@cptcarnage Surprisingly, Kotaku has been doing a bang up job on reviews lately. Their structure is exactly what I want from a game critique.

I also prefer Giant Bomb’s style of game coverage these days. It’s just the right mixture of insight and buffoonery. The only downside is that their amount of coverage is limited due to their small team size.

Of course, word of mouth rules all. It’s the only source that’s been able to sway me into an otherwise self-directed buying decision.
