When is it enough?


More action, less suspense.

While it's not the worst case scenario, I'm going to put my reputation on the line here and say Resident Evil could have gone a better way. Of course realizing Resident Evil's popularity was dwindling due to its notoriously clunky gameplay and a plot that was starting to lack variety, Resident Evil 4 threw most of the old formula out the window. And, even though it was a great game, it felt like the transition of moving forward a leap that large left some fans in the dust.

Also plaguing the franchise are terrible spin offs and a nonsensical prequel, so while the basic plot line of a mega corporation involved in viral and genetic experiments may sound like a lot of fun, the story is stretching thin and holes are showing. At any rate, it's understandable that Capcom wants to expand the timeline so that there's somewhere else to go, but I can only hope to feel that warm fuzzy feeling of fimilarity again.

BLOG ON. I tend to be prolific, but because it's been awhile since I wrote anything of substantial length, I've returned to hopefully become a regular writer on Giant Bomb--unofficially of course. As we speak... Well, I'm writing this blog, but shortly after I'll be hard at work preparing some reviews that I hope can measure up to some level of professional caliber.

A key interest of mine is that I dig survival horror--bit of a tidbit. So, I'll do a segment giving a rundown on upcoming titles as they appear, most certainly a comprehensive review. While horror gaming has been a bit of a hobby, I've accumulated enough of a collection to start feeling proud. Hopefully I'll have a chance to connect with other horror gamers around the community soon.

In other news, I've organized my profile to strut my peak interest, so be sure to check out my lists where you can find my Wishlist and FalseD's Seal of Approval games, which eventually will be updated with blurbs that address the supporting reasons for the award. Be advised it will take me awhile to get those lists up-to-date, there are many great games I would like to include yet.

Now if you'll excuse me, five hour old pizza beckons.
