Hello, the BYOND anime guild has a variety of features and purposes to get all players of all anime based games to interact in an attempt to better the games and experience itself, so on that note im going to mention my sadness that we havnt had a review worth posting in weeks.
First off, i am always reluctant to post a review that has no pictures. I pretty much make it a rule that they are required and yet out of all the reviews ive recieved this month, none of them bothered to attach a picture. Your making a review! what is more valuable than a good screenshot?
Secondly, i disabled grading metrics and i really discourage people to continue using them despite that fact. Saying i give this game a 4 on originality and a 10 overall even though we decided to go without these metrics is incredibly annoying for me. Due to the fact that people are paranoid about administration abuse here, i cannot edit a review and i can opt to either post it in its entirety or reject it, i havnt rejected any reviews based directly on this reasoning yet but in any review that is too weak to make it this is one of its flaws.
Also please, please dont send me reviews that are two lines long. 90% of reviews i get are 2 lines or under. Reviews are not the same as comments, these are supposed to be organized unbias accounts for a game in its entirety. Saying "The best byond players play on Naruto Ultimate Fire Aliance 3" and then hitting submit will and has made me sad because i waste so much time opening up reviews with high expectations only to see that. If you dont want to make a good review dont submit one, okay guys?
Make nice reviews, put them into word so you can check your spelling and grammar before posting it, remember that you dont want me to trash your review because of spelling errors! you spent time writing it so polish it up. Game reviews have to be fair! A review isnt just saying nice things but it isnt also just saying bad things, you need to play the game a lot and give a fair review that is constructive, key word, constructive to the owner of that game or the people looking for a game to play. If neither group benefits from your review because its more of a rant or a super bias opinion with no underlying facts then it will not get accepted!
On this note I hope to encourage those of you who do scoff and think to yourselves that you can do better, to do it! Please guys make some reviews, it means the world to game developers and really is a good way to help the community by helping those who only get flamers and brown-nosers see an unbiased review on the game they spend time making. Dont think we wont appreciate a well thought out review, everybody in the anime guild does!
