Default im a retronaut

Or playing pretend as one, anyway.

https://retronauts.com/article/829/r...-of-the-rynocs

But I will be writing about bad games for the foreseeable future, or until Parish realises there is earnest prose in support of Daikatana on his website.

I am now a Games Journalist and all that entails. Shower me with press kits! Send me caustic death threats! etc.

That article is good and I'm glad the Video World "tone" comes across in prose.

I look forward to seeing how many of the games you write about I've actually played, and which ones I agree with you on (just like in Video World).

Any chance you could link to VW at the bottom of the article or something? More people need to see those videos imo

I tried to send you a caustic death threat, but it melted through the envelope. I assure you, it was very threatening and very misspelled, as per tradition.

This was a nice read, and I love (what I assume is) the premise for future pieces. Congrats on the gig, madhair!

Wow, that was just a joke question, but I really do have a deep-seated hatred of Yoshi. Very insightful answer. JP, whatever you are paying this guy, double it!

Congratulations madhair.

You whore.

I assume everyone knows that the second sentence was a joke but just in case: That second sentence was a joke.

Edit: Also that is a really fun article. Love your unique style.

Me too, but mostly because of the promise of stealth chimp, which was not, I think, the intent.

I had wondered where I remembered the "tidying up" bit from and then realized it was one of your videos.
