So I’ve finally compiled some reviews together and will be posting a handful or so very soon. Gotta get the ball rolling n’ all that….
The first review will actually be a re-print (appropriate really given the name of the site…) of a review I wrote for the podcast/blog site me and my friend Alex did last year called ‘The Meat Grinder.’ Knowing the previous readership’s numbers, a re-print is probably no bad thing.
I also thought I’d take a moment to explain the scoring system I’ll use for the reviews (you know how it is; a reviewer who doesn’t use a numerical score is apparently WORTHLESS!).
In addition to your standard ‘x out of 10’ score, there will also be an ‘Avoid it, Rent it, Buy it’ thing which will do exactly what it says. I felt the two should be independent of each other; whilst pretty much any game that gets lower than a 5 is going to be an ‘Avoid it,’ I have played plenty of games which although I thought they were excellent, I couldn’t quite justify outright buying due to some potentially deal-breaking fault or perhaps because they were only a couple of hours long. Anyway they’ll look like this:
