Unfinished games: Why do you walk away?

As a reviewer, I play on average 2-3 new games each week. This boils down to 8-12 games each month; about 100-150 per year.

Yet in any given 12 month period, I can probably count on one hand the...

Re: Ads in Games: Thoughts, Rants, Etc.?

Maybe my memory is failing me, but weren't there a few games based on advertising characters?

I vaguely remember a 7-Up game for the Genesis.

And wasn't there an "Avoid The Noid" game for...

Re: Ads in Games: Thoughts, Rants, Etc.?

Anytime I'm force-fed advertising, I have a strong reaction.

If I can't close a window, change the channel, or skip over a trailer at the start of a dvd, etc. I go nuts.

Ads in Games: Thoughts, Rants, Etc.?

In Fight Night Rd. 3 (EA) you can "hire" the Burger King as your fighter's cornerman (he gives your stat ratings a heart boost, making it easier to get up from knockdowns). And every time I put an...

Re: How to get published as a game critic?

Doug, I'm certainly not getting rich off this. Not even close. If I wanted to be rich, I would have gotten an MBA or gone to law school. But I'm doing what I want to be doing, working in an industry...

Re: How to get published as a game critic?

Thought I'd chime in, since I currently make my living writing about videogames. (No small task, considering I live in NYC.)

Took me a few years to break into the business. I started out as a...

Re: Good video game stores in NYC

Since Gamesters on 14th Street closed, there really aren't any independent game stores left in NYC. (With the exception of the St. Marks store you mentioned, which has a decent selection, but is way,...

Best Ice/Snow/Water Games To Play On Hot, Humid Days?

It's hot in NYC. 90-plus everyday. I loaded up SSX 3 yesterday, and felt myself enjoying the subzero snowboarding action. Which got me wondering... Are there other ice/snow/water games out there that...

Re: Need for Speed Underground 2 and Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition?

Midnight Club 3, hands down.

There's a raw, organic energy to the races in MC3. (I love the checkpoint system, love finding my own route through the city blocks.)

Underground feels too sterile...

Re: The Toughest Fighting Game Opponents of All Time?

Re: Oddworld: Stranger and the post-holiday bulge

I'm with Brad. Stranger's Wrath is damn good stuff.

Me, I'm playing through StarFox and Nano Breaker this week. StarFox is another quality Nintendo title, but it's a little underwhelming and...

The Toughest Fighting Game Opponents of All Time?

Help! I'm writing a story (unfortunately, not for GC) about the 10 Baddest Bad-asses in fighting games.

Boxing, wrestling, or more traditional fighting games like Street Fighter are all...

Re: New Review Posted: Resident Evil 4

Use the shotgun on Krauser--and don't let him breathe. Just stay on top of him, keep walking him down. I beat him and had a minute-plus to get out of there.

Re: New Review Posted: Resident Evil 4

So my review is a bit of a blowjob?

Believe me, nobody is more of an old man or more prepared to skewer a game on this site than I am. Which is why playing RE 4 was such a surprise and pleasure...

Re: I saw Doom 3 running on the Xbox yesterday...

Re: EA Boycott

Re: New Review Posted: Resident Evil 4

Matt's right--the plot blows. (How very astute of you to point this out, Matt.) The dialogue, while strong at the beginning--I love Leon's line, "Where's everyone going? Bingo?"--quickly gets...

Re: EA Boycott

Stranger's Wrath is well worth your time and money.

As is Fight Night Round 2.

Timesplitters Future Perfect...let's just say you should probably save your dough on this one, boys and girls.

Hypatia, Thanks for the idea, but I think I'll pass on posting my Tiger Woods link here. Let's just say that my other v.game writings probably wouldn't be appropriate (or even relevant) for a GC...

Re: i'm playing a golf game, and i have no idea why...
