About Me:

Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.


So I saw Avatar
January 14, 2010

My initial reaction was that I liked it "quite a bit." I was hesitant to say that I liked it "a lot," but felt that it deserved more than a simple "I liked it." Hope that's not too confusing. The more I think about it though, the more I like it.

I looked the movie up on wikipedia and saw something strange:

"Many have reported experiencing psychological depression and suicidal thoughts upon the realization that the lush and verdant world presented in the movie does not exist."

At first I thought this was ridiculous, and section to which this sentence belonged (titled "health effects") has been removed entirely between the time I checked the article last night and the time of the writing of this blog entry, less than 24 hours later.

A Recently Unearthed Memory
January 12, 2010

When I was young, my parents took me to see Santa Claus at a local mall. I must have been pretty young, because it was before I decided that I was an atheist, and before video games became my primary mode of play. Another reason I must have been pretty young was that I spent several days prior to seeing Santa Claus looking through toy catalogues, writing up very long lists of everything I wanted. Since I was not yet into video games as much as I would be a few years later, the list was predominated by different lego sets. There are at least two different years in which I did this, and each list literally contained several dozen items. I didn't expect Santa to get me everything on the list; I just wanted to give him a wide range of choices. Considering how religiously I did this, I must hav

Anyone reviewing any upcoming releases?
January 06, 2010

Just curious to see what you guys think of certain upcoming games. At this point I think I'm mainly interested in hearing what anyone here would have to say about Darksiders, Bayonetta or Dante's Inferno.

My Alpha entry

Baten Kaitos

After writing this review, I look at it and think, "man, this is a fantastic first draft, I wish I had started much earlier." It was a rush job, I wrote about 90% of it on the day of the deadline, though it seems I'm not alone in this regard. I'm a little disappointed with the turnout for this contest, but I know very well that shit happens. I just barely showed up myself.


2010 Contribution Goals -- stolen from Felix
December 29, 2009

2009 was the first year since 2005 that I submitted a review to HonestGamers. In the interim I submitted some screenshots, some cover art, and even a guide or two.

I submitted only three reviews in 2009, and for 2010 I plan to uh, at least triple that. In absolute terms this is a pretty modest goal, but considering my habits I think it's a reasonable bar to set without being too ambitious. It will start with my Alpha review in about a week, but I think most of my writing will probably occur after I graduate in May. It's too difficult to write during the school year, but hopefully post-graduation life will give me a little more time to write.
