My Review Plans

Following up from the video blog I did on Friday talking about what I plan to do in the future, this blog is going to go over what I plan to do in terms of reviews.

Since I started on Gamespot over two years ago, I done 4 written reviews and 4 video reviews but I can only mention the reviews I did for New Super Mario Bros and Wario Ware: Smooth Moves as being semi-professional in terms of video and Condemned in terms of written. I want to change that and make better video reviews and better written reviews and I will vary from both from time to time or else do a video and text review for a certain game.

So, where am I going to start? I am going to start on the games I know about very well thus it will make it easier for me to write the review for them. Games like Super Castlevania IV, Shenmue and Zelda: A Link to the Past. Since I have played these games several times through, I do have a great understanding on what they are about and the gameplay mechanics are etc. Once this is done, I will work my way into more modern games and games that I have in my collection but never gave my time to in the past and thus would like to play through them for two reasons: one would be to write a review on the game and to shorten my backlog down.

So when will the first review be? Well, I plan to do one review a week starting in September and I plan to do one on one of my favourite games of all time just to kick thing off. In terms of video reviews, one will be done once per month or two months depending on how I feel since it takes time getting the footage and editing it of course. Below is a list of 5 of my favourite games and I would like you guys to pick the one I should start with. Here we go:

Conker's Bad Fur Day

Super Mario Allstars

Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Shenmue I or II

Super Castlevania IV

So choose one of those delightful games above and my review plan will come into effect once it hits September. Anyway, catch you guys later. I'm off to do some good ol' gaming.

Toodles.

A Link to the Past. One of my favorite Zelda games after Ocarina. Definately review it next. :)

Conker or Shenmue, just purely on the fact those are two games I wanted to play but never had the chance.

Shenmue, definitely.
