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.
So, I figured I'd finish that Batman: Arkham Asylum review that's been sitting on my desktop today. Sadly, all I got done was about 3-4 paragraphs that were utter agony to rip out of my brain. I might finish it before I have to go, but it's looking like a real longshot right now. This is easily going to be the review that gave me the most difficulty to write.
Not because of the quality of the game or anything like that...but because it's of a sort I don't regularly play. And, now, the additional issue of how I binge-played it for one afternoon about a month or so ago is starting to become a factor, as many little things are escaping my memory.
Last year, I wrote a bunch of reviews. 30-some, I think. It was fun. You should hunt them down if you haven't read them yet. That is all.
Now it's 2010 and here's my third review of this year, which I did Saturday and am just now linking to my blog because I'm really lazy and stupid.
Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment
In other news:
I'm working on reviews for Batman: Arkham Asylum and Uncharted 2.
Finished this one up after it'd been stuck half-written on my desktop for a good month. With that taken into consideration, I doubt it's one of my best efforts, but at least it's a finished one!
In other news, apparently the Return to Ostragor DLC for Dragon Age: Origins is out now after being delayed a couple times. If so, I'll be downloading it tonight. And if I can beat Uldred in the Circle Tower, I might even play through it!
Entering the werewolf lair didn't turn out so well for me. My party tended to get raped repeated by about the first encounter with werewolves... especially during that inevitable moment when one would knock my character down, jump on him and repeatedly drill him into death. So, like any hero, I caved and decided to save this place for later.
Ys III, peeps!
Will this be the year I finally win the ABCs? I say so...and if three judges know what's good for them, they'll say so, too!
J = James Cameron's Avatar: The Game
Which brings me up to 18. Which is where I'll finish. I have one more review that I may finish tomorrow if I can get motivated to finalize it (writer's block has been a bastard with it), but it's for a letter I've already done.
In other news, since I haven't updated my Dragon Age: Origins quest!
1. Did the lower part of the Dalish forest ruins. Killed a Revenant there. He was a rough one, but I had far more trouble with the Arcane Horror in a different room. That bastard teleported all over the place blasting me with spells. Not cool....
And my journey continues. My party is Me, Alistair, Morrigan and Shale.
1. Bought and played The Warden's Keep downloadable content. Kind of a fun little quest.
2. Been short on playing time, but still have done a good chunk of the Dalish/Werewolf quest. Where I've learned the important lesson that Revenants are real bastards. I'll be going back to these woods at a later time for the tombstone battles and to collect 1-2 chests that I'm not good enough at lockpicking yet to open.
