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.


Dragon Age: Origins: II
November 29, 2009

Haven't had as much time with this as I'd want, but moving along.

1. Finished off early stage. The cinematic aspect of the battle/betrayal was well done. Very epic feel to the proceedings.

2. Lukewarm about the village there after the initial part is done. Almost like a tutorial after the origin part is over. The only remotely challenging fight was the one bandit party with a "leader" character.

3. Then did the free-for-me get-the-golem shit. Fun quest. I'll never look at my cats in the same way. Toughest fight was the one where you free the villagers, as the enemy had numbers and some good units (emissary) out there. It might replace the dude I got from the stupid village's cage as my tank....or replace Alistair, so I don't keep confusing him with me.

Dragon Age: Origins
November 19, 2009

Every few years, I actually like to do something really fucking crazy like buy a NEW game instead of one that's a year or two old and, therefore, cheap. I had many weiner-hardening choices when I left home yesterday.

I could have picked Modern Warfare II, but after reading Jason's review and various message board/blog entries, I think the last thing the world needs is my opinion of No Russian (if you do want it, I completely advocate terrorists mowing down the unwashed populace and would have probably killed more than any of the actual bad guys if I was playing it).

Another review.

Revelations: The Demon Slayer

This is for the Brevity or Bust challAnge.

As for my other gaming, I'm fiddling with Oblivion and screwing around with the first SNES Shin Megami Tensei and with Mystic Ark, but I'm really not focused on much of anything. Very unfocused, actually, with my gaming. Just sort of playing something for a half hour and then picking up something else. You'll have that.

The first of my trinity of Oblivion-related reviews is here!
November 05, 2009

The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles

Which will leave you all to wonder how long it will take for me to get to the other two parts (Knights of the Nine and Oblivion, itself). If I don't get sidetracked by something like Borderlands or Dragon Age: Origins, one or both will be up before the clock strikes Street Fighter 2010. If I do.....well, it'll happen sometime, some year.

I released this review: Ion Assault

In other news, I'm mainly playing the Shivering Isles part of Oblivion and gradually advancing through it.


Two days, two reviews

Final Doom

For the contest.

I'll have another new review up for an assigned game shortly after the weekend, I'd guess. Tuesday or Wednesday is my "hope to be done" day. Other than that, a bunch o' Oblivion-related gaming.

Another new review!

Streets of Fury

A moderately entertaining game I was assigned. Now it's time to write my contest review!

I'm primarily playing the Shivering Isles part of Oblivion now. Well, I'll really be delving into it in a bit, as I want to go back to the main world and do a bit of magic guild spell buying and some other stuff. A fun fact about HG is that there are seperate entries for both Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine, so my Oblivion Game of the Year pack will provide me with THREE reviews. Which makes it important to do both of those add-ons with as few interruptions as possible, so I don't screw up and mention stuff not pertaining to them in my reviews of them.
