welcome. everything I write here is something I felt to be important to some degree; game reviews, life updates/vents, and philosophical musings. I do my best to make my statements truthful. everyone is welcome to post comments, provided they are relevant.


agh, I start college tomorrow. so uncertain.... but to keep me distracted from such trivial concerns, I have two more rentals! all hail blockbuster.

First thing I tried, being the uber old-skooler I am, is Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex. plot, as usual is at a minimum, and there are lots of crystals and gems to collect. the premise this time is that the evil spirit is pissed at the decrease in evildoing. they decide to release the elementals, earth, water, fire, and ice, in conjunction with Cortex's new friend, Crunch (another bandicoot). the crystals seal up the elementals, but you learn at the end that the gems can revive them. enter the uber old-skooler. this game is actually a challenge if you want to get all the goods. there are five levels requiring that you acquire time-trial relics, five for each level (meaning all levels need a relic). unless you have nothing else to do, you won't finish this game 100% unless this is a 7 day rental, which it wasn't.

Next in the line-up is Kinetica, my new favourite game! this thing rocks, and I normally don't play racing games. to show my age, I'll say that this game reminds me of F-Zero and... a game I remember featuring unicyles. these guys and gals (2:6 without special characters) have got wheels attached to their hands and feet while they cruise on anti-gravity tracks at speeds of 300-600 km/h! the scenery is absolutely stunning and guaranteed to get in your way as you fly through the air performing one of several stunts which grant you booster fuel once you land. thanks be to blockbuster for printing the stunt maneuvers on the back of the box. anyway, in season mode, you compete whith a slew of opponents, 4 of which will give you a particularly bad time, the rest of which get in your way. if you manage to complete a season, you unlock the next season. if you get 1st in all races, you unlock a special track. if you get 1st on that track, you get a special character! it's hard to decide which one I like best. one last thing, when you complete a season with a character, you'll get to see them without some of the gear.

yeee, I must buy Kinetica. if only I didn't like pizza so much... heh. later y'all


*sigh* i suck. it's a general feeling of suckage. i'll be going to Algonquin soon for robotics stuff. first term anyway.

Okage, for the PS2, is not my bag of nails. to me, it is slow, and the humour gets old. its only redeeming quality is that it is a 7-day rental. however, were i fresh blood for the console rpg, i am sure i would enjoy this game immensely. but i don't so too bad. would rather have rented... parappa 2.

finally got the Time Disorder disc. asked for it a year ago. but i'm not bitter. the site slogan is very much true.
