[04/01/2009] In case you hadn't figured it out already, the Pokémon Platinum review posted today was, indeed, an April Fool's Day joke (noooo, you mean you're not a deranged member of PETA? I never would've figured that out!) There will be a real review of the game up in a week or so, either from me or Firemyst, depending on who finishes the game and writes a review first. Considering that I've decided to take a pause at the 8th gym in order to meticulously EV train a single Pokémon (a Yanmega, for those wondering. Yanma was one of my favs in Silver/Gold), he may be finished before me.
Lucky for you, we have a total of six spoof reviews for your enjoyment, including my own. Macstorm brings us a review of that age-old MMO "Work", while JuMeSyn has been playing the strategy title "Politics". We also have reader reviews for Wild ARMs Alter Code: F, Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. Fatman and Little Boy, and of course that curious PC sleeper hit, Secrets of the Inner Office. Enjoy!
On a final note, to all reviewer applicants out there, this will be your last opportunity to submit reviews. Those who have submitted reviews that have not been posted yet, they will be posted in the next update. However, once the next update is over, we will be making our decisions. Regardless of who we select to interview for a staff position, I would like to encourage all our new reviewers to continue sending reviews in. We always like to have additional opinions on the games we cover from our readers.
