and I are over
at JeffK's house playing Dreamcast games. They start with this fishing game
would make an interesting video
game?) and they keep pestering me to play.
I refuse. “I just want a simple shoot-em-up game,” I said.
“Well, I have this one shoot-em-up game,” said JeffK. “But it's nearly
impossible to play.”
“Let's see it.”
JeffK loads the game. No idea what it's called, since it's all in Japanese,
but it's this wierd overhead scrolling shoot-em-up game where a bazillion
objects, enemies, bullets, lasers, power-ups, shields, explosions, the
background, are all moving in six different directions at once and it's
impossible to actually be anywhere on the screen for more than a
second without being killed and we're all wondering This is a game that
can actually be played?
We then moved on to a taxi-cab driving game.
And I thought Burger Time was a bizarre game.
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
