Another day, another review ...

Ah ... there are some day I like my job. I ended up having to write up a game review earlier for a game that was ... well ... just bad. The game was Warriors Orochi for the Xbox 360 from Koei. So why, you ask, is it a good thing for me to write about a bad game? Because it's a nice way to relieve some pent up frustration.

You can read the review for yourself over at TeamXbox. Check it out, and maybe you'll get a chuckle or three out of it as well.

End of line ...

Rough week ... but working on it.

For those of you that talk to me regularly, this is already some old news, but the last week or so has been a particularly rough one for a variety of reasons. If you missed the news, my grandmother passed away last week on her 91st birthday, and while I'll admit to not being close, it obviously took a toll on my mother. Add to that some other personal issues, including becoming the ass end of a handful of jokes due to the actions of someone extremely close to me, and the ensuing (and unfortunately, still continuing) fallout from that, plus a lot of other related and unrelated issues ... well, let's just say the past week or so has ranked high, 1 if not a very close second in fact, on the Low Points list of my life. Making matters worse, only time will tell how things will really work out in the end ... and whether there's truth to things said, or if it's all just more "smoke and mirrors". It's going to be a really rough road ahead ... and not one I'm looking forward to traveling down, especially on my own.

On a somewhat more positive note, if you head on over to TeamXbox, the lead story is an interview article with Eric Holmes, lead designer on the upcoming next-gen game, Prototype. Look closely and you'll see the byline is yours truly. Hope you enjoy the read.

As for everything else, all I can do is try to take it day by day.
