Note of interest: back in the day, I drew Y in an alphaolympics and this was the game I had originally earmarked to review. However, the game overwhelmed me with dullness and I switched to Ys III. It would transpire that I would go on to win that event by the slimmest of margins. The unfortunate writer to miss out? Poor Rob himself. True story.

After reading this, I now change my score from "5" to "1", as this game is now my most hated of all time, as its presence led to my greatest victory being nulled.

Maybe, over the summer, we'll have another crack at putting an Olympics together. I'll even judge to give you glory-starved whippersnappers a fair roll at victory.

To be on topic, I do like this review though. All I managed to produce was a few eye rolls then moving on to glory. The whole fat shaming angle did make me laugh. The self esteem line was golden. In a gesture of goodwill, I have centered the screens in hopes that you had purposefully left them uncentered.


For us. For them. For you.

Thank ye, thank ye. I think, a lot of the time, I have more fun writing reviews of games like this than more legitimate titles. Like, EvilQuest, for example. It was a fun game, but it really didn't inspire me, so it took a bit of thought and pondering over how to phrase things. With this review, I just pounded it out and then looked it over the next day before sending it off to Jason.

Just give me a goofy premise or something to laugh about and/or want to mutilate myself (ie: my upcoming-in-the-next-couple-weeks N.T. Burning Heroes (Super Fam) review) and I'm gold!

I probably should look at how you centered the screens. I'm borderline flatscan when it comes to HTML, so I just cut and paste links and hope for the best!
