Anybody else not like my use of expletives?

They never bugged me. If anything, I'd assume that the [expletive] is more of a strain on you as opposed to just typing out "darn" or "crap." Although, I see it a lot in your revies so you're probably used to typing it by now.

If you can't get your point across without cursing you are intellectually lazy.  Also a recent study says cursing all the time increases your levels of stress.

Actually it's a grammatical intensifier.  And since it's ambiguous it allows me to express strong feelings without being profane.  So now who's intellectually lazy?

It's kind of my trademark.  You need something to set yourself apart when there's a million other people writing game reviews.

Dave,

Track down an import copy of Afterburner II for the TG-16. It's a pretty good version and easily better than the Genesis edition.

While on topic, Afterburner 3 for the Sega CD is also pretty solid.

Good reviews!!

I remember as a kid there was a trick to Afterburner, where you hold your ship to one side, and you can bypass all enemies without getting hit until around level 11 (I forget which level to be exact).

I find the use of expletives funny, but anyway...

Really liked the reviews. Made me really interested in trying to track down a copy of Line of Fire. Is the game hard to understand at any parts due to being an import? Is the SMA region free?

I have the Sega 3d glasses and haven't had much of a chance lately to use them. I think Zaxxon 3D was the last one that I played and that was a blast.

Mine was the European version, so it was in English and played fine on my console.  Same with Outrun 3D, which I have a review of coming up.
