Yes, I am alive. Apologies for the lack of updates. I'll see what I can do about that.
Biggest news is that Gamebits will be playing host to the Computer Gaming SIG of Mensa, with me as its director. Their current library of reviews will be added here, with new ones on the way, and a text- or HTML-based email newsletter coming as well. Again, I'm making this a slower process than it need be,
In more mundane matters, I won't be attending E3 this year, unfortunately. I missed the event the first year it was held (1995) and another year when I was out of the country (2000). Personal scheduling conflicts are to blame this year.
Also, one of the most popular questions I get is, "When will Konami release Karaoke Revolution expansion discs?" To such inquirers, I point you to this press release, announcing Volume 2 of what is now the Karaoke Revolution series. Still undetermined is the full song list, as well as whether this sequel will require the original disc. E3 will bring more details on this and many other matters, assuredly.
