You have put my topic down as 'Breakdown Of Game Informer Article' when it is actually called 'Analyzing Game Informer Magazine'. If you could change that it would be appreciated. Ok Thanks.

What the hell happened to the original topic?

 

Well, rated good, again.

Runestoner has made a new account under the name of Runey. Obviously as he won't be using Runestoner anymore he wouldn't be able to edit his original post so he just copy and pasted a new one but with his new account.

OK. I'll put those up tomorrow. I've been sick the last couple of days, and haven't gotten around to updating the topic.

 

As for the reserved post, that is in case the first exceeds the character limit for posts. If it does, I can just continue it from there.

Hmm, didn't know there was a character limit...do you know what it is offhand?

 

On topic, I think a Vehicle section would fit nicely at #2 or #3. There aren't a whole lot of them now (3 or 4), but there will be soon enough.
