Groundhog's Day: Dead and Dead Again

The true goal of the Western RPG is choice: the choice to do things differently, to be able to make your choices, not the characters, and experience a different world. That choice becomes replay value, which becomes playin...

 


Death and Pathos: Saving the Princess

Video games arenít serious. Thereís a reason for this: we gamers are more interested in doing absurd things, or feeling a sense of accomplishment, than in exploring the dark, untouched places of the human psyche. Given th...

 



E for Effort: I Tried

There are some games you are expected to like, especially if you fall into the games as art camp. Braid, Shadow of the Colossus, Flower, even some more mainstream titles like Half Life 2. Not liking them is seen as a sort...

 


Review: Pokemon SoulSilver/Heartgold

One could say writing a review of Pokemon SoulSilver is utter folly, and they'd be pretty close to right. After all, Game Freak have made the same basic game since the mid nineties: find pokemon, catch them, level them up...

Let's try to be interesting!

My name is Tom. That's a name. That's a start! My user name is an anagram of my real name, which is probably the coolest thing I can say about myself. I've been a gamer for nineteen years now (since Sonic 2), and I'd love to be one for nineteen more. Besides games, I also read a lot of books, listen to a lot of bands, and I write copious amounts of fiction I don't like enough to post on the internet.

My favorite games, in no particular order:
Mother 3
Chrono Trigger
Planescape: Torment
Heroes of Might and Magic 3
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Dragon Age: Origins
Super Mario 64
Demon's Souls
Persona 3
Grand Theft Auto 4
Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
Final Fantasy Tactics

Basically, I like games where mans stand on one side of the screen and kill different mans on the other. And platformers. And things with a decidedly gothic sense of style. And turn based strategy. And plot. And pretentious indie games, though none of those are on my list. Basically, I like nearly everything except shooting mans in linear levels.

Social networking crap will point you to my twitter account, which I use occasionally. Godspeed.
