Hmmm Phil, personally if I'm listening to a review, I like it to go into detail.

While obviously I don't want the hole game spoiled, I do want to know about controls, how the game is played, what the general flow of gameplay is like etc, --- in fact I tried, downloaded and subsequently bought games like Dyna man on the basis of such reviews myself.

I do take your point though Iand I'll have a think about it.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Hi Dark,
I use gold wave for mp3 editing.
I think your short reviews do have a place as they give you a bite of a meal without serving the whole dinner. For any person who is not interested in spending the time downloading and trying out several games, it gives them an idea of how the game works and they might just do such a thing.
Phil

Hi Phil.

Well I've not really looked into file editing ssinse my r09 just is click
and record once set.
I must confess though, I really don't hold what I did in that podcast to be
serious reviews, sinse if i were reviewing those three games properly I'd
want to spend perhaps half an hour to an hour on each, sinse it' just not
possible to explain a game like entombed or time of conflict briefly, ---- and Mota's mechanics with the various weapons, items and switches would need
some more time too.

this did however force me to work out a speaker placement that I can use to
reccord in sterrio. This has been the main obstacle to me doing reviews.
When i recorded bg hearts etc, I was in colidge, and thus my speakers were
already close together. Now however, they're quite a distance apart and I
wasn't sure how to get round this or where to put them.

When however Barry asked me to put this together, I knew I'd have to give it a go, and sinse it seemed to work out pretty well I'm more inclined to try
doing it again, and perhaps do more extensive reviews.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

Hi Dark,
I enjoyed your review of the three games.
It would be great if you could cut it up and add the three reviews to the
audio games site.
As for SAPI mispronouncing things, I use SAPI to speak a lot of text in
the Sarah game.  I use trial and error on the spelling of strange words
until I get it to pronounce the words correctly, then I record the result.
With a game that uses SAPI that is not possible, but the developer could
include a pronunciation dictionary text file of all the unusual words that
the player could edit and adjust to make the words sound better.
For example ,
Dumbledore, Dumble door
