Taking up all the good oxygen.
For three years now, I致e had this idea in the back of my deliciously inky-black mind that I wanted to do a weekly mini-rant on things I hate. I hate many things, I知 often told, so the source material should be inexhaustible. However THE PLAN often has this one flaw in it; I want to do it so that I get a new one every week and because something always happens at the start of the year, the process is cracked, and I wait for the next cycle to start.
NO MORE! I知 not writing at the pace nor levels that I have been for at least a decade, and so this excuse will hold no water. I have shot the excuse full of holes -- using manly mind bullets, and now excuse is leaking all over my track shoes.
I WILL have 52 of these up by 2011. Mark my words -- for I am EmP.
I'm in the midst of clearing out my laptop's memory so as to be fresh and ready fro when I switch back to a desktop. In doing so, I've come across a few documents that I don;t remember doing, and may as well throw up here.
Here, then, is a venom filled attack against one of my old reviews:
2009 was a wholly less productive than the year before with significantly less reviews thrown out, but it still only took two extra days to finish the Alpha-marathon challenge. Though I値l most probably run it as long as I知 associated with the site, I知 not as confident of finishing as I have been in previous years. For several reasons, 2010 is probably going to be a year where writing, here and elsewhere, has to take a backseat to more pressing concerns.
That said, I went and made this huge time-consuming habit of writing up a summary of what I壇 written in the year, so I suppose I should make an effort to carry that on. All five of you who値l read have my condolences.
Beneath a Steel Sky:
Sometimes clusmy but often brilliant. A fitting foundation to Revolutions opus, Broken Sword
Despite myself, I can't help but quite enjoy this game. I can feel Venter smirking from here.
Guilty Gear 2: Overture
I can;t decide if I like this game or not. It's an odd mix of Guilty Gear lore mixed with Drakengard and Herzog Zwei. Really bloody weird!
Repulsivly adorable, but very, very samey.
Should be more fun than it actually is.
7 Wonders II
Shouldn't be as fun as it actually is.
I'll tell you, blog topic header. I sat on my roof with a super soaker and the laptop and shot any kids coming up my driveway. Shot them with streams of water mixed with red food dye.
I put it to you, phantom readers, that I had the best Halloween of all of us.
Raven Squad (360)
The bastard love child of a dodgy RTS and a shoddy FPS, rasied under powerlines and force-fed lead-based paint chips.
King of Fighters XII (360)
One mammoth step backwards.
FIFA '10 (360)
Still yet to get old.
Half Life 2 (360)
Still yet to become worth my time.
Zeno Clash (PC)
Unplayable due to crappy laptop. Forces you to install Steam and, therefore, lame.
Mass Effect (360)
Much like WQ, doesn't care how little free time you have and demands your immediate and unceasing attention.
