Honestly, Kay, I found your critique to be quite childish and unfounded. Your contempt is obvious, but 90% of what you wrote amounts to little more than heckling. You fail to present a coherent message. One minute you criticize the author for using too much slang, and then the next you criticize the author for using 'big words' (that aren't even that big). You seem to be going out of your way to find things to complain about. I might note that personally I didn't have any difficulty understanding the author's slang and I'm not even much of a slang user myself.
It's obvious that the writer wasn't going for a "professional journalistic tone", but this isn't a story about international politics. It's a video game review
. What's wrong with being a little silly? One shouldn't claim something isn't 'professional' without considering the context and nature of the article in question. Frankly I enjoy it when a reviewer feels that he or she can be a little more personal with the audience. Not every review needs to be a dry list of facts.
Epic's epic epic ends epically
Come one, think about that sentence. It's an epic and guess what? It's epic! And it ends epically!!!
It's a friggin joke
. It's supposed
to sound silly.
P.S.: I hate Gears of War.
