The Gamer Limit Sunday Soapbox is a Sunday-only set of Gamer Limit articles straight from the minds of your favorite writers and editors. Think of the soapbox as a blog post or diary entry that we want you to see. Content will will be limitless, ranging from feelings about what we’ve been playing, to reactions to a piece of news.

Keep in mind that these aren’t your standard news, features and previews that you’re used to, and significantly more grounded in opinions and personal feelings. As such, you’ll be getting a much deeper look into the minds of the staff here at GL.

We encourage you to comment and respond to our Soapbox entries, however we will moderate the comments as we normally do. Enjoy!

  1. I’m kind of surprised at how well these did :)

      What a great conversion! Loved the game in ’89 and can’t beevlie I am still playing it in 2012. Absolutely great playability. You even managed to add a little through the excellent touch control, the new planet overview graphic, and the online highscore lists. Minor moans about the highscore at the top row not being synced on first play albeit being logged in and welcomed with my OpenFeint handle before start. Also the disable auto-fire button gets in the way and forces me to die some times. Maybe you could add an option to disable it in the settings? Finally, I feel that the Cope-Com intro has a quite different and somewhat cheaper modern style. Maybe just try to make that retro as well for Hybris? And please don’t get irritated by request for updated graphics and such. Just keep the retro style with blocky pixels and harsh sounds and stick as close to the originals as possible. That’s why we loved those games in the first place. They just rocked in every department (playability/code, graphics, music). Overall 95% for me

  2. They were actually very well written and quite poignant. Less like rants and more like mini-features :)

  3. What we need to do it produce stuff like that every day. I love how the second we could write 100% opinion pieces the writing poured out. :P

    Social Media does pay off for business. Actually, I just got aonther client this past week due to social media. Recently I reconnected with somebody I knew years back. Well long story short, he was impressed by my work, website and social media presence that now I’m meeting with his company’s CEO to finalize a training schedule. Only imagine if I wouldn’t had connected or taken the time on FB and Linked In to share my knowledge.As always, I really like your straight forward and helpful posts!!!Elizabeth

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

    Howdy I am so happy I found your website, I really found you by accident, while I was looking on Askjeeve for something else,
    Anyways I am here now and would just like to say kudos for a incredible post
    and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all
    at the minute but I have book-marked it and also included your RSS
    feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a lot more,
    Please do keep up the superb work.

    naturally like your website but you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to
    inform the reality then again I’ll surely come back again.

    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
    it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple
    adjustements would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Appreciate it

    This is the right web site for everyone who wishes to understand this topic.
    You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not
    that I actually will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a subject that
    has been discussed for ages. Great stuff, just excellent!

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you have
    been using? I’m having some small security issues with
    my latest website and I’d like to find something more safeguarded.

    Do you have any solutions?
