Talk about trying way too hard. 'im cool guys really look! right here im cool too! bangin tons of the hotties haha right?!'

Evolution doesn't hardwire you to be obnoxious about your sexuality, that's a personal choice.

There isn't any single reason, its a combination of factors. Trevellian is right though, adoption by a core base who effectively advertise for others was a big part of it. Sony having twitch early on was a very smart move.

Even worse is that she's not even hot.

Yeah, now if it were Jade Raymond this would be newsworthy. I'd be starting a gaming new site tomorrow and going and knocking on her door the day after. Christ, I'd have to be a good dozen beers and several shots in to even give that chick a second glance. Then again, I suppose most of those guys are lucky if they've ever gotten any play in their lives at all.

The fact that the irony in your last statement there is lost on you is really bizarre. Here's a hint, read your opening sentences. Now read the last part again. Now repeat until you understand.

There are many companies that either embargo or withhold review copies, it doesn't always mean the game is horrible. Of course in this case its EA so all bets are off.

Can you think of any other reason to withold review copies other then that the game is rather mediocre at best, or just plain broken at worst? And please dont say piracy...

There's a school of thought on the publishing side of the industry that demos and early review copies mean less sales. The logic behind it is something like you'll always be convincing at least one person not to buy it even while another is pleased.

I don't personally believe in it but this isn't a new practice, Ubisoft embargoes everything, Activision does and so forth. Sometimes they also don't bother sending out review copies.

I thought the series peaked with FF6, everything since then has been trying to tell stories no one cares about with bad characters and average gameplay.

Is this more Warface and Hunt? It's not that Crytek can't make games, they just stopped making games people want to play.

It's that you literally added nothing to the discussion with the "mediocre" comment.

It's all been said already here and in reviews, you are just trying way too hard to defend the game and refuse to see it. That is all

Calm thyself, Trev. We're only going off what we're reading here. It's not like they put it into any sort of context. It's not like we could know he was joking unless we watched it, as you said.

It helps if you actually read the text in the first place too.

Says the moron who has obvious reading comprehension problems. And you wonder why everyone knows you're stupid?

You of all people should not claim that you speak for 'everyone'.

This probably won't enrich Mojang significantly and OR will likely be a fledgling platform at best. No one is selling out, where's the beef?

I've played it. It's not a good game and most of the reviews and others posting about it are bang on. His comment was an obvious attempt to deflect from any criticism.

Haha, first CJ_Parker's metaphorical gamer panties and now yours too!? Your retort makes so, so little sense in the context of my comment that only one person's insecurity shows here, Redmask

You're the one trying way too hard to defend this because you can't handle the fact that you might like a game that others don't like, talk about panties in a twist

When you abandon your principles for money that's called selling out.

There is such a thing as changing ones mind, something you probably don't understand because you seem to confuse stubbornness and wilful ignorance with standing on principle.

Maybe he realized that just because Facebook invested heavily in Oculus Rift doesn't automatically exempt it from being useful technology that might be a good fit for games.

People generally suck at gaming and judging games from an objective point of view.

Maybe you suck at gaming but don't presume to speak for the rest of us. It's a bad game, sorry you're too defensive about a video game but that insecurity is your problem, not mine.

News Comments > Play Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare for Free
22. Re: Play Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare for Free Aug 17, 2014, 23:27 Redmask
 
Origin has a free 72 hour deal going on so I figured I would give this a shot.

The game first refused to run in full screen mode, after some digging I saw other users recommending a config file fix, no clue why this was necessary as this PC is freshly imaged without any problems or crapware, drivers up to date and well over spec.

Just starting out with Garden Ops or whatever its called, matchmaking failed 8 out of 10 tries with various problems or hangs. This game makes the terrible oversight of having forced connection windows without a cancel button which makes the whole process even worse. I finally got in game and it was laggy as hell. Before someone goes there I'm sitting on a fiber connection. Ok maybe its the host, try again. Same thing. Try again same thing. The more players the more lag there seems to be too. Clearly a netcode related problem as the game has horrible hitching and warping.

Tired of that bullshit I finally hosted a game myself, so far so good. I pick my character and play, its alright but nothing special. I like the customization system and the game has some charm but its ultimately a pretty average third person shooter with some console netcode that they didn't bother to fix up for the PC.

Even if that's so, he's promoting the practice, raising money around it, and using their copyrighted materials to do so.

Bad argument, its a tool to run something, its not the material itself.
