Hey guys

I just checked metacritic to see how Starward Rogue is doing and there are no reviews at all up. Is this something we should be worried about? Or is metacritic just not that important anymore?

I honestly am not sure how relevant it is at all now.

Yeah, probably not that relevant, at least in terms of user reviews, anyway.  Steam has got that covered, certainly.

Steam reviews have basically made Metacritic irrelevant. And thank gawds for that. Anytime there's a fuss about user reviews, it's usually the Steam ones.

I dunno about everyone else, but I pretty much just plain forgot that Metacritic even existed. 

Let it remain banished to the void, where it belongs.  Always hated that site, so much...
