19. Skeptic Jul 24, 2013, 20:34 JohnBirshire
 
Seems like Saints Row 3 just came out, plus they rushed rushed rushed this game in order to come out before GTAV, even after having financial difficulty nontheless. I am skeptical about this one.

I can't wait for the GOTY release!

Amen. It is simultaneously hysterical and absurd to see all these "GOTY" editions pop up for games that were above average at best, happens all the time. *cough* Borderlands *cough*

Chivalry is a great buy, I paid $10 for it and have put in 200+ hours so far.

Oh I certainly understand the genre, I played Dota and League of Legends pretty extensively. Dota 2 just felt like more of the same, nothing new, just the exact same thing.

I tried Dota 2, but got bored, it just felt extremely generic. Is there anything that differentiates it from every other game in the genre?

Some people hype it up like it is one of the best games they've ever played, what am I not seeing?

2. Publicity stunt... Jul 18, 2013, 12:58 JohnBirshire
 
"Pay to win" is the number 1 complaint of any Free to Play competitive game, and every company in the business knows the backlash would be catastrophic and destroy their game. I have no doubt in my mind whatsoever that they leaked "plans" to do it, just so they could turn around and say "Nevermind, we listened to our community and changed our minds" afterwards, and look like the good guy. Publicity stunt, nothing more.

I love it how they keep doing "Free weekends" on games that often cost $5. I'd think if someone was going to buy it by now, they would have.

Sweet, a game that routinely sells for $2 is free this weekend, thanks Steam! Keep up the good work!

Sarcasm aside, I actually did buy this game for $2 last year, and played it 50 hours, it's well worth playing.

Naming your game something that the majority of gamers can't spell correctly = instant failure. This game will be a dud.

7. Yawn... May 27, 2013, 14:00 JohnBirshire
 
After the breakthrough worldwide sensation that took the gaming world by storm, Minecraft, the visionary independent developer's next grand phenomenon...a card game. *crickets* Well, maybe not so visionary after all.

Syndicate Wars wasn't a masterpiece though, that game was a steaming pile of shit. And this is from someone who considers Syndicate to be his 3rd greatest game of all time, only behind Arena: The Elder Scrolls and Ultima 7.

Yep. For kiddies like yourself with an attention span shorter than your penis who need non-stop "badda-boom!" ... "badda-boom!" action, the TES games may in fact be a bit boring.
For us adults it's a slightly different story. Maybe you'll understand in a decade or so when you're in your teens.


Wow. That was one of the most definitive troll burnings Ive ever seen in over 20 years of internet access. This guy is pro!

1. Science Fiction... Apr 28, 2013, 14:36 JohnBirshire
 
I took a Science Fiction course when I was in college, and it was honestly one of the most difficult courses I had completed. Science Fiction can be really deep, especially during the "Golden Age".

7. Many "FTP" games still have plenty of subscribers. Apr 25, 2013, 19:57 JohnBirshire
 
People keep flaming Steam for suddenly having a new subscription service by stating most games are free to play nowadays. This isn't quite true however, as most of them might as well be called free to "demo". Have you seen the restrictions and things you miss out on by not subscribing for most of them? Trust me, most "FTP" games still have plenty of subscribers.

5. Darkfall relaunch worth playing? Apr 25, 2013, 18:34 JohnBirshire
 
I loved the open world PvP nature of early Ultima Online and Asherons Call Darktide, and wouldn't mind this type of environment again. However I skipped the first Darkfall due to awful reviews and the fact that there was no skill/stat cap. I don't want to spend 90% of my time training skills against mobs in a "PvP" game. Is this relaunch different? I also read that this game is heavily crafting focused, another thing at odds with a "PvP" themed game, I don't want to have to spend countless hours crafting just to PvP. Is it an actual requirement?

Lame. Playing off the goodwill created by other Bethesda titles to announce something unrelated. They got their publicity, but they pissed off a lot of people too.

I agree. There was a bunch of hoopla over this announcement, and the climax fizzled. A surival horror game from the makers of Resident Evil? Who gives a shit. Next time just announce it without all this fanfare making people believe its something more significant.

7. 4D is terrible... Apr 18, 2013, 12:43 JohnBirshire
 
Universal Studios has been doing it for awhile, most people hate it. The worst part is when they spray water in your eyes anytime water appears onscreen, its rather disgusting. Hopefully that movie gimmick stays in Japan.
