Hey, your money!

I just felt it didn't add enough stuff: the campaign is linear and the same each time.

which would seem to fall in the 5/8 range, or a "Buy it if you REALLY like the genre).

I debated the score for longer than I should. You can certainly argue that it could/should have gotten a 5, but when I compared it to some recent games I did that got a 5, I enjoyed it less, so I scored it less. Don't let the score matter too much: just read the review and decide for yourself, as you did. Too many people put too much emphasis on scores these days, gamers and publishers alike. I just hope I put enough detail in the review so that people can say "what the hell...by what you said it should have gotten a 5 or 6!" and reach their own conclusions based on content, balance, and personal value.

My biggest decisions are usually between a 6 and a 7, since the latter gets you put on the 8/8 games page.

I'm surprised you haven't received offers of employment yet from some of the industry leaders

Not industry leaders, but every once in a while I get contacted by a smaller site asking if I want to work with them. Honestly, getting the games for free and setting my own schedule is worth not getting paid. I like playing new games and I like writing, so it's a win-win, though of course it'd be even better if I made money off of it

The first two or three levels of the campaign serve as a tutorial in the full version. What's in the demo?

Re: DLC
Publishers make DLC because people buy it. Stop buying it. It used to be free until the pubs realized people would pay freakin' $15 for four maps.

Considering the reviews of both, I'm very sad to see Breach outselling Monday Night Combat.

I like Breach more than Monday Night Combat.

I am more positive about Breach than most of the gaming press. I think the combination of detailed (individual bricks and planks, non-scripted unlike BC2) destructible cover and the cover system makes for a methodically paced alternative to CoD and Counter-Strike, and I like it. Unlocks take a really long time to get, but I never felt at a drastic disadvantage being a n00b like in BC2.

That said, the developer released dedicated server files Friday, and I haven't been able to play a game since: apparently, whenever somebody leaves a server it doesn't free up a spot for somebody else, leaving new potential players at a constant loading screen with only ALT+F4 to exit the game.

pushing out a buggy product and then playing the sympathy card totally leads to higher sales.

It's still the top seller on Steam.

They have both in-game text chat and a server browser. People are just freaking out because the dedicated server file has to be tied to a Steam account for the moment. The Internets have to find something to complain about.
