Did anyone else notice over on the Mod Shops review of Bioshock Infinity that they gave the game a score of 4/5 stars. But in the rating categories they gave it perfect 5s across the board. Some please explain to me where these guys learned to do math?

According to their score card, it should be a 5/5 I guess they make crap up when it comes to making a final verdict and donít follow their own scoring system. Weird!!!

I couldnt find the 4/5 rating, only the individual 5/5's and their 'Perfect' verdict?

LOL, I just checked, and they changed it. I posted a message about their score and someone must have saw that they made a mistake.

This is no real surprise. EA's attempts to make this a F2P game were entirely flawed. They didn't seem to understand that you make money with F2P by having people want to play the game. If you put massive restrictions in the way of playing right at the start, people are going to check it out for 5 minutes, get frustrated, and stop playing.

Well said,

This is what happened with me, I came I looked and EA said ďWe donít serve your kind hereĒ So I never looked back. Way too many restrictions. When they locked out my UI Bars and locked me out of most of the Ten million Credits I have. I said a hearty Fuck U to EA and never went back.

Iím sorry, but I have to laugh and shake my head when I read this kind of comments. So, 10 to 15 hours of game play is not worth 60 dollars. But many of the same people claiming that this game is not worth that price will go out and have gone out and spent just as much on a 5 hour game like COD.

How do you all justify that reasoning when this game is far superiour in all regards? Iím truly baffled at comments like this. Just because a game does not have MP does not make that game any less of a game especially when the game play and story are far better.

Wow, your ASSumptions are astounding. Why would you ASSume that I would make the statement I did if I previously went out and spent $60 on a 5-hour CoD game? Look up the definition of strawman. Your argument is ridiculous.

I'll have just as much fun in a year playing this game for $20 as you do now playing it for $60. Enjoy.

your comments tell me one thing about you, and that is you are a Cheap ASShole!!

I'll wait until it hits about the $20 price point.

Are you sure about that? A great many people play CoD for multiplayer, which gives them hundreds of hours play. I doubt that many people who are claiming this isn't worth the price bought the latest CoD just for single player.

Letís be totally honest here about COD. In all of the COD games released and the MP portion of the game. What is really different about each of those MP games? Truthfully I saw not a lot of difference except newer maps. Itís the same BS over and over. Kill me, kill you. Boring!!! So basically you got kids buying this game for newer weapons that in the end all do pretty much the same thing and some different maps to play on. Again, boring!

Checkpoint system combined with resurrection drives me nuts.
So what does that mean, checkpoint system? And why does it suck? By resurrection do you mean something like the old Vita chamber system? No way to turn it off?

I was going to wait for the price to come down but goddamit if I don't have a stinkin 4-day weekend coming up.

Truthfully, if you guys did not take advantage of all the pre Sales then you lost out. But you will not be disappointed in the game. Itís been an absolute blast. It was getting pretty late for me last night and because I had to go to work today, I did not want to stop playing it. It just pulls you in and keeps you wanting to play more. Just sitting here counting down the hours till I can get home and play some more.

Verno, I have not had any crashes related to Check points. Personally I have not had any of that happen to me. If you guys own an NVidia card you should update your drivers, new ones came out yesterday for this game.


BTW, I think you should be able to return, I remember finding a key and it told me that you can return to areas you had already visited. I did that since there was a chest I left behind that I found the key.

Ill just add this about the start of the game; It blew me away when youíre in the city walking around exploring and enjoying the setting. Then you come to a part in the game where you were not expecting what is about to happen and all hell breaks loose. That was a great opening.

I spent three hours playing the game last night. Absolutely love the game and the environments. The actions has been really good and the AI is fun to watch and tricky how they dodge you when youíre trying to attack them.

By far this is the best game out this year and in a long while. I almost took today off just to try and finish the game, but decided I want to take my time and enjoy this masterpiece.

It defiantly deserves many of those high rated scores itís been getting. 9.6 Without a doubt.

I really tried to like this game a lot. Love how it is and all but the Magic system is just obnoxious to try and learn and remember when in a sticky combat situation. Too damn many combos to try and recall. You end up only using a few that you like or remember.

Come on Verno, just admit it, your the dirty pirate

Somehow, I seriously doubt that they will be using the funds from this game fully. When they sit here and defend that they we will be using the funds just for the game. That raises a red flag to me. And 700K to add Chris, I dont see it.

Are you high? There are several stretch goal in between the current funding level and the Chris Avellone stretch goal so they aren't spending even remotely near 700k on hiring Chris Avellone + a lot of the money is being spent on other things like art, animation, code, etc to go with his writing/design work.

So even the 150k between the prior stretch goal and the Chris Avellone stretch goal isn't Chris's fee. 150k USD more in pledges implies more Amazon and kickstarter fees and more used on rewards. So the budget of the game won't be increased by that full amount.

Excuse me for not believing you, but you sound like an advocate supporter or work for them. My feelings on Kick starters are there are no checks and balances on how they are using the money.

Just because someone puts up a KS page and says I need 1 Million to make this happen, does not mean that they are using all of that money to fund the project. Itís idiotic to even assume that they are using all of the money as they say they are.

Are you sure you are not one of their stretch goals?

I donít see this being true, I donít know how anyone could possibly spend 200 Million on developing and advertising a game. You would be pretty much out of your mind to do that. I look at games and wonder how anyone could possibly spend 10 or 20 million on developing a game. Most likely this is just a rumor.

Team Meat: DRM worse for devs than piracyÖ

Beautiful.

He went on to say that consumers were much more likely to buy from distributors they trust rather than ones they have been frustrated or slighted by before, with consumer confidence playing a huge role in how they spend money.

Holy shit, someone gets it.

Now, if only more publishers would get it...

Most of them wont, they are too busy blaming piracy rather than trying to understand why it happens. As this guy stated, how do you determine what would be a sale verses those who pirated a game. I have always believed that.

Most of the games pirated are by people who had no intention of ever buying a game. And yes there are some who would buy if it was not easy to pirate it. But the publishers are to busy blaming pirates for their own failures on making a game thatís worth buying. How many times have many of us been burnt by a bad game? I canít even count how many times over the past 15 years.

This is a Ruse; EA thinks that if they get this guy to step down, people will lay the blame solely on this guy for all of EAS short coming in the past few years. This nothing but a move to try and get people to have that happy feel good feeling. Sorry EA your Jedi Mind tricks donít work on me.

I love how they support mods, but not hacks. Since when is a mod not a hack to the game? Anytime you use a mod, itís a way of changing how the game works. That is a hack no matter how you try to paint it.

Blizzard has lost its creativity; they are now a company that is all about long development cycles and pretty CGI. Short on story and overpriced.

When was the last time blizzard came up with a new game? A completely different IP that has nothing to do with their Three Prime Evils? Thatís right, nothing!

The keep force feeding the masses with updated games that are nothing more than an over lay of new graphics over an old concept.
