What’s a Mini Review?

Reviving a Series

You may all remember that I’ve done these, “mini reviews” a few times in the past and I’m bringing them back! So what’s a mini review? It’s something I’m going to be doing for several shows that I have mentioned previously, actually reviewed in a larger article, or just don’t have much to say about. There are two reasons for this:

  • These mini reviews are a way for me to ensure that the review catalog here at Jon Spencer Reviews contains a more comprehensive list of reviews. This also allows for content to be found more easily so you don’t have to dig through older articles/collections to find single reviews.
  • Mini reviews will allow for some easier content creation on my part so I can continue to maintain writing in advance while working on larger posts that I can pour a lot of love and effort into. Basically, these will add to the quality of life here on the site.

What can you expect of a mini review? As I mentioned, I have done a few of these already. You can see some examples here:

They will be 1,000 word or less, each covering one or two main points about whatever I am reviewing. These will not be limited to just anime. I’ll be having these start up this Friday 5/11/18. Some titles you can expect to see from this series include:  Re:Zero, The Lost Village (Mayogia), Welcome to the Ballroom, Kiznaiver, and more!

I hope that you all welcome this small change to the Jon Spencer Reviews posting format. These mini reviews will not become the norm but they will be a new staple in the review lineup for each week. The benefits of this, “new” format should already be seenhere on the site but there are some that may come of it. Depending on how I work out the production schedule and some real life stuff (like if I get a job or not) I may even be able to release content with more frequency than 3x a week (MWF). No promises on that front, but this should allow for more growth and creative output regardless.

Have a question or concern about the format? Feel free to let me know in the comments below or email me at jonspencerreviews@gmail.com. Naturally, if you think this is an awesome idea, be sure to let me know that too! There are other changes I would like to make to the site, like upgrading to a premium account, so if you would like to help me get there please head on over to my Ko-fi and buy me a coffee or two. I look forward to seeing you back here soon, and as always, thanks for reading!

  1. I started doing Bite-Sized Reviews over at Cheap Boss Attack and it has worked out great. I’ve limited myself to doing them only for smaller games, but it’s certainly allowed me to cover more than I would have had I stuck to doing full-lengths for *everything*. What is the game, why should you care, where does it go wrong, and is it worth your time are the only four questions I answer.

    1. Glad to hear this format works well for others 🙂

      Sometimes I just don’t have a ton to say or I have one main point to explore but not much else. So I’m excited to have the format be officially instated here!
