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.
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
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.
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.
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.
For Destiny of an Emperor II. You can link to it from my blog page or the site's front page (at least for now).
Won't claim it to be one of my all-time bests, as I basically scratched it out while trying to get thoughts for my ABC review in order, but I had fun cruising through it and it's a short, easy read.
Two more to #200!!!!!
Not only am I currently working on my ABC Review RIGHT NOW!!!!! But I also have plans for two more Overdrive Productions in the near future.
1. While going through my library of ROMs, I noticed Destiny of an Emperor 2 was still there. I'd gotten nearly through the game when I upgraded my computer and, therefore, my emulators. I completely upgraded to a different NES emulator, which mean my save data and freeze state for that game no longer were usable. Not feeling any desire to replay that entire game, I forgot about it completely. But now, I remember it and will have a review of it up in the near future.
