Greg

Congrats on getting more hits for your blog. Nobody would care about these terribly written shock value reviews if they weren't somehow on metacritic, which has real implications for the developers (bonuses and such). This review reads like something a random internet troll would crap out - no substance, spoilers, and a ridiculous baiting score. Enjoy the short term attention because nobody is going to care about this site's credibility from now on.

I'm more surprised that you actually created a website just to troll 360 metascores.

Every time I play a game with campaign scoring it always depresses me to see my low scores.

That site gave Journey a 40 and a 60 to both Starhawk and Twisted Metal, so it can't be me.

Take out that 1/5 review score and we're looking at an 89 metascore. Crap! They needed a 90 average to earn the pizza party!

Seeforurself

Im going to put Tom Chicks reviews into perspective

Uncharted 3- 2/5
Assassins Creed revelations: 1.5/5
Max Payne 3- 2/5
Journey- 2/5
Catherine- 2/5

Yeah this is normal for him... a reviewer who thinks he is better than everyone else

And now your favorite site in the world.

Ah, I wonder if that's the site that gave Journey its lowest score. I remember whoever did also got blasted with the same accusations of "you're trolling for blog hits" for that review.

This guy might just have legitimately different tastes, but in my opinion I think a reviewer should review something and try to decide if other people might like it, he doesn't seem like he really can do that.

PS3 fangirls just relax...You've got Wonderbook: Book of Spells to *chuckle* hold you over for now.

I'm not sure how that fact validates the content.

More money apparently makes opinions better.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 5, 2012 6:40:27 AM PST
The National Enquirer is backed by a multi billion dollar corporation too. So is TMZ and People Magazine and Fox News. Do you want to say that they are all credible as well?

Usually something being owned by a multi-billion dollar corporation has the OPPOSITE effect of being unbiased.

Which is why we all hang on Flores and his 12 figure income's words.

"Halo 4 Xbox 360 1 star 11/5/12
Journey Playstation 3 2 stars 3/19/12
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Xbox 360 3 stars 3/26/12"

Okay, so RE: ORC is better than Halo 4 and Journey?

The reviewing site has given most other 360 exclusives glowing reviews, so I don't see a preset bias here.
