    A while back (I cannot remember how long), I saw a review for a game that gave the game a 0/10. The review was horribly written and extremely biased, but not from Gamespot. It was so dumb. The reviewer basically said that the character creation was so horrible that they never got past that point, and the rest of the review was simple nitpicking about how even though the game wasn't supposed have non-humans, you couldn't choose to be a dwarven elf. Or how the game wouldn't let you change your clothes in the character creation.

    It was the worst review I have ever read, and I bookmarked it just for the sake that it was so bad it was funny... But the bookmark is now sitting on my parents' computer at their house, and they can't access it because they don't have Firefox installed on their computer.

    I don't remember what game it was that was reviewed, and this is all the detail I can provide. Can anyone identify this game just from what I have described?

    I wouldn't expect that to have character creation, so that wouldn't be it.

    PC? Wii? DS? PSP? PS3?

    Or can you not remember the handheld/console it was on?

    No, because there's no mention of how the character creation was so horrible that they quit playing before they got past that point.

    Actually, now that you mention I know the review you're talking about. I read it a while back, I can't recall what it was...


    It was OBVIOUSLY Soul Calibur IV. [​IMG]

    I can't find the ratings of the game, but when I Google "horrible character creation review" the first 3 hits are about Dragon Age I and II. Could that be the game?

    And Wikipedia says about Reviews on the run:

    If those reviews get past the character creation, then that's not it. Besides, Dragon Age has non-humans, and I remember that the review touched on this with shabby remarks about how even though the game has only humans, there should have been the ability to be a dwarven elf or something.

    So close and yet so far away.
    Hey, this sounds really interesting. But how come they're not able to access the bookmark? If you made it there, it should still be there unless they've completely deleted and uninstalled all the browser data. So they can either send you the bookmark by using the export function or using an app which lets you access all your bookmark in another PC like Xmarks.

    Well, as my parents use Internet Explorer and none of us know how to access a Firefox bookmark without using Firefox, we can't look at it. My parents are those 'We can't install it if we aren't going to use it' people, too, so installing Firefox or a program to get the bookmark is a no-go.

    If you made a Firefox bookmark using Firefox, then how is it not there anymore?

    Can't you just use a portable version of fireFox? (or a FireFox derivative like PaleMoon or something?)

    I installed Firefox onto a flash drive. Then I took the flash drive with me when I moved out.

    Wouldn't that make the bookmark on your flash drive then?

    Seems pretty simple then. Visit them WITH the USB and then ask to borrow their computer while they fix you some tea or cookies. Works with my sister...

    They're two or four states away (The number depends on how you count diagonals in this case) and I can't afford transportation to get there because I'm still looking for a new job and am low on funds. (Thank god for a roommate who's nice enough to pay for everything while I'm trying to find a job.)

    Why can't you just tell them to install it, export the bookmark and then uninstall it? All problems solved, and it shouldn't kill them either.
