Jerec: gut it out! I'm pretty sure the full game gives you unlimited continues, and me & Boo deserve this!

Janus: The RPG was what I wanted to give you. Boo pushed hard for what you got.

Leroux: I'll HGMail you something new shortly. Remind me what you can play?

Anything I can emulate, which still includes most arcade titles as well as the usual 8 through 16 bit consoles and portables (registered version of MagicEngine, so I can do TG16 too). I can probably emulate most esoteric platforms, like Atari 5200 or MSX, if you want to get fancy. Anything N64 I own works, and I might be willing to spend there for the right title to write about.

Everyone should now have titles to review. Again, the quicker you let us know of issues, the quicker I can try and solve them.

Deadline looks to be early/mid October. I'll make a note when it's finalised.

So I decided to check my new pick. From Wikipedia:

Last Legion UX is a platform game for the Nintendo 64. It was released only in Japan in 1999.

I don't live in Japan, have a JP N64 or know any Japanese. You know this. Come on.

I'm no longer willing to spend. It'd be silly to waste money for people that don't research the game they pick for someone at all.

Can't you emulate that?

I've kinda been playing Skies of Arcadia Legends instead of my BWHY game, heh.

According to bbitmaster on Youtube:

"Here is another Last Legion UX video. As I said before, this game is unemulated, and so the only way to play it is to import it, or to get a backup device."

N64 ROMs are widely available, but most of them are unplayable/work on select emulators due to hardware. That's why I said 8 and 16-bit consoles for what I'd be willing to emulate. I'm not trying nine different N64 emulators to make sure it doesn't work on all of them after the first hassle and after seeing a testimonial it won't.

I've also never played Armored Core style games, so English would be a big help in understanding them. Otherwise I'm awfully prone to saying something ignorant.

I'll withdraw if I'm going to get a hard time about this. I can't enter anything around here without a headache.

Emp, seems i can muck around with the difficulty and continues on the trial version. But basically if I unlock this, it's just gonna be me running, shooting and dying my way to the end. I hear it's not a long game, either. I can just imagine the tagline for my upcoming review. "It's dreadful, but it's quite short."

Jesus guys. Looking at some of your responses I feel I got off easy.

Still, strategies from the early 90s are not known for their longevity and I'm actually running out of stuff to write about it.

As much as y'all are complaining, I'm sure that my game was the meanest pick of all. Prepare to be stunned when you all find out what I was assigned.

I downloaded the emulator and ROM for my game. This is the farthest I've gotten in a reviewing contest in a long time.

I already finished writing my review a few days ago. I'm just too lazy to proofread it.

Didn't you get Chrono Trigger, Zig?

In any case, my review is... prepared. By which I mean I know how I want to write it and that I want to keep it fairly short. I even have an open document with some text. So... next week?

Sure I've been wanting to write for a while. PS1 and before. I don't like to emulate Xbox and crap.

and why is this despicable human pile of feces bluberry still roaming these forums?

Also, I bet I can come back from the glory days of retirement and bury this Golding character. Bets on Marc. You, me, Fatness, that odd Aussie guy that works in the biology labb, Andrew 'The Apple' Schultz, and this old perv zig are goign to have a ball out in this tournament. I'm bringing the thesaurus; you just bring the old scrolls from Shionbi 1.

Out of curiosity, is anyone done with their reviews yet or getting close? I'm nearly done with mine and I'm debating whether to post it this week or hold off for a bit.
