Taking up all the good oxygen.
Unless youíre Venter (who has to cheat by having four billion reviews posted) or Zig (who needs to cheat by peddling smut and corrupting the minds of the innocent) I am vastly more popular than you on the internets. FACT.
Last night I overtook Midwinter in the hit tables. Mid was too busy wearing shorts to work to comment.
The blog post is now open to tributes and homage.
Thems a lot of hits. The public love me.
Last night wasnít a lot of fun.
I set off for football with that weekís designated driver who I usually employ as heís going that way, anyway and I can hardly give lifts to several people with a motorbike, and all was well. It was cold -- it was bloody cold, well into the minuses -- but such was life When we arrived for the game, it was still just that, cold. Sure, the pitch was frozen and we may as well have been playing on a concrete parking-lot, but weíve had worse.
The snow came like a thief.
Crazy Pig (DS) 7th January:
Although I probably could have fogged this away on someone else, there was no way I was going to give up a game called 'Crazy Pig'. Alas, my dreams of an old-school Contra-style shooter featuring an insane porker were not to be. Crazy Pig is a very limited collection of mini-games and a side-order of dress-the-swine. Not much you can write about with such a game, but I gave it a go!
Everquest II: Rise of Kunark (PC) 12th January
Empleh16: I could take it.
DarkEtr: Surely you jest.
Empleh16: I'm an Alphamathon winner; I never jest.
DarkEtr: Bah, it's a fixed competition.
Empleh16: I'm also a Alphaolympics winner.
DarkEtr: You are?
Empleh16: So, really, I'm king of the Alphabet.
DarkEtr: No you are not.
Empleh16: Yes I am.
DarkEtr: At least not the lastest one, the one in which I was cheated of a high place.
Empleh16: And you will address me as sire.
Empleh16: I won either last year or the year before that.
Empleh16: I am the LORD OF THE LETTERS.
Iím still not sure whether to be deeply proud or ashamed of this.
Running well behind schedule with a lot of reviews, so this figure is only going to climb with depressing speed. Next in line (deep breath) Disgaea DS, Crazy Mini Golf, Vampyre Story, Mini Big Bang (preview) Everquest II Complete, EUIII Complete and a few DS games that Iíve not even had time to open from their forever-mocking envelopes yet.
I've also got half-drafts of three different reviews that I need to finish up, but never have time because of all the ones I have to do for this site first. Grrr!
Someone shoot me now. Most of you are American; itís not like you canít spare the firearms.
Nighthmare Circus is the one hundred and fiftieth review I have written for this site. Youíve not done too badly out of me, you lot.
Iím not sure if itís fitting or disappointing that this landmark figure was reached through what is probably the worst game I will ever play. The next step, then is to chase and Catch Midwinter in the hit tables.
