Balls to Venter being all smug about being on time. I live in a different (and, I might add, VASTLY SUPERIOR) time zone and spat out no less than two review today. If I wasnít staff, and they were allowed, they would have come first and second today. Except only one review per person.

See that? Thatís an original way to reillustrate the rules. Man, Iím so awesome.




FIRST
The Getaway (PS2) Wolfqueen

Hereís an odd phrase: This person also decided itíd be a good idea to totally forego any sort of plot whatsoever, allowing the player a choice on whether he or she followed it or simply rampaged through the city.

You say thereís no plot, then say that the player has the choice to follow it or not. Iím complaining early because this review really does highlight how far youíve come since you stumbled through Xena way back when. Thereís no real killer lines to point out, no poetic prose; what you do is deliver a solid review that tells me what I need to know about the game and rarely makes any mistakes in doing so. I know the gameís frustrating and I know why. I know what works and what doesnít, and I know why. And you intertwine the plot throughout everything; nothing is overbearing.

Good job.

SECOND
Gleylancer (GEN) Dagoss

Oh, Iím on to you. Want to sub on my week and get some advanced feedback on how to up your BWHY score? Not on my watch, bucko. You just get the placement and will have to wait on your feedback.

Thatís how I roll. With valid excuses that let me do less work.

THIRD
Lost Winds (WII) Disco

The review is a little jumpy in a way Iíve never seen before. You tend to say ďThis is good but then hereís a bad thing. This game is bad, but then hereís a good thing.Ē and so on. I like all the stuff in between, and you describe the game well within this odd structure, but it feels like being on a see-saw, Iím constantly bobbing up and down.

Thatís not to say itís not effective, though. I find myself really liking how the game seems to work, what with drawing in gusts of wind. But you donít let the novelty sell you and point out the negatives convincingly. Itís a very solid review held down only by something Iím probably the only person that it bothers in the first place. Sorry!




Epsiga threw out a kooky little review that VM is too geeky even to acknowledge despite the dedication and we were treated to another solid review from Zipp, whoís review did run on a little too long at points (and misuses itís instead of its now and then), but was still informative and for the PS3, which, Iím told, is a change! Good week this time around, kids; be sure to give Suskie hell next turn around.


For us. For them. For you.

I didn't know this was your week. Now I just feel unloved that I don't comments.

Wolfqueen's review totally deserved to win.

Good RotW. I like it when these things are on time because it makes the entire event that much better. I'm also glad WQ won. I proofread this review for her, but I only directed her to make minor edits. I think she did a fine job.

I haven't read the other two reviews that placed, but I will when I can. Congrats to everyone involved.

I probably won't sub anything for Suskie to read over this week because I'm still returning from my self-imposed reviewing vacation, but we'll see if anything turns up.


I don't have to boost my review resume because I have a real resume.

Wow. Thanks, guys! I honestly didn't expect to win this round - I thought disco's was better than mine - but then again, I always say this. And then I always get proven wrong.

Congrats to everyone else, too.
