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.


Here we go with another letter completed!

O = Obscure: The Aftermath

Now that's taken care of, what will be next? Good question, as per the norm, I'm muddling through several different games as opposed to actually playing one (or two at the most) with anything resembling focus.

So it could be:
Resident Evil 4
Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Oracle of Ages or Oracle of Seasons (yes, I am simultaneously playing all three)
Fire Emblem
Emerald Dragon
A special surprise (ie: a quicky shooter or platformer review cranked out for a game I busted through in a couple of hours cuz I didn't want to play any of the main projects)!

Another new review!

Tag Team Wrestling

Posted here one day after actually being put on the site. Not going to help with the Alphabetic Marathon because I've already done "T", but I just felt the need to write about this game.


And here we go with gaming updates!
March 25, 2008

Guess I've only really been playing three games in the recent past. This is always a chaotic time for me as I love the NCAA basketball tournament, so I've spent much of my free time the past two weeks either (a) drinking and watching the conference tournaments leading into the NCAA one or (b) drinking and watching the NCAA one.

So, here we go!

1. Resident Evil 4: Just started this one at the urging of a friend who owns the GameCube version and absolutely love it. Since I paid like $6.50 to rent it from Saturday to Thursday, I'll be driving to a used game shop either Thursday or over the weekend to pick it up cheap.

Good news for me, good news for you!
March 05, 2008

First off, I will have my really late RotW out tomorrow or Friday at the latest.

Second off, if you got to www.romhacking.net , you'll find a completed translation patch for the first SNES Fire Emblem game. It's both a remake of the original Japanese NES one and an apparently never otherwise released sequel. If, like me, you look at the Fire Emblem games as utterly wonderful turn-based S-RPGs, this is a find that's hard to pass up.

Third off, my apologies for not having the RotW out yet or for not being really visible the last few days. First ,as a sports reporter, I'd been swamped with Ohio's high school wrestling meet. I'd also been under the weather, which got worse with multiple 10+ hour days.

Game Progress: OD Style
February 14, 2008

So, what have I been playing recently between finally finalizing a dissolution and being bogged down at work due to it being basketball playoff time? Read on to find out!

1. Ace Combat IV: Shattered Skies -- friend loaned it to me a ways back and I'm finally playing it now. Never really taken time to do a flight simulating game before, but this one's pretty fun, especially now that I'm getting used to the controls. Only done two missions, but I'm digging it.
