"I can only assume that they don't want the review because they don't think enough people will read it, even compared with some of this utter shit."
Matt asked about Melty Blood, and I said there wasn't any room for it at the moment. It's true - there isn't really. You should see all the reviews of utter shit I've commissioned that we need to get out of the way first!
That's not to say we won't look at it when things die down, in much the same way we try to catch up with wicked-looking Japanese games people tell me about months after the fact that I missed at the time, and in much the same way we've reviewed BlazBlue (in the arcade and at home), KOF XII (on import, which we obviously had to buy in) and have Cross Edge coming up shortly, on the subject of beat-'em-ups. But right now Melty's hard to fit on the slate.
It's not a conspiracy though, and I certainly didn't "refuse" to have it reviewed, so please try not to jump to conclusions. I know I don't spend enough time on the forum, but I am always around, so if you have a question about the site or a suggestion of a game to look at, you can always PM me and I'll be happy to let you know.
