Description

It's about time we had another review drive, so hey, let's do this!


Rules
- Write reviews for games that are hosted on the site (they must abide by current review standards).
- Only reviews added to the site over the course of the time period will count.
- There is no limitation to what kinds of games you review, though there is an extra badge if you review more than 5 non-reviewed games.



How to Submit

To enter and receive credit for this event, please do the following:
Step 1: Sign up for the event by clicking "Sign Up" at the top of the user list:





Step 2: Write your review(s), keeping in mind our submission rules. Please make the reviews as insightful and engaging as possible! A member of staff may proofread the review for minor spelling and grammatical faults or inconsistencies.


Step 3: Submit your review(s) to the appropriate game page(s).






Be sure to include your score (if any) and an appropriate title:





Step 4: Wait for the review to be approved. It may take up to a week. You might receive feedback on how to improve your review before approval. If the time elapses before your review is added, I (Liberty) will make a note as to which reviews are still in the queue and count them towards your total when they are accepted. (They must be of proper quality. Spamming the queue with shit/placeholder reviews will see them ignored.)

Step 5: Submit the approved review to this event page by clicking the "submit" button on the top-right corner of the page.





Step 6: Repeat for each qualified review. To receive credit, each review must be submitted to this page by the 1st of March deadline!






Achievements

Badges will be given based on the amount of reviews you complete. Each badge has a set amount necessary to unlock that badge and the more reviews you submit, the better MS you can get. You can gain more than one badge, too, with each badge giving a set amount of MS to add up.
The increments are as follows:

01 Review.. - 05 MS - Quina
03 Reviews - 15 MS - Quina + Eiko
06 Reviews - 25 MS - Quina + Eiko + Amarant
09 Reviews - 35 MS - Quina + Eiko + Amarant + Freya
12 Reviews - 45 MS - Quina + Eiko + Amarant + Freya + Steiner
15 Reviews - 55 MS - Quina + Eiko + Amarant + Freya + Steiner + Garnet
20 Reviews - 85 MS - Quina + Eiko + Amarant + Freya + Steiner + Garnet + Zidane

If 5 of those reviews are from games that didn't have a review BEFORE the event, then you will get a special Vivi badge worth 20 MS.
(If two people review the same reviewless game, they will both count as long as the game didn't have a review before the event officially began.)

Hooray! :D
Reviews aren't my usual thing, but I'll give it a shot!

And hooray for the FF9 theme! I seriously want these badges :DDD

i didn't realize ffrk's kuja sprite was so fab. damn.

what does garnet's badge look like? if it's her hot short-haired version, i'll go for her. otherwise i'll just go for freya
Hmm... I just need to do six reviews to get 6000 MS. The hard part is decided which six to review...

Edit: Nvm, I'll just work on finishing up a demo for Tristy and maybe a kind soul or two will review it ( and push up that awful 2.5 current score ;_; ).

No Beatrix, no deal.
Unfortunately, she didn't exist in the style of those sprites. :<

Exciting, but ultimately pointless.

I'm all over this. I'll try to review some platformers and stuff since RPGs would be take way too much time.

I might be able to fit in 1 of these. I feel like I haven't made a game review in a long time.

I'm certainly gonna try to go for 5-6. Though yeah, I do think a week is a wee bit tight.

EDIT: ...Though I wasn't around for past versions of this, so if a week is standard for these, then please forgive my ignorance :x
Ya gotta have a life, y'know.
That's a really discouragingly high bar to set. One per day is a lot, but well possible to mold into your daily life. Two is really tough. And three .. yuck.
It's like spending two entire days of working/playing time throughout the week on it - not counting sleep! THAT IS A LOT.

The only real possible or in any way comfortable/worthwhile way for me would be to play and review as much as I can over the weekend or otherwise beforehand and submit that puffer later (or possibly reviewing games I had already played in the past) ... That's sad. *sigh*
Really. I usually love achievments, but that's just .. no fun to even look at. .. my motivation is drained and it hasn't even started yet :'(

@SgtMettool I haven't been around for too long, but there were different review events over different periods of time - usually longer. Two months sometimes, with achievments counting submitting a review throughout a week. One. I think the one valentine's or sweetie themed one was about a two weeks or so? That was number-based.. but I didn't have any time for that one, so not so sure about the details.

I agree that anyone with a job or a family or any kind of social obligations is probably not going to hit 20 reviews in one week.

How many did Deckiller do that one time? I think it was more than 20 XD
Reviewrim? I wasn't there at the time, but was one massive haul it seems.
And checking, yes, decky did 24. But then the event ran 2-3 weeks... with an achievment per review with 10-30 ms and chances to win actual prizes.. so ... yeah.
And upon checking, the strawberry review jam had 13 reviews at the top tier with 2 weeks plus a few days as a timeframe.
Who the hell is going to meet that goal?

.. yeah. I just wanna sit in a corner n cry.
And I was psyched for it, too.

Haha, wow, that one gave out a 10-30 ms achievement per review too.

Damnit, and right after I submit my first review in forever. Can I please use my AEI review for this event?

Also someone should alert Pizza about this. I'm sure he'd love a Freya achievement.

That's exactly what I was thinking. We should let pizzy know~
