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.
All entries subject to change, since I honestly listen to so much music in so many genres that I know I'll be missing some great stuff because I'm kinda doing this spur-of-the-moment-like. I'll only include genres for groups I feel the majority of you don't listen to/care about/know about....although I do include commentary for all!
#: 311 (best number group I have anything by...by far).
A: Amorphis (Finnish folk/death/progressive metal/rock....depending on time period...they evolved greatly from their early pure death days)
B: Bob Dylan ('nuff said)
C: Cathedral (British stoner metal, influenced heavily by Sabbath, but with a heavier, sludgier sound)
D: Dream Theater (awesome progressive rock/metal)
E: Entombed (Swedish death/hardcore punkish stuff)
.....at home, alone and getting lifted. What was I to do for amusement? It hit me like a sledgehammer of justice to the hallowed halls of my resin-and-rum-soaked brain. Tecmo Super Bowl! So, I decided to play as the Jets for reasons unknown (possibly because the late Dennis Byrd is one kick-ass middle linebacker and I love teams with those) and rattled off five games before coming down and going to bed.
And, therefore, here you are with my review of said game. Since I'm really fucking lazy and only getting lazier as the days go by, I'm not providing you with a HTML link to it. The way I look at things, if you're too fucking lazy to find it the old-fashioned way, you aren't good enough to read my shit. Bastards.
So, anyhoo, when I was in the office today making up a couple of hours that I was behind for the week (by writing a review....I'm a good worker guy!), I realized I haven't done anything for or with the site in a couple of weeks beyond a drunk message board post or two.
I didn't write down the names of these levels and only actually remember one of them (the best of the bunch), but these are some great levels. Besides, I've gotten Blu hooked on AV now......especially when he found himself facing about eight Mancubi w/ 1% health.....with next to no cover.
LEVEL 4: Very nicely-designed level that gives you a hint of the larger-scale mayhem you'll be facing down the line. A very effective trap fairly early on put me on my toes and the hell knight/weak enemy ambush at the end was a very nice firefight. 8/10
LEVEL 5: Nice fort level. The beginning is very good, with you having to gun a few foes down while formulating a strategy to handle the HKs firing at you from a distance. After that, it gets more vanilla, but still has some fun. 6/10
I have reached not ONE, but TWO milestones this past week and decided to share my overwhelming joy with you other people. First, with my Sagaia review, I hit the 150 review mark on this site. Now, I've written more than that, but those 10-20 substandard ones from my early days are only on GameFAQs where stuff like that belongs. Also, during this week, I reached the 25000-hit mark. Yeah, I know....Zig was bragging about reaching 20000 for one review, so that takes a bit of the luster off that milestone, but....it's still kind of neat because when I first started submitting here, the thought that people would look at my stuff that many times hadn't even entered my mind.
I got fed up with 30 Levels and threw in the towel on it last night, so here are my final comments on it.
I've been celebrating a new beginning to my Doom playing over the last year or so when I discovered a few sites with fan-made levels and games using Doom II's awesome customization abilities. During my brief period of time on livejournal, I made a bunch of entries reviewing the work of these people. And now, despite the fact that Blu's likely the only person who will even have one iota of interest in any of this.....I'm now using this blog-thing for that.
