Kid Culture on the NES
OK! So with this posting, I’ve done a pretty good job of carpet-bombing the site with a spread of GameSpite Quarterly 5 content. I think now you have a pretty good picture of what’s inside the issue now: Short game retrospectives, lengthier game retrospectives, bite-sized gallery retrospectives, and articles like this, which are game retrospectives masquerading as something else.
Anyway, you get the picture. It sounds like people who shelled out for rush shipping are beginning to receive their copies of GSQ5 already, which is nice. They also seem not to hate it, which is even nicer. I spend so much time with these things that I lose all objective perspective on their quality by the end of the production cycle and honestly can’t tell if they’re awesome or wretched. So far we seem to be trending toward the former rather than the latter.
Meanwhile, I have already immersed myself in the next issue, because I’m stupid like that. As it happens, I need one more contributor to round out the ranks for GSQ6! Specifically, I need someone who (1) wants to write, (2) writes well, and (3) wants to write well about Panzer Dragoon Saga. If this sounds like you, I think it would be pretty great for you to drop me an email sometime today to express your interest. I mean, you’re certainly under no obligation to do so, of course. I’m merely putting it out there as a suggestion. You know. If that’s something you’d be into.
