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.
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.
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.
If your idea of heaven is hellishly poor games. Sure, they're easy targets for bash reviews, but I'm having fun rattling through their titles for the time being. Let's see how many more I get through before I get tired of them!
Operation Secret Storm
Coming up tomorrow or Wednesday is a review for a non-Color Dreams game, but don't fret! It'll still be a bash!
Today: Drakan: The Ancients' Gates
Monday....or was it Sunday?: Robodemons
Robodemons was written to whet my creative juices and hopefully Drakan was a good example of said juices. As to what's next for me, I haven't a clue. With it being TT time and with me liking to have new stuff up at least every other week, I'll want to get a new review up soon, but at the moment, I have next to no clue as to what I'll be playing.
My Bionic Commando: Rearmed review mentioned in my previous blog post is my 250th review on this site.
So there's another achievement unlocked for me! 250 REVIEWS!!!!
Bionic Commando: Rearmed
Now that I'm truly into summer for a couple months and immersed in the team tournament, hopefully, I'll be back to my early-year writing production and not the more lackluster results of the past two months or so, when work has really gotten in my way.
Since seemingly every game I've been playing for some time is for a letter I've already reviewed this year, I'm shocked to see I actually reviewed a game for one I hadn't touched yet. All thanks to just randomly mentioning the name on the message boards and then deciding it'd be cool to write about it.
A = Amnesia
Now, it's off to make my team tournament second round pick. And then do other stuff.
