About Abraxmed
I'm participating in the March First Write Off Write Off. I reviewed Golgo 13: Assignment: Kowloon. It's all about the money, or the $75 gift certificate to Best Buy. If you want to read it here's the review: Long Live Sonny Chiba! If you have any pointers leave a comment or drop me an email. BIG NEWS! If you are an avid fan of RPGs this is something you might be interested in if you own a cellphone. Now I'm sure the first though that pops into your mind is what do cellphones and RPGs have in common. Absolutely nothing, until now. Well until not too long from now anyway! Square Enix, the makers of the Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior series, have launched a division that is devotied to cellphone games. They only work for Verizon and AT&T so far, but they might branchout we'll see. They only have a few space shooters availible right now. But they promise to be coming out with some RPGs! I don't know if you are as sad as I am, but it looks like I'll be staying with Verizon. I'll see if I can review the site later, but until then the link is posted under my favorite sites or click on this: SquareEnixMobile! Here is some pictures of what you'll see!

I still can't find a good poetry site. If anyone knows a good site to post poems on please tell me. Until then I will post on here for the Epinions community to ignore! Anyway here they all are in the order they were posted:

The Scent Of Perfume Rings In My Ears(A metaphorical picture of not anting to live in reality.)

Placebo(This one is about my unhealthy obsession with an exgirlfriend and a girl who looked like her.)

Symbol(Another poem about the same ex, I've been told it's sad.)

Within & Silent Tribute (two short poems: one is my usual upbeat introspection and the other is an alternate look at Jesus.)

Back here again(Introspection about being lonely and how I tend to deal with it.)

Solstice(Me contemplating not going to clubs to get drunk and laid.)

Vanguard Angels(My real world friend Katelin said she'd post a personal poem if I did, so this is one of two I found. Believe it or not my seldabsorbed whining I don't find ultra personal, but this one hits me in a few spots that matter. I'm more interested in seeing what she puts up though.)

Everyone's favorite master chief!

My sense of humor is kind of unique, so if you don't like "black humor" you might not like my reviews. I try my best to portray my personality, or lack of one, in my reviews.

If you want to know about my favorite game of all time, well maybe not of all time, but one of them. The Great Unknown In an effort to keep my profile page, some what, new and interesting here are a variety of screenshots for Brigandine. Most are from rpgamer.com, the picture of the box itself is from Atlus.com the publisher of the game. For those sad individuals, like myself, who are awaiting the sequel to this great game, keep waiting. I've pestered Atlus about it numerous times, and finally they got back to me. It's up to the Japanese developers and Atlus doesn't know a thing. Atlus also no longer owns the rights to the Tactics Ogre series. It seems like my favorite company is going down hill. Anyway here are pictures of Brigandine.

My most successful reviews: A Man's Guide To Massage Oil, some how it recieve a bunch of nonmember hits. My review with the most member hits, and gave me a little over $5, is Defnatlie Fustratng my review on Scrabble. Those are my old reviews, I took over a two year break in writing on here. My most popular new reviews are: A late night companion, my review on Hennessy(I love that stuff!(this one was a surprise, didn't think so many people cared), and Daddy No! a review on the Xbox, which have the most nonmember hits, and Yes, I was a D&D nerd in High School., a review on the adventure module for basic Dungeons & Dragons, which has the most member hits. It's funny how the reviews you don't think anyone will care about sometimes get the most hits.

How I rate. Ummmm, yeah. I don't know. I don't have some science to it and I'm not going to lie and say I do. If I know next to nothing about the product you are going to have a better chance of getting a Very Helpful. If the review is really long and I don't feel like reading all of it you are probably going to get a VH. If I know about the product and think you left something important out than I'll give a Helpful. I usually leave a comment about what was left out. Somewhat Helpful is for reviews that barely give any information. I don't usually give Not Helpfuls. As long as there is some information on the product I give a SH. You have to be completely off base to get the NH. Off Topics are for off topic reviews. I think I may have given maybe two of these total.

Web Of Trust. AKA the popularity hierarchy of Epinions. I find it has little to do with trust and much to do with who is cool. I put few different types of people on mine. If you read a lot of my reviews you are probably going to find yourself on it eventually. I know that's not what it is supposed to be for, but I don't really care. If I like your personality you'll find yourself on it very quickly. If you are funny or sexually free in your reviews I'll probably like you. Finally, if you review stuff really well, and I actually trust your opinions, than I'll will trust you.

What Pulp Fiction Character Are You? .

An Elvis man, you like you women dangerous and your steaks bloody. You often get wrapped up in landscapes and fail to realize the danger you put yourself into. Don't get cocky, and don't get caught. It might be good to lay off the drugs every once in a while. Just a suggestion.

Boromir

Boromir

If I were a character in The Lord of the Rings, I would be Boromir, Man of Gondor, proud heir to the Steward Denethor II, and elder brother of Faramir.

In the movie, I am played by Sean Bean.

You are 15% geek
OK, so maybe you ain't a geek. You do, at least, show a bit of interest in the world around you. Either that, or you have enough of a sense of humor to pick some of the sillier answers on the test. Regardless, you're probably a pretty nifty, well-rounded person who gets along fine with people and can chat with just about anyone without fear of looking stupid or foolish or overly concerned with minutiae. God, I hate you.
