indie) for RoG.

I don't trust myself to try a never-ending MMORPG. There are too many great games with a definite ending that I still need to play first.

Title: Expect more retro coverage here from yours truly
Posted: June 27, 2012 (02:42 AM)
I decided that it's a bit silly how I have close to 300 games for the NES, SNES and Genesis that I basically never play, especially since I know that I love me some retro gaming. The main issue was that I didn't want to fiddle around with having three separate retro systems hooked up to my television, which already is surrounded by newer systems.

The solution brought itself to my attention several months back: it's the Hyperkin RetroN 3. The problem was that I had a hard time "pulling the trigger" on a purchase, because technically I already have the hardware to play my games. It's in boxes here in my apartment.

Finally, I decided that if this would help me get more use out of my games, it was worth doing. So I made the purchase, along with some knockoff NES and SNES controllers (which are remarkably good and cheap). Apparently, with patents expired, people can make great hardware to play all these old games.

The system arrived today, and I have already reviewed a game as a result. I look forward to (hopefully) playing through and reviewing plenty more retro titles from my collection in the months ahead, if there's interest. I do have a lot of great games--or potentially great games that I've not yet played, despite owning them--that aren't yet reviewed on the site. I'd like to see HonestGamers get back to posting a nice selection of reviews for those older titles, not just the new stuff... though I plan to keep up with that, too, with help from freelancers and staff.

So anyway, that's an update from me. I hadn't posted in this blog for awhile, and I figured this was as good a reason to post as any!

Title: Silent Hill: The Room -- In Pictures!
Posted: June 26, 2012 (10:52 AM)
Horror games -- good horror games -- go out of their way to make yu feel like you're a/ always being watched and b/ there is always something just behind you. It's supposed to make you feel uneasy at all times. Silent Hill: The Room knows that, but does not know how to employ a subtle touch. So:



..... yeah.

...and I'm done doing Atari 2600 for a while. I have two rough drafts for Tutakham and Atlantis set. I just want to type up a No Escape! review before moving on.

Title: Site Changes
Posted: May 06, 2012 (03:03 AM)
There's a new landing page for the site, which I know is always a surprise but I hope that you'll all find the new layout useful. It should more effectively highlight a variety of new content for people who visit the site for the first time, while the content that more regular users tend to enjoy most is right near the top of the page (or requires less scrolling to reach).

I've posted in more detail on the forums. You can view that topic right here.

In other news, I've taken additional steps to disable iframes on the forum, both in messages and in signatures, as they can serve as a security exploit. I know some people like to use things that include iframes, but there's no telling who might control the content on the other end, so it was an appropriate change. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Good luck, man. Every now and then, something comes along that takes priority over reviewing video games online, and I suppose this just about registers as such.

Title: Baby born!
Posted: April 29, 2012 (11:10 PM)
My son, Grayson, was born today about quarter to 2 PM. 8lbs, 10 oz, healthy, and a very irritable sleeper like his dad [seriously, you lightly nudge this kid and he's like, "I'm trying to SLEEEEEEP WAAAAAAAAAH!"]. As such, you probably won't see much of me over the next few weeks. I hope to continue retro reviews, writing them if I get any downtime. I hope to complete some more Atari 2600 reviews (rewriting my reviews for Shark Attack and Tax Avoiders, and covering some games I haven't reviewed yet) before moving on to something like NES, arcade or Game Boy rewrites.

It's a round number, so I'm noting it as a milestone of sorts. Which gives me an excuse to celebrate heavily today. CHEERS!

Title: Picked up a 3DS...
Posted: April 13, 2012 (04:36 AM)
Didn't get any physical games, though I wanted the new Mario. I did download 4 digital games, though, and...

Pushmo is addictive.

Mutant Mudds is pretty fun.

Gargoyle's Quest is old school goodness.

Dragon Crystal sucks.
