Sometimes I forget to check the list of games that the Rom Pit has reviewed, so certain in their awfulness that I just assume they have been under the penetrating gaze of previous Romlords.

I really, really like watching people fail! I mean look at that guy, he’s a little coyote and he’s starving to death. My belly, it’s erupting! Now I want to play a game where I can torture this coyote again and again. What? Death Valley Rally for the SNES? I’ll play that!

It totally blows.” Then we high-fived and played air guitar hero. On hard.
