Great feedback! Thanks - I applied almost all of them.
There were a few commas I kept in place because sometimes I like them before a conjunction.

In your Mortal Kombat X review at the beginning of the review it says: "At long last I've discovered the first great game of this generation (not counting the Wii U)." it should say instead "At long last, I've discovered the first great game of this generation (not counting the Wii U, and both the 3DS/PS Vita)."

The reason why I think the critic should modify that part about (not counting the Wii U) should also add the 3DS/PS Vita in the mix, is because, the critic did give some exclusive 3DS/PS Vita games such as Mario Kart 7, Fire Emblem Awakening, Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, The, Super Mario 3D Land, and Tearaway (The PS4 Tearaway game is not the same as the PS Vita version according to people online.) Whether the 8th Gen Handhelds such as the 3DS/PS Vita count or not is subjective, I think it does at this point as the quality in many of the best 3DS/PS Vita exclusive games are not that far off from what is out today at this point of time?

Honestly... I don't understand why some people nitpick his reviews like this... He isn't writing an encyclopedia or a manual... He writes game reviews.

...you can't even reach some of missiles. (should be 'some missiles' or 'some of the missiles')

In the 8/18 Bruce Lee review, not sure if it's a typo, but in the 5th line from the bottom:
While a bit on a blocky side, ... (should be 'the blocky side')

In the 8/11 Zelda review (4th line from the bottom):
The audio is the surprisingly effective.... (second 'the' should be deleted)

Pouncing on them causing them to splatter in a satisfying manner. (should be 'causes them')

The music a mixed bag, ... (should be 'The music is')

Also in Treasures of the Carribean (2nd line from the bottom):
....is still more enjoyable that I expected. (should be 'than', not 'that')

In the 7/4 Waialee Country Club review (6th line from the bottom):
(they always looks flat).... (should be 'look')

Also, in the 3rd line from the bottom:
The play-by-play guy sounds like he's reading to a second graders... (should be ' to a second grader' or 'to second graders')

And in the last line:
Waialee Country Club is isn't ('is' should be deleted) but it's below average as golf game go (should be 'games').

In the 7/4 Rampage 2 review (line 6):

I noticed a typo in the title of a game even though you spelled it correctly the name of the game isn't correct.

The game I'm talking about is Lightening Force for Sega Genesis.

You spelled it Lightning force which is the correct way to spell it but the title of the game is actually Lightening Force.

I just fixed these. I'm kind of embarrassed that there were so many errors. Glad they are fixed.
Funny about Lightening Force being spelling wrong.
Thanks guys.

Naming that game Lightening Force was such an embarrassing failure. Especially when it should have been called Thunder Force IV which is one of the best IP'S on the Genesis.

Grabbed by the Ghoulies for Xbox--the sentence should read "the premise revolves around..." rather than "the premise resolves around..."
