Why Mass Effect 2 isn't as good as its predecessor

I admit, I have to get it out of my system. As much as I like the game, it's a lot worse than the first one. It's not a bad game by any means, but it could've been much better. Everything, from the plot structure to gameplay elements, is flawed in a major way.

The story. It is not a part of the overarching plot - the Reapers as a threat to the galaxy. Instead we get a new villain, who was not even mentioned in the previous installment. It's established and finished with in this one...

Lesser known survival horrors - is Haunting Ground any good?

Haunting Ground a.k.a Demento(in Japan), produced by Capcom, is the lesser known horror game of the Japanese giant, the better known being Resident Evil. Why HG wasn't widely advertised by Capcom? What happened?

It was the year 2005. Resident Evil 4 happened. 'Nuff said.

It's actually surprising, considering the game has high production values, therefore a considerable budget must've been assigned to this project. Why Capcom didn't advertise it as much as RE4 is beyond...

Disciples 3 - it sucks, why?

Boring combat, linear map design, lack of freedom in choosing a hero, preset artifacts, useless shops, no need to hire other heroes, stupid opponent AI, mostly crappy character redesign, poor voice acting, probably the worst narrator ever, bugs, bugs, bugs.

Add the fact, that 90% of the missions are ridiculously easy and the rest is only a tad hard and you've got yourself a disappointment of the year, assuming you loved the second installment like me.

And why add critical...

The eternal Struggle -- How to kill Boredom, or befriend it

Posted 02-12-2008 at 06:46 PM by Micki! (The eternal Struggle -- How to kill Boredom, or befriend it)
Updated 02-14-2008 at 11:51 AM by Micki! (I just had an Actual moment of boredom that made me do something creative...)

Boredom is an acient enemy of mine, yet sometimes my best friend...

Boredom strikes me every single day at some point, it prevents me from having fun when i want to, it makes me lazy when i want to be active, and makes me check out things that don't interest me...


And other times, it encourages me to go and make something creative on a piece of paper, you might want to thank boredom for making me create majority of the Duke Nukem Fanart work that i have submited...

After getting a pretty decent response to the question about whether people would use the blog addon here, I've decided to go ahead and implement it. This post you are reading is the first ever post made on the system here, and details a few of the remarks about it.

The majority of these are being done because I want to not create increased server load and demand.

1) I will NOT be turning on trackbacks or pingbacks.

2) You have to have an account...
