Total Playtime: 92 hours

Review Playlist:

JRPG Conference, now with four times the JRPGs

You will only have to wait a little bit longer for the next Animal Crossing.

I was really, really looking forward to Rune 2.

Imagine if Commander Keen's return was a mobile game.

Thank you to

- The 1001 Glitches of Fallout 76:

That was one long conference.
Also even if you count the games of XBox Game Pass that were shown, then we still won't get to the number 60.

I needed a change of pace.

Yes, I'm still working on it. Expect it around June or July. With that, it's back to editing with me.
Do you want some sweet, cheap, quality content in-between the reviews or do you wanna see the review earlier instead?

Game: Majora's Mask
Music: Gothic 1 - Old Camp

Review Playlist:

Jax got the ladders

Yes, this can also happen.

Good day,
we're here to give you videos. Mostly gaming videos, sometimes anime related videos, sometimes other stuff like discussions or just us having some fun playing a game, though that doesn't appear too often as the focus is set on reviews, into which most of the video editing work will go.

CriticalBytes consists of one person right now, I currently do this as a free-time project.
The other member was S, also called Jim. He has a lighter voice and appears in quite a few videos as well.

Our humor is a bit random at times but the crucial information of the games is what counts. Before you judge us based on prejudice, please watch the explanation of our ratings first.

With that in mind, we wish you a good time.
