“Every opinion is respected…”
Hey everyone! Lexuzze Tablante here, the Editor-in-Chief and founder of Sirus Gaming Philippines. I’ve been a gamer for 15 years, and followed a lot of online publication and gaming magazines. It’s my sole job and purpose to oversee what happens in our reviews and what my staff and contributors are doing. And my second responsibility as a editor-in-chief means that I will make sure that everyone in our team follows the review policy. One thing I don’t tolerate within my group: BIASED REVIEWS. Sirus Gaming’s goal is to give our audience guidance and help on games they purchase. Will it be worth it? Or is it just going to be another waste of money? Our reviews will be monitored closely by myself, the executive editor, and the assistant editor.
What we want to have on our reviews is the balance between both Objective and Subjective. Reviews are always based on our opinions but that is not everything that readers just want to see, right? Readers also want facts on the game and what they offer, not just pure opinions. Video-games are still products, and every product subjected to a review should have a balance of both opinion and fact. Credibility is what we want to maintain.
In Sirus Gaming, we receive review copies from the developers and publishers. These reviews have embargoes that we follow. As journalists, we respect these embargoes as this is one aspect where our website’s credibility is based on. If a review copy is not provided to us then we purchase the game from our own pockets and that means there are no embargoes holding off our reviews.
Here are our scores:
