I'm interested in getting some constructive criticism on my review style (or perhaps some not so constructive). Hell, any comments would be good.

Would it be appropriate (and/or would anyone be interested) to post a review here for feedback?

... or should I just go f' off or something? :D

<laugh> I definitely don't want to piss Luquado off by flooding his e-mail with dumb-ass questions like:

"Did my review app suck that bad?"

"Have you read it yet? Hugh!? Hugh!!!!!?"

"Why do boogers taste salty?"

I figure if the good people :D of the NC forums think my review(s) suck, I can leave quietly before I cause any more damage.

Other than the reviews I wrote for the app I sent beginning of November, never.

My reviews have been limited to telling the guys at work what's so great about the map(s) I'm installing in their copy of UT ;)

Hmmm...

I could answer "Blood red," but that'd be cliche.

How about lizard green? Get it?! Twrecks-trex-lizard HA!

Damn, I'm dumb.

If you sent Fuzzbuster your app, then no one saw your reviews.
No reviews... No reviews of your reviews to be viewed by you, you would be reviewer you.

From the app page:

D.) Send your applications to me, Luquado, personally. My e-mail address is luquado@beyondunreal.com. The subject should be: "Nali City Review Application" so I can auto-filter your application into the separate folder. Can you follow directions? =)

I followed the directions :)

... anyway, I grew some balls (instead of posting silly "want to read my review?" messages) and just went ahead and posted one of my three reviews to the user reviews forum if anyone is interested: http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=95100

Chrysaor, I guess that means I'll have the pleasure of reading your review shortly too :D

NC just ****canned (I can only hope :p) one Matterminator - my advise on reviewing would be to read every review he, 'deathlock', 'sinister sam' and some 'biggles' guy did and do the exact opposite :)

Now wait just one second! Are you sure you read the review? :D

An unfortunate design decision on the other hand, is the overall slime-colored lighting.

With all green lighting effects used throughout, you spend your game quite literally in a can of pea soup.

The author's favorite color is green - as he went on to create the map DM-SLIMERING :rolleyes:

Better than to try and have failed than to not try at all. It's not like I was some newbie aspiring to become part of the 1337 or something and would be heartbroken at not "getting in" :D

I'm just aching to see some of the thousands of unreviews maps reviewed - by me or someone so I don't have to just download them blind.
