View Full Version : Game, Movie, Music Spotlights

What makes for a Spotlight-worthy review?

I'm only asking because I was led to believe that the Spotlights were for reviews that were well-written, and possibly funny. But do ridiculously-stupid writing also become Spotlight-worthy?

Just curious, because I see something like this (http://www.i-mockery.com/classicgames/Detailed.asp?Type=Console&ID=912), for example, and I can't help but wonder.

That's just a game we wanted to feature on the main page because a lot of people haven't played it... not because the review was really well played.

In general, the spotlight reviews are well written, funny, and/or about something we're actually interested in. So it's fairly random...

Alright. Thank you for the answer.

Do you have like a list of sorts of movies,music, or games you would liked reviewed?

Not really, but it always helps to review something that hasn't already been reviewed. Cuz if it's already been reviewed, there's a chance it's already been featured, and I never really feature the same thing twice.

I put in my A Boy And His Blob review at least a month ago. I also seen alot of other ones that aren't being put on the site. Someone has been slacking, or doesn't like those games.

No, boogie's just busy and I don't blame him for putting his life ahead of going through shitty review after shitty review.

If anyone's slacking, it's italian and I. We're supposed to be putting reviews from people like you to shame and we haven't been lately. So just for bringing this up, capn, I'm gonna make sure no one notices your review! Thanks!

hey, quit busting my balls. i have finals and absolutely no time for reviews at the moment.

I think Boogie has been busy lately, cuz he hasn't been online very much to do our weekly rounds of classic game review approvals. They'll get done soon enough though...

As for Zomboid and Italian, yeah, finish up your school shit and then you can start crankin out the reviews like usual.

I wasn't putting anyone down, I was just asking when the reviews were going to get done, because they were there for a while. This time my review is good and I want to see the Megaman and Bass review. :(
