About
I was playing the hell out of Fallout 3 until my 360 red ringed... so I've been spending some much needed quality time with:

Disgaea 3
Valkyria Chronicles
Final Fantasy Tactics A2
Ultimate Ghosts'N Goblins (balls hard, like it should be)
Okami for the Wii--which I've had for a while, but never gotten around to playing.


Once I get my 360 back, I'll be finishing up Fallout 3

I'll also be returning to my regular Team Fortress 2 group... unless they're all playing Left 4 Dead... which is entirely likely.

It'll also be nice to get back to Rock Band, Bionic Commando Rearmed, Castle Crashers (which I put off like a moron), and Mega Man 9 (which I got to play exactly once before my RRoD.


I watch a fair amount of movies, most recently:

Natural City
Unleashed
Run Fatboy Run
Dr. Strangelove
Yojimbo
Rollerball (1975)

Uh, my tastes are all over the place


My favorite video game character is Mega Man. I'm not talking that Battle-net-.exe-Star-Force nonsense. I'm talking Blue Bomber Mega Man 2. The Mega Man Zero GBA games were pretty good, and the few entries of the X series hold a special place in my heart.

Even so, Bionic Commando (NES) will always be my personal favorite video game of all time. Words can't accurately describe my anticipation for the new BC coming next year.

So, I've been having a blast with Bionic Commando Re-armed and was already pulling my hair out with the Final Exam (room 56) and the secret challenge rooms. Lo and behold, the inner masochist in me has found even more reasons to throw my controllers and cry myself to sleep. I turn your attention to the Bionic Commando homepage where Gearoid Reidy, producer Ben Judd's right-hand man, reveals four fan-designed challenge rooms that are sure to provide more frustration for those not entirely ready to throw in the towel.

After trying out the rooms myself, I can easily see myself seeking refuge from these new challenge rooms by getting sauced, but it's still light out, and I've barely played each room more than a handful of times.

The one by Eurogamer has already induced sharp pains in the base of my brain...

Included is the room designed by Aaron Sedillo, winner of the Bionic Commando Design-a-Challenge-Room contest--which I had never heard of, but will gladly enjoy the along with the other three.

Sedillo's Design


According to the in-game text worked into the new rooms, Ben Judd is said to be in possession of other secrets still locked away within Re-armed. Here's hoping that it starts to trickle out in a timely fashion.

So, I've been meaning to join for a while now... I really wanted to enter the Etrian Odyssey contest, but I'm a bit lazy, so I just kept putting it off. Honestly, it would have been nice to have the deadline delayed, but that would be horrid if everything got pushed back around here. I look forward to many, many hours of procrastinating.


I'm talking to myself basically... I tend to do that. This will just have to be the placeholder for the initial post. Pretend I wrote something clever.
