For years, I have reviewed books and video games for this blog. What can I say? I have a talent for being snobbish and judgmental. Finding fault with things comes naturally to me. It’s a gift. For that reason, TMTF Reviews have long been a feature on this blog.
This is about to change. I’ve decided to replace TMTF Reviews with a new feature: Review Roundups.
TMTF Reviews are in-depth critiques of individual books or video games. By contrast, Review Roundups will assess several books, games, or films at a time. Roundups will be less formal than the old Reviews, offering brief impressions instead of long, detailed analyses.
Why are TMTF’s reviews a-changin’? The short answer is that comprehensive reviews are not much fun to write, and probably not much fun to read. As satisfying as it is to critique a book or video game at length, it’s also a bit tedious. Review Roundups will give me the opportunity to review more media without going into exhaustive (and exhausting) detail.
Review Roundups won’t be terribly frequent: maybe once a month or so. They certainly won’t take over this blog or steal the spotlight from… whatever it is we do around here. I don’t know.
Why do I review things at all? I suppose it’s for the same reason I write this blog—it’s fun! That said, I’m excited to continue
nitpicking reviewing media for this blog.
Sounds good! I look forward to seeing the new format in action. 😀
Review Roundups will certainly be more fun to write: all of the nitpicking with only some of the effort! 😉
