overdrive

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.


Like pulling teeth.....
September 17, 2009

So, after a bit of a writing hiatus to recharge my batteries from the TT, here is my review for Wild Arms.

Tough one to write, so I hope it comes off well. I spent most of yesterday afternoon alternating between staring off into space and sporadically typing for a bit. And it took about 2 hours just to wrap things up. Hopefully my next review isn't so painful to write.

Wouldn't want to feel left out......OD's TT recap
August 31, 2009

Let's see. Not my best team finish (losing in semis, as opposed to losing in the finals) and at 3-5, this was my second worst individual finish......but I'm overall still feeling kind of positive about things.

During the nine weeks that composed my eight matches (including the off week before the playoffs), I wrote something like 10-12 reviews and used six of them in the contest. I'd actually say that of all the years I've been part of this, this one might have had the most reviewers consistently cranking out new material, which made things really fun and unpredictable.

The Work Which Transforms God
August 21, 2009

No, I'm not talking about Blut Aus Nord, but my last review which I wrote yesterday.

Here it is: Mazes of Fate

Don't know what I'll be working on next. My brain hurts. Might get back to those unfinished 360 RPGs (Lost Odyssey, Enchanted Arms) or finish up a few games that I've had on hiatus for a long time. Blu's Circle of the Moon review might get me inspired to finish Aria of Sorrow.....I dunno.

Overdrive Update: 8/12/09 version
August 12, 2009

I = Icarus: Alien Vanguard

S = 'Splosion Man

Two reviews done last week, two new letters as a result! Well, technically, one was put on the site Sunday, but it was done Thursday.....I just couldn't post it, as a Time Warner cord was severed in my yard somehow, leaving me without teh interwebz for a day and then I was away from home Friday, Saturday and most of Sunday.

HG Achievement Unlocked: 1500 KBs of reviews
July 30, 2009

Which I made last night with the 11:50ish HG time release of this: Vagrant Story

I believe only Jason has more KB of reviews than I do on the site (Masters has more total reviews, but fewer KB), which only cements my legacy of awesomeness even more than it had been!

Oh yeah......

Amongst all the excitement of last night, what with trying to get this thing finalized and shit, I forgot to do my token link-posting, so here ye be!

Challenge of the Dragon

In other news, a friend and I rented Red Faction: Guerrilla and then I've played it myself a bit over the last two days. This game is the definition of uber-awesomeness. Blowing up all sorts of installations with the option of going in all guns blazing or finding a way to sneak in, plant some charges, set them off from a distance and watch the carnage ensue.

The fun of Overdrive's Summer BASH continues!
July 15, 2009

Instead of Color Dreams, this time Midway takes the knife in the back for their abysmal GBA port of Gauntlet: Dark Legacy.

Note to future designers: if a series is primarily known for its multiplayer capacity, don't release a port without it.....especially if said port is arguably the worst game in the series with or without multiplayer abilities.
