When I write out reviews for the latest games I buy, it will look something like this:
I’ll be rating games out of ten similar to how GameInformer does their reviews. I appreciate how they narrow down the reasons to fully explain why and where the game did great or terrible in its score. With the number, there will also be a medal (Bronze, Silver, and Gold) depending on where it places on the scale:
1 – 5 = Not worth it, hard to drag yourself through = No medal awarded
6 = Just barely enough to get a medal, but you still probably shouldn’t get it out of frustration = Bronze
7 – 8 = May not be for everyone, but has some value = Silver
9 – 10 = Close to perfect, a must have = Gold
I’ll always point out criticisms, advice, and praise for the story and gameplay. I may also add other things from time to time like saying something about the music, extras, and so on. I like to go in-depth whenever I talk about something, but I’ll work on keeping it short if I go overboard, so please let me know. Other than all of that, this is what to expect for my reviews.

The first few or so reviews, I’m planning on getting the big titles for the Wii U like Bayonetta 2 and Super Smash Bros., so I’m really not being biased towards the other gaming consoles. I don’t have an Xbox One, nor do any of my friends, so I can’t really review games for that system (sorry). I appreciate what all video game companies have to offer. [Update]: I may or may not get a Nintendo Switch in the future, so I won’t be able to evaluate those games either for a long time.
Most of the reviews will be of newer games, but occasionally I’ll be going back to older games that have been out for a while now to change things up.
Once I get a game, I’ll try to publish a review for it as soon as I can, but I need time to fully evaluate everything it has to offer. Reviews may take at least a week or so before I can tell you what I think, so please be patient. I’m a college student, so you can imagine how busy I am. Thank you for understanding.
That is all, thanks again for visiting my blog! 😀
