Hey Gang. I've given myself a new online identity and have started doing video reviews. I've made two so far and would love to get some feedback.

    I liked them because they're honest and don't try to shove humor down your throat as other pseudo-reviewers/comedians.

    It reminded me of Co-Op, so take that as a compliment.

    PS - I want more. :(

    Your review of Dante's Inferno was very good and sums up the games core problems; it's poor platforming mechanics (a combination of poor camera and just not being clear what to do) and the terrible copy/paste last third of the game. I agree the game is worth playing though, because the first 2/3 are fun but people just should not buy it under any circumstances. It's easy to play through on a rental.

    I found them both enjoyable, and I enjoyed the bit of humor you slipped into each one. Didn't feel out of place or anything. Will look forward to seeing more reviews!

    Not bad actually.

    The one thing I did like is in the Dante's Inferno review you voiced your complaints and then followed up with what you would have liked to see, this is good solid constructive criticism. Also, there was no real number attachment to the game, which is excellent. I tire of "7.8" and "9.3" scores. Just knowing what is right, what is wrong and the summary is all that is needed.

    Keep it up.

    These were good and the humor works (most of the time.) The intros were both funny. Your acting is a little deliberate at times, or perhaps a little stiff, but it doesn't make the overall review bad - I wouldn't change it much since I'm sure you'll get it exactly right soon. And hey, you show enough gameplay in the review, that's what video reviews are supposed to be about. There are a lot worse out there.
