About Me:

My name's Rob. I'm insane, but not in a criminal way. At least, not yet. Take the character of Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, make him older and chubbier...and you pretty much know all you need to know about me.


Of dreams...
June 28, 2010

Last night, I had the weirdest sequence of dreams I've ever experienced. I'd been getting wasted at a local race track all weekend, which I think set things up, as from what I've read, at least step one gets made more possible by things like eating before bed and having massive intoxication affect sleep.

Tecmo Secret of the Stars

A little bit of nastiness disposed of. Now back to stuff I'm having fun playing, as I've gotten my bash review jollies out of my system for at least a few days.


One more acquisition!
June 13, 2010

Since GameStop seems to be really hard to promote their card (apparently due to some change they made or something...I don't care), they're currently giving more trade-in value to stuff you bring in and lowering the price of what you take out. So I dumped off a couple more games I'll never play again and grabbed Star Ocean: The Last Hope for the 360. Like Infinite Undiscovery, it'll be a while before I ever play it, but whatever. One more J-RPG for the system in my possession.

My latest review!
June 12, 2010

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II

Was hoping to have a second done today, but time seems to not be my ally, as I have plans for the evening. And tomorrow. So, I might finish it Monday.

I was going through my new/unfinished games and trying to prioritize them. God, I have a lot of games I could/should be working on. Like, a good year or more if I (a) don't buy/obtain any more games and/or (b) don't include all the stuff downloaded on my computer. So, I guess I won't be able to claim I'm bored and have nothing to play for some time.


Game trading!
June 10, 2010

Yesterday, I took the day off work and traded off a bunch of older games I'll never play again for four others.

Obtained the two PS2 God of War games. I'd played the first one for a bit (I think through Athens up to the tunnel leading to the desert), Red Faction: Guerrilla (another game I've played for a bit) and Infinite Undiscovery (due to my obsessive desire to play most known J-RPGs).

A big number! Yay! It makes up for the fact that instead of working on a review today, I just zoned out and aimlessly surfed the net!

Offer congratulations here! (note to EmP: "congratulations" does NOT include issuing a reminder that you recently hit 400K review hits)

EXCITEMENT!

Modern Warfare 2

My latest review. Struggled a bit writing it. I've noticed that the more obscure and/or retro a game is, the easier it is for me to write about it. Probably because I've done so many retro reviews over the years.

Next review likely will be the PS2 Baldur's Gate 2, as I finished it last week or so. I'm playing Lament of Innocence right now. Also feeling a bit of a desire to do something really retro. Zig's contest review is making me thing it'd be fun to review a cutesy shooter or something like that. It's been a while since I've reviewed one of those.
