I guess I'll sign up... Can always use a little advice now and then =D.

Hrm... I guess I'll do my review on Exit Path 2.

Hey Gantic, how did you happen to come up with the title for this program?

Eh what the heck, I'll sign up. I'll do one once I have once spare time or I'm bored. I'm thinking of doing Kingdom Rush. I have to finish the game again to refresh in it though.

@70_70_70: You know me so well, that was my first choice, then he majesty of color then heir then after much debate I decided that heir would be easiest.

So does it start for us when we post our rough draft?

Well, I guess I'll actually have to play a game then, in well at least it's a good one.

Anyone without a game comment merit is eligible.

It starts when you join and select a game. The next step is the rough draft followed by feedback from Gantic.

I have played and taken notes on my selected game and will post my first draft later tonight.

@fantasy4life You're out of luck for the guaranteed merit unless you can prove that merit is from you winning a contest or from somewhere else.
@xerox Did you proofread? Your punctualization and capitalization are inconsistent.
@xeano321 SIPPYCUpS was originally envisioned as the "Comment Improvement Program" or "CIP". I demanded that I expand it to something that can be called "sippycup".
@ImTheMostManlyMan It starts when you enroll, unless you've previously completed SIPPYCUpS, which would be impossible.
@royalguy What? You're doing schoolwork by playing Colony and writing a review?

I'll do it when I have time. My only merit is from the Haiku Contest here.

I have created my first draft for the game review of Nuclearoids. The draft is below:

Nuclearoids is a decent game, but it has a few issues. First of all, I like the graphics and the rate of difficulty increase as one advances in the game. I also like how the goal reached message pops up as soon as the goal is reached. I also like the menu, which includes muting, restarting, exiting, and a Remind Goal button, which allows one to revisit the goal. The screen is not too big, and lag is not an issue with this game. I also like the random placement, which makes one think about each attempt differently. However, I find that there is not enough overall variety in the game, both in objectives and in nuclearoids. I also found that gravity is applied inconsistently, and that the late game objectives can be really difficult. As for improvements, I think more nuclearoid types should be added, and a progress bar should be added for each objective so one knows how much of the goal has been achieved so far. Additionally, allowing multiple clicks for tougher objectives would be a good idea, and the power indicator before the explosion click should be longer so one has a better idea of what the click will do. Overall, I think this game is interesting but has plenty of room for improvement.
