Reviewer and FAQ writer. Productivity tends to be on the low side, but I'm an old hand, having been initially on GameFAQs and now both there and here long enough for most people to believe I've been around since the dawn of time. I'm also Dutch, I write software, and I'm something of an old school gamer with a nostalgic focus on the Commodore 64.
Title: Review forming in my head... Posted: July 16, 2009 (01:34 AM)
With any luck, I'll get it out of there in time to enter it into the TT. The subject is Hotel Dusk, and the verdict is significant disappointment.
Which seems to be perfectly in line with the reviews already up on the site, but it's just something that needs to be said.

Negative reviews are always more fun to write, aren't they?

It depends. When a game totally deserves its spanking then yes, it is satisfying to stomp it into the ground.
When a game could have been so much better, had some excellent ingredients but squanders them the way Hotel Dusk did, it's just painful. The old feeling of wanting to love a game but it won't let you.

A negative review of should'ves and could'ves and "why didn't they just" can be very tough to write but it can clarify what we want/don't want...
BTW I didn't realize you had a DS. I read your Impossible Mission review and realize that's a game I want to finish too, finally--probably with save states, though.
