    I'd like to give some feedback for the review structure since it is the first I saw. First, I think star ratings and pro/cons could be given for each category (and variance as well: some games I've played I rate a 5, when it really feels more like it oscillates between 3 and 7). Then, when I first saw the 'end' of the article (here: https://i.sli.mg/6KZEZI.png) I thought that was just the end, then I saw the review score. It should look more like this: https://i.sli.mg/9k7rSz.png

    Also, when I checked the general reviews, it should probably check pixel count instead of word space to determine when to stop the Continue Reading part. The Pokemon Go article took so much of the scroll bar: https://i.sli.mg/yAdpzZ.png and the Paper Jam article has so many videos it ends right at the conclusion (bug?).

    Yeah, review structure is something I'm thinking about a bit more. I tend to write a lot about every game, so I'll probably go back and cut off the reviews a bit earlier to avoid the page nearly crashing cause of the videos and pictures.

    Ratings for each category could work well. Pros/cons for each I'm not sure about. Seems like a lot of padding, especially when you don't really have enough to say to fill up such a section. What would you say a con would be in regards to say, Mario Galaxy's music?

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Well, I wouldn't always say they even have to be filled as it's only a small part of it. So I'd either put nothing for Mario Galaxy's music, or say that it could have been 'even better' in some aspects (which is not really a con) like more times where instruments are added, changed or taken away. I've had those "Could be improved" moments in a lot of games, actually: I personally would rate a 10 as a game where I could not think of any improvements and has no flaws, which is pretty much an impossible feat at the moment for obvious reasons, so underneath that can be some games that are not flawed, but regardless are too barebones compared to other, larger but perhaps flawed games. A good example would be Tic-Tac-Toe (Noughts and Crosses anywhere else), which is not mechanically flawed but could use some improvements to say the least.

    Edit: Is it just me or is it possible to confuse "4 stars out of 5" with "4 stars out of 10"?
