Didn't I just write this topic a few minutes ago? You know, about an ROTW that only had one entrant, and it happened to be OD?

Oh, you may have noticed I'm not doing these back issues in sequential order. I decided to knock this one out right away since it only has one review assigned to it. I also have other things to do tonight, so don't expect the other three to crop up right away.

Anyway, OD tackled Gradius: The Interstellar Assault, which is apparently one of the few Game Boy shmups that isn't mediocre.

This review positively drips passion, and really makes the game sound exciting. Portions of it were thrilling to read about, and left me wanting to either read further to see what other details you would dish or perhaps even play the game (or just watch it on YouTube, since I suck at shmups). Basically, most of the rest of my comments would just be rehash from what I said about the R&C review a few minutes go: it gives an overview of the campaign and offers delightful tidbits without spoiling everything.

The only thing my milkshake brings to the yard is a subpoena.
