Have any of these iPhone issues happened in the US or Europe?

Not that I have ever heard about or read. Funny, how these things only seem to be happening in China isnít it?

Land or the counterfeiters and fake cheaply made products.

InBlack,

I canít give you an answer dude, because there is no way to control those sites when big publishers strong arm these sites with blackout threats and support. As I said, I read reviews from sites, but I do not base my decision on buying a game from these sites. I first listen to what many of you are saying in here and my own personal preferences on likes and dislikes on games.

So, if you are looking for an answer on how to stop these guys. youíre not going to find it. Because the reality of it, there is too much money changing hands to control or stop it.

My personal dislike is Metacritic, mainly because I have seen where people play the follow the crowd and beat up on a game. Rating games with a 1 star when a game is actually much better than that. There are some shitty games out there that do rate that. But Iíve seen some that were rated poorly that are not even close to that.

Two can play this game:

Why do some most professional game reviewers post bullshit positive reviews?

The problem is the rating system is utter crap all the way around. Users should NOT be able to write a review either positive or negative unless they actually own the title they are complaining about. Places like steam have shown how people come in the forums and complain about games they donít even own.

Metaritic is the absolute worst site when it comes to people just ranting about how they hate something when in reality its just someone over reacting and going along with the crowd when it comes to bashing a game and not an actual review about the game.

I like how Newegg has their rating system, you have to be logged in and it will show that you actually own the product you are reviewing/rating.

Ok, let me ask you this then. What's worse? A few jerkwads posting crap from their mom's basement, or most professional reviewers skewing their ratings and scoring a game much better than it deserves on popular and frequented websites?

Sorry, been a really busy day, All I can say dude, is that when it comes to Metacritic, I don't even pay attention to it. Those reviews are very skewed and biased. Its all based on users and when I see comments from people about what metacritic says and that's how they base their buying decisions on. I just shake my head and wonder where peoples heads really are at times.

Not really a review, but a personal experience. long ago when Dune came out. It was one of the first games to set off the RTS standard. Well, I was at the store asked the clerk there about the game. And his impression was the game sucked. Needless to say, this was a very kick ass game in its day. So what did this guy who supposedly knows games really know? Nothing!!

I read reviews, but I'm very Leary about what they say and how I go about buying games. as should all when reading reviews.

I'm disappointed that Raven isn't developing it. Their violence is always so satisfying, even in a Star Wars game.

Raven has become an afterthought for games anymore. Itís a shame too because they did make some really great games in their day.

As for this getting delayed, my thoughts are developers at some point are going to have to make a decision on what platform m to develop a game on and drop the old consoles at some point. As we are seeing, all this is going to do is drive up the cost of games and future delays the release.

Still waiting for a proper 2D sequel to Dawn of Sorrow.


you've got to be referring to the graphics, because the controls for this game are utter shit. This game didn't last but 5 mins on my pc until I removed it.

This game screams console port, and demands a controller to even play it.

A shame too, Patrick Stewarts narrating was kewl. but game play wise what a piece of shit.
its a beat em up - your ass must be crazy if you aren't using a controller

Sorry bro, but I did not buy a pc to play games with a controller. I personally despise developers porting out games that require controller to even play their games.

I can usually play a game if itís got good controls, but the controls in this game and terrible. You canít strafe at the same time as walking forward. You canít do both at the same time on one. And the camera is annoying as hell too.

Seems awesome, imo.

Same here, I really enjoyed it, Elizabeth was a character you actually cared about and the story wasn't that bad either. I have no idea why some are saying the combat was a let down. That's like saying guns are not fun to shoot. confused!!!

Anyway, Looking forward to the Rapture DLC, sound fun.

Here is a dev post from the game's Community Hub on Steam as well:

Yes - we have both hotseat and online coop as well as versus mode. Versus mode ships in the release version, coop is a free update after launch

As Dev said, I'm optimistic, but I've been burnt in the past too on this. Ill wait it out. If it happens Ill buy it until then, sorry no dice.

Funny, how one thing like this can really cause a train wreck for a game. Too bad the devs didn't see this coming.

"Single player campaign based on the "Sin of Damnation" Space Hulk Ė Take on the Sin of Damnation campaign, which includes 3 brand new prequel missions and the 12 missions from the classic board game."

Is this campaign going to be co-operative too - or will the game's multiplayer only be competitive / head to head?

That is what I want to know too, The devs said early on that Coop would be in the game, but from what I can tell. Its not there. This just fell off my list of game to buy. It just became a steam sale down the road.

For some reason this story fills me with evil glee, I just want to see them crash and burn for the emotional damage they caused to all true gamers and fans of the 'old' Blizzard and Activision, saddling a successful company with debt is definitely a way to go towards achieving that goal.... Devil

By the time Vivendi is finished with their account, Blizzard will be a shadow of its self and a wiped out company. I never understood why they sold out to this trashy company to begin with. Now the Execs are going to raid it and run off with their pockets filled to some remote island and retire a fat cat.

I usually love most RTS games in general, but this game just pisses me off to no end. Blizz purposely made this game a tournament based MP game. 20 min skirmishes, and rush, rush, rush. Hate this style of RTS gaming.

Are you stupid or something? So, someone buys a cheap imitation to charge their phone and that cheap imitation fails and causes an issue. And now its apples fault? Give me a break!!

Thereís a reason why standards are in place when it comes to electronics and compliance. Go read about it and learn something before you put your foot in your mouth any deeper.

It's probably a mistake to get involved in this argument, but well, here I go.

I think everyone is just reading a bit too much into itBurns comment. I believe he was just stating that the title "season pass", needs work. Like he said, he knew full well he would only be getting 4 DLC, I doubt he feels entitled to anything else. It is just that for people, who
unlike him, are unaware of what "season pass" actually means, it is a bit misleading. Which I agree with, it just needs a more accurate title.

Just my two cents, I'm not here to continue the argument, just thought I could stop one.

A season, is just that. It refers to them telling us that with in one season. One year! they will release the promised DLC. ItBurn is over reacting and making a big deal out of this when all he has to do is use his god given common sense to figure it out and stop acting like a fool.

The thing with politicians is that you never agree to all they say. You always have to pick the lesser evil. And you can absolutely complain about the things he does. Also, it's an image, it wasn't meant to be a perfect representation of the problem in every way... You can absolutely complain about the season pass even if you bought it. Gearbox will probably not give a f*** about your complaining, since you voted with your wallet, but as an individual, you can absolutely say whatever you want, even if it pisses off people in the comments section of a random site on the internet.


Dude, give it a fucking rest already. You are a delusional idiot to sit here and bitch about DLC. You fricking got your 4 DLC worth wit the season pass what's your fucking problem? Stop your incisive bitching about what you think you are owed!!!

I'm just defending my opinion. I don't really care that much about the subject and I haven't tried to blow it out of proportions. It's actually the reactions to what I've said that are blown out of proportions. It's interesting how incredibly explosive some of you are on this trivial matter.

if its so trivial, why do you keep pushing the issue? Maybe its because your trolling?
