Welcome to another edition of GameSpotting, where we come at you fast and furious with our own special brand of stylish, hard editorials. This week's edition covers media critics, obligation to your online guilds, enabling 1080i in Gran Turismo 4, and the scourge of ridiculously long titles for games.
If you'd like to be featured in a future GameSpotting, create a profile, if you haven't already done so, and then start writing in your journal and begin reviewing all your games! You can review any already released game by visiting its gamespace and then clicking the "Review This Game" button on the right sidebar. You can also submit your reader review or journal entry for consideration by e-mailing a link to it to the features editor.
