The Wii would be a bad choice. This is a 720p Lindbergh game, after all... Granted, it doesn't exactly use all the horsepower of the system, but still.

Yeah, he linked the arcade article, and also the one about using the Japanese titles of Japanese games. To be perfectly honest, I was indeed a bit let down when I saw the post had been removed. Is stuff like this more newsworthy then? Wouldn't his readers find my articles more interesting and though...

Hey man, I was planning to review Captain America soon, but I guess I'll put it off for later now. Nice update. And by the way, I appreciate you trying to get me linked off of IC -- I got about 150 clicks before the post was pulled down! It's no big deal, though. I understand Brandon. I would have a...

I played two credits of this at the AM show in September on an Egret III. I remember thinking that the animation and scrolling were a bit choppy, and though it was very colorful, the enemy and stage designs were not very memorable -- apart from the girl with the umbrella nothing else stands out in m...

Well, for what it's worth me and twe have resolved our differences via pm. I wrote him the following just now: It's just this faceless medium that sometimes brings out the worst in people.

The irony being the above post would be considered by most to be pretty similar to trolling, or something you "used to" do. I never used to troll. In fact I don't even know what trolling means -- and neither does anyone else. Trolling is one of those labels like "terrorism" which people attach to o...

I stopped posting in forums a few weeks ago (though I still check several every now and then) but I have to butt in here and just say that I love you guys. I love recap because he behaves just like I do on the internet, in so many ways, and I really seriously love even twe, even though he is a fucki...

It's funny how this works. At times I've been linked off of Siliconera, GameSetWatch and Kotaku, all of which do a lot more traffic than IC. And yet, I only get a couple of hundred clicks from these sites, but I once got over 1,300 clicks from IC from a single post, and I regularly get upwards of 30...

Hey, I wanna know about these rules! They sound interesting.

More interesting than talking about this fucking boring game, at least.

Turns out there was something wrong with my IP address. Because no matter what I tried, I couldn't access Shmups from home. I went to a net cafe across the street and had no problems, so when I came back home I reset my router (to get a new IP address) and it worked fine. Weird stuff. Made me realiz...

For instance, I always liked the idea of a related background image to unify the whole article, so I just looked for a texture, which was made from a single game screenshot, pertinently scaled and filtered. I think that's at least the 50% of the composition. I wholeheartedly agree. Well, thanks for...

Nope, the 360 screens are from various Japanese websites. I'd love to have true screengrabs for old game reviews, but it's an incredibly time-consuming process for what is essentially a one-man website. I'd rather spend the extra time wrting more reviews. However, if I had a choice, my whole website...

Sony Cybershot DSC-T1.

I just point it and shoot, man. I've never even touched the settings -- everything's on default...

But I will say this: it takes about 15-20 discarded pictures to get a good one. To get the screens on that page I must have taken upwards of 100 pictures.

I've covered its second location test . I really like this game, though I haven't had the chance to play the final version yet. The high-res graphics are certainly appealing, but the art is nothing exceptional. It's not like a Guilty Gear game, which I can just sit and stare at without even playing,...

The one foremost in my mind right now is: will they introduce a new board? I don't see Cave introducing a new board ever, honestly. Myself, I can't see why they wouldn't. They introduced their current board with Mushihime-sama, and it seems clear to me that back then they had less resources than th...
