Review of the Week, 30 January to 5 February 2011

There were five reviews in contention. It certainly wasn't a week of spectacle. In most cases, it was a week of reviewing 'meh' games.

First Place

honestgamer's LittleBigPlanet 2 review (PS3)

You can learn a little more about the man who runs this website from this review, and you should get a clear idea about the nature of the user-generated content on offer for LBP2's game/game-maker, and be able to speculate on whether you may have the chops or time to use it to produce your own content.

Second Place

Emp's Crimecraft: Bleedout review(PC)

A crime MMO gets better as blahed-out reviewers fob off free fantasy MMO's thrust in their direction.

Third Place

JoeTheDestroyer's Krazy Kreatures review (NES)

Another crappy game for the NES motivates another traditional consumer warning from Joe.

---

PS Pickhut's video does successfully illustrate a point from his review.

Thank you, bloomer. I agree that this was a week of "mehness." I was hoping to have a more positive review out this week (one for Super Meat Boy), but didn't like the way the review was shaping out.

Congrats, Jason, on the win.

Thanks for the comments, bloomer, and for posting the RotW topic in a timely fashion despite server switch issues and everything else that this week has brought. I'm glad you enjoyed the review!

If not for the above meddling, The Ball would have qualified for this week! Grumble. Grumble! The only upshot of this is that the focus window I made for Jason's review was also destroyed.

Thanks for the placement, and congrats to Jason and Joe. Are you back to typing this now, or are you still dictating?


For us. For them. For you.

I dictated RoTW. Except for really short messages (like this reply now) I dictate everything these days. This way I have more hand-arm resources to spread around other activities. It's been a major life improver.

Um, just thought I'd point out that my Krazy Kreatures review somehow became featured...

Bloomer, I had no idea you were still even alive.

You know, that's funny. I was going to say the same thing about you.
