It is a bit of a bummer that we haven’t seen a console release since 16th style, but like you, I haven’t completely lost hope. The fact that the series is still seeing arcade releases in Japan, with 19th on the horizon, is something.

At any rate, I know having Solid State Squad around keeps me motivated to get better at the games, so thanks for the hard work in keeping things running.

I feel a little regretful that I haven’t really had the time to completely overhaul the site like I wanted to (and develop a unified codebase that we could use across the board for IIDX, Pop’n and other games) but I’m happy that we’ve been able to keep it going and that I got the time to fix the important issues and put in a few cool features as well around 2009 or so.

Since then the IIDX community has been on a sort of hiatus – a lot of people (such as myself) still play casually but not very often, some others still play regularly, but overall the lack of a new home version since Empress almost two years ago has pretty much put things on hold. I haven’t given up hope yet that they’ll eventually revive CS IIDX in some form, but until that happens I don’t have a whole lot of motivation.

Comment on How’d this make the cut? A look at the Smithsonian’s “Art of Video Games” exhibit by aflaten http://gameovermedia.com/2011/05/06/howd-this-make-the-cut-a-look-at-the-smithsonians-art-of-video-games-exhibit/#comment-149 Fri, 13 May 2011 00:59:29 +0000 http://gameovermedia.com/?p=242#comment-149 Yep, which leaves 1-3 as completely useless byproducts. The whole Brink fiasco over the last couple of days is a prime illustration of the flaws in the review system. But yeah, this is nothing new.

Below 9, you’re underappreciated. Below 8, you’re underdeveloped. Below 7, you’re under the bargain bin. Below 6, you’re under the dumpster. I mean, when you reach those 3-5 levels, you’re already in the pantheon of bad games.

Being forced to sign into PSN to use Netflix is a real pain.

Holidays are made for hardcore gaming sessions. Now, you may actually be forced to do things in the… outside world.

That place sucks.

You can’t beat those statistics.

And use VJ Army.

And know Dan. :P

But yes, thoroughly enjoyed!
