Title: Just missed it. Posted: April 16, 2006 (11:38 AM)
I didn't submit any reviews last week, though I had intended to. I was going to dedicate some time to review writing on Saturday, but two things came to my attention: 1) Mission:Impossible just got released as a Special Edition about four days ago, and 2) each M:I SE comes with a free ticket to the forthcoming third movie.
The first DVD by itself cost $12, but it also came bundled with the terrible second movie in a special "Collector's Set" for $17. Hey, M:I2 might suck, but I'd rather spend $17 and get two movies than spend $12 for just one film. So I bought both and spent the rest of the night watching the two Missions back-to-back, which elimated any remaining time I had to write a review for the week.
I will make up for this by writing two reviews this week.
Title: Rewind NES games! Posted: April 10, 2006 (09:36 PM)
I downloaded the latest version of Nestopia today and noticed that it has a new feature: rewind! It's like the move from Prince of Persia: if you make a mistake or something, you can "rewind" the action and undo it!
Accidentally picked up the stupid dagger in Castlevania? You can rewind time and stop yourself from ever picking it up!
Did you bump into some stupid goon by accident in Contra and lose your awesome Spread shot? Just Rewind time and pretend like it never happened!
Now there's something the virtual console can't compete with.
Title: The HG Twilight Zone. Posted: March 09, 2006 (11:44 AM)
Something strange happened today when I logged into Honest Gamers. I did the usual stuff (type in my name/password, etc.), and when I went to check my blog I wound up in... the HG twilight zone. In this pseudo parallel universe, my blog's design reverted to "generic". I found that my HG mail had 45 letters from various site contributors. They all were all titled something along the lines of "Could you please proof-read this review for me?" or "I was too lazy to give this a title". The wierd part was that when I opened them... THEY WERE ALL EMPTY!
I managed to get myself out of the HG twilight zone by logging out and then logging back in... but man was that wierd.
I know this is the GBA and everything, but you'd think they'd kind of, I dunno, upgrade the graphics a little. Last a checked, there has been more than a decade worth of progress in the field of pixel art.
And they're saying this thing's due for April? By the looks of it, they could have easily pumped out this dribble out a year ago.
