Re: please rate this review: Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

Thanks for the feedback, but without some specific examples, I'm afraid I can't heed your advice. Any pressing places in particular?

Re: Please rate this review: Final Fantasy XIII

I think the presence of stubbornness and disagreement in this thread stems from a simple lack of reader comprehension. Note that op89x said exhaustive.

I've read 1up's review of FF13; there is no...

Re: Please rate this review: Final Fantasy XIII

Format and writing are secondary to reasoning and argument. This wasn't an attempt to debate your opinion of the game so much as it was one to bring light to, what I felt, was a pretty shoddy...

Re: Please rate this review: Final Fantasy XIII

This is just wrong. FFXIII has plenty of character development. Whether it's good or logical character development is up for debate, but to say that the characters don't go through any sort of change...

Re: Please rate this review: Heavy Rain

This is a good review, but comes across to me as a little formulaic and bland.

I agree with Brad, get rid of the synopsis stuff, namely paragraphs 2 and 4, and focus on the story/character...

Re: please rate this review: Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

You did indeed misread that section. Perhaps I wasn't clear enough, but basically, in the original Gold and Silver, the forest has been cleared, consistent with Kanto's theme of modernization, as you...

Please Rate this Review: Heavy Rain demo

Yeah, a review of a demo. I don't like the notion that all games need to be completed in order to be successfully written about. I didn't like this game, and to play the entire thing just so I can...

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

I got all 16 Badges in Pokémon SoulSilver... but Pokémon never really ends. Only when you turn the game off, really -- the good times you have with those little devils last forever.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

Oh, undoubtedly. I'm as nostalgic for that stuff as any long time player of the series. I don't think anything about this game was "lazy," though. I think most of those design decisions were made to...

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

You just used about every buzzword in the book. "Non-linearity;" "immersion;" -- these are the things the modern gamer craves. I must ask: why? You place the experience above all else; the...

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

Ok, the game is linear. So what? This past decade "linear" has achieved a weird notoriety that I don't understand. When presented with actual choice, as in FFXIII (the weapons management and...

Re: Heavy Rain Special Edition

It's neither. There are countless more adventure games that exceed Heavy Rain's storytelling abilities. Even Shenmue, terrible voice acting and all, succeeded more at what it was trying to do. Heavy...

Re: please rate this review: Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

But it's not the games' lack of "newness" that bugs me. It's the retarded reneging and jerryrigging with what made the original games great.

Re: please rate this review: Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

I call PR and PC BS on that explanation. Conceptually, yeah, it's pretty clear that its design comes from an origami crane, but as for its name: Porygon is polygon with an R. It's playing on the...

Re: Suggest an album.

I seem to be the only one on this forum with such tastes, but lately I've been listening to Common's Resurrection. One of my favorite hip-hop albums. Here's the most famous song from it:

Re: Should We Change The Way We Approach Reviews?

The poor state game reviews and criticism are in stems from the industry's market structure. Video games are treated as products first and foremost. Let's bring up the film comparison yet again: the...

This review is as juvenile as the kind of gamers No More Heroes was making fun of.

please rate this review: Final Fantasy XIII (impressions)

A brief disclaimer is in order:

This was written when I was about 4 hours into the game. Obviously, I can't properly "review" the game after merely 4 hours of play. However, I find my thoughts...

Re: Please Rate This Review: Demon's Souls

I like this piece very much. As others have said, maybe it isn't a "review," but the video game review is not a difficult craft to master, and in the end, not all that interesting to read or helpful...
