Thanks for the comments. I really need to learn to harness my self-destructive side in this competition, as you were right, Jerec, about there being a handful of sentences that really need altered a bit.

I have this nasty habit of getting fired up about reviewing a game and blasting one out under the impression that my excitement about the game (whether in praise or to bash) will be all I need to overcome anyone. That's potentially cost me a couple of wins about every year, as it's very rare the judges have the same high opinion of that "excitement" that I do.

Good OD would have taken his time working with Rearmed and possibly had teammates proof it as a plan to use it in an upcoming week AND used a polished review for Janus. Bad OD typed up his review of Rearmed, briefly proofed it and posted it Wednesday afternoon; partied with friends Wednesday night; got home around 3+ hours before deadline and proceeded to enhance his buzz while proofing it again, picking a review for Jason (stuck at work) and having up to 4 IM sessions going on at once (although I think the ones with Jason and True might have not started until after deadline).

If I ever write an autobiography, I'm titled it, "What Could Have Been If I Wasn't So Damned Self-Destructive."

The answer, of course, is dull.


For us. For them. For you.

Just you wait, True. There won't be any confusion when my review tears yours limb from limb and blood and bile come spilling out of your review like... like... like too much soup in my mouth!


Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

Yeah, that probably is true. My self-destructive nature does give me all my charm. Chicks dig walking trainwrecks.

I should also mention I found the judge's in depth commentary to be really helpful. I think I now have a good idea of what's expected.
