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.
I was once staff at HonestGamers.com.
I can totally sympathize with EmP on his computer issues. A couple of weeks ago, mine died on me (again) and I had to take it in for repair (again). This time we're pretty sure the problem has been resolved - my original CD/DVD drive had died and was causing my whole system to crash. Since I've gotten it fixed it's been running smoothly, so that helps.
I also managed to hurt my back pretty bad two Fridays ago. I'm not sure HOW it happened, but it's basically kept me bed/couch-ridden (except for work) since then. I'm under treatment now, but still not 100%. Of course, this is better than last Monday, when I actually had to take a day off work because I couldn't walk - now I'm at least able for short stints of housework and computer stuff.
I absolutely loved Okami for the PS2 and had considered committing the ultimate gamer sin of getting the Wii version as well. Rumors of shaky controls made me decide (since funds are a little tight right now) to wait until I found it used or on a bargain rack somewhere.
I think most people have heard about the Wii box art issue (which, as a graphic designer myself, I can tell you that IS the kind of shit that is not tolerated within the industry!). Today's news takes the absolute cake though.
Capcom completely removes Okami credits from Wii version.
I finished Mana Khemia Friday. As with Ar tonelico, I whomped the final set of bosses so hard I quite literally looked at the hubby afterwards and said, "That was IT?"
Still, all in all, an enjoyable game. Everything I heard prior to playing the game was pretty much spot-on, but I'm still trying to figure out how best to word it.
I went for the Roxis ending, and then decided to check out other character endings on Youtube. Most of them were very clever and completely Gust: perverted, twisted and hysterically funny.
So, now I'm not sure what my next big console game will be. I guess I'll figure that out sometime tonight.
Been awfully busy lately and it's kept me away from most things, unfortunately. Saturday was my five-year wedding anniversary, and we had a nice dinner, saw a decent movie and he got me Jeanne D'Arc for a gift. I haven't tried it yet though because I'm still trying to finish Mana Khemia. Damn my completionist's soul!
I've also been reading quite a bit. I'm 3/4 of the way through Dune, and I actually did pick up Grand Theft Childhood from my library. It's quite well-written and even though some of what they've written annoys me (not as a gamer, just as a person) it's refreshing to see this topic approached in a logical manner. And let's face it, the Jack Thompson bashing is amusing as well. :)
Work has not been pretty, for various reasons, and it's taking a lot out of me.
The site is running fast. My computer is fixed. I'm on chapter 11 of Mana Khemia.
All is right with the world. :)
My computer is 99% fixed. Tech guy has to move over a few of my programs for me but other than that I will definitely have my computer back by the weekend.
*cries tears of happiness*
FINALLY. I can start being useful, and I have other things I need to catch up on as well. Plus, I saw a screenshot need that I can fill once I have my emulator access back...
