I think the increased prevalence in the last 15 years of political correctness and a general avoidance to offend anyone about anything hasnt helped either.

Teens dont do enough. So they sit around thinking to much and getting depressed. Or creating mini drama's like they see on the OC.  Lifes to easy for the average teen nowdays.

The single best solution is to get a job. A real job. Prefferably physical labor.

Failing that, get involved in clubs, sports etc.

Most of them are just bluffing anyway for the attention. Few are truly suicidal.

"Well, if you listen to Coheed and Cambria, they do have emo lyrics.

But I do agree with most of the other stuff."
like fuck they do.

The music is based on a story. Theres not a shred of emo lyrics in CoCa.

Unless your going to label 50% of bands emo.

I just got the game in the mail. Played for a couple of hours.

The game is fine.

Im wondering, would game sites have jumped the gun and got all ridiculous treating the preview code like a review if this was any other game?

Like the 1up feature which went through things that needed to be fixed before it was released.

The games not great, but its fine.

Im starting to wonder that with the onslaught of awesome games in the last few years whether we are all getting a little spoilt.

WARNING A GIANT TOY IS APPROACHING!

I like the way you can tilt the ship. The graphics and colours are decent. The enemies are interesting enough considering they are blocks. The game does a good job coming at you with different enemies and projectiles, it keeps it entertaining and fast paced.

I found it difficult to get under ships quick enough to catch them, which it seems becomes pretty important to surviving past the first level.

I sure wouldnt mind if the difficulty didnt scale up so much after the first level. But then again, mabe there is only 5 levels?
