    Agitated Distraction

    Lately I've been moody, more so than usual. I don't know why, maybe the tag-team of work and college is starting to get to me a little bit. I have good days and bad days as usual, but I've grown sick ...

    The Middle of Summer 2014

    For the most part we're now about halfway through Summer 2014. The Summer feels like it's been breezing by for me, and that's because this year has been different for me than the last. In 2013 I didn'...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic an Xbox fan tracks me down (bit of a blog) on the Xbox Discussion board.

    Yeah, it's nice to meet people who can hold a mature conversation about games. I know it's rare to find people who like all of the same types of games and for similar reasons, and it's even rarer to...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Thinking of leaving Gamespot? Share your views here. on the Bug Reporting & Feedback board.

    When the website changed blog updates, it kinda hurt a big part of the site's community for me. I used to follow some intelligent gamers who had things to say that were fun and interesting. I still ...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Owning both an Xbox One and a PS4 on the Xbox Discussion board.

    I also owned the PS4 first, and got the XBox One about half a year later. I think XBox has the more appealing exclusives right now, and I feel like they're in a better place direction-wise than the c...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic What are the most memorable tv show openings? on the Off-Topic Discussion board.

    I think opening intros are kind of a lost art in modern television, but I understand that the reason they have gone away is because they take up too much airtime.The best ones are usually openings th...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Should I get an Xbox One? on the Xbox Discussion board.

    Forza 5 is probably decent. You should check out Twitch.tv streams of the game to see if you are interested in it. I guess the Top Gear guys also got in on the game and provided witty commentary. ...

  • Ovirew posted a message in the forum topic Portable XBOX One on the Xbox Discussion board.

    Do you mean like a handheld? ...No. There's problems plaguing the PS Vita and 3DS, and it would just take away more development time from development teams to make more games for this new system.Th...

    I actually enjoyed Super Mario Sunshine more than any of the other '3D' Mario games. It felt like a vast improvement over 64, and I liked the concept of the Fludd pack and the goop you could clean u...
