Looks like is out before 8:30 or so HG time on Tuesday, which means I was more punctual than WolfQueen was last week. Since she's the one reminding me when I'm horribly late, I do feel very compelled to mention this. Very, very compelled. For purely professional reasons only, of course.

But that's not what you're here for. You want to know who won what. Two of our contributers had two reviews each. Only one will possibly count. Or never know. It just might not be your week. Or it might have been other peoples' weeks. That's the fun and mystery of these things.


THIRD PLACE: Ikari Warriors II: Victory Road (NES) by JoeTheDestroyer

Good bash of a game well deserving of a good bash. The shock and indignation over finding out you were playing a game with a clunky hero, aggressive opponents and one life was very noticeable...especially at the part where you mentioned that later bosses essentially require you to lose a life just to hit them. Good review that shows just how wretched this game is.

SECOND PLACE: Red Faction: Armageddon (XBox 360) by Suskie

Very good review that right away shows off how awesome this Magnet Gun is. Playing Guerrilla, I'm envisioning the carnage I could cause with that thing and really pissed they didn't come up with that idea until now. You also do a good job of covering other pros (alien fighting) and cons ( replacing sandbox with typical shooter stuff). The best thing about this review is that as someone who is playing Guerrilla and hasn't played this, I feel I can make a pretty good comparison between the two just from your review.

OVERDRIVE PLACE: Duke Nukem Forever (PC) by tomchick

And so a game that was delayed forever finally reaches the merely be a crummy dud. As a guy who like DN 3-D, this saddens me a bit. But also amuses me, just because something so long awaited came out to be so unworthy of that. You did a great job of dissecting this in entertaining ways. In particular, the amount of time you put into dissecting various things Duke said. It really tells me just how uninteresting this game is when a couple of random Duke comments get that much scrutiny. Great job.

Time to play something or do something with the rest of my evening. Until the next time!

Blast. Chick will go down one of these days, I swear it. Thanks for the mention!
