Over the last week or two (or three?) I’ve had a dozen unfinished conversations on Twitter and just as many ideas for articles and blog posts stemming from them, but it’s hard to find the time and energy to do justice to it all. Given the circumstances, I thought collecting all my half-written notes and reminders to get back to so-and-so in one place would kill all my various birds with one rock.

Life is busy, free time is short, and there are a hell of a lot of games coming out… More than any person could ever play, let alone finish. I do my best to keep up with the neverending flood, but there’s only so much one man can do. In an effort to be more nimble with my coverage, I’ve decided to roll out This Is Not A Review.
Amazing? No, pretty much as expected.
HIGH Swinging smoothly in a maze of skyscrapers.

LOW Being unable to tell an enemy from a wall in 2099.
WTF Wait… he ate Uncle Ben? Ick.
I would say that I'm a fan of Spider-Man, but I am usually not a fan of Spider-Man games. I have fond memories of web-slinging on the Genesis and Neversoft's entry on the PS1 is still the best adventure to be had with Peter Parker's alter ego, if you ask me. Besides those two outings, old Spidey has been stuck starring in a long string of unsatisfying, unhappy titles.
