The party never stops

Sorry about the spottiness of the updates lately. I’m really determined to up the quality and content of the blog so that you have more to read than just reprinted material from the quarterlies, but my schedule has been brutal for the past month. PAX, TGS, and now a rather impromptu trip to L.A. to check out a game for a 1UP cover story has left me with barely any free time whatsoever. I apologize, humans! Once I work through next week’s articles, things should be pretty calm for the rest of the year. I have no more trips planned, my review schedule should be pretty light since the bulk of this year’s major titles are already out, and… oh, wait, I promised another GameSpite compilation to follow up Year One, Vol. 1, didn’t I? Man, I am so my worst enemy.

On the plus side, I had a chance to look at not one but two unannounced games today, both of which made me awfully happy. It warms my heart to know that even as the industry tightens its collective belt even further and scales back on releases, there are still plenty of things in the works that cater quite effectively to my personal obsessions and interests.

Still no Mega Man Legends 3, though. Someone really ought to get to work on that. I pestered Ben Judd about it at TGS and he was all, “Not my series, man.” So much for my so-called industry connections!

  1. Quick, harass Tomm Hulett about it, he’s in tight with… he’s Konami, isn’t he. Nuts.

    Man, what good are you.

  2. I’m kind of surprised that Judd is still kicking around. Pleased, but surprised. I seem to recall reading somewhere that he had a lot riding on the success of Bionic Commando, what with Capcom not typically letting a Westerner helm a big-budget, high profile release.

  3. It’s too bad that Bionic Commando tanked. I really really liked it. I feel that while it did have flaws, a sequel would have been what it needed to perfect its concepts that were introduced in the game. I am glad that Ben Judd is still working around even though Capcom might not let him head any project soon.

    And a Mega Man Legends 3 would also be great, even if it’s a wiiquel.

  4. Ok, time to start speculating on what would make Jeremy happy but isn’t MML3. Hmm, if mere localizations count, I’d pull for 7th Dragon and/or Retro Game Challenge 2. If we’re talking whole new games I’ve gotta keep thinking…

  5. Maybe a new 2D Metroid? Mega Man 10? Or perhaps X9?

    Any word on when we’ll get info on these upcoming games?

  6. I’d like to think that you were invited down for a more thorough hands-on with Crackdown 2. (Failing that, maybe a late look at A Boy and His Blob?)

  7. Man, I sure do hate the British belief that “Jez” is a good abbreviation for “Jeremy.”
