Catching Up With Adventure Games
Obviously I've tried to reconcile with my foolish past of being an unfledged gamer with wanton materialism, primarily thanks to eBay. Consequently, most of my gaming purchases the last few months were solely adventure games, because I'm pissed off and have a shitload of catching up to do. Certainly the most impressive purchase was Snatcher (see my post on that below), but I'm also absolutely ecstatic to finally own The Secret of Monkey Island, as well as three of the sequels that follow. I need to get off my ass and play all the crap I bought (instead of writing), but I sadly haven't had the time; or, at the least the time I want to devote to the games. Currently playing through the first Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and absolutely loving it, as well as LucasArts' Full Throttle. I've been kinda slacking on the latter, but what I have played is superb, although I imagine it will be hard to top Schafer's extraordinary Grim Fandango. I think I'm most excited for The Last Express, mainly because of the exalting review on Hardcoregaming101.com and my love for animation. Sigh...I should be beating Snatcher right now. I would have been done with it if my goddamn cat didn't eat my Sega Genesis AV cord, but thankfully a new one just came in the mail. Shit.
I have been wasting my life with sleep. I should start doing meth.
