Serve the public trust

Because we at GameSpite are compelled by our built-in directives, including the one where we can’t harm an employee of OCP, we now provide you with this very important public service announcement:

Do not play Robocop Vs. The Terminator! Not that you were likely to, but you know, just in case. Walt Simonson’s brilliant art can make terrible things look tempting. So be safe, citizen.

I meant to publish this article last week, to coincide with the rerelease of Robocop. That didn’t work out, but such is my dedication that I took some time from my busy schedule of doing nothing whatsoever all weekend to post it for you. Yes, for you. But now it’s Me time again: An entire weekend with no reviews to work on, no immediately pressing articles to write, no trips to take. And my girlfriend’s off in New York City until Monday. So, that’s about 48 hours in which to totally blow off everyone and everything else and vegetate for the first time in two months. I’m already well on the road to self-indulgence, having played through Portal last night (review: Totally great! Go play it.), and now… I think I’ll watch Robocop. It’s on my mind, for some reason.

  1. The power or Forman’s dad compels you. If he was in the game it would have been awesome…

  2. Vegetate? Good sir, you still have yet to read my article! Here is some motivation:

    Actually, I’m feeling similarily free from thinking and writing. I might wander down to the park and bask in the beautiful Autumn weather (one of the best things about living in Ohio). I’ve only been to San Francisco in the fall, so I’m guessing it’s raining out there, based on my experience.

  3. I actually had a dream last night that I met Robocop outside of Blockbuster. I think my dreams are kind of prophetic in a banal, completely useless-to-mankind way. I really think this burgeoning super power will help my character grow in popularity.

    Oh, and as for art making things look better than they are… I’m lookin’ at you, cover of Castlevania: Curse of Darkness! Cuz you’re pretty to look at.

  4. To this day, I’ve still never seen any of the Robocop movies. It’s been on my to-do list for… well, years now.

    All the same, after the comic book and those other “Vs.” movies, I still want a Robocop vs. Terminator movie.
