You may or may not have noticed that the last two posts on Wizard Dojo were reviews for Splatoon 2. Two different reviews, but for the same game and with the same basic title (“Splatoon 2 Review.” So clever).
If you’re wondering why that is, it’s just because the first one was written by AfterStory’s Alex, while the second one was written by me (which hopefully you noticed by the author boxes at the bottom of the reviews).
Why have two different reviews for the same game? Well, why not? When Sir Alex
sold his soul to me became part of the Dojo, we both agreed that we’d review whatever games we wanted to, even if the other already reviewed it. That way, certain games can have a “second opinion” thrown in for good measure (I, for example, plan on writing my own reviews for Persona 5 and Nier: Automata sometime down the road).
But why did we call them both the same thing? Well, truth be told, both of us agreed for second reviews for games to be referred to as second opinions. But Mr. AfterStory, kindly fellow that he is, didn’t think my reviews should be deemed “secondary” on my site (though I personally don’t mind).
So yeah, there is a Splatoon 2 review from both of the current authors here at the Dojo, but do you, my beautiful readers, have any suggestions for what we should refer to repeat reviews? Should they just have identical titles just because? Or should a second review be referred to as a second opinion, or something else entirely? Feel free to offer any suggestions.
