I'm a big stupid copycat!!!!!!!
January 02, 2007

Anyway, here's my list of reviews taken directly from that link Venter put in his blog. That means you WON'T be getting the date I did them or the actual links to them (because I'm in my usual lazy mood), but out of the kindness of my heart, I shall bestow comments on them to you on ALL 43 of them!

Karnov (NES) — seems I might have been either struggling with or coming out of my writer's block of early '06 with this one.

GG Aleste (Game Gear) — I honestly can't remember anything about this review.

Final Fantasy III (NES) — fun review for a fun, hard-hitting RPG. I was proud of this one.

Legend of Hero Tonma (TurboGrafx-16) — I seem to recall getting some positive comments on my comparison of this Irem platform game to their shooters.

Addams Family Values (Super Nintendo) — One of those that just didn't live up to expectations. I was envisioning a great bash review, but it just didn't turn out that way.

Bonk's Adventure (TurboGrafx-16) — Fun, if generic, review of a great platformer.

Traysia (Genesis) — Zig knows how much I loved playing this game. I did good with my review, but probably could have done better, as with Addams Family Values. Unfortunately, my proposed 10/10 joke review I was planning to write for GFaqs didn't come out in 2006.....but this is a new year.....

Zunou Senkan Galg (NES) — Another game Zig had the pleasure of reading my AIM rants on. Venter did a good job of critiquing this one so my comedy bits didn't get too over-the-top and this turned out to be one of my better reviews of the year (IMO).

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Super Nintendo) — Pretty generic. Seems like the more familiar I am with a game, the more I struggle to write about it. I'm a lot better just picking up a new game, playing it and cranking out something than writing for a game I'd beaten a number of times before even contemplating writing about it.

Final Soldier (TurboGrafx-16) — Blah Brevity or Busts review. I just haven't gotten the knack of writing a good tiny review.

Fire Emblem (Game Boy Advance) — I loved writing this one. Gotta play a couple more FE games to try to out-do this one.

Suikoden III (PlayStation 2) — Another review I had fun writing. After figuring out my angle, it practically wrote itself.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (PlayStation 2) — Kind of unfocused, since I tried to mention all 100 extra things in this game.

Monster Party (NES) — Very fun gimmick review. Might not have been my best of the year, but it was a blast to write.

Medal of Honor (PlayStation) — One of my favorite intros I've done (talking about how useful Nazis are as movie villains because of how they're REAL-LIFE BAD GUYS!).

X-Multiply (Arcade) — Not too memorable.

Faxanadu (NES) — I seem to recall liking this one, but it didn't really stand out in my mind as a classic.

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out! (NES) — The better of my two sports game reviews for one of the KoR competitions.

Formula One: Built to Win (NES) — The lesser of the two — just didn't have the same zeal for this one.

Shining Force (Genesis) — Running out of generic comments to say....

Metal Saga (PlayStation 2) — I kinda liked this one. I thought I did a good job explaining how the game had promise, but was let down by a total lack of structure.

Sagaia (Genesis) — One of my reviews for a sectioned-review KoR competition. I think my headers were probably the only witty part of this one.

Plok (Super Nintendo) — One of those reviews where I tried my hardest to get something up for a game that didn't motivate me to write much of anything.

Totally Rad (NES) — This review bludgeoned EmP in a GFaqs bash review tournament. Go OD!

The 7th Saga (Super Nintendo) — This review won the KoR sectioned review competition. Go OD, again!

Task Force Harrier EX (Genesis) — Bland and short......just how I like them. Well, maybe it wasn't bland, but it didn't stick out in my mind.

Super C (NES) — Another one that didn't really stand out in my mind as one of my better ones.

Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (NES) — And this is where I choked hard against Zig in the STT......

The Suffering (PlayStation 2) — I had fun with this one. This is the sort of game that always is capable of motivating me to write something.

Exile (Genesis) — This review beat EmP in the final regular season round of the STT, allowing me to salvage some dignity. Go OD!

Power Strike II (Game Gear) — Guhh.....at least I thought it was funny......

Wild Arms 3 (PlayStation 2) — One of my finest efforts. If not for chicanery behind the scenes by EmP (not proven yet, but it's only a matter of time), this would have won the ABCs. Instead, it only got second after the tiebreaker. CURSE YOU, YOU BASTARD!!!!!!!

Rule of Rose (PlayStation 2) — Could have been better, probably.

Tecmo Super Bowl (NES) — I really liked this one. I used a different tone/style than usual and thought it worked out well with this game.

Streets of Rage 2 (Genesis) — Decent.....not great, but it worked for me.

Parasite Eve (PlayStation) — Another review I really liked. I don't always succeed in putting a lot of personality in my reviews, but when I do, I really like the way things turn out.

Gokuraku Chuka Taisen (TurboGrafx-16) — I had a decent time of writing this. Bizarre, quirky-themed shooters tend to lead to fun reviews.

Silent Hill 2 (PlayStation 2) — Another fun review for a game I'd been wanting to write about for awhile.

God Medicine (Game Boy) — Could have turned out better. The game didn't give me much to work with, though, as it was really generic despite having a promising premise.

Silent Hill (PlayStation) — Like I said before, short reviews don't work for me, apparently. Here's another failure.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner (PlayStation 2) — As the ambitious three-part tournament went down in flames, so did this review. Not only did Jerec say it was boring as anything — but he didn't even have the COURTESY to make a clever PC-clock reference. It's like I sapped the life out of him....

Phelios (Genesis) — Overdrive continues to try keeping his shooter reviews somewhat fresh and entertaining!

Tiny Toon Adventures (NES) — Okayish review, I guess. Just another game that wasn't overly motivational. At least, over the years, I've gotten smart enough to keep those ones short instead of struggling through 1300 words about a game I don't really care about.
