Anything 51 and up is a recommendation, meaning you aren't wasting your time seeing it. Anything between 51-79 ranges from mediocre to very good. Anything 80+ is what I call a "Great Movie" and it's a must-see and is awesome to various degrees. Anything that's a 50 is something that I'm a fence sitter on (meaning I'm too useless to actually be able to make up my god damn mind) so it could go either way. 49 and under means you should avoid. Under 10 means I was probably raped by the movie or, at the very least, fondled. Despite the effort I've put into explaining my rating system, numbers are fairly often chosen at random (well, maybe my gut feeling) so I might actually like a movie I rated 75 more than an 85, I just really can't be bothered to go back and constantly re-do my ratings.

90 78% Katana Zero (2019) - Apr 19, 2019
"I'm in love with this game. It's quite short, but it checks all the boxes for me: a great story with a novel premise (I mean, you talk to a therapist after murdering dudes) that is told in a kinetic and frantic way, gameplay that is simple but engaging with a variety of different moves you can do that lead to satisfying results. You can pull off some cool stuff if you're good. Awesome music and visual style. There's a pretty abrupt cliffhanger though, unfortunately."
90 78% Blaster Master Zero 2 (2019) - Apr 19, 2019
"They improved upon BMZ mostly because it isn't so insanely easy this time. The way it mashes genres together is still really appealing to me, it adds a few different mechanics that make the game deeper and more interesting, so when you add the nice challenge that it presents to all that you have an amazing game. It's probably the best in the series but my nostalgia heart says the original is. "
70 28% The Eternal Castle [REMASTERED] (2019) - Apr 06, 2019
"The effort that the developers put into the fiction behind this supposedly remastered game is WONDERFUL, the visuals annoyed me at first but soon created a very endearing atmosphere. The music is incredible. Animation is stellar. So it's maddening that it still plays like an old game: the platforming, shooting and general movement can be really clunky and annoying, making the game unfun at times. But it's still good by my scale, mostly due to the aesthetic and story."
90 78% When The Darkness Comes (2019) - Apr 06, 2019
"It's a very personal, accurate depiction of all the things it covers (such as depression and anxiety), wrapped up in some horror and meta-game goodness. It's short but you can play through it again and some things will change. I always found it incredibly fascinating and the endings got me emotionally. There is one section in particular that's annoying; I get what he's going for but it wasn't necessarily fun in that moment. Still love this."
40 6% Anthem (2019) - Mar 27, 2019
"The combat is fine, but that's most of the praise I'll give it. Walking around the hub to talk to people who ramble on and get quests is boring. The flying is fine at first but then I realized, what's really the difference between this and open-world games where you spend all day just driving from place to place? It's fluff. Story sucks, loot is basic. Before I gave up the load screens were awful too, I don't know if they've fixed that but it's too little too late for Anthem. "
90 78% Metro Exodus (2019) - Mar 17, 2019
"This connected with me more than I thought it would. I like that it's non-linear but not exactly open world. I don't love having to clean guns but once I started just knifing dudes it got more bearable. But I enjoyed all the components here: the scavenging, the world, the gunplay. I know others don't like that it isn't like the others, but I kind of enjoyed how it mixed the above ground stuff and underground because it made the underground more menacing, but gave a reprieve from it when above."
95 90% Shadow Hearts: Covenant (2004) - Mar 17, 2019
"This is probably better than the first but the first being the one I remember most fondly I'll just rate this the same. Awesome story, music, battle system, opening video scene, humour, etc. All things the first one did well and they continued to do well with the second."
95 90% Shadow Hearts (2001) - Mar 17, 2019
"This was a huge surprise for me at the time. It hooked me from the opening video and didn't let go. A great story with some truly memorable scenes (digging his own grave), with wonderful music, a battle system that was pretty original at the time (and done well, even by today's standards). Dark but also had an odd, endearing sense of humour."
65 20% Apex Legends (2019) - Mar 10, 2019
"Not a fan of the genre, but this is the entry in the genre that I've played the most (which still isn't a lot). Respawn just nails action, and they contributed some nice quality of life/additions to the genre that will hopefully positively affect the genre moving forward (for those who love it, I don't care that much myself). This deserves a higher rating than I give it but it comes down to taste and it's just not overly for me."
85 63% God Eater 3 (2018) - Mar 10, 2019
"I'm new to the franchise but the gameplay loop worked for me in a way that Monster Hunter has not. It's fast and snappy, the levels aren't very big and you don't really have to track enemies. That works for me more, plus I enjoy the sci-fi aesthetic. Another thing that pulled me along is the story, which isn't amazing in general but is definitely good enough to keep me wanting to progress. Maybe that's something MH has lacked for me and a reason I can't get into it. This also has a lot of depth."
