As I mentioned before our SWG interview is now online. I want to take a minute and thank Hayden and Rich for sitting down with us and answering our questions. I would also like to direct you all to go out and grab a copy of the new Jango Fett comic book. It is a four part series and it’s written by none other than Mister Hayden Blackman. After the interview I asked him if he was into any expanded universe stuff. Well not only is he into it, he fucking writes the shit. So go pick up number one at your local comic book shop. I have it here in front of me and it was a damn good read.
I beat Lost Kingdoms yesterday. I understand this might not sound like a big deal but this is the very first RPG I have ever beaten in my entire life. My total play time was somewhere around the nine hour mark. I skipped over getting the elemental power cards though by accident. I plan on going back in and getting those now that I have reopened all the levels. I really can’t say enough good things about this game. Even if you don’t normally go for RPG’s you should consider giving this one a shot.
Mail is pouring in regarding my history of SNK feature. Lots of you are already asking questions about the various systems. If you sit tight and wait for the rest of the feature I’ll be going over all of them in detail. Travis from videogame depot sent word that they got a couple AES systems as well as a CD system in this week. They may already be gone but if you’re interested you might want to drop them a line. Also my copy of Metal Slug 4 should be arriving sometime next week. You can expect a full review of it in the Land of the Rising Fun. We will also be taking a look at a few other imports like the new Castlevania for the GBA and Zettai Zetsumei Toshi which is some kind of earth quake sim I guess. It should be a hoot.
Thank you to everyone who has signed up for Club PA this month. I do hope that you enjoyed your first gift. We plan on hooking you all up again towards the end of the month with an exclusive PA comic strip. The only way to see this stuff is to become a member. Even if it’s just a dollar, that is a dollar that I can spend on videogames instead of food to feed my hungry family.
