Blog is back, back again!

 Wow, 3 blogs in a space of a week. Seems like its 2006 all over again. Anyway, I would first like to thank everyone who gave their time to watch my recent video remembering what I call the "good old days" of Gamespot and how I would like to play games and chat with some of my online friends again. Everyone who gave their opinion on the situation I appreciate and pretty much was the same opinion nonetheless, which I kind of expected.

Since the videos, I have played some Super Street Fighter IV with Mike (EightBitWarrior) & Michael (LordofUltima) and was good fun although I ain't really great at the game. Had a few matches also with people over at a place called FrugalGaming and that will be happening every Tuesday night, which is pretty cool. Really like playing that game despite me being pretty mediocre at it.

Another game I have been playing is Picross 3D, which is my very first Picross game. Man, it is so addicting to play. I tend to play it during my break time in work but it is definitely one of those games you can pick up and play for several minutes at a time or play for a few hours and try to 3-star every puzzle in the game. I have to get the other Picross game now due to loving this one a lot. It's in the running for my DS game of the year thus far. Also, working my way through a 5-year old game known as Half Life 2. I am in the Nova Prospekt chapter (Chapter 10) meaning I only have another 3 chapters to do and it's in the bag. I ain't going to do the episodes afterwards since a big game is coming out next week and will be dedicating my time to it in single-player and multi-player. That game is of course Red Dead Redemption.

I really hope this doesn't give me the same disappointment as GTA IV did but its a western open world game that is bound to be good since I enjoyed GUN for what it is and this should be 10 times better. If you guys are up for some MP action, hit me up and we can raid gangs and camps and cause chaos.

As you can see, I have been doing reviews recently also. I am in the process of my Nier review at the moment, which should be finished during the weekend but will be over at GamerEuphoria.com for a exclusive period of time before I put them over here so if you want to read them first, go over there. Rocket Knight is one I plan to do soon as well and boy that game brought back fond memories of my childhood.

Anyway, just want to say thanks to all of you who have stuck with me these past 4 years and let's look forward to the future with great games and great times. Peace!

Back again? What, did you join me in that hiatus? Also, why the GameSpot smiley? And why's your review exclusive to GamerEuphoria? Is there something I don't know? (Answers: no, I don't know, I don't know, and yes.)

@Video_Game_King: Well yeah, I am back doing regular blogs since I barely have done any this year to tell you the truth so want to become a bit more active again.  I copied it over from GS hence the smiley.  I am part of the staff over at GamerEuphoria doing reviews and going to the Eurogamer expo with them in London in October and no, I just explained my answers.

@Darro: 
 
Explain this one: how the hell did you get that job? I've heard a lot about this, but not anything on how to get the damn job as a game reviewer.

@Video_Game_King:  A guy I know who runs the site pretty much asked me if I wanted to become part of the staff on his site and review games and I said yes.  That is pretty much it.  Its Andy Williams by the way.  It ain't a professional games site now like Gamespot or Giant Bomb but its something you know.  I know I don't do the best reviews in the world but I hopefully will improve over time.
