Great feedback; I agreed with about 95% of these and fixed them.
I'm wondering if some of those typos may have been there for 15 years!

In the Super Runabout review (Dreamcast), you write "Super Runabout encourages wonton destruction". Unless you're talking about annihilating Chinese dumplings ( :mrgreen: ), I think you mean wanton -- though you do mention food and Chinatown immediately thereafter: maybe you were hungry at the time?
