  • State of the Gaming -- February 2007

    List of games I'm planning (or want) to play: Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney (NDS -- In progress) Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin (NDS) Phoenix Wright, Justice for All (NDS) Final Fantasy VI Advance (GBA) Everything on the Top 20 Indie Adventure Games list.

  • Should I Go Across The World?

    I've been asked if I would be willing to be temporarily posted in another country, halfway across the world, for around half a year. On the surface, it seems like a good idea -- I don't have any definite plans for the next few months, so there's nothing in the way. It would be new stuff, new places, people, experiences, etc., a most welcome change of pace. But the first emotion that grips me is fear. Of the unknown I suppose.
