Anyone feel like he's phoning it in lately

I mean I just put more effort into that collection of links than he did into all of his articles in the last month

Yeah, I have to agree. They've been pretty low effort, and they don't really make a joke most of the time.

The Japanese box art is the one that sticks out the most to me, since it seems like wasted potential.

It was terrible but not as bad as the Japanese box art one, which was an absolute nadir

The man wrote the Legend on Legend article, which is my all time favorite front page piece. I think he's earned a pass for life.

If I could have it back
All the time that we wasted
I'd only waste it again
If I could have it back
You know I'd love to waste it again
Waste it again and again and again

He's been putting out two articles per week now, I don't they all can be good. And most of the articles you linked are Video Game Article which tend to be way sillier and first-degree jokes than anything particularly well-thought out. Even when he's just running down a list of punch-lines, I feel the thing is validated enough if one of them gets me to smile.

I disagree with you on the SNES and GOTY articles, they were both funny and had some extremely good jokes. The tweet one was fantastic and felt like an old school front page article, but the Mega Man image was two jokes hidden between the words Mega Man and Mega Man.

Even if some of the recent Front Page News have been sub-par Video Game Articles, he's still a good front page writer. Everybody can have an off day sometimes.

I'm personally loving the current tread in articles by all the wrters.

"10 changes to X that we implemented for game X"

X in game now causes "random words" to happen
X in game now causes "random words" to happen
X in game now causes "random words" to happen
X in game now causes "random words" to happen
X in game now causes "random words" to happen

It never gets old.
