You may be wondering:
“Why do you write reviews in first person?” Because reviews are subjective, and you can’t spell “review” without “i.”
“Why are your music reviews so short?” Because a reader can jump on YouTube and decide for his- or herself whether or not they like something. The idea is to help spread awareness of bands that may not have as big an audience as they deserve.
“Why do your game reviews not have a final, overall score?” Good question! Because video games are comprised of multiple elements, and assigning a single number to an entire game seems flawed. Instead, we score multiple areas within a general range and allow the reader to decide whether or not the game may be something that piques their fancy.
“Why do you review old music and games?” Because in our current age, there is more media to play and listen to than any one human has time for. These mediums have also become timeless. We live in an age where a game like Shovel Knight can win game of the year, and where a band like the Sword can make its mark on the Billboard 200 charts. We don’t find it necessary to limit our content pool.
