So… I have a copy of BioShock in hand. But I can’t play it — I have to finish up Phantom Hourglass this weekend. As far as tragedies go, this is easily among the least substantial ever experienced by a human. Sometimes I feel guilty about living such a spoiled life. But then I remember that I’m awesome and totally deserve it.
Yeeeeah. Anyway, please enjoy the following big-pixel eyesores. And by “enjoy” I mean “click on.” They’re links, you see.
As a sort of complement to the weekly Retro Roundup at 1UP, I’ve initiated a compendium of reader-created Virtual Console reviews. Proof that it’s going to be awesome: The first entry is a write-up of the abysmal Urban Champion.
The mad rush of Mega Man retrospectives continues with a look at another forgotten chapter of the series: the second Game Boy title.
And finally, a look at 3 in Three, a mid-’90s Mac game so obscure I’ve never even heard of it. And I spent most of the mid-’90s mucking around with obscure Mac games, so that’s saying something.
Anyway, I would have to say that our early experiments with reader-created content has been a smashing success — it’s actually turned out much better than I had hoped or expected. So! Hopefully this weekend I will have a chance to bring everyone who expressed interest in helping out into the fold. Please keep an eye on your Talking Time private message box over the next few days.
