First: I’ve spent the day putting together the biggest Retro Roundup since the very first one, back at Wii’s launch last November. This is the long-intended counterpart to that first update, in fact — a massive collection of all the Xbox 360 games that hit Live Arcade before the Wii’s launch. I’ve even atoned for the terrible sin of our misbegotten DOOM for XBLA review! It is good.
Nintendo fantards, of course, will want to seize this opportunity to note that I clearly hate Nintendo because I didn’t even put a single Virtual Console game on there. 1UP anti-Nintendo bias: logged and confirmed.
Today’s featured article is bobservo’s paean to Wild Arms 4. He likes it quite a bit more than I did! And actually, this review is making me reconsider my fairly lukewarm review… maybe I didn’t appreciate the game for what it really is. For shame. So please to enjoy this positive, uplifting piece of work. With luck it will soften your defenses so that when we go back to being our usual jerky, sarcastic selves it will strike you like a steel fist to the sternum. Pow.
Also, be sure to go respond to this post to assist with possible future Retronauts endeavors! Maybe.
