This peer review discussion has been closed.
Since this article is not eligible under the good article criteria for want of stability until it is released, it needs an "individual quality audit" peer review in order to co-exist with an upcoming good topic nomination for Action Button Entertainment. I'd appreciate any feedback. @CR4ZE, since you've already read the article with the GA review, would you like to start? czar  13:51, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Comments from CR4ZE

Sure. I only have a couple of small things for want of brilliant prose.

  • Is the game presented in 2D or 3D? Is it top-down? I wasn't clear on this. (Before seeing it online).
  • A screenshot would be wonderful, and would solve the problem of not knowing what the game looks like. Have you contacted Action Button? If not, what about something non-free and low-res as a placeholder?
  • "The game's triangles and projectiles ...". Are the triangles and projectiles conceived as a sport without narrative or artifice, or are you referring to the game?
  • "that picked up speed ...". What is it that picked up speed exactly? Also, this sentence is a little "game"-y.
  • "Polygon's Tracey Lien described their process ...". Who is the "they" in this sentence?
  • "Rogers livestreams prerelease sessions". Do you mean he has in the past, or that he constantly livestreams? If he does, that begs the question as to how often he does it. You could just insert "has" after "Rogers" and say "livestreamed". Also, wouldn't you hyphen it as "pre-release"?
  • "and his excitement for local multiplayer..."—He thought about his excitement? Needs a little clarity. Could this work better as two sentences?
  • "having learned Videoball" sounds like it should be "having learned Videoball's gameplay" to me.

That's it. When you're finished, do I...support it for being good but not a good article, or...? CR4ZE (tc) 02:20, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

How about pretty-good-but-not-good-enough? Thanks for the review—appreciate it. I'll have more time to fix things next weekend czar  02:56, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
@CR4ZE, all right. I think I addressed the above. Is there anything else? Some notes: (1) Yes, Rogers has said he was getting me stuff several times, but, well, life. If he doesn't respond to my next reply, I'll upload something with a FUR. (2) NOAD doesn't use a hyphen in "prerelease", so its' good enough for me czar  23:05, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Nice work. Even though the article is ineligible under the good article criteria, it is of sufficient quality to be included in a good topic. It is in the hands of an experienced editor, and I expect it to retain such quality as it expands out following the game's launch. CR4ZE (tc) 04:21, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
So what do you think of Infamous Second Son? ;-) CR4ZE (tc) 04:21, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
