Posted By: superluigi77The line you used about games being pieces of entertainment, I'm pretty sure grant used the same line a little while back in a friendly debate with elgamer. This could be a coincidence, but it brings to a cautionary tale I'm sure you've heard about gamecreater17 and the dangers of plagiarism. What he did was copy younguns' (Youngcaliman. It's the nickname we agreed on.) review in the reviewer recruitment thread. This got him banned for life from the thread, meaning he can never be a ms reviewer. If you plagiarize in real life the consequences could be much worse. I'm not saying that you plagiarized that line, I just this as a good opportunity to warn you against it.

Do you think I would be banned submitting this review?
No. It's just one line. Just don't copy an entire review. If you really want to see where grant used it just do a topic search of Halo 4. It was a thread comparing Halo 4 and COD.

Posted By: elgamerIt's a technique in business... I studied this before... let's take Apple for example.. There iPhone 1 gets old so they create another to make double the profit... almost every company does this once their merchandise gets out - of - date... very simple and easy to spot out
The actual game is not a piece of hardware, its a piece of entertainment.

So does the review still need improvement or the review is ready to be posted in Emp's thread?

It just seemed unusual to me that you would say something so similar. If you want to submit your review, you can. If I were you I would check over your review once more for spelling and grammatical errors. I think it has a chance, but only you can decide if it's good enough to be submitted.

Can I give you one of my games? It occurs to me that when I'm reviewing a review, it helps to know the game that is being reviewed.

Hey, next time you want to use a line, put quotations and list your source.

That wasn't really the case here. He didn't really use a line. It was just coincidence that he and grant said something similar. Nothing more.

Either way, that's what you do when you want to. I'm not stating that he stole a line...

All my best games are difficult. I may have to dig into my archives...Hang Castle one of my oldest and most favorite games that I have made. I hope it will be to your liking.

I know you have good intentions, but don't use my thread to advertise your game.

You have impossible standards. You do know that you don't need to beat a game in order to review it, don't you?
