|My face when I'm deciding what ratings to give.|

This is the second part of my editorial about review score ratings. While part one looked at the "cursed" 7/10 and how to avoid it, this article will discuss the difficulties of using an unadjusted (i.e. non-inflated) rating scale, focusing on the lower side of the scale.
The inflation of review scores, the cursed 7/10, and a few ways to overcome them [Rating Editorial Part 1]
So, I'm about three quarters of the way through Warcraft III, but I'm in desperate need of a break, and, in addition, I've got my first big English paper (nearly 20% of my grade!) due in four days. What this means for you is that I won't have a review up for a little while yet, so I decided to post a short (it's me, so you know that's a lie and that this is going to be really long) editorial to help tide you over, in case my Jing: King of Bandits review wasn't enough. This editorial is about the inflation of review scores, the "cursed 7/10," and a few ways to deal with them.

So, I'm still feeling pretty bad about that 20 day "hiatus" I took, and about the fact that there are probably going to be more of them. I want to make up for this somehow, my weekend is (relatively) free, and I just finished watching Baccano! (yes, just like Skip Beat!, the exclamation point is part of the title) for the second time, so you're getting a review! Baccano! is a 13 episode (16, if you count the 3 that were direct to DVD) anime that ran from July to November in 2007. It was made by Brain's Base.

So first off, I apologize for the lateness of this review. Between school and...well, school, my schedule has been very, very busy. As an apology for this, I went and posted a second review that I somehow managed to get written while taking breaks from this one. So, with that out of the way, I hope you'll forgive me, and enjoy both my reviews. Onto the matter at hand. El Cazador De La Bruja (Spanish for "The Witch Hunter") is a 26 episode anime from 2007. It was made by Bee Train and is the third and final installment of their "girls with guns" trilogy.
So, in order to make up for not posting any new reviews for 20 days, today you get two reviews, one game and one anime. The game review is for Ghost Recon, a PC game made by Red Storm Entertainment in 2001. It is a tactical first person shooter, where the player controls the "Ghosts," elite rangers who are sent into Georgia on a peacekeeping mission and end up fighting Russian Ultra-nationalists who want to resurrect the Soviet Union (the game is set in 2008).
