Monterey Jack


I dunno mate, I actually didn't care for the Kingdom Hearts 2 review. it practically reeks of her being rusty, which she thankfully applied some WD40 to when it came time to review LA Noire - now that's the real deal.

Hey, nice to see you reviewing again!

That LA Noire review is leagues ahead of your old one. Can't say I agree with your assessment of the story; I thought it was pretty good or at least entertaining not to mention very *bleep*ing well presented. Other than that, it's pretty good stuff. Same with the Kingdom Hearts 2 review. In other words, just keep doing what you're doing!

It's coming...



I've also redesigned my OP. Not bothering with images for links anymore because I have reviewing ADD and the images have numbers on them.

Eh, I actually like what she wrote down Watain. Doesn't really seem all that awkward to me. But I like your rewrite too..

Watain


it's better but I still don't like it, sorry Alyssa.

The most satisfying is when Duke rips off a boss's head and shits down its neck. After having to fire enough bullets to stop herds upon herds of aliens, nothing beats using the boss' neck as a toilet - especially if the fight itself involved having to circle strafe to avoid constant fire, collecting resources once you start to run low thus running the risk of getting hit, and then blowing your load all over them.
the problem is that it just reads a bit too awkwardly. try something like this:

Just edited that sentence. Cheers Polarity and Watain. Let's hope that this edit is better.

But hey, let's make this shit official!



This got priority due to the retro review challenge that Gryzor has still yet to judge. :3

Goddamn, what plane of existence does that sentence even make sense on?

Watain

Also, "not present facts and strategies" - you kind of need a foundation for a building there, buddy.
whoops, was supposed to say "not just present facts and strategies". my mistake.

and no, she didn't balance them well enough. there is opinion laced in the review, but there isn't as much of it as there could've been if you catch my drift. thankfully, she rebounded with the Duke Nukem 3D review.


edit - I have to say, though...

what the *bleep*? you know what they say - IF YOU ARE A FALSE, DON'T ENTRY!!

quote Watain
I feel like it's a bit too fact sheet-y for its own good. the idea is to discuss the merits of the game and how good/shit it is, not present facts and strategies.
I actually thought she did a fairly good job of balancing opinions with facts. Probably not as well as she did with The Longest Journey, I definitely agree with you there, but I thought she did what you said, which was to discuss the merits of the game.

Also, "not present facts and strategies" - you kind of need a foundation for a building there, buddy.

Yeah, Mark Of The Ninja was surprisingly tricky for me to review because I wanted to inform while telling people whether it's good or not. I suppose it's a tricky style to get right because you have to balance entertainment with giving people the facts (or at least what I believe are the facts), and Mark Of The Ninja bested me. I should hopefully have that sorted out in my future reviews. In fact, looking at what I have down for one... I wish I was like this with Mark Of The Ninja.

I'll edit that review sometime in the future if I have time.
