The Bullshit Review Scale

Part of why I read reviews is to decide whether or not I should play/buy a game. Games cost money and with a regular 9-6 job my time is limited in what I can play.  I have to make that count.  Also, I like reading reviews! If I’m going to play a game from start to finish and then talk about it, I should also post my own formal review of it.  Makes sense, right? But what makes Read on…

Why Microsoft’s Reversal Is Bad.

Disclaimer:  If you want a quick reason- read the final three paragraphs.  If you want theory/my arrival to this point- read on!

I’ve been a hardcore Xbox fan since Microsoft’s rookie console.  I loved the graphics.  I loved Halo.  I loved the controller.  I loved the multiplayer experience.  Until a couple years ago, I had never even owned a Sony console.  They didn’t have games I could justify spending another $400 for.  Even if they did, I hated the controller- that was my main reason for holding back.  It never fit well in my hands!  So I just passed on it.

My Top 10 Favorite Games of All Time

Every gamer has their list.  Here’s mine:

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 was the first game I can say, I truly felt mastered in.  Not only did I beat every level (and had an effing blast doing so), I LOVED getting super sonic and debugging throughout the levels.  I still remember all the sound effect/music sequences for the cheat codes (19, 65, 9, 17 and 1, 9, 9, 2, 1, 1, 2, 4).   The feeling I’d get when I met evil, metal sonic and transformed into Super Sonic was something I’d never felt from a video game before.
