    You need to move the following below the Skulls of the Shogun quote:

    "The Windows 8 Red Stripe title is just one of three versions of the game with achievements. If you want to complete the set then you'll need to buy the Xbox LIVE Arcade version and the Windows Phone version too."


    As for the games. I picked up Kinectimals.

    There's no reason the move that paragraph below the description box. The Kinectimals paragraph is above it's description box, so why would Skulls' be below it?

    Well it's worth pointing out that if you ever intend to play other versions of Skulls, you must play all versions simultaneously. After completing one, achievements on the other formats become unattainable. Of course if you aren't bothered by this, go for it. It's still a great game.

    I have a receipt from Jan 30th purchasing Skulls for $4.49 - so you're not going crazy!

    It is a great game, though, and I definitely recommend it.

    Because nothing in that paragraph tells you that it's talking about the game quoted below it. When I read it the first time I thought he was still talking about Kinectimals. I think it would be clearer if it was below the header that tells us which game the paragraph refers to.

    I'd argue that "The Windows 8 Red Stripe title" told you exactly which one it was on about.

    Yup, that's why I will never pick up the WP or the Win8 versions. You'd think they'd find a way to patch the problem.

    Yeah, I'm afraid I caught that okay.

    No, because at the end of that paragraph you still would have no idea which game is being talking about.
    Reading is a linear process. You have to write your sentences in a sequence that makes the idea you are trying to convey comprehensible, without having to back track to re-read what you've already read. This is just not a good way to present information.
    This is a very short article so I know I am making way too much of a big deal of it. I was just offering a suggestion to make things a bit more readable, that's all. I think we can all agree that putting "Skulls of the Shogun" in the paragraph or moving it below the quote would make things a little clearer. If anything it wouldn't hurt to do so. At the end of the day though it's no big deal if nothing is changed and the article is kept as is. :)
