Shut The Fuck Up And Shoot!
November 27th, 2007

I hope everyone enjoyed the Top 25 Articles posted last week. I know it was great for me seeing how everyone's tastes in gaming differed and how we all seemed to agree on a lot of things. Really great stuff and I wanna thank everyone again for participating. There's still a couple updates for that one coming up, so stay tuned to the main page for those updates.

Today's order of business involves my most anticipated game of 2007. For once, I wasn't let down. If you don't already know what game I'm talking about, it's Contra 4, you fuckin' tardmo. It's the most excited I've ever been writing a review, trying to cram everything about the fuckin' thing in there. It's a mess just like all the others, but hey it's an update!

And if you're sick of hearing me babble on and on about Contra in that review, well you ain't seen nothin' yet. What do I mean by that? You'll find out sometime in the near future.

Fuck yes! Good Eats is on! Alton Brown rocks. He makes food fun!


SMPS Presents: The Top 25 Games of All-Time: REDUX
November 20th, 2007

Here it is! The moment some of you have been waiting three months for. The moment I finally shut the fuck up about it and post it.

The Top 25 Games of All-Time: REDUX!

There was quite a fucking turnout for this thing. Much better than last time and I'd like to thank everyone for taking time to participate and do a list.

There's TWELVE lists in all! Two are currently MIA due to some minor technical issues, but those will be up very soon.

If there's a problem with your list, tell me about it. I spot-checked everything I could and everything appears to be working.

That should keep you busy for a while. I'm fuckin spent.


For Those Who've Waited Three Months
November 19th, 2007

Alright, the due date has come and gone for the Top 25 article. I'm only awaiting the arrival of a couple late submissions while I finish up work getting everything else in order. So, for those who have waiting god damn forever for this thing, here's a progress report of what I'm finishing up:

-Three of the lists (2 pending) to be edited into xml. Only takes about 45 minutes for each.

-Adding links to the Flash-based select menu to everyone's articles. No longer than 10 minutes.

-Create image-mapped menu for those who don't want to use the Flash article selection menu.

-Final spot-check of all articles to make sure all images are working and that there are no major coding errors.

The current goal is to have everything pulled together and ready by Tuesday night or after noon Wednesday. Barring any unnatural occurrences, I don't see any reason that it should go past that.

If your name is not on the following list for turning in a completed article (of course that means if you did one!), you need to email me immediately (socksmakepeoplesexy.mailbag [a-t] or polly [a-t] so we can work something out:

The Hutch
LoTR Dan
EB Minion
decoy octopus

Baq to werq!


Final Week's Notice and Check-in
November 11th, 2007

If you're the kind that pays attention to things, then you know that this is the final week you have to finish and send in your submission for The Top 25 Games of All Time v2.0 article doohickey we've been going on about for the last 2 months or so. November 18th. That's the date. Remember it. Love it.

Just so we're all clear, I wanna do a little check-in type deal to make sure everyone that's sent me a list has gotten through. It's probably kinda spoilerish, but with an article this big I don't wanna take any chances of leaving someone out due to a technicality. If your name isn't on the following list for sending a NEW or REVISED Top 25 article please re-send an email to either:
polly [ at ]

The second address is just a temporary failsafe. Please don't send any future submissions beyond the top 25 list to this address.

The List
The following articles have already been received and edited into xml:
The Hutch
EB Minion
LoTR Dan

As I said, if your name's not up there, resend to one or both of the addresses mentioned. I'll always reply to you if it's a submission.

For others not on the list that participated in the previous version of the article: if I don't receive an updated article from you on the 18th, I'll just bring your previous list into the new format.

I hope to god that covers it all. I just woke up so this shit's probably all over the place, but a few read-throughs wouldn't hurt your peabob little brains anyway.
