On-going Backlog Project: Death to RPGs!
January 22, 2015

It's time to eliminate a few RPG series from my backlog, in particular: Risen, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Geneforge Saga, and Gothic. Of course, with review assignments and this year's October project, it probably won't happen soon enough. Thankfully, I have gotten a head start on this. I hope to also do weekly blog entries regarding my sessions with these games.

Note that any further entries to these series will not be included in this project.

Remaining titles

Dragon Age
Dragon Age: Origins
Dragon Age 2
Dragon Age: Inquisition

Mass Effect
Mass Effect (I still plan to replay this one so I can re-review it here and delete my junky GameFAQs review of it)
Mass Effect 2
Mass Effect 3

Geneforge Saga

October 2015: Very Early Tentative Review List
January 21, 2015

Because I'm a horror nut who happens to love video games, I tend to review horror games and movies every October. Last year, I made a wise decision to cut back on the number of titles I review to one per day instead of two per day per site (totally sixty-two reviews, which I did in 2013).

Before I continue, I'd like to emphasize that a game doesn't need to be scary to qualify. A light-hearted title with either a horror theme or horror elements, such as Dead Hungry Diner, qualifies.

So, this year's titles, assuming I have the time to play and review them all, are:

-Monster in my Pocket (NES)
-Legacy of Kain series
 -Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain (PS)
 -Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver (PS)

Gaming Progress
January 17, 2015

I wish I had more to report, but I spent most of the week writing upcoming reviews or wanting to punch myself repeatedly in the head for agreeing to play Natural Doctrine.

Speaking of which...

Natural Doctrine- I got far enough into the game to know what I want to say. The review is live now at Realm of Gaming. Now, let's put this crap title behind us...

Bermuda Triangle- Not that you can make much "progress" on an Atari 2600 game, but I figured I'd muse about it. I've played it fairly extensively over the last week and have written a rough draft for it. Despite being a shmup on a way old system, it's actually a lot of fun. The game borrows a bit from Defender, in that you have to recover objects and deliver them to a safe area.

Six Hilariously Bad Practical Effects Monster Movies
January 14, 2015

There are few things that warm my heart as much as an old school, practical effects monster movie. Sure, the suits look silly, but my goodness are they adorable! If at any point you need an accidental comedy to brighten your evening, look no further than these:

[NOTE: I realize the images are not equally sized. It's not easy finding good images for obscure movies.]

1. Gamera vs. Guiron (1969; aka Attack of the Monsters)

Natural Doctrine sucks
January 10, 2015

I'm beginning to dislike NIS.

No, I don't harbor the "I'm swearing off future Disgaea games" kind of contempt for them. It's more like, "I'm done expecting greatness from you anymore." Natural Doctrine is yet another nail in their coffin for me.
