@StarBoy: considering how impatient a certain denomination of gamers have been, all frothing at the mouth with petitions and rants about their beloved VC titles not being available yet or being available in region(s) other than their own, thus my question. ;)

@grenworthshero: this was a pretty good article on being a tester. HowStuffWorks.com also is usually full of solid info... according to both, it's networking, living near a testing center, and willingness to put up with BS that's important. Chatham's the guy on the forums you'd want to talk to about it; he's a VG tester iirc.

[And I made this because I wanted to get over the 1984 thing. I didn't mean to sound rude about it. :( ]

PROTIP: if you stop referring to things you've said before on the forums that you're now embarrassed by, people will not constantly be reminded of them (and completely uninvolved parties will never know the difference and won't ask or try to find on their own what the heck you're talking about). You're not being rude by bringing up other versions of Namco Museum for other platforms, and who cares why you made this thread to discuss Dig Dug? It was a decent, fairly addictive little game. :3

@RWP: i'll look into that, thanks. I wonder why they didn't put Dig Dug on the Namco Museum they released for DS... i'd love to have it for DS and be able to take it with me wherever. :/

@buffalobob: totally, but i'm just saying that it's kinda unfair to compare Transformers to the complete and total awesome that was JP. Transformers was crap IMO no matter what you compare it to... they could at least have cast some human actors that didn't suck.

@buffalobob: Jurassic Park had a solid novel behind it, unlike the Transformers movies. JP is also one of the few movies where you can definitely say the movie was as good as the book (usually, the book is far superior), even though they were both somewhat different. :3

i wasn't a fan of the first movie... the Transformer redesigns/reimagining were top-notch, as were the battle scenes, but the human acting was pretty lame IMO. I laughed my tail end off when that Shia LeBoeuf dude announced 'that's Megatron, he's the leader of the decepticons' because it was so freaking stupid, and i was definitely weirded out at the end with him and the chick making out on Bumblebee's hood with the other Transformers watching. Eww.

I didn't bother with the second because i figured it'd be more of the same, to be honest. I'll catch it when it shows up on TV someday, if there's nothing better on to watch. :3

@MrPinguy: yeah, that's a pretty childish reason not to like something. i totally forgot to address that in my reply, lol. if you're basing what games you like on whether or not everyone else likes them or not, whether you go with or against the flow, you're still going to miss out on some quality titles. :/

if i haven't played it, i can't say that i hate it. it's as simple as that. it doesn't make sense to say that I don't like something if I don't have direct experience with it in order to add to the discussion, however negative it may be. :3 I can say that it does or doesn't look like something I'd be interested in playing, though.

however, if a game got especially bad reviews, i reserve the right to grin and lol when others who have played it are ripping on it. :3

I've had my LJ for nearly a decade now (lol, have i really been using it for that long?). I originally migrated to the service along with a bunch of friends from a now-defunct message board, I found my now-husband through LJ, and though I don't really blog half as much as I used to back in high school, I still use it to keep track of friends both old and new, and also to log all my bill information (behind filters, of course, but it's become a surprisingly good way for me to keep track of my finances and confirmation codes for paid bills).

if any of y'all are on LJ, feel free to add me -- mine is friends only, but so long as I can figure out who you are on the forums, I'll add you back. :3
