Holy shit. An entertaining Metal Slug review. And one that has a deeper message about the nature of video games. Nice!

I have seen the light. No longer will I try to convince myself that I enjoy these repetitive games.

I'm happy to see Jerec writing new reviews. But this isn't a review! The choice argument rambles. It's like this could have been a rant on abortion, with choices and all, but you talk about how you (didn't) play a video game instead. Jerec, you should review Fable 2 next. We know you played that one.


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

It's only because Boo and EmP hate me. They got their revenge. Because I had only about 200 words or less to say about the first level of the game (because I refused to waste 800 points on a game I knew I wouldn't enjoy). I had to pad it out with that lame choice stuff, trying to be deep and meaningful in a review. Hell, I wish I'd written this for that pretentious comp a while back.

Anyway, I'll take the review down after BWHY is done and judged, and it'll have a spot on my blog.

See, I think it's totally a fine review. After all, Jerec is speaking to his audience, here. We know what Metal Slug plays like, so does anyone who's picking up the game off XBLA. He's just taking a different approach to the whole thing. It's definitely not BAD. It doesn't need to be removed!

I agree with Jerec that this would be better as a blog entry.
