Bet you thought I was gone, didn't you?
So, after reading your post and thinking about how popular some of these other threads tend to be I wanted to just throw an idea out there.
The 600th review is a milestone and should be a game that you're always going to remember. The 599th, though, is fair game.
In an effort to show our support and inspire the guy who gives us all a place to congregate and write what we enjoy, basically gives us a system in order to express our passion to the masses, I say we suggest and vote on the game we'd all like to see him review right before he breaks that feat.
I, for one, would love to see you do Arkham City. May be around the time-frame and just...sounds like it is going to be an incredible game. One I think you would do really, really well with.
That's my vote.
Cause I did, and frankly it's making me a bit nervous. Basically it's saying that they did get hacked, my personal information was at risk and also gave me some information on how to deal with it.
Now, I'm not sure if this was a pre-rendered letter they sent out to everyone because they're still not sure who was directly affected--because let's face it, it's Sony and as of now my faith in them is entirely shatter. Or if they know who was attacked and I was one of them.
If that's the case, I'm suing the fuck out of someone. Or maybe I'm just being paranoid.
If you did get a letter, let me know. Thanks.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
This is the winter of our discontent.
Call me Ishmael.
The opening line can make or break a book. And though I've yet to muster up the courage to commit to Chaos I have thought long and hard about the opening line.
Just wanted to get some opinions on it. A random, tired blog really. Trying to inspire some of my friends to start their fiction...Jason, Joe, Andrew I'm looking in your direction...and maybe work up some of my own. Anyway, here you go:
There is no greater test of one's character than that which is implemented by morality.
New Bloodrayne. Hell yeah...wait...I hope they don't screw it up simply because fans have been demanding it and they're trying to shut them up. Oh, never mind. It's Majesco, not Square/Camelot.
Sorry for the recent surge of Power Metal (I'm really not). I've been on kind of a Chaos kick since I haven't written anything novel related in about a year.
What are Jason and Andrew doing? Maybe that would help inspire me if they were working diligently.
I traded in 7 games to afford it, and waited 45 minutes in the rain to get it at midnight. So far, it's totally worth it. A lot of things--like the freedom allowed in combos and the brutality--I've already mentioned in my preview but there are so many other aspects I didn't get a chance to see that I'm loving now, like the tower, story mode and mini-games.
I'm starting to believe they've done this one right, and I don't imagine they'll screw it up. It's been a while since I wrote a fighting review but I'm thinking this one may end up being one of my best.
The rest of my opinion will be saved for that, for now though a list:
Favorites so far - Scorpion, Kitana, Sub-Zero, Sonya, Nightwolf and Ermac.
3rd Birthday - Square...just when I think you can't do anything worse than FFX you put this junk out. Do you even know how to make a sequel anymore? I'm keeping my background up, mainly because Aya is still wicked hot (or is it Eve? I really don't know after that bizarre, useless, lame story you made me sit through) and I'm too lazy but know that I am not happy about it at all.
Let me know when you start making good games again and I maybe, just might possibly consider buying one....if it's cheap and it gets rave reviews by everyone I know, and it has a hot chick in it, and you hand over the company to someone who's not so money-grubbing, intellectual-property motivated, fan-disregarding. And that's just maybe.
