After promising myself for years to write a review for a game, I finally did it. I just posted up my Resistance 3 review on the site, and as I expected, I don't think I'm happy with it. It's the funny thing about being a perfectionist, you're never satisfied with what you do, because it's never perfect. I forced myself to just finish it, tidy it up and post it, because I knew that even though I might not be pleased with the review, I would be happy that I finished it. And I am, It's nice to have finally fulfilled the promise I made to myself to give review writing a go, just for my own enjoyment, or self growth or some other nonsense like that. The interesting thing now is to see if anyone actually reads it. It's quite long, which will put off some, but I feel like I said everything I wanted to say with it, so that's something.

I just wanted to express my thoughts and feelings about a game I played, more for myself then anybody else's benefit. I would be stoked if somebody else enjoyed my writing, but I'm not going to get my hopes up. Regardless of the reaction the review receives -- positive, negative or non existent -- I will continue to do more (so be warned if you think that one is woeful, MORE ARE COMING!). I also hope to get back to blogging about whatever bullshit game related nonsense I am thinking about at the time as a means of clearing out my cluttered mind. Anyway I think it is time to take a step back away from the screen, my giant wall of text I call a review is making my eyes sore. I may jump back on later to talk a bit about Age of Empires Online and my experiences with Deus Ex.

I just read the review, it's pretty good but you have a tendency to over explain a bit which makes some of the sentences drag. I would read more if you put more out.
