    i see people are already blogging which is cool. you guys have a unique headstart on getting your reviews seen by the masses on the main page when go public:

    http://grbeta.bolt.com/article/index.php?type=member

    to write your own review on gr, just go to the gr review of that game and click on "write a review" in the lower right.

    I could submit it as a blog entry in the meantime I guess. Actually I'd have to write the thing first.

    URRRRRRGH!

    I just spent an hour and a half writing a review for Tales of Symphonia. I hit the preview button, and it asked me to log on. I did, and then it said that an error occured because the game I wrote a review for doesn't exist. Then I click the back button twice on my browser, and everything I had written was gone.

    Man, what a huge waste of my time.... :evil:

    Haha, always write them in Word, that way you can save em and spellcheck them. Some works for long posts.

    Whenever I've written something particularly long, I usually copy it all into a quick notepad document before I press "submit", just because that's happened so many times.

    I've got some saved on my computer, i'll put them up sometime.

    EDIT: Symphony of the Night and Kingdom Hearts reviews up, more to come. Check them out and rate them, and lemme know what you think.

    EDIT: Got Max Payne, Katamari Damacy, Metal Gear Solid and Xenosaga ones up. I see somebody rated my first two reviews last night, who was it?

    Okay, I re-wrote my review, and it took it. I do have one more little complaint, though. It didn't keep the format I wrote it in, nor the format it showed in the preview. Now all the review is is one giant paragraph. Could you do something about this?

    Use html. The <br> command, especially.

    Oh yeah, and definitely fix the review-writing logon thing. I wrote a review for descent 3, only to have it canned by the bug. Now I know to copy/paste my reviews, but it's still an annoyance.

    Can I write a review regarding a game that has not been reviewed by GR? .

    Nope. I never realised how hard it was to write a sensible review. I ends up just repeating the same things over and over againand being more trouble than it's worth, posting is much more fun

    Re: Can I....?

    If you can find an alternate page for it, yes.

    Try looking for some cheats for that game.

    That was a nice feature to include, the whole if you can find any article on the game you can write a review for it. Wait for my mega awesome review of Life Line coming soon heh.
