I don’t have anything to discuss this month that would take a paragraph or two to write out, so instead I’ll be employing a writing style I’ve seen used on other sites, one commonly referred to as “disjointed thoughts”. It’s either that or another pictorial, and unfortunately, I am currently lacking in Luigi eggs.
I don’t understand why people go onto a specific game’s message board and ask if the title is any good or not; are people who post on the Legend of Dragoon forums really going to be unbiased towards the game?… The Ninja Turtles title for Game Boy Advance that came out last year is thankfully a lot like the older Turtles titles… Why hasn’t Secret of Mana been ported to GBA yet? Same with Lufia 2, ToeJam and Earl, and Chrono Trigger… Joe and Mac for Sega Genesis is like Joe and Mac for Super Nintendo, except with 1/2 the levels and 1/2 the fun… Extreme Warfare Revenge is sucking out my soul; it’s hard to believe that a text-based pro-wrestling sim could be so addictive… Revolution X is quite possibly one of the worst video games ever to feature Aerosmith… Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles would be a really awesome multiplayer game if it weren’t for that bucket thing… I hate Bubsy the Bobcat… GameStop should sell less action figures and movies, and sell more video games; I don’t like having to resort to flea markets and yard sales for my SNES titles… After playing the game for a few hours, I declare Shenmue to be a wee bit overrated… Hey guys, guess what! After starting the game on four different occasions, I’ve finally beaten Chrono Cross!… I should get an Intellivision up and running some day so I can play the 30 some games I own for it… Did anyone besides Matt ever own a Game Boy Camera?… I think I’d like the Minibosses a lot more if I recognized the tunes they play. Though, they still wouldn’t be as good as g50… I have a poster for Rampage 2: Universal Tour hanging up in my room, and I don’t know why… Ribbit King – Best Sports Game of 2004. Too bad we don’t have a category for that in the IVE Awards… GameCola could use more writers, but that goes without saying… We could also use more people posting on the forums… And on the journals… STOP NOT DOING ANYTHING FOR GC YOU SLACKERS… I bet Mario could beat Sonic the Hedgehog in a fight…
P.S. Be sure to check out Julie Kozarsky’s brand new advice column, “Cheat Codes for Life”, which debuts this month. And while you’re at it, also check out Stuart Gipp’s new column, “Great Moments in Gaming”. He discusses the boot from Mario 3!
