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.


Good times!

Yesterday, I found out something potentially great. The translation patch for the Super Famicom version of Emerald Dragon was completed, so many months after reading Zig's kickass review for the TG-CD version, I'll get to play (one version of) the game myself!

And here we go again!

Second letter down in the Alphabet Marathon!

My second one down, only 25 more to go!

T = Tales of Legendia

So, what's next? I'd guess Ace Combat 4, Kingdom Hearts, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance and Dragon Quest V might be front-runners, but you never know. I might just play some really crappy NES game to spew a bit of venom.

Overdrive blatantly pimps himself and his blog.
January 23, 2008

Well, I started my entries in EmP's Alphabet Marathon.

Here's my first entry: F = Flying Hero

Considering I'm planning to do a review for Final Fantasy XII this year, one might wonder why I reviewed a game beginning with "F" for my first entry in this thing. And the only answer I can give you is that I was doped to the gills on medicine and, therefore, that didn't enter my head.

Potential games that will be reviewed for this (and possibly other) contests in the near future:

A: Ace Combat 4, Adventures of Lolo (yes, another two games for one letter thing)
D: Dragon Quest V
F: Final Fantasy XII
T: Tales of Legendia

RPG Villains -- which ones are the best?
January 09, 2008

Last night, while still recovering from the mass amounts of booze I put in me while watching my Ohio State Buckeyes get raped of their dignity by LSU on Monday, I was fiddling around with my "when I don't feel up to anything else" replay of Dragon Quest VIII and a thought went into my head.

Remember a couple of months ago when I put up a blog entry or two ripping on the quality of RPG heroes (or something like that). Well, that made me think about who the best villains are. It's a pretty complicated thing, as hardly any of the final boss enemies really can count, as they tend to be huge demon creatures that don't have much of a presence throughout the game as anything more than a behind-the-scenes presence.

And the moment you all have been YEARNING for has arrived!
December 30, 2007

Yes. If you look at the front page of this site or here in my blog, you'll see my 200th Honestgamers review.

It's for the epicly epic Wally Bear and the No Gang, which is one of those beloved, forgotten classics that no child should be forced to go without experiencing.

So, I hope you all have as much fun reading this review as I had playing the game. Or maybe not, as that might make you gouge your eyes out. So, I hope you have as much fun reading this as you have doing other things you find fun.

Rock on.

AS IS #199!!!!
December 21, 2007

It's for Lufia: The Ruins of Lore. Also to be my entry in the ABC tournament. Easily found on this very site, from my blog and the front page (at least for now, a number of staff-types still have to enter their review, so it could disappear from there quickly).

Now comes the fun! Guess which game I'll be reviewing for my ground-breaking, earth-shattering 200th review!!!! For an event like this, a little community involvement is necessary.

So, share your favorite Overdrive Reviewing Memories, tell me I'm great and try to figure out what #200 will be.

And Felix, no it's not that damn fucking Castlewhatever game you keep trying to force upon me. I'll get to that one in due time. This ain't due time.
