SPC Mailbag - The Premiere Edition

Another week, another new segment it seems. Keeps things fresh, yes? I get asked certain questions more times than others, so for this first edition of the SPC Mailbag I'll be posted frequently asked questions from either my e-mail or message board posts. And to be considered frequently asked, a question needed to be answered more than... never. No, seriously. We're still small, so I'm glad nothing's too complicated to get many questions. Let's get started, shall we?

~ How many reviews have you done total? What's your highest rated review? What's your lowest rated?

I have currently written 97 reviews. I'm closing in on #100 obviously, so I have something small but special planned for that event. I don't quite know which game will be #100, but I'm not going to go out of my way to review a big game just as my 100th review.

There are actually two reviews that were rated 10/10. They are Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

My worst scored game was Ninjabread Man for the Wii. It was a free rental at Blockbuster, I wanted to see how bad it was, etc. ...Should have rented Gigli instead.

~ What was your first ever review?

Ah, you're making me feel old. I'm kidding, of course. ;)
I'll just let the cat out of the bag now since it's already suffocated due to a lack of oxygen. After my 100th review I'll be posting my first ever review to see myself how I've improved as a reviewer... or declined. hehe

~ What's your current favorite platform?

I'm playing a lot more games on my Wii, PSP, and DS than anything else. It's good to root for the underdog in the Wii. What? It's the number one selling console! Sure, but there's a wide variety of ignorant, bitter, and/or uninformed "HD" gamers who just don't get it. They always come up with silly ways to criticize the system. "Games don't sell!" then "Third party games don't sell" then "Only non-games sell!" then "Only games from well-known series sell!", etc. They constantly are proven wrong, but they continue to whine. NeoGAF is the worst. The mods will let Wii trolling fly, but if you dare derail a thread about a PS3 or 360 game, you're banned. Thankfully, I just lurk. ;)

~ When will your Top 100 Games be completed?

That's a tough one. I don't want to finish the list as quickly as possible because there's a lot of good gems that I've never had the time to play such as Goldeneye, Silent Hill 2, Shadow of the Colossus, Okami, Sly Cooper, Zelda: Twilight Princess, God of War 2, etc. This backlog will kill me for sure. Sorry to keep you folks waiting though.

~ Will you ever be returning to Wi-Fi World?

For those unaware, I founded this Nintendo Wi-Fi gaming site in April 2006. Long story short, a year ago I got tired of some of the stereotypical rude internet mindset, closed down the site, and left. This didn't make most of the members to happy. Most are indifferent about me now but some are still upset. Do I care? No, since the ones still are upset are the ones I didn't like to begin with.

Now will I go back, no, I thought about it, but I just want to completely move on. It was fun, but now I have my blog which I love even more. I hope everybody has moved on and is happy too.


Also, if anyone has the artistic touch, I'd love to have a logo for my various "bits" such as the VGMs, Top 100 Games, and the SPC Mailbag!

Finally, one of our new readers, Chief, thought up an excellent name for the Poll-- the Central City Census! Such alliteration, such brilliance! Methinks he's known me from Wi-Fi World. ;)
