AMIDOINITRITE?


I have been keeping up with Gametrailers for about a month and havent seen them say anything in favor of MS. Makes me wonder why I still keep up with them seeing as I enjoy playing on my Xbox 360.

wow, didn't think this thread would go on for this long. I personally love gravity rush and thinks it's tbe best game on the vita atm. as for gamespot I wont bash them as I haven't read the review, but i frankly never cared for their site and their reviews.

they simple want money from the publisher or some shit cause their reviews are lame and garbage.

zelda, gravity rush and many other games got trolled by them ...

did you guys watch this :

http://www.gamespot.com/features/when-did-regenerating-health-become-realistic-6380781/ ( this guy is by far the worst moron they have in the crew ...)

then the dev defend the game here :
http://e3.gamespot.com/video/6381457/a-matter-of-authenticity

So, I read this post, and then try to see what exactly the EA developers had said before the interview to confirm if the guy at Gamespot was a moron or not, because what I read from the original article was a beef about the pitch for realism.  I then saw I had to spend like 20 minutes, adding to about 5+ minutes of googling for information regarding the game itself, to see what was said.  I then realize I have no interest in Warfighter and it isn't even on my radar to get, and i could care less about the guy at Gamespot, or even what Gamespot says.  This, combined with looking at a thread about ratings going on like 13 pages about a game I don't care about, complaining that a game liked didn't get a high rating, has me wondering WTF am I spending my time on.

Sorry, I have spent too much time on Warfighter now, so pardon me for not caring to look up the minutia to be right about something I don't care about, and if it disappeared (Warfighter) my life wouldn't be changed in the least.  As for ratings, I am seeing why you can't do professional journalism with videogames, because the pay is too little, and too many people complain.  The entire business is a promotion racket, where you had bad score inflation.  It is entirely useless at this point.  

Anyhow, carry on.  Warfighter is a 10/10 and the guy at Gamespot is both an moron and a genius.  Pick whatever view you want me to say, and consider that to be mine here.

what ?



 

The review system altogether is just flawed. It seems like for a hyped game, anything under a 9 gets called a flop.

Should be more like:

10 - Absolute perfection, only maybe a game or two per generation hits this mark
9 - Amazing, should be played/bought by all
8 - Great game, and should be considered a success even for a highly hyped game
7 - Above average game, but a bit disappointing for a highly hyped game
6 - Average game, a disappointment for a sequel or hyped new IP
5- Mediocre, should be ignored except by hardcore fans of the series/genre...but a couple good patches might save it
3/4 - Really bad, borderline unplayable
1/2 - Horrid piece of shit, no amount of patches could save it
0 - Unplayable

They give below average scores to some good games such as Star Ocean and Persona for the PSP.

Persona 3 Portable got an 8.5 from them which is pretty good for a third release. As for Persona 1, it's pretty much agreed in GS' community that the game isn't very good. Lots of people consider it the worst in the series.

Wasnt talking about P3P or P1P, though I found P1P to be really good o.o.

Was actually talking about this persona: http://www.gamespot.com/shin-megami-tensei-persona-2-innocent-sin/

The game is pretty much almost identical to the original PS1 version with a few new additions and a new HUD.

Even though the original got a better score: http://www.gamespot.com/persona-2-innocent-sin/

But I guess its understandable as the reviewer might of been different.

(I didnt bother checking who reviewed it so apologies to that).

It was a horrid review from a horrid site, but a number of other sites (Metro, Destructoid, GiantBomb) also gave it a similar score:

http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-vita/gravity-rush/critic-reviews

Seems to split opinion. Expect more middling scores like this in the future.

Destructoid = Jim Sterling

GiantBomb = Jeff Gerstmann and co

Metro = what

Looks like Europeans like it more than Americans, with the top reviews coming from Denmark, France, UK, Italy etc.

Don't know what you're implying, but Jeff is a pretty good reviewer. He makes a lot of valid points in his reviews imo. A lot of users from GS like Jeff and GiantBomb. Not sure why they're still doing there at GameSpot though.

you didnt answered my question
taking in count the gameplay the game fits perfectly with Wiimote+nunchuck configuration
imo better than the touch/motion controls
so now you guys like those gimmicks?
it would be much better on the Wii ...


I'm not going to comment on speculations, and opinions. Especially from someone who didn't play the game, and bases their statement on what they seen instead of playing it first hand.

I really hope you're trolling, because if you're not then it is a damn shame.



aren't most of the users on Gamespot Sony fans?

Nintendo fans dislike gamespot since the day of TP or maybe before that even

I tried Gravity Rush's demo a while back. It's the only reason I'd buy a Vita... but not now. I'll wait a few years as I did with my PSP. It was even better to wait, because my PSP is the 3000 moddel, so I think I'll wait and then buy it. But I loved the graphics, and the gameplay was ok. Lot's of motion controls, but they all were optional.

P.S. (bit off topic) As a dedicated Zelda fan, to me Skyward Sword is the worst Zelda game I've ever played, and I felt good when GS gave it that 7.5 and even then I thought they were to generous, but that is a topic for another time.
