Following in the footsteps of many of friends from the site, I won't be coming to GameSpot much any more. Honestly, the site just isn't what it used to be. Not even close to the quality it had 3 - 4 years ago. Sure, it looks sleeker, but it's all flash and no substance. I could turn this into a rant about GS blog, but that's not the purpose of it. I'd like to thank you guys for posting on my blog over the years and for taking an interest in what I had to say. I know I haven't commented much in return recently, but I just haven't been around very often. It's been great meeting you all and reading your blogs. This isn't a permanent goodbye. I will still occasionally visit the site to check something on a game or read one of your blogs, but I won't be here frequently and I won't be blogging. I will, however, be hanging around a lot over at my new reviewing jobs site: RPGFan. Check it out if you guys are some spare time or are bored. Especially if you're into RPGs, niche games or indie titles. My review for Tales of Hearts and Narcissu are up now too. Feel free to have a read! Finally, if you're interested in keeping up-to-date with what I'm playing, I've joined Backloggery (a website for logging the games you have bought but haven't yet completed) and you can find my profile by clicking here. I've also added my mini-profile to the top of my blog. That way it will keep updating even after I've gone. If you use this site too, feel free to add me as a friend. Best of luck to you all and I'll see you on the flip side. ~ Andrew
By request from my last blog, I am now letting you know the review is up! It can be found here. (Link at the bottom) I know Hanzoadam will not be pleased with the scoring... :)
Recently got my hands on it as part of my new reviewing gig! I don't have high hopes for an Idea Factory title... I've played a few hours and it's kind of fun, but a little lacking depth, but we shall see! For those of you interested my Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World review is now up too! Yes, it did suck. I am currently working on reviews for both Trinity Universe, Tales of Hearts and Narcissu. Those to come soon!
That is all.
I applied for a job at RPGFan just over a month ago. I recently got the job as a review contributor! Which I was very excited about. After working on my first review it has finally been posted online! It's a review on the re-release of 'The Legend of Zelda' on the GameBoy Advance and Wii Virtual Console. You can find the review by clicking here: http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/The_Legend_of_Zelda_VC/index.html. You can also see my staff page here: http://www.rpgfan.com/staff/andrew.html I know at least a couple of you regularly visit the site. Any of you read reviews there before?

That's right! I will be on holidays in Japan next week! I'll be spending 9 days in Tokyo, 4 days in Kyoto and 2 in Osaka. I can't wait! I've been saving for this for ages :P I will also definitely post photos here when I return! Look forward to it! If you have any requests for photos, let me know! I may also try to bring back some little goodies to mail out to you guys. I'll see how I go!
Finally got my PSN account set up with internet. For some reason (which involves a long story I can't be bothered to tell) I had to create a new account on my PS3 with it so I lost my previous trophies. Anyway, if you have PS3 please add me! My PSN ID is: FlamingR1ft Just make sure to tell me who you are in the invitation! :D
