overdrive Welcome to my blog. Here, you may read all of my reviews. That will take a good deal of time, as I have penned quite a large number of them. I advise you to start now. And don't forget, constantly offer me praise concerning how great I am at doing what I do!

A = Airlock

Another letter down and, in the process, I earned a new Felix Achievement Level. You see, every once in a while, Felix gives me a challenge (sometimes with a horrid threat enclosed with said challenge to keep me on task) and he recently gave me one to write a review for an Atari 2600 game. So, here it is. Dredged up a lot of bad memories, it did.

As a fun side note for me, I was looking up the correct spelling for the plural of torpedo because I couldn't remember if it was "s" or "es", so I typed in "torpedo dictionary" into Google and one of the first results I got was for a site called sex-lexis.com with the term "playing tag with the pink torpedo", which is used for male masturbation. After "self-reprimanding" myself for making a comment about such a horrid act on this site, I have to admit, getting this as part of my search made me laugh.

Good work, Rob, though I'm marginally disappointed that you didn't include any prose over how your avatar in Airlock sounds like he's on a perpetual static buzz when he scoots around the sub.

Mainly because it's been so long since I've played that game that I could only remember that the running around sound effect was annoying to the "mute TV" level, but not how it was annoying. But now that you mentioned it, I can actually hear that sound in my head right now.

I really can't thank you for that....

It's certainly one of the most memorable sound effects ever, though not for a good reason.
