Yeah, yeah... So Amazon no longer carries new consoles, and every other site I try to order from declines my card because I'm trying to ship to an alternate address from my billing address. So I mailed out a check to last months winner after finally giving up.

My next step is to look into an account with Best Buy, which will apparently allow me to have things delivered to random addresses on a regular basis. Sorry we haven't bothered to announce a winner yet for this month. :)

Hey, an 8.1. That's pretty damn good, you've beaten a shit load of other games by a wide margin. I'm sure the game will appeal mostly to those who were fans of the game when it premiered here though.

Can't wait to play it.

Thanks for the info, Tom :)

Good luck with Alien Hominid...Although I knew a little more than other users about it (menus and that kind of stuff) I hadn't had time to check the screenshots of it and it seems is going to be a cool game :D

I'll get a copy of it as soon as I can :)

High praise from ign.com.
"The point is, Alien Hominid is a great game worthy of a purchase"

i also liked seeing they actually mentioned the name of the site the original game was from, whereas many of the others didn't.

I see that player 1 has 99 lives. Good to know, since I was wondering if it was going to be like another Contra 3 where I just kept dying all the time. Yeah, I suck at video games.

To quote the review:
"Alien Hominid is plain unfair at times."

Tom, Dan.. anyone who has played this... I want to know one thing:

Is the reviewer a pussy, or is it a true challenge?

I don't like easy as pie gimme-games. I LOVE a challenge.

Congrats on the good review. Its gotta be a great feeling knowing all your hard work on the game seems to be paying off. I know I'm gonna buy it (to the eternal woe of my parents and college essays).

I'm glad I pre-ordered this already. I had no clue as to whether it would rock or roll. Now, I know that it's better than most games I buy anyway and at $30. That's sweet. The only reason the graphics rating was down at all is that it wasn't some liquid smooth super perfect animation I'm guessing. But they don't understand that it's to be true to it's original format. This game is gonna be so cool. YAY! And I have Halo 2 and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to keep me company for the next few days until this comes out.

I'll probably still be playing Halo 2, though. As soon as I get off the internet I'm gonna play some more Halo.


I suck.

You know, I hate those kind of ads that fuck you up when you're looking at a webpage. Like having a man run across the screen or some other crap like that. There's one on that IGN site where the damn fucking car is trampling mud all over the webpage FFS. How the hell are we supposed to read the fucking review?

Here's what I saw... tell me how am I supposed to read that shit?

Your reply to this isn't going to be clever or witty, so just put down the internet and go outside.

Sweet review! I'm so amped to pick this up. I was wondering if it hits the shelf on the 16th or just shipping out on the 16th (i.e. will be there a few days later)? Reguardless, between ATHF season 3 & AH, I'm going to be a busy guy next week.

Congrats on the nice score! I was still tossing it around in my head whether I should buy it or not, but the fact that you can wear different hats really garenteed my purchase. How many hats total are in the game? oh, and I luv the ANGRY FAIC boss meter! heh
