Even if they're awesome, links break up the flow of a review. So you have to make damn sure what you're linking to is worth clicking on. Otherwise, you waste my time. In the Sonic Riders review: The aging actor in progressively lamer films link So, the joke is Tom Cruise in a dress. Get it? He's a guy, but in a dress. Dude, Tom Cruise has gone SO far beyond tranny weirdness, that picture of him actually seems normal. And not particularly worth seeing. So nicely discovered for us This is a picture of a diver in a speedo tucked, with his ass in the air. Great. Now my gross looking guy picture quotient is full. This brings up a tangential point: how gay the links have become. Now, some of my best friends are gay. But that doesn't mean they're entertaining, or at least, not due to their gayness. I've gone through several phases with the latest GR links. First was "Ha! That's gay!" Then just "That's gay." Then "Gay." Now I have no response. I am completely gayed out. These links lately have been replacing GR's edge with man ass. Ass isn't funny. It's just ass. You have three options. At the very least, post some hot girl asses, just to change things up. At best, only link to things that are funny or interesting. And if you aren't sure what the hell to do, don't link at all. smack himself into a brick wall... This is a link to Wile E. Coyote holding a sign and looking pathetic. This is a coffee mug image, that belongs on porcelain around cheap coffee in depressing office spaces. Why did you show me this? Did you know that Tom Parker is a funny, charming writer? Why are you putting this dookie in his reviews? Revenge against nintendo What is worse, the thought that someone at GR made this image? Or that their lazy ass found it, and stuck it in an otherwise fine review? Discuss. bling Yes, it is a blinging psp. Yawn. needs the royalites This is worth linking to! But it should be at the beginning of the review, where Tom is wondering what happened to Sonic. Instead, it is at the end, the last in a long line of ill-conceived links. And what does this even have to do with royalties? What's more, Tom didn't ask you to put these links in. They were edited in. When you edit, you're supposed to make something better. But these links need to be edited out, because they are awful.
