Thanks for not buying Majin, you dickholes.


reminds of me of when i made that "Asshole" thread for people who didn't buy Yakuza , good thing Yakuza became a lot more popular from back then, i think its because of Exclusivity and less about the fact that its a great game =/

Folklore was really cool, a unique vibe. Sad news.



Damn I am a glutton for punishment, but there is a joke here, and someone has to point it out. The PS3 curse is alive and well. First it was Lair and Factor Five. Then it was Haze and Free Radical. Now it is Folklore and Game Republic. What do they all have in common they brought exclusive games to the PS3 early in its life. Anyway it seems that Sony is a fickle mistress she strangles her lovers to death if they do not deliver. Yes it is a bad joke, but so were the antics in these forums when these games were placed on pedestals. I just had to point this out, because there is well some kind of symmetry at work in all of this.

Folklore is overrated, very repetitive, most people love it just because it is a PS3 exclusive when there wasn't that much PS3 exclusives back in the day,

Majin is their best game, and very underrated, i have a feeling that it might have the same cult following as Beyond Good and Evil because its a good game that no one bought, you should buy it now before it gets out of stock!

You made all of that up.

I'll get Majin eventually, but the demo wasn't that great to me because of the battle system. How is the battle system in the full game? Seeing as how I hardly hear any mention of Majin and I always see it in stock on Amazon, I don't think it's in any danger of going out of stock for a while.

I wasn't on any forums back then so I don't know about any of the hype that was going on, but I was personally excited for Lair. Too bad I damn near threw my controller out a window every time I tried to maneuver that damn dragon with sixaxis.

i remember Majin did so bad that it wasn't even mentioned in the "greatest flops" threads because nobody seemed to know it existed.

i loved the game though



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

Well folklore being repetitive is something very subjective. I am far into the game and so far I have enjoyed it and I think it has a great story. You can cry repetitive all you want but hmm lets see.....Mario games are all about jumping and running, GoW plume of prometheus your way through half the mobs, Halo, keep shooting and go for headshots (oooohhh a short space battle in Reach). Every game has a level of repetitiveness, I think Folklore has a pretty good story and the gameplay varies based on the Folk you end up capturing and which combinations you use and that is what makes it fun, so seriously stop crying "repetitive" cuz it seriously gets old.



Make games, not war (that goes for ridiculous fanboys)

I may be the next Maelstorm or not, you be the judge http://videogamesgrow.blogspot.com/  hopefully I can be more of an asset than a fanboy to VGC hehe.

Sure those other games are repetitive, but folklore has you play each level twice, once with Ellen and once with Keats,with barely any difference between both characters, and as far as i can tell, i think Keats really is just a side character, he just follows Ellen uncover her true self , while he looks around in the distance being all "i'm a freelance journalist lulz", i don't even know why hes in this game.

as for the storyline its Folklore's best trait, the more you play it the more the story becomes complex, the storyline is the reason why i kept playing the game to the end, not the gameplay, and also the fact that the creators are very inspired Faerie mytholigies that i've read a lot in books (great books i might add)

with that said i don't think the game deserves a 9.5/10 , thats just plain wrong, also the fact that most people think the game is an RPG is also wrong, its more like DMC than an RPG.
