There's a bit of discussion in the mod forum as to whether or not you are made up of luck. :)
coolbeans  +   1211d ago
Haha, happy to see I can cause discussion like that. XD

I'll have to borrow a fitting quote by Thomas Jefferson for my official stance on the term "luck," and me being made of it:

"I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it."

Wow, I can't believe my blogs were good enough to win. :) Thank you to everyone that voted for my blogs. I hope that I will be able to continue bringing blog content that will be enjoyable or informative for everyone to read, even if it does ruffle some feathers.

Thanks again.

Woah can't believe you guys thought my review was that good, it's the first one I felt I wrote a bit more freely on and actually had fun writing so many thanks guys and congrats to everyone else! :D
HonestDragon  +   1210d ago
Congrats, Nate-Dog! Yeah, your review was awesome. I have been curious about Lost Odyssey for a good while now. I was just unsure over whether to go for it or not. Now that I read a well thought, well written review, I'm really considering it. Congrats, again! \m/^-^\m/
coolbeans  +   1210d ago
Told you (in forums) you should try posting here!

The only thing I'm angry about after reading the review is my hype on re-purchasing going up. I want to buy it now, but I have so many sp games to burn through in my back library!

Thanks, Dog. >:(
HonestDragon  +   1210d ago
Perhaps it could be a game to look forward to after you're done backtracking on the other games? I'm currently doing that now with a few games until The Last Story and the Ratchet and Clank collection come out this month.
Nate-Dog  +   1210d ago
I'd agree with HonestDragon, Lost Odyssey is one of the games that I have been planning to get out of a large bunch that I have missed out on this gen (and some of last gen). At the moment I still have Final Fantasy IV on PSP, ICO/SoTC Collection (which just arrived today) and Tales of Vesperia to play but I'm replaying MGS4 and GTA IV The Ballad of Gay Tony too at the moment so I already feel a bit full on games but hey you can always just get it and keep it there when there's less games out.

I'd start ICO (I WANT to) but I'm not someone that can play more than 2 games at a time, heck I don't even like playing more than one but there's tons I've been pushing to get done this year. I've finished Alan Wake, Deus Ex:HR, The Witcher II, Dark Souls and Portal 2 all so far this year (which is a lot for me especially considering most of them were fairly new at the time bar Alan Wake) and still want more, so selfish. :P

I espescially enjoyed sephris' blog concerning gaming and the impaired. Very inspirational.

One thing I've preached all my life(exaggerating) is the length of a blog is not equatable to its respective quality. People here in particular write blogs and reviews that are way too long. I've seen others critique user-written works in that they should be written like persuasive essays. That is entirely wrong. What's more, if you look at a lot of articles, with the exception of some horribly boring opinion pieces, they are succinct. However, the brevity of a written work is not explicitly
the point I'm trying to make. Conciseness, brief but comprehensive, is an idea few seem to grasp.

SeekDev  +   1211d ago
Every blog I write, I seem to stop at about 500-600 words without being able to add much more, by that point I feel I've gotten my message across.

Congrats to all who won, you did good, even if a computer was the cause of your winning ;)
unkn0wn  +   1211d ago
Yeah, I've read yours, the site is not without exception, and I appreciate your writing.
HonestDragon  +   1210d ago
Well, when I woke up this morning I didn't know I was going to be greeted with a message saying I'm one of the winners of the July contest.

Thank you all for reading my blogs and reviews! I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do writing them. There's more to come soon. Congratulations to all of the winners!

Stay cool N4G! *internet high fives back*
