I saw someone on Instagram getting her copy delivered today.

Is there anyone else already playing it? Gonna pick up mine tomorrow morning.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?


Not sure if this has been posted but this is pretty amusing considering the hype around SSDs and loading times

Edge is such trash. In every single issue they pan a game, and then give a higher score to an inferior game. This issue it was GoT getting put under the most intense microscope, while Valorant basically got a free pass. I'm sure Valorant is a good game, deserving of the 8 they gave it, but if they had any editorial consistency, in their review methodology, then Valorant should be critiqued to death just as much as GoT.

EDGE is all over the place, it's definitely one of the weirdest out there.

Like, who could ever give Diablo a 7, Diablo II a 6 and Diablo III a 9?

I think I know the answer, Edge.

My favorite review outlets are Easy Allies, and Destructoid. Both use the same reviewer for almost everything, except when the regular reviewer is overburdened or unfamiliar with a genre. And even then, they find somebody qualified from a small team of respectable staff.

Who is on the Edge review team? I feel like they have several shitty freelance writers with absolutely no taste in games.

Keep in mind, I don't think each game was reviewed by the same person. I got a lot of flack for that when I wrote for GamrReview here, and one thing I notice is that readers will scrutinize the hell out of any low score given to a game they love. sometimes that means bitching becuase the scores among the franchise are inconsistent, other times becuase they're too consistent....bah. Don't let it get to you. Reviews are subjective, and that's why I like Meta so much, it's the closest thing to an objective, overall opinion of a piece of media. but even though this is 'only' at an 83 right now, the actual content of the reviews praise the things I am excited for while criticising things I don't think will bother me or don't matter to me. 

The biggest complaint seems to be that the game gets a little grindey/repetitive/generic at points. I say...sometimes that's exactly what I want. Sure, it's not original or new or groundbreaking, but there's a reason I kept going back to Assassin's Creed games. they're simple and full of boring busywork, but they're still fun to play. They're pablum in interactive media form. It's comfort food. It's not a high-class meal, it's tasty and satisfying tripe. But I'm rambling. I should sleep.

Diablo was like the FF7 of WRPGs, to this day we still have games working around its loot and equips system.

Even if the reviewers change, giving D1 and D2 such mundane scores considering important and impressive they were really taints the whole brand image, imo.

Oh great. MC chose this game to gate of user reviews for a time, it'll be bombed out of spite now. Good idea though, a shitty solution to a shitty problem but a solution nonetheless.

Or, you know, they're trying their best to curb an issue becuase The Last of Us Part 2 is I think the worst metabombed games of all time, which was a Ps4 exclusive released just a month ago? 

Dude, context is key. Every post I see of yours lately seems to completely eschew any nuance and goes only for the broadest strokes in order to get your point across. That is a logical fallacy similar to a strawman. I think it's something like argumentum ad reductum or something. Not sure if that's a thing, but you're boiling points down to their most basic versions in order to make a point. It's bad logic and you employ it a lot. That and you seem to go overboard bemoaning progress, choosing instead to settle on regressive, traditionalist values. You are literally a part of the problem that has been stopping the rest of us from making positive change in the world becuase of your outdated, ignorant views on many things, most notably your concept of masculinity. (Referring to your recent post in the LAst of Us 2 thread where you bitched about how 'californians are trying to erase masculinity' or some ignorant bullshit)
