I've not much of an idea about payment platforms at all, but I know of this system: [LINK]

It's used by Sinister Design (Flash Developer, maker of Telepath RPG). It seems to be pretty trusted and supports a wide variety of payment methods (although nothing mobile based from what I can tell, which is something people seem to be going on about). It is a software distributer though, so I doubt Figcoins would work how you intend them to at the moment if you chose to use that platform, but I guess they're another company to look into if you're running out of ideas and to give you more scope of the market... Or something?

*Being Welsh and rather...

Forgot to include the word "Welsh" in my original post, which is probably the key word in the first sentence -.-'

You're probably right there. Being and rather patriotic a fairly substantial part of me was screaming "NO!! Welsh is your native language, butt!" but I thought that would indeed be missing the point so voted yes instead.
I had my Facebook set to Welsh for a while, and after a while it just drove me crazy, even though I speak Welsh as a first language. Now Facebook is set to Pirate and the status quo is restored.

Thank you for your feedback. It is greatly appreciated and I'm very glad you are enjoying the series. Having recently replayed the MARDEK series, I felt the urge to write about it, so I decided to challenge myself to do so in a semi-journalistic style as a challenge.
If you have any suggestions for improvements I can make, please let me know =)
Thanks again.

A very nice review. I totally agree with you on what you said about this game being a good one, but not totally groundbreaking.
Personally, what you deem to be a good quality of taking away player control once the your troops are sent out I found incredibly annoying. Many a time I found myself bored just waiting for my goblins to die so I could play another stage. Were it not for the extensive upgrade system there would be no reason to play this game, in my view. The core mechanics just aren't strong enough.
I digress however, another brilliant review, Zaknafein. Keep up the good work.

I've had a quick search around the site you linked and I can't find any place to file complaints or anything. If anyone can find a good place perhaps they could link it (or Pseudo embed it in the post) and we could get Fighunter users to launch mass complaints? Also, should kupo707 be informed that Epic Battle Fantasy is up for downloadl? His games were the only other ones I recognised on that list, but other developers may want to take action as well.

Thanks a lot for reading the review and I greatly appreciate your feedback.
As I stated in the conclusion, I really did enjoy the game but I felt it was very flawed and tried to show it in the review. I by no means think this is a bad game (hence why I gave it a "Good" rating), and didn't intend for so many of my comments to seem so harsh. I shall bare this in mind when writing future reviews.
As for the things you picked out, I would like to defend the reasons I gave those comments.
The Hub screen: I agree with you that the hub screen is functional which is why I didn't comment on it in the body of the review,as it did exactly as a hub should do - nothing more, nothing less. The particular comment you noted was more to do with the length of the game, referring to how many aspects of the game can seem boring after the many hours of playtime this game asks of you.
The story: I feel your comments about story are valid and that it should be something developers should put more effort into, however when it's supposed to be the defining feature of a game (as in this case) and it doesn't live up to that promise then it should be berated. The way the story is always presented after a mission in the same way over and over again just became monotonous, instead of exciting had there been flashes of what was happening while you were playing a level, for example. I did read all the story segments and there's still inconsistencies, plot holes and just a general lack of polish and coherency with many parts of the overall tale. Finally, the comment about bland conversation was to do with the presentation (as I mentioned in the review) as much as the content. In terms of what the characters actually said, I rarely found it made them believable and instead all the characters' personalities rode between cliched and plain silly, often stopping off at the junction of inconsistency.
Graphics: I don't really see how mentioning pixel graphics is appropriate here, seeing as this game does not use them, and is quite entitled not to either. My problem wasn't so much the choice of graphical style, it was the lack of consistency and how the environments just looked ugly.
Enemy Placement: While there are ways to get around the annoying enemy placement it does limit the number of play styles severely. You must either get all the upgrades that let you shoot in different directions, or a weapon that lets you shoot through walls. I just felt it was a poor design choice, when the game gives you a huge wealth of options, only to limit those which are viable options.
I apologize that you may not have enjoyed my review as much as you could have, but thank you for reading it regardless. In future I will attempt to organise some of my ideas more clearly, owing to some of the issues you raised in your feedback.

I'd be pretty happy with whatever you changes you decided to implement on the site, Pseudo, however as a frequent reviewer I would like to request that you don't totally remove user reviews. I understand that it's a feature that's rarely used (I myself am guilty of this, seeing as my last review was three months ago) but I feel it's an interesting facet of the site and one worth preserving. Would it be possible to have a "Reviews" section on the new forum perhaps? Maybe with a template for creating reviews in something similar to the current format? It's part of the site I would hate to see removed entirely, if only because I have so much fun writing reviews, enjoy reading what others write, and for a chance to get feedback on my writing abilities.

Thanks for your help, I really should learn to proof read better. A lot of those mistakes are kind of embarrassing =P
Anyway, all the changes have been made, so publish away once you're ready.

This poll surprised me. I thought Smartphones, Tablets and iOS devices would be more commonplace than they apparently are.
Personally, I own an Android, on a contract for £15 a month, which nets me unlimited texts, unlimited internet and a free phone, which I see as really good value, so it surprises me that more people don't have them, purely for that reason. I didn't even realise that non-smartphones were still in production, seeing as the market is shifting towards being dominated by these devices.
Perhaps it's to do with the audience here, though. For a start, the users of this site are from all over the world, so perhaps smartphone fever hasn't taken over everywhere as much as it has in the UK and US. The age of users here may also have an effect, seeing as many (myself included) are under 20 and so probably still rely on their parents to keep them alive and their parents may not feel like they "need" a smartphone, or whatever, seeing as they still considered luxury items to many. I guess the sort of community here at Fighunters may have an effect as well, seeing as many people seem to prefer anonymity, and smartphones predominantly seem to attract the "Facebook-Twitter" people, who do a lot of social networking.
There's so much value in a smartphone than just linking it to Facebook or Twitter though. Example: a few weeks ago I was talking with a friend about how much we weighed. He was used to working in Kilograms, while I liked to work in Pounds, so to sort things out I just whipped out my phone, hopped online and downloaded a converter app on the spot and we could compare our weights easily. I've been revising for exams recently, and didn't have a timer, so I just downloaded a stopclock app and used that. I use my Android for just about everything now. I don't take my DS anywhere because I can play games on it. I don't need a camera, because it's gone one. Same goes for an MP3 player. I even use it's internal memory in the same way as I would have used a USB stick a few years ago.
Were I to lose my phone or something, I would be pretty devastated, seeing as it's become an integral part of my every day life in a way that hard to understand if you've never used a smartphone. Before I got it, I was sceptical of it's uses like people have commented, but it's made me a believer. I'm sure if people just gave a smartphone a go they would be convinced of its usefulness too.
