REVIEWS Titan Souls Review
Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

StarDrive 2 Review
A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

Quality on the rise
Posted on Wednesday, November 28 2007 @ 15:48:20 Eastern

It seems like suddenly, after three years of the Game Revolution Beta, the member reviews are picking up. Gone are the constant A+ games that have just three sentences of barely readable praise over some aspect of the game that is liked, and instead we have well researched, informative, and well written reviews.

A lot of the new guys I have seen, like AcidTrip, Mattay, Masterdude, JCD and most recently Snowseph, have quality reviews that they make on their own, and surpass even my own skills as a writer.

Let's face it, I am a bad writer. I always have spelling errors and I often repeat myself when making points. I do, however, have a style all on my own, one that I crafted and adopted since my first review on this website. I also am usually a consistant writer, meaning I give at the very least, a quality review to a game.

And while I still see one paragraph reviews out there from time to time, it is good to see guys and gals like those mentioned above, and anyone else I forgot to mention, give in great input and solid contributions that are needed on this website. When it was only Tyrranis and myself writing what seemed to be quality reviews for a time, (2005-2006) it was like waiting for the big guys to say something about their favorite game, or whatever game is popular at that very moment.

Many of those that frequent the forums, or comment in the reviews, have become afficionados in their crafts. I am just glad that the growing number of quality is starting to surface. Not for nothing, but I enjoy reading the reviews of others when they have something to say. Even if it is as short as three paragraphs, or as long as short essay, that is a good review as long as they make their points clear.

If anything else, it adds some credibility to the website as well. We have members who make great pieces of work on here and you can see this as an example of how to do a real review of a game. So once again, as I ramble on, good job to the new guys and gals who contribute reviews to the website. I can't wait to see what else you have to say.
