Taking up all the good oxygen.

Find me complaining on twitter under @EmPitude. I only forget it exists for months at a time, now.

Debuting on Youtube.

DE: Know why you're always wasting time with those written reviews? Because video editing is above you! I used to edit videos and, as such, am qualified to conclude that it is above you.

Me: I'll show you!

Here is a thing I did. It's the first section of a playthrough of a game I recently played. I have more footage but, good god, is it a dull time sink and there's every chance this little experiment will die here.

Still there we go. Another thing I can do. And now choose not to.

Stuff I played in February.
March 07, 2015

Finished off the last little bit of Supreme League of Patriots. Now to just wait and see if anything else comes of that.

Grey Goo -- what a timesink that became. Because it was a review code, I decided the best thing to do in this case would be to stick it on easy mode so I could get a good enough feel for the game and move through it quick enough to form an opinion. I consider myself a decent strat player because otherwise itís hard to justify all those hundreds of hours I've thrown at X-Com over the years. Goo still kicked my arse and then acted largely smug about it. I thought Iíd console myself by taking it to the multiplayer servers and got bitch-slapped there, too.

Stuff I played in January. The Belated Edition
February 11, 2015

January started the same way December ended Ė with a small mountain of shoot-em-ups. It would be fair to suggest that the bug had bitten me, but it was assisted by the fact that people kept giving me games to review that fell within that genre. Hell, even as we speak Jasonís trying to get me to do another one. Curse you, Venter; Iím up eight reviews at time of writing this and youíre at one. Cover your own admittedly good review code!

Silent Hill: The Room -- In Pictures!
June 26, 2012

Horror games -- good horror games -- go out of their way to make yu feel like you're a/ always being watched and b/ there is always something just behind you. It's supposed to make you feel uneasy at all times. Silent Hill: The Room knows that, but does not know how to employ a subtle touch. So:

..... yeah.

Year in Review 2011

Astonishia Story (January 1st) [PSP]
Hits: 962

So, it was Xmas again and my sister was heavily pregnant with her first child. This meant she could not travel very far and, in our immediate family, she lived the furthest away. Being the selfish child, she demanded we all go and spend Xmas with her, condemning me to three nights on the world's most uncomfortable couch. I didn't sleep much, so instead, I played the PSP a lot, which had been left sadly ignored throughout the majority of the previous year. Despite having access to Ys, I spent my time playing Astonishia Story instead, for reasons I still do not fully grasp.
