Title: Oh fudge, this is awesome...!

Wild ARMs 4 actually gives you an option to determine how often character voice clips will play. Hmmm... I can think of a certain game with the word NEO in the title that could have really used this feature...
EDIT: That game also has the words Shining Force in the title, in that exact order. Oh what the hell, it's Shining Force NEO! Me no likey hot stuff coming my way!
EDIT 2: Keanu Reeves is an okay guy; I thought he was funny in Speed, in an unintentional kind of way.

Title: What's this about ripping people off?
Posted: January 15, 2006 (06:18 PM)
This is the first review I ever submitted to Honest Gamers, I think. It was approved by none other than Jason Venter himself! I'm still pretty satisfied with the end result, although I might go back some day and tinker with it a little. I also believe this is my most viewed piece to date, possibly because it's the oldest. This review also deserves some extra kudos for following up my GameFAQs stuff, all of which were crap; man, going back and reading my old GameFAQs stuff is just painful...
Maximo: Ghosts to Glory
Wow, this one's only been viewed about 129 times. Although it wasn't bad, my Maximo pales in comparison to my critique of Kingdom Hearts. Now that I think about it, this could have been my first HG review... it's hard to tell, because I submitted KH and this one on the same day.
Taiko Drum Master
This is my first review that ever got some feedback in the forums. It's short, sweet, and also rather plain. If I were to write this review today, I would probably try have some fun with expressing the drumming aspect of the game.
Resident Evil: Director's Cut
I think this is the first review where I tried to be experimental. Here's the whole idea: the original PSone version of Resident Evil isn't as good as the enhanced Gamecube version; so why play it? Well, I try to answer with the whole "old house" metaphor. I really liked the "evil no longer lives here" line; I think it and the words that followed best summed up my opinion on both versions of RE.
Devil May Cry
I liked the tagline I created for this one; also, the last sentence in the fifth paragraph was doubleplus awesome. (Imagine spending 99% of the game hacking and slashing your opponents when all of a sudden it turns into Star Fox. Great.) The final line of the review is unbearably cheesy, though.
An interesting note about my two April reviews: they got a shit load of hits! Around 430 each, which is a little over half as much as Kingdom Hearts.
I originally scored this game a 9, but I recently kicked up the score to a 10. This review was pretty nice, but I think Shinobi deserves better. I will definitely return to this one in the near future and touch it up!
Can't go wrong with having a Pac-man pun in the tagline, right? This was an all right review, I think. The first paragraph made some good points concerning the task of creating a sequel to Pac-Man (a series that was more or less perfected with Ms.Pac-Man in the 80s), and the writing feels engaging despite a few awkward parts here and there. Also, "Pac-Gimp" is the most awesome made-up word of all time.
Also, Pac-Pix has gotten more views than Shinobi or Devil May Cry, and it's nearly a month older than both; I wonder if is this an indication that more people are reading my reviews over time?
Nintendogs has the special honor of being my first and (as of yet) only RoTW nomination. This review has an interesting twist: the first half reads like a praise review, while the second half takes the tone of a bash. This is easily the best piece I've done for HG to date.
Despite getting a RoTW nomination, Nintendogs only got a measly 252 hits.
Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
This is a solid review. I love how, in the fourth paragraph, I chalk up the Jedi/Sith conflict as "denominatinal differences"; pure gold!
I haven't written many reviews for this site, but I wish to rectify that in 2006. I'm cooking up a mean Mega Man Zero 3, and I might follow that up with either Nightshade or Dragon Quest VIII.
Title: Dungeon of Doom
Posted: January 13, 2006 (04:26 PM)
Dungeon of Doom is this old dungeon crawler game for the Mac (also released under the name "The Dungeon Revealed", apparently.); I used to play it back in middle school, when I dug up the old family Macintosh. It's a cool game, and today I developed the urge to play it. I had to go through hell and back to emulate it, but it was all worthwile! The game is still bitchin'!
Thanks to the power of the internet, I might finally be able to make it to the 40th floor...
Title: 2007: Fail

Title: Reviewer's Block.
Posted: January 06, 2006 (08:35 PM)
I don't know why, but I just can't seem to crank out any reviews recently. Just today I wrote up 700 words for an 8/10 treatment of Nightshade; a few hours later I re-read it and decided the scrap the whole thing. The same thing happened last month, but with Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow.
Does this mean I have to go soul-searching or something? Or is there a less fruity way to get over reviewer's block?
