Brief Game Progress 2/25
February 25, 2016

Clicker Heroes- Ascended, building up, waiting to ascend again. I should be there soon.

Joe & Mac (NES)- Played through the game. Man alive, did it take more effort than it was worth. I plan to start the review for this tonight, and it's not going to fare to well. I would like to play the SNES version to see how it compares. The 8-bit edition is pretty rough. I would almost say "lazily made," except the graphics are quite good for an NES title.

Year Walk- Played through this as well. I found it to be one of those games that ends with a light shrug. On the bright side, it's a bit spooky. Unfortunately, the bulk of the campaign consists of chasing a key. Review forthcoming.

Legacy of the Wizard- Got far with Xemn, and then fell into a trap full of spikes, all thanks to a false floor I couldn't possibly have known about. I died and now must begin anew with Xemn.

Zombeer- Checked this game out after buying it. It's pretty much a first-person shooter loaded with cheesy college humor, zombies and arbitrary pop culture references. Your character has been bitten, but can stave off "zombification" by drinking beer. Last things I did were grab a nail gun, complete a puzzle involving a jet turbine, and watch someone get squashed by a safe.

Joe and Mac was one of the very last NES titles featured in Nintendo Power as that old system finally died and all you could find thereafter were SNES and Game Boy reviews. Dark, dark times...

You can't even give me the ILLUSION that I have a shot of winning the Alpha Marathon this year, huh?

I figured I'd try a little harder this year. But then EmP might pull out a surprise attack of reviews and destroy us all.

WELL GEE

GUESS I HAVE NO REASON TO KEEP CONTRIBUTING REVIEWS IF IT'S A LOST CAUSE

No need to suspect me. Nothing in my plans but S's and D's.

Carry on. Nothing to fear from this side of the pond.

My main goal this year is just to finish the dang thing. I can't remember for sure if I've ever managed to do that. I don't think I have. And hey, maybe I'll even try to win it. I do feel like I'm still in the running. My stream of reviews slowed down a bit because I was playing a second A game that I reviewed elsewhere to meet an obligation that went way back. That took a ton of time and derailed things a bit, but I should be filling out H here soon... and maybe more letters to boot. Of course, I'm also nearing the end of another college term, so that will slow me for a few weeks.

I'd like to finish as well, which is why I've put some of my lengthier projects (Risen 3, mainly) on hold.
