[QUOTE=Den]The "compliment" in the new Arkham Asylum review should be "complement."  Thanks.[/QUOTE]

I wish I had a nickel for every time I confused complement with compliment.
Thanks for the heads up.

The March 8 VGC news entry says "I've upgraded by" when I think you meant "my".

I caught up on the typos - thank you.

I searched my reviews for "compliment" and found about 42 cases where I misused it (should have been complement).  I think I used it correctly twice.  Ugh.  Oh well, it's fixed now.

Don't be shy about pointing out anything else you find!

Keith Courage in Alpha Zones (TG-16) review, "pruchase" advice should be purchase.

In the Playstation 3 system review, "a fan kicks it when playing Blu-ray discs."

Also, I noticed that all of the other Playstations and Sony systems are listed in the top drop-down toolbar-kinda-thingy as Sony whatever, but the Playstation 4 is just "Playstation 4."  Not exactly a typo, but maybe worth looking into?

Thanks guys - I'm caught up now.

I changed the PS4 on the menu to "Sony Playstation 4" to be consistent with the others.

Also I shortened Coleco Colecovision to just "Colecovision" because I think that makes more sense.

In the Arcadia review for Robot Killer, 'You man runs' is intended to be 'Your man run'. 

Neat review there, by the way...the 'slow motion' issue was one I had trouble with when making my own Commodore 64 games in BASIC.  The games, when run in BASIC had to go through the BASIC interpreter, and things like enemy laser beams were molasses slow.  Like that original Star Trek episode where people could just step out of the way of the phaser beams.

(...say what you want for classic Star Trek, but the wardrobe designer was A+)

By compiling the program first into assembly, the code ran much quicker.  Wonder if something like that was going on here.   I guess not, but why is the game so darn slow?  The system could handle a lot, given the Space Invaders clone, and Berzerk should be simpler still.   Seems like it was on is way to be a terrific Berzerk clone, and something happened.

It may seem like nitpicking, but...

In the Playstation 2 review of the Namco Museum, you incorrectly used the word disc... you spelled it "disk", like as in floppy disk.

Keep up the great reviews!

Addendum to the last post: you also used the word "disk" again in the very next review after the last one, this time in the Playstation 2 game Namco Museum 50th Anniversary. Perhaps this is something that should be looked into deeper.. maybe more incorrect usages of "disk" vs. "disc"?

I made the latest updates.  In the past I have used "disc" and "disk" pretty much interchangeably.  Can you guys educate me on their proper usage?
