Hahaha. I can't believe you actually reviewed this game. I'd say you were forced into it, but that's just my opinion.

In all seriousness, though, I think it's good you did. I mean, I guess someone has to, even if it's not someone the game was intended for. And it makes the site more well-rounded.

At any rate, I admit to being confused about the title at the start. I was thinking this would be some random SpongeBob game with some random extra (like a minigame or something) thrown in just to keep things interesting.

Still, it's nothing I'd want to play, but it's interesting that the developers are trying new(ish) things on a younger audience.

Oh, and I do know who Danny Phantom is..... but... I really shouldn't. >____>

At the risk of aging myself, I've got to say that even my nephew (who knows all the characters) found this game a bit tedious.

Did you mean to say that the beginning of the review confused you?

I don't think so. Maybe. I'd just gone in with the impression, by reading the title, that it'd be some sort of conglommeration like I described above. So I was thinking you'd talk about that in the review, but when I saw you just talk about the Globs of Doom thing, I figured that was just the game in its entirety and the title is severely misleading.

I actually have no idea what you're talking about.

Haha. Then don't worry about it.

Well it sounded like a criticism, so I was trying to see if I saw what you were finding fault with, but I don't even understand.

Edit: Doesn't the title indicate SpongeBob has a team of Nicktoon clowns along with him? And don't I make mention of that as well in the first paragraph? Are you just tired?

Hm... Well, I read the paragraph again and got what you were saying. I think when I read it initially, I was thinking the game would be something else. Like, I was thinking there'd be a Spongebob game where you're just playing as him and doing whatever you're meant to do, but also there'd be a bonus game with it. Kind of like the Mario/Duck Hunt compilation to give a rough example. However, I only ever thought this in the first place because the title of the game seemed ambiguous, especially the word "featuring". I thought that "featuring" meant it would be two separate games - one Spongebob alone and one involving the other Nicktoons. I did not realize at the time of reading that "featuring" meant SpongeBob including the Nicktoons as one single game. Thus I had gone into the review with preconceived notions of what I would find, and after misreading the intro and not finding what I was expecting right away, I became confused only to realize my mistake as I continued reading the review.

Haha. Somehow I doubt this made things any clearer. Sorry; I have a really long-winded way of explaining things sometimes. Either way, what I'm trying to say is, yes; the confusion is entirely my fault, not yours. It's resolved and you have nothing to worry about.

I understand now what you're saying. Lewis gets "great review!" while I get criticisms based on comprehension issues you have with titles -- nice. =T Why am I writing for this site again?

=/ That's not it at all... I told you this thing was my fault, and I don't think I really intended it as a criticism at all so much as a means of expressing how silly I am sometimes.

And anyway, the rest of the review was good. All of it really now that I cleared myself up. I really didn't intend this topic to go into this much depth about one niggly thing, anyway. Really I made it to say I read it and found it interesting, if odd (though I don't mean that in a bad way), that you'd review a game like this in the first place.

Sorry for not saying everything I perhaps should have. =/ Usually I leave some form of praise, but I really only intended this to be a discussion.

This is why I don't make feedback topics. >_>

Also, you don't like Lewis's reviews?

I hear you -- no worries. And sure, I like Lewis's reviews. I even made a feedback topic for a few of them which he ignored, as far as I know.

Alright, cool. I was worried I'd offended you or something. =/

Anyway, haha. He didn't ignore them. He just took forever responding to that one FEAR topic you made.

Bloody hell. I felt the urge to scream "ZOMBIES ARE BETTER THAN SPUNGES!" into this thread for no real reason, but having read it, I feel I should probably say some proper things.

Trust me, Masters, I've had far worse criticism from WQ. She's a harsh lady - but she knows her onions. In this case, it's sort of irrelevant, since her comment was absolutely nothing to do with your writing anyway. Big misunderstanding. Big hug to make up. There you go.

"Why do I write for this site again?" - I don't know. Why do you? Probably because you're decent with words 'n' stuff and you enjoy it. And because it's got a strong community with very little bickering, so I wouldn't get too wound up about one tiny thing that - again - wasn't even relevant to your work in the first place.

As far as not responding to comments, well, I can only apologise if I've missed any. I always try to respond to feedback where I can, but occasionally I may miss stuff if the forum's particularly busy. If there's nothing to say beyond "thanks," though, I may just think it and forget to write it.

With regards to the FEAR review, I think that was the one that went live during the time when my computer was sobbing into a repair shop, and the thread was gone off the 'recent' window long before I got the PC back. I did reply in the end, when trawling through old posts, but it was a fair while after.
