I’ll show them I can pull the biggest bonus of all

I, uh, meant to post this the other night, but stupidly forgot to set the entry live. Whoops! Anyway, it’s taken much longer than I intended or expected, but I’ve finally finished the text for the bonus mini-zines. Sorry these are running so late; I made a terrible mistake in choosing to fill its back half with fiction. Do you know how long it’s been since I’ve written fiction? Like, forever. I got off to a painfully rusty start and spent forever building up a good head of steam. But the short story — 4,000 words counts as short, right? — is done, and now I just need to print and paste it on the pages. Meanwhile, my button-maker seems to have vanished off the face of the earth. I find this turn of events distressing.

New Game Plus | Weekly Game Releases
Can you guess what the game of the week is? I recommend fighting temptation and not playing through the whole of Mega Man 9 in one sitting — savor it. After all, game like this only happens once every 20 years or so. I’m still bummed I blew through Mega Man 3 the day I got it, ’cause nothing else ever quite stacked up. P.S., this was the tamest Splash Woman fanart I could find. Oh, Internet.

To say I’m looking forward to the Blu-Ray release of The Godfather would be an understatement! OK, not really. It would be a perfectly accurate and fair assessment of the situation. I mean, fantastic movies, quality format, Marlon Brandon wheezing in uncompressed digital audio. Should be great! But I haven’t been losing any sleep over it or anything.

  1. Parish: Have you considered adding the code for comments on articles? I think it’d be nice, as I had a thing or two to say about your excellent MM9 writeup.

    Unless, of course, you think it’d detract from liveliness in the forums.

  2. The site’s wiki, where the articles are found, and the site’s blog, where the comments are found, are pretty different, and they are cobbled together with scotch tape and chewing game. Unfortunately there is no box to check that says “Put comments here”. Luckily there is a forum and you can always post your thoughts on the blog entry introducing each issue of Gamespite.

  3. Dude, Animalia? (In the “other stuff” at the bottom of Add To Queue.) I remember that being a really awesome picture-book. I have a bad feeling that unheralded existence of a movie version means “quick CG-with-animals cash-in”, but if anyone knows different please chime in.

  4. Re: Splash Woman, at least one group of internet denizens has been going kind of overboard making inappropriate fanart of her.

    Also: Why no Wipeout HD in New Game +? It seems like a pretty high-profile release.
