Funny contrast

Disclaimer: I am not a pro, but I am not an anti. I bought the games, but haven't played it yet since I decided to finish the collection I had started a year ago first.

Disclaimer 2: If you come here to post stupid rants about how game journalists where paid you can hit the big X at the top of your screen.

If find the contrast funny between this board being flooded out and me listening to gaming podcast from reviewers I trust. I don't trust them with my life and I don't trust them implicitly, but I'm talking about guys I got to know through podcast and realize I have similar tastes to them, which is really what everybody should do, find what works for you and once you do stick to it.

Just take GiantBomb for example, I am listening to the Giant Bombcast and they are having so much fun with DmC, praising the combat (saying NT nailed it), the level design and how the game ends on a high note that totally redefine this universe (or so they say, please no spoiler), so I find it's really a big contrast.

I am not saying you guys are wrong and they are right, I think the truth lays somewhere down the middle, but it was just a funny observation.

By the way it's not in a reviewing context, but really friends talking about how much fun they are having with something and it seems so fun and positive and genuine.

And then we come here and you guys have hate that seem also genuine, but this time so negative.

I guess it really depend on each person.

Your topic is meaningless and does not contribute in affecting the series' development. Just my opinion , it cannot be wrong derp.

Most of the staffers at Giantbomb were never DMC fans though. Brad Shoemaker who's the one that's most loudly singing praises of the game and wrote the five star review hadn't touched a DMC game since DMC1. When you compare that to a fanbase that loved exploring the much more technical combat of DMC3 and DMC4 in comparison, yeah you're going to get that wild contrast.

It's really not a funny contrast.

It's called hating something so much that you cannot accept it no matter what.

The fact that they can have that level of hate over a video game is what really needs to be addressed.

And I am not talking about the antis that come in here and make valid points.

There was a dude in a topic earlier that said he wished all of NT would commit suicide.

That is the kind of hate that I am talking about.

I am glad you were just joking.

However that is not really something you should joke about.

If others hadn't already sent death threats it would be easier to take as a joke.

Not to mention those who wishes Capcom and NT should go bankrupt.

I wonder...

How many death threats DID NT or Capcom receive? Personally, I think very few, but since they are, in essence, threats of shuffling one loose the mortal coil, people blow it out of proportion and make it sound like a countless amount.






But hey, what do I know? I just eat pizza, read books, and look at internet porn in the wee hours of the morning.

You know you could avoid posting that since it was pretty much my conclusion and last line.

The problem as I said is not that one group is wrong and one is right, but the antis here will try to make people believe it's a PoS and the pros from what I heard (haven't seen it) are acting like the game is perfect.
