Ha, yeah there is (now at least)

I had implemented a filter that changed any references to all allaboutthegames to work-safe.info. but then today I reversed it and forgot about how it would affect things.

Ah yeah, just read the other thread.

I for one am glad to have the proper AATG back, even though the circumstances may not have been ideal.

Because we're glory hounds, revelling in our own clever humour and wordsmithing, digging our articles in the vain hope that someone out there in the WorldWideApathyWeb might read what we've written and make a concise judgement on whether a game's worth buying or whether they should keep their hard earned cash in their pocket.

Well that, and where the hell else could I possibly stick a Bratz review without being publicly ridiculed! Sometimes it's a good thing the front page doesn't get read very often.

There's no justice, just us :)

Sy, all contributor's efforts are greatly appreciated - honestly. We're just such a small potatoes site though, and it's hard to get anywhere on our own so we do need your help and everyone else's. These Lambourghinis and hookers are extremely expensive and don't pay for themselves.

No wonder you reviewed a Bratz game. Desperate times call for desperate measures, eh? :)

It was something of a personal challenge. Could I possibly play then review something that falls so far outside my gaming remit that it's virtually wrapped back round and become playable again.

The answer is a firm no. But somewhere out there, there's someone who has been waiting for a review of that game and has been putting off purchasing it because no one else on thar intarnet would touch it with a barge pole.

So I did

I think it's something a lot of reviewers should do. It's weirdly therapeutic.

Did you get my email with my address on it by the way? G-mail seems to be playing silly bastards at the moment.

Barely got time to play the games at all, never mind actually finish one and review it. :(

No time off over Christmas either, thanks to me using up all of my holiday and lieu days earlier in the year!

I only buy the best games of a year so I hardly ever more then 4 games new games. By the time I have everyone else will have finished them at least twice.

2005: 2
2006: 0
2007: 3
2008: 3 (not counting GTA as that was second hand and not that great)

Edit: That lists excludes games I won or got as presents.

I thought you did this with every FPS game that came out? ;)

Thing is I know I'd play it like...twice online.

You're right, madness lies that way. Better to suffer the wrath of grumpy colleagues (who only want to play online with me because they know I'm perfect cannon fodder) than to waste 30 quid on something I don't need (not that this has stopped me buying the likes of GOW2 etc)

Exactly, save it for something with a bit more longevity, something like Bratz maybe?
