Star Ocean 4 and other news
July 25, 2010

I've been playing SO4 on and off for a while now, and it's getting by on nothing but its battle system. The plot isn't as clever or unique as it thinks it is, the characters are almost uniquely annoying and the dungeon layouts are often infuriating.

Iím in one right now when, to progress, I had to light urns on fire in a certain order. That was okay: there was a knight statue in the corner who pointed his halberd at the urn I needed to light, I did this, and secret walls opened. Then it happened again. And again. AND AGAIN.

Achievment unlocked: 400,000 Review Hits.
May 20, 2010

Current number is at 400,574. Which is a pretty nice number. Perh0pas adding a slew of new obscure XBLI games will help the number slowly chug away until Masters catches back up. At least, if he wasn't a complete slacker.

My thoughts on the next XCOM. Most of you might want to skip to the next paragraph

Obviously, Iím not overly optimistic. Iím not sure how 2K are going to be able to turn whatís probably still the defining TBS into whatís probably going to be a new reworking of the Bioshock engine. Iím not going to write the game off so early though; that would be dumb. The guys bought the license because they think as highly of the original games as me, and that makes me think that they donít just want to milk it for what its worth. Anyway, even if it does suck, itís not going to diminish my enjoyment of my favourite game. XCOM Enforcer was god awful, but it did me no harm.

Where's EmP?
March 11, 2010

I'm sorry I've not been around to try and bully the judges through the tourney quicker. This absensce is going to have to continue for a while while I stop doing almost everything else in my life right now to focus on my health. I should have done so years ago.

I'll be back with new things to complain about at an undisclosed date.
