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.
My latest review is for Flower:
Fantasia references for teh win
I've not much to add to this one. This is one review I'm really satisfied with. I captured everything I wanted to say and I did so with not even 800 words.
I have this nagging feeling that I could've used the extra space to go into more details on the environments, but I'll let feedback tell me.
I WILL get feedback, won't I?
I encounter this fact every time I walk into a game store. I pull out my wallet, decide I can't make rent, go to put back whatever game I'm holding and say "nooooookay' and end up buying it.
Actually, that's what I wish I did. Usually I do actually end up putting it back and going home empty-handed to stare into a corner and feel bad.
Which is silly, because I've got plenty of games to keep me occupied. I'm still playing Alundra and Persona 4, and I'm in love with The Lion Wars. I also am trying FFXII for the second time and I have Eternal Poison waiting for me.
Managed to pick up a copy for 25.00 or 30.00 dollars... can't recall now. Anyway, I checked it out a very little bit and I like what I see, mostly. I'm waiting till I beat Tactics to really jump in, though.
Alright, the big bash has arrived. Come one, come all:
Almost too lazy to add in code
Approximately one and a half years after purchasing it, I finally finished Odin's Sphere. That was an epic experience for me, and finally closes the cover on an entire chapter of my life.
Now it is my solemn duty to write a review of the game.
As for the ending, it wasn't entirely unexpected or really all that surprising... but the game as a whole was such a wonderful experience.
... except for the PS3 declaring my saves to be corrupted every other time I tried to save. They aren't corrupted, I swear! It wasn't really a problem until Armagedeon, where you can only save in between battles.
... is Flower. Just downloaded it off PSN tonight and my god, it is beautiful and soothing beyond belief. I don't know what genre it is, exactly. Kind've like a three dimensional Snake where you can't die, set to new age ambience.
Review will be coming.
Already I like it. It's old school, but in all the right ways.
Except... did anyone else who played the game notice the graphics are somewhat... not crisp? Do you know what I mean? It all seems a little blurry. Not badly, just... the colors blur a bit and when you walk around, sometimes subtle lines cross the screen.
