About My Reviews

Review tidbits

  • All of my reviews are my own honest, original thoughts
  • All screenshots are my own, taken from the video file produced while recording the game
  • Any writeup published could possibly be altered as time goes on. Any alteration made will be explained in said writeup.
  • Corrections are made to any writeup published if said writeup needs it. For example, if something is stated about a game that is incorrect.
  • I do not allow game developers or publishers to influence my reviews/haikus/first impressions in anyway.
  • Spoilers will always be avoided. Always.
  • As of March 17th, 2014, I no longer factor a game’s price into my review of said game.

Normal reviews

  • Normally, a “Cub Plays” video would be created to accompany said review, possibly a full-length playthrough of the game.
  • Review scores are not discussed with either the developer or publisher prior to the publication of said review
  • My normal reviews tend to be short and to the point

The scale

I use my own scale dubbed the “K-o-Meter”.

1- Not Really k
Given to bad games/movies/whatever, think 1-3 on a 10-point scale
2- Somewhat k
Given to games/movies/whatever that aren’t that great, but aren’t trash. Think 4-5 on a 10-point scale
3- Moderately k
Given to games/movies/whatever that are mediocre. Think 6-7 on a 10-point scale
4- Pretty k
Given to games/movies/whatever that are mediocre. Think 8-9 on a 10-point scale
5- Highly k
Given to games/movies/whatever that are mediocre. Think 9+ on a 10-point scale

 

 

First Impressions

  • Normally, a “Cub Plays” video would be created to accompany this type of post. It is rare for a full-length series to accompany one.
  • A bit shorter than a normal review. Gives an overview of the game without assigning a score to it. Usually used for early access games.
  • Could possibly become a full-length review later on, although this is uncommon

Review in haiku

  • A “Cub Plays” video will be created for said game, or an entire series featuring the game
  • A haiku will be written and placed onto a cool image from the game
  • A score will be assigned to the game, along with a short list of pros and cons
  • Review scores are not discussed with either the developer or publisher prior to the publication of said review
