Some say he never sleeps and eats only gourmet amaretto cupcakes. Others claim he's a hyperactive optimist. To citizens of the Destructoid empire, though, he's Captain Starkey, Intergalactic Games Journalist.
Disclosure: In my undergrad at the University of Minnesota, I did do PR and event promotion for Microsoft. It does not and has not affected any of the pieces I have written, but it is something that you, as a reader, should know.
I want to make some sort of pathetic attempt to keep this active, though it seems that is getting harder by the day. A growing problem for me has been the amount of time I am spending on non-gaming things. I haven't really sat-down and played anything outside of a LAN since LA Noire came out.
I've had the same two games out from Gamefly since the start of the summer, and Steam hasn't really helped my situation.
On the to-play list right now:
Saboteur GTA4 The Darkness Condemned 1 and 2 Ilo Milo Bastion Scrapland Bit.Trip everything Atom Zombie Smasher Alpha Protocol Amnesia: The Dark Descent Dear Esther Europa Universalis 3 Far Cry 2 Machinarium The longest Journey Dreamfall the Longest Journey Torchlight Left 4 Dead 2 Infamous the new need for speed game Heavy Rain Metal Gear Solid 4
Just a few months ago I had no backlog... now I'm wondering how I will finish these before the end of the year. I really need to stop buying so many games. :(
