Hey Retro Redress! I really like your blog, and your work in general. I checked out some of your work for The Well Red Mage, and I really liked those pieces also. For those who don’t know Retro Redress, it’s a blog about regrets and second chances.
I think we all have played more games than we can count. For some reason, maybe a few of those games just didn’t feel right for you, and you just stopped playing it. Maybe it was the difficulty (see Retro Redress’ Ninja Gaiden post), or the mechanics, or maybe you regret playing the game at all. For me, I stopped playing Xenoblade Chronicles X because I got tired of the endless xp grind, and the difficulty, and etcetera etcetera. Retro Redress gets that. Retro Redress’ purpose is to find games that Retro Redness just didn’t like, or stopped playing for some reason. I personally love the idea. Retro Redness is on a quest to redeem games that deserve redemption (Altered Beast), and bury games that should be forgotten (The Flintstones).
I enjoyed reading your redresses, but I also liked your responses for the Creative Christmas and the 30 Day Video Game Challenge. I especially enjoyed your response to the Day 29 Question of the 30 Day Video Game Challenge. The question was: A Game You Thought You Wouldn’t Like, But Ended Up Loving? Your response was Fallout 3. I think I enjoyed the post so much just because the exact same thing happened to me. I remember that one time someone gave me a simple delivery quest and I ended up negotiating with vampires. Fallout 3 is a game where almost anything can happen.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I wish to declare how much I love Retro Redress’ blog, both the idea and the writing. Is that too much to ask?
