are we sure that this isn't a remake of "They Live" since I believe that's where the phrase "I'm here to to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and I'm all out of gum." originated from.

if ANYONE buys this game they should have men in suits come to their residence to pack up all of their tablets, laptops and computers into a neat little box and issue them with a letter that says "YOU DON'T DESERVE TECHNOLOGY"


EDIT:

RAMBO: The Video Game

Featuring some guy that doesn't look like Rambo.

Man, that story about that 8-year-old is depressing. Poor kid...

It is quite sad. But why didn't any of those 6 adults stop that kid from going back into the fire.

depending on how good this looks, its gonna be a buy from me.

Easily the best in the series.



ok now that i've seen the screenshots - no thanks. Doesn't look HD or remastered at all to me.

The community made mods crap all over this "HD" version

BAHAHAAH 3/10 - you heard it here first folks @ BluesReviewsPreviews


They could have at least made him look like Stallone... His head looks way too big for starters, not to mention he looks like a mix of the characters from Welcome back Cotter...

The bad thing is once you get superpowers less than 1 hour into the campaign you never have to drive again. It's all running and leaping across skyscrapers like somekinda Superman/Flash/Spiderman hybrid.
The matrix has you Neo.

Has the conversation been had?

What happens if you take both pills?

you get your stomach pumped

News Comments > Dark Souls II "Cursed" Trailer
10. Re: Dark Souls II Jan 15, 2014, 18:29 bigspender
 
well i hope the guy that made DSfix is ready to make a DS2fix lol

The first game was a disaster of a port - but the gameplay was just so damn good - it was the first game in a long time I felt challanged, and in a way that required skill and cunning to overcome the challanges in various ways. Where as most games are either too easy because they hold your hand throughout the entire experience, or they are hard in the wrong way and beating them requires something as non-fun as memorizing where stuff pops out from (house of the dead syndrome).


EDIT: also one of the best coop experiences I've enjoyed. And I love coop. It really captured that dungeon crawl feel that I haven't gotten out any games of recent times.

Fixed that for you.

There's nothing to gain from PC fragmentation. We're already a minority.
Or it could be a resurgence for PC gaming if people just switch to Steam OS. Better performance (hopefully), less clutter. One can dream

I'll take the percieved performance hit for the fact I can do everything in a multi-tasking environment. Nothing worse than having all of these seperate systems like iPads and tablets and consoles where you can't do things efficiently.

Gaming PC with Windows just does everything you ever need it to do, and all at the same time.

wow, another great game that will be dead before it is even released.

If i was a AAA game developer, I would grab the unreal engine and throw a full team of resources on developing a clone of this game and beat them to it, with better graphics, interfaces and controls.

dunno about anyone else but Aliens: Colonial Marines was the biggest bummer for 2013 if not of the decade.

News Comments > Cliff Bleszinski's PC Shooter Plans
9. Re: Cliff Bleszinski's PC Shooter Plans Dec 11, 2013, 22:44 bigspender
 
Man I'm so tired of people saying "we're going back to our roots" - when I hear people say that, I know the project is going to be a failure, whether its games, books, music, movies etc.

While it might not be an economical failure, artistically it always is, and certainly never comes close to the glory of the originals. The artist/director/designer rarely seem to know what made their product successful in the first place and tend to miss the point in these back to roots projects. It always ends up feeling like a project made by 12 y.o. fans rather the original person/people. Like they have a checklist of stuff that has been collected from forums that are popular aspects that they will put into the project - none of which are actually what made the original successful. They are too busy adding in these check listed items that they miss the reason the original was successful entirely.

More often than not it comes off as an old white guy trying so desperately to prove that he's not aging that in the process only further concretes his how far he has aged, and how far the world has moved on.

What I'm talking is things like:

-The new Robocop movie.

-Terminator 3 - just B version of the 1st two movies, yet nothing like them.

-AvP 2 / Prometheus(it was basically just the "cool" bits from Aliens 1&2 as well as Predator 1 , but missing the essence of what made those movies great)

-Star Wars prequels

-Expendables movies (lol)

-Avatar - well at least it was pretty.

-Every Metallica album since the napster incident. And pretty much every band that have made a comeback of some sort.

-Doom 3

-Rage

-Fallout 3 - most of the bits were there, but did it capture the mood of the originals? nope.

-Resident Evil 5/6

-Natural Selection 2

-Battlefield 3

-Diablo 3

-CoD Ghosts

While there might be to enjoy about all the stuff I've listed, none of it comes close to the impact the originals made, despite quite often finding a new audience. And thats the thing, despite how hard they try, it very rarely makes the original audience happy that made it popular or a cult classic in the first place.


I guess that's a really long way to say that I expect this project to be mediocre and most of its success will be riding on the past successes of its creator.


/Rant
