Welcome to Splitkick.com!
We are a group of like-minded gaming journalists who have banded together to create something different. We’ve assembled a team who are free of the news treadmill. This freedom gives us the ability to focus entirely on bringing you original content like editorials, weekly gaming podcasts, and video series. It also gives us more time to review games the way you want them reviewed.
Splitkick’s review process is unique. When our staff starts playing a game it gets added to our “Now Playing” section on the right sidebar so everyone can discuss whatever they’d like to about that particular title. If you comment on the game, it starts up a conversation in our forums to get you interacting with our staff and community.
We’ve also developed a unique scoring system for our reviews. Instead of a typical star rating or percentage grade you will find our F.P.S. chart! F.P.S. means “fun per session”, a way of evaluating the complete experience of a game. Every time one of our reviewers ends a gameplay session, they score the experience on a scale of 1 to 10. This chart shows you the pacing of the game, if it starts slow or lulls in the middle, and whether or not it goes out with a bang. When the reviewer has finished the title the sessions are averaged to create a final review score.
Splitkick’s community doesn’t end with our writing though. Tune in to Rocket Jump and Recurring Bosscast, our podcasts that regularly feature news, gaming discussions, and industry guest interviews. Subscribe to our channel for great original video content like our retro gaming show Old Game + or follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Raptr to keep the conversation going and meet new friends!
We’re glad you stopped by, so hang out for a while and start taking part in one of the best independent gaming communities on the internet.
