Hey- just got done chatting with reporter in question from a few posts down.
I'm gonna answer his questions because he has agreed to resubmit them without the negative slant.
Then, he and I are gonna do a podcast together and talk about this issue and the PS3 and games in general.
Should be fun! It ain't FROST/NIXON, I grant you, but hell, we'll get a kick out of it!
I'll post the conversation once it's done.
ps. and I heard the new 1up podcast show tonite- or whatever they are calling it now. If you guys are reading this, would love to go on your show for a few minutes to have a chance to explain myself and defend myself. If not, no worries...I don't have a game coming out for a while and it prob makes more sense to bring folks on with specific games to talk about. Maybe as we get closer to release. Either way, glad your show is still around- I thought it got lost in the layoffs. I love 1upyours!

And here is the amazing box art from SLOT RACERS! I saw this and HAD to have it when I saw it at Service Merchandise at Eastwood mall (a place enshrined in my childhood geek memory, along with Aladdin's Castle at Brookwood mall and the Brookwood mall theater).
With box art like that, how could you turn it down?!?! SO AMAZING!!! My little kid imagination was going off the rails!
And then this is what I see when I plug it in to my 2600:
Errr....yeah...ok....now look, the old school games never looked that amazing and compared to the Intellivision, Atari 2600 had the worst graphics for sure (kind of like the 360 having shittier graphics than the PS3....I KEED! I KEED! Man, it's so easy to stir up a shit storm....or AM I kidding?!?!)
...but yeah, that fucker went back in the box and back to the store in no time flat! I don't recall what we exchanged it for....but it sure as shit was better than fucking Slot Racers!
