  1. I find that line hilarious lol. If you think they stand for anything more than a paycheck, you're crazy. They're not revolutionaries lol. They're guys that went to journalism school and want a job in their field lol. I'm sorry but I can't stop laughing at that.
  2. 1. No I wouldn't tell anyone. He did it for valid reasons IMO. That's more the fault of the review system as a whole as opposed to that one person. 2. If you think this isn't happening on a massive scale, you're crazy. The second someone cashes a paycheck, they have to play by certain rules to keep that paycheck coming, and they will.
  3. I didn't feel like he was calling me out lol. If what I said sounded defensive, I didn't mean for it too. Just keeping the conversation going.
  4. I educate myself and I do look to the occasional reviews that talk about factual things and talk about intricacies of gameplay mechanics and stuff. But it's not easy to find that in the sea of personal opinion. Looking at a hard number on something like metacritic is pointless and should be demonized IMO. The review system as a whole is a joke though. DmC was a great example of this for me. I know a guy that gave it a negative review, when I knew for a fact that he liked it. When I asked him why he said "if I disagree with AngryJoe, I risk losing mutual subscribers, which means my kids might not eat next week. I'm not risking that". From that moment on, I've found it extremely hard to take reviews seriously. A system where someones paycheck is based on their opinion fitting a mold should be demonized IMO. At the end of the day, a friend will buy the game eventually and I'll take their opinion over a reviewers any day. I have an idea of what they like, they have an idea of what I like. That opinion is a million times more valuable to me.
  5. For me personally, I've just liked too many things that got bad reviews to ever take reviews at face value. I loved Mass Effect Andromeda and I would've missed out on a great week of gaming if I had listened to reviews. I hated Last of Us, but if I trusted reviews they would've convinced me it was gods gift to gaming and I would've been out 60$. No one knows what i'm gonna like except for me, so I'd rather have faith in my own gut feeling than put faith in a strangers opinion.
  6. I made an attractive female character in an MMO... Since then I've had 3 guys hit on me in two days. I'm officially uncomfortable lol.

      @LucianaRosethorn I've heard from girls that it was a pretty big problem. I've even heard girls say that they use a manly sounding name and never go on mic just to avoid it. I just always assumed they were exaggerating but holy crap. Gamers be desperate I guess lol.

      It's any person who's desperate, no matter where you go they're there. I've never pretended to be a man or avoided mentioning I'm a girl, why should I? After all there a block and report button for a reason. xD

       

      I mean girls don't really help themselves, most of the time they'll have most of their body on show just to get what they want, then complain men keep looking at them and such. It's infuriating, along with "girls need more power", no, no we don't.

      @KingGuy420 At least you didn't pose as a girl in MapleStory to get 500,000 mesos and kickass armor on a new character to speed things up like I did :P 

  7. There's one review there where a guy gave it a 30 because he personally found it boring. He knocked 70 points off for a completely subjective fault. I seriously fucking hate the modern review systems. The day I let someone else tell me whether I like a game or not is the day I end it all lol.
  8. I've never saw this before but I thought it was pretty cool

    Nintendo Power's first issue and last issue. Cool way to bookend a cool magazine.

      I miss those posters back in the days.

  9. Wow, that's kind of a prick job. Normally, the trade off for micro transactions being in a game is increased support for that game. Not everyone sees that as a fair trade but it is what it is. Micro transactions with nothing in return? That's a level of scum baggery usually reserved for WB games and NetherRealm. Even EA doesn't sink that low lol.
  10. Seems it's not gonna be out till 10pm ET. I was hoping it would roll out when the store updates =/
  11. Seems NG+ is coming too. Not like a "harder playthrough with all your gear" but a "fresh playthrough with some stuff carried over". Keyblades seem to be the only thing confirmed so far. https://support.jp.square-enix.com/news.php?id=7922&la=0&n=2&drt=1556010000&tag=2def4814c9c3775c55987ba6e8e6380ba8924340
  12. Seems KH3 is getting a NG+ mode alongside Critical mode. Didn't see that coming.

      That's a popular thing to do lately. I'm curious if anything carries over to NG+.

