I recently subbed the 1/10 CC review over on 'Spot to give it a go in the next reviewspotting issue (ETA 2010) and it already has six negative votes towards it (and one plus, which I'll just assume was Ben)
And now I have this PM:
I respect your opinion but if you expect people to take you seriously you cannot just go throwing around 1/10's. A review final score should be unemotional and based of facts to support the final score. I don't feel that the aspects in your review support a 1/10 score though they do support a low one. With all due respect (serioiusly) do yourself a favor and avoid 1/10's.
I'll consider myself told. The fellow who has put me in my place goes by the name of Telekenesis123 and I urge bored readers to take the time out to check out his
elongated good and bad list single review written to understand why he can lecture the most decorated reviewer in CCU history
I can see this becoming an ongoing saga.

Uh, all I got was a broken link.

LoL. Wow. I didn't know he had one revview. I would've thought that someone who expressed himself as intellectual as he did (lol - amazing) and who would even be so brash as to give that kind of advice to someone who clearly has a lot of experience would have more than one review.
Nevermind what I said on AIM; this guy's just dumb. XD

What you don't understand, EmP, is a 1 from an HG user can be like a 6 from the GameSpot crowd for some really fucked up reason.

Very true. I wish I could remember the names of the sites and/or magazines, but some reviewers out there use 7 as the score for an average game. Seems a little skewed to me.

If the review is just a c-'n'-p job of the usual, I'm not surprised it gets so much negative feedback. CC love aside, it ain't yer best, pard.

No? It's one of my favourties. For nothing else, every time I bring it up, Jason hates me just a little bit more. I think I'm only two more CC-hatin' topics away from a letter bomb.
I figured it had a reasonable shot at winning reviewspotting over there (which would be my fifth and give me huge gloating rights) and it was up no more than a week before said PM came along. Still, it's nice to know people are reading my stuff.

Why's honestgamer hate you every time you bring that up? >.> I don't see anything wrong with that review.

Indeed, I was the one who gave the review a thumbs up.
RS 78 was just recently posted, like, nearly a month late. Just two more months to go until 80!
