I hate you, so I'll tell you about a problem 4 hours before the final review deadline.

Kinda stupid for me to rant on about how great writing for HG is in my blog and not enter this, so here I go.

I got a 360 and PC. PC is fairly decent (2.4 dual, 1GB, 8000 series GeForce) and could probably emulate all 2D systems if I had an idea how, lol.

You should all look to your mobile phones for your incoming picks over the weekend

Receiving a call from EmP would be one of those surreal things that defines a period of my existence.

That might well be the oddest typo I'll ever make.

I once called Jason out of the blue. So stranger things have happened.


I don't have to boost my review resume because I have a real resume.

It's hard to find a time when both me and Boo are around long enogh to hash this out, so I'm sorry this is taking longer than we expected.

You should all have your picks now. If you've not, let me know.

Check your HG mails. Let the complaining begin.

About 5 years ago I played maybe a half hour of my game. It was also a port on another console. If this is a problem I'll need another game and if not I'm good to go.

Wow. My game sounds like it doesn't actually suck. I'll get on that tomorrow.

Ooh! Mine's one I played some of a while back and didn't understand what the fuss was about. Will be interesting to force a playthrough and see if it changes my mind.

EmP and Boo got their revenge on me. I got a game over on the first level. :(

I've only got the trial version (XBL) right now. I don't have enough points yet...

I also realise I uninstalled and deleted my game about four days ago, meaning I'll have to download the rather large file all over again.

Will: You have two games put aside. One's pretty good and the other is awful. Depending how late your freeelance review is will decide which you get.

It's not all been hate this year. We've usd it as an excuse to get games we want covered covered and haver interspred this with poetic justice now and then.

Question, EmP. What if the game is so stupid and difficult that I used up all my continues and got a game over on the first fucking level? What do you people see in these games? I'm still playing the trial, so I'm not sure I want to spend 800 points on a game I know I'm gonna hate. >_<

Unless I just review it based on the first level, which is probably as far as I'm ever gonna get with it.

Which bit are you stuck on?

Here's my review of Wolfenstein 3D for the iphone: this game is really old, the iphone controls are awkward but it only cost me £1. 5/10. You guys should have given me Wolfenstein RPG. That would have been a really hateful pick.

I don't know, Doom RPG was actually pretty sick.

I need a new game. I can't get Winter Heat to work in MacMame.

I first got an error saying I needed file epr19730.ic8, so I found the package stvbios.zip and downloaded it. I went to run the ROM again and had the game load and display copyright info, but it must be failing the checks at the beginning, because I don't get to the title screen. The game pauses and I get the error "Window Control Enabled on a Tile Map Plane = 13".

In my experience, emulating arcade games that first appeared on the Saturn has been next to impossible to do accurately (Radiant Silvergun, Die Hard Arcade, etc.) without serious hardware. It has to do with the Saturn's graphics emulation, which has dual custom VDP chips that need to be synced, one that handles sprites/polygons and another that handles background/rotation. Arcade consoles of these games use the same chips. A basic GMA X3100 equipped MacBook just can't emulate that at anything close to an acceptable framerate, if at all.
