So I just purchased Medieval Engineers when it was on sale. I was a bit apprehensive to do so and rightfully so. When I picked up the game I wanted to build a Necropolis from Warcraft 3. In case you are wondering what a Necro...
So it's been a while since I did one of these and I might as well do another one for two reasons. One to fill in the gaps, two because i feel like it. Now i'm only going to count world maps you can actually walk around in, no...
Of all the many games to be re-released, Grandia 2 Anniversary is the only time I’ve ever forked over money for a game I have already played. My reasons for this were simple. Grandia 2 Anniversary is available solely on PC....
Well bugger it, I'm going to talk about this now. Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the Playstation, A console many of us hold dear. I think all of us who experienced the Playstation can all agree that the console impacte...
After a stressful day of unpaid work, I headed to my local game store and picked up a PS4, no games, just a second-hand PS4 console. The cashier looked at me puzzled but they were happy as long as they got my money. Now I ope...
This is something i've recognized for a while now. My tastes in videogames depend on what time of day it is. As someone who seems to get plenty of time to game (being semi-unemployed and all), I find myself playing differrent...
Please note that a lot of information here is theoratical and unconfirmed, if I say something that is wrong I apologise, this is not an article to inform, moreso an article to express my views.
So this kinda came up in my min...
So i've decided that since I can't get enough of good games, I thought about writing about them again, only this time with a new and improved look to them. Basically this is going to be something I do when I want to cover a g...
So E3 happened, i rarely watch E3. All the big fanboys streaming their favourite games in the chat with excitement and slating other games off was fun to watch and the actual presentation? It was ok i guess though the bi...
Mafia 2 was kind of hit or miss for me personally, it’s a game that tries really hard to create a realistic setting and story line but it is held back by several issues that pushed the game into mediocrity.
Since this review is for both the main game and the expansion, I’m going to focus on the campaign. In any case, the online multi player component might as well be considered dead at this point due to it’s utterly toxic co...
Now as we all know, EA are a greedy publisher. Their development team Black Box on the other hand are actually not that bad and it shows through Need For Speed Carbon.
Completely ignoring the controversy behind EA, I&rs...
Just an outspoken fan of rpg's and gaming in general who likes to rant about first world gamer problems because there are so many.
My blogs mostly consist of reviews/rants of games of all generations, particularly rpg's. I try to blend my reviews with both facts and opinion so that people can see from my own experiences and decide for themselves. i will also tend to review older titles because i still believe that there are few people out there who haven't played these awesome titles and deserve to give them a chance.
Oh and as for some negative's you might point out, i can't spell for my life and my grammar is terrible. Plus i like to exaggerate my points a little to make things more fun, yet some people are dense enough to take them as fact.
Here is my response to those intelligent enough to point them out:
Heres my review rating system:
Masterpiece (Same as masterful but for overall score, will be based on opinion), of course it won't be perfect in every way but it will be close to perfect, no game is perfect.
Masterful - Perfect in every way (Formerly 9.5+) (definitely pick up the game if you are a fan of the genre)
Exceptional - Goes way beyond expectations (Formerly between 9.1 and 9.4) (definitely pick up the game if you are a fan of the genre)
Excellent - Does what it needs to and provides a first class experience (9.0) (definitely pick up the game if you are a fan of the genre)
Great - Does what it needs to, provides a high class experience (8.5-8.9) (recommended to all fans of the genre)
Good - Does what it needs to and provides a very enjoyable experience (was 8.0 - 8.5) (recommended to all fans of the genre)
Satisfactory - Does what it needs to, provides an experience which is just enough to satisfy the player (Formerly between 7.5 - 7.9) (Reccommended to read the review if unsure)
Decent - Does what it needs to, experience can very depending on the players tastes (Formerly 7.0-7.4) (Recommended to read the review if you plan on picking up the game to see if it's for you)
So-So - Not for everyone, has some issues, may be worth a try if patient enough to cope with it's flaws (Formerly 6.5 - 6.9) (Reccommened to read the review if you're interested in the title)
Flawed - Alot of flaws, difficult to recommend, some may be able to pass them by but will require a lot of patience (Formerly 5.0 - 6.4) (Reccommened to read the review if you're interested in the title)
Awful - (Formerly 4.9 and below) (If you see this, don't pick the game up for this catagory)
Kill It With Fire - (Same as Awful but for overall score, based on opinion which in this case is usually right if you see the game, you know what to do, don't buy this and if you do, get some gasoline and a match)
