Time for a change... I think this sums me up pretty well:
Things tend to turn out well when you worry, so that's probably good. - EmP
I still <333 wolves, though.
Title: Mm... Deadlines... o.O Posted: December 16, 2007 (11:52 PM)
Wow. I didn't realize how fast the deadline for the Alphas was coming up... I might be more than a little screwed... or not... We'll have to wait and see, I guess.
The main issue is my focus. I'm not sure where I want to take the review. Age of Empires II: The Conquerors, being the expansion of the RTS Age of Empires II: Age of Kings, has a lot of new features that are worth noting, but since I haven't reviewed AoE II, I'll need to cover the basics for the game in the review as well.
And yes, I'm sure some of you would say "Why not just review AoE II?" Well, the thing is, I've been playing the expansion since it came out. I've only played the original AoE II for about a year maybe, if that, and that was ages ago. I don't remember enough about what the game was like before the expansion to write a decent review on it.
However, there is both good news and bad news in this department... I'm going to my dad's Tuesday - the only place I can play PC videogames anymore - so I'll be able to play the game some before actually writing the review...
The bad news... he doesn't have great internet service. Nor does he have Microsoft Word on the computer I'll be playing the game on... and I'm not sure if the other computer has it, either (Note to self: use Wordpad). Either way, I'm not sure how much time I'll have to write the review... and even if I did get it finished, I'll be crunched for editing... I'd have to finish it at least a day or two in advance to get decent revision done... Hm... Decisions decisions...
The other good news is tomorro's my last final. >.> Yay! I hope I don't fail... I certainly can't seem to focus well enough to study.
And well, I guess everyone else here taking finals has them a lot worse off than me, so... Well, hope the rest of you have had good luck with those. I'm sure you need it more than I do.

My last final is a day before the deadline. Now that will be interesting.

Mine were last week. I hope to never see Harry Potter themed security trading problems ever again.

Heh. Wow. Good luck with that, genj.
And that's weird as hell, Felix... >.>
Anyway, the main point of this was to find/rant about a focus for my review... Still not sure where to take it... Maybe I'll work something out, though, I dunno.

The more you think about it, the harder it gets, or at least that's my own personal experience from similar situations past. As a great man once said, "just write the damn thing."

My suggestion is you write 5000 words on Teutonic Knights.
User: wolfqueen001 Title: Posted: December 17, 2007 (06:14 PM)
Heh. You're right, there, Felix... it really does get harder the more I think about it. Maybe I'll just rant things off or something for a bit first... I dunno.
LoL - sportsman. You want a review r a research paper? >.> Of course, I could most certainly talk about the Teutonic knights and how they're the most powerful infantry unit in the game (I think), but 5000 words is a stretch even for me. LoL.
