Thanks for the kind words there. I agree BTW with your first paragraph. Those are some traits of an effective writer indeed.
Ah yes, the World Heroes 3 piece, written about seven years ago. Good times.
I'm generally an upbeat, positive guy. That's who I am, and also how I write. When I love a game, you can feel my passion for it through my writing. But when I dislike a game, I still try to write in a way that is beyond "This game sucks. I hate it. It is a total piece of shit." That's just not my style and also it's not what I feel constitutes "good writing." But hey, diff strokes for diff folks
And yes, it's time this thread is locked and moved into "Best of"
