  • KOTOR = Evil timesink

    I hate KOTOR. Not because it’s a bad game, in fact it’s the exact opposite. It’s a fantastic game. With the unfortunate side effect that everything else gets pushed back so I cam play some more. This was actually the first time I’d done some serious ‘net surfing since I borrowed David’s KOTOR copy. Here’s my take on it in a post to RPG-Skies: This game is fantastic! I borrowed my friend’s copy after he finished it, so I only started it last week, but it’s already eaten up a lot of my (non-work) time.

  • Revolutions

    So I saw Matrix: Revolutions last Friday. Nice movie, entertaining to watch, but it’s not as deep as you’d expect, and the Matrix trilogy really ends not with a bang but with a whisper. I like this review, it analyzes things very well. I feel like quitting Warcraft III for a while — maybe a couple of weeks. I’m not really getting any better at it, and I’m a bit bored with it now.

  • The Recruit

    Good plot twists you could see from a mile away. Unfortunately, we had arrived at the theater too late to catch the start of the last showing of Gangs of New York, so we had to settle with the second choice. The Recruit didn’t get as much critical acclaim as Gangs, but what the heck, Al Pacino in a spy thriller? How could I lose? The story is simple enough. Colin Farell plays James Clayton, a young man just out of MIT, recruited by CIA agent William Burke (Pacino).

  • The Bourne Identity A new action hero is Bourne I was a bit anxious to see this movie, as I had thoroughly enjoyed the book of the same name a long time ago, and I was hoping the movie would give me the same satisfaction. The Bourne Identity stars Matt Damon as rogue CIA agent/amnesiac Jason Bourne. In his quest to uncover his own identity, Jason travels all around Europe pursued by the CIA’s agents and dragging along an innocent gypsy girl who just happened to be his best shot for a ride to Paris.

  • 07 Jan 2002

    For some reason, I keep wanting to update this site. I’m actually doing this more often than studying for the board, studying game development, studying Japanese or writing anything else. I wonder why? Anyway, I added a humor page and a special “Who Am I?” page. Check ‘em out. Also the Anime ROMs site should be fully operational by now. So I went and saw Lord of the Rings last Friday.
