Alright, your reviews are looking better. I see you even took the time to resize the arcade FF shots as Capcom arcade games are a bit wide before being properly formatted (they use non-square pixels). I like the comparison shots as well. As for the Two-P/Y-signal, I've always noticed that. They never ever face forward, either. Both games also have fat dudes that blow fire and an elevator stage. All of this is REQUIRED for a side-scrolling brawler. If your game doesn't have these, they kick you out of Japan.

That's funny. I know that those chubby dudes in Streets of Rage blow fire but the chubby dudes in Final Fight just try and ram you with their big fat heads. Resizing the shots is extremely easy. Notice that I kept some of them in the widescreen format. I just did it as an effect for the layout, just like that Forgotten Worlds arcade screenshot. Perhaps it would've been better if I resized that, too, but it's not really an issue.

Yeah, most people don't bother to resize and assume that the arcade games had a screen as wide as the graphics. Golden Axe 3 had fire blowing fat dudes. Golden Axe 3 is THE REFERENCE!

Good, I like what you've done. Much better than trying to read one blob of text with no fancy pictures.

Yes, I demand you go back and change ALL of your reviews to this new format. I'll check back tomorrow and if it has not been done, I'll delete EVERYTHING but the latest two reviews. Sounds reasonable, eh?

Heh, I would if I could but I don't have the storage capacity nor bandwidth for that, not to mention the countless hours to design around 300 reviews.

yeah, it's hard to believe you have written 300 reviews.

It's almost too much. I won't have that kind of free time anymore, though I'll do some more reviews like the last two. In fact, I'm working on one now whenever I have free time, so look forward to it.
