INTROWelcome one and all to my little corner of the web, where video games of the past, present and future, and the people who love them, reign supreme. Here you'll find the reviews I've written of the games I've played. For those of you who've never been here before, my reivews are free of that tiresome "console war" bias that seems to permeate so much of the gaming media today. Instead, I try to judge games individually and in relation to the genre each game represents (FPS, RPG, etc.) I don't get caught up in the "my console is better than yours" hype. Instead, I just play games that look interesting, and then write about whether they were or not. I might compare one game to another, but I have better things to do than debate Sony versus Nintendo versus Microsoft. Like, you know, mowing the lawn. So if you're sick of the predjudice in "professional" game reviewing, you've come to the right place. If you like that kind of bias, well, there are plenty of message boards out there crawling with like minded individuals. Go visit one of them. But thanks for stopping by. If, on the other hand, you're looking for something different, then you've come to the right place. And if you have anything to say about what I'm doing, please contact me and let me know. Be sure to read the explanation of the spam blocker my email service uses before you do, though. Enjoy the site!
|09/01/07 -- My quote for this month comes from the words of the late great John Lennon: "Life's what happens while you're busy making other plans."|
I know I've had to say it a lot lately, but I'm sorry I haven't updated all summer. Way too many things happened to me this season, the big one being I got promoted at my job, so I've been going through all the stress and struggle that comes with learning a whole new set of responsibilies. But I'm starting to settle into my new role, and things are getting back to normal, so I should be able to keep things moving on this end for at least a while.
Here's some new stuff you'll be seeing in the coming months:
And finally, yes, I am aware that the New Metal Slug I put up shortly before going on that unplanned hiatus doesn't work. The link has been taken down for now, but I'm going to keep trying to get it functional. Hopefully I can, because it really is worth playing.
