Some reasons that have nothing to do with the all-female cast as to why the trailer sucks:
- A lot of the ghosts look like clowns and cartoon characters. The ghosts and monsters in the original Ghost Busters were actually creepy as f***.
- The ghosts are all neon blue and the whole movie looks like a kids toy. The original movie had a somewhat gritty look that's completely lost.
- The humor is terrible and what they say is dumb. They actively tried to make the best trailer they could with some of the best parts of the movie and that's what they ended up with...
- This is too early to tell, but the male character seems objectified in the trailer. It wasn't the case in the early movies for the female one. There's nothing wrong with objectifying someone in my opinion, but it's simply not "Ghost Buster".
- Everyone was a relatable average joe, but in this, everyone is... too much.
- There are tons of cliche stereotypes in the trailer.
- Everything is CGI and looks terrible. The old movie had tons of practical effects.
I guess that's perfectly fine for the I-text-during-movies-crowd

I think this was the game with the SJW consultant EA hired? If so, I'd wait for reviews unless you like a social justice agenda story with your gaming.

Would you kindly f-off to Red Pill or somewhere similarly appropriate with this tedious SJW bullshit? For once there`s an exciting game on the horizon and I have to read about a "consultant"?

Seriously, the goddamn game is not even released yet and the hard-done alpha males (yeah, right) bawww already, for no reason at all.

Get a grip, wasn`t it supposed to be that disgusting womanfolk who`s into drama and constant whining? What happened to the real man`s cojones, amigo?
This.

I don't usually watch videos of other people playing games but I couldn't stop watching that beta video from polygon.
I want this game. Now.

It's a very polished EA. I found the underground sections less entertaining than roaming the planet surface. Let's see how it all turns out story-wise.

Thinking about starting a new website workorgame.com
Where I review games with regard to whether it's a real game or just work like Minecraft, [insert random crafting survival game] etc.
What do you think?!


If you think Minecraft is work, maybe you shouldn't be reviewing games...
Nowadays, I tend to avoid games with lots of crafting survival etc.
I go for great solo experiences like Dead Space or small doses of competitive fun like Quake 3 (or live).
Everything else reminds me too much of work. Growing old....

I seriously don't see any resemblance to Doom 1 or 2 at all. It's very much the same as Doom 3 with added quicktime events and mixed in with some of Quake 3 style multiplayer. Which looks slow paced and boring.
Not even close to Q3. Movement is totally messed up.

I've been in all the closed alphas for this game...I usually end up going back to Quake Live or UT4 after a little bit.

It's not terrible MP, it's just a lot of console feel and gimmicky stuff, doesn't feel like a true competitive arena shooter.
Also booted up the Steam version of Quake live yesterday. It's really the only thing you need when it comes to FPS deathmatch. But I also tried the UT reboot alpha thing. Not bad either.

UWP is pretty much beta, DX12 is pretty much beta and current gen nvidia hardware is known for its poor dx12 support. Saw this coming.

Well in terms of multiplayer this game is dead now.
I figured that out after the Alpha. Still a buy for me if the single player campaign is anywhere near Wolfenstein.

Thought as much from what I've seen in the Alpha. Anyway if the solo campaign is on par with the new Wolfenstein I'm happy.

I'm not that much into RTS games anymore but I gave it a shot when it was like 25 bucks a couple of weeks ago. I actually really liked it. It's not that heavy on micro management and that zone-control system appealed to me. Will try out the single player campaign (or whatever they call it) ASAP.
Edit: Can't be said enough: If you have a nvidia card you'll get zero advantage from the dx12 version...

Glad they're making improvements to Edge, but still more work to do.

1) Enable Right-Click in favorites and sort as desired (name, date, etc) unless I am missing something.

2) Allow user to determine, on the fly, where to save a file you're downloading.

3) Bing plug-ins (right-click functions)


How about fixing the fucking search bar? Enter a dot or other special char in your search and watch it burn...
