    It's an issue with ImageShack. In some rare cases, it won't load certain images.

    Both are great, but I chose Blacksite's because the colors really stand out.

    Thing is, some games rely heavily on the story, so there does need to be plot analysis. And doing it without spoiling anything can be tricky. I hate spoilers in reviews though, so I would never do anything like that in my review.

    So if there are spoiler in the review the person can use the spoiler tags and warn above the review that this has spoilers.

    The idea of spoilers in the reviews is scary! Who wants to have the story of a game ruined for them while they are reading a review in order to help them with a purchase, ya know? Spoilers will need to go into spoiler tags for sure. But I still don't agree that spoilers are even necessary. You can talk about the general story arc without getting into details and mention the merrits of the story telling and character development etc.

    I think Ghost explained it really well in a way not to have spoilers, and his AC example a few posts above is spot on. Listen to him on this one.

    Yeah, basically, when it comes to actually detailing the story, the reviewer should do no more than provide the synopsis. But when the reviewer needs to actually critique the story, they need to restrain themselves from using specific examples, and instead must only speak of the qualities of the story.

    Glad to see Blacksite is back up in the fight. He could pull ahead.

    I think some people may be confused if they're supposed to post reviews yet. Perhaps if you write the first review and get the ball rolling, people will jump in.

    I would do a review of XCOM: Enemy Unknown but I still need to finish the game.

    Really, it's great. I just keep getting my ass kicked.
