VIDEO GAMES

SBB 5.0 Rating5.0 – Perfection
A recommendation to buy the video game day one or right now if you already haven’t. There is no such thing as a perfect game; however, this comes as close as it is going to. Everything adds up to make this an extremely enjoyable experience. If you consider yourself a gamer, and you miss this game, you are doing yourself a disservice.

Example: The Last of Us; Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood

 SBB 4.0 Rating4.0 – Great
An enjoyable game. It might have had a major flaw or a few minor ones that just stuck out. Overall the greatness of the game would overshadow it. We will let you decide whether to buy it now or on sale, but it needs to be on your radar.

Example: Wolfenstein The New Order; Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare

SBB 3.0 Rating3.0 – Decent
An enjoyable game, but there were some issues that could not be swept under the rug. Wait for a sale and when you have nothing else to play. It was still a satisfying game, but we probably won’t play it again.

Example: Army of Two The 40th Day; Prince of Persia

SBB 2.0 Rating2.0 – Meh
You know those summer sales or Black Friday sales that go on? Yeah, wait for that. Or Redbox. We see the potential that is there. It just never blossomed whether it was bugs, repetitive, no story, etc.). Play only if you a true fan.

Example: Assassin’s Creed Liberation

SBB 1.0 Rating1.0 – Clay Pigeon Substitute
We couldn’t even enjoy if it was a free copy and it was snow day from school or work. You know CDs / BluRays look really cool when they are lit on fire? We are not saying you should play with fire. We are just saying….You would probably be less frustrated trying to hit the CD / BluRay skeet shooting with bird shot.

Example: Terminator Salvation

MOVIES

You know those seasonal sales or Black Friday sales that go on? Yeah, wait for that. Or Redbox. We see the potential that is there. It just never blossomed whether it was bad effects, no story, etc.). Watch only if you a true fan.

SBB 1.0 Rating1.0 – Clay Pigeon Substitute
We couldn’t even enjoy if it was a free copy and it was snow day from school or work. You know DVDs / BluRays look really cool when they are lit on fire? We are not saying you should play with fire.
