    They really need to double check after they post. Wait, scratch that: quadruple check.

    Look closely here (a Control-F search might help). There's a bad word that has been dashed out of this reprinted piece; presumably it was there in 2001 when the thing was locked within Insider. Scroll down the page, and you'll find the same word uncensored.

    It's not that I haven't found errors lately. I've found one in almost every IGN article I've read in the past two weeks. But this is amazing and deserves special attention:

    http://retro.ign.com/

    It may not be there anymore depending on when you read this, but they called the SNES Star Wars game "Super Stars Wars."

    On the front page here.

    HOW....?

    You might feel dumb for asking that, but "Super Star Wars."

    I thought you were pointing out they were calling it Super Star Wars, but it was something else. My bad.
    But that is actually a pretty odd title.

    This man really likes putting question marks at the end of everything he says. Maybe he thinks they're pretty?

    I wonder what kind of cartons are banned in Canada, and why. Is it because some kinds of fibers are forbidden?

    Go to any article right now and observe the top marquee, spotlighting "the top 10 Super Bowl Ads" and a review of a "new episode of Heroes." IT'S FROM LAST JANUARY. HOW DO YOU MAKE A MISTAKE LIKE THIS?

    Not as glaring, but IGN sometimes reviews games without even finishing them. It gets really bad with the Sonic the Hedgehog series, since most of IGN's staff openly hates those games. It was apparent from their scathing review of Sonic and the Black Knight that they had only played the first quarter of the game, since they complained about a lack of playable characters, when there are three more to be unlocked after that. It would be like playing Final Fantasy III only up until you get the first crystal, then shutting the game off thinking it's over because the credits are rolling. They complained that the game was "too short" when they hadn't even finished it yet!

    Sonic!

    Things got ugly when it turns out one of the guys didn't finish the 360/PS3 version of "Sonic Unleashed". Trust me, it was ugly...

    Speaking with 343 Industries head Frank O'Connor in a behind closed doors meeting, he said that the fall release date is "early fall" and that we should expect something "fairly soon."

    Um... punctuation?

    That's not been confirmed, but you probably won't need to save up your wads of one-dollar bills for this one.


    I have no idea what you're talking about. Is this a joke that went over my head?

    You get to see a true progression of the art styles, which range from classic '80s anime style to water color visuals to amazing CG.

    Punctuation?

    Actually, Taki, the top and bottom sentences were punctuated correctly.

    HAHA
    Would figure I'd be wrong about that, of all people. I sometimes wonder if I'd been taught some things incorrectly as a child. Wouldn't be surprising. Still embarrassing.

    For a change of pace, here's an IGN article I actually like. It's been a long time since that happened, but this is honestly funny, and that's saying a lot since most of their "joke" articles are anything but.

    It really helps if you have a large collection of old Nintendo Powers, though.

    Sorry for bumping this relatively old topic (I could have sworn that this topic was on the first page a few days ago...), but this was just to dumb to go unnoticed:
    http://wii.ign.com/articles/115/1150475p2.html

    :confused: Wait, what? What about Link's Awakening? Or Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages? Or Four Swords and Four Swords Adventures?
