I write about video games and horror-related items. Also, I wear a hat.

My quest in Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light nearly met with tragedy...
Well, okay, I'm being hyperbolic. It was more like a rage-quit that would have lasted two days at most. You see, up until recently, I've been stomping most of the competition. I hit a few doable snags, but mostly toppled bosses without much issue. Even Rolan--and god, was that an epic battle--fell without too many complications.
I expected my winning streak to continue once the world plunged into darkness. I figured that with the prospect of unbridled exploration I would have the opportunity to take advantage of the choicest loot and bolster my team into an almost unfair killing squad.
...then I met Asmodeus.
Apparently I've been doing it wrong all these years.
As True had said with his most recent blog post, this is too funny to not share.
4 Heroes, Tiki Towers, and PAD
It's been a while since I've had time to report on my progress, so here it is:
Tiki Towers - Wii
I got about halfway through the campaign and gave up.
Consider this my replacement for an actual review
I recently forced myself through Brutal Legend. No, I didn't beat the game. I made it to the penultimate stage, grew tired of the tacked on RTS segments, and decided to call it a day. I've also decided that I'm not writing a proper review of the title for one reason: I'm tired of penning crits of middling games. Instead, I've opted to upchuck my random thoughts on the title here, in no particular order except that the positive comments come first. Then I shall slap on a non-numerical summary rating thingie and call it good.
I have once again found myself in that awkward position where I have a bunch of reviews to write and a few games to play. I've been dying to play some stuff, but for some reason I've had an unhealthy obsession with Puzzle & Dragons. I aim to quell that.
Anyway, when this next wave is done, I should have new reviews for:
WWF Raw (32X)
Wasteland Angel (PC)
Dolphin (Atari 2600)
Plus I've started a new game by request that I intend to review:
Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space (PC)
Time for some mini-reviews.
Posted with a heavy heart.
I'm going to break my habit and make this one as brief as possible:
Assassin's Creed II (Xbox 360)- About to wrap up contracts and then finish the memory I'm currently on. An autosave glitch killed my progress. I decided to begin playing Brutal Legend instead.
Brutal Legend (Xbox 360)- I chopped up tons of druids, ran a handful of them over, and then finished off the first boss. So far the game has potential, but it has yet to really wow me. Despite my love for heavy metal, I'm not digging the vibe yet. I will say, though, that cutting up foes while Black Sabbath's Symptom of the Universe blared in the background was pretty sweet.
