Part of the approval process involves creating that thread. Since the review must be tied to a specific thread, we make sure all the links work.

...Oh. I didn't think to make a Red Alert 2 thread before I submitted the review, so I left that field blank. Is that going to be problematic?

To clarify on the threads thing: when you submit a review, it will not have a thread. But when we approve that review, whoever does the action will create the thread and links appropriately.

"All of Christian life is ceaseless worship of God the Father, through the mediatorship of God the Son, by the indwelling power of God the Spirit, doing what God commands in Scripture, not doing what God forbids in Scripture, in culturally contextualized ways, for the furtherance of the Gospel, when both gathered for adoration, and scattered for action, in joyous response to God's glorious grace."
- Mark Driscoll

"Believers do not pray with the view of informing God about things unknown to Him, or of exciting Him to do His duty, or of urging Him as though He were reluctant. On the contrary, they pray in order that they may arouse themselves to seek Him, that they may exercise their faith in meditating on His promises, that they may relieve themselves from their anxieties by pouring them into His bosom; in a word, that they may declare that from Him alone they hope and expect, both for themselves and for others, all good things."

A friend of mine is planning on snatching up a copy for his Wii. Perhaps I can mooch off his system and write up a summary afterwards.

I'll do most of the Warioware games except for Smooth Moves. But I'll get a Wii in about a month so that will be good then! ;)

Just a quick question. I submitted a review for a video game, and I'm waiting for it to get posted. About how long does that take, and is there anything else I need to do first?

Until another staff member who's also played the game reads over it and puts it up, or otherwise some serious digging needs to be done into the game in question.

So really, it varies.

That's precisely the case. I wouldn't need to post except that after looking at your review it seems fine (though a slightly longer main review wouldn't hurt). Whenever we have someone that can approve it, yours should go up quickly.

Hmm...haven't quite finished Super Mario Sunshine (and we've had it for a couple of years now, lol), but I can do a review once my bro and I finish it.

I would have done a longer main review, but I didn't want to risk any spoilers.

Just a reminder: this thread is for requesting that games be reviewed, not requesting to review a given game. If you have a game you'd like to do, write the review at your leisure and send it. The chances of two people sending the same one are rather low, and there's no point in claiming a game.

One quick question: So does a staff member have to have played the game before the review can be approved? What if there's a game that none of the staff members have played?
