Goomba Stomp: I went on a date with Transistor a few weekends back. I took screenshots and scribbled mad, half-realized blatherings on various Post-It Notes, trying to prep myself for an (admittedly belated) review of the game, but what it comes down to is I just didn’t love it. I’m one “meh” opinion in a sea of stellar reviews. Transistor didn’t work for me, and that doesn’t add up to very much. But it got me thinking about what it means to go against the tide in the murky world of video game reviews.
