    All-Star Madness  

[07/12/2002]   Well, not really. It's kinda ironic that my hometown got to host the recent Major League All-Star game, as our hometown team is horrid. Regardless, this is a city that tries its best to maximize tourism during our (short) summer months. So far, so good...

Another group that capitalizes on the summer months is our readers, as this is the perfect time to get through those epic games. We all know what we're doing with our vacation (*ahem*). Regardless, take a look at the latest summer batch. To our American readers, a belated Independence Day.

We require our reviews to be a certain lengths for a few reasons, one of them being so we can fit the text on our handy template. Nevertheless, our FAQ also has some pointers as to how you can extend those reviews to the recommended length. Two huge things that should help out - make sure to cover all the points of the game (Visuals, Plot, Interface, etc.), and elaborate in detail on those aspects if you liked (or disliked) them. Covering all the topics will usually get you the necessary length, but if not - a flame or two on a particular aspect of the game will almost always help (and add some controversy as well :) ).

Amish: Congratulations to Robust Stu for hitting Bronze status - it's good to see that category gain another member (with material for the venerable Quest for Glory series as well). Also, a nod to Red Raven - could he be achieving Blue status in the near future? RPGamer's resident import guru Tony Green gives his opinion on a recent GBA title, as well as our News Head, Andrew Long, and his opinion on Golden Sun.
