How dare you quote your own quotes while quoting me! Shocking!...here, have some Funyuns .
I don't 'hate' Yars, I just didn't like it and said so. Not sure why this is so hard for you to wrap your head around.
I don't think it's a stretch to know I'd prefer to play this version of Star Castle than a game I know I don't like (Yars)...I know what I like, what can I say?
I think part of the Yars dislike comes from the theme. Being a fly, eating a wall...after the third screen, I was pretty much done with Yars. Maybe I'll fire it up and give it another chance this weekend.
It's kinda like ROTLA, I think. When I think about when that game came out and what they were trying to do, it's a masterpiece (especially considering it was done on a VCS). But when I played it the first time in the early 90s, I was stunned by how 'bad' I thought it was. No instructions, no real action...I did figure out the two controller thing on my own but after watching the awesome commercials for that game in the 80s, I was expecting much more. And since I also didn't 'get' Adventure (a game that is pretty much loved and respected amongst more Atari fans), I couldn't really 'get' ROTLA. And I can see why (in retrospect) Yars would have been considered quite ground-breaking, but it's also got lots of action.
But I just didn't like it. And I know I'll like Star Castle (either version, really). Nothing to explain, really.
Have you ordered your copy off Kickstarter yet? Not much longer now!
I still can't tell if you are being friendly or on the offensive...
Not sure why this is so hard for you to wrap your head around.
Statements like that make me feel it's the offensive..so I have decided I am just going to put you on pseudo troll status, pending wedgie list approval
Now, wedgie approval doesn't happen overnight so if infact you are being friendly the panel of experts will determine this and you will NOT achieve wedgie list approval. Any record of your pending status will be erased so you will be free to live a normal life.
If the paperwork is approved you may still recieve an appeal by yelling "UNCLE" moments before the wedgie in question is delivered. Please state UNCLE in an audible manner, if english is not your first language we have other choices available so please make it known after your wedgie approval message is sent. If your appeal is denied please refrain from begging or crying as it only makes it worse and CAN upgrade you to an atomic variation, if the "wedger" sees fit (and they usually do)
*DISCLAMER - My wedgie list is fictional, I do not actually have a "crew" that hunts people down and gives them wedgies. Please do not contact the mods in fear that I will give you a real wedgie (yes, this has actually happened) All actual wedgies (atomic or classic) you recieve from this date forward were purely coincidental and had nothing to do with me or the southside wedgie crew
*edit - except for Cebus, he really gets one
