The Goal of Wherever I Look

The overall goal of this website is to fill in that space between the average fan and critic. To be that person who formerly, when you went to the movie’s box office or when you went to Blockbuster, could say this is good, this you’ll only like if you are into that, or simply don’t waste your time. This is done by breaking down topics so that instead of a mountain of text, only broken up by quote blocks and pictures, things are fairly to the point.

 


How Are Posts Written?

Overview
A one-sentence summary either hinting at what happens or general feelings about the production.

Trigger Warning(s)

Play Through Time
To help inform those interested in playing or renting a video game, it is noted how long it took to finish the game. Percentage complete is also included for games which provide that.

Other Noteworthy Facts & Moments
