Check out this cool Blog site – below is my response to it that I thought I’d share with you..
Yippeeee!!!! The strip is back 😀 I’ve done a little happy dance with excitement. Now I can stop nagging you about it. 😀
As for the Pile of Shame, mine is mostly on my desktop, but come to think of it I do have a box full of games as well – you know, one of those square boxes that fit into wall units to store your stuff in.
You said that’s okay as they can wait to be played and will always be there. But WILL they play when you go to do so? Some of mine are just too old to work without pixellated graphics and other minor glitches or major glitches as well. 😀 So we will both have to try to squeeze them all in asap.
There is another problem with the more recent older games sitting in the stand-by list, and that is that by the time you get round to playing them so you can review them, gamers have moved on to newer faster clearer and technically advanced games (as have you of course which is why they are still sitting there waiting) so the review becomes redundant, and you spend your playing time in high frustration, peering throught the gloom at the screen, grumbling about there being no interactive Map, tapping your fingers as you wait for the interim black between-scenes screen to get over itself, and generally wondering why you thought it was good enough to buy a month or year ago. And when you do play them you can’t be bothered finishing them and they sit on the desktop waiting … waiting … waiting ….
It’s reassuring to think that I am not alone in having a Pile of Shame cluttering up my Desktop and my shelves. How many others are out there?
