Without pictures, I doubt I would bother to read or be potentially "sold" on any game. Some users here are frankly putting up like new HCG101 article-quality posts and it's amazing. If you're still on AOL dial up, it's time to relocate.

And yeah it's easy to block animated avatars. I've done that myself.

Good job not addressing the actual criticism there and instead making up your own.

HG101 articles generally have a better text to pic ratio and an actual layout with a sidebar for more pics, which is a lot less distracting and bloating.

"I don't like images and can't find summaries" is all I got out of the last page from you. Can't help that.

But thank you. I tried really hard with my post above there that exudes effort.

Ok and can you point to where I say that it's because I'm on dial up? Yes, you can learn basic english and not being a douche for no reason.

you mad bro?

chillax: spill no anger over an online video game forum.

I tend to try to do concise 1 paragraph reviews most of the time. Then a couple of times a year at most, I’ll do a super in-depth thing. I think people read both *shrug*?

If you don't like long reviews with images, about this thread? That's kind of our thing in this thread.

I mean, /I/ write long reviews with no images, but I haven't beaten a game in like two months *glances at Youkai Watch 3* so I've been fairly absent here lately :b

I don’t really care for random images or large images. An image should be just large enough to convey the desired impression. It should also be carefully selected to illustrate key points of the review or otherwise contribute meaningfully. Rando screencaps are a waste of my time and data. If a picture is worth a thousand words, they should be helpful and on-topic words, and not pointless ones.

No that would be xeogred and exhuminator, who tried to misrepresent me because they don't like the differing opinion. So maybe tell them to chill instead? Thanks.

I never talked to you, about you, or even responded to you, period. Leave me out of your assumptions and negative behavior.
