Title: Just some random things
Posted: January 10, 2008 (12:46 PM)
I've been reviewing a number of DS games lately, with another coming up quickly, which prompted HonestGamer to say, "People are going to start thinking you like the DS or something!" I'm guessing that was sarcastic, because out of 11 DS games reviewed, I thoroughly enjoyed 1 of them. That's a 10-1 record, and although I won't spoil it, I'm about to go 11-1.

So here is a belated New Year's resolution. I will review more DS games that I actually like, so as not to be such a cranky masochist. Looking at my shelf, I could do Geo Wars and Contra 4. Those are both excellent, for the scant time I've had to play them since Christmas (i.e. five minutes each). I could even take on Portrait of Ruin. Who cares if it's been done? I like my DS and don't want people thinking otherwise.

In other news, skate. got the best of me. Yesterday, I went out and picked up a new board and some shoes to go with it. Combat boots aren't conducive to skating. It was foolishly spur of the moment, but if I hadn't done it in a momemnt of stupidity I would have talked myself out of it. I'm glad I rushed in.

I hadn't ridden anything but my monster old-school (circa 1986) in seven years. I was pretty wobbly at first, but that extended hiatus might have been just what I needed to kick out some old habits that were holding me back. Within two hours, I was effortlessly popping ollies and pulled two successful kickflips. I lost my shove-it skills, but I made up for it with my first nollie ever, and even one-upped that with a nollie 180.

Sometimes stupidity pays off.

Darn, you caught it! I'm going to have to be sneakier in the future. :-D
