Because this site is not filled with enough pointless stuff, here’s a little list of things I’m currently doing/interested in. If you like my taste, the this’ll serve a some recommendations for you. If you don’t like my taste, you’re provably wrong. But by that measure it’ll be mostly things that I have actually enjoyed (since I have a place to complain about things I don’t). I guess I’ll do this every so often.
It’s been a LONG while since I saw an animated show (I won’t make a difference between anime and western, they both are animated cartoons, so shut up, fanboy) where you deeply care about every single character almost from the word go. They’re well rounded and developed. Based on the 2009 game, Persona 4, The Animation it’s a short but engaging series.
If you read my rant blog, you know I’m a fan of Yahtzee Croshaw. And as much enjoyment I get from his Zero Punctuation reviews, his novels are the ones that I hold really high from his work. Jam is a perfectly set apocalypse where they main hazard is something that you usually spread on a piece of toast. Witty and damn funny. And with the previous example, all characters are perfectly well rounded.
I think shooters lost their way thanks to the Call of Duty series by starting out being good, but degenerating in only the developers creating sight-seeing tours of everything they managed to screw the engine with. They are more spectacle than a game. So it’s refreshing to go back to an actual shooter and run around desperate looking for ammo and health before another monster pops out and bashes your knees in. Anyway, DOOM 3 BFG Edition is probably the only thing on this list that I’m actually in the middle of going through instead of being the closest to currently after finishing it.
