Honestly, I regret labelling this as a ten part overview. This is a Correspondent article, like any other correspondent article on the site. Numerous games have articles written about them, published on a weekly basis through our Correspondent program. Andy submitted a proposal to write ten about Darkfall. Given that he's the Darkfall Correspondent, that makes a lot of sense. Other writers have written close to ten articles on the games that tehy are covering. It's really that simple and isn't actually disproportionate. I'm not going to publish all ten parts simultaneously, they will be spread out in the same way thata ll other Correspondent articles are.
Ok, now I'm going to address some of the points in the thread:
First, and I can't say this clearly enough: THIS IS NOT A REVIEW. This is a CORRESPONDENT OPINION PIECE, no more, no less. It doesn't pretend to be anything more than that either. You'll know a review when you see it on the site because it will be labelled REVIEW and will have a score associated with it. Not every article put on a gaming website, anywhere, is a review.
Second - Darkfall articles produce hits. Hits are the bar by which I judge the popularity of articles. it's not disproportionate coverage so long as people are reading it. If people stop reading it, we'll stop running it (of course this isn't a cover-all rule, but in terms of determining what articles to run and when in a general sense, it applies). Right now, quite honestly, Darkfall articles are some of the most widely read articles that we run.
Third - If you feel that a game isn't getting enough Correspondent coverage, become a Correspondent yourself or encourage someone else that you know who plays the game in question to become a Correspondent. All you have to do is email email@example.com.
