(Sleepy Editor’s Note: I have been up for a REAAAALLLY long time, so I apologize if this isn’t as well thought out as it should be. I might look at this tomorrow and do some serious editing work.)
In my mind, there are many similarities between the original Star Wars Trilogy and the Mass Effect trilogy. They share settings and certain themes. They both feature characters that are truly unforgettable and set pieces that are awesome. They both feature impressive character development. They feature fights against overwhelming odds. And last, but not least, the things they have done for their respective industries have had a huge impact. The similarities don’t end there, but I think you all get the picture.
Hey, I’m back from vacation! What did I do? I sat around, ate food, and, oh yeah, read and took notes on over six hundred pages of homework. I’m a BOSS. Ahem, anyway….
I was cruising Steam looking for demos to do for Time With Demos! when my eyes alighted upon the game Chantelise – A Tale of Two Sisters. It looked weird, quirky, possibly terrible, and something I would never normally play. I was going to pass it up, but then I thought to myself, “isn’t the whole point of Time With Demos! to play new and strange titles that are unusual?” Needless to say, after asking myself a rhetorical question I downloaded the demo.
I am just going to talk a little about my time with the Game Informer Online Community. I started way back in 2009 with a post about Fable 2 and some odd notion about being a phantom gamer.... I'm not really sure what that was supposed to mean, but I think I can look back at it now and laugh. At that time I wasn't sure what I wanted my blog to be, and I wasn't really sure that I could even do a blog properly and continue to generate content for it. I struggled for a while. I remember when Andy McNamara accepted my friend request becoming my first friend on here and then left a comment on my wall about my hero image. I was so excited!

If I could paint you a picture of this game I would need only one color: red. Seriously, this game has so much blood coming out of enemies you might start to think that they had been pumped full of grape juice. The combat is bloody, fast, and frantic.
