Like a plucky young reporter, I have to stand up to the media and fight for what I know is right. Sometimes a game just doesn't deserve a 9.4, no matter what IGN says.

Achieving to Achieve

Read 'Achieving to Achieve'

The Xbox 360 has this mysterious thing call "Achievements", tasks that the developer puts in the game that, when accomplished, add points to a nebulous score (viewable on the internet) that doesn't actually do anything.

For example: If I knock 30 zombies aside with the parasol in Dead Rising, 20 points is added to my Xbox Live screen name's score.

Most people know about this already, and have had enough time to get disillusioned with it. After all, this score doesn't actually do anything but give you a fuzzy feeling in your tummy, and ePenis bragging rights.

Know then, dear listener, that I have found the reason for achievements: Xbox Live Arcade.

Bringing out old systems?

Read 'Bringing out old systems?'

So there are currently two threads about yanking old consoles out of the closet/attic/cold storage to recapture old memories and catch up on missed ones... and while I certainly encourage these actions (especially the Walrus's Dreamcast revival), I do have one simple question for the rest of you.
