Mnargh, I need to shake off the cobwebs and do something useful with this site. Like, I don’t know, update it or something. I think I am suffering a case of blogjam after ten days of blitzing through Pokémon, which segued immediately into reviewing Final Fantasy Anniversary, which is going to take me right up to tackling Odin Sphere. And Revenant Wings is due in about three days. What is wrong with publishers that they send me all the good stuff right at once? (Uh, except FF Anniversary. It’s merely… interesting.) I haven’t even touched Super Paper Mario, and Intelligent Systems actually created that game specifically for me. No, it’s true, I’m sure of it. I feel like such an ingrate.
I guess in lieu of actually writing something worthwhile I’ll just flog my other stuff. Like how Ray and I are turning the Retronauts blog into, hopefully, something worth reading. And I’m backing it up at this site, because apparently 1UP deletes old blog entries now, or something? I’m not entirely clear on the concept, but in any case if you ever need a one-stop Retronauts blog archive stop, this is it. You should check 1UP’s version first, though, so I can trick all the stat trackers into thinking I’m useful.
And of course, there’s always a weekly Retro Roundup. Bonus Stage is still MIA, but for a good, encouraging reason: I’ve gotten my hands on Final Cut and am trying to learn it. No more filthy, useless iMovie for me, thanks.
Finally, Dewy’s Adventure is so adorable I could vomit, and not strictly in a good way. And I say this as an adult male with an uncharacteristically high tolerance threshold for cuteness. The sort of person who finds it annoying that his pokémon start looking tough and angry when they evolve past their baby forms. But Dewy… Dewy goes, maybe, a little too far. Still, I really like the gameplay — a lot — so I guess maybe I can stifle my gag reflex for the time it’ll take to finish it once it comes out.
