I Think It's TimeTo Share Now

I've been here long enough, so it's time I shared my site. Partly because I think everyone here will enjoy it. Partly because it's the reason I wanted to join NFF anyway. I've run across a few things where it would have been great if I'd had a group of people to ask instead of having to find the information myself.

Anyway, I've come here to share Juggle Chainsaws, my site where I'm attempting to review every NES game released in the United States in roughly chronological order. I wish I could do the order right, but Nintendo of America doesn't keep good records and there are way too many games where I can't get more specific than a month and year.

One of the things that makes my site different from other review sites is the end of the year wrap ups that I do. I'm statistically looking at the number of good and bad games (as decided by me), further breaking that down into separate graphs for the developer and publisher. Starting with the 1987 wrap up (since I combined 1985 and 1986 into one data set) I'll have separate graphs for just that year and everything done so far.

One of the interesting things so far is how Micronics, a notoriously bad developer, has a better good game percentage than Nintendo for the first two years.

Another highlight is how I'm addressing games that are done to death. The best, and ironically enough latest, example is Metroid. Way too much of that post is dedicated to how Nintendo was sloppy in referring to Samus as a male character.

Another highlight is how I'm handling bad games. Instead of just ripping Athena to pieces like it so rightly deserves, I go into a spiel about how the entire concept of the game is just stupid based on their inability to properly apply Greek mythology in a way that makes sense. I mean, really, the goddess of war getting bored on Mt Olympus? When would that ever happen?

I've just finished August of 1987 so I thought it would be a good time to share. Any feedback would be great, and I'm always looking for other sites to link with that I feel like my readers would be interested in.

Finally, I'm wondering if anyone has ideas for something other than game reviews I can work into the mix. I'm thinking that it might be a good idea to write something about the evolution of the cover art used by the different publishers. But I'm sure you can come up with a lot more.

Actually, it's not truly a review site. It's quite unique if you ask me. Also, as the operator of my own review site, screw you. People like you who complain over the quantity of such as either jelous of other people's skills and talents or simply can't stomach someone's opinion on things. If you don't like them, don't visit them, but don't bash someone else's passion. He doesn't bash yours.

the majority of posts you make offering an opinion are disrespectful. You just don't choose your words carefully enough.

You do it quite consistently, but this really isn't the place to discuss the matter. Back on topic, I really like the goal of his site. What do you plan on doing once you complete this goal, ichi?

I like your site.
I find reading game reviews oddly enjoyable.
I'm reading your review on Athena, it's funny. XD
