I've been playing my game along with others. Just sort of meandering along at my own pace.

A friend of mine who's moved out of state is back for a week, so I haven't had time to do much of anything gaming-related the past few days, as I've been hanging out and partying with him for the last four nights.

Yeah I've played mine a bit.

When are these due anyway, fix killer?

Man, just over a week left and I haven't played more than twenty minutes of my game.

This has definitely been one of the hardest reviews of my career. I'm taking the opportunity to try out some things and see how they hold up "in court," so to speak. I've gone all over the place with this one, though. Originally I wrote it as a recipe. Yeah, recipe format for a review. It was meant to be all clever and shit... and it was!

But I wasn't satisfied.

The thing that keeps throwing me is that I actually think my game is a good game to the right crowd. I really want to speak out to that crowd and I'm trying to decide the best way to do it. The problem is I'm definitely NOT a member of that crowd, so I'm trying to figure out the best angle.

There. My "progress blog" for the night.

Going to have to retire from this tournament unfortunately, due to external circumstances. I've moved to uni and have no TV, and have no computer (thought I would've had one sooner) making matters awkward somewhat. When I'm back in the biz with a dazzling laptop though, I'll be back on HG!

I should be able to finish the game this weekend but will be gone Monday to Thursday. I'm definitely going to try to get something done but it will be an 11PM Friday night job.

Well, mine has finally reached adulthood and is preparing to enter the scary world of fellow reviews. I should have the full draft done tomorrow night with a planned final release on Sunday night.

Man what happened to the fun in reviewing? Two years ago, I used to be able to shit talk half these goons and get some real competition. Now they're coming to tournaments with skirts and play Tetris on the toilet. What happened?

If I can review my game based on the trial only, I will. It's like one fifth of the game, and since I don't like level 1, I doubt I'm gonna like the rest of the levels. I also feel I might be missing the true essence of the game by not having anyone to play co-op, as is usually the case in the arcade version.

Would it help FFM if I pointed out that you need to actually provide competition in order to get it out of other people?

you're definitely missing out on the game, Jerec. maybe you'll still hate it, but the first level isn't the best (I still like it!) and besides, there are tons of games I haven't dug at first.

it would also probably hurt your review. just probably, but probably.


Oh no, it's a Goomba!

Since I don't have enough to form a full review, I'm just gonna give it a mini review.

Metal Slug 3 (XBLA)

It's dreadful, but it's quite short.

Run, shoot, die, repeat. Blast mutant crabs and foot soldiers, and trucks and stuff. Rescue the numerous Castaway Mel Gibsons Tom Hanks's and then die a few more times. Collect some powerups but then lose them when you die again. Replay the first level if you want to take an alternate path under the sea where you battle subs and fish and whatever else.

If you want to play a few more levels which are probably much the same, then sure, spend 800 points to unlock the trial. That is, if you're into this sort of thing. I'm not.

5/10

I've actually finished Metal Slug 3. Of course, on a game with unlimited lives/continues, how could I not have?

Working hard on my assignment - I was already familiar with the game but never played it past the first hour, so yesterday I played the first hour. Now to see if I can tear myself loose from WoW long enough to play some more.

I think I've got off really lucky with my game. Like, its not that good, but I don't think its as bad as what some of you have been handed.

Also Radical; I read your blog ont' topic of the recruitment scam you fell into. Spectacular stuff, and I've been through something very similar.

I have to bow out -- at this point, my game is way too long to finish in time. I kind of blew my weekends on other stuff lately.

Alright, alright, it's almost ready. I've changed my mind on this one more times than I care to count. It must be all that Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 I'm playing... damn Civil War and its constant switching of sides.

Metal Slug 3's an awesome game.

I think this and Dead Space were the longest reviews I've written, in terms of time taken to write them.
