Checkpoint Intimates: The Review Conversation

Posted on May 19, 2017

Listen to the show!

Checkpoint Intimates is a weekly podcast where two members of the team go one-on-one on a topic that they both feel strongly about, talking in a more deeper and, yes, intimate context. On this episode, Luke is back to get intimate with Elliot as they discuss review scores and what they really mean as a consumer. With Prey recently causing a bit of a stir with some bugs at launch and Bethesda having a policy that means nobody has access to reviewing their titles before release, this leaves some interesting questions for gamers. How do they know the quality of the game before they buy it on day one? What reviews are worth waiting for, if any? What problems does it cause when publications are literally racing each other to be the first online? Listen in to hear our thoughts, along with why Checkpoint chooses not to apply scores to our video game reviews.
