Now, I was a late comer to the Aliens franchise.  I admit it.  I used to hate scary movies.  Now that that's not the case, I love what Ridley Scott did in 1979, and James Cameron expounded upon 1986.  Those movies did more for science fiction than anything else out there.  I wish I could say the same about Aliens: Colonial Marines...

The Stack of Shame

Within the game journalism community, there's a problem that is affectionately known as the "stack of shame."  It refers to the issue of having so many awesome games to play, but not enough time to play them all.  Sadly, this problem doesn't plague only journalists.  Members of the gaming community can find themselves mired in an ocean of games to play. It's everywhere, and it's starting to turn into an elephant in the room.  But it doesn't have to be like this.

Back from the Grave!!!

So, I've been silent for a while now.  I've been busy with a lot on my plate for a while.  Now that things are slowing down again, I plan to start writing some more!  I have a rant planned for Wednesday, a review of Aliens Colonial Marines within the next week, and a super awesome import review coming up soon!  As always, plan on the "post-anime detour" rant about all the awesome stuff that happened.  That post should be up by the end of April, as the convention runs the 19th through the 21st this year.

Also, I'm going to include some more "nostalgia" reviews in the near future.  Retro games that may be gone, but are certainly not forgotten.  Stay tuned!

It's alive...
