Haha! I KNEW someone would ask that! He knows EVERYTHING about gaming. I mean, to be senior editor you would figure he'd have to. He is also a hardcore Treasure fan. Treasure is a small company that was formed by Konami employees in the 90s (it was the same guys who made Contra while at Konami). They were one of my biggest rolemodels and made one of my favorite games - Gunstar Heroes. Ricardo gave me the heads up for Astro Boy for the GBA, coming out next month. It is by Treasure and plays like Gunstar Heroes. I'm dying to play it!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Amazon or elsewhere, for instance...

We will sell it direct on-line. It will be preferred that users buy it from us directly, because we don't make nearly as much money selling it in stores.

lol yeah dreamcast is just a passing memory...kind of like amazon.com...

I'm not surprised that AH is getting the attention it deserves. It was so fun to play at comic-com, I bet it will be known for quite awhile.

But if AH proves to be a success you & your publisher would eventually sell it though retail, right? And uh, what sorts of payment will you accept?

Does this mean I can't just walk across the road, enter EB and buy myself a copy?

If by navbars you mean the layouts, then that's pretty cool.

As for AH, that's very cool too.


Apologies aren't what I look for. Redemption is what I want!

No one has said anything about a PC version of the game. It will make me sad if I have to hire a PS2 just to play it.

A lot of games that have gotten a lot of publicity have turned out bad. I'm not hoping for that to happen to AH, but I'll just wait to read the reviews from the likes of EGM and Gamepro before I go get all exstatic over the game.

Nice, a Gamespot interview. Now your game is officially big!

Question: Will there be a PAL version?

Don't make me have to go and buy a Freeloader, now.

Oh, and you're working on a new layout too! The good news just doesn't stop coming.


fucking magnets man how do they work

Alien Hominid was the main story on Teletext's (UK) Gamecentral this morning. They even mentioned newgrounds.com and the fact that it was great...

Being the main story, it even manged to beat the new Nintendo DS design story...

Official Playstation magazine mentioned it as well, and said it looked a bit shit.

I aint buying it.

Why the hell would you pay £40 for a game that you can play for free?

I guarantee it will not be nearly as impressive on PS2 as it is on flash.