      @Dragon-Archon the patch note uses Keyblades as an example. Beyond that, who knows lol.

      Sweet, would be nice to have Ultima Weapon from the start :awesome: .

  13. #102 Borderlands Remaster

     

    Second plat in a day. I don't remember the last time I did that. Probably been awhile lol.

  14. Delta from BioShock 2. I'm not worried lol.
  15. #101 BioShock 2

     

    It's about damn time I got all 3 games in the series platinum'd. Such a great series. Always nice to go back.

  16. I've been waiting for this announcement. Been checking every day lol.
  17. Just had my ps4 crash and corrupt my save. I think that's the first time I've ever had that happen >.<

    1. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Oh that's terrible! I read on a trophy guide somewhere that bioshock was prone to crashes but  I didn't know you were able to corrupt your saves :/.

       

      When it corrupted your save was it the one you were currently on or was it all saves in the games? Because if it's former then hopefully you can move forward with this and just do two saves everytime you want to save to have one as back-up

    2. KingGuy420

      KingGuy420

      It crashed while I was saving so that's why it corrupted lol. I'm playing BioShock 2. I was saving before leaving an area and had to revert to the auto save at the start of the area. Only lost like 2 hours, if that.

       

      Since then I've been keeping two saves and thank God I have been. I just got a game breaking glitch where my plasmid hand straight up disappeared and wouldn't come back.

    3. DamagingRob

      I'd better keep this in mind whenever I get around to playing them.. I've had plenty of games crash, but never got a corrupted save. 

  18. It's because 'Murica loves it's violence. It's like a couple years ago on Walking Dead they unveiled that a character was gay by having him kiss his boyfriend. The next day Twitter was filled with "WTF my kids were watching that, now I have to explain homosexuality to them!!!!". I just couldn't wrap my mind around the fact that these people let their kids watch ultra violence, but a tiny bit of man love is across the line. And it seemed to be the winning side of the argument. The people disagreeing were the odd man out. That's just the way the US works I guess. Blood, guns, murder, and good ol christian values lol. In all seriousness though, import laws vs. being made local probably has a bit to do with it too.
  19. I hate when they do this. Like "oh you're waiting patiently for the village and pillage expansion? We'll here's 90% of the stuff that's coming with it but we're holding back the main part to work on it some more". Like, come on man. I just want the damn villager overhaul lol.
  20. There's gonna be more stuff to trade points for when BL3 comes out. 3 keys isn't worth it right now lol.
  21. What is this? There's no new content is there? I've been waiting like crazy for the villager update lol.
  22. Arkham Knight probably. Got on the fastest achievers list, on my birthday. That was a good one.
  23. If you want to look at a good thing negatively, that's your choice. You say that they don't have to pay for exclusivity to get people to come over since doing a good thing would be enough, but were do you see the evidence of that? If that was the case, people would be going there now instead of whining about using a second launcher lol. Also what makes you think they're using Fortnite money? I'm assuming they used Fortnite profits to get the game store off the ground in the first place. But most companies don't take money from one division to help another division. That's not how major corporations work. You're making an awful lot of assumptions based on absolutely nothing.... but that's the internet hate culture for ya lol.
  24. The whole idea behind the Epic store is that they take much less of a cut off the back end to help indie devs grow. The idea behind paying bigger games for exclusivity is to get more eyes on the indie games. By the time they pay for this exclusivity and take a huge loss on their cut, they only make about 10-20% of what Steam would make off the same game, if not less. If that's them swinging their monetary dick around, than I might not know what that phrase means lol.
  25. I have to admit, as far as Mania's go, I thought that was one of the weaker ones I've ever watched. Pretty much every match had a considerable amount of sloppy moves. Rollins going from completely beaten down to winning without any real build up was just bad. The announcers raving that Batista had no ring rust after he tripped on his way into the ring was hilarious. Kurt Angle getting robbed.... man, what do ya even say about that? But seeing Kofi win that belt after over a decade of putting in work made watching that 5 hour show worth it. Watching his son raise that belt above his head just might be one of my favorite Wrestlemania moments ever. After watching that guy be consistently great for all these years, it was nice to see it finally pay off. Even if he does lose it within the month, it was worth it.
