I got God Hand, which is evidently completely awesome.

That it is. Totally and completely awesome. You should be happy. It's also totally hard. I did finish it, but that's because I am, again, like the game, totally awesome.

I just couldn't think of anything to say about Wolfenstein 3D. That's my excuse.

Lol at getting Godhand. They apparently don't hate you very much, probably because you carried Boo in the TT!

I was proud of your pick, Woodhouse. I was curious how you'd actually take to that game. same with Schultz and Contra. it's not like we'd be nice enough to give God Hand to somebody who hasn't reviewed Wii Cheer!

my results are done, but I'm hanging onto them until I get home from work so that I can give them another once-over.


Oh no, it's a Goomba!

And it's not like they picked a bad game for me, either. It's probably a fairly good game. Just one that I didn't particularly like. And it's probably only because of the way I judged a certain Metal Slug review matchup in the TT.

I had Around the World in 80 Days for the GBA, probably partly because I had to review another movie tie-in the year before.

I don't why I was given Warhawk. Maybe because of the terrible live action sequences that they were sure would offend my film making side.

I was curious how you'd actually take to that game.

Figured that. I did actually play the first 2 sublevels (and a bit of 1-3), and while I certainly appreciate bashing fatties with a 2 x 4 (12 x 48?), it took me forever cause I was awful. Maybe a little more exposition on Gene would've spurred me on; if there was any opening sequence I accidently skipped it. Perhaps I'll give it another try after We Cheer 2.

"they're still sexier than you are" is all the exposition you need!

Sorry kids; I wanted to do it all over last weekend because this week is crazy busy for me. I've started but unless I find the energy somewhere to sit up a portion of the night, it'll be tomorrow now.

Godhand is a game everyone should play and review. But then there will come a day when all that can be said about Godhand will be said and people will hate reading Godhand reviews thereafter.

I will play and review Godhand someday, because Radicaldreamer asked me to. I hope that day comes before the world is tired of reading Godhand reviews.*

* this day may or may not occur before or after the day I review Utawarerumono (PS2 version) for EmP

Hey Emp, did you ever get around to sending out the reasons WHY our games were chosen? I'm still curious to see the psychology behind the whole event.

I think I started to write something up, but the complete lack of interest in the event never made me really want to put it at the top of my list. Now, I don't really remember. In your case, I think I wanted to give you something well out of your comfort zone while at the same time, giving you the chance to record a review of note. Warhawk is a game that was released back in the days when I was selling video games as a living and, while it had its share of haters, it also had a very vocal core group who loved it. It's also a game with little review coverage on the 'net, so I bullied you into relevance.

Few of the picks had this much thought thrown into them. A lot were about taking people out of their comfort zone (See: Woodhouse and Godhand) and others were about aiming kicks at our friends (See: DoI getting Quake every year from now until forever). Some were based on awful puns, some simply on games we'd like to see covered.

I guess it's a mixed bag of reasons, but actually getting together and picking the games is something that took literally hours. Even if you absolve the time dedicated to groin-kicking Doom 3 that occurs every EmP/Boo colab ever. Which is why it felt like a huge slap in the face when maybe 10% of the people bothered to show.

90 people signed up? That's impressive.

Yeah, EmP, that is too bad. It seems to be the way of most tournaments. A lot of hype and then very little turn out. Thanks for taking the time to hold it, though! I learned a lot writing that review, so your tactic worked!

It is unfortunate more people didn't--I can shoulder part of the blame, as I thought your choice for me was good (I forget which Contra) as a change of pace from what I usually do.

I wound up not making the time, but I may wind up playing the game anyway. Don't know if I have the right mentality for this sort of tournament. I have a list of games I always wanted to play, and someone suggesting game X reminds me of horrendously retro game Y I never played but wanted to, and I just go on a tangent for that first. I'm bad at following orders. Ok, I'm good enough to keep my job, but I'd probably be less botherd without the whole decent-paycheck deal.

I'd be interested in a list of who got what, even the people who didn't complete their reviews.
