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.


Postal?

Did anyone see this film. I consistently hear it lauded as a "good" Uwe Boll film, which frankly baffles me. Anyone that can comment...?

3:00am and all is well (Disidia preview in here somewhere)
July 25, 2009

I'm waiting for the glue to dry on my PSP, which had an unfortunate fall a few weeks ago which resulted in the (thankfully) cosmetic stripping bending in one spot. The system still works fine, but it was bugging me, so I'm attempting a fix.

In other news, it's been a day of gaming for me. Three games, in particular.

Jeanne d'Arc will fulfill my "J" requirement for this year's Alphaphon. It also happens to be one of the most entertaining games I've ever played, doing the impossible and being a fast paced (!) tactical war game.

God of War II will shortly be my "G" for the year, and as such, I'll keep comments here to a minimum except to say that, though it is one of the best action games I've ever played, it suffers massively from "middle child syndrome."

Team Tournament Preview: Week 5!
July 24, 2009

Recap!

This week saw the sudden departure of Drella, our previous Swami of the previews. We wish him well in his troubles and wish for his quick return. Not one to let a grand tradition die, I've stepped up to the plate to take over his divination duties. It might not follow the same format (we all see the future in our own way) but it aspires to the same level of professionalism and random guessing.

Putting this together took me many hours, but it was a huge help to me in my own writing, getting to see a wide variety of reviews and forcing me to figure out why some of them work and why some don't. It's pushed me past my block on my coming review of Mytran Wars, which I should now have posted before the end of the weekend (though I think it's got embargo).

Lewis and ROTW?
July 22, 2009

Did you want one of us (OD, myself, Janus) to take on your ROTW for this last month, Lewis? I couldn't help but notice you never got around to it...

... understandably, of course! After all, you're one of the star judges of the TT! Just say the word, and I'll take the ROTW and do a double feature this week!

Jeanne D'Arc
July 22, 2009

Oh my god this is such a sweet game. Great cutscenes, fun combat, good graphical style... I can't praise it enough.

It's a lot like Final Fantasy Tactics, though with a more cohesive story and a simpler leveling system. Skills are done through equipment, so you can really customize your characters for different roles.
