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.

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time

I had fun typing this one. I was in a fairly whimsical mood. Or just more insane than usual.

In the near future will be my take on Modern Warfare 2, which should be interesting considering my general apathy towards multiplayer stuff, which is a big part of this game's appeal. Will I have liked the campaign enough to praise this game?!? Tune in to find out!

NEW REVIEW ALERT!
April 10, 2010

Project: Snowblind

I had fun with that game.

On another note, does anyone have that "nemesis" game? By which I mean a good game that you like and get into, but never seem to really make much progress with it. I started a new attempt on my nemesis game last night: the SNES Ogre Battle. I love so many things about the game, in particular how you have to monitor the strength of your units because your reputation goes down the drain if you build up a tiny handful of units and have them slaughter all the enemy...or liberate towns with low-aligned units and whatnot. And who wants to achieve an ending that features your character as a soon-to-be assassinated tyrant?

Multitasking: Just one thing I'm too stupid to handle
April 01, 2010

So, last night, I had my plan set. I have two TVs in my living room, so if I want to watch something while gaming, I can.

I wanted to watch the UFC stuff on Spike and I wanted to play Project Snowblind. What happened was that I got through most of one level in Snowblind over the 3+ hours I was watching TV. I couldn't focus on both things at once, so I was essentially watching TV and playing a game during commercial and interview segments between fights.

And it's like that in reverse, too. If I just have a random game on TV that I don't really care about, I'll catch myself looking up and being like, "Whoa! How'd it get from 12-5 to 41-38 that quickly?"
In short, I'm just not good at multi-tasking. Woe is me.

My latest review for all of you (poetic, ain't it?)
March 26, 2010

Darwinia+

Fun game. Now back to Project: Snowblind. Shoot, shoot, shoot; kill, kill, kill.

And also my replaying of the first American Fire Emblem on the GBA, this time in Hector Mode instead of Eliwood Mode. Fun little battle of attrition at times. Did Chapter 13x to get Merlinus. Took me three tries, but that was more because my goal was to kill the boss and visit the village, rather than just surviving for the seven turns that is this fight's stipulation. Next up is my assault of Laus and the beating up up Erik, the dickish son of the Marquess of Laus.

Oh yeah, teammates for the contest thing! This is my contest entry. Please offer any potential input you have. I may even have time over the next day to put advice into work!


Finally!

Batman: Arkham Asylum is complete!

In early January, I went to my best friend's house and we spent an entire day playing this game. I had plans to have it reviewed by the middle of that month. But instead, it stuck on my desktop and stuck there and stuck there with me occasionally opening it and adding a bit more or deleting a bit. Finally, today, I finished it! Now on to my next review, which hopefully will take less than a month to type.

Things That Annoy Me: V1
February 17, 2010

The decreased challenge in games. I was playing Medal of Honor: Frontline tonight. Levels 2-3 and 2-4 aren't notorious for being tough or anything, but they were long and loaded with enemies AND there are no in-level saves or checkpoints, so if you screw up, a good deal of work could be wasted. You have to conserve health items, as one mistake could force you to backtrack to rejuvenate yourself...or risk death by whatever enemy crosses your path next.
