Notably, Metacritic forces game devs to look at an aggregate of gamer's scores. Something that game devs generally dont bother doing or dont like doing.

And there it is on one web page that EVERYBODY knows about in the gaming industry.

That aggregate gamer score doesnt express everything important of course, but it says something about the desirability of a particular game to consumers.

Metacritic for all of its faults offers insights into the game consumer's mind that arent offered in any other way.

Warren should realize that metacritic can be a useful tool for game devs, if taken with a grain of salt.


I use it as a jumping off point for various industry reviews, but there's no way in hell I'd read the end user side...


Yeah but say a game you were thinking about buying got 50% user score on metacritic. IE half the users who tried it wrote unfavorable reviews on it. Wouldnt that strike you as particularly damning? You can say a lot of things about particular reviews and 0 point reviews and 10/10 reviews, but the average score rarely lies when you have a large enough sample.

Note: Im talking about user reviews, not paid 'professional' reviews.
No because people just vote 0 or 10 these days.

It should just be did you enjoy the game or not. That's all people want to know. If they enjoy XX game with they enjoy this XX game. People will make up their own mind about price (I hope/believe).

Great, as if I needed help in that area. A couple of the worst:

* Kids born in 1995, graduated from HS this year.
* Super Mario 64 is 17 years old.
* The "Rugrats" would now be in their 20s.
* "Home Alone" was released closer to the Moon Landing than to now.

Original Karate Kid is now 51. Fuck I'm old
I miss Rugrats, awesome show... And AAAAAHHHHHHH Real Monsters...

HEY FOOTBALL HEAD!, Hey Arnold...

Now. The cartoons are shite. Ben 10? F*** off!

Count Duckula anyone?

SUPER TED!

Yeah, people get WAY too hung up on AI in games. It only needs to be believable for me. In fact, I prefer dumb AI; the AI in Deus Ex was way stupid but it made for a better game IMO. With 'realistic' AI stealth games would be all but impossible for me. Cue the "console retard" comments, but whatever. I deserve to be entertained when I spend money on a game as much as the 'elite super awesome' gamers (like every loudmouth blowhard on Bluenews, for example ).
I love bad rag doll, I want to see them fly across the room when I shoot them with a shot gun, it's funny!

You should be able to shoot a corpse across the floor with an MG... that's... FUN!

why do they take the fun away

He also knows his shit. And well, the irony of you posting that is thick indeed.
No I have talked with him, he's a complete dick. And full of his own shit, he thinks VERY highly of himself.

Nah... lower. Many times now I've purchases new games at $25ish from GMG, so... that is my now expected price, because I'm cheap

Retail is not going away. Sure it will probably drop to a fraction of its former strength in sales but there will always be a demand for physical copies, people like to own 'physical' things.
Indeed, had a look today and the prices in AUS stores are getting better.

And they have had that for the entire Xbox 360 and PS3 generation. They aren't making a dramatic leap forward and they haven't recently, they are being cheap bastards.

You are delusional if you think anyone is being a cheap bastard with regards to AAA game development. The point which sailed over your head was that visually games look very impressive already, it's design that needs to be expanded significantly. A big part of the reason games are so expensive to make is the need to incessantly ramp up visuals to please a crowd who judges games solely based on them.

Go have a look at CryTek's Sanbox, have a play around. The tools are HERE and they are amazing tools. You don't need to be that talented to create amazing looking levels.

Ok, we'll await your great game then, looking forward to the no effort product that will move everything forward since its so easy.
Lol, deary me.

Looks like fun. I prefer exploring to building, hence why I played Terraria much more than Minecraft.

And this looks more like 3D Dot Game Heroes. Which was awesome.
You should give the Millenaire Mod a go, it's awesome, gives Minecraft a (much needed) purpose!

And yes, Cube World looks good. Although shaded blocks is a little bit too bland... I think. Definitely need some texture to them.

I also couldn't get into Defiance show/series after two episodes.
Lol, you have to watch more than that to get into a show sometimes. Took half a season for the Event to "get good", then it was cancelled It was still a bit meh, better than Flashforward show, not as good acting but still a bit better. What else didn' survive that period... V? eh... that was...

I try not to watch shows until there is 2 seasons now. You can deal with 2 seasons. 1 season of a show is just a tease.

Unfortunately the H.G. Wells spinoff is dead. W13's "3 2 1" was the backdoor pilot, and while it did well SyFy(NBC Uni) decided to produce Defiance instead.
I haven't seen any news stating it's been killed off, do you know different? It may very well look like it's never going to happen but... never know. Time is ticking, they probably don't have any money left though
