the only problem i have with reviews like that, is that i feel like they are smiling while calling me names and then slapping me in the face, then shaking my hand and saying "Take care and have a grrrrreat day!"  (if you know what i mean.)

That's a bit of their usual slang, though, isn't it? To me (as a fairly regular reader) the article sounded quite positive.
And what is more, even the first couple of comments weren't too bad :P.

Every bit of publicity helps in the end, I guess...

I would say it's decent coverage, upbeat, though fairly noncommittal. It's what I'd expect, since I don't think any of them have actually played it yet, and aren't likely to have watched a whole heck of a lot of the video. They go through a lot of games and the in-depth stuff is either strategically or very personally chosen.

I would also say that if TLF stands out (moderate likelihood), or one of the editors takes a shine to it, you'll see a 'real' review, where the writer has played and enjoyed some of the game. If it's flat out marvelous, you might see a "Wot I Think," or in-depth review.

In general, RPS is friendly and supportive toward Arcen, though a bit hesitant to go all-in. It's a decent relationship I'd say, since if Arcen happens to knock one out of the park, they'll almost certainly make news of it, but if it does anything less, it'll be smaller pieces like this... and there'll be a snarky statement or two about AVWW in the comments section.

Ah.... i didn't know that. The media sometimes eludes me, haha, but what you say sounds reasonable. I'll have to pay more attention and see if i can get the hang of snarky vs disdain.  :)  I knew there was a reason i wasn't an english major.  :)

Hi all,

Intermittent RPS reader here. I've started following The Last Federation's development after catching that article last week. This game has a promising concept that I hope you guys can implement well.
