It’s a Monday?

Monday, December 31st, 2007

Oh man, I’m sick as shit today. My nictoine allergy really kicked it up into high gear this weekend. Sunday I could barely swallow or breath and at 5am, I was hacking up blood clots. Not the best way to end the year.

I’m in the office for 30 minutes or so because I remembered I needed to snag my deep fat fryer that has been here since Thanksgiving. Oops.

Busy weekend. Lots of working out and finishing off Shadow Hearts so I can review it for the new year. I realized I’d reviewed 2 & 3, but never the first. Oddly enough, after replaying SH1, I’m finding that I think 3 is the best gameplay wise. Too bad there will never be another game in this series.

Tonight is your typical NYE parties. I’m going to go back to bed as soon as I write this and try to sleep away as much of the sickness as I can before people come over and start smoking.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year’s. Stay away from the drinking.

Fridays Rule!

Friday, December 28th, 2007

1. A surprised me at work yesterday. We went out for peruvian chicken and it looks like she’s buying a house in late summer - about the time my lease is up in Arlington. She said she’d probably want a roommate when she gets the place. My first reaction was to spit water out and run screaming.

2. My New Year Resolutions are

a) Review any game I play this year, whether they are old or new. This helps me to build up the DHGF database and will also limit my playing time.

b) recommend a book once a week in this blog.

3. Speaking of New Year’s, Heather and Vlad are having a party that night. A and I are going to try get into this free Austrian classical music thing they are doing at the JFK center at 6pm that night beforehand. Well A kind of invited herself, which is fine, as its always good to have company.

4. Widro’s Fyrebug (http://www.fyrebug.com/) is open to the public. it’s a site that lets you make your own video games. If you haven’t tried it out ey, go on over and give it a look.

5. Yay for another long weekend!

And so its Thursday

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

Today it’s just a bunch of web site building and making the occasional dynamic report for the other people I work with. I hate how good something can look in Visio as a mock up and then like crap in Dreamweaver.

Clubbing weekend ahead, but not much else lined up. Just some work on DHGF and some relaxing. Yay for another 4 day weekend. I also have the 21st of Jan off, so it’ll be nice to have two long weekends in Jan. I’ve still only used a single vacation day. Not bad.

The former PM of Pakistan was assassinated this morning. Bhutto was the first female head of government in an Islamic run country. I’ll never understand the mentality of any fundamentalist group that thinks people will somehow magically think they’re the good guys when they are running around murdering people left and right.

I have an overwhelming sense of boredom as of late. Not really sure if its boredom or disappointment though. Probably boredom because there’s just not anything really exciting going on at the moment. That’s generally how it is in late December though. Kind dull.

Well, at least it will get amusing

I just accepted a friend request from David Farrant’s (aka Sean Manchester’s arch enemy) girlfriend on Facebook. Countdown to stalkings there in 5…4….3…

Three Day Work Week

Wednesday, December 26th, 2007

Man, it doesn’t feel like a Wednesday, does it? It feels like a Monday to me.

Raw 15th Anniversary collection hits today, and I’ll end up picking that up on my way home from work. Should be a decent buy.

Nearly beat Shadow Hearts. I forgot how short that game is. I’ve got 3 more Gravestone signs to pick up and I’m off to the Koudelka dungeon.

Weird weird dreams last night. One was for an animatronic pikachu that actually gave out teeny shocks. Another was for an A-Team van Hot Wheels car. The third was a motion picture length dream about a crazy serial killer who used to be institutionalized until the aslyum’s were all closed left and right during the Reagan years. He looks like Freakshow from Harold and Kumar. Really restless sleep last night. Not sure why, as I’ve been crazy relaxed lately.

Really light day today. Maybe I’ll write another poke article today to make the time go by faster. Go overwhelming sense of productivity!

Happy Holidays!

Tuesday, December 25th, 2007

It’s been an interesting long weekend. I’ve written an 8 page review of Nights and five different Pokemon articles for the magazine’s 100th issue. Busy busy.

Janna/Elfpire called Saturday night. First words out of her mouth were (and I’m slightly paraphrasing) “Alex - are you back in MSP, because I really want to fuck you and let you have your way with me.” Now I haven’t talked to this girl in some time, and as much as I’m always up for tawdry intercourse with attractive women, I never know how to respond to that being the first line out of any phone call, regardless of who it is, batshit insane or not. Thankfully I’m a time zone away in 60 degree weather, so I didn’t have to.

Not much really going on besides exercise and writing. I saw National treasure 2 last night with friends. It was good, but not as good as the first. I’ll probably end up buying it though. I haven’t touched a video game all weekend save to see what was added to the Wi virtual console on Monday (It was all crap). Today I figure I’ll have a bit of a Shadow Hearts marathon though.

Review #152

Monday, December 24th, 2007

Review: Nights: Journey Into Dreams

Nights: Journey Into Dreams
Publisher: Sega
Developer: Sonic Team
Genre: Platformer/Rail Shooter
Release Date: 12/19/2007

Back in the mid-to-late 1990’s, Nights was on of the biggest hits for the Sega Saturn. It (usually) came bundled with a joystick that would heavily influence the Dreamcast controller, and it featured graphics and gameplay that left most Sega fans ecstatic.

