    Take Early Borderlands 3 Reviews with a Grain of Salt

    Copies of Borderlands 3 given to only a select few review sites ahead of launch.

    Review copies of Borderlands 3 have only been provided to a select few media outlets ahead of the game's launch on Friday, September 13. The game's publisher, 2K, says that this is all due in part to some unspecified "security concerns" over the game.

    As Kotaku points out, most review copies are provided to outlets roughly a week or two ahead of the public launch. These review copies can be physical offerings or, as is more common these days, a digital download through Steam, Epic...

  • Critical Consensus: Crackdown 3, Far Cry New Dawn, Jump Force, and Metro Exodus


    Tomorrow is a massive release day for games. For some reason, publishers and developers decided that people who play video games would need a lot of joy in their lives come February 15. I simply cannot fathom why.

    Needless to say, there are four major titles being released tomorrow and the reviews for all of them are now in. Well, almost all of them. Though Anthem is also coming out tomorrow, it is only being released for those that have EA Access, Origin Access, or Origin Access Premier. Reviews for that game have not gone live yet. We'll go through each of tomorrow's releases...

    Mass Effect: Andromeda Review Scores Sitting in the Mid-70s

    It looks like the embargo on reviews for Mass Effect: Andromeda lifted earlier tonight. Both OpenCritic and Metacritic have their initial scores already in from a variety of outlets. At present, OpenCritic has Andromeda sitting at an average score of 75%. This is across all platforms.

    Metacritic has the PC and PlayStation 4 versions of Andromeda at 73% while the Xbox One version somehow edges out an additional 3% to (currently) give it an average score of 76%. In general, it looks like a bulk of the praise focuses on the game's fast-paced and more customizable combat, the added mobility that the jump-jet adds, the sound design, voi...

    Bethesda Will Not Send Advance Copies of Games for Review

    As we previously saw with DOOM, so will be the case with future titles published by Bethesda. The company announced today that the press will not receive review copies until just a day ahead of official release dates. This will apply to Dishonored 2 and Skyrim Special Edition.
    Earlier this year we released DOOM. We sent review copies to arrive the day before launch, which led to speculation about the quality of the game. Since then DOOM has emerged as a critical and commercial hit, and is now one of the highest-rated shooters of the past few years. With the upcoming launches of Skyrim Special Edition and Dishono

    Total Gaming Network Now on OpenCritic

    Recently, OpenCritic kicked off their new Contributor Program. In short, it's a way for OpenCritic to bring to light a plethora of reviews from sites that aren't quite as big and all reaching as the IGNs and GameSpots of the world. It's a great way for sites like Total Gaming Network to get our reviews out there to perhaps help a larger audience make an informed decision on whether or not a game is worth spending money on. To be very clear, the scores of those enrolled in the Contributor Program are not mixed in with the Official Score listing. This area remains the domain of the IGNs and GameSpots of the world. However, while they are kept separate, the Contributor scores are still easily accessible from each game's Summary pag...

  • Valve Makes Steam User Reviews Slightly Less Terrible on Steam

    Valve Makes Steam User Reviews Slightly Less Terrible on Steam

    Steam user reviews tend to suck. The top reviews are usually the bandwagon fluff that also tends to infest such sites as Metacritic's user scores on games or they're "joke" posts with a punchline that only those that are mentally eight years old would laugh at.

    Today, Valve took a few steps to fix this issue of user scores.
    Visibility For Recently Posted Reviews While there are plenty of new reviews posted every day, we saw that it was often difficult for newer reviews to be seen and voted on enough to become listed as most helpful. As a result, the most helpful reviews presented on a store page would often describe an outdated view of a game that might have changed drama

  • Week in Review: Catching Up with Fallout 4 DLC, The Division, and Forced Showdown (All of April 2016)

    It's certainly been quite some time since we last had one of these Weeks in Review, yeah? Sorry about that, but you know at least one of the reasons already. With that out of the way, it should be noted that there have been a number of games that I played in the past few weeks.

    Some of these reviews will be a bit shorter than previous entries just so I don't exhaust myself with all of the reviews I think I have to write. Keep in mind that I'm not actually sure how many games are going to end up below, so anything I just said might end up being a load of crap....
