When working on processing what games we will review, we have to sit down as a team and discuss the games we wish to review, we feel we need to review and ultimately what titles get to go through the review process. Unfortunately for some games we do cut them out of our list of titles to review while others manage to slip in and make the review priority list.
This year you may notice we have a lot of absence regarding big name triple-a titles and even titles that aren’t as big. Before I continue on I must stress to you the readers that we are 100% unfunded by any company. We don’t have any paying backers willing to throw a few dollars our way to ensure that we can process reviews, afford to quit our jobs to focus solely on this project or even prioritize our time away from other things to guarantee their product will be reviewed. While we are lucky to work with as many studios and publishers as we do we don’t always get the opportunity to review the games we would like to or even afford them since a lot of our hardware, games and accessories are actually paid for by us through our every day jobs. While we would have loved to review Call of Duty Black Ops III, Rise of the Tomb Raider and even Assassin’s Creed Syndicate – we don’t have the money nor were we given the opportunity to by the publishers.
All we can do is be thankful for your time taken to read about the products we do cover as well as the titles we are fortunate enough to review when we do and we hope to see more of your feedback and support in the future.
