Hey guys, let’s have an awesome argument about whether Mega Man 2 or Mega Man 3 is the better game, because that’s not old and stupid and pointless at all! Actually, I have a better idea: Just enjoy this article and take comfort in knowing that they’re both totally great.
In other news: Phil “Awesome” Armstrong submitted the cover for GameSpite Quarterly 6 right around the same time I finished the text and layouts, so I have submitted that bad boy for a press proof. The book should be on sale around November 10, I figure.
As you can see, the cover for next issue is completely wonderful. The contents aren’t too shabby, either! It’s the natural companion piece to GameSpite Quarterly 2 — last year, we celebrated Talking Time’s picks for the greatest games ever. This year, we’re looking at the games that didn’t make the cut, that are often dismissed or overlooked: the most underappreciated (asterisk*) games of all time. It’s an interesting list populated by interesting articles.
* Yeah, it’s the same asterisk as with GSQ2: one denoting total subjectivity, so don’t get too bent out of shape if you don’t totally agree with the list. Hell, I don’t totally agree with the list. That’s what makes it interesting.
