The new game that you added - can't remember the name off hand - in the review you comment that a baron says he'll turn around and not pay attention to what your doing.

It should really be you're.

This isn't really a typo, but a rather strange phrase:

Frank the Farmhand 2 review said:

Dr. Fred from Maniac Mansion has turned over in his LucasArts-induced grave
Since when can you "induce" a grave?:P I always thought that was called "digging"...

In my NERO review there's a bit of a shocker - "this may put some people of" should be "this may put some people off".

Isn't it "chickenman", not "The chicken man", who reviewed Gorilla? Also, shouldn't it be

Quote

You start the game by typing the names of player one and player two.
and

Quote

The thing I like most about Gorilla is that it is two players; there is no computer controlled Gorilla in this game, so it's lots of fun if you have someone to play with.
and

While its graphics and sound are not that great they are functional and suit the game well.

Talking of typos, there's also quite a lot of typos in the AA review. And the announcement has "emmersed" instead of "immersed"...:D

Edit: Fixed.

The "announcement" (is that what the blurb on the main page is called?) for Trilby's Notes says "more dreadful then ever."  That should be "...than ever," of course.
Today is a good day for pie.

Ahem. DD and his grammar! :P

Quote

You have your lasers and your proton torpedoes and of course, you are flying skills as well.
Star Wars: Battle of Endor. Btw, there's a revealing clue that DD never got to see Super Star Destryoer, as he mentions only:

Quote

Flying in game as you face down the many enemies from the tie fighters, to the large star destroyers, it is a real rush as you try your hand to stop the empire.
And imo that sentence sounds a little... umm... wierd?

Edit: Whoops, didn't notice at first:

Quote

Still if your looking for a good action packed game, look no further than this one.

Edit2: Okay, more coming:

Quote

How about that awesome battle of Endor, you know the one if you are a Star Wars fan.
And anyways I'd replace it with:

Quote

How about that awesome battle of Endor? You know the one if you are a Star Wars fan.
And following:

Quote

Well now, you can relieve that classic battle in this title where you take on the role of a x-wing pilot during that particular battle from that perspective.
And in the last sentence I'd add "," between "...in this title, where you..."

I'd also replace:

Quote

Story wise if you know about the story from Return of the Jedi you know what's going on, the rebel alliance has warped into the planetary system of Endor. Because that is where the Empire is building their second death star at the moment.
with:

Saboteur95 - Even the main character(who’s appereance you can modify) is borrowed from old Mortal Kombat games.

It should be 'whose'.
