For your delectation, I have two very different Curator pages:

Ever wonder how I rationalise those crazy Verdicts which I deliver in my reviews? Well, wonder no longer:

RATINGS GUIDE (out of 10):
10 = About as good as it gets. Not necessarily “perfect”, but as close as it could have been, all things considered.
9.5 = Very, very nearly “gets there”, and honestly not much at all to complain about.
9 = An awful lot to like, but somehow lacking in some spark or touch of perfection which would make it truly great.
8.5 = A hell of a lot to recommend, but also some reservations.
8 = Very, very solid, but still quite a ways from greatness.
7.5 = A very firm recommendation, despite a number of shortcomings.
7 = Shows definite potential, but for whatever reason(s) falls quite a bit short of what it could have been.
6.5 = Really could have been something, maybe still could be, but still some way from that goal.
6 = “Above average” in its appeal, but not by a great margin. Definitely underwhelming.
5.5 = Not much above a pass. Not a COMPLETE insult, but far from something to write home about either, and not something you’d heartily recommend to anyone (even if you thought it was “their thing”).
5 = A pass. BARELY.
4.5 = A fail, if only just.
4 = Really, really not good. Could be made passable, but only with significant work.
3.5 = Pretty woeful, really. Probably COULDN’T be rendered passable, even with significant work.
3 = Awful. Either the devs were incredibly lazy, or incredibly lacking in anything resembling “talent”.
2.5 = Abominable. Even the best of intentions – if any were indeed present – couldn’t save THIS one.
2 = A failure at every conceivable level. Either the devs are full-blown “con artists”, or really should give up all their hopes and dreams of being professional video game designers (or at the very, very least, should wait for their skills to improve a bit, before releasing some half-baked “demo” as product).
1.5 = Downright insulting. The people who made this should definitely be ashamed, especially if they asked MONEY for this shit-sandwich.
1 = The devs hate you. Or, failing that, I at least hope that they secretly despise THEMSELVES, for having released such a lethal stink-bomb into the public consciousness.
0.5 = The devs may as well have choked you to death with their own faeces, and pissed all over your shallow grave for good measure.
0 = SERIOUSLY?! Is this even POSSIBLE?!? YOU PEOPLE SHOULD BE SHOT!!!!!!!!

Oh, and here's another site I write for upon occasion:

And finally, here's a few things about Yours Truly (as a "person" an' all that):

My name is Michael, I enjoy playing and reviewing games, and yes, I'm currently 42 years old. If this is something which makes you uncomfortable, please DON'T ADD ME. Similarly, if you don't appreciate my somewhat dark sense of humour, DON'T ADD ME. Neither of these things are liable to change or improve in the foreseeable future (quite the opposite, I suspect)! Other than this, I'm happy to be Steam friends with virtually anyone, though I may be suspicious if your Steam level is 0 or 1 and the only game you "own" is Team Fortress 2. I'm not much into trading, especially with people I haven't known for a loooong time, so if you're only looking to get stuff off me - especially totally, 100% free stuff - please, for the love of God, DON'T FUCKING ADD ME!!

Having said that, my ambivalence towards generosity runs both ways. While I have absolutely no problem with people gifting me games, please note that I have about half of the Steam catalogue currently in my wishlist...so if you want me to play something you gift ASAP, just message me and I'll be happily honest about my chances of playing it in the near-future :)

Ever fancied The Slaughtering Grounds with cruddier graphics? Well, ain't you the lucky one! Knock yourself out, sweetheart.

(Yes, I realise this review is as lazy as they come. But you'll think I've painted the Sistine Chapel, once you've feasted your eyes and ears upon this sorry excuse for a "game".)

Verdict: 1.5/10.

Haha, of course! And let's face it...after we've both reviewed so many indie horror games, we can almost SPOT the bad ones a mile off. That said...there's always surprises, both ways. Some games that are surprisingly good...and others that are super-disappointing. A dirty job, but someone's gotta do it! :)

Glad to know there's someone else out there who puts themselves through the same kind of trauma to review bad horror games. I often get a lot of "why bother" myself, but if there are no bad reviews, how do you know it's bad... right? ;)
