All of that is just sort of nitpicking, though, because the main point is that the game just isn't any fun and 90% of the ginormous love-fest reviews that it got sound like they were written by Naughty Dog's marketing department.

Well that's being overly harsh, but yeah, the game isn't mindblowing in the slightest. The presentation may be off the charts but I have a nagging feeling every time I play that I've done this all before.

Some people don't like "cinematic" games (or are just tired of them). A game may do everything right but it isn't going to please everyone without doing something new. I haven't even finished it yet because a quirky little action platformer on Steam I'd never heard of before piqued my interest before hopelessly devouring my past few days.

Can't wait to see the custom heatsink options. Should I shave my head before applying thermal paste?

Rising Storm is 50% off GMG and another 10% w/ voucher. I find it much more fun than RO2 was.

Squeenix are under the impression the Final Fantasy IP justifies overpricing their seemingly inexhaustible supply of rereleases.

Don't like roguelikes. Permadeath thing kills it for me.

I am however enjoying the hell out of Rogue Legacy. Although it features more player deaths per capita than 99.9% of other games, there's still persistent progression.

This is a free to play game (or at least it was?).



Oh, and it's terrible.

News Comments > It Came from E3 2013, Part Six

The "tropes in video games" video was misguided, noneducational, unentertaining nonsense. That's why it didn't get any supporters here. Women in video games ARE one-dimensional, helpess, and completely unrealistically portrayed... but so are men. Damsel in distress permeates every narrative outlet, why would video games be excepted?

This whole (non issue) goes back to basic marketing. The target market for most video games is 15-30 males. Elizabeth wasn't on the cover of Infinite because Ken Levine thought frat boys might buy a BioShock game if it had a gun-wielding dude on the cover. E3 is unequivocally used to sell products, and sex sells, a fact which isn't going to change without hell having frozen over, first. Ergo, boobs at E3.

I doubt they had to make any special considerations in having a game built for Win7 operational on Vista.

Or maybe the lack of women here has to do with women not being "hardcore" enough to frequent PC gaming-centered, text-heavy news web sites? Sure a lot of women game nowadays but they don't seem to care about them beyond playing them. It takes a pretty geeky geek to show up here posting diatribes about the fall of id Software or the rise of the MOBA.

If one needs to hire scantily clad women to attract people to one's booth at E3, maybe one should consider bringing a better product to E3?

Hey you should start posting Final Bosman, the guy is very honest, affable, and insightful in his (now weekly) videogaming op-eds.

Unfinished projects which have not been greenlit should not be sold on Steam. Period.

If more games made money, and all games made more money, more games would be made.

And then fewer games would make money because 95% of the customer base can't afford to buy more games for $60-$70 each, and then fewer publishers would be willing to take risks, and then fewer games would be made.
