Kojima Syndrome Redux

Sometimes killing two birds with one stone is not a good idea. Last week, was one of those times. In my previous post concerning Condemned: Criminal Origins I attempted to describe why despite all of itís strengths the game failed to grab...


Kojima Syndrome (Condemned: Criminal Origins)

Warning: The Following Post contains spoilers concerning Condemned: Criminal Origins. Shortly after I picked up my 360, I was browsing the bargain bin at my local gamestop and I found a copy of Condemned: Criminal Origins for less than $10...


Introductions, where it began, blah blah blah

Hey everyone, my name is Dan, and in April of this year I finally got around to buying an XBOX 360. I did this after realizing that an import copy of Red Seeds Profile aka Deadly Premonition was going to cost me close to $90 after shipping...


About HandsomeDanone of us since 7:30 PM on 03.24.2010

I am a 20 something gamer with a penchant for all things horror. When I'm not working I split my time playing videogames with a prediliction towards the spooky stuff and a few other interests including playing music and running a regional record label based out of Fort Wayne, IN called Midwestern Decline. My addiction to horror games began about the time I played a demo for the original Alone In The Dark on my parents computer. My wife finds my affinity for the dark and disturbing odd but endearing. I love her for that.

Top Fives (in no particular order)

Silent Hill 2
Fatal Frame
Deadly Premonition
Resident Evil 2

Night of The Living Dead
Let The Right One In
Evil Dead/Evil Dead 2/Army of Darkness
The Shining

Outside of all of this horror business, I'm a fairly average guy. I put in my 40 hours a week as a loan interviewer at a small credit union. I still play the occasional non-horror related game, mostly multiplayer stuff like Madden or Team Fortress 2. I also am interested in Western RPG's and few JRPG's, mostly what Atlus has their hands on. I'm currently about half way through Persona 3. I'm addicted to netflix where I watch an unhealthy dose of romantic comedies, film noir, westerns, and 90s television. The small record label I run has so far released music mostly in the hardcore punk genre, but is branching out to include post-rock, indie rock, and even some metal. Music was probably my first love, as I've been in and out of bands in different genres for the last 8 years. If there is anything else you'd like to know just ask.

The Long List of my Favorite Bands that I Can't Edit (sorry :)

The Misfits, The Ramones, Black Flag, Minor Threat, Bad Religion, Negative Approach, Seige, Infest, Drop Dead, Bauhaus, The Sisters of Mercy, Joy Division, The Cure, The Smiths Depeche Mode, New Order, Slayer, Anthrax, Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Danzig, Nirvana, Alice In Chains, The Melvins, Kyuss, Sleep, Electric Wizard, Black Sabbath, Godflesh, Helmet, Ministry, Entombed, Carcass, Obituary, Eyehategod, Strife, Botch, Deadguy, Converge, Unbroken, Integrity, Bane, Saves The Day, The Get Up Kids, Jimmy Eat World, Sunny Day Real Estate, Texas Is The Reason, and Orchid.

Sorry I know that list seems long, but it's the best I can do. I listen to a lot of music.
