Xenoblade.


Care to evaluate as to why?


While I personally enjoyed Xenonlade. I can understand why some people may have a problem with it.

- After level 40ish you never get anymore abilities

- Maps are wayyy to big. This would be alright if their was actual content to sustain the maps.

- Sidequests are the same. Kill X, Collect X

- Battle System never really requires thinking or strategy (does on occassion)

- Sidequests over level your character making the game dull

- Too many monster pallet swaps

Some of the reasons I could think of that someone may not like the game. As I said great game and I really like it but it has quite a few problems. Then again, what game doesn't nowadays?


What did you think of Shadow of the colossus on the PS2?


To be honest? I thought it was ok but the technical issues made the game "meh" to me.

Duke Nuken Forever I was looking forward to it and I was going to buy it regardless of average reviews
but it got bad reviews so I pass on that gem

No More Heroes, for a long time i kept hearing about this "amazing" game for Wii. Other games i wanted kept getting in the way so i never got around to getting it. PS3 version was announced, so i said WTH might as well wait for the version with extra stuff and get the sequel on Wii. Finally played it(PSN demo version) and man im I glad I never got the game. It is not good. You run down corridors beating up boring enemies with boring gameplay. The bosses look interesting, but there not all that either. I cant figure out how people gave this game high scores. Did they drop their standards because its on Wii and they didnt expect much, or was it pity points??

Crysis2, was going to get day one, but decided to get KZ3 instead. Glad I did. Crysis2 is a good game, but not 9,0 good. Too many glitches for that. Are people just throwing high scores at games for the hell of it?? Sure the graphics are good, but that means nothing when the character design is bland and the enemies get stuck it place. KZ3 has great graphics and nary a glitch in sight


I did the exact same thing for both No More Heroes AND Crysis 2.

I'd also have to say Fallout. Post Apocalyptic games just seem so boring and lazy to me. Hey explore this desolate turd/vomit colored world and shoot mutant meat monsters who are either wearing overalls, leather, or completely naked!!!!

I wish I passed on No More Heroes, that game is and i'll say it. F**KING AWFUL :P

It's sad because I was SOOOOOOOOOOO hyped for it when it was announced that it was going multiplat. Nintendo could've kept that bullshit.

same here, i was excited, gonna be day 1 for me. But damn it wasnt that great. The only reason why it was so hyped on Wii, is because it was one of the few M rated games and it was exclusive. Had it been multiplat from day 1 it would have gotten the attention is actually deserved



Marvel vs. Capcom 3. When I first heard about this game, I went batshit crazy with excitement. I still have the trailers saved to my PS3, 360, and cell phone. The closer we got to the games release, the less I wanted it. The day it came out, I just felt a whole lot of "meh". Now, I don't even want it for cheap. My friend at work who actually plays Street Fighter 4 competitively (even used vactation days to compete in a tournament) bought MvC3 on day one. A couple of days later, he went back to Street Fighter.

And the ultimate validation: Capcom is releasing the updated version, soon. I didn't repeat my mistake of buying SF4 followed by SSF4 (making the first totally irrelevant).

That's why I always found it amusing whenever PS3 owners celebrated, because due to Move certain Wii third party games would be coming over. All those games had minimal worth at best, so "losing" them really didn't matter.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

GOD i wish i did this, now I have a useless copy of Mvs.C3 that just pisses me off when i look at it, SF3 online almost makes up for it. Almost

Im a multiplay owner so I didnt have cause to celebrate, Its not about worth, if you didnt own a Wii some people were just happy to play a game they wanted that they could not before, nothing wrong with celebrating that. BUT some are just zeolots and wanted to say "hahaha, we took your games" its pathetice and immature IMHO.
