Sizing Up The Bomb: Oh Yeah!? REJECT THIS!

edit: I was updating the Mike Haggar character page when I remembered this video:

  


YOU CAN'T FUCK WITH THE HAGGAR!




Over the weekend, the fine, fine, lovely, extremely handsome folks at Giant Bomb made their way through my submissions.

And rejected a bunch of them.

I can understand why; they have the unenviable task of pouring through dozens of updates about the same game.  At some point, they'll have to reject someone's updates.  However, it still stings to have some random dude in the basement of a San Francisco office building tell me to fuck off.

I'm crying a little.

I've been unable to figure out how to get the crazy amount of points that I've seen other folks manage.  I'm not sure if text, blurbs, images, or what gets the precious, precious points.  Seems like it's arbitrary at this point.

On an unrelated note, I finished Mass Effect on Saturday, and am now going through again as a Renegade.  Seems to me that, though I'm a huge dick, people pretty much all react the same way as they did when I was really nice.  Meh, whatever, as long as I can blow some faces off, I'm happy.

I am right there with you my friend.  I recieved a rejection email on one of my edits as well.  I thought it a bit harsh, but it could have just been me, what do you think?  The comment they said was, "Final Fantasy VII was certainly not the first game to use cut scenes"  I felt the certainly was a bit much.  We just have different ideas of cut scenes I guess when Legend of Zelda is considered to have them.  Anyways, sorry bout taking all this space up, and I think the way to a bunch of points is submiting like pages.  Its a point a picture and a point a blurb but depending on the length of an article for a game page, you can get a bunch for that.  I was never very good at doing that, reviews sure, but not articles for games.  Keep on truckin though I am sure you will get there.

I think the key to getting a thousand is to submit stuff on obscure games that no one will probably do. I don't have many points (closing in on 200), but I got a lot of mine by editing every FIFA game to include the same genre, franchise, and object. As for why your Rock Band submission wasn't accepted when you added all the DLC, well, I think I got there first (plus I edited the DLC count). =P
