My head just exploded, but not with dark foreboding. Merely mental exhaustion; I’ve just finished my first-ever EGM cover story
and boy are my arms tired. In the end, it was but a few thousand words, plus sidebars. Writing that many words wasn’t a problem; the topic at hand offered plenty to write about. No, the challenge came in paring down the first draft, which was about twice as long. There’s something sort of painful about culling more than half of an article you spent two full days writing, although I know intellectually that it’s certainly better for the ruthless revisions. I’m sorry, my little word-babies. Daddy still loves you.
Well anyway! Hopefully that’s out of the way and I can spend the rest of the week basking in the awesomeness of all of my stuff that’s gone up this week at 1UP, including Utopia or Dystopia? I made desktop art of the image in the article because I am lazy and it required no effort. Here are images for the six most popular resolutions at which this site is viewed!
Also, you should read the Contra Retro Roundup, because it will soften up your mind so that we can thoroughly blow it away tomorrow with our Internet-exclusive hands-on with Contra 4. Certain things you may have read about the game may be incorrect! I guess you’ll find out. Tomorrow. (By which I mean Thursday, which is already today for you East Coast types.)
Finally, I wrote a lot about Phantom Hourglass. And that’s, like, the beginning of the game. It doesn’t even delve into sailing, or the phantom hourglass itself.
Okay, I’m gonna crawl off to die now. I don’t think I’ll be able to write again for about a week or so. My brain’s all sore.
