About
Random Info:

I love retro games, particularly of the SCUMM adventure and gold-boxed type. I collect games that I consider to be top notch so I don't have a huge collection but the ones in it count.

A woman ran off with my NES and SNES and all the games (~50 or so).

These days I mostly play EVE Online and whatever is fun and multiplayer on the 360 and PC, and when I have time, the large stack of games I've been meaning to play (mostly RPGs in that stack).

Small rant:

Why does playing multiplayer games on the 360 have to be such a pain? Let us walk through this.

1. Start game
2. Select Multiplayer
3. Pick a mode
4. Wait
5. Can't connect
6. Goto 1 (what?)

(Time elapsed: 1-5 minutes)

So where is the game list? Where do I pick my low ping game from a list? Why has this not made the jump from the PC to the console game world? At what point did someone who'd never played a PC game decide this was a good system? When it does work, who knows what I'm going to get? Anywhere from lag city to a bunch of assholes.

That is all.