Not me though. I thought Nights looked boring as hell and continued to use my Saturn for titles like Six Man Scramble, Dragon Force, the Panzer Dragoon games, Shining Force 3, Guardian Heroes, Night Warriors, and Sakura Taisen. I actually never played the original Nights until 2001 when I got it and the joystick for $1.99 plus shipping off Ebay. I played it, beat it and found Nights to be just a mediocre title. It was pretty and it had a good score, but it was a platformer and it’s one of my least favorite genres. As you could tell from the above, I was using my Saturn mainly for RPG’s. I just chalked it up to my usual distaste for the genre and called it a day.

My opinion however was definitely in the minority though. People loved Nights and for nigh on a decade there were fans constantly whining for a sequel. Sega subdued them for a while by putting a re-release of Nights in a Gamecube turd known as Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg. I tried the original Nights once again in that, only to find myself bored with the game yet again. This time I found Nights to be the Final Fantasy of platformers. Sure it was pretty, but it lacked any depth and the gameplay was not very good. Yet still, fans wanted their sequel.

Now they have it. Sega 2,0 aka SammySega aka the company that has managed to ruin most of their franchises via games like Shadow the Hedgehog and Shining Force Neo has now turned to Nights. In my haded opinion it was probably because Sammy felt like destroying yet another beloved Sega franchise…or because they needed to cash in on the zealousness of Sega fans. Hell, I was one of those until the two pronged anal rape that was Shining Tears and Shining Force Neo.

You’re probably asking yourself, why I agreed to review this new Nights if I’m 1) not a fan of the original and 2) still pissed at how Sammy has ruined Sega for me and a lot of other long time fans. Well the answer is twofold. The first reason is that I really wanted to give Sega a chance. Nights + Wii controls seemed like a no brainer for a potentially awesome title. The other reason is that even if the game sucked, at least I knew I could spend most of the review ripping into the new Sega and pointing out how they haven’t had a true quality title since Panzer Dragoon Orta/

Either way I’d get some amusement out of it, and my readers would get one last review before the end of the year as an xmas present. Everybody wins!

So how was it?

Holy crap, my head hurts so much I can barely focus my vision. So of course today is the day they decide to move heavy objects at work and me being me is the prime candidate for toting 12 large file cabinets all over the office. At this point, I just want to gome home.

In an effort to keep my brain working, here’s some Rabbid videos.

1 day until a nice long break

Friday, December 21st, 2007

Didn’t really have a chance to update yesterday.

Weds night, Heather, Vlad and I watched the first three episodes of Lost Season 3 and finished off that six part “mini-season” last night. I will say the episodes hold up a lot better when watched all at once rather than one a week. I remember those were the weakest part when I originally saw them.

A showed up about Midnight Weds Eve/Thurs morning. We didn’t get much sleep, and I was exhausted all yesterday. She’s very touchy feely and we all know I’m not. She likes to wrestle and I’m always afraid of hurting her. She really likes to cuddle and I, well…I feel uncomfortable about it but I eventually reciprocate because I don’t want to hurt her feelings.

Here’s a snippet from that early morning convo.

Her: “I really like cuddling with you.”

Me: “Well thank you. That’s very sweet.”

Her: You know I don’t cuddle with anyone else, right?

Me: It’s never even crossed my mind actually.

Her: “Do you like cuddling with me?”

Me: “It’s not unpleasant.”

Her: “But you like cuddling with me, right?”

Me: “It’s not unpleasant.”

Her: “Say you like cuddling with me.”

Me: Fine. I like cuddling with you.

Her: Yay! *smooch*

Me: ….

I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me and my relationship phobia, but situations like this weird me out. I have no problem with being friends with people or being friends with benefits with people. But this? Letting someone spend the night when they can’t make it home and them insisting on sleeping with you rather than in different beds. Or lounging around cuddling? These are events that generally imply “more than friends” to me. If it was any of my other female friends doing this, I’d have a talk with them. Or if I was reciprocating with anyone else, I know my friends would give me a ton of shit for it. But because A says she does FWB and casual sex and things pretty close to how I do, I just tell myself she feels more comfortable with me for some reason. I could be wrong, and I know Heather thinks I am, but for once this is a conversation I don’t want to broach because I don’t want this to be a situation where I am misreading things because I have commitment issues.

Thursday I got up and had to go to work while A was still showering and getting ready. I lost a ton of work Weds. when my computer crashed and went in a bit early to redo it before my Friday afternoon deadline. I left work at 11:30am for out exceptionally boring work Xmas party. I got home about 3:30 and watched Resident Evil before taking a nap (partially from no sleep the might before and partially from a massive sugar crash.) Then I played some Nights: Journey Into Dreams.

Nights is the most beautiful game I’ve seen on any current system: Wii, PS3, or 360, and it has the best musical score out of any game this year, but holy hell is it one of the most boring and repeatitve games I have ever played. It’s getting a six, and I really wish I could score it lower, but the numbers don’t lie. Look for that review Xmas Eve/Christmas.

Not much else really going on at this time. It’s going to be a weekend of writing, writing, writing.
