Re: Why did GameCritics never catch on?

By the way, can't wait for the GTA V review. I just hope some people show up to argue with me about the misogyny in the game. Nobody took the bait in the post about PAX.

Re: Why did GameCritics never catch on?

The demand explanation makes sense. It's also that the critic-publisher power dynamic is so lopsided toward the publisher. I don't think outright paid reviews are common as /v/ thinks they are, but...

Why did GameCritics never catch on?

Whenever I think about a game, I have to read the GameCritics review. Whether I agree with the review or not, I value the opinion of the GameCritics writer writing under that brand.

In general,...

Re: Break Media = annoying

This is one of the big reasons I stopped visiting GameCritics as much as I used to, even though I love it so much. Whether I am on mobile or desktop, I get the Break Media ads every single time I...

Re: In Defense of Nintendo

Re: In Defense of Nintendo

Nintendo doesn't charge $60 for games because they are essentially still making Gamecube games. Even though they still operate at the old $50 price, they take a long time to discount their older...

Re: E3 2011 Thread

Microsoft's presentation was awful. Laggy Kinect games everywhere and Halo 4. Unfortunately they are going to make a ton of money with this lame effort.

Re: Fallout: New Vegas

The DLC for Fallout 3 and New Vegas have been more miss than hit. They tend to end up throwing out everything that made Fallout great and having you do busywork shooting braindead enemies or...

Unfortunately, as you near completion they throw it all out and hold your hand the rest of the way. The final three or four cases are interesting story-wise, but gameplay is completely braindead....

Re: LA Noire review

That's not his complaint. His complaint is that doubt might mean, "Come on Mr. So and So, you were there that night." not "YOU FUKKEN KILLED THE BITCH DIDN'T YOU?!"

Re: LA Noire review

How far are you into the game, because the way they set this up is brilliant.

First of all, the game is not strictly linear like Final Fantasy. Though the overall storyline continues, your actions...

Re: Gay Video Game Characters Only Okay If You Can Choose Not To Be

My question is, would it affect sales? They could always "deal with it" by not buying the game, even if the gameplay is something they would enjoy.

That Samus was revealed to be a woman at the...

Re: LA Noire review

The game is definitely buggy, and not in minor ways, more so than anything I've seen published by them. On Xbox 360 the frame rate drops are horrendous even in places where nothing much is going on....

Re: Is the price of the 3DS really the issue?

If you don't like 3D, then you are less likely to get the 3DS because you don't want to pay for something you won't use.

The 3D technology is reflected in the price of the product. Consumers...

Re: LA Noire review

Previews are notorious for being hyperbolic and inaccurate.

As an aside, every preview for a game will say that the AI is really improved and enemies are intelligent and crap like that.

Re: 3DS: "I haven't sold a single one"

There's nothing inherently wrong with with the 3DS, but consumers have pretty much rejected it.

Re: PS3 = Dead

A couple of years ago there were no PS3 exclusives that I was interested in. Now there are several.

Your credit card information is not safe anywhere. By using a credit card you accept the risk. Presumably, when you do notice abnormal activity, the credit card company will take care of it.
