This isn’t a full blog post. I just wanted to direct you over to a couple of amazing pieces on the reviewing culture currently going on with gaming today.

This one is about why Ars Technica (and everyone else) should avoid metacritic.

This is one about review embargoes (which is time delayed information suppression).

I particularly like the second link due to the fact it’s touting transparency. No favoritism, once news is known you broadcast it and it keeps game publishers honest.
