New Typo Thread

Postby VideoGameCritic » February 22nd, 2011, 1:24 pm

I usually have a reader who alerts me to typos in my reviews, but he's not always available.  I want to invite the rest of you to let me know if you find any typos or mistakes in my reviews - new or old!

You can always let me know via the feedback link, but in the past I've found success in having a thread that allow users to easily chime in.  So let's get it started!

It's not a typo, but all the titles on the PS2 overview page except the S section are shown as null.

At the bottom of the front page, the System Index, the Nintendo DS is missing.

Since you asked......

In your review of Friday the 13th for the NES you refer to "six camp councilors".  It should be "counselors".

Good job guys.  I added the DS link and fixed the Friday the 13th review.

Hey Critic, was just scrolling through the PS1 reviews and noticed an awkward line in your GTA review.  It's the second sentence:

"It wasn't a best-seller however Grand Theft Auto 3 gave the series its third dimension."

Probably was intended to read:
"It wasn't a best-seller, however, until Grand Theft Auto 3 gave the series its third dimension."

Somebody already mentioned this in another thread, but in the Astro Battle for the Astrocade review, you say the game is an impressive Space Invaders clone because of its 1977 release date. However, Space Invaders was released in 1978.

Things I suggest adding to the text are enclosed by “|”, and the brackets are sugestions for taking something out of the text.


Airlock for 2600: “... instead |of| water gradually filling ...”


Amidar for 2600: “This has got to be the saddest looking video-game gorilla[s] ever” / This game also needs a chicken icon.


Bermuda Triangle for 2600: “The real danger|s| are laser beams ...” / “While returning items to the surface should you net 600 points ...” This sentence seems to need a comma after “surface” or some other adjustment.


Blackjack for the 2600: “... which also contain|s| Blackjack.”


Bumper Bash for the 2600: “Not bad|,| but not the best.”
