okay. I know DOS. I've played in DOS. I like DOS.
thus, I'd think it would be a good idea for both me and you if I entered the crew. Now, it may be true that I am relatively new here, but what matters, is that I am not new to reviewing. I have been reviewing for many months for Freeware Underground, (www.fwug.com), with a total of about 70 reviews published (I've actually reviewed double as that, but they never got on. either the games sucked, or the review sucked, so I had to proofread them before I posted them, and not all passed that test.) [I recently left FWUG. after one of Thralls "accidental" deletion of the whole site. FIY, this has happened something like 20+ times....in a 6 months timespan. not really convincing, is it?]
So, I'm out now. No site. No job.

I know you will like to read some of my reviews, as a demo. But I ain't sure if I am supposed to mail them to anyone, or post them here on the board.

Uhm, all the games of dosgames.com are reviewed yet... but emmzee should deside himself

Anyway, if you'd like to review games, you can review for my website Laughing , it hasn't got much reviews, but I'm working on some new ones (3 games to be exact...). But my English is not that good that I can reviews my whole website :s

Post here. If your review is good enough, it'll be added to the site.

Um, sure, but ask the reviewer permission (through a PM) first and post that you did in the thread for whatever review you're putting on the site.

No, they're pretty much entirely reviewed by the webmasters.

Originally the idea was, if someone posted a good review on the "Game Reviews" board here, I would add it to dosgames.com ... however so far only one has been added that way, JtA's review of Keen 4:

http://www.dosgames.com/keen.php

Linked to from:

http://www.dosgames.com/g_side.php

However ... maybe we can do some more of these ... I'll try to look thru the Game Reviews board later today to see which one(s) would be good to add ... really, I'd like dosgames.com to have a full user review system, but that would pretty much mean a total site redesign, which I just don't have the 100 hours or so to do at the moment. Happy But hey you never know what may happen in the future Happy

Why does it say "A Full review of Keen 4 by 486 Player" if it was by JTA?

Ohh in the title! Took me awhile to see what you're talking about. Happy I dunno, I must've mixed it up somehow, and no one noticed before now. Anywho its been fixed.
