Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.


Thoughts from the sofa

Metal Gear Acid 2 (PSP) - Finished it yesterday. This was a great follow up to one of the PSP's better launch titles. The SolidEye was fun to use (strictly an at home kind of thing), and I loved the new, increased speed. The arena combat mode was a great bonus too, as here players can fight it out Acid style with a bunch of classic, Metal Gear Solid villians. Liquid Snake vs Solid Snake redux anyone?

And now for a little hate...
December 13, 2005

The sad part is, everyone is right: Microsoft fucked up. We got 6 launch titles, and of them, Ridge Racers and (perhaps) Perfect Dark were the only standout entries. The EA games were complete garbage. Every Party didn't even try for the "next gen" label, and as for the Tetris game... you can make your own assumptions on that.

Of buying what you don't need and impressing women
October 14, 2005

Today I had the chance to splash out with cash I don't have and buy something I didn't need... Densha de GO! for the PSP.

It's odd buying a game like that. The way the sales staff look you up and down, trying to determine if you're some sort of lunatic, train freak, or simply a dumb gaijin not sure of what he's buying. Sheepishly I handed over my cash to the cute Japanese woman who always seems to be looking my way, and secretly I prayed she wasn't mentally crossing me off her list of potential mates. If I had at least bought porn there could have been a chance, no matter how small, that she was interested in my taste.

Instead, I settled for a train simulater.
