Presenting this year's OctJOEber offering: THE STEAM MARKETPLACE MASSACRE
September 11, 2021

"Joe, you haven't written much this year."

Correction. I haven't posted much this year, but I have at least 17 unposted reviews. I had one project I was working on that wasn't specifically intended to be an OctJOEber one, but just happened to see its completion right this month. Since we're this close, I may as well unveil it as such.

Because I have enough horror in my library to do several October projects

1. Mad Father Remake
RPG Maker fare featuring a girl who discovers that her father is a mad scientist, and must find him somewhere in their mansion that's crawling with zombies and killer dolls.

2. A Wolf in Autumn

Settling Back In
July 04, 2021

It's been close to 2.5 months since my work promotion, and I think I'm starting to settle in. A lot of my absence had to do with establishing a routine, as well as dealing with low staffing (especially late spring to early autumn, which we refer to as "prime time" at the hospital). I don't want to get too much into it for professional reasons, and because it's kind of a boring topic for this site, but I think it'll be a while before things fully stabilize. Because of that, I'll likely disappear every so often, but spring back up as much as I can.

AlphaMurderthon update #5
January 02, 2021

I haven't even started this one, and probably won't for a bit. I'm kind of dragging my feet on it, despite Raynal's involvement with this one.

Alan Wake
Since I already had a review from my RoG days ready to for this one, I have an updated rough draft done. It wasn't difficult to rewrite.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
Game complete, rough draft written. Man, what a game...

Castlevania Adventure ReBirth
Same situation as with Alan Wake, except with a fairly revamped review.

Dead Space 2
I started this game at one point and lost interest. I'll probably restart it soon. It's... okay, I guess...

The Evil Within
I've looked at the case (I have a physical copy). That's about it.

Games I Played This Year That Kicked Ass: 2020 Edition
December 31, 2020

It's that time again. Everyone is doing their "year in review" type of topics and videos all over the place, and I don't have an original bone in my body. Obvi, I'm just going to copy off their tests because it sounds like a lot of fun and it gives me a chance to relive the cool things I played this year.

I don't have much of a criteria for listed titles here. Any title must score a 3.5/5 or a 7/10 at the very least, it must be something I played this year, and I had to have made enough progress on it to feel it kicked an ass or something similar. There are some games that technically meet the criteria, but didn't get posted because I'm kind of sick of them (Gateways, for instance).
